Is there an easy way to paste a captured screenshot (retina) and paste it into Figma at the correct width/height. Or is there a quick keyboard shortcut to reduce an image's width/height by 50%?

Copy/Paste Components = Lost Prototype Links (Solved)

Here's the issue I was having: From the prototype view, I was copying all artboards from a master-library file to a separate file and losing many of the prototype connections—the components with missing links were pasted as instances rather than master components. How I got it…

Is there a way to use REM as your font-size unit?

Trying to have some alignment amongst product designers and software engineers here by utilizing the same unit for font-size. We're wanting to use REM for some of our font types (H1, H2, H3, etc.) so that they'll scale based on viewport size. Is there a way to go about having…
