Figma has really helped us align with the design system code base when we deprecate components. I've been reading the great blog posts from Figma for tips and tricks, but haven't seen this topic come up yet. Hope this article I wrote helps a few other folks…
Local Styles - Batch?
Man oh man. While building a design system, I’ve wasted soooooo much time just changing one local style (right column window). Is there not a way to bulk/batch naming, changes? For example, if I have to change the category name of all my gray/grey (big discussion there alone), I…
What does your early-stage exploration look like in Figma?
One of my favorite parts of the design process is when you're first getting started and are looking for inspiration for your project ahead, moving fast with different ideas, and exploring. I’m curious of what everyone’s early exploration processes look like. How do you iterate…
Figma SVGs for Android import - too long paths cause the app to crash
Hi everybody, First of all, I find Figma a great and versatile tool. It creates a nice SVG code which is almost the best from all tools I've used so far (Illustrator, Affinity Designer, online SVG optimizers). The only thing I miss, which is so annoying, is no control over how…

I've got a pretty good grasp on how layout grids work and using them quite a bit for components with things like padding and responsive layouts. Baseline grids are still something I haven't tackled fully. Does anyone have any methods they use or techniques they'd like to share?
Embed zoomed image-only in Confluence
I've recently switched over from Sketch/InVision to using Figma, and in general it's a real improvement. Where I'm still having issues is in workflow, where screen designs are documented in Confluence. In InVision, it was relatively simple to just pick a screen and get embed…
Is there a Keyboard Command to rotate object ( Figma Win App?)
Surely it's there and I just cant find it? Please let me know where/what it is
Smart selection items
Hello, fellow figma users. I've got a little question and hope somebody is able to answer it. My problem is following: when I use Tidy Up and Smart Selection afterwards, I can't select one of items to switch places because I'm too zoomed out and see pink dot instead of pink…
