What's New

  • Earlier this week, we announced that Figma supports animated GIFs in prototypes! Simply add a GIF to your file and watch it come to life when you click “Present.” Check out our blog post for more details and some animation inspiration. 
  • When you need to reference an older version, you can now directly link to that specific file version. Just click "Copy Link" to grab the URL. 

  • Interacting with a mobile prototype now better mimics the behavior of mobile apps/devices in real life, so designs feel like the real thing.
    • Momentum scrolling: When you scroll a mobile prototype, we now support momentum scrolling (aka fling to scroll).
    • Overscroll: Figma mobile prototypes now support overscroll behavior.
    • Touch cursor: Instead of a mouse cursor, you can now walk through a mobile prototype with our new touch cursor.
  • Now, you can position layout grids to the right or to the bottom of a frame! This is helpful if you're designing a layout with a left sidebar and/or trying to visualize padding at the bottom of a component or frame.

Bug Fixes
  • GIFs in the Figma Mirror app were not working when we launched GIF support on Tuesday. This was fixed the next day. 
  • We fixed a bug where Figma would change the color of your selected item unintentionally when you are zooming the canvas with the color picker open. 
  • Shared Fonts would sometimes not show up for some users. This is now fixed. 
  • Sometimes, Text Styles failed to work the first time they are used. This now works as expected.
  • Previously, publishing to the Team Library would sometimes fail. This has been fixed. 
  • The system would sometimes prompt you to update from the Team Library when nothing had changed. This no longer occurs.

What's New

  • Now, you can easily drag and drop images directly into a fill in the properties panel. It’s a time-saving detail that makes placing images a bit easier.

What's New

For Admins on the Organization plan, you can now export a list of users to a CSV, that includes additional data about each user beyond what’s available on the Members dashboard. For example, additional information like Job Title, Date Added, and Teams are useful if you want to do further analysis of user activity by these attributes.

Also, with SCIM configured, you can provide even more user attributes like cost center ID, division, department, and more. This data will be accessible through the CSV export, so you can do things like sort out which departments and organizations should help pay for Figma.

What's New

  • For Figma admins, you sometimes need to send an email with updates or questions to your users. To make this easier, you can now grab everyone’s emails in Figma by bulk copying their email addresses and then paste it into your preferred email app. 

Bug Fixes
  • Previously, multiplayer selection would appear above rulers. We released a fix, so rulers now always appear above selections.
  • Previously in view-only mode, esc would not deselect everything. Now, you can quickly deselect everything with esc.

What's New

  • Plugins are coming to Figma. We’re looking for developers to help us build and shape our APIs. Apply to join the beta
  • When you make changes to an instance, you can now push those overrides to the master component. (Note: This only works for components within the same file and does not override components in your team library.)

Bug Fixes:
  • We fixed a bug where your nudge setting was not respected when adjusting a text object’s line height.
  • We also fixed a rare bug where Resize to Fit for Frames would not resize perfectly and leave an extra pixel of space

What's New

  • For customers on the Organization plan, we’ve released a couple updates to the Admin Console, so admins have more visibility into user and billing activity:
    • On the Members dashboard, you’ll find three new activity stats that provide a snapshot of each user’s activity: 
      • Date upgraded: the date the user was upgraded to the Organization plan 
      • Last edit: how long it’s been since the user has edited a Figma file
      • Last seen: how long it’s been since the user has visited a Figma link
    • We’ve also starting rolling out a new billing dashboard, where admins can view their current and past billings to track Figma spend over time.

Bug Fixes:
  • When editing individual corner radiuses, the icon once again shows you which corner you are editing.
  • In the past, we sometimes would prompt you for updates on components that had not actually changed. This bug has been fixed.
  • We fixed a bug that makes Tidy Up” work more reliably when you’re using the Smart Selection feature.

What's New


  • The code panel now features some new additions, like text styles names and font feature settings. This provides additional context during developer hand-off. Help your developers quickly understand what style and font settings to use when implementing your design. 

Bug Fixes:

  • Previously, the line height for a text style in the code panel would appear incorrectly. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, an invisible style prevented you from publishing a style to your team library. This has also been fixed.
