What's New This Week

Fixed
  • File Space
    • Sometimes, images would appear upside down in the File Thumbnails. We fixed this so images in the thumbnails appear the same way they do in the files
  • Team Library
    • Copying and pasting an unpublished component to another file would require you to manually add it to the library before you could publish it. We now do this automatically so you can quickly publish components to your Team Library.
  • Styles
    • In the Desktop App, "Go to Master Style" would incorrectly prompt you to restore a component. We now correctly switch you to the master file without a prompt.
    • Multiple selection that contain objects with and without styles would prevent you from editing their properties in the Properties Panel. We fixed this so you can edit values for multiple selection more quickly.
    • Moving a style would show you an unpublished prompt in the new and original file. We now move the style successfully without any unnecessary publish prompts.

What's New This Week

Improved

  • We now show Text Style descriptions as tooltips when hovering over them in the Properties Panel
  • The Instance Swapping menu now better separates local instances and instances from the Team Library


Fixed

  • In some situations, the Restart button would not appear at the end of a prototype. We fixed this so you can always restart your prototypes.
  • Fixed a bug where the preview in Figma Mirror would not update correctly if your device briefly lost its data connection
  • Styles
    • Adding a style to a frame will now enable layout grids on the file so you can see the applied style
    • Changing an object's style would not hide the selection. We now briefly hide the selection when changing an object's style so you can better see the change.
  • Editor
    • When you are missing the fonts used in a file, creating new text objects sometimes results in erratic behavior. We fixed this so new text objects are created in Roboto in these rare situations.
    • Making a new group would not always scroll the Layers Panel to the new group. We now scroll to the new group so you can stay organized.
  • Team Library
    • Pasting components with nested instances into a new file would sometimes result in lost overrides. We fixed this so your pasted components should retain all overrides.
    • We sometimes displayed duplicate components in our search results. We fixed this so you should see a single result for each component
    • Instances with the same name would not appear correctly in the Instance Swapping Menu. We've fixed this so instances with the same name appear as separate options.

What's New This Week

New



Improved

  • For files that use both local components and components from the Team Library, we now show you which components are being used from the Team Library in a separate section in the components tab
  • We've made the hide option for fills and strokes available again with one click


Fixed

  • Fixed a bug that prevented pasting Style Properties between tabs in the Desktop App
  • Editor
    • Moving gradient stops on the canvas can sometimes cause it to flicker. We fixed this so you can adjust your gradients reliably
    • Moving the cursor using your keyboard in a text object would sometimes behave incorrectly. We now move the cursor between different lines correctly.
  • Prototypes
    • Navigating away from an prototype window would prevent new prototypes from launching. We fixed this so your prototypes will always be visible
    • Background blurs would sometimes appear outside of the containing frame. We fixed this so background blurs appear correctly when viewed in your prototypes.
  • Team Library
    • Resetting effects and export overrides for instances did not work. We fixed this so resetting effects and overrides will work as expected.

#FigmaProtoWeek!!

Improved
  • Improved the Properties Panel UI to be more condensed

Fixed
  • Fixed a bug that prevented images in multi-page Sketch files from appearing in Figma.
  • SVG Export
    • Fixed a bug that prevented our SVG exports from displaying shadows correctly in Safari
    • Fixed a bug where rotated rectangles with an inside or outside stroke would not appear correctly
    • Rotated circles would export at an incorrect location. We fixed this so rotated circles appear in the right location
  • Prototypes
    • Prototype Embeds were not appearing with the scale mode that was originally set. We now respect the scale mode that you've set
    • Fixed a bug where some gradients would appear differently in your prototype
    • Moving an entire prototype to a different page would reset all connections. We fixed this so prototypes are preserved when moving them to a different page.
  • Styles
    • Layout Grid Styles would sometimes not appear correctly when applied to a frame. We fixed this so you should always see the Layout Grids when applying them as a style.
    • For some View-Only users, the style name would not appear in the Code tab. We fixed this so you should always be able to see which style were used for a shape or text object.
    • For text objects, the style previews were not taking advanced type transforms into account. We now display Text Style previews with any advanced type settings that are applied.
    • Swapping instances which used different styles would sometimes result in the Properties Panel displaying the wrong Fill Style. We fixed this so the Fill Style always matches your selection.

What's New This Week


Improved
  • Style pickers now appear as pop-ups instead of floating windows to make it easer to swap styles quickly
  • We now group italic font styles separately from the rest of the font styles to help move between weights more quickly

Fixed
  • Clicking the export setting popover would not dismiss the window. We fixed this so clicking on the ••• button will correctly dismiss the export settings.
  • Restoring a deleted style would not work correctly for everyone viewing a file. We fixed this so all files are updated correctly when restoring deleted styles.
  • Pasting deeply nested instances into new files would sometimes result in them being converted into frames instead. We fixed this so the instances are preserved
  • Prototypes
    • The "Show Hotspot Hints on Click" setting would not persist when reloading the prototype or when someone else opened the same prototype. We now preserve this setting when you share the prototype so you can maintain control over hotspot hints.
    • Fixed a bug where the prototype UI would hide immediately after clicking the arrows, preventing you from clicking through a prototype. We now keep the arrows in view so you can navigate a prototype with the UI arrows.
    • Refreshing a prototype would reset the scale mode to the Fill mode. We now preserve the scale mode when refreshing a prototype

Desktop App Release 63

Changes
  • We improved to load time especially for large files
  • We now remember the page and the position in the canvas when restarting the desktop app
  • Fixed opening files in a background tab or a new window

You might also notice that we bumped the desktop app version from 3.6.15 to 63. We're changing our versioning scheme to avoid confusion with the Figma editor version.

What's New This Week

Improved
  • You can now add descriptions to individual styles
  • We've removed transforms wherever possible for SVG exports


Fixed
  • Fixed a bug that prevented you from using TypeKit fonts in Figma
  • Styles
    • In some circumstances, the Properties Panel would not display all the properties of the selected object correctly. We fixed this so the Properties Panel always matches your selection.
    • Previously, restoring a style on an object would require two undo actions. Now, a single undo action will apply the removed style.
    • Fixed a bug that prevented publishing a style if it was moved between files
  • Prototypes
    • Rotating a frame and then rotating it back to 0° would prevent it from acting as a scrolling frame. We fixed this so you should always be able to scroll portrait frames correctly.
    • Reordering layers would not work as expected when moving between SCROLL or FIXED positions. We fixed this so reordering layers works as expected.
    • Very large images would appear briefly and then disappear. We fixed this so large images are always visible
