What's New This Week

New

  • New alignment shortcuts for Windows and ChromeOS
    • alt + A:  Align left
    • alt + D:  Align right
    • alt + W: Align top
    • alt + S:  Align bottom
    • alt + H:  Align horizontal centers
    • alt + V:  Align vertical centers
    • shift + ctrl + alt + H: Distribute horizontal spacing
    • shift + ctrl + alt + V: Distribute vertical spacing


Improved

  • Improved word wrapping for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages
  • Styles are now sorted correctly in the color picker window
  • Letter spacing, line height, and font size shortcuts will now work when you’re in text edit mode


Fixed

  • Sometimes a new file could open with a blank Properties Panel. We fixed this so it is always visible.
  • Creating a new text object while an existing one was selected would sometimes create a 0-width text-object. We fixed this so text boxes do not start with a 0-width.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the pen tool dot from disappearing when switching away from the pen tool.
  • Previously, we would show a star for the drafts folder that didn't do anything. We removed it since your drafts are always available in the file browser.
  • Flattening lines with an inside or outside stroke would double the stroke width incorrectly. Now, flattening a line will not change the stroke width.
  • Replacing a single highlighted digit in the transform panel would replace the entire value. Now, we correctly replace only the highlighted value instead of the entire value.
  • Opening several files would sometimes result in some of them from loading. We fixed this so your files will always open on the first attempt.
  • Importing a Sketch file over a very slow internet connection would result in a failed upload. We fixed this so you can successfully import files over a slow internet connection.
  • The frame background color would always be visible in the export preview regardless of the Show in Exports setting. We fixed this to respect the setting.
  • Some of the icons in the Material Icon font would show the wrong icon. We fixed this so your icons should appear correctly now.
  • Sometimes deleted transitions would still appear when you view your prototypes. We fixed this so deleted transitions will no longer appear.
  • Fixed a bug where updating a text style did not update all instances of that style correctly.

What's New This Week

New

  • You can now delete your own accounts

Fixed

  • Pasting an SVG will now parent correctly into frames and groups
  • Pasting into a frame multiple times can sometimes lose the offset. We now do a better job of preserving the offset
  • Prototyping
    • Fixed footers that are groups will now show up correctly when viewing prototypes
    • Fixed a bug that prevented the Preserve scroll position setting from working on mobile devices
    • Toggling the “Preserve scroll position” setting will no longer trigger the animation preview in the prototype tab
    • Cycling through your prototype really quickly sometimes caused the prototype to appear outside of the device frame. We fixed this so everything should appear within the device frame.

Figma 3.0

New

  • Figma 3.0!
    • Styles
    • Our new Organization tier
    • Upgraded Prototyping (device frames, scrolling, fixed elements, & more!)

What's New This Week

Fixed

  • You can now override the Clip Content setting for instances
  • Creating a new text object would sometimes create a tiny fixed-width text box. We now prevent these tiny boxes from appearing whenever you click on the canvas with the text tool
  • The cursor for new text objects with justified alignment would sometimes appear outside of the text box. We fixed this so the cursor always appears inside the text box
  • We now show frame presets in the prototype tab when you select the frame tool

Desktop App 3.6.15

Fixed
  • Opening a prototype or clicking Go To Master Component would always open the new file at the end of the tab strip. Now, it will open right next to the file you’re currently viewing
  • Closing a tab for a file that you’re not currently viewing would switch you to that tab. Now, you can close other tabs without having to switch to the tabs
  • The Full Screen button in the prototype view would not do anything when clicked. We fixed this so the prototype now enters full screen view
  • If your computer had to restart while Figma was open, the app would not always open all of the tabs that were originally open. Now - Figma will always reopen all open tabs
  • Toggling the “hide extension” setting on macOS when exporting would sometimes cause a failed export. We’ve fixed this so you can always export successfully
  • On some Windows machines, a tiny gap would be visible under the tap strip if the text size was set to 125%. We’ve fixed this so no gap appears
  • Sometimes, opening the Desktop App would result in tabs opening in your browser, too. We fixed this so files are only opened in the Desktop App now
  • macOS: Added the Align and Distribute shortcuts to the Desktop App menu
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Copy Properties and Paste Properties from working

What's New This Week

Fixed

  • While loading your notifications, we would incorrectly show a "no notifications" message. We fixed this by showing a loading spinner while we load your notifications.
  • We now provide a resource usage indicator if you want to monitor the size of your file. Search for "Resource Use" in the menu
  • Deleted projects would reappear when you refreshed your tab. We actually delete your projects now
  • Clicking "Edit Original" while viewing a prototype would always take you to the first page of the Figma file. We now take you to the right page and also select the frame you were viewing.
  • Turning a frame into component would always collapse the frame in the layers panel. We now preserve the expanded state when changing a frame into a component.
  • Moving objects on the canvas would sometimes scroll the layers panel unnecessarily. We now prevent the layers panel from scrolling when moving objects on the canvas.
  • Fixed a bug where Zeplin export could sometimes fail

What's New This Week

Fixed

  • Creating a text object with justified alignment would cause the text object to move while you type. We fixed this so the text object no longer moves.
  • Changing the device orientation between portrait and landscape would ignore your constraint settings. Now, we respect constraints when changing orientation
  • Adding a stroke to a text object would default to a 0 width stroke, which was not useful. We now default to a 1px width when adding a stroke to text objects
  • Flattening an arrow would remove the arrow heads. We fixed this so the arrow heads are preserved.
  • The Last Modified sort option in the recent tab really sorts by Last Viewed. This was very confusing so we changed the copy.
  • The notification badge in the File Space would remain unread even if you acted on the notifications directly in a file. Now, the notification is dismissed if you have already read your unread comments or accepted file invites.
  • Renamed "Copy Style: and "Paste Style" to Copy Properties and Paste Properties to be more accurate (and because of our upcoming Styles feature).
