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.
