➰ A new and improved copy and paste

We’ve made some changes to copy and paste in Figma to make it more consistent and predictable. To see how it all works, check out our playground file.

New functions to help speed up your workflow:
  • Paste to replace: Press Shift+⌘V or Shift+Ctrl+V to replace selected objects with another object that you’ve copied to your clipboard.
  • Multi-paste: Paste an object from your clipboard into multiple frames or groups simultaneously.
  • Paste here: Paste a clipboard object at the cursor location.

And some more improvements and fixes:
  • New paste positioning logic to make the action less disruptive and more predictable. 
  • We’ve added some visual cues when copying as PNG - a success/error bell and “copying” dialog - to communicate the status of your action.
  • We’ve updated the right-click menu to include copy and paste actions.
  • We’ve fixed some bugs with copy and paste functionality between tabs.
  • We’ve made some improvements to text selection to make copying and pasting easier and more performant.
  • You can now paste objects while text editing instead of having to manually exit the text box.
  • You can now copy multiple items as text via ⌘C or Ctrl+C
  • Speed up your paste operations. Press ⌘ or Ctrl when clicking on an object to automatically select the top-level frame.

🔎 Zoom controls in FigJam

  • We've added (+) and (-) zoom buttons in FigJam to make zooming in and out even easier.

🐞 Fixed incorrect analytics

The stats shown on the Design Systems Analytics board may be missing some data for September 1, but should be otherwise correct. We apologize for any inconvenience.
