  • Today we’re releasing Auto Layout so you can spend more time iterating and less time moving things around. With Auto Layout:
    • Buttons can resize with their text
    • Lists can rearrange themselves when items are moved around
    • Auto Layout elements can be nested to create interfaces which respond to their content
    • You can convert existing Components into Auto Layout from the option menu or with "Shift + A"




  • When adding Objects, hold down the Space bar to prevent Figma from reparenting an object
    • When moving an object out of a Frame's bounds, hold the Space bar to keep an object within the current parent
    • Frames can now have borders and border radius applied directly to them
    • Added a “Copy Link” menu item when right-clicking on files
    • SSO options now include support for any SAML 2.0 identity provider


    🐞 Bug Fixes


    • Fixed problems with preview in the Type Details panel
    • Made sure tooltips disappear when you type, so they don’t get in your way
    • Made Smart Animate work better with overlays
    • Fixed a problem with masking in SVG export

    Today we’re releasing Design System Analytics to give customers on the Organization Plan visibility into how their libraries and components are being used. With Design System Analytics, you can: 


    • View library usage analytics over time
    • See component usage and detaches
    • Compare usage between two libraries
    • Dig into how and where a component is used 



    Learn more about using Design System Analytics here.

    🐞 Bug Fixes



    • Prototyping
      • Layers with blend modes did not work correctly with Smart Animate. We fixed this so they should work as expected.
    • Editor
      • Rotated text objects would sometimes appear incorrectly when exported as an SVG. We fixed it so the exported SVG matches the text object.
