What's New This Week

Improved

  • We've added the prototype transition and easing settings to our API


Fixed
  • Viewing a comment from your email would always open the Figma file zoomed out too far. We fixed this so files opened from comment emails always zoom in to the frame so you can quickly reply.
  • Using really long descriptions when annotating your version history would sometimes result in a failure. We fixed this so long descriptions will be saved correctly.
  • Canceling a file import would prevent you from importing a file again without refreshing your page. We fixed this so you can always import files, even after canceling a previous import.
  • Editor
    • Previously, masked elements would be selectable outside of the visible portion, preventing you from selecting objects below it. We fixed this so you can only select the visible portions of a masked object.
    • Viewing a master style when you only have view-only access to the publishing file would result in a blank properties panel. We now show the style properties in the original file.
    • View Only mode always displayed Layout Grids, making it difficult to quickly view designs. We now hide layout grids in view only mode so your teammates can focus on your beautiful designs.
    • We incorrectly rounded up the dimensions of exports when using a 2x multiplier. Now, we export your designs more accurately. 
    • The missing fonts indicator would remain visible in the toolbar after you successfully replaced the missing fonts in your file. Now, it will disappear automatically after replacing your missing fonts.
    • The CSS code we generated for gradients was incorrect. We fixed this so our CSS correctly matches your designs.
    • The “Show in exports” setting for the Frame background would not respond correctly to clicks. Now, the entire label and the checkbox responds to clicks correctly.
  • Type
    • Standard text editing shortcuts were not working in text-edit mode. We fixed this so you can rely on your existing selection shortcuts when you’re working with text in Figma.
    • International keyboards that used the AltGr key to enter special characters were unable to enter those keys in text objects. We fixed this so you should be able to use AltGr to enter text in Figma.
    • The Show Google Fonts checkbox was inverted in the Advanced Type panel. Now, when you enable or disable the Show Google Fonts setting, we will do the right thing and definitely not the opposite thing.
  • Team Library
    • Copying and pasting a detached team library instance into a new file could result in losing any overrides in the instance. We now do a better job preserving your overrides when copying between files.
    • Symbols from imported Sketch files would not appear publishable to your Team Library. We fixed this so you can quickly import a Sketch file and publish all of the symbols to your team library.
  • Prototyping
    • Fill style overrides for text objects would not be shown correctly in your prototype. We fixed this so text objects with fill style overrides always appear.
    • Device backgrounds will now be black instead of the prototype background
    • Prototype would sometimes show small spaces between the device frame and the prototype. We fixed this so you shouldn’t see any spaces between the device and your content.
    • Prototype embeds incorrectly displayed a fullscreen button that didn’t work. Embeds will no longer display the broken button.
    • Panning inside a device frame outside of the bounds of the frame would scroll the entire device. Now, we only scroll the entire device when panning outside of the device
    • Scrolling and transitioning through your prototype really quickly could break the ability to scroll. We fixed this so scrolling always works when viewing your prototype.
    • Comments added to a scrolling prototype would not always scroll correctly. We fixed this so comments scroll correctly.
    • In small browser windows, device frames would appear blurry. We fixed this so the device frames are always super sharp.
    • We now support horizontal scrolling on mobile devices
    • Fixed a bug where an object could be incorrectly set as the origin for a prototype

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!)

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

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
