Not being able to copy straight from Adobe into Figma. I cannot use Figma in Safari, I have to use Firefox.
The "Prototype presentation area" is not as smooth as the remaining app.
When there's no connection working it can struggle, I have to remember to save offline files
Not as mature when it comes to importing and exporting different file types.
Figma can be glitchy at times. Fonts sometimes jump around making detail design frustrating.
Because it's primarily a web app, the desktop app is little more than a wrapper. I wish more functionality were searchable from the standard Help search (Command+Shift+/).
Mirror app feels slow and clunky. Animated transitions in heavy docs become unusable
Components are a little bit challenging to master and effectively use
I wish there were text wrapping options. I know that is usually the domain of print design tools, but it could be very helpful for UI design as well.
Looking for a better way to plan remote meetings across time zones, and keep up with events. What software is doing that best today?
We have 15k newsletter subscribers, and have around ~2k of them in a Slack group. We're starting to encounter issues in terms of community management - specifically, it's hard to pin content like c...
Google lets you subscribe to a calendar using a URL - although when using an Outlook 365 Calendar link, events are copied over once, and then the syncing stops. This seems to be a relatively new is...
What features were the hardest to discover and start using?
Scaffolding, for instance. When you create a component it is just left there, it is not move into a separate page, so you may think that you’re handling an instance but actually it’s the master component.
Another one: when you un group an auto layer, you may think that you have unpacked the element, but actually the auto layer is just transformed into a layoutless frame, which layer will cause many headaches.
A last one: it’s really confusing to understand which context triggers which helper (like auto packing button appearing only if you’re not in an auto layout).
There’s no major issue, it’s just that you have to google a lot and go through tones of trials and errors before getting it.
I guess a good exhaustive FAQ à la Stackoverflow would be great for those who start using Figma.
Ahh that makes sense! It is surprising how much software you have to learn by trial/error/google!
