1) Tap Into the Power of Libraries
Using Libraries to store your components, text styles, and colors can save you time throughout your next project. You can access component libraries, stored within Figma, from anywhere in your project — just drag and drop. This feature allows you to quickly implement pieces of your design components into your design, ensuring a consistent theme throughout.
2) Use Frame Automations
Frame Automations allow you to rapidly generate and customize assets at scale. Select an existing frame, and let Figma take over by duplicating the frame and resizing it. This tool is especially helpful when it comes to generating multiple versions of the same asset.
3) Master Keyboard Shortcuts
Like all design applications, Figma also offers a list of keyboard shortcuts to speed up your workflow. Mastering the keyboard shortcuts can shave seconds off of every action and even minutes in total. This increased productivity can help churn out design iterations faster while also freeing up time in the long run.
4) Utilize the MagicNumber Plugin
With the MagicNumber Figma plugin, you can precisely match dimensions across layers with just one simple click. This tool allows designers to consistently prototype the same experience over and over without having to count the pixels manually.
5) Use Figma Mirror
Figma Mirror allows designers to deploy their design instantly to their device to show the design in action or even to take advantage of device media queries for a complete device experience. With Figma Mirror, you don’t need to waste any time exporting manually or waiting for the design to render — delivery to the device of your choice is instant!
