I could really use a few things:
– Better Apple Pencil support in figjam (real palm rejection; allowing me to write inside of a blob (shape) with my Apple Pencil and convert it to text.)
– Let me move the toolbox out of the way on the screen.
For the preceding improvements I would be willing to pay 2 stars.
I love the direction of the app but there’s some things that would make it a more fluid experience.
Firstly it would be amazing if there was a better experience when previewing designs. Trying to see all screens when a flow is set is a nightmare, not all my screens are tied to a flow 24/7 but I still want to be able to individually launch a preview, however I get auto launched to the first flow which isn’t great when it’s not what I want loading.
Secondly, mirroring can be a hit or miss when on wifi. Sometimes I need to close the desktop or mobile app and hope it will prompt my mirror CTA. Frustrating when I need to quickly mirror it.
Lastly, it’d be nice to have more tools available like moving art boards, leaving comments, tap on an image and replace with images from camera roll, and having files organized in a card grid instead of rows since it can be hard when you have lots of files.
Please improve vector editing & ability to copy paste into Illustrator
Figma is good at many things, but vector editing is definitely not their strong suit. Neither is photo editing. It is optimized for quick & relatively low skill mocking, but not for creating actual elements of the design, like high quality iconography. So I still very much need Photoshop and Illustrator. Animation abilities are also very limited. So there’s no way to make a realistic prototype with just Figma. Please provide at least an ability to copy paste vector INTO Illustrator, not just from.
Cannot log in after updating the app
I could not log in into my account after I installed the latest update. I tried changing my password, reinstalled the app. everything works on my desktop.
The app doesn’t provide a system respond on what’s wrong, just shows the log in page. Doesn’t say if password or email are wrong. (Which they are not). When I press on Log in button, the focus state goes on passes field (which already has my password). Please help.
Developer Response ,
Hi, so sorry you’re experiencing problems with logging in, we’re actively looking into this issue. It would be extremely helpful if you could email us at mobile-app-auth-help[at]figma.com with more information, thanks!
Figma is wonderful, but their app isn’t
I love using Figma, but the persistent bugs that exist on the app are frustrating. The app is super useful; I love it. It’s simply a frustrating experience a large portion of the time. It’s unfortunate to see a lack of development and care put towards it. I switched over from Adobe XD, and they had a better app experience— as the reviews show. Hoping for improvement here.
Great update but it still has the same bug
It is good to see new functionalities in the Figma app. However, the double tap bug still persist in the prototype view. Every tap is registered as a double tap. When the tap heat map are located at the same place in multiple pages, it skips to the second page. This is a major bug that needs to be fixed ASAP. This bug has been on Figma since 2018.
