If you’re a designer, you’ll understand how important it is to have access to vector graphics and scaleable images. SVG code is one way of achieving this, and it offers numerous advantages over other image formats. If you’re looking to use SVG code in Figma, there are a few simple steps you can take to get started.
The first step is to find the source files for the artwork you want to use. This can be found online or from within Figma itself.
Once you have the source files, open them in Figma and locate the vector elements that make up your design. These should be grouped together in order for them to be exported as an SVG file.
Once you have located all of your vector elements, select them all with your mouse and look for the ‘export’ option in the top menu bar. This will open a new window where you can choose which file type you’d like to export as.
Select SVG from the drop-down menu and click ‘Export’. You will now have an SVG file that can be used in any application.
If you would like to add some unique styling options such as shadows or gradients, this can also be done directly within Figma. Simply select the vector elements again, then click on ‘Effects’ in the top menu bar. From here, you can choose from a range of options such as shadows and gradients.
Finally, if you want to edit your code directly without having to go through the export process again each time, it’s possible to do so within Figma too. To do this, simply select ‘Code’ from the top bar menu instead of ‘Effects’. This will open up a text editor window where you can make changes directly.
Conclusion: Getting SVG code in Figma is easy with just a few simple steps. You need to find your source files within Figma or online, select them all with your mouse and click on ‘export’, then choose SVG from the drop-down menu before exporting it out as an SVG file.
If needed, additional styling such as shadows or gradients can also be added directly within Figma using their effects feature. Finally, if direct code editing is required without having to go through export each time, then selecting ‘Code’ from the top bar gives access to a text editor window where changes can be made directly.
