How Do I Change From View Only in Figma?

Figma is an incredibly powerful design tool that allows users to create, collaborate, and prototype experiences faster than ever. It is the go-to choice for many designers who are looking for a robust and intuitive platform to create with.

However, one of the most common questions that designers have is “How do I change from View Only in Figma?” This article will answer that question in detail.

The first step in changing from View Only in Figma is to open up your project. To do this, simply click on the project name from the left-hand menu and select “Open Project”.

You should then see a window where you can enter your project name and select either “View” or “Edit”. Selecting “Edit” will take you into the project and give you full access to all of the features available.

Once you are in a project with editing privileges, you can begin making changes. In Figma, changes are made by clicking on elements within the canvas or using the tools in the top toolbar.

Depending on which tool is selected, different menus will appear allowing you to make adjustments to things like colors, fonts, sizes and more.

In addition to making changes directly on the canvas itself, users can also adjust settings directly from within the Inspect panel at the right side of their screen. Here they can adjust things like layer properties, grids & guides settings and more.

Figma also allows users to collaborate on projects with others by inviting them as collaborators or viewers. Collaborators have full access to edit projects while viewers have limited access only able to view projects but not make any changes.


Changing from View Only mode in Figma is an easy process that only requires a few steps. First open up your project and select “Edit” from the window that appears.

Then use tools within the canvas or Inspect panel at right side of your screen to make desired changes. Finally if needed invite collaborators or viewers who will have either full or limited access respectively.
