How Do I Copy a Component in Figma?

One of the most powerful features of Figma is its ability to copy components easily and quickly. This allows users to duplicate elements, thus saving time and eliminating the need to recreate them.

It also allows users to create variations of a component, making it easier to customize designs. Here’s how you can copy a component in Figma.

Step 1: Select the component you want to copy. You can do this by clicking on it or using the “Lasso Tool” to draw a selection box around it.

Step 2: Once you have selected the component, go to “Edit” in the top menu bar and select “Copy”. You can also use the keyboard shortcut “Command + C” (on Mac) or “Ctrl + C” (on Windows).

Step 3: Now that your component is copied, you have two options for where you can paste it. You can either paste it into another document or within the same document.

If you are pasting within the same document, simply click on an empty space and hit “Paste”. If you are pasting into another document, select the destination document from the file browser and then hit “Paste”.

Step 4: Once your component is pasted, you will see two copies of it in your document. To edit one of them, simply double-click on it and start making changes as desired.


Copying components in Figma is a fast and easy way to speed up your workflow and make customizing designs quick and simple. With just a few clicks, you can copy components from one document to another or even within the same document.
