How Do I Copy a Font Awesome to Figma?

Using Font Awesome in Figma is a great way to quickly add icons to your designs. Whether you’re creating buttons, logos, or illustrations, Font Awesome’s library of icons can help you create the look and feel you want. But how do you copy and style a Font Awesome icon in Figma?

The process is actually quite simple.

First, find the icon you want to use in the Font Awesome library. Once you have it selected, click on the “Copy” button in the top-right corner. This will copy the HTML code for that icon directly into your clipboard.

Next, go to Figma and open up the file where you’d like to add the icon. Once there, select the “Text” tool from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Paste in your copied HTML code into any text box on your canvas.

Now that your HTML code is inside of Figma, you’ll need to style it to fit with your design. To do this, select the text box containing your HTML code and open up its properties panel on the right side of the screen. Here, you can adjust things like font size, color, alignment, and more.

Finally, if you want to make sure that your Font Awesome icon looks exactly as it does in its original library version (including color), copy its class name from within its HTML code (it should start with “fa-“) and paste it into one of Figma’s Character Styles under “Class Name”. This will apply all of Font Awesome’s styling rules directly to your icon within Figma.

In conclusion, copying a Font Awesome icon into Figma is easy and straightforward – all you need to do is copy its HTML code from within its library page and paste it into a text box within Figma. From there, you can easily adjust styling elements like font size and color using Figma’s Properties Panel on the right side of your screen or apply all of Font Awesome’s styles using their class name under Character Styles. With these steps in mind, anyone can quickly incorporate beautiful icons into their designs using Figma!
