How Do I Copy a Style From One Figma File to Another?

Copying a style from one Figma file to another is an incredibly useful feature. It allows you to quickly and easily apply the same look and feel to different elements across multiple files.

To copy a style from one Figma file to another, first open the original file. Select the element with the desired style properties, then click on the “Styles” tab in the top right corner of the window. This will bring up a list of all of the styles that have been applied to that element. Click on a style in the list and it will show you all of its properties, including color, font size, line spacing, etc.

Once you’ve identified the style you want to copy, select it and then click “Copy Style” at the bottom of the window.

This will copy all of its properties into your clipboard so that they can be pasted into another Figma file.

Now open up your other Figma file and select an element that you want this style applied to. Click on “Style” again and this time choose “Paste Style” from the bottom of the window. This will paste all of the previously copied properties onto your new element, giving it exactly same look as you had in your original file!


Copying a style from one Figma file to another is an easy process that allows for quick design changes across multiple projects. All you need to do is select an element with your desired look in one file, copy its properties using “Copy Style”, then paste those properties onto an element in another file using “Paste Style”. With just a few clicks of your mouse, you can create unified designs with consistent looks throughout!
