How Do I Enable Libraries in Figma?

Figma is a powerful design and prototyping tool used by many designers. It is an intuitive and powerful software that provides designers with an array of features and capabilities.

One such feature is the ability to enable libraries in Figma. Libraries allow designers to access pre-made elements, components, and templates for their projects, which can save them time and effort when creating designs.

Enabling libraries in Figma is easy. First, open the Figma file you would like to work on, then click the ‘Libraries’ button in the top right corner of the screen.

This will open a window that allows you to view available libraries from both within Figma as well as from third-party sources. From here you can select which library or libraries you would like to add to your project.

Once selected, all elements and components from the chosen library will be available in your project. You can access them via the ‘Libraries’ tab located in the left-hand side panel of Figma or by clicking ‘Insert’ at the top of your canvas area. When inserting items into your project, they will be labeled with the name of their associated library.

In addition to accessing pre-made elements and components through libraries, you can also create your own custom libraries in Figma. To do this, simply create a new folder within your project window and add any elements or components you want saved there for later use. Once saved in this folder, they will be accessible just like any other library item.


Enabling Libraries in Figma is a great way to access pre-made elements and components for faster design projects. It’s easy to do – simply click on the ‘Libraries’ button at the top right corner of your screen and choose which library or libraries you would like to add. In addition, users can also create their own custom libraries within their projects for easy access later on.
