How Do I Enable Plugins in Figma?

Figma is an incredibly powerful design tool that enables users to create pixel-perfect designs and collaborate with other designers in real-time. One of the key features of Figma is the ability to customize your workflow with plugins.

Plugins are small pieces of code, created by third-party developers, that allow Figma users to add extra features and functionalities to their app. With plugins, users can do things like automate design tasks, create custom UI elements, join a public library of resources, or manage their project’s colors.

Enabling plugins in Figma is a relatively straightforward process. All you need to do is log into your Figma account and head over to the ‘Plugins’ tab in the top navigation bar. This will take you to the Plugin Library where you can browse through available plugins from both official and third-party developers.

Once you have found a plugin that you would like to install, simply click the ‘Install’ button next to it. You will then be taken to the plugin’s page where you will be able to read more about its functionalities and features. When you are ready, simply click on ‘Enable Plugin’ at the bottom of the page and your plugin will be installed into your Figma account.

If you ever decide that you no longer want to use a certain plugin or if you would like to update it with a new version, all you have to do is go back into the Plugin Library and click on ‘Disable Plugin’ or ‘Update Version’ next to it.


Enabling plugins in Figma is easy and straightforward – all it takes is a few clicks! Simply log into your account, head over to the Plugins tab in the top navigation bar, browse through available plugins from both official and third-party developers, click install on one that interests you, and hit enable at the bottom of its page. If ever needed, disabling or updating a plugin can also be done quickly from within the same menu.
