How Do I Get Out of Edit Mode in Figma?

When using Figma, one of the most common tasks is to make changes to an existing project. To do this, you need to enter edit mode.

However, once you are finished making changes, you may be wondering how to get out of edit mode in Figma. Luckily, it is a relatively simple process.

The first step in getting out of edit mode in Figma is to click on the “Edit” button at the top left corner of the screen. This will open up a menu with several options including “Save” and “Cancel”. If you have made any changes that you would like to keep, click on “Save” and your document will be updated with the new changes.

If you decide that you do not want to keep the changes that were made or if you simply want to discard them, click on “Cancel”. This will revert everything back to how it was before entering edit mode. You can then choose whether or not to save your document.

Once you have either saved or discarded your changes, Figma will automatically exit edit mode and take you back to the main screen. You can also manually exit edit mode by clicking on the “Exit Edit Mode” button at the top right corner of the window.


Getting out of edit mode in Figma is a simple process that only requires a few clicks. To get out of edit mode in Figma, simply click on either “Save” or “Cancel” depending on whether or not you want to keep your changes and then click on either “Exit Edit Mode” or simply close the window.
