How Do I Install a Figma File in Framer?

Figma is a powerful design tool that enables users to create digital designs quickly, collaborate in real-time, and publish their work. Framer is a prototyping tool that allows designers to bring their ideas to life with interactive animations and transitions. One of the great features of both tools is the ability to import Figma files directly into Framer for further prototyping.

In this article, we will discuss how to install a Figma file into Framer.

Step 1:

The first step is to open your Figma project in the web browser and select the specific frame or frames you would like to export from the project. Once you have selected one or more frames, click on “Export” in the top right corner of the page.

Step 2:

Once you have clicked on Export, you will be presented with several options for exporting your project. Select “Framer” as your export option and then click “Export” again.

Step 3:

After clicking Export, your Figma file will be converted into a .framer file which can now be imported into Framer. Open Framer and select “Import” from the File menu. You can now select your .framer file from its location on your computer and click “Open”.

Step 4:

Your imported Figma project will now appear in Framer as a new layer within an existing canvas. You can now begin editing it as desired within the canvas, adding additional layers and animations as needed.


Installing a Figma file into Framer is quite simple once you know how! By following the steps outlined above, you can easily import any Figma project or frame into Framer for further prototyping and editing.
