How Do I Link a Figma File?

Figma is an online vector graphics editor and prototyping tool. It allows users to create and collaborate on vector-based designs, wireframes, and prototypes.

One of the most powerful features of Figma is its ability to link files together. This allows users to quickly create links between different Figma files, such as a design file and a prototype file, or even a whole set of linked files.

Step 1: Open Your Figma File
The first step in linking a Figma file is to open the file you wish to link from. This can be done by clicking on the “Open” button in the top right corner of the Figma editor or by selecting “File > Open” from the menu bar.

Step 2: Add Linked File
Once your file has been opened, you can add a linked file by clicking on the “Link” icon in the toolbar at the top of the page. This will open up a window where you can browse for any other Figma files that have been uploaded to your account. Select your desired file and click “Link” to add it as a linked file.

Step 3: Connect Linked File
Once you have added your linked file, you will need to connect it to your original Figma document. To do this, simply drag and drop the linked file from its current location into your original document. You will then be able to select which parts of each document should be connected together as well as how they should be connected (e.g., with an arrow or line).

Step 4: Save Your Linked File
Once you have connected your linked file, you will need to save it so that it can be accessed later on. To do this, click on “File > Save As” from the menu bar and give your new document a name before saving it. You can then access this linked document at any time by selecting “File > Open” from the menu bar or by clicking on its name in your list of documents in Figma’s home page.


Linking a Figma file is an easy process that takes just a few steps. All that is required is opening up your desired files and connecting them together using drag-and-drop tools within Figma’s interface. Once all connections have been made, simply save your new document so that it can be accessed whenever needed.
