How Do I Make Different States in Figma?

Figma is a powerful design tool used to create and collaborate on user interfaces. It is used by teams of all sizes around the world, from small startups to large companies.

With Figma, you can create beautiful designs quickly and easily, without any coding knowledge. One of the great features of Figma is its ability to create different states for an object. This allows you to quickly and easily switch between versions of an object or design element, such as a button or form field.

Creating states in Figma is easy and intuitive. To start, open the layer you want to add states to, then click the “States” icon at the top right of the layer panel.

This will open a new panel that lists all the existing states for that layer. You can add a new state by clicking on “+ Add State” at the bottom right corner of this panel.

Once you’ve added a state, you can edit it as you would any other object in Figma. You can change its size, color, position, etc., just like with any other layer. When you’re happy with your changes, click “Save State” at the top right corner to save your changes.

If you need to switch between different states quickly without having to manually edit them each time, Figma also has a handy feature called “State Switching” which allows you to switch between different states in one click. To use this feature, simply select the layer you want to switch between states for and press “Ctrl + Alt + S” (or Cmd + Alt + S on Mac) on your keyboard.


Figma’s ability to create different states for an object makes it an incredibly powerful design tool. Creating and switching between different states is easy and intuitive; just open up the layer panel and click on “States” or use “State Switching” with a simple keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + Alt + S). With Figma’s state-building capabilities, designing user interfaces has never been easier!
