How Do I Move a Component From One Figma File to Another?

Moving a component from one Figma file to another is an easy task. All you need to do is select the component you want to move, select the new file you want to move it to, and then drag and drop the component from one file into the other. It’s as simple as that!

Although this process may seem straightforward, there are a few things you should keep in mind when moving components between Figma files. First, when moving components between files, all of the properties associated with that component—such as its color and size—will be preserved. For example, if a component has been given a specific color or font size in one file, that same color or font size will still apply when it is moved to another file.

Second, any changes made to a component in one file will not automatically be reflected in the other. For instance, if you make changes to a component’s position or size in one file but do not move it over to the other file, those changes will not appear there. Therefore, it’s important to remember that any changes made must be manually replicated in both files if they are to take effect.

Finally, if you want to move an entire page from one Figma file into another, simply select the page and drag and drop it into the other file. All of the elements on that page—including components—will be moved over too. However, if you only wish to move certain components from a page without moving the entire page itself then this is not possible with Figma.

Conclusion: Moving components between different Figma files is a quick and easy process that requires no additional setup or configuration. Simply drag and drop your desired components into the new destination file and all associated properties will be preserved. Additionally, any changes made must be manually replicated in both files if they are to take effect; moving an entire page allows all elements on that page—including components—to be moved over too.
