How Do I Open Axure Files in Figma?

Figma and Axure are two of the most widely used design tools among web developers. Both have their own strengths and weaknesses and can be used to create complex designs for websites, applications, and more.

But what if you need to open an Axure file in Figma? Is it possible?

The short answer is yes, it is possible to open Axure files in Figma. However, there are a few steps involved in the process.

First, you need to export your Axure file as an .rp file. This can be done by going to File > Export > Export as RP File in the Axure menu bar. Once the file is exported, you can then open it in Figma by going to File > Open > Select Your RP File.

Once your file is opened in Figma, you should be able to see all of the elements from your Axure prototype. However, there are some limitations when opening an .rp file in Figma as not all elements supported by Axure are supported by Figma. For example, widgets such as sliders or checkboxes will not be visible in Figma.

In addition, some of the styling options available in Axure may not be available in Figma or may need to be re-created manually for each element. For example, text styling such as font size or color will need to be added separately for each text element.


Overall, opening an .rp file from Axure into Figma is possible but there are some limitations that should be kept in mind when making this transition. It is important to remember that not all elements and styling options supported by Axure will also be supported by Figma so some manual work may need to be done after importing the file.
