How Do I Turn Off Guides in Figma?

The Guides in Figma are a great feature to help you ensure that your design elements are placed in the correct positions. However, sometimes they can be a bit of an annoyance, and you want to get rid of them. Fortunately, it’s easy to turn off the Guides in Figma.

First, open up the file you’re working on and select the “View” menu at the top of the screen. You’ll see a checkbox labeled “Show Guides” – make sure that this is unchecked. This will turn off all of the guides in your current file.

If you want to turn off guides for all files, then select “Preferences” from the “File” menu. In the preferences window, make sure that the “Show Guides” box is unchecked. This will turn off all guides for all future files as well.

You can also hide individual guides. To do this, simply click on one of the guides and press Ctrl + H (or Cmd + H on a Mac). This will hide that particular guide, but it won’t affect any other guides.

Finally, if you need to temporarily disable all guides while working, then you can use Figma’s “Focus Mode”. To activate Focus Mode simply press Ctrl + Alt + F (or Cmd + Option + F on a Mac). All guides will be hidden until you deactivate Focus Mode by pressing this same shortcut again.

In conclusion, turning off Guides in Figma is easy and straightforward. You can either disable all Guides for all files or individual Guides for each file. You can also take advantage of Focus Mode to temporarily disable all Guides while working.
