How Do You Add a Component in Figma?

Adding components in Figma is one of the most powerful tools when it comes to building amazing user interfaces. Components are reusable pieces of UI that can be used to create a consistent look and feel throughout an entire project. With components, designers can easily create a library of UI elements that can be quickly added to any design.

Using Components – Components are incredibly useful for quickly creating complex designs. We can make a component from a single element or group of elements, and then use it in other designs.

When we add components to our designs, Figma will automatically generate instances of the component, so when we modify the master component all instances will update as well. This saves us time and effort when making changes across our designs.

Adding New Components – To add a new component in Figma, select the element or group of elements you want to turn into a component and right-click on them. Then select “Create Component” from the menu that appears. You will then be prompted to give your component a name and provide some additional information about it.

Organizing Components– Once you have created your components, they will appear in the “Components” panel on the left side of your Figma canvas. Here you can organize and manage all your components in one place. You can create folders for different categories of components, rename them, delete them or even duplicate them for use in other projects.

Styling Your Components – You can also style your components in Figma by using our wide range of styling options like gradients, shadows, alignment tools etc. Once you have styled your components you can easily apply them across all instances with just one click.


Adding components in Figma is an essential part of creating amazing user interfaces with ease. By leveraging the power of reusable UI elements designers can quickly create complex designs without having to start from scratch each time they need something new. With its intuitive interface and rich set of features, adding components has never been easier!
