How Do You Copy and Paste Styles in Figma?

When using Figma, a powerful design and prototyping tool, copying and pasting styles is a great way to save time and keep your designs consistent. Styles are the building blocks of design, and you can do a lot with them in this platform.

When you copy and paste styles from one element to another, it’s like copying an entire set of rules that apply to the element. This means that all of your text, color, shadows, and other styling will be applied automatically.

To copy and paste styles in Figma, first select the element you want to copy the style from. Then click on the “Styles” tab in the right-hand panel.

Here you’ll see all of the available styles for that element. Select the style you want to copy by clicking on it. You can also select multiple styles if you need them.

Once selected, click on the “Copy” button at the top right of the panel. You can also right-click on any style to copy it as well. This will copy all of your selected styles into your clipboard.

To paste these styles onto another element or elements, simply select them and then click on the “Paste” button at the top right of the panel or use a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + V). The pasted style will be applied immediately.


Copying and pasting styles in Figma is a great way to quickly apply a set of design rules to multiple elements without having to manually adjust each one. To do this, simply select an element with existing styles and then click on “Copy.”

To paste these same styles onto another element or elements, use either “Paste” or a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + V). With this simple process, styling your designs in Figma becomes much faster!
