Circles are one of the most common shapes used in designs, and they can be useful for creating buttons in Figma. But cutting a circle shape into a button can be tricky if you don’t know how to do it. Luckily, there are several methods that you can use to achieve the desired result.
Using the Pen Tool
The Pen tool is the most commonly used method for cutting circles into buttons in Figma. It allows you to draw a path that follows the outline of your circle, creating a perfect cut.
To get started, select the Pen tool from the toolbar and then draw a path along the contour of your circle. When you’re done, select the Edit Points tool to adjust any points that need tweaking. Once everything looks good, select Object > Path > Cut in order to cut through your shape.
Using Rectangle Shapes
If you don’t want to use the Pen tool, you can also use rectangle shapes to cut circles into buttons in Figma. To do this, simply create two rectangles that overlap your circle shape and then group them together with Object > Group. Finally, select Object > Path > Cut in order to cut through your shape.
Cutting a circle shape into a button in Figma is easy when you know how to do it. The Pen tool is generally considered the best way to achieve this result, but using rectangle shapes can also work if needed. With either method, all it takes is a few simple steps and you’ll have perfect cuts every time!
