How Do You Cut a Portion in Figma?

Figma is a powerful vector graphics editor and prototyping tool used by web and UI designers. It is an excellent resource for creating high-fidelity prototypes, as well as wireframes and vector images. One of the most useful features of Figma is its ability to quickly and easily cut a portion of an image or design into smaller pieces. This can be done with a few simple steps.

The first step in cutting a portion in Figma is to select the part of the image or design you want to cut. This can be done by using the Selection Tool (V) or the Rectangle tool (R). Once you’ve selected your desired area, you can then click on the ‘Cut’ button in the toolbar at the top of the window. This will open up a dialog box where you can specify how much of the image or design you want to cut out. You can use either pixels or percent as your measurement unit.

Once you’ve specified your measurements, click ‘OK’ and Figma will automatically cut out the portion of your image or design that you specified. You can then drag this portion and place it wherever you like in your project.

If you need to make adjustments to your cut-out portion, such as changing its size or position, you can do so by selecting it with either the Selection Tool (V) or Rectangle Tool (R). You can then use either one of these tools to resize, rotate, skew, etc., until it looks just right.


Cutting a portion in Figma is easy and straightforward thanks to its intuitive user interface. With just a few clicks, you can quickly select an area in your project and specify how much of it should be cut out.

Once that’s done, all that’s left is simply dragging it into place with either the Selection Tool (V) or Rectangle Tool (R). So give it a try today –you won’t be disappointed!
