Figma is a powerful design tool used by many professionals to create beautiful, user-friendly designs. Figma allows you to quickly and easily create shapes of any size or complexity.
It’s a great way to create unique visuals for any project. But how do you cut shapes in Figma?
Cutting shapes in Figma is easy and straightforward. To begin, open the Figma file you want to work on.
Select the shape or group of shapes that you want to cut out from the canvas. Once you have made your selection, press Command+K (or Ctrl+K if you’re on PC) to open the Cut Shapes window.
The Cut Shapes window has three options: “Cut Shapes”, “Intersect Shapes” and “Split Shapes”. The “Cut Shapes” option allows you to cut out any overlapping parts of the selected shapes.
This can be useful when creating complex designs with multiple overlapping elements. The “Intersect Shapes” option allows you to keep only the overlapping parts of two or more selected shapes, while deleting everything else. Finally, the “Split Shapes” option allows you to break up one shape into multiple parts.
In addition to cutting shapes in Figma, you can also add styling effects such as shadows, gradients and outlines for added visual impact. To do this, select the shape or group of shapes that you want to style and click on the “Styles” tab at the bottom of the editor window.
The Styles tab has several options for styling your shape or group of shapes including color picker for selecting colors and gradient editor for adding gradients effects. You can also add shadows and outlines with ease using this tab.
