How Do You Duplicate a Grid in Figma?

To duplicate a grid in Figma, there are several ways to go about it. The best approach is to open the desired frame and select the grid you want to duplicate.

Then, you can use the keyboard shortcut “Cmd/Ctrl + D” or the “Duplicate” command in the Frame menu to create an exact copy of the original grid. Alternatively, you can use the “Duplicate” option from the context menu by right-clicking on the grid.

Once you have a duplicate of your chosen grid, you can start customizing it to suit your needs. You can change its size and shape by using tools such as “Move & Resize”, “Transform” and “Align & Distribute”. You can also adjust its color and opacity with colors from Figma’s library or by manually selecting a color from any image or color palette.

To further customize your duplicated grids, you can add text and images to them by using Figma’s text tool or drag-and-drop feature. You can also apply effects like shadows and glows, as well as masks and clipping paths for more complex designs. Additionally, you can add new components such as buttons and shapes for further customization.

Lastly, if you need to create multiple copies of your duplicated grids quickly, there’s a handy tool in Figma called “Replicate”. With Replicate, you can quickly generate multiple copies of a particular frame or element while maintaining consistency across all elements in that frame. This is especially useful when creating UI kits or design systems with multiple components that need consistent styling across different elements.


Duplicating grids in Figma is fast and easy with its various tools such as Keyboard Shortcuts, Duplicate Command in Frame Menu, Context Menu option and Replicate Tool. With these tools at hand, one can easily create exact copies of their chosen grids while also being able to customize them according to their own needs with features like Move & Resize Tool, Text Tool etc.
