How Do You Edit a Component in Figma?

Designing a user interface (UI) is an important part of any digital product development process. Figma is a popular design tool that has made the design process quicker and easier. It provides designers with a collaborative environment, where they can create and share their ideas with colleagues, clients, and other stakeholders.

Figma enables designers to create high-quality designs in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional tools. One of the most useful aspects of Figma is its ability to edit components quickly and easily.

In Figma, components are elements that can be reused throughout a project, such as buttons, icons, or text boxes. Components are great for maintaining consistency across multiple projects or platforms, as each component can be edited and changed without affecting the entire design.

Editing components in Figma involves selecting the component from the Library panel and then making changes to the original component. To edit a component in Figma, first select it from the Library panel.

Then use the Inspector panel on the right-hand side to make changes to its properties such as color, size, font type, etc. You can also adjust padding and margins to ensure that all elements are properly spaced on screen.

In addition to editing components in Figma’s Inspector panel, you can also add interactions to them by using Auto-Animate or Frames animation tools. With Auto-Animate you can set up an animation sequence for your component without having to write any code or manually animate it frame by frame. Alternatively, with Frames you can assign different states for your component (e.g., hover state) that will change when triggered by certain events (e., mouse hover).

To further customize components in Figma you can use Styles and Shared Styles panels on the left-hand side of the screen. Styles allow you to create rules that apply consistent styling across multiple elements while Shared Styles enable teams to establish design guidelines based on pre-defined rules.


Editing components in Figma is an easy process that allows designers to save time while creating high-quality UI designs quickly and efficiently. By using tools like Auto-Animate and Frames along with Styles and Shared Styles panels designers have all the resources needed for creating custom components in no time.
