In Figma, you can merge shapes to create a single vector shape out of multiple separate objects. Merging shapes is quite simple, however if you’re not familiar with the process, it can be a bit confusing. Figma provides an easy way to combine various shapes into one single object.
To merge shapes in Figma, begin by selecting the shapes you’d like to merge. Hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Cmd (Mac) and click on each object individually to select them.
Once the objects are selected, right-click on one of them and select the “Merge” option from the dropdown menu. This will combine all of the respective objects into a single shape.
Alternatively, you can also use the “Union” tool to merge multiple shapes together. To use this tool, first select all of your desired objects and then click on the Union icon in the top toolbar. This will automatically combine all of your objects and create a single vector shape.
It’s also possible to apply fills and strokes when merging shapes. To do this, simply select all of the desired objects and then click on the “Fill & Stroke” icon in the top toolbar. From here you can apply various fill options as well as define stroke properties for your combined object.
Merging shapes in Figma is a great way to quickly combine multiple separate objects into one unified vector shape. All that is required is that users select their desired objects, right-click on one of them and then select either ‘Merge’ or ‘Union’ from the dropdown menu. Additionally, users are able to apply fills and strokes when merging shapes in order to customize their newly created vector shape.
