Preserving the scrolling position in Figma is an essential part of the design workflow. When working on complex designs, it’s easy to lose track of where you were when switching between files, zooming in and out, or navigating layers. Fortunately, Figma has a feature that allows you to preserve your scrolling position so that you can quickly jump back to exactly where you left off.
The easiest way to preserve your scrolling position in Figma is by using the bookmark feature.
To bookmark a spot on the canvas, simply click the bookmark icon in the top-right corner of the screen. This will add a small yellow star next to your current viewport with the current zoom level and panning location saved. To jump back to this spot, simply click on it again and you’ll be taken directly there.
Another way to preserve your scrolling position is by using pinned views. Pinned views are like bookmarks but more permanent.
When you create a pinned view, it stays linked to the document even if you close it or switch files. To create a pinned view, simply click on the pin icon in the top-right corner of the screen and select “Create Pinned View” from the dropdown menu.
Finally, Figma also has a feature called “Zoom & Pan Lock” which allows you to lock both your zoom level and panning location for any given viewport. This means that no matter how much you scroll or zoom around in this viewport, it will always stay locked at its current settings until you manually unlock it again.
Preserving scrolling position in Figma can be done easily using bookmarks, pinned views, and Zoom & Pan Lock features. These features allow designers to quickly jump back to their previous locations without having to manually search for them every time they switch files or zoom levels. With these features at hand, designers can save time and focus more on creating beautiful designs.
