How Do You Use Reusable Components in Figma?

Reusable components are one of the most useful features when using Figma. Composed of a complete set of styles, such as colors, text styles, and other properties, reusable components enable designers to quickly prototype and iterate on their designs.

When creating a new design in Figma, adding reusable components is as simple as dragging and dropping them onto the canvas. After adding a component to the canvas, it can be further customized by changing its properties or adding additional elements.

This allows for quick iteration and faster prototyping. Additionally, components can be easily moved around the canvas allowing for greater flexibility in design creation.

Creating reusable components in Figma is very simple. First, create a frame – or group – that contains all of the elements that will make up your component.

This could include shapes, text boxes, icons, etc. Next, open the ‘Components’ tab on the right-hand side of the screen and click ‘Create Component’ which will bring up an empty frame with a plus sign icon inside it – this is where you will name your component and add any additional information about it before saving it.

Once saved, your newly created component will appear in the ‘Components’ tab from where you can drag and drop it into any frame on your canvas or even into another component – allowing for quick reuse across different frames or projects. To further customize your components you can add additional properties such as colors, text styles or even animations directly from within this tab without needing to go back into your frames – saving time and effort when iterating on designs quickly.

Conclusion: Reusable components are an incredibly powerful tool that allow designers to quickly create prototypes in Figma by reusing elements across different frames and projects with minimal effort. They can be easily created by using frames to contain all elements that make up the component before adding properties and saving them within the ‘Components’ tab for future use.
