“You can export content to share designs with others, move content between tools, or save copies of your work outside of Figma. In this video, we’ll walk through how to export content and go over ways to troubleshoot common export issues.”
Honestly, I always assumed that SVG bugs are just a part of the game and will always be here — not a surprising conclusion when 49% of imported SVGs relied on buggy features. In retrospect, it was a silly assumption considering SVG is one of only a few open vector formats. In this fantastic thread, Figma engineer Lauren Budorick shows how much work went into detecting, analyzing, and fixing these bugs. I didn’t realize that luminance mask support was a part of this work as well, and Miggi is already exploring creative applications for composited motion visuals in prototypes.
Last spring my team at @figma finally took on an area that we've known has been a huge pain point for a long time: SVG imports. We would soon find out just how bad it was (bad!) and that we’d need to build a whole new feature in the process.
Interesting discussion about exporting assets with a Display P3 color space from Figma. I wasn’t familiar with Export PNG with Color Profile plugin (see below) or an option of assigning an ICC profile to the exported PDF.
I’d try this: 1. Setup your macOS to use P3 (display) 2. Setup Figma (desktop app, main menu) to use “unmanaged” color (= display space) 3. Assign P3 ICC profile to output PDF
Rogie King built a plugin to import .procreate files into Figma, complete with named layers, groups, blend modes, and clipping masks. Make sure to check out a Twitter thread on his challenges during development.
