Toni Gemayel built a plugin providing basic support for variable fonts. While not a replacement for missing native support, it lets you render variable fonts as graphics and then update them in the future.
Use bullets and numbers to organize information, emphasize important details, or outline steps. Check out the video by Anthony DiSpezio with a quick demo. Hope you caught the fun lists launched as an April Fools joke!
“In this Figma Tip, learn to set up a 4px baseline grid using layout grids, and how to set offset values to your text blocks using auto layout to account for fonts' different baselines and keep a consistent vertical rhythm in your designs.”
I don't know who needs to hear this, but some fonts come with stylistic alternatives for glyphs, and its super easy to swap them out in @figmadesign. Especially if a client has strong opinions on that letter "a" (true story).
List all font families and styles used in a document, and see where exactly they are used. I found this plugin really useful while working on the recent project — first, when switching to a different typeface, and later while reducing the number of webfonts in a project.
