Evan Wallace, a co-founder of Figma, made this niche plugin 4 years ago, and I just discovered it?! “This plugin lets you edit the fill rules of a vector object. Fill rules determine which parts of a vector outline are filled. The fill rules have different behavior when a vector outline overlaps. Why is this useful? Certain export formats (e.g. TrueType fonts, Android VectorDrawable) only support the non-zero fill rule. You can use this plugin to manually convert even-odd to non-zero to make the exporters for these formats work.”
How would you create a spiral in Figma without any external tools? Miggi’s answer is in the thread, but some of the solutions from others are really smart and creative too!
Quick challenge.... without plugins, external apps, or @jsngr's magical tools, how would you make this in @figma? Show me your solution in the thread... Ill show you how I did it tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/iTUg2Te0OK
Combining components and shapes to create more advanced shapes.
I just realized if you combine components and shapes in @figmadesign, you can create “smart” shapes, complete with mirroring! The final head is a single vector shape rounded corners. pic.twitter.com/VvTHapUpbd
