How Do I Edit Text in Figma Components?

Last updated on September 29, 2022 @ 10:14 am

If you’re working with text in Figma, there are a few different ways to edit it. You can use the default text editor, or you can use the inline text editor.

To use the default text editor:

1. Select the text object you want to edit. 2. Click the Edit button in the top toolbar.

3. The default text editor will open up in a new window. 4. Make your changes and then click the Save button.

To use the inline text editor:

1. Hover over the text until a blue box appears around it. Click inside the blue box to start editing the text inline. Make your changes and then press Enter or Return to save them.

You can also style your text using HTML tags. To do this, select the text object and then click the HTML button in the top toolbar. This will open up a new window where you can add HTML tags to style your text.

PRO TIP: If you are not familiar with Figma components, we recommend that you do not attempt to edit text within them. Doing so could result in unexpected and undesirable changes to your design.

So there you have it! Two different ways to edit text in Figma, and a bonus tip on how to style it using HTML tags.
