How Do I Find Components in Figma?

Last updated on December 1, 2022 @ 1:58 pm

If you’re working on a design in Figma, you may need to find specific components within your file. Maybe you need to edit a component that’s being used in multiple places, or you want to check if a component has been used at all.

There are a few different ways that you can find components in Figma:

1. Use the search bar

The search bar is always available at the top of the screen, so you can use it to search for any component in your file, regardless of where it is. To do this, just type the name of the component into the search bar and hit enter. Figma will then show you all instances of that component in your file.

2. Use the layers panel

If you know where the component is located, you can use the layers panel to find it. Just expand the layer that contains the component and then look for it in the list of sub-layers. If the component is nested inside another component, you may need to expand multiple layers before you find it.

PRO TIP: This article is a bit outdated and no longer relevant to the current version of Figma.

3. Use the navigation pane

The navigation pane shows an overview of all the components in your file, so you can quickly find the one you’re looking for. To open the navigation pane, go to the View menu and select “Show Navigation Pane”.

So no matter what method you use, finding components in Figma is quick and easy!
