Figma is a great tool for creating and managing user interfaces. In this article, we’ll show you how to import a design from Sketch into Figma.

First, open your Sketch file in a browser. Next, open the Figma file in a separate, local window.

You can do this by clicking on the “File” button in the upper-left corner of the Sketch window, and then selecting “Open in Figma.”.

PRO TIP: When importing a design into Figma, be aware that any existing layers in the file will be replaced by the imported design. If you wish to keep your existing layers, be sure to duplicate the file before importing the design.

Now, you’ll see the design in Figma. You can drag and drop elements from the Sketch file into the Figma file.

You can also use the Copy and Paste buttons in the toolbar to move elements between the files.

When you’re finished, you can save your design in Figma as a .Fgm file. You can also export your design as a .

png or .jpg file.
