How Do You Get a Component in Figma?

Last updated on September 28, 2022 @ 9:04 pm

There are a few ways to get components in Figma:

1. Create them from scratch: You can create a component by selecting the “Create new component” option from the right-click menu. This will open up the component editor, where you can add your own unique styling and content.

2. Duplicate an existing object: Another way to create a component is to duplicate an existing object on your canvas.

To do this, simply select the object you want to turn into a component, and then click the “Duplicate” button in the top toolbar. This will create a new component based on the styling of the original object.

3. Import them from another file: If you have an existing design in another file, you can import it into your Figma file as a component.

To do this, select the “File” menu item from the top bar, and then click “Import”. This will open up a dialog box where you can select the file you want to import.

4. Use a library:

If you’re looking for more premade components, you can check out Figma’s library of free and paid components.

To access this, select the “Libraries” option from the left sidebar. This will open up a list of all the available libraries.

PRO TIP: If you are not careful, you can easily get a component in Figma. This can happen if you accidentally click on the wrong button or if you are not paying attention to what you are doing. Once you have a component in Figma, it can be difficult to get rid of it. If you do not want a component in Figma, make sure that you are careful when you are working with the software.

You can also find some great libraries of free components on sites like FreePik. Simply search for “Figma library” and you’ll find plenty of results.


So, those are a few ways to get components in Figma! You can create them from scratch, duplicate existing objects, import them from another file, or use a library. So get out there and start creating those amazing designs!
