How do you use kits in Figma?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 6:31 pm

Kits are a great way to quickly create a prototype or product. They’re also a great way to share ideas and collaborate with other designers.

To use a kit in Figma, first select the kit from the list on the left-hand side of the screen. Once you’ve selected the kit, the main window will look like this:

Inside the kit, you’ll find a number of elements and tools. You can start by dragging and dropping elements into the main window, or by using the buttons on the toolbar.

Once you’ve arranged the elements the way you want, you can start to create your prototype. To start, click on the ‘Create Prototype’ button on the toolbar.

This will open a new window, where you can start creating your prototype.

PRO TIP: Kits in Figma are a great way to speed up your design process, but they can also be a source of frustration if you’re not careful. Here are a few things to keep in mind when using kits in Figma:

1. Make sure you’re using the correct version of the kit. Some kits are not backward compatible, so using an older version of the kit could cause problems.

2. Pay attention to changes made to the kit. If a change is made that you don’t like, you may have to start from scratch.

3. Be careful when sharing kits with others. Make sure they have the same version of the kit, or they may not be able to use it correctly.

To add interactivity to your prototype, you can use the buttons on the toolbar to add buttons, sliders, and other elements. Alternatively, you can use the ‘Add Interaction’ button on the toolbar to add a block of code that will automatically interact with the elements in your prototype.

Once you’ve finished creating your prototype, you can save it by clicking on the ‘Save’ button on the toolbar. Alternatively, you can click on the ‘Publish’ button to share your prototype with other designers.


Kits are a great way to quickly create a prototype or product.

Using a kit in Figma is simple and easy to use, so you’ll be able to get up and running quickly.
