Follow these steps to import your Figma designs into Framer:

  1. Open Figma and locate the design you want to import into Framer.

  8. Select the Figma design you want to import from the list of your Figma projects.
  9. Framer will begin importing the selected design from Figma. Depending on the complexity of your design, this process may take some time.
  10. Once the import is complete, you'll find your Figma design converted into a fully functional website prototype in Framer.
  11. You can now use Framer's interactive features and code components to enhance your design and create an interactive user experience.

Conclusion:

By using Framer's plugin to import Figma designs directly into Framer, you can save valuable time in the development process and focus on creating interactive and dynamic websites.
