Figma is a powerful design tool that allows designers to collaborate and work on design projects together. While Figma does not have a traditional chat feature like messaging apps, it does provide a commenting feature that serves a similar purpose.
Adding Comments in Figma
Comments in Figma are a way for designers to communicate with each other, provide feedback, and discuss design decisions right within the design files. Here's how to add comments in Figma:
- Open the Figma file you want to collaborate on.
- Select the element or area of the design you want to comment on.
- Right-click on the selected element and choose "Add Comment" from the context menu.
- A comment box will appear where you can type your message.
- Press "Enter" to post the comment.
Replying to Comments
If you want to reply to a specific comment, follow these steps:
- Hover over the comment you want to reply to.
- Click on the "Reply" button that appears on the right side of the comment box.
- Type your reply and press "Enter" to post it.
Once a comment has been addressed or is no longer relevant, you can resolve it to keep the design discussion organized:
- Hover over the comment you want to resolve.
- Click on the three-dot menu icon that appears on the right side of the comment box.
- Choose "Resolve" from the dropdown menu.
If you want to get the attention of specific collaborators, you can mention them in your comments:
- Type "@" followed by the collaborator's name in the comment box.
- Select the person you want to mention from the list that appears.
- They will receive a notification about the mention.
Figma's commenting feature is a great way for designers to get feedback from clients or communicate with each other when multiple people are working on the same design file. It keeps the design process organized and helps teams collaborate effectively.
Remember to use comments wisely, be clear in your communication, and always stay respectful when discussing design choices with others. Happy designing!
