This documentation is valid for:

Designers can send designs made in Figma format to developers. Then, developers can import these designs using the Design Import option in the IDE

How to send a Figma design

When a designer sends a design, it should include a Figma URL and provide an Access Token in case the developer does not have an account in Figma or cannot access the Figma project.

The Figma URL must have the following format:[?version-id=:version]

Save a snapshot

It is highly recommended to save a snapshot of the Figma file before sharing the Figma URL, which includes the version-id parameter.

The snapshot can be saved by going to File > Save to Version History in Figma, and Figma will ask you for a revision title and revision description as follows.

DesignOps - Export design - Figma - Save snapshot   DesignOps - Export design - Figma - Save snapshot - Comment


Finally, you can get the snapshot URL by going to File > Show Version History, selecting your snapshot, and clicking on the Copy Link option.

Custom fonts

If you are using Figma fonts, GeneXus will try to get them from Google Fonts but this process might not work in every case. In case the developer had experienced issues with the font files while importing the design file into GeneXus or if you are using custom fonts (not provided by Figma), you have to deliver the font files to the developer and the developer must install them on the development machine (in Windows, installation have to be done by right-clicking and selecting "Install for all users" option).
