Figma Shortcuts

Figma is a fantastic wireframing tool and using shortcuts greatly increases workflow speed. Here I share my favourite shortcuts I use every day.

I moved to Figma from Adobe XD in early 2022 after joining Kevin Geary’s Inner Circle community. The trainings and community have been invaluable to my development, not only to web design but business in general.

Using his new ACSS product, Frames for Figma, has forced me to up my game and I’m sharing the power shortcuts that I use everyday in Figma. This allows me use ACSS Frames during the wireframing process.

I’m sure I will be adding / adjusting these the more I use Frames but these all serve my workflow well.
