Add Shape Builder tool from Illustrator

  1. I’ve found it to be very unintuitive to create quick unique shapes in Figma. They have a set of predefined masking buttons, but nothing as flexible and easy to use as Illustrator’s Shape Builder.

  2. In Illustrator, there is a tool that allows you to combine or subtract space from overlapping shapes in order to build new shapes quickly. This makes creating icons extremely simple and fast. In Figma, every time I have to create a unique shape, I find myself fumbling through the (in my opinion obtuse) masking buttons to try to figure out how to get it to create the shape I need, and then it seems to retain the original shapes behind the mask, rather than creating new paths and a new bounding box for the new shape. It’s annoying.

  3. Does anyone else miss using the Shape Builder tool, or struggle with the current masking buttons?
