Allow me to search and open existing files in new tab in the Figma app

I’m so used to the browser pattern when when you want to look up something, you open up a new tab to search for it. I keep finding myself doing that with figma where I open a new tab to open up an existing file. It makes me want to search file titles and be able to open it from the new tab rather than clicking back to the home tab and sifting through my files.

  1. when I click cmd + t new tabs open allowing me to create new file. I would like to open some project

  2. new tab

  3. Wouldn’t it be nice to have possibility to open projects with cmd + t ? Like in vscode, or chrome, it is pretty common use case nowadays

“Open recent files” feature by clicking and holding “+” button on a files tabs panel.

Like in browsers. Really miss this feature.

I don’t know when I picked up this habit, but multiple times a week now I will accidentally create a new document and then start typing the name of an existing document in order to open it. Maybe I’m the only one, but I think it’d be nice to be able to search for and open existing documents from the new document screen. I mean, right now it’s not doing a whole lot. It just lets you choose between a Figma and FigJam document. There’s certainly room for a search interface, although I understand why it might be undesirable from a focus standpoint.
