Better plugin window management (fixed sidebar, multiple windows, etc.)

1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
I can open 1 plugin at time, the plugins are located only in plugin section. I don’t have any possibility to add plugin to UI (exp. sidebar). Also plugin windows can be opened only in Figma webview window.

2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)
example of sidebar for plugins

3. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
Does anyone else have same problems?


Can you explain what you mean by this?

This image should describe everything.
Simply speaking, when you start a plugin you can move it only around window of the Figma Desktop app.

Also I can’t launch more than 1 plugin at time.


Great thanks for sharing! I just updated the title of this post to make it a little clearer. :slight_smile:

Would love to have this implemented.

Example: It is easier to actually go to Unsplash Website and download images than
Clicking on Figma Logo-> Plugins->Unsplash->(wait loading)->Use plugin.

Having easy access could help a lot!


Yes please, this is an essential part of the workflow that make me think about going back to Xd - personalizing the toolkit UI. There are many features that are missing in Figma that are masterfully fixed by the plugin community. Please do fix this <3
