Copy comments from a Figma files to another one while duplicating/copying content/designs

copy comments from a Figma file to another one while duplicating/copying content/designs.


As a researcher (aka I am not the Figma Guru) working with designers in the Figma files. Being able to have a copy of my comments for my records as researcher and pushing duplicate comments for the designer to resolve as they wish to without interfering with my historical copy of why we decided to change the design would be a wonderful product addition!

Has there been a solution to the copying over of comments along with a file if you copy the file from 1 file to a new file in Figma? Thank you


Hi everyone,
Iā€™m trying to use the API to get file comments and then post them in the same location on another file which is a duplication of the original.
Figma attaches comments in frames to a node_id.
Does anyone know if the new file (the duplicated one) has a different node_id for the frames than the original? if so, how can I post the comments on the new file at the same location, any ideas?
