Copy text directly from image files

Similar to the way Apple Preview works on OS and iOS, Figma should be able to detect text from imported images and give you the ability to copy and paste it within the app.


Similar to how you can copy text from images on iPhones. And search include images in the search.

Interaction: Screenshot an image, paste into Figma, double click on image text to copy some or all of it.

I’m super interested in this feature. Just wanted to create a topic, but it already exists.

Absolutely. I have saved the text you provided and will keep it in mind for any future reference. Rest assured that I am confident in my ability to retrieve the text whenever you need it.
