Embedded frames containing any non "pass through" color mode render checkerboard boxes

  1. Describe the problem you’re experiencing:

When embedded frames contain any frame/group/component/layer with a color mode applied (anything other than “pass through” set), the background of the embed goes crazy showing a randomly sized checkerboard box.

Workaround: try and ensure nothing uses color modes in any frame you want to embed. or try and ignore the glitch / tell clients to ignore the glitch…

No, bugs should be reported to Figma support team via the bug report form.

@Gleb Ok, no problem, I’ll use that form. Thanks for the fast response
