I was given a .fig file:
(The Weekly Picnic - Mobile.fig - Google Drive) and when
I follow directions found here:
(basically creating a new design file and dropping the .fig file)
I get the error:
Files failed to import…
Drop .fig or .jam files into the file browser to import them
I’m on a Mac using the Figma application version 116.7.103
I was just given the file, made by someone else and I have no idea what version of Figma they were using.
Any ideas on what might be causing the import issue? I searched all over the forum and none of the proposed solutions worked for me.
So the right way of doing this was:
Drafts → Import file
The drag and drop approach does not work.
Hey Christian, you might be trying to drag and drop these files into the Editor, but in order to import a file, you’ll need to be in the File Browser (you can see a gif in Import files into Figma).
How can this be so unintuitive?
Hello, I’m using the figma import button but getting a “Internal error during import”
I’m using chrome version 114.0.5735.106
I also used ‘import’ but I’m getting the same error as the person drag-and-dropping the files in the browser.
I just reloaded and tried it again and it worked again
