Figma is too slow after new update

I’m encountering some issues with Figma; regardless of whether the file has many pages or few, the operations are very laggy. I’ve tried changing my network and using a VPN, but neither has made a significant difference. What should I try now?

Figma is too slow after the latest UI update, I can’t see the items while moving in the file, I cleared the cache and still not fixed


Is there a way to return to the previous UI? My Figma is so slow!

Found the answer: If you get stuck, we’ve made it easy to switch back to the previous design. From inside a design file, open the help menu and click Go back to previous UI .

Hey All, so sorry to hear you’re having performance issues in Figma!

Is this happening both in browser and using the desktop app? Can you try these troubleshooting steps, and let us know if you see any improvement?

  • logging out and back in
  • un-installing and re-installing the desktop app
  • clearing your browser/desktop app’s cache

Here’s how to clear the desktop app cache on a Mac:

  1. Quit the Figma desktop app
  2. Open and enter the following command:
    rm -rf “$HOME/Library/Application Support/Figma/”{Desktop,DesktopProfile}
  3. Try opening the desktop app again

Here’s how to clear the desktop app cache on Windows:

  1. Close the Figma desktop app
  2. Open the Start menu, and paste in this, followed by enter: %APPDATA%\Figma
  3. In the window that opens, delete the Desktop and DesktopProfile folders if they exist
  4. Launch the desktop app again

Unfortunately this option is not visible for me in help menu

Thanks for your reply,
Actually, I’m using the app itself, and this issue is very interrupting.
I did clear the app’s cache before.
will try the command option and will reply to you soon
