GIF images do not animate

  1. When I paste a GIF into figjam I expect it to animate. It does not. It would be very useful as we use Miro to plan features and having a gif of an action is immensely useful for this style of work

  2. Paste a GIF into a figjam file

  3. n/a

  4. See in web app

  5. Windows 10 / Edge

Agreed! Helpful to show animation examples, for example!

Agreed.
Gifs are a big part of our work process, and the way figma handles them is one of it’s biggest downsides.
