I have a problem with the prototype when working on more demanding sites

  1. Hey all I’m a new UI&UX designer learning to work with Figma. I’ve done 2-3 projects in Figma, so I’m a beginner. I’ve never had a Figma fail and the prototype has always worked correctly. A few days ago, I was finishing a page for a client and Figma started to tell me that I had used the capacity of the given file and started cutting my prototype. So I followed the instructions and divided the project into several files, but unfortunately the prototype kept crashing. I tried to send the prototype to a colleague who has a more powerful PC - whether it would work for him, but he also had a problem. In the end, I had to upload the page broken into multiple files without links - which was not good. Is it common for Figma to have a problem with larger projects? Alternatively, what to do when my prototype fails?

Thank you in advance for any advice and help.

Hi @2GFS ,
Sorry to hear you are having issues with your file.
Figma is browser-based, and every browser has its own active memory limit of ~2GB per browser tab.
Here’s some tips to reduce your memory usage : https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/360040528173-Reduce-memory-usage-in-files#reduce Hope it helps!
