Launched: Manual resizing of sticky notes

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
I can’t resize sticky notes manually - this would be really nice though. I’m not sure if it’s a bug or a feature, but it feels like a missing Feature.

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
Yes. Post a Sticky… try to change it.

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?
I can only test it in the browser Mircosoft edge (company policy…)

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
Mircosoft Edge Version 90.0.818.42


I’m creating a click flow diagram and I wanted to add sticky notes to some steps with questions. The workaround for now is to re-size the entire flow diagram but it is more work to adjust text size later

Hey there :wave: At this time, stickies cannot be resized. Stickies have a set width and minimum height. The height will change based on the amount of content you add to them. You can find more info in this Help Center article: Resize, scale, rotate, and flip objects


Maybe you have it in plans at least?
Because I miss this feature so much and now have to use Miro instead…


Hi there,

I’ve recently started to use FigJam and I believe it’s a great tool to rapidly flowchart and communicate ideas to a team. I want to leave a sticky note in a couple of places and many a times they vary in the type of content within them. Can you please allow for a feature to re-size the sticky note?


This was the first thing I tried to do with sticky notes :smile:
Yeah! … I need this feature.



I’d say having resizable stickies is an essential need for FigJam and basic expectation for users! So I hope Figma have this in their next update of FigJam!


This seems basic and throws off my workflow when transitioning from Miro (well, assessing if it’s possible, little things like this make it hard to convince unfortunately)


+1 to this. Also, it seems like this functionality existed but went away? I noticed a weird behavior if I grouped a sticky note + dot sticker, then tried to resize. The dot sticker would overlap with text. Now I can no longer figure out how to resize at all.

Please make it possible to resize Sticky notes on FigJam.


+1. Knowing nothing about Figjam upon the first time I used it, this was also the first thing I tried to do with a sticky. If that’s you, heart Samson’s message. FigPeople™ (aka designers / product people): By making your canvas zoomable and elements scalable to N degrees, you have effectively created a context in which proportions become an important aspect of content design. I don’t think it makes a ton of sense for some objects to scale and others not to.


This is definitely a missing feature blocking adoption of the product as a whole.


The notes I (and others) add to our FigJam diagrams very dramatically in the amount of content. I would like to be able to resize sticky notes horizontally. Extensive text makes the notes very long and hard to read and layout.


+1 stickies get ridiculously long and narrow - need to be able to resize to make them wider. Thank you!


For some reason Miro can do this well, I’m sure FigJam could do it too. :wink:

+1 - yes, one of the reasons we as a team still use Miro instead of Figjam. Resizing of sticky notes and text is really important when you are crowded on a file

I was working with stickies in Figjam just now and I thought it’s a bug from my side.
It would be nice to add the resize functionality to sticky notes.

we switched to miro for that reason, been half a year now and the team doesn’t seem to think it’s priority so… :wave::wave::wave:

+1 Important functionality! Please consider to prioritize.

+1. I am a bit disappointed that I can’t resize any sticky note.
