Has the functionality for sharing links to selected frame been removed?
I upgraded to Figma Desktop App version 116.2.4, and now I no longer see the option in the dialog that appears when I select a frame and hit the ‘Share’ button.
I double checked, by creating a new document with a couple of empty frames in, and still no luck.
Does anybody else suffer this issue? If it’s been removed, then it’s a massively frusrating regression – we frequently link to individual frames when working with developers and referencing design features.
Same here. This option no longer appears in my dialogue either.
In addition, I also no longer see the usual Share modal. Both in Figma’s Desktop App and in the browser, only a fixed dialogue opens below the Share button (on right-hand side in the toolbar) without the option / the checkbox to link to a specific frame.
Even when a frame is selected, the ‘Copy Link’ button from that dialog links only to the page, not the selected frame.
As you said, the option is still available in a context menu – but my frustration is more around the option’s removal from the share dialog. Getting to the ‘Copy Link’ option is a bit of a fiddly pain there.
Maybe there are actually different versions?
I am using Enterprise from my work, desktop app on a mac.
My Share modal also was updated… including more tabs on top like Myles (Invite, Settings, Embed, Publish to Community), but similarily missing link to frame.
Compare to Tank666’s screenshot, which still shows the old modal (and only the original 2 tabs).
Came here b/c the “Share specific file” checkbox has disappeared from my Share dialog box as well. My company is on a Professional plan and I’m using the Mac desktop app (v. 114.6.1 and OS Monterrey v12.5.1).
I can say that the CMD+L shortcut appears to be working for me when I attach a design to a Jira ticket. Using that shortcut does appear to copy the frame-specific link.
It seems real strange that that checkbox be arbitrarily removed.
I just want to clarify what I’m talking about. I built standard design titles as Design Thinking Components that are used throughout my company. If there’s a screen or whole flow or a whole page of design, there are large, clear titles that span the scope of what we wish to share.
I want to be able to click on a title (which is a frame, but a component instance), hit Cmd/Ctrl-L and share that link to the title, which doesn’t EVER work because Figma refuses to link to component instances from Cmd/Ctrl L.
This is a bug that causes chronic pain. Fix it please so that it’s as easy to link to a frame, whether or not it’s a component, a component instance, or just a regular frame.
