I have a lot of type sizes and colors, and it’s a bit daunting to scroll or search the colors every time. Could we either have the option to expand panels larger or have them ‘pop out’ similar to Photoshop panels? Seeing all the colors and typesizes at once (similar to the right panel ‘Design’ tab view when nothing is selected Figma) is useful when we are exploring new designs. Thank you!
Although this suggestion is something I resonate with, kind of, you can still search for them. Proper naming for your colors can help. Point is that most people are using tokens to handle that kind of stuff so I guess we might see something during Config 23.
I’ve set up a some font styling (based on tailwind presets) and am wondering is it possible to enlarge the dialog window where I can select them? currently I am having to scroll alot. I’m using a 5K screen, so there is plenty of space for a larger window…
- As a user, I can drag and expand my Layers and Assets work-panel. I’d like to have that functionality on the right work-panel (Design, Prototype, Inspect panel). Some of our design tokens are a bit long and are truncated due to character count limits.
Could we please get the ability for the RHS panel to be resized, in order to read component names.
The Properties panel and menus for selecting styles are very narrow. This makes it difficult to identify and select styles that are deeply nested in a tree structure or have long names because the text is truncated (Note that the distinguishing suffixes are often at the end of the names and get cut off).
Note: we often end up with long names for color styles when we match them with names of variables that devs use in their CSS.
I have at times used the Chrome dev tools to adjust the CSS for the width of this panel. This help a little but is cumbersome to do every time and results in a janky UI.
Please improve the Figma UI so that we can see the full names of styles and components in the Properties panel and menus.
Does any one else struggle with the names of styles and components being truncated in the Properties panel and menus?
Do you wish the menus can dynamically adjust their width to fit the whole names of the list items, or at least use word wrapping?
Do you wish you could resize the width of the Properties panel like you can with the Layers panel?
