New file issue

So I went to create a new file and the screen came up with selecting a new design file or figmajam. At the bottom, I selected to “remember my choice next time” or however it was worded, now everytime I hit command N it creates a figmajam file and I want it to default to design file. How can I fix/revert this?

I have not found a simple default setting for new files in the Windows application. There is no way to check for Mac.

You can try to log out of the application through the menu ⟩ Log Out. This should clear the cache, cookies, and other app data.

You can also find the “settings.json” file, open it in a text editor and change the value of the parameter “defaultEditorType” to “design” so that the Design file is created by default, or just leave the quotes to reset the default settings. It should look like this: "defaultEditorType": "".
