Open recent files

One of the most common actions for any recurring program is opening RECENT files. Figma doesn’t really support this feature.

I know… There’s this way to go to the “F” tab, canceling a search that was done by 1-2 back actions, going to Recent tab and clicking the desired file. (so many steps!!)

How is that a decent UX by any standards, God knows.

Why not a simple “recent” menu and list like ANY other program?
Not only it’s FAR more quick and simple, it’s also follows a user very strong and core habit and most importantly - It doesn’t break or interfere with your current workflow.
