I’m facing the same thing - usually quitting and restarting Figma will fix it, but for some reason, that didn’t work today either.

Same issue here. And no, it’s not OS-wide, it’s only an issue with Figma.

Same problem here. If restarting does not work usually “force quit” the Figma agent from the activity monitor. This is mildly infuriating.

Zoom in/out does not work and requires restarting figma, which often happens,Is this a bug? Has anyone encountered this problem?

This happened to me the other day, and it has happened to me before. It’s definitely not an OS problem since I can still zoom in and out on browsers and other apps.

The strange thing is that it only happens with zooming in/out with a trackpad, when I use the keyboard hotkeys it works fine.

Facing the same issues as everyone else. Pinch to zoom randomly stops working. Issue is only present in Figma.

Same here on a M1 MacBook Air too. Hopefully this gets fixed soon. Going from one app to another is causing the issue.

It just happened! I’m using a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2019) Core i7 with Monterey V12.3. Hope Figma is investigating the issue!

Hi Josh - any idea when this might be fixed? It’s still happening multiple times each day, so you can imagine how frustrating it is - thanks for looking into this!

I am also having this issue.

I’ve been having this issue on and off over the last year of using Figma. Joey’s tip around resetting it in the macOS system preferences is the only thing that reliably fixes this issue for me.

Thanks Joey!

Hey @Josh.

This is a bug in Figma’s app, not the MacOS. Pinch-to-zoom reliably works in other Mac applications, like Safari and Sketch and Photoshop. The issue is recurring several times a day. Could the dev team provide an estimate on when they plan to fix this bug?

Thanks,
JJ
