Place Image : Has been opening the same file for over 6 months

I don’t know if it is supposed to be that way, if it does that to anyone else, but for many months, every time I go to fetch an image (using the shortcut to place image), my folder opens the same file every time, even though I have not touched it in many months, so every single time, I have to make my way to the correct file. It is driving me insane. At least if I know it’s supposed to be that way, then as stupid as it is, I know there’s nothing I can do, but if I can stop that from happening that 'd be great…

This is a bug.

  1. Try deleting or temporarily moving the folder which is being opened. After you open the Place Image dialog again, Figma should get unstuck and you can move the original folder back.

  2. Try reinstalling Figma (not simply delete the app, but remove all its system files).

Hey, thanks for the response. I did completely uninstall figma and reinstalled it, I moved the file in question, and the same thing still happens… It is still calling out for the same folder name, within the folder where it used to live… I m not sure its a bug at this point. I think its just how it is… but thank you anyways

This is not how it is, this is a bug that happens for some people.

Then move the folder.
