I work at company which deals with sensitive information. A common method used to keep information from leaking is refraining from using cloud services. Since Figma is a cloud based app, I’m unable to use it as most users normally do.
It is pretty clear that Figma team decided to make it impossible to use Figma offline. As stated in their help docs, while offline you cannot " Create new files, or open files that you don’t already have open."
This makes Figma unusable while offline.
Many people out there would benefit from using Figma offline. I don’t see a reason to keep limiting the offline functionality as it currently is, so, Figma Team, please help a brotha out!
