Problem Exporting images. Figma says "Downloading images" and keeps there without exporting


I am having an issue while exporting comps in Figma.
I am trying to export just one comp and Figma says “Downloading images 0/42” when actually there is not even one image and keeps saying that without exporting.
Screenshot attached.
I tried to install again the desktop app and also export the comp in the Figma browser and still the same issue.
Anyone knows how can I solve this issue please? I have to deliver so many comps and this is driving me crazy.

Thank you very much in advance.


I’m experiencing exactly the same thing since yesterday evening. Seems like a Figma bug but not sure where to report it. I’m a new user, so I thought I might be doing something wrong. :confused:


Same here. It’s been happening for a couple of months on and off. Super frustrating considering we pay for the service.

You can copy your materials to new “Design file” in Figma and export from there

or you can use DOWNSIZE plugin on that page and then it would be faster

Thanks everyone for your answers. Not sure either where we can report this issue to Figma developers. It keeps happening on and off. Copying and pasting is a good temporary solution for a single image but it can be really frustrating when you need to export hundreds of assets.
