- Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
Problem: Figma uses too much RAM. Launch Activity Monitor and you notice Figma is the top app in Memory usage.
- Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)
There’s already plenty of threads about opening Figma and already using all the available RAM. Do a search in the forums and there’s a lot of comments about it using too much RAM and making the computer slow down. Even closing down files doesn’t seem to do much for reduce RAM usage.
- Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
(e.g. Does anyone else experience this? Is anyone using a plugin or workaround to help solve this?, etc.
Some common tips are: Remove hidden layers, clean up the file, remove unnecessary stuff, make everything a component, reduce image resolution, etc.
But, still after doing all of that, Figma just uses too much RAM.
