Refresh thumbnail

We’re using thumbnails to show the status of our design tickets.

Especially when you have a large amount of tickets in a project, it’s super annoying when those thumbnails show the wrong status. Is that ticket in development or still in handoff? Who knows …


Same problem here! I’d love an option to right click and refresh the thumbnail. I’ve been experiencing this issue on a regular basis since joining Figma in Feb 2020. The “restore default thumbnail” workaround is my typical go-to, but unfortunately that doesn’t even work 100% of the time.

I disagree with other posters on this a little. For me refresh would be nice but it should just be updated instantly. Typically one thumbnail would be edited at a time so in my view it should just push the update as soon as you exit the screen on which it sits.

Ooh, I am loving how you set up your thumbs. What’s the row of icons at the bottom?

Just close and open figma and thumbnail will be refreshed.

Please help to improve this feature.

not updating again.

Yes! This is so annoying. Can Figma team please update this delayed/inconsistent update problem?

We have hundred of files, the thumbnail is key organization and file finding.

Yes, It’s very annoying. I love Figma but this part is really uncomfortable. Please fix it Figma team!

This is still annoying and not fixed.

+1 Unfortunately, makes this nice feature very frustrating to use

This is ridiculous! Please fix this.

I am having the same problem. The thumbnail that is showing up is a gray box. I already closed Figma, closed the file, reset the thumbnail artboard, and nothing. My Thumbnail cover don’t update. Please fix this!


Stilll having that same issue

Having the same issue… I reverted and created a new thumbnail on all my files (twice!) and this fix only works for a few seconds if at all.

I guess I have to wait until Figma fixes this!


Still having issues with the thumbnail update too. And, like others, I rely on the thumbnails to show the status of a file.

I’m having the same issue.
Closing and reopening Figma, or toggling the set as thumbnail only works for a few seconds and then it reverts back

Same issue here. Seems that none of the fixes works at the moment.
