Selecting a layer desaturates the entire screen

30 second explainer video

This only happens in this particular file for some reason.
Why is this happening and how do I toggle it off?

Try to change the color space in the desktop app.


It’s the same color profile as my other files.

Very strange behaviour, now I created a new frame and layers and they aren’t consistent with the rest of the file.

Figma section whiteout 2?

I’ve had this as a minor annoyance for ages, found it was only happening on one monitor not the other so put it down to a monitor hardware effect. But changing to sRGB has solved the issue, thank you! :slight_smile:

Hey, it only happens on my external display as well!
Switching to sRGB worked :slight_smile:

Hi, lately I have an issue with Figma color. When I click on the frame, the whole workspace changes its colors saturation. I did try to restart, update my Figma, and it doesn’t work.

Here is a screenshot of the same Frame when I select and deselect itself. You can easy to see the Figma Page background has been changed. I’m using MacOS Big Sur, I used got this issue on Catalina.

I’m getting a weird color variation whenever I select a frame or any of its child elements
everything inside and outside the frame slightly shifts saturation and brightness

this is happening exclusively on the desktop app
and regardless of the color space option selected

using the web version as a base, it looks like I can trust that the true values are the ones prior to selection

but a drag nonetheless

any thoughts?
