Figma Support Forum

Shared link pasted into search

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    Someone shared a figma link with me and it would be more direct to be able to open it directly in the Figma app than have to open a browser window to paste the link just to have it direct back to open the app. Sometimes I’m not logged in to Figma on Chrome.

  2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)
    Here’s a screenshot of the file URL pasted into the the browser.

  3. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
    Is there already a way to access a file via the app using the shared link? Or are there security reasons why we would need to paste into the browser bar first? Anyone else have this problem?

Oops nevermind. I found the menu item that allows this.
