Hi i’m mainly do my copy and paste text on Figma. Yesterday I cam with this annoying “bug” that it keeps adding space below the text when you copy something from the net. See image below, how do I eliminate this? All of my settings sre correct from my previous works.
Hi can I ask something having a hard time dealing with this issue how to fix this issue on Figma where when you copy something from a certain website (ex: google spreadsheet) it added space below the text (see image below)
since few days ago, on my computer it has this problem when i copy text from teams conversition paste in Figma(copy from website also has this bug). i tried copy from website text field and it’s all ok.
I tried from my Apple device and everything is ok.
I remember there was the same problem in the past. but I think it was fixed by Figma team
Hello, I am trying to copy/paste text, from any basic word software to Figma and FigJam canvas, with proper formatting. But everything went chaotic after my laptop reset.
How it worked before the laptop reset
When I copied a paragraph from any software, it pasted exactly in the format it was copied.
How it works now
When I copy a paragraph from the same softwares, it pastes the text as if I copied it from a protected PDF document (with inconsistent formatting, many spaces and A LOT of line breaks).
I tried many text softwares and apps, but it only happens in Figma and FigJam. Never saw anything like this in years on this app, lost a lot of energy formatting everything.
How do I fix this please??
Screenshots (of the copy/paste)
Additional info :
I tried Ctrl+C / Ctrl V, and also Ctrl+C / Ctrl+Shift+V, but the same thing happens for both.
I tried softwares like Word, OpenOffice, even random txts softwares, in many extensions (.doc, .docx, .odt…) but the same thing happens.
Try pasting the text into a plain text editor first to remove any formatting. Then, copy it from the text editor and paste it into Figma. Moreover, ensure that your text box in Figma doesn’t have excessive line height or padding settings. Adjusting these settings can help eliminate unwanted space.
When copying and pasting content from Word or Excel, an issue persists where a blank space of 5-10 lines is added before and after the content. This problem has been ongoing for weeks despite updating and reinstalling Figma. Notably, the issue doesn’t occur when copying content from a browser or online Word/Excel file. This concern is prevalent among my colleagues who are also using MAC.
