Text is showing as filled outline stroke

Hey Community,

I am facing an issue in Figma text. My text sometimes shows as filled outline stroke but its editable which means its still a text. When I export it it also show it there as well.

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out. According to the help center article;

When you use outline stroke, Figma will:

  • Convert text layers from editable text to vector paths
  • Not combine any objects or layers you selected into a single layer

When Outline stroke is applied, each glyph (or letter) converts to its own vector node—so still you can edit each glyph individually.

Could you please explain a little bit more about your expected behavior?


Thanks for this solution. But the problem is different. I don’t know what happened to my Figma. It all started when I was working on the mobile app design and used the material m3 design library and published that library. After that, I am getting this issue on almost every Figma file of mine. Its editable means I can change the text which means that it’s not outline stroke. when I zoom out it’s good but when I zoom in it’s showing filled. It also shows me the same when I export it as png or JPG. This is frustrating as it does not help in creating the projects from scratch on the new Figma file.
