Figma Support Forum

Toggle between edit and read-only modes like Google Docs

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this

As a developer, going into my designers figma file is perfectly fine until I go to select a component for export but accidentally move it by one pixel to the left and/or delete it without knowing. Yes, this happens when I think my window is focused on my code editor but it’s focused on Figma.

  1. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)

This is pretty self explanatory but for more context, here’s an example of Google Doc’s view-modes toggle: Image 2021-10-25 at 10.47.3...

  1. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
    (e.g. Does anyone else experience this? Is anyone using a plugin or workaround to help solve this?, etc.

Anyone else afraid they’ll mess something up with somebody else’s figma files? I know I can’t be the only one! :slight_smile:
