I haven’t been using Figma for long, but the user experience from clients viewing designs via the share link has been consistently bad.
I had a play today to see it from the client’s point of view and my experience was:
- its not clear that you can continue without signing up
- it loaded the screen at 4% zoom
- I couldn’t initially get the zoom to adjust - possibly it was still loading
- once I changed to 100%, it wasn’t centered on the design, so from client’s perspective it was then a blank screen.
Whilst the experience might be fine for people who use Figma for any amount of time, it’s not a good experience for clients who will only use it for a few minutes to view a design.
As I said, I haven’t been using Figma for very long so maybe I can do something different from my end to improve the experience.
