View Version History menu option is gone

Tried looking at View Version History, but the option is no longer in the menu. In order to access it, I have to click “Save to Version History” and then “View All History”.

Anyone else running into this issue?

I used to be able to access it via the ⌘+/ hotkey.

Hey @Phil_Larsen, thank you for reaching out!

You can access a file’s version history from the file name menu.

  1. Click on an empty spot in the canvas to deselect any layers.
  2. In the toolbar, click the next to the file name.
  3. Select Show Version History from the options.
  4. Figma will show the file’s version history in the right sidebar.

Check out our Help Center article for more information: View a file’s version history

Let me know if this helps!

Thank you,
Gayani

Thanks, that is a little more direct. Why was it moved out of the other menus and menu search hotkey?

Hi @Phil_Larsen, Thanks for replying! It seems like I can still access the version history from ⌘+/


Hope it helps! Let us know if I missed any additional point.

Thanks,

That is the behavior I used to have. I wonder what changed.

EDIT: Just checked and it is occurring to me on the web browser too. I normally just use the desktop app.

Behavior persists even after a reinstall

Hi @Phil_Larsen, I totally understand your frustration and thank you so much for your patience.

I double-checked and I’m not able to access Show version history from Quick actions, both on the web version and on desktop app currently.
Thank you for flagging this, I will inquire internally about this behavior and once we have any information, we will update you!
In the meantime, please use the file name menu.

Thank you for your understanding,
