Here are all the updates that have been announced in Figma Config 2023, some updates are too advanced and some are basic but necessary features. Let’s dive into new features and I’ll try to explain every new feature. for more details, you can view the video below:


1. Hello,Dev mode

Dev Mode is a way to interact with Figma files, specifically designed with developers in mind. Figma has created this mode as a way to reduce the friction in design handoff and allow for better communication and design implementation.

2. Let’s Use Variable

Variables store values—like fill colors, padding, visibility, and more—that can be reused throughout designs. Like styles and components, variables can also be published to team libraries. When you update the value of a variable, you can update designs across files accordingly.

3. Advanced Prototyping

Advanced prototyping now lets you build more realistic prototypes with fewer frames and connections! Now you can use variables, conditional logic, and expressions to prototype more dynamically.

4. Prototype Inline Preview

Use inline preview to play your prototype directly on the canvas, alongside your design. With inline preview, any design changes are immediately reflected in the preview.

5. New Auto layout

One of the most important improvements is the Auto Layout, which includes many of the most crucial capabilities such as -> Minimum Width / Height -> Maximum Width / Height -> Direction Wrap -> Text Truncation: Max Lines.

6. New Auto layout

At long last, font previews, improved search, and filters in Figma’s font picker are here! Pick the right typeface for any occasion.
