Viewing File History Version in Figma.
Figma's version history feature allows you to track all of the changes that have been made to a file over time. This can be helpful for collaborating with others, or for reverting to a previous version of a file if you make a mistake.
In the past, viewing a file's version history in Figma was a bit cumbersome. You had to open the file in the Figma desktop app, and then click through a series of menus to find the version history panel.
However, in a recent update, Figma has made it much easier to view a file's version history. You can now do it directly from the Figma web app.
Using the new update for viewing file history.
To view a file's version history in the Figma web app, simply follow these steps:
- Open the file in the Figma web app.
- Click the Version history button in the toolbar.
- A panel will appear on the right side of the screen that shows all of the versions of the file.
- To view a specific version of the file, click on it in the panel.
- The file will be updated to show the selected version.
You can also use the version history panel to compare two versions of a file. To do this, simply click on the Compare button next to the two versions you want to compare.
The version history panel is a great way to keep track of all of the changes that have been made to a file, and to revert to a previous version if necessary.
Benefits of using version history in Figma.
There are many benefits to using version history in Figma, including:
- Collaboration: Version history makes it easy to collaborate with others on Figma files. You can see all of the changes that have been made to a file, and you can revert to a previous version if necessary.
- Reversibility: Version history allows you to revert to a previous version of a file if you make a mistake. This can be helpful for preventing costly mistakes.

How to use version history to improve your workflow.
Here are a few tips on how to use version history to improve your workflow:
- Create new versions frequently: Create a new version of your file every time you make a significant change. This will make it easier to revert to a previous version if necessary.
- Give meaningful names to your versions: Give your versions meaningful names so that you can easily identify them in the version history panel.
- Use the compare feature: Use the compare feature to compare two versions of a file to see what changes have been made. This can be helpful for debugging and for understanding the changes that others have made.
- Delete old versions: Delete old versions of your files to save space. You can keep a few recent versions, but you don't need to keep every version of your file.
Version history is a powerful tool that can help you to improve your workflow in Figma. By using version history, you can easily collaborate with others, revert to a previous version if necessary, and track changes to your files.
