Thanks a lot!
This gives thunkable a huge competitive advantage vs adalo and bravo
You made me go back to thunkable ^^


Done with what? That imports the Figma file. But do the objects I’ve created in Figma become actual components in Thunkable? Or is it just a visual template/grid that I can use to then drag components on top of?

Oh… i totally forgot to mention.

Tick android 1 and add as screen

I will add it.



I Guess it is a visual template…i mean more of that… but components like Place Images and text which are supported in thunkable could be edited with the blocks figma section.


Hi, what do you mean with ‘Tick Android 1’? Where can I find that?

Hi all,

I add my figma desing on new UI. When I select the screen to add the thunkable from the asset menu, I couldn’t do anything on the screen. There is a too much delay. Did u get it? And how to delete figma file from the asset?


I tried importing Figma file as a screen in Thunkable but the result was not at all usable. I did not find any option to remove it from asset list.


It is explained in the tutorial.

Sorry for the late reply

Great question @tatiang - for any element or vector that you import from Figma you can choose in Thunkable which component to assign it to with the following dialog:


Even without going through this step the blocks section for each imported component will allow you do things like event handling that you can do with our built-in UI components:

@lukas_b_98knm - this is just referring to the frame size you should use in Figma. My preference is to use a frame that’s the same size as the phone screen in Thunkable, we can handle all the scaling from there.


Can you share your Figma file @cihan please? It’s hard to say what’s happening here without seeing the file structure

I figured this myself but I had what I can refer to as click sensitivity issue. When you have a rectangle inside another it becomes hard, at least for me, to select one of them in Thunkable designer. Is this something you encountered?

I know this is a side issue but I think it’s an important one for maybe a separate topic or bug report. Selecting one component when two or more components are overlapped is much harder than I expect each time. It seems like the tolerance for where you click to select a component might be too much. So when I have the top-left point of my mouse cursor on top of a component that is behind another, it doesn’t always select it; it often selects the component in front even though my cursor doesn’t seem to be touching it. I know, hard to picture!
