View Community files
Every Community file will have a resource page. This lets you view some relevant information about the file. Including the file name, who the Publisher is, and a description of the file.
Publishers can choose whether the preview on the file page is a file or prototype. You can interact with the file or prototype as you would any regular embed.
If the file is a remix, or another member has remixed the file, you'll see a preview of these other Community files here too.
Tip! If there are more than three remixes of a file, click See all to view all remixes on a dedicated page. Or, click Hide remixes to hide them from the file page.
There are a few ways you can interact with file pages:
- Click the heart icon to Like the Community file.

To use a file from the Community, you can duplicate it. Duplicates are new files that are separate from the original.

(Community)at the end of the file name.

Figma encourages Community members to share and iterate on Community files.
Members can duplicate a Community file, add their own touch, then publish it to the Community. We call these files remixes.
Figma tracks every time someone duplicates a file from the Community. This allows Figma to track remixes and create better feedback loops for creators.
When you publish a remix of a Community file, Figma will:
- Add your file to the Remixes section of the page of the original Community file.
- Add a link to the original Community file in the Remix of section of the resource page.
Publishing files to the Community is currently in beta. Only members of the Figma Community beta can publish files to the Community.
