You can save a local copy of a file in the .fig (Figma design) or .jam (FigJam) formats. This is useful if you want to duplicate files between Figma accounts or teams, or if you want to manually back up your files.
Figma doesn't include any version history or comments when you save a local copy of a file. When you reimport this file, Figma treats this like a new file and it won't be connected to the original. Any components in the imported file will become new main components. Instances in the imported file will connect to the new main components and will not receive updates from components in the original file.
Note: The .fig and .jam file formats are proprietary and may change in the future. We recommend against using any third-party tools that ask for .fig or .jam files because they may not be able to properly read these files. If you're building a third-party tool, we recommend accessing files and their contents through one of .
