How To Fix Position Figma

Figma is a popular software among design professionals worldwide, known for its robust and user-friendly features that help create captivating UI and UX designs. This blog post aims to assist you in fixing object positions in your Figma designs.

In Figma, you can fix the position of an object relative to the frame using the ‘Fix position when scrolling’ feature. This is particularly useful when you want a certain object to stay in place while the other contents of your design scroll.

Steps to Fix Position in Figma

Follow the simple steps provided below:

  1. Open your Figma project and select the frame that contains the object you want to fix.
  2. Select the object or layer you want to fix. This can be a single object or a group of objects.
  3. On the right panel, look for the ‘Constraints’ section. This section allows you to control how objects resize and reposition as their parent frame changes.
  4. Below the ‘Constraints’ section, you’ll see a checkbox labeled ‘Fix position when scrolling’. Check this box. Your object will now remain fixed when you scroll within the frame.

How to Verify

To verify that your object is fixed:

  1. Go to the prototyping mode by clicking on the ‘Show Prototype Settings’ in the top-right corner of your design screen.
  2. In the prototype mode, select the frame that contains your fixed object.
  3. On the right-hand panel, under ‘Overflow Behavior’, select ‘Vertical scrolling’ or ‘Horizontal scrolling’ depending on your design.
  4. Press Ctrl + P to open the presentation view and try scrolling within your frame. Your object should stay in its place while other elements scroll.

Please note that fixed objects only work in frames with scrolling enabled. Frames without scrolling will not show the fixed object effect.


Fixing object positions in Figma can greatly enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your design. We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process. Happy designing!
