How To Import Pdf To Figma

Figma is an excellent tool for UI/UX designers, offering a broad range of features to enhance your design workflow. However, importing a PDF file to Figma may not be as straightforward as you think. Don’t worry, though! In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps to successfully import a PDF file into Figma.

Step 1: Convert your PDF to SVG

To import a PDF into Figma, the first thing we need to do is convert the PDF to an SVG file. Figma doesn’t support direct PDF import, but it does support SVG. There are many online tools available that you can use to convert your PDF files to SVG. Some of them include Zamzar, Convertio, and Online-Convert.

Step 2: Import the SVG to Figma

After converting your PDF to an SVG file, it’s time to import it into Figma. Here’s how you do it:

  • Open your Figma desktop app or navigate to in your web browser.
  • Open the file where you want to import your SVG.
  • Go to the menu bar, click on ‘File’, then select ‘Import…’
  • Navigate to your saved SVG file and click ‘Open’.

Voilà! Your SVG file should now be visible in your Figma file.

Step 3: Edit your imported SVG

After importing the SVG into Figma, you can now adjust and edit it as you wish. Remember, Figma treats each layer of your SVG as an individual element, so you have the freedom to customize each part of your design.


And there you have it! That’s how you import a PDF into Figma. While it might seem like a roundabout way, it’s a relatively straightforward process once you get the hang of it. Remember: always save your files in different formats to ensure maximum compatibility with various platforms. Happy designing!
