How To Text Wrap In Figma

When working on a design project, having the capability to wrap text is an essential function. But how can one achieve this in Figma, one of today’s most popular digital design tools? This article will walk you through the steps for text wrapping in Figma.

Figma, unlike other design tools such as Adobe Illustrator or Sketch, does not have a built-in feature for text wrapping. However, you can emulate this functionality by using the plugin FigWrap.

Installing FigWrap

To begin with, you’ll need to install the FigWrap plugin. Follow the steps below:

  1. From your Figma dashboard, navigate to the ‘Community’ section.
  2. Click on the ‘Plugins’ tab.
  3. Search for ‘FigWrap’ in the search bar.
  4. Click ‘Install’ on the FigWrap plugin.

Using FigWrap

Once you have installed FigWrap, you can now wrap text around an object. Here’s how:

  1. Create a text layer and an object layer that you want the text to wrap around. The text layer should be larger than the object.
  2. Select both layers by clicking and dragging your cursor over them.
  3. Run the FigWrap plugin. The text should now wrap around the object.
// Sample Figma code for selecting layers
const layers = figma.currentPage.selection;
if (layers.length === 0) {
  figma.closePlugin("No layers selected. Please select a layer and run the plugin again.");


There you have it! Even though Figma does not inherently support text wrapping, we can still achieve this functionality by using a handy plugin called FigWrap. This guide should help you navigate through the process of installing and using FigWrap to wrap text around objects in Figma, giving you more flexibility and control over your design projects.

Enjoy designing and remember not to limit your creativity!
