Posting a new Figma comment from the Commentful plugin

To post a new comment, you can either leave a comment pin normally (using the native Comment feature in Figma), or you can click on the Plus icon button next to any status column under the Figma Comments tab in the Commentful plugin.

Once you’ve clicked the Plus button, you’ll need to click on a single Figma layer, which will automatically attach the new Figma comment to that exact layer, making it easier to attach the comment to the layer (if its visual position moves around later, etc).

You will also be able to add metadata to your new Figma comment, like a title for the comment, custom tags, a custom status, due date and assignee.

Once you’ve selected the Figa layer and added your metadata, you can use the built-in markdown editor to write your new comment, then click the Post New Figma Comment button to post your new Figma comment.

After your new comment has been posted from the plugin, it will show up in both the native Figma comment pin and also be loaded into the Commentful plugin (via the Figma API), so anyone who isn’t using the Commentful plugin will still be able to see it in the Figma file (when the Figma Comments view is active).
Figma comments support markdown syntax, so to make this easier, Commentful includes a visual markdown editor to make it easier for you to add bold/italics or links.

Replying to Figma comment threads from the Commentful plugin

After the your comment reply has been posted from the plugin, it will show up in both the native Figma comment pin and also be loaded into the Commentful plugin (via the Figma API), so anyone who isn’t using the Commentful plugin will still be able to see it in the Figma file (when the Figma Comments view is active).
