# Running Favvy

Edit Access Required

Anyone with Edit access to a file can run a plugin in that file, anyone who only has View permissions won't be able to run any plugins in that file.

Browser Support

Due to browser compatibility issues, Favvy isn't supported in Safari. Please run the plugin in another browser (like Chrome (opens new window)) or the Figma Desktop App (opens new window) instead.

Once you've installed the Favvy Figma plugin, you can switch back into any Figma project file, then follow the steps below.

  1. Right-click anywhere on your Figma project canvas
  2. Hover your mouse over Plugins ▶
  3. Hover your mouse over Saved plugins ▶
  4. Click on the Favvy plugin

# Quickly re-running the plugin

After you've run the Favvy plugin once in a Figma file, you'll be able to quickly re-launch it by clicking the Favvy icon in the right-hand side Figma column (under the "Plugin" subheading).

# Upgrading to a Pro account

After trying out all the Pro features of Favvy 5 times, you can optionally upgrade to continue using all the extra features that are only available in the Pro version; or if you're a casual user, you can continue using the Free version forever.

Simply click on the Upgrade Now button at the bottom of the Figma plugin window (while it's running) and paste in your Pro key, then click the Unlock button.
