2.1 Pages

Pages in Figma represent an additional layer of organization. Let’s say, for example, that you want to keep each stage of a project separate—perhaps you’ll have wireframing in one place, pattern libraries in another, and the final product in a separate place as well. “Pages” is the right tool for the job.

2.1 Pages

Pages in Figma represent an additional layer of organization. So let's say that you want to keep each stage of your work separate. Let's say you want the wireframing to be kept separate in one place, and maybe a pattern library in another place, and your final product in another place. Well, Pages is the right tool for the job. Pages is actually a recent addition to Figma. They weren't implemented when we made the introduction course. But they've been recently made public, and they're really simple to use. Basically, you start in a new project, you start with a single page. And you can access the pages right here in the Layers panel at the very top. With Pages, you can basically by right-clicking duplicate one, rename it, or create a new page. You can also create a new page by clicking this little button. So Pages, as I was saying at the beginning, basically allow you to organize your work. So you can have a frame with some content in the first page, and you can have another frame with a different type of content in the secondary page. And then you can switch between pages really simply by choosing the one that you want from this list. Before this was implemented, you basically had all of your frames, all of your contents in the same place, in the one infinite canvas. And you could position them to maybe separate them. Maybe add a version on the top. And maybe on the bottom, you would create a different version of your work, and you could organize them like that. But you just were left with this big collection of frames. But now with Pages, it's much simpler to organize them. So let's say for example that on page one you, put the desktop version of your website. On page two, you put the tablet versions. On page three, you put the mobile phone, or the smartphone versions. So when we're talking about a large number of frames, let's say ten frames each, you would have 30 frames. If you don't use Pages, you would have just 30 frames laying around there on the calendars. But with Pages, you can have, ten, ten, and ten. They're neatly organized. You know exactly what each page is doing, and it's much easier for you to organize and find your information like that. So that's a very quick look at Pages. Now, in the next lesson, we're gonna talk about keyboard shortcuts. Figma has some great ones that I recently added, and it just makes your work flow a lot faster. And we're gonna have a look at those in the next lesson. See you there.
