Export Assets in Framer Web
This is currently a deal breaker. Tons of devs don't have or want Framer desktop app and therefore would make it very hard for my team to use this tool in actual production. Please include the export of assets in Framer Web.
Dark/Light mode for code Editor only
Please allow us to select dark mode for the code editor without it being attached to the canvas mode. I like light mode for the canvas, but can't stand it for the code editor.
Paste in Place (CMD+Shift+V)
Please add the ability to paste something into place. This is a huge timesaver as it minimizes traversal requirements. Here's a common scenario: I'm copying a couple of Frames from on area of the canvas (CMD+C), pan to another area and hit paste (CMD+V). The elements get pasted next to the initially copied ones, the canvas jumps back to where the elements are pasted. It would be fantastic to hit CMD+Shift+V instead and paste those layers right into the center of where I'm currently at. This has been a Sketch feature forever and Figma also has it. Very intuitive.
Component states + magic motion
1. allow design components to have multiple states 2. allow using magic motion to transition between them. This should work independently from the parent component, which opens up a ton of microinteraction possibilities. Here is an example of the same thing in proto.io: https://support.proto.io/hc/en-us/articles/229637268-Creating-an-animated-button-using-States
Ability to use %, em, ch, vw or similar units for dimensions.
The title is pretty self explanatory. Very rarely (if ever) the size of components is nowadays explicitly expressed in pixels (or points), but rather it depends on the context (CSS equivalents of %, vw, vh, for example) or content (ch). It would be great if we could express units in such ways (using 1fr for stack is a nice step).
Commenting in Framer Desktop
I use red texts around my mockups when discussing with team. Because this feature available only in Web version. Figma made it perfectly. Desktop and Web should have similar features. At least this one because we need it all the time during design process.
Export as Gif
It would be VERY useful to export animations and prototypes as gifs, both for client observation and for presentations for websites like dribbble, or even simple gifs on client websites
Custom Font Support
Including custom fonts within your Framer project can be a bit cumbersome. You can achieve this using the Font Files package which allows you to consistently render typefaces across preview devices but the process can be a bit cumbersome. Ideally we'd like this to be a first-class feature within Framer. How would you envision this to be? From my perspective, I'd love to be able to upload a local typeface from my machine to my Framer project and have the font family visible within the Typeface select in the properties panel, as well it being available across every preview device. I'd also like to be able to link to a webfont via a CDN.
Design Tokens / Styles (Text, spacing, etc)
The ability to express and consume design tokens within Framer. We can already do this with shared colours, but this concept extends beyond this, including but not limited to: - Text styles/tokens - Spacing/layout tokens - Default colours/sizing for newly created components - Borders We can then leverage the availability of these tokens to better integrate design systems with Framer. By using the design system as the single source of truth, ideally we'd like to be able to automatically import these tokens into projects and be able to handoff any proposed changes to these tokens within Framer. What other tokens are we missing here? It would be a great to get an insight into what you currently express via tokens within your design system. Feel free to leave a comment!
