Curving text in your Figma designs can add a unique and dynamic flair.
Here's a simple and educational guide on how to curve text in Figma using the "Arc" plugin.
Step 1: Select Your Text Layer
First, open your Figma file and select the text layer you wish to curve. This can be any piece of text in your design.
Step 2: Install the Arc Plugin
At the top of the Figma window, click the Resources tab and from the dropdown make sure to click the Plugins tab.
In the Plugins menu, search for the "Arc" plugin and click run to install it.
Step 3: Use the Arc Plugin
With the Arc plugin now installed, right click on a text element and from the menu click on Plugins and select the Arc plugin.
The Arc plugin interface will open and you'll see a slider called 'bend strength'. This slider allows you to adjust the curvature of your text. Slide it left or right to curve the text to your desired shape.
The great thing about this plugin is that it gives you real-time feedback, so you can see how your text looks as you adjust the curve.
Step 4: Applying the Curve
After you're satisfied with the curvature of your text, click "Apply." This action will finalize the curve effect on your text.
