How to create and use text styles in Figma
A step by step tutorial on setting up text styles in Figma.
Step One: Create your Styles
In Figma, create your typographic styles.
Step Two: Select text & click on Style
Select the typographic style that you wish to convert into a Text Style and subsequently navigate to Style under the fill section.
Step Three: Create a new style
Press the + button in the modal that appears to create a new style.
Step Four: Name & select Create Style
In the modal that appears, type in the name of the text style that you wish to create and subsequently press Create Style.
Step Five: Use the Style
The text style should now appear under Text Styles.
If you select that text style it will change your selected text to that style.
If at any moment you want to edit the style, remove, delete or detach it, follow one of the tutorials linked below.
Unfortunately Figma does not yet attach Colors, Stroke or effects to text styles.
Keep this in mind when creating complex typographic styles. We strongly recommend that you maintain a typographic style area that can be used a master typographic style guide.
