Easily find your instances with the Figma “Instance Finder” plugin

Introduction

When working on complex Figma projects, it's important to have effective tools to help you stay organized and work faster. The Figma Instance Finder plugin is a handy tool for anyone looking to save time by quickly finding the instances they're looking for.

You can select the instance on which the search will be based, search the entire document, on a specific page or frame, see the search results and select them in batches or individually, navigate from one result to another using the arrows at the bottom right.

How to use it

SELECT INSTANCE

You can start the default search directly across the entire document. It is important to note that it is possible to perform this search either from the file, from the current page or simply on the selected frame.

SEARCH OPTIONS

By default, you can search the entire document. It is also possible to limit this search to a specific file, page or frame. It's important to note that you have the option to personalize your search by choosing the workspace that works best for you.

SEARCH RESULTS

Once you have selected the instance and the appropriate search options, you will see all matching instances displayed. You can then select instances in batches or individually. This feature is handy but only available when you search the entire file. It is also possible to navigate between the results using the arrows at the bottom right.

Conclusion

In summary, the Figma Instance Finder plugin is an essential tool for all Figma users looking to optimize their workflow. It allows you to quickly and efficiently find component instances in a document, thanks to its advanced search features.
