Layer position issues when importing from Figma


I’m having issues that the layer position is scattered in principle when importing files from Figma
I tried to search if someone have similar issues yet can’t find the resource to self-service : (
Please let me know if there’s any tricks to fix it, thank you!


  • Principle Version: Both 5 & 6.3
  • macOS Version: 11.2.1
  • Figma Version: 95.8

Thanks for reporting this - could you share a link to a figma file that has this problem, so I can get to work on a fix? Doesn’t have to be that file, you could even make a little file with one or two layers that has the problem.

Thanks for reply Daniel!

Attached the file here

Feel free to reach me anything need me to provide, thank you!

@lynn I need the figma file, not the .prd, in order to figure out the problem.

Had the same problem.
Managed to replicate the problem with nested frame using auto-layout.

Here’s a file

it should show and offset between the box position and the box content.

@Fred_F Thanks Fred, you’re the first and only person to provide a figma file! I can finally get to work on a fix. Thank you!

You welcome. Let me know if you need anything else.
It’s prototyping time at the studio, thus i might be ale to provide files in a relatively short amount of time.

We’ve identified the issue and are working with Figma on a fix!

Principle 6.6 fixes this
