What are the limitations of the free version figma?

What are the limitations of the free version figma?

Written, for example, 3 projects, but how? As I understand I can create any number of new projects or during operation are provided with this limitation and will, so that the need or download projects to your computer (if at all possible in the figma is?) or buy a paid subscription, so as not to accumulate a huge number of accounts and not lose the necessary projects because of this.

Thank you all for the answers

Solution
1. You can create unlimited number of layouts, the "projects" can create only 3.

The project is similar to the category that contains the layouts to the project, you can issue a maximum of 2 editing access.

2. No, all layouts are saved for life and their backups are not required.

All restriction free pygmy can be found here: https://www.figma.com/pricing/

From the core:
• A maximum of 2 editor
• 30 days to store the history layout
• No team component library
• No control over the transmission links and no private projects.

To pay for Figma only when working on a project team.
That means there is no private projects? It turns out that each developer can see my project and if he likes what I do. he can drag it yourself? - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 08:48
figma for me as a designer it turns out in fact works without any restrictions so, if I work alone? and still interested in your opinion at the expense of the program which is most suitable to work on real projects with clients or figma xd. He used a long time photoshop, but realized that it's time to change)))) it is Clear that to each his own etc, but that is most often used and what should we choose? Thank you for answers not the first time help)))) - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 08:51
@Rebeka_Schulissomething that is. What you want, and use. I chose the Figma. After Figma Sketch that is more like the industry standard.

PS a Bunch of projects XD also met. So keep it on PC if I have to suddenly work there. - tanner commented on March 19th 20 at 08:54
@tannerstill on some software there is more demand and if there are projects in it, that will be a plus, and some of them develop faster and have those functions, which have no other product. Same xd was a few years ago very raw and when I tried to use it, then sorry, but after a while it became a good product. Now use it, but then I just spent the time. I want to avoid such situations, why and ask people's opinions, but in this case we are interested in the opinion of a certain designer, maybe not just one time I answered and received a "Noteworthy decision"))) - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 08:57
@Rebeka_Schulis, the situation is constantly changing. Today one, tomorrow another. But in the end, all these editors are in fact one and the same. Just with a number of distinctive buns. So qualification you will not lose. - tanner commented on March 19th 20 at 09:00
@tanner, That's understandable, but as I said, the buns are different. Xd and figma is the same, but team work is more developed in the figma in a while xd with my duplicate items can not but rejoice - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 09:03
@Rebeka_Schulis, that's it. And then you suddenly have to work in Sketch, so don't bother especially. Use The Figma :)) - tanner commented on March 19th 20 at 09:06
@Rebeka_Schulis, the answer could not immediately. I'm using a Figma as I am sure any programmer will be able to make up my layout as it is drawn, and this is one big reason - a handy tool for layout, which is not required to explore and understand any programmer.

Freelancing with Figma I have also had no problems, especially with the very handy feature of the presentation of the prototype, I have long rejected the idea of dumping the project as a PNG, and customers are happy about that.

Regarding your first question - no, your project can't see everything, just if your link will merge the left man, he will have access to view and one click to copy the layout itself. But I have links to the sources, in principle, don't give nobody) - martina17 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:09
@martina17, Thanks for the reply. Another question. If I understand correctly, the figma that file which is downloaded is in fact just a link to the layout and if I want to make animation in some new-fangled programme tipo after effects for your website, then working in the figma I just can't do? and if I use adobe xd, then such problems I won't have? - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 09:12
@Rebeka_Schulis, all you need to animate the interface is the elements in the vector to move elements in After Effects, you only will need to copy and paste SVG files, and it can be done as a whole package.

But I would not hurry to ascribe the pros for Adobe XD, because XD might make exports to AF, but can't do in other programs to animate, unlike Figma.

Now Figma is integrated with Haiku, Principle and Protopie and to make the animation much easier. - martina17 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:15
@martina17, and about the links tell me. You get just show the prototype to people in the figma and all? Not had a problem finding someone to work merged, or if I buy the paid version, it will protect me from this? Free can we to combat such theft?

And tell me how often figma has been used in large projects? Maybe it was experience? Just recently the Studio was very uncomfortable so I used a figma, but the Studio while this was found one))) I just still doubt it TC xd all from adobe and it is unlikely to let the market. They probably do everything to be able to fully conquer this market and all the cool stuff will come from them. The latest release even almost all bugs fixed))) only 2 losses compared to last using the program. It's certainly a bit worse than the figma, but there's more pieces as I found it useful really works even meshing while crewboat even))) - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 09:18
@Rebeka_Schuliswill tell you as someone who works in the Figma in Adobe XD, for me, the only argument in favor of the Adobe XD - the animation, no more pros I not identified. It is not flexible, difficult and terribly uncomfortable. But Figma is already developing its own tool to animate, so here, this advantage will soon disappear. A Figma recently finally conquered the market, offering companies plan Figma Organization that provides complete control over the designers and their models.

Open jobs at HH, there are almost only a Sketch and Figma, even Photoshop already is rarely used for interfaces.

Well, again, about large projects. Now, while in Moscow, not the third face with Figma, yet all captivating teamwork and cross-platform (than even Adobe XD can't boast).

But with the links no protection whatsoever to advise with no one inside prototypes of the project can not get, and for my practice, one never I did not steal the layout. And even if it was stolen, with the same success can be decorated and laid out version of the layout. - martina17 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:21
@martina17, how long have you used xd? he just only with the latest updates began to delight in the work, and there used to be some bugs))) as reactor brackets from Adobe. they evidently don't want to cut free products))) - Rebeka_Schulis commented on March 19th 20 at 09:24
@Rebeka_Schulisuse on a daily basis, although the Figma of course more. Adobe XD is conveniently easy to show the animation when it must be done quickly, within the same meeting.

Generally, with Adobe XD met six years ago. - martina17 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:27
That means the history is kept for 30 days? After 30 days, you can export the layout? - blake.Schamberger commented on March 19th 20 at 09:30
@blake.Schamberger, you can go into the history of the layout and see all the action for 30 days and revert to snapshot. - martina17 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:33

Solution
Amendment projects, you can create an infinite number, and the project is only 3 subcategories. For example I have a project "Work", there are 3 categories - "Ongoing", "Done", "drafts". There is a project "Blank", "Personal", "Test" etc. All this affects the organization of the files, rather on convenience. I use the free version and everything is OK. Figma the best editor!
