Auto Fix and Fix Misaligned Frames can be used to further improve the quality of your code with our algorithms, but may result in unexpected results.

We recommend setting Auto Fix to true and Fix Misaligned Frames to false by default, and you can find more information on what setting best suits your need here

Converting large frames

Converting large frames uses alot of RAM, and may cause figma to hang or crash

  1. If you are converting a large frame, please be patient.
  2. Try to avoid clicking on large frames while moving around the document.

Conversion may take time

After clicking on a frame, the conversion process may take some time.

As long as the spinner is spinning, the conversion is still processing If the spinner disappears, and the code does not appear, FireJet may have encountered an issue, and you can report it to us in our discord for us to debug.
