🎉 We've rebuilt the Figma integration from the ground up to fix critical performance issues. Timeouts were the most common issue that a lot of teams were running into—now this should be fixed once and for all! 

You can learn how to install the new Figma plugin and export your frames here: https://support.zeplin.io/en/articles/1273189-exporting-designs-from-figma

Timeout issues on the older version

Zeplin was using Figma's API to export data and images from frames and layers. If you're exporting multiple frames at once (especially large, complex ones) from the older version, you might run into timeout issues such as “Reading file from Figma timed out”, “Exporting images from Figma timed out” or “The request timed out”.

If you still use an older version of the Zeplin desktop app, here are some suggestions:

  • Export fewer frames at a time
  • Export nested frames separately
  • Reduce the number of exportable layers, especially large or complex ones

If none of these solve the issue, try copying the frame to a new Figma file and try exporting it from there. Hope these help!
