Importing from Figma

There are a variety of ways to get your Figma data into Fable. The easiest way is to use the Figma Plugin.

  1. Run the Fable plugin in Figma.
  2. Select layers or frames on your Figma project
  3. Click the “Copy” button on the Fable plugin.
  4. Open a project in Fable and paste ⌘V.

To learn about other ways to bring your Figma files into Fable and supported Figma features, refer to the Fable and Figma article.

Importing from Illustrator

You can bring Illustrator layers into Fable by simply copy and pasting into Fable.

  1. Select layers on Illustrator
  2. Copy the layers ⌘C
  3. Open a Fable project and paste ⌘V

Illustrator layers will be pasted as native custom shapes on Fable, enabling you to alter and/or animate any part of your shapes.

If you're using raster effects on Illustrator, we recommend exporting your Illustrator file as an image before bringing it into Fable.

Importing from Photoshop

Fable support PSD formats. You can simply drag and drop your PSD file into the Editor.

Fable imports each layer on your PSD as a separate image layer.
