Sync Design Changes

Sync design changes help you to avoid switching back to Figma designs repeatedly and creating a new app in DhiWise again to bring all your new design changes. It helps to save a lot of time in a single click and helps you get your modified design right here all the way from the Figma file. No need to switch to the design file for it, we have it covered all; right here.


Following are some scenarios to be kept in mind while Figma sync.

  • Before doing a Figma sync or Figma page sync, if you’ve applied any Styles from DhiWise; then all those styles will be applied even after the sync.
  • If you’ve created Mixin and applied it to the components before Figma sync or Figma page sync on DhiWise, then it will be applied even after the sync.
  • If you’ve created a Component before Figma sync/Figma page sync with DhiWise, then your changes will still prevail even after sync. To overwrite them, detach your component and resync your Figma.

Sync design changes don't work with templates.
