Are Figma's components terrible (or is it me)?

over 4 years ago from , UX designer

Problems I keep encountering:

  1. Editing a big component takes forever because you always have to click into it and drag-selection is impossible.

  2. Overriding a component takes forever because you have to click into it to locate the element you want to override.

  3. Organizing components is confusing: they don't go to a centralized place at creation but remain where ever you created them.

  4. If you delete a master component and recreate it, it will show up exactly where it was first created. Apparently that's forever.

  5. Nesting components doesn't appear to work reliably.

Am I doing something wrong? Why isn't Figma copying Sketch's symbol model, which is logical and easy?
