How to get your issue resolved faster

When you run into an issue building a plugin, you will get a better & faster answer if you provide more information.

Include the error message

❌ Bad example: "I tried to call node.appendChild, but it ran into an error. What can I do?"

✅ Good example: "I tried to call node.appendChild, but I got an error message 'Cannot move node. Node is an internal, readonly-only node'. I don't understand this error -- what does it mean for a node to be internal?"

Show the code that didn't do what you expected

❌ Bad example: "Is creating boolean operations with plugins broken? I can't see anything after creating one."

✅ Good example: "I'm having difficulties with using figma.createBooleanOperation(). I expected the following to be the equivalent of selecting a rectangle and circle, and unioning them, but instead I see nothing

const node = figma.createBooleanOperation()

Am I doing something wrong?"

Provide code and a series of reproducible steps

❌ Bad example: "This error seems to come from internal Figma code, can you fix it?"

✅ Good example: "When I use figma.someAPI, I get an error which I suspect is a bug. Here is the code that I am currently running [attached zip]. To reproduce, open a file containing an image, select the image, run the plugin, and click on the "analyze" button."
