Add a comment

Add a comment to a pinned location or region on the canvas. Figma will attach your comment to frames when you pin a comment or select a region inside a top-level frame, component, or group. If those frames are moved around the canvas, their comments move with them. Comments won't attach to any nested frames, components, groups, or other layers.
