[Updated] Figma down or not working & throwing 'Server error (504)' or 'Temporary outage (503)' messages, issue under investigation

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on June 7, 2022) follows:

Layout and graphic design professionals have multiple alternatives to work with. One of the most popular software applications in this segment is Figma.

Like other similar software applications, Figma is a vector graphics editor. However, it claims to be a tool that you can primarily use through a web browser.

The tool also offers some additional offline features. However, its great advantage lies in its easy access through a web browser.

The fact that Figma is primarily an online tool means that its servers must always be running properly. A server crash will cause it to be totally inaccessible.

Currently, that is exactly what is happening, as Figma servers are down or not working.

Figma servers down, users getting ‘Server error (504)’ or ‘Temporary outage (503)’ messages

According to multiple reports, the tool is currently inaccessible. Users just get ‘Server error (504)’ or ‘Temporary outage (503)’ messages due to server downtime.

Figma being down reminded me of a time I went for a workation without a laptop.

People tweeting Figma down reminds me of the time when kids used to come out to play whenever there was a power cut. Good ol’ days.

The amount you love a tool is directly correlated with how frustrated you are that it’s down. Good luck, operations team at @figma, please bring it back soon!
