A linked file is a Figma file that has been imported into Supernova to be used as a source for your design system.
Linked Files appear under the Figma tab, along with the time Supernova last checked for updates, and the last fetched version that was imported.
If you selected automatic updates, Supernova will check for changes periodically (hourly) and update the design system automatically.
If you selected manual updates, you must click
Get updates to fetch the latest changes.
In the Figma tab, click
+ Link New File
Enter the URL of the file you would like to link

If your design system is divided into multiple Figma files or libraries, they can also be imported into Supernova. Updates for these files can be fetched individually by file, or all at once.
To link another Figma file, follow the same process as above.
To unlink a Figma file and remove all related tokens from Supernova:
In Linked Figma files, find the file you would like to unlink
In the context menu, click
Type "UNLINK" to confirm, and click
In the case that a Figma file becomes unlinked, such as the file was deleted or the user who gave access to the file was revoked in Figma, you have the option to relink the file.
In Linked Figma files, a file that is missing will show a
Relink file button
Relink file to provide a new URL for this file
