Common Issues

Groups & Absolute Positioning

In Figma, groups are used to quickly design User Interface layouts. Although they are convenient to use, translating them into quality code can be difficult, as they behave very differently from how CSS layout usually works. In AutoHTML, groups are translated by adding an "inset: 0" property to the CSS and positioning children absolutely. While this often creates a visually similar appearance to the design, it is usually not what developers desire. To avoid this, try reorganizing the design to use Auto Layout and, if absolute positioning makes sense, use Constraints.

Groups can negatively impact interactive areas as they add an invisible layer covering the parent element. It is advisable to always avoid using groups.
