How do you say 'she had just left' - 'elle venait de partir'or 'elle était venue de partir'

'She had left' suggests the pluperfect, but it's hard to apply the construction for ’just left'

This relates to:
Venir de + infinitive = To have just done (Le Passé Proche) -

Bonjour Paula !

To say "she had just left" you would use L'Imparfait:
"Elle venait de partir".

À bientôt !
