Article summary

With Craft Prototype, it's possible to link artboards that exist on separate pages in the same Sketch file. This is particularly helpful if you need to link from a layer within a master symbol on a symbols page.

Note: To learn more about creating hotspots specifically on symbol layers, check out this article: In Craft Prototype, can I create a hotspot on a symbol layer?

To link artboards on separate pages:

  1. In your Sketch file, select a group or layer.
  2. To start an interaction, use the keyboard shortcut K.
  3. At the top of the page, click Artboard.
  4. In the first drop-down, select Link to a screen or Link as Overlay.
  5. In the second drop-down, select the destination artboard.
  6. In the third drop-down, select a Gesture.
  7. If appropriate for your design, select the Maintain scroll position after click checkbox.
  8. Click Add Link.

When the destination artboard is on a separate page, you'll see a small blue arrow icon (blue-arrow-icon.png) indicating the group or layer that you are linking from. If the originating and destination artboards are on the same page, you'll instead notice a blue line connecting the two.
