Setting up DSM

Article Summary

This guide references the new DSM. Built on customer feedback, the new DSM offers a completely redesigned experience. Learn more about why we made the new DSM.

There are two pieces to DSM—the documentation website and the DSM Sketch integration (available via the Craft plugin). In this guide, you'll learn both.

Accessing DSM on the web

To access your DSM documentation site:

  • InVision V6: Sign in to InVision and, in the top navigation bar, click DSM.
  • InVision V7: Sign in to InVision and, on the left sidebar, click the (more) menu and select Design Systems.

This site is where you can view all your design systems, manage your DSM organization, and invite others to collaborate.

In the center of the page, you'll notice a list of all your available design systems. To open a design system, click its thumbnail tile.invision-new-dsm-accessing-design-systems.jpg


Setting up DSM in Sketch

The DSM Sketch integration allows you to connect your Sketch files to DSM. To set up the DSM Sketch integration, download and install the Craft plugin for Sketch.

Open Sketch and, In the Sketch menu, click Plugins > Design System Manager > Toggle Side Panel.

If you skip this step, DSM won’t be accessible in Sketch.

The DSM Sketch plugin panel will appear directly above the left-hand layers list in Sketch. To begin using the integration, click the DSM icon ().
