Creating Your Library

For a quick visual walkthrough of getting your library into DSM, check out the DSM Learn Hub.

Importing a Craft library

Rather than rebuilding an existing library, you can import a Craft Library. To import a library:

  1. In Sketch, click the DSM icon (dsm-plugin-icon.png), or use the shortcut Command + L.
  2. Select the drop-down menu at the top left.
  3. Hover over Import and select Craft Library.
  4. Select your library and click Import. If you have trouble locating your library, we suggest searching your machine for .library files.

If you’d like to import your library from, please email [email protected].

Creating a new library

To create a new library:

  1. Access the DSM web view.
  2. Click Create a new library. If you've already created a library and you want to make another one, navigate to the top right of the page and click New library.
  3. Name your library. If you choose, you can also upload a thumbnail image and enter a description.
    If you're on DSM Enterprise, you'll notice an option to set the library permissions to Anyone at [your team] can view or People Invited. If you're on DSM Free, you won't see this option.
  4. Click Create.

You can now continue to build your library with the Craft Manager DSM tool.


It's also possible to duplicate a library. To learn more, check out this article: How do I duplicate a Design System Manager (DSM) library?

Internet search engines won't index DSM libraries on the web unless your library permissions are set to Public. To learn more about library permissions, check out this article: Roles and Permissions in DSM
