How do I get started with file syncing?


If you're specifically looking for instructions on setting up Craft Manager and the Craft tool suite for Sketch or Photoshop, check this article instead: Using Craft by InVision.

Craft Sync lets you sync your artboards from Sketch or Photoshop to InVision with just a few clicks.

How syncing works

Within Sketch or Photoshop, design artboards as normal. Then, use Craft Sync to publish your prototype designs to InVision.

Syncing prototypes from Sketch

To sync a prototype from Sketch:

  1. Select the artboard/s you want to sync.
    To publish all artboards on the Sketch page, ensure that you have no artboards selected before proceeding to step 2.
  2. In the panel on the right side of the workspace, click the Craft Sync icon (craft-sync-icon-in-sketch.png), which will prompt the Craft Manager dialog to open.
  3. In the Craft Manager dialog, click the Select or create a prototype field, enter a name to select the prototype you want or click the Create prototype button, and select the device type from the drop-down list.
  4. If you’re creating a new prototype, click the blue Publish button. If you’re syncing changes to a previously created prototype, click the blue Update button.
    You will then see the Prototypes tab, where you can view the publishing progress indicator.

Syncing prototypes from Photoshop

To sync a prototype from Photoshop:

  1. Select the artboard/s you want to sync.
  2. In the panels on the right side (by default) of the workspace, click the Sync icon (craft-sync-icon-in-photoshop.png).
    The location of the Sync icon may vary, depending on how you have arranged your Photoshop panels.
  3. In the Sync dialog, click the drop-down list to create or select the prototype you want to sync to, and select either All artboards in document or Only selected artboards.
  4. Click the blue Sync to InVision button.


Craft Sync allows you to quickly update your designs to InVision from within Sketch.Collaborators who don't use Craft Sync can still access prototypes from the prototype page on the web.

Some things to note

  • You can delete and archive prototypes in only.
  • You can add PNGs, JPGs, and GIFs to the Screens folder.
  • You can only create custom subfolders in the Assets folder.
  • We use the exact images that are uploaded and do not compress on our end. For large prototypes and screens, we recommend compressing images a bit to reduce overall download size.
