How can I preview my prototype with Craft Player?

Once you've brought your design to life with Craft Prototype, you're ready to see it in action.

Previewing Your Prototype

To preview your prototype in Sketch:

  1. Click the Craft Player icon (craft-player-icon.png).
  2. In the Player modal, click, scroll, and interact with the prototype as needed.
    Note: To navigate screens without using a hotspot, press the left and right directional arrows on your keyboard.

Craft Player User Interface


At the top of the Player, you'll find three items:

  • Artboard dropdown list: Click the dropdown list to change the artboard currently shown in the Player.
  • Settings: Click the Settings icon (craft-player-settings-icon.png) to reveal an extensive list of all available device types you can select as your viewport size for the Player.
    Note: When you first open the Player, the viewport size is assigned automatically, based on your artboard sizes.
