Before importing a legacy design system to a new DSM design system, you will need to upload the master Sketch files for your legacy system to the new DSM. To learn more, check out the section "Uploading a Sketch file to DSM" in this article: Creating a Design System
If you don’t already maintain a master Sketch file for your design system, DSM can quickly generate one for you.
To generate a Sketch file from your legacy design system:
- In Sketch, open the legacy DSM plugin
If you want the Sketch file to reflect the latest iteration of your design system, select the Draft version.
- Next to the system name, click the drop-down and select [Your design system] > Export to a Sketch file.
- Click Export.
DSM will generate a new Sketch file that contains the exported content. You can then upload the file to your new DSM design system.
