You can complete the import process as many times as you want. You can even import multiple legacy systems into one new design system.
1. Prepare your components for export
Firstly, you need prepare your components for export into a sketch library file. The new DSM integrates with Sketch via Sketch Libraries, and non-symbol layer groups can’t be referenced from a Sketch library. Therefore, these items can’t be imported.
2. Export your components
Now you'll need to export your components from Legacy DSM to a sketch file.
3. Create a new library and import file
We need to set up a new library to upload your sketch file to and move over your documentation.
4. Configure your new DSM library & add your Sketch file
Set your permission, theme, add users and then add your DSM managed library to Sketch
