Can't see links between artboards in sketch


I'm using Craft in sketch, and when I link the artboards I can see the blue link, but once it's done I can't see the blue links anymore. The prototype is working in invision, but i can't see the links in sketch, and I'm therefore not able to change them or delete them. Now I'm stuck with a broken prototype that I can't fix or redo..

Any solutions for me? Or a solution to desynchronise the links and start over again..?

(Something else that could be an answer: the plug-in seems to be incompatible with the last version of sketch 48.1, or maybe then I have a problem with updating it)

Thank you

Hey Caroline,

Can you give me a bit more detail on what you mean by "blue links" - are you referring to hotspot flashing?

Hi Berth,


thanks for your answer, I mean these links:


As you see, when I press "C" I can see the link, and when the link is done I can't see it anymore. So I can't change or delete any of my links as they disappear straight away

Hey Caroline,

Click the Prototype icon:
Screen_Shot_2017-05-12_at_8.32.28_AM.pngat the bottom of the Craft panel or press X at any time to switch to prototype mode. In prototype mode, you will see all created hotspots appear by default. Clicking on a layer while in prototype mode will only show the hotspots tied to that artboard. You can exit prototype mode any time by pressing X again or clicking the prototype icon.

Please also go to the Craft menu, Sync, and check to make sure you did not select to Disable Prototype. This will disable the hotkeys, the ability to toggle Prototype mode on, and the option to include hotspots when syncing with Craft Sync.

Please let me know if this does not resolve your issue!

I'm having the same issue. Does anyone know how to reveal the hotkeys and hotspots indicated with blue connecting lines+blue arrow (just as Caroline mentioned above)?

Hi Christopher,

Sorry to hear that you're also running into this issue. Did you happen to follow the instructions provided by Beth in her response above? If so, are you still encountering this issue when attempting those steps?

If you are still encountering issues revealing the hotkeys and hotspots, can you please provide the following information?:

     1. What version of Sketch are you using?
     2. What version of Craft Manager are you using?
     3. What version of the Craft Sync plugin are you using?

Hope this helps, and look forward to hearing from you!
