Library assets not working since updating to Sketch 49

All of my assets are present in the library, but when I move them onto an artboard, everything except text is hidden. The selection container still behaves as if the asset were completely present, but nothing is visible.

Hi Good Morning William,

Can you check to see what version of craft manager you are currently running?

Hey William,

This issue might be related to the release of Sketch 49. 

If you haven't already done a complete uninstall and reinstall, please follow the steps below:

      1. Uninstall all the Craft plugins from Sketch 
      2. Uninstall Craft Manager
      3. Restart computer
      4. Download the new version of Craft Manager and you're back in business!

If you are still having issues after performing the update, please be sure to post here and I will notify our Support team.

Craft Manager v. 1.0.52 (78)

Yesterday I completely uninstalled/reinstalled craft manager and the problem persisted after restarting.

Uninstall and reinstall Craft didn't work. Those grey shapes in the middle are some of the icon symbols in the library.

We've released a new version of Craft Library 1.0.76 with a fix in place to resolve the issue discussed in this thread, where the majority of the elements within symbols were invisible when dragging the symbol from Craft Shared Library into a Sketch document after the update to Sketch 49. Please check that you're on the most current version of Craft Library and Sketch. You can check your Craft Library version by clicking the "C" icon and then hovering over Library as in the screenshot below:


Please first check for any Craft Manager updates by clicking the "C" icon > gear icon > Preferences > Check for updates. This will ensure you're on the most current version of Craft Manager.

To check for any plugin updates, simply click the "C" icon once again and then hit shift + command + R to refresh Craft Manager. This should then prompt to restart Sketch if any updates are available.

Once you're on the most current version of Craft Library, you should no longer experience the issue. Thanks to everybody for their patience with us!
