Why does it look like Invision is compressing my mockups?

I've noticed a difference in font sizes between my local Sketch file and the Sketch filew once it's been uploaded (through Craft) to an Invision project. I am including a screenshot comparing the two. The top mockup is through Invision and the bottom mockup is my Sketch file. You can see that the font size in Sketch (bottom example) looks larger than the font shown through Invision (top example). Any idea why this happens?

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for reaching out about this issue! In order to get a better idea as to why this might be happening, can you please answer the following?:

     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?
     4. When viewing your prototype in the InVision Web App, what browser and version are you using?
     5. What export pixel density are you selecting in the Craft Sync screen before syncing?

Selecting a pixel density will export the artboard at the selected density. If 2x is selected, a 500x500 artboard will be exported and uploaded at twice the size (1000x1000), but it will be displayed in your prototype at 500x500. Alternatively, you can export at 1x.

Sketch’s density setting will up-res the image. You can read more about using Craft Sync here.

Look forward to hearing from you,
