Craft Menu Bar Missing

I'm on Sketch 51.3, MacOS Mojave v.10.14, Craft Manage v1.0.70 (117) and the craft menu bar is missing. Is there an update to craft manager I'm missing here?

Hi there,

I'm experiencing some problems with the Craft Manager app v1.0.72 (122) with Sketch 52.3. It appears that there is a bug and it showed as installed in the Craft Manager but in the preferences and in Sketch plugins it is not installed. It doesn't even show up in the plugin window in Sketch :(

Would appreciate some help on this, thank you!

Hi Zarrin,

So sorry to hear that you're also running into these issues with the latest version of Craft. I'd like to have you perform a comprehensive, deep uninstall/reinstall of Craft using the steps below. Please skip any steps that are not applicable (e.g. if a file/folder mentioned is not present) and let me know if you get stuck anywhere along the way:

  1. Close Craft Manager (by clicking into the "C" > clicking the gear icon > choosing Close).
  2. Go into Sketch, and navigate to Plugins ➝ Manage Plugins.
  3. In the pop-up modal, select Craft by InVision Labs, and click the gear icon in the lower left and select the uninstall option. This will move some items to the trash.
  4. Quit Sketch entirely.
  5. Open the Activity Monitor (via Applications > Utilities > Activity Monitor), and then force quit the Craft Manager and Panels (if applicable) processes.
  6. Open Spotlight and search for ~/Library/Application Support/
  7. Delete the com.invisionlabs.CraftManager folder, the com.invisionlabs.CraftManager.json file, the com.invisionlabs.CraftInstaller folder, and the CraftManager folder.
  8. Open the com.bohemiancoding.sketch3 folder.
  9. Delete the Panels folder (if applicable). Please note that these steps will remove any custom Type or Photos items you’ve created in Craft Data. If you'd like to preserve those, please go to ~/Library/Application Support/com.bohemiancoding.sketch3/Panels/.settings and back up the file ""
  10. Open the Plugins folder.
  11. Delete the Panels.sketchplugin file (if applicable).
  12. Navigate to the Downloads folder.
  13. Search for craftinstaller and delete any files that deal with the Craft Installation process.
  14. In Applications or the folder in which you installed Craft Manager, delete
  15. Empty the Trash.
  16. Go to and unzip the CraftManager
  17. Drag and drop the Craft Manager app into your computer's "Applications" folder or the folder of your choice before launching it.
  18. Open Craft Manager and then install Craft for Sketch.
  19. If you had backed up the "" file before performing these steps: launch Sketch now in order to rebuild the ` ~/Library/Application Support/com.bohemiancoding.sketch3/Panels/.settings ` directory. Then, place the backed up "" file in the ".settings" folder and restart Sketch to restore your custom Type & Photos items.

Let me know how you go with this. If you have any questions along the way please don't hesitate to ask.

Look forward to hearing from you,

19 Steps to fix this, and who knows how long it could all take, honestly it'd be easier to just revert my OS back to High Sierra

Hi @Shaina

I've tried these steps previously from another posters problem but since the Craft plugin isn't actually installed for Sketch it does not appear in the plugins menu and in any of the folders.

This is the same problem I have experienced to one of the other users in this thread and support saying it is a bug an opening a ticket to fix this.

It's becoming an annoyance exporting each screen to my InVision account and adding to projects rather than with the plugin :(

I experience the same problem. Craft toolbar is missing. High Sierra 10.13.6, Sketch 63.1, Craft 1.0.103. I have uninstalled Craft, deleted Craft folder, restarted my mac, installed craft once again and clicked the "toogle craft" in the Plugins menu. Still no sign of the Craft toolbar. Please help.
