Invision not honouring slices with "Export group contents only" in Sketch Library - getting a white background where it should be transparent

As per title, i've set up an icon set with each symbol containing a group, with the shape and a slice set to "Export group contents only" inside. This works fine when exporting icons directly from Sketch, but when I use an icon symbol from my library in a new document, the transparency isn't being honoured when I push to Invision via Craft. Icons now have a white background.

    I'm having the same result. White background where it should be transparent on screen uploaded from last Thursday on. 
    Screens that were updated before Thursday appeared with transparent background.
    Noted that I have not touch the icons on my library.
    I'll be waiting for your feedback

    Seems like the response was "We're aware of the issue, but we're not going to fix it any time soon"...seems to work fine in Zeplin, might have to switch to that instead.

    Cail & Shaina,
    If the boxes of Background color & Include in export were checked off the icons remain with the transparency background on Inspect.

    At list it's working for me.

    Thanks Joana, that fixed it for SVG exports but strangely not PNG exports.

    Also, now if i've changed the icon colour using overrides, invision inspect ignores it and shows the original, default colour.  Which is equally annoying!

    Joana - Thank you very much for providing that workaround! Glad to hear that's working for you in the meantime.

    Cail - I have notified your Support agent that you attempted this workaround, and your results when attempting this. Please look for a message from your Support agent in your inbox.

    Shaina, I should clarify, I think it might be a seperate but related issue...ignoring the symbol overrides was happening regardless.

    Example attached.
