Symbols being duplicated when Symbol Organizer is run

Here are the steps I followed to experience the issue:

  1. New Sketch document
  2. Dragged a symbol from DSM with a nested symbol it in (text link with an icon) into the empty document
  3. All of the icons came with it and were added to the Symbols page, no duplicates
  4. I run Symbol Organizer
  5. Now there are duplicates of all of the symbols
  6. Delete all of the copies
  7. Run symbol organizer again just to see if it adds the duplicates again, it doesn't

Symbol Organizer = https://github.com/sonburn/symbol-organizer

Any ideas?

UPDATE

After some testing, it was found that the root cause of this issue is the Symbol duplication that occurs when bringing over the nested symbols. Our Engineering team is aware of this issue and is working towards a solution.

If anybody else is encountering a similar issue, please feel free to contact our Support team directly here to report the issues that you're encountering. They will be able to troubleshoot with you and determine if this is, in fact, the root cause of what you're encountering as well.

Hi Jamie,

Thank you very much for providing those details! Sorry to see that you're running into this issue when using the Symbol Organizer plugin. So that we can dig a bit deeper and narrow down the potential cause of this issue, can you please provide the following information?:

  1. A screenshot of your "About this Mac" overview
  2. The version of Sketch that you're using
  3. The version of the DSM plugin that you're using
  4. What version of the Craft plugins are you using?

Look forward to hearing from you,

Shaina

I've noticed that it does this each time I bring something in from the DSM, not just the first time. So each new button with icon brings the nested icons again.

  3. The version of the DSM plugin that you're using
  4. What version of the Craft plugins are you using?
