Overrides management not saved when put in DSM

When creating a symbol we can manage what overrides we want the symbol to offer (exemple : Text Style / Text Value / etc. ).


But one drop in DSM and used in another sketch file, none of this management is saved and the symbol display every overrides possible, not minding any of the previous boxes checked or not when uploading the symbol to the DSM.

Hi Bérénice,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having some issues with your symbols and DSM, but I'll be happy to look into this further for you. 

To get a better idea of what's going on here, I'd like to gather a few more details:

  1. Could you please confirm which version of Sketch you're running?
  2. Which version of Craft Manager are you running?
  3. Which version of the DSM plugin? You can find this by going to the "Tools" tab in the Craft Manager panel, and mousing over "Design System Manager" to reveal the version number.
  4. Could you please send through a screenshot of your "About This Mac" panel?

This information will help us take a better look at this issue for you, so I'll look forward to hearing back from you!

In the meantime, I also suggest taking a look at our Help Article, Does DSM support nested symbols? Does it work with symbol overrides?, to see if this information clears things up for you.

Hi Shaina,

I'm running on Sketch 57.1, and Craft is 1.0.86 (157) version.

For DSM it's the 1.1.22.


And thank you for the link, but the issue is really not about the overrides but the overrides management. When I drop a symbol out of the DSM, every symbol attached to it comes also so everything is fine for this part. The only thing is that the symbol display every modification possible, and doesn't keep what I would have checked or not previously.
