Assets from sketch

Maybe this issue has been raised before, sorry for that... I don't know what's the best way to export assets from sketch and where in my file should I mark an asset to be exported (in the symbol page? In all artboards where I am using this assets? Only on one artboard?). Let's say I am using a search icon in the design of the menu bar of a website. This menu bar is a symbol and contain the search icon which is also a symbol. My first thought is to "make exportable" the search icon in the Symbols page, where I can edit the menu bar symbol. But then how does the developer see this asset in Inspect from invision? Because when he is accessing the different artboards of the website design, he can't actually see that the search icon has been set as an asset... Any idea? Articles about this? Best practice?? Thank you.

Hi Félix,

We are sorry to hear that you are running into this issue with Inspect. We would like to take a closer look into this issue, could you please provide me with the answers to the below questions: 

- What version of Sketch and Craft Manager are you using?

- Can you send over a screenshot/screenshot showing this issue?

Once we have this information, we will spin up a ticket with our Support team to look a bit further into this issue.

Cheers,

Brittini

Hello 

Thank you for your answer. It is not really an issue, I am just trying to find the best way to handoff assets top developer.

You can find a video here where I try to illustrate what I explained. I have some assets that I am exporting from the Symbols page of Sketch, but there is no way to make them appear on the page where I am using them in the design so that they can grab them.

On the page you can see in the design, there is 8 icons. To make them appear in the design I am using overrides in Sketch. So it means that I can't export those icons from this particular artboard. I have to export those 8 icons individually from the Symbols page in Sketch, but it means that the developer can't see the assets when checking this artboard.

Here is the video : https://www.dropbox.com/s/gkfc8x10nm1nxjo/enregistrement%20de%20l%E2%80%99%C3%A9cran%202020-02-26%20%C3%A0%2017.08.23.mov?dl=0

Thank you.

Hey Félix,

Thanks so much for following up with that added information and a screencast displaying these issues. After reviewing your video, this does appear to be an issue with syncing your symbols when using Craft. If you're experiencing similar issues to those explained in the two Community threads that you linked to, our team will need to take a closer look at this for you to determine the source of the issue.

Before handing this over to our Support team, can you please provide the following information?:

  1. A screenshot of your "About this Mac" overview
  2. The version of Craft Manager that you're running
  3. The version of Sketch that you're using
  4. The browser that you are you running. This can be found at https://www.whatismybrowser.com/.

After receiving this information, our Support team will likely need to test the issue directly with a file that you're having these issues with.

In order to give your developers access to Inspect so that they can view your symbols once this is working properly, follow the instructions detailed here. Additionally, I suggest taking a look at this Community thread for some general advice on best practices for designer to developer handoff.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Shaina
