    Very cool, excited to finally try this out in production! The feature set has really come a long way from the initial beta (which was already promising).

    I like how it not only integrates the initial prototyping features of Silver Flows, but also shows the actual flows between screens, similar to what can be achieved with the User Flows plug-in. Not having to recreate the flows with two separate plug-ins will be a real time-saver.

      I was thinking the same thing. Sometimes that's all you need to show to other stakeholders, the full picture with arrows showing what the interactions do or take you to. I guess I'm not using User Flows anymore. It's a great plugin but you get that same functionality with Craft and the arrows don't get added as extra layers.

      Thanks Morten and Pablo. Bringing over features from UserFlows into Craft Prototype was intentional. I made UserFlows as a quick proof-of-concept to test how connections between artboards might work and how important the feature might be to designers out there (a lot, as it turns out). We implemented similar features in Craft Prototype but made it even more powerful. As Pablo mentioned, the arrows are not additional layers in Sketch and they also update automatically as you move, scale, and even duplicate layers. This is only the beginning though, so look out for more amazing features in coming weeks. Enjoy

        That's awesome – I am actually just now realizing that you created both Silver Flows and the User Flows plug-ins, Aby! Good job :)

        Can we expect some of the other features from User Flows (like a way to visualize conditions) to also be integrated in to future releases of Craft Prototype?
