Problem using Sketch libraries and exporting to Zeplin.

10 months ago from , UX + Visual Design @ IBM

Has anyone encountered the problem of using Sketch libraries and exporting to Zeplin? We've built a lot of our design patterns (forms, buttons, etc.) in a series of sketch libraries. When we export a page to Zeplin using elements linked to those libraries, Zeplin isn't picking them up. They appear on the page, but are not selectable for styling/redlining.

Kind of a big problem as our designs rely heavily on using these library patterns and the development team is getting started using Zeplin. Thanks!

    A colleague of mine had a similar issue... Is your artboard a symbol or just a regular artboard?

    We found the problem was to keep the artboard as normal and have the symbols of your design pattern as symbols on the artboard. Your symbols will still need to be sliced and symbols sitting within the artboard.

    Let me know if this helps.

      Thanks, I managed to resolve the issue by disabling other plugins that I guess were messing up the Zeplin.
