I know I am spoiling the party, but this is really strange to me. If I create the layer in code, it's not visible in design mode.
Also if I import something from sketch for example, I can't just go to design mode and add text layers that I need.
Was about to say that
yep that's one of the issues - I was hoping to setup styles and or symbols but couldn't really get it to work in that way
This is indeed lacking.
Yes indeed. Right now, the design tab is an alternative for a Sketch or Figma import, and code is where everything comes together. It is fun to see how adding design to a prototyping tool encourages these questions of what where lives, and we're looking forward to build on that now we have both. Good ideas are always welcome too.
While we can't import from sketch to design, we can copy/paste :)However, is there a way to copy at 2x / 3x etc? It currently pastes at 1x and icons turn out blurry.
If you setup your slices to export @2x you can drag those layers straight into Framer.
Wow, great info here.
Tip: give your artboard in Design a target so you can place it on top of your Sketch import with a: DesignArtboard.bringToFront()
