Hi guys. Just stared playing with Sketch and Framer Studio. Quick question about importing. I have a simple rectangle and some text in Sketch. Then I import the opened file via the built-in importer, but see nothing on Studio's iPhone screen. I tried using the importedLayers object, but it highlights red. What am I missing? Do I have to install the separate Framer Generator app? Thanks in advance!

Are your layers in a group(s)?

Make sure you layers are in a group and position the group at x:0 y:0 in Sketch. Hope this helps! Also check out There are some sample sketch files available there.

Nick, I just have 2 individual layers in no group (doing a barebone test). Cate, I thought there is some specific setup on the Sketch side, but was not sure what it is. I will take a look at the examples and will see if that solves my problem :)

Svet they gotta be in a group to be imported to framer. Check the learn > importing page

Thanks Nick. I put them in groups, and it worked. So if I understand correctly the "import" feature is all i need, and not the app shown here: My guess is that the video shows an outdated way to do the import?

Yep import is all you need.

Thanks Koen! Even across even sketch importer plug-in so was a little confused what was current. Great job on making the import process easy as cake!
