Request: It would be super-neat if the Photoshop importer could import a hierarchy of layer groups (maybe down to a user-defined level, or even just two levels), so I could create a Layer hierarchy in the PSD instead of in code.

what's the use case, here? hierarchy is already available using layer.superlayer, for example: http://framerjs.com/docs/#layer.superLayer (sorry if I misunderstood)

I assume it's so you don't have to manually recreate the structure.
e.g. if you hav navbar.buttonA, navbar.buttonB etc...

Dave Feldman

Kevin is correct — the idea is you use Photoshop's layer-management tools to create the Layer hierarchy instead of doing it in the code. Two benefits there: (1) less code; (2) you can keep your Photoshop files organized.

So I just started using framer, but I've been very confused because I found this video before I purchased, which seems to do just what you are mentioning. In the video he is also able to mask things from photoshop and they update in framer. Did they update framer and remove these features or something?

David, I'm pretty sure that feature has been removed. Here's a solution (drag the icon around the screen): http://share.framerjs.com/snojqnx4fxfd/

That's a pretty big bummer. Those features looked very useful. They should probably see about removing outdated videos.
