I'm not able to import any sketch templates. To eliminate my work from the equation, I downloaded the starter templates located at: When I attempt to import the iphone5 template. I received the same error: Import Failed. Please check Console for errors. Console does not provide any errors.

I am using Framer Studio Version 1.12.0 and Sketch Version 3.3.2. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

P.S. Photoshop templates import fine.

I'm trying to reproduce, but without any luck so far with neither the current stable or the latest beta. Can you think of any contextual factor that might be at play?

Are there any errors in your (so not the web inspector console).

Problem Solved: Sketch2 was the problem, It was identical to the issue experienced by Fredrik Søgaard:

Koen Bok

Yep, we only added Framer support in Sketch > 3.2. I thought I checked that. I'll verify.

The problem stems from the Sketch upgrade. I owned a copy of Sketch 2, but upgraded to Sketch 3 shortly after it's release. Sketch 3 does not overwrite Sketch 2, it leaves it dormant in the Applications folder. But for some reason it interferes with the FramerJS sketch import. I uninstalled Sketch 2 in order for the import to function properly.
