I'm brand new at Framer, but super excited. I'm stuck on what seems to be a really basic problem: I can't access any of my sublayers when I import from slack. Basically every action just hits the parent layer and nothing beyond that. I'm using some code from an example that seems to be similarly structured, so I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Hey Jesse, welcome to Framer :) To access layers inside of your sketch object, you can do this:

for name, layer of sketch
layer.on Events.Click, -> print @

To access the sublayers inside of a specific group, you can do this:

for layer, index in sketch.specificGroup.subLayers
layer.on Events.Click, -> print @
