Hi guys, I have some design variants of the same screen separated in different art boards. What is your preferred method of working with variants? It feels a bit redundant to separate each art board in a different sketch/framer file just because a few things a different.

What do you want to do with these various artboards?

Now I duplicate my sketch file, tweak some stuff (different button, extra modal, whatever), duplicate the framer file, tweak the code and test both prototypes. But it feels a bit cumbersome to duplicate everything for each iteration.

The beauty of the sketch importer is that you can tweak the details in sketch and keep re-importing the same file while maintaining the functionality in your prototype. Is this what you're looking for? Or do you want more of a history functionality to go back to previous versions?

I get that, and that works like a breeze if I'm doing things on my own. But for history/alternatives reasons since my team isn't always here to make decisions together. In Sketch I like to have multiple art boards next to each other so differences are clear (a bit like Fireworks used to do with states). Would be nice if something like that is possible in framer too
