Hey Framer Pro`s. Is there any way to automaticly remove numbers within the sketch file?

In Framer i get everytime the error "Error: (6) Layer or Artboard names can not start with a number".

I have a few numbers in my layer, but not at the beginning.

For example: A layer is named "XMLID_467_" or "Rectangle 36".

Could you share this sketch file with support so I can look into it?

Hey Chris,
It's perfectly fine if layer names contain numbers, they just can't START with one (FYI it's a programming language thing)! In your case, one layer called "6" causes an error, so I've renamed it to "foo", making this prototype load properly:

I updated my Sketch file, but i did not found any number in the beginning of a layer. I am still getting the same error.

Here is my Sketch File:
