i'm trying to import an older sketch file in my library. I downloaded it once from the Sketch 2 website.

This is the file and Pixa always says that there is nothing to import.

Any ideas?

    Hello Torsten,

    we've investigated the case and the result is: this file is probably generated by a version of Sketch previous of the 2 (the preview inside the file is in a different format).

    The solution could be to open the file with Sketch 2 and save it once in order to be able to import it in Pixa.

    Sketch 3 is currently not supported in Pixa and we'll do everything possible to integrate the support to it.

    I hope this will help you,

    have a perfect day!

    Hello August,

    we are currently working on a solution with the Sketch developers but for now there is nothing ready. We'll try to implement it as soon as possible.

    Thank you for the feedback,

    have an awesome day!

    Was support for Sketch files ever completed?

    Another designer here that desperately needs Sketch support (of course now Bohemian Coding has released Sketch version 4). Would be ideal if Pixa could support sounds and even fonts as well. Pixa is great. Thank you!

    Un altro progettista qui che ha disperatamente bisogno di sostegno Sketch (ovviamente ora Bohemian Coding ha rilasciato Sketch versione 4). Sarebbe l'ideale se Pixa potrebbe sostenere i suoni e perfino i caratteri pure. Pixa è grande. Grazie!
