Importing Made Easy

Flinto makes it incredibly easy to import your designs from Sketch. There's an importer plugin available from the Flinto team here.

Using this importer makes the transition to Flinto as easy as a single menu command. Flinto imports all your layers and artboards automatically.

There are a few things to be aware of when preparing your layers for import:

  • Groups will be imported as flattened bitmaps.
  • Groups containing a child group (or groups) will remain a group within Flinto. Child groups will be flattened.
  • Ovals and Rectangles with single fill/border/shadow properties will be imported as vectors, with modifiable properties. (You can animate fill color, size etc). Shapes with multiple fills, strokes, or shadows will be flattened.
  • Blur effects and blending modes won't import. Flatten manually in Sketch first.
  • Masked layers will be flattened.
