How do I use the Sketch plugin?

 

 

If you use Sketch to do your design work then you'll love our plugin which allows you to quickly sync your designs to your Marvel projects in just a few clicks (or keyboard shortcut!). We've also added the ability to play prototypes directly in Sketch and record your flow as an exportable video!

You can download the Marvel plugin for Sketch here.

Installing the plugin

  1. You'll need to already have Sketch installed on your computer before installing the plugin. You can download Sketch here
  2. Make sure you have OS X 10.11 or later on your Mac
  3. Close Sketch 
  4. Download the Marvel plugin here
  5. Unzip the file and double click the 'M' icon file to install
  6. Select Open at the popup
  7. Choose the option to move the download to your Applications folder
  8. Open Sketch
  9. The Marvel menu will now be available on the left-hand panel

 

Add or sync images from Sketch to your project

Keep prototypes up-to-date with your latest design changes at the click of a button.

  1. Open your design file in Sketch
  2. Select the artboards you would like to sync with your Marvel project, then click the Sync Selected button (alternatively you can click Sync All to send everything)
  3. The export settings menu will appear, select the project you want to sync to and the image size

Note: Each artboard is unique, even if they have the same name. If you create another artboard, it won't sync with the original even if it has the same name. You'll need to edit the original artboard to sync the changes. 

Play your prototype in Sketch

The latest version of the plugin comes with a prototype player, so now you can play your prototypes without leaving Sketch! The player automatically updates each time you sync new designs.

 

  1. Click the Play button in the Marvel menu
  2. The player will open in a separate window
  3. Click inside the window to move through your prototype

 

Record your flow as a video

If you want to quickly share a video of your prototype flow with your team or clients, you can now record your interactions within Sketch.

  1. In the player, click Record
  2. Go through the flow of your prototype
  3. Click Record again to stop recording
  4. Click Save in the pop-up dialogue
