How do I import a set of symbols in Sketch 3?


Question

How do I import symbols from one project into another. For instance, I've downloaded the Bootstrap 3 resource, and I want to bring the symbols into another project I'm working on without copying and pasting one by one.

Accepted Answer

In Sketch Symbols and Shared Styles work across pages, but not cross-document.

  • One way is to have a page (symbols page) with all the symbols you need and copy only the necessary for each project.
  • A second approach (actually is the technique I've been using) is
    to have a template with two pages, one for all the symbols and another blank page in the same file. So, you only have to start every project by creating a new file based on this template.
