Exporting assets from Sketch to Zeplin
Hello folks, here’s a quick video on how assets
work in Zeplin. To export an asset to Zeplin, you just need to select the layer in Sketch
and set it as exportable. You don’t even need to select any of these options here because
Zeplin will figure that out for you, depending on your project type, project density. One
other way to export is to use a “Slice”. Let’s see it here on this icon. I’ll create a slice
and the cool thing about the slice is that you can leave paddings around your icons however
you want. You select the slice, you select the layer and you group them together. When
you do that and select the slice, there’s an option right here that says “Export Group
Contents Only”. When you select that, Sketch will ignore the background and you’ll only
have the icon exported. Basically that’s it. Let’s export this out to Zeplin. So, right
here, when I click the layer, I see the asset immediately. Same thing for this yellow icon
here. I can just click this button and export the icons wherever I want. Hope this helps!
