Just choose the tool that you'd like to import from—Figma, Adobe XD... or Sketch. We are glad to announce the launch of the ProtoPie plugin for Sketch.

Import your designs and add powerful interactions, in a much faster and more flexible way. Use conditions, text input, voice, camera, and a whole lot more.

Releasing the ProtoPie plugin for Sketch is part of the new ProtoPie 5.4.

Speed & flexibility in your Sketch + ProtoPie workflow

Many designers use ProtoPie to turn their Sketch designs into interactive prototypes. You can fully test, experience, and feel these realistic prototypes. Just as you would with the end product.

To provide clarity and gain insights, get your prototypes in the hands of your colleagues and relevant stakeholders by simply sharing.

The new import experience is completely different from the previous one, which we now call the legacy Sketch import.

Just let your imagination run free. Import multiple artboards as scenes at once, and objects with the same layer hierarchy, positioning, and constraints as in Sketch.
