Using (Sketch) assets from Lingo in Sketch can be done two ways: automatically or manually.

Automatically

You press a button and the plugin adds to Sketch all Symbols, Text Styles, and Layer Styles found in Lingo. To do so:

  1. Open the plugin by going to Plugins > Lingo
  2. Connect the plugin to a Lingo Kit
  3. Click “Pull All”

It is important to note once more that this method only adds Symbols, Text Styles, and Layer Styles—aka the reusable components. Since these are added together, you can be certain that all “connected/nested” assets make their way into your Sketch file. For this reason, we recommend this approach whenever you are dealing with said assets. This approach is also great when you want to quickly add to your Sketch file the many assets you may have in Lingo.

Manually

You select an asset in Lingo and drag & drop (or copy & paste) into your Sketch file. Here's how:

  • Select an asset in Lingo and drag & drop into Sketch
  • Select an asset in Lingo and copy & paste into Sketch

This works for all asset types—Symbols, Text Styles, Layer Styles, Artboards, Groups, and Layers.


Now that you know how to use Sketch assets stored in Lingo, learn the reverse workflow: Adding assets from Sketch to Lingo.
