Figma and Sketch are two of the most popular design tools used by professionals in the design industry. Both tools offer a range of features and capabilities, allowing designers to create beautiful designs quickly and easily. But many designers wonder if it is possible to convert Figma designs into Sketch files.
The answer is yes, it is possible to convert Figma files into Sketch files. The process is relatively straightforward, but it does require a few steps. First, you will need to export your Figma file as an SVG file.
This can be done by selecting “Export” in the top menu and then selecting “SVG” as the output format. Once you have exported your file as an SVG file, you will need to open it in a vector editor such as Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator and save it as an .svg file again.
Once you have saved the SVG file, you can then open the .svg file in Sketch. You will need to make sure all of your layers are present before converting the .svg file into a Sketch format. To do this, you will need to create a new artboard for each layer that appears in your Figma design. Make sure that all layers are visible before converting them into Sketch format. Once all layers have been converted, you can then export your design as a .sketch file.
If you want to keep your design elements organized and make sure everything looks consistent between both tools, there are some additional steps that you can take when converting from Figma to Sketch. For example, when exporting from Figma to SVG, make sure that all text layers are converted into shapes so they appear correctly when imported into Sketch.
In addition, if your Figma design includes multiple artboards with different sizes or orientations, make sure that each artboard is exported separately and then imported individually into Sketch so they appear correctly.
Converting from Figma to Sketch is possible but requires a few steps including exporting an SVG file from Figma and opening it in a vector editor such as Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator before saving it back out as an .svg file which can then be imported into Sketch where each layer needs to be properly organized before being converted into the final .sketch format. Additionally, users should ensure text layers are converted into shapes prior to exporting from Figma and consider separately exporting multiple artboards with different sizes or orientations for proper importation into Sketch afterwards.
