Using Truncat with Overrides

OMG @kevgski's Truncat🐈 Plugin for @sketch can be applied to Layer Text Styles and shared with Libraries. No plugin needed for the rest of your team!!

Anthony Collurafici @CheckYourVector,

Because I’m using MacOS's native paragraph style properties to control truncation you don't need this plugin installed to render the truncation. You just need one of your team members to set things up with your Symbols & Text Styles and everyone gets the benifit!


  • Download the latest release of the plugin
  • Un-zip

Development Guide

This plugin was created using skpm. For a detailed explanation on how things work, checkout the skpm Readme.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
