Installation

To install all plugins, download them all first, unzip the archive, and place the folder contents in your Sketch Plugins folder by navigating to Sketch > Plugins > Reveal Plugins Folder…

To install only a selection of plugins, you will first need to place the library file inventory.js in the root of your Sketch Plugins directory. This is very important as all plugins rely on its functionality.

You can then install selected plugins by double-clicking the file, or alternatively, drag and drop the file onto the Sketch app icon. This will automatically copy the plugin to your Sketch Plugins folder.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Most plugins have a pre-defined keyboard shortcut. You can always change it by editing the shortcut written in parenthesis at the end of the first line of a plugin.

For example, the first line of Duplicate Artboard.sketchplugin:

// Duplicates the current artboard right next to it. (shift command d)

You can use modifier keys such as option, command, control, shift

Artboards

Duplicate Artboard (next to the current artboard)

This improves the built in behavior of artboard duplication in Sketch. If the selected artboard is in the middle of other artboards, all artboards on the right side will be shifted to the right before the artboard is duplicated. Requires any layer of an artboard to be selected.

Shortcut: shift + + D

Remove Artboard
