Sketch: Bottom and Top-Right Pinned Menus using Anima App

#Sketch #UIDesign #Tips #AnimaApp

At the moment the only way in Sketch to make an Updatable Bottom and Top-Right Pinned Menus using Anima App is to “hack it”. (If you landed here it’s probably because you tried it before and didn’t really work fo you… It was a problem for me too, hence this hack 🤪)

Get the sample file or read below:
  1. Apply a 180 degree rotation (Transform) to the stack



Apply a 180 degree rotation

AND to the actions/elements in the stack (Visually it will look the same as your original menu.)



2) Make sure to pin your stacks (bottom or top right)



Pin your stack or symbol (bottom like above, or top right)

It works with normal stacks and with stacks inside symbols. Same hack for right aligned menus.



Tricky but does the job! :)

👉 Here you can download a sample file.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Ciao!
Francesco

SketchToPortfolio: Update your Portfolio directly from Sketch

#Sketch #Plugins #Productivity #Portfolios

Drag Sketch Artboards to your Free&Willing public feed or to a private collection of yours (portfolio, photogallery, moodboard...). Works with PNGs and JPGs as well.

Installation

Download, unzip and double click SketchToPortfolio.sketchplugin

Usage:

1) Launch the plugin: Plugins > SketchToPortfolio > Upload To Free&Willing
2) Log into your Free&Willing account (create a profile)
3) Drag Artboards from your Sketch file into the drop area. You can drag PNGs and JPGs from your desktop too.

Tips:

  • If you organize your images into a collection you have more control on the privacy as the images won't appear in your public feed but will be visible when sharing the collection's URL.
  • You can change the visibility of each image after upload too if you want
  • Adding tags to the artboard (or filename) will add tags to your post. For example the Artboard called "Mobile Home Screen #mobile #app #UIDesign" (same thing for PNGs or JPGs "Mobile Home Screen #mobile #app #UIDesign.png")
