# Troubleshooting Convertify

# What's not supported in the conversion from Figma?

Convertify doesn't carry over these features/properties from your Figma files:

  • Auto/smart layout properties
  • Components -> Symbols
  • Local/shared styles
  • Prototype links

# Figma features missing in Sketch

These features are available in Figma, but aren't native to Sketch, so they won't be carried over with the Convertify plugin.

  • Hiding parent artboards
  • Rotated parent artboards
  • Ellipsis with "arc" properties

# Figma features missing in Adobe XD

These features are available in Figma, but aren't native to Adobe XD, so they won't be carried over with the Convertify plugin.

  • Hiding parent artboards
  • Rotated parent artboards
  • Ellipsis with "arc" properties
  • Mulitple fills/strokes on a layer
  • Vector layers that use corner radius
  • Strokes/fills applied to groups
  • Vertical alignment for text layers
  • Nested layer masks

# Converting massive Figma files

If you're happy to wait for the process to finish, Convertify can handle really large Figma files (tens of thousands of layers). If possible, try not to switch out of your Figma tab and let it run to completion. If you're converting files with 50,000+ layers (especially with lots of images), you'll likely experience some slower speeds when it comes to bundling up the final file.

File Splitting

If the file is really big and simply won't finish or takes too long to do in one go; a good approach is "splitting" your Figma page across multiple pages, and converting each smaller page one by one. This should help lighten the load on Convertify for bigger files.

# The Sketch file won't open

If you're running an older version of Sketch, please ensure you select the version of Sketch you're using in Convertify before exporting the Figma file. Alternatively, if possible, updating your version of Sketch should help you get the best results with opening files exported from Convertify.

If neither of these options work, it may be being caused by a bug in the plugin, in which case; please do get in touch and we'll try to publish a fix as soon as possible!

# Missing Fonts in Sketch

There are some cases were you may need to click the "Missing Fonts" notification in Sketch and manually re-assign them if they're not currently installed on your computer.

# Text Clipping in Sketch

If your text layer bounds (width/height) in Figma are smaller than the text size itself, Sketch will visually vertically clip if the height is shorter than the text itself, or it will put your text onto multiple lines if the width is shorter than the text itself. To resolve this when it occurs, you can adjust the width/height of your text layer(s) in Figma and re-export it for Sketch.

# Groups in Sketch

Groups in Sketch can't have backgrounds, so Convertify will add a background "rectangle" layer to visually emulate group backgrounds from your Figma design.

# Image Crops in Sketch

Non-destructive image cropping isn't supported in Sketch, so Convertify will transform your cropped images from Figma to a "masked" Sketch group, retaining your full original image and emulating its visual crop.

# Clip Content in Sketch

"Clip content" doesn't exist on group layers in Sketch, so Convertify will create a "mask" layer at the bottom of the group to visually emulate clipping for Figma frames with clipped content enabled.

# Vertical Text Alignment in Adobe XD

Vertically aligned text isn't supported in Adobe XD, so Convertify will attempt to emulate vertically aligned text (where possible) by offsetting the top position.
