We’ve noticed recently that importing files to Framer from Sketch is either very slow or times out. After digging into the problem, we’ve concluded that:
- Sketch’s Auto Layout plugin makes the system hang after executing an import
- Every import increases Sketch’s memory footprint, and that memory isn’t regained after the documents are closed
Both of these things cause Sketch to hog up resources, which makes importing much slower. Since these are issues are out of our control, we unfortunately cannot fix them.
To mitigate this problem, you can:
- Disable the Auto Layout plugin (Note: You must restart Sketch so the changes go into effect)
- Restart Sketch when it becomes slower after importing multiple times in a row
