Rename symbol instances to their override text values

v1.0.1 is compatible with Sketch 53.0.0

Symbol Namer plugin for Sketch

Download from Compatible Sketch Version

A Sketch plugin to rename symbol instances to their override text values.

symbol namer


  • The name is based on the value of the text override that appears first in the Inspector panel
  • Symbol instances without text overrides are ignored

How it works

When a symbol has more than one text override, Symbol Namer assumes that you have set your symbol up nicely, so that its primary override is listed first in Sketch's Inspector panel. You can control this order by arranging the symbol master's layers in the desired order.


Requires Sketch 53+
