Replace symbol instances across multiple artboards easily.

v1.0.0 is compatible with Sketch 0.0.0

Swap It

Swap it is a Sketch plugin that can be used to switch symbols across multiple artboards instantly. The plugin is designed to be flexible to enable swapping symbols such as:

  • Light mode ↔ Dark mode
  • Low fidelity ↔ High fidelity
  • Default state ↔ Filled state

and more!

How to Use

Swap It looks for symbols with a matching name across your linked libraries (or symbols within your document). For the plugin to pick up the corresponding symbol, they should have the same path name, with the modifier at the beginning or end of the name.

For example, to swap buttons between light and dark mode, the symbol names should be dark/button/default & light/button/default, or button/default/dark & button/default/light.

To use the plugin:

  1. Select one or more layers (or one or more artboards)
  2. From the menu, select Plugins → Swap It → Configure...
  3. Select whether the modifier is located at the beginning (e.g. dark/....) or end (.../dark) of the symbol name
  4. Enter the modifiers the plugin should find and replace (e.g. 'dark' & 'light'). Note these fields are case sensitive.
  5. (Optional) Select to use symbols located within the document (i.e. not in a library)
  6. Run the plugin!
