Select Different Pixel Densities

You can expand the artboard size menu and choose a proper artboard size for all your selected designs before uploading.

For example, if you have an artboard in 750px*1334px, @2× is a good choice.

Notes: If you are uploading the design unintentionally, you can click "Cancel" (in the upper right corner) to stop the process.

panel to upload a state page. Click here to view detailed steps of the State Page.

Add an update note

When exporting the latest design version with iDoc plugin, you can easily add an update note to further explain design changes clearly. Just click "Add an update note" (at the bottom of the plugin interface), and then, both of your designs and update notes will be exported to iDoc on the web.

The other team members can easily view the note details instantly in the "Activity" mode online.

Export High-Quality Artboards

The Sketch plugin also supports an "Upload high-quality artboards" option.

Once selected, you can export your artboards twice the original size.

However, this may slow the screen loading in Storyboard. If you encounter similar laggy screen issues, please unselect the option.

Set Specs to Include Extension Areas

The Sketch plugin now supports a "Spec includes extension area" option.

Once selected, your marked assets will be exported into Mockplus Cloud and shown with extension areas, like shadows, borders, and blurs, etc. If you don't select the option, the marked assets will be shown in its original layer size.
