Upload State Page

So far, all iDoc plugins, including the Sketch/XD/PS plugin, support uploading an artboards as “State page”:

  • In PS plugin, after selecting a single artboard in PS, you can select a single artboard in PS and tick “Upload the selected artboard(s)” option. Then, click the “Upload” button, the first upload will get completed.
  • If the artboard gets modified, you can upload it again in the same way.
  • Then, after editing the artboard, you can use the same way to upload it again.
  • If you want to replace the previously uploaded design copy, simply select the “Cover existing state” opition and choose the right copy that you want to rewrite.
  • If you want to upload it as a new state page, you can easily choose the “Add new state” option and enter a page name for it.
  • Then, you can freely check and preview all uploaded state pages in the Storyboard module of iDoc. (Of course, if you want to upload multiple state pages, merely repeat the above operations.)
