Add file extension to layer name for dropped in files
Webbler Posts: 16
This way when I pass my Lunacy file to mr. code guy it's more clear which asset in the repo he should use for that element.
The filename as the layer name is great but having the file extension there too would help.
Could you explain the common case of use? It looks like an over functionality.
Isn't it enough?
The idea is just for there to be a clearer connection, in the sketch file, to an external file so it's obvious where to find the asset when writing CSS and creating the page.
I tend to create all assets in Illustrator or Photoshop for use on the web, but I'll drop them into the sketch file while building the mockup.
A file format extension in a layer name would tell the web coder using the sketch file that that particular element is an instance of an external file so he should go grab and use for that part of the page.
It's working for images, but not for shapes with an Image fill.
