Getting Started

There are a few basics you need to learn when working with Runner.


Download Runner, then double-click the .sketchplugin bundle to install. On launch, your trial starts.


There are 6 commands that each have their own specific functionality. You switch between these commands with the tab key.

  • Run Sketch Menu or Plugin actions

  • Go To any Layer in your document

  • Insert Symbols

  • Create Symbols or Shared Styles

  • Apply Styles to Shape and Text Layers

  • Install other Plugins

Launch Runner

To launch the Runner search window, you need to set up a hotkey. You can do this during onboarding. You can always change it in the Shortcuts section of Runner Settings.
