Hi,
douse anyone know a "Sketch Symbol Panel" Plugin (like the one in Figma or OmniGraffle Stencil Panel) to Preview Symbols. I seek for a more visually comfortable way, than via the current tiny context menu that comes with Sketch by default. And maybe to have some Drag n' Drop possibilities to ease the add workflow.

Ps: I know there is "Runner", but thats not what I seek for :)

Thanks! This is very Close to what I'm seeking for. :) But we use the native Sketch Lib. and Craft would add redundancy plus some stupid german cloud-data-security probs.

Sorry I meant to say DSM (design system manager) by invision. It integrates with Craft. https://support.invisionapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005685166-Introduction-to-Design-System-Manager

Thanks for your suggestions! :)

DSM seems not to handle big files well. Just tested two Projects with 200+ Sym. and it always crashes Sketch :(

The idea is nice but the interface and workload to use it is just a pain. This can be done a lot cleaner with just using libraries well

I'd be happy with a simple search field
