Sketch files not importing

When I try importing a sketch file it shows the .sketch file, grayed out, dragging and dropping doesn’t do anything either.

Using the latest stable version (4.8.5) on both
iOS 16 developer beta 4
iPadOS 16 developer beta 4

I figured the Vectornator beta version might have fixed the issue so I joined the Vectornator beta and using the Vectornator beta (4.9.0) it still doesn’t import and shows the file grayed out

Hi there @iPad,

So sorry to hear about this issue and I’d be happy to help.

I notice that you are currently operating iOS 16.0 and unfortunately, as Vectornator does not support Beta versions, there’s a chance that this could be the root of the issue but nonetheless, we will of course investigate the matter.

Would you mind forwarding one such .sketch file that you’re trying to import and I will request for the team to test it? You can attach it here in the thread or mail it directly via
