Grabbing lost design elements from the past in Sketch

Sketch gives us an infinitely sprawling canvas to lay out as many artboards and design elements as our hearts desire. But with that kind of freedom comes great responsibility — inevitably, something may accidentally get changed, moved, or even deleted entirely as we work. By the time we catch the problem, it’s often too late for command-Z.

Fortunately, Sketch can revert your document to a previous version in the event of a major crisis. But more often than not, what’s gone missing is just something small.

So what do we do when it’s too late for undo and reverting the entire document would be too drastic? This nifty little trick.
