Sketch: Tint icons using nested symbols
I always wanted to create a single version of an icon and apply different colors to, or tint it, to indicate its state, like active or disabled for example.
Create an icon and turn into a mask, then use a symbol to fill the mask.
For symbol overrides in nested symbols to work the symbols must be of identical dimensions.
- Download the file.
- Edit the symbols and see how they are set up.
- Change color fills and see how they affect the icons.
Take it to the next level by using the same system for the outline of the icon. :)
If you have any tips on other ways to use smart symbols to achieve this effect shoot me an email at Francesco@FreeAndWilling.com or add a comment below. I appreciate your feedback.
Thank you :)
