What you need to know about our Abyssale PSD Exporter plugin ?

Here is some additionnal information to know about our plugin :

  • Decoration of part of the text will not be exported, you will need to add it manually in our builder

  • Layer groups are flattened as images when exported to abyssale, so if you have a text layer on top, you won't be able to edit this text on Abyssale. Please move the layer outside the group and select it in the plugin so that it can be imported into Abyssale as a text layer.

  • Layer selection in the plugin is not preserved if you change artboard and return to the previous artboard.

  • Artboard larger than 4000px will not be exported, and you will get an error message. Please select an artboard with fewer pixels or resize it before exporting
