Are there any ways/plugins to split a text box into multiple layers based on new lines / line breaks on Sketch?

  • My immediate thought was that there has to be a script that does this, which is true: github.com/joshwayne/jw-sketch-plugins but there's an update there from 2 years ago saying: "Updated text plugins to work with Sketch 40" (probably means 4.0.). If that doesn't work in your Sketch version, you may want to search for "Sketch app text split plugin" and you may find something that I couldn't find. That's all I can give you.

There is a plugin for sketch which exactly do this. It is splitting one text box with multiple lines into multiple layers and also vice versa combine multiple layers to one text box with multiple lines. I am currently working with Sketch 50.2. and it is working quite nice - at least the splitting.
