I'm wondering what are the differences between symbols libraries, kits, and sticker sheets and how would I load them?

For instance, I just download the inVision Form kit, but I can't seem to load it into a project.

All I'm able to do is just click on it and view it.


Sketch Library

Sketch Library is an ordinary Sketch document that contains special Symbols. These special Symbols can be perceived as master Symbol instances. You can easily tell these Symbols apart from ordinary Symbols, because they have a custom icon in the Layer List, Sketch Library Symbol Icon.

To add a library, navigate to Preferences > Libraries tab

Kits are libraries of UI elements, app templates, and style guides. They create a solid jumping point for a faster workflow and better results when designing.

You can download them and add the elements to your template/asset/libraries to use them.

Sticker Sheets

These are documents that make creating an app fast and easy by having premade buttons, styles elements etc.

For example, a good one to use would be Google's Material Design. It contains various elements that make up layouts. The sticker sheet contains light and dark themes for the status bar, app bar, bottom toolbar, cards, dropdowns, search field, dividers, side nav, dialog, and floating action buttons.

This allows you, for example, to load up a template. You simply go to File → New from Template → Material Design — and you’ll see a wide set of components, icons, and layouts.
