I'm having an issue exporting some icons from sketch to .png files.

The layers is are 144 x 144 but when I try exporting them I get a 152 x 152 size .png file.

I have enabled the trim transparent pixels option but nothing is changed.

Thank you for your help

    What is size of your canvas? 144 or 152?

  • 144. I found a workaround to this. Simply i set a size of 136x136 of the icon, and that will be exported as a 144x144

  • I see. This is why it sounds to me (PS user) quite surprisingly :)

Are you using the Slice tool or just selecting the layer and exporting it? I found myself that just exporting the layer is bugged and does what you describe. While the Slice tool works.
