How do I use Runner?

You can open Runner with ⌘ + ' – On a QWERTZ keyboard that would be ⌘ + ⇧ + #

Cycle through categories with your (tab) key and select search results with your up and down arrow keys. Hit to fire a command.

If you need a quick tutorial check this video made by @robinrendle

I don't like your shortcut. Can I set my own?

Yes you can! Just jump to your System Preferences and add your own keyboard shortcut for Runner in Sketch. More detailed instructions here.

Can't get Runner to work.

I'm Still running OS X Yosemite (10.10)

There were some issues on previous versions, but now we support Yosemite starting with version 0.6 of the plugin. If you keep experiencing this issue please let us know.


I am using a third-party unarchiver

There is also a known issue when unarchiving the .zip file with a third-party tool (e.g. "The Unarchiver"). Please try with the native OS X unarchiver (Archive Utility) and let us know if it's working!

Some plugins or menu items do not appear in Runner.

We unfortunately can't grab all menu items due to some restrcitions in Sketch. Let us know which ones are missing!

The Runner input field is not focused on launch.

This should be fixed with version 0.6 of the plugin. If you keep experiencing this issue please report it.

I want to revert back to an older version…

We are working on an History Page to let you download all versions. This is coming soon! In the meantime: please let us know what's wrong.

I still have a question...
