Export PNG with transparent background

Hi Sketch Pro’s. I am completely new to Sketch and have a simple question. Is it possible to export a group \ shape with a transparent background?

I would like to export the following image with the shadow, border and icon intact, everything else should be transparent. The export “looks” correct when I select it to be exported in the app (below)

but when I open the exported file, it has a “grey” background (below).

Is what I am trying to do even possible?

Thank you.

If you’re opening the exported asset in an App like Preview, this might be the window background you’re seeing!

If you want to confirm:

  • Import the PNG to Sketch
  • Create a rectangle behind the bitmap
  • Check if the asset reacts to the background!

Let us know how it goes!

Thanks @raulrincon , you were correct :-).

Thanks again.
