2.2 Creating, saving, and managing documents

This lesson is all about document management. You’ll learn how to create, save and manage documents in your Workspace — a key skill as you start doing more in Sketch.

Some UI in this video is outdated — no worries, this doesn’t affect how things work. We’ll share an updated version soon!

Key learnings

  • You can save documents to your Workspace or locally. Use My Drafts to store documents that you don’t want other members of the Workspace to see — perfect for personal projects or ideas that aren’t quite ready for you to share.

  • Choose File > Open Workspace document… or use the keyboard shortcut CommandO to open a document in the Mac app.

  • Drag and drop a local document into the Workspace window to save a copy in your Workspace.
