    What’s new

    • Improvements and bug fixes This release is all about small, quality-of-life improvements that add up to a better overall experience in Sketch — from setting any Artboard as your document thumbnail to an improved Smart Grid experience.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve added the option to use an Artboard as your document’s thumbnail. Control-click on an Artboard’s name and select Set As Thumbnail.
    • You’ll now see how many rows and columns a selection has when you hover over the Smart Grid handle — not just as you use it.
    • We’ve improved how the Inspector tabs behave when adding an interaction to a layer while having the DESIGN tab active. We now only switch to the PROTOTYPE tab after you finish setting up the interaction.

    What’s changed

    • When you add a border to a text layer, its position will now be Outside by default (instead of Center).

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes an issue where, after updating a Text Style, the bounds of groups containing layers with that Text Style didn’t update.
    • Fixes an issue where text layers with Auto Height could move when entering and leaving edit mode if previously they were set to Fixed Size.
    • Fixes a bug where the Symbol’s menu in the Inspector would not expand if the ‘Show Same Size Symbols Only’ option was enabled in the Overrides section of the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug that would cause a crash when switching between Canvas and Components mode after deleting a previously selected Component.
    • Fixes a bug where background blurs were appearing on the Canvas with a slight grey tint.
    • Fixes an issue where corner radius handles on a rectangle would appear if your cursor was over its parent group.
    • Fixes a regression that could affect performance if multiple Editors were working on a complex document.
    • Fixes a bug that would snap Overlay previews incorrectly when pressing .
    • Fixes a bug where making a Symbol local or detaching it would reset or lose any applied overrides.
    • Fixes a bug where background blurs could show a black background in document previews.
    • Fixes a bug where, when using multiple opaque fills on top of each other on a layer, the occluded fills would still be visible at the layer edges.
    • Fixes an issue where Artboards with names ending with a number would have the number incremented, rather than appended to, when duplicating the Artboard.
    • Fixes a bug where copying the CSS attributes of a non-square layer that used a linear gradient would show the wrong gradient angle.
    • Fixes a bug where some plugins would not work in macOS Ventura beta.
    • Fixes a bug where overriding text directly on the Canvas could enlarge its font size.
    • Fixes an issue where icons for selected layers on the Layer List would not have the right color while performing a multi-selection.
    • Fixes an issue where swapping a Symbol instance inside a group would not correctly update the group’s bounds.
    • Fixes an issue where applying a Text Style to a layer in a group would not correctly update the group’s bounds.
  2. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Improvements and bug fixes This update brings a whole host of small improvements to make you more productive in Sketch — including faster ways to tidy and swap layers using Smart Distribute.

    What’s improved

    • When you hover over the Smart Distribute rearrange handle of a layer inside a tidy group, we now hide all the other visible handles, allowing you a clear view of your design.
    • When you select a layer which is part of a group with even spacing, you can now reorder it with Smart Distribute and adjust the spacing. Previously this was only possible if you selected the group itself first.
    • When you copy layers between Artboards, via the copy and paste commands or by dragging layers in the Layer List, we now preserve a layer’s original position more accurately.
    • In a multi-layer selection or group with uneven spacing between layers, you can now enter horizontal and/or vertical spacing values immediately, without having to press the Tidy button first.

    What’s changed

    • When using Smart Distribute, you’ll now see the spacing value immediately when you hover over the Smart Distribute spacing handle — not only after you click it.
    • We’ve made our context menus match the main menus, they now both use Bring Forward, Bring to Front, Send Backward and Send to Back.
    • When you rearrange layers within a Smart Distribute selection, the selections and placeholders that appear now use Sketch’s tint color, rather than the default blue.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a regression in the setOverrideValue method of the plugins API.
    • Fixes a bug where the Mac app would be slow to acknowledge updates to Workspace Libraries.
    • Fixes an issue with the Library API for Plugins where a refactor to improve compatibility with our iOS app had caused a regression.
    • Fixes a bug where a Symbol instance could accidentally have a blur applied to it, causing Sketch to crash.
    • Fixes a bug where switching from the Canvas to Components View and back again would clear a selected Component’s details from the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug where Artboards that had a background color and the “Include in export” option unchecked would display incorrectly on the Canvas in the web app.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped layers that moved from one Artboard to another via alignment actions from appearing on their new Artboard.
    • Fixes a bug where using Paste Here or Paste Over would not place the pasted layer in front of the selected layers.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from selecting a layer with no fill by clicking on the outer part of its border.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped an Overlay’s preview from updating correctly when you duplicated the trigger layer or Hotspot and changed its target.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Hotspots within a Symbol instance to become smaller than their original size.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Overlay previews to resize unexpectedly while zooming on the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug that caused an image with a non-normal blend mode to cause shadows and alpha masks to have the wrong opacity on the Canvas.
  3. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Duplicate Documents You can now duplicate Workspace documents to your drafts, right from the Workspace window. You’ll find this option by right/Control-clicking on a document’s thumbnail. When you duplicate a document, it won’t include any comments, version history or specific share settings, so you’ll have a clean slate to iterate from without disturbing the original design. You can also duplicate documents in the web app, including ones outside your Workspace that others have shared via a public link.
    • Align to reference object With this release, we’re giving you even more control over how you align multiple selections of layers. Now, you can click on any layer within a multi-layer selection to make it the reference object. When you use the alignment controls in the Inspector, all the layers within your selection will now align to that reference object. You can click on any other layer in your selection to make that the new reference object, or click again on the current reference object to deselect it.

    What’s improved

    • If you select a single layer and use the alignment controls in the Inspector, it will now align to its immediate parent (whether that’s a group, Artboard or combined shape). If you want to align a single layer to its Artboard rather than its immediate parent, hold down the ⌥ (Option) key.
    • The Workspace window now supports selecting multiple documents at the same time, making it easier for you to open, move and delete them in bulk.
    • You can now switch between the Design and Prototype tabs in the Inspector using the keyboard shortcuts Shift-Command-1 and Shift-Command-2, respectively. You’ll also find these options in the View menu.
    • We’ve made it easier to move shapes that have borders but no fills. You can now drag anywhere on that shape, including the non-filled area, to move it, rather than just on the border itself.
    • We’ve improved the accuracy of Shadows for paths with wider borders.
    • You can now adjust the Spread value for Shadows applied to text layers.
    • We now support negative spread values for inner shadows.

    What’s changed

    • Version 261 of the Abstract plugin has been marked as incompatible with Sketch because it is causing instability. Please update to the latest version of the plugin when available.
    • We’ve given color profiles a clean-up. Previously, we’d render Unmanaged documents based on your display’s settings, but exported them as sRGB. Now, we both render on the Canvas and export using the sRGB color profile by default (the Unmanaged setting is gone), unless you set your default color profile to P3 in the Canvas preferences.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that stopped saturation in background blurs behind an Overlay from showing in the Prototype player.
    • Fixes a bug that prevented tints from applying to shadows of layers within a group to which the tint was applied.
    • Fixes a bug that caused interactions you set to None to disappear completely. Now they’ll stick around.
    • Fixes an issue that stopped borders appearing if you added them to text that used underline or strikethrough decoration.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Layer and Page lists to unexpectedly scroll horizontally while you were scrolling vertically through them.
    • Fixes a bug that caused interactions to appear as active in the Prototype player even though their respective layers were hidden.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Artboard templates you dragged onto the Canvas from the Insert window to appear in the reverse (left-to-right) order of your selection.
    • Fixes a bug that allowed you to create an Overlay by linking a layer to itself.
    • Fixes a bug that meant the Prototype player would not always reflect the latest changes you made to Artboards.
    • Fixes a bug that caused unnecessary points to appear along paths that you had converted to outlines.
  4. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Overlays in prototypes You can now turn any Artboard into an Overlay and create interactions like sheets, popovers and modals in your prototypes. You can set the position of an Overlay relative to the screen it appears on or the layer that links to it. You can even ‘stack’ multiple Overlays, choose how they interact with each other, apply background styling, and even block background interactions. You can view prototypes with overlays on the Mac, web and our new iPhone app (but they will not work in the Mirror).
    • Prototyping improvements Along with Overlays, we’ve added a Prototype tab to the Inspector for all Prototyping-related controls. Switch to this new tab to see all prototype interactions in a document. Switching back to the Design tab will hide them until you select a layer. When you switch to the Prototype tab and select a layer, you’ll see a new + icon instead of the middle-right grab handle, click and drag on this to start creating a new prototype interaction.
    • Auto-download Libraries You can now set Libraries to automatically download whenever an update is available, so you can skip to the good part (reviewing and updating your Components). You’ll find the option for this in the Libraries Preferences pane.

    What’s improved

    • You can now drag images into Sketch and drop them onto existing image layers, or layers with image fills, to replace them.
    • We’ve improved the how we handle dashed outside borders as well as the PDF export quality of outside borders.
    • You can move your selection between documents in the Workspace window with the arrow keys on your keyboard.
    • You can now apply Background Blurs to semi-transparent bitmap image layers.
    • We’ve simplified the items for creating and applying masks in both the contextual and menu bar menus.
    • We now support the webp image format when you add a folder of images as a Data source.
    • The ⌥ modifier now works when resizing a line too, scaling it from the center like other elements.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes an issue where zooming in deeply, combined with a large radius group shadow, could cause edits to become very slow.
    • Fixes an issue where setting a blend mode for the first Fill of an Image Layer would cause the Replace image with Fill checkbox setting to be ignored.
    • Fixes a bug where in-Canvas editing of a Symbol instance would render the text twice.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Sketch to use a lot of memory loading prototypes in complex documents.
    • Fixes a bug that would lose Tint Overrides from a Symbol instance when viewed in the Sketch web app Inspector, exported via Zeplin or if all the Symbol contents are detached.
    • Fixes a bug where the Inspector would not refresh correctly after a small number of very specific actions.
    • Fixes an issue where an Artboard could not be created from a Layer selection if no default Artboard Templates are available.
    • Fixes a bug where a translucent shape with exactly one Fill and one Shadow would show the shadow through the fill, rather than being composited together.
    • Fixes an issue where Artboards would no longer be scrollable after changing their orientation to landscape.
    • Fixes a bug where setting Auto Link to Right Artboard on the rightmost Artboard in a document would lead to a blank screen during prototype playback.
    • Fixes a bug relating to how tint overrides are inherited in symbols with multiple layers of nesting. The bug would result in the tint value shown in the inspector not matching what was drawn on the canvas and trying to set the tint override via the Inspector could fail.
    • Fixes an issue where the operators b or t applied to Width/X and r or l applied to Height/Y were being incorrectly implemented. These invalid combinations are now ignored.
    • Fixes a bug that could result in artefacts on the Canvas for multiline text layers.
    • Fixes a bug where a Layer with an Angular Gradient fill would not always display correctly when a Mask is applied to it.
    • Fixes a bug where a multi-Layer selection, with both locked and unlocked Layers, couldn’t be resized if the Layer at the very bottom was locked.
    • Fixes an issue where the locking of rulers would affect all open documents, now the locking only affects the current document.
    • Fixes an issue where undoing a change inside a combined shape would not correctly update the shadows for the shape.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Flatten tool to produce too many control points.
  5. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Artboard Templates You can now turn any Artboard — and its content — into a template. Artboard Templates behave like any other Component, so you can share them as part of Libraries and reuse them across documents. When you select an Artboard, you’ll see the option to use it as a template in the Inspector. We’ve replaced the default Artboard Presets with a new Default Artboard Templates Library, and included a new Artboard Template Inspiration Library to show you what else they can do. Any custom Artboard Presets you created will migrate to Artboard Templates and appear as their own Library, too.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve added a presence popover to the grid view in the Workspace window. We always had this in the list view, but now it appears in the grid view, too. Hovering over the Editor’s name below the document’s name will show you everyone currently editing or viewing, or who last updated it.
    • You can now lock and unlock the proportions of an Artboard using the control between the Width and Height inputs in the Inspector, just like regular Layers.
    • You can now use all types of Layers (including images) as Alpha Masks. When you set a Layer to act as a Mask, Sketch will apply the most appropriate type of mask to use based on the Layer type and its fills.
    • We’ve added a Reset Ruler Origins option to the contextual menu when you Control-Click on the rulers. This option always existed in the View menu, but now it appears in the contextual menu, too.
    • When you create or duplicate an Artboard, we now place it below the current or original Artboard in the Layer List. This means Artboards will be arranged top-to-bottom, as you create them.
    • We’ve improved the appearance of read-only input fields in the Inspector to distinguish them from disabled fields.
    • Using Command-D to duplicate an Option-dragged Artboard will use the same offset for the duplicates. This was always the case for Layers, now it works for Artboards as well.
    • You can now access the Convert Symbol to Artboard option from the contextual menus when you have selected a Symbol source.
    • You can now use the keyboard to input double-digits to more accurately adjust the relative position of gradient stops for any Gradient fill in the Inspector.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that caused Text on Path to render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped us from remembering the position of the Prototype Preview window.
    • Fixes an issue where copied layers could be pasted in the wrong order.
    • Fixes a bug where Symbol instances would not update correctly when a Layer was moved from one Symbol to another in a Library.
    • Fixes an issue with Prototypes not showing Hotspots correctly for Layers within scrollable Artboards that have a fixed position.
    • Fixes a bug that caused multiple layers of text to appear when you edited text that had transformations applied within a Symbol instance.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the incorrect label to show for the initial Pixel Snapping mode in the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug where resetting overrides for scaled Symbol instances would produce unexpected results.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped Library preview thumbnails from updating in the Libraries Preferences pane.
    • Fixes an issue where the width or height of nested Symbol instances couldn’t be resized to less than 1 pixel.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Remove Unused Styles menu item to appear unavailable when you had selected a Group or Symbol instance.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Symbols you dragged from the Insert window onto an Artboard or Canvas to appear blank.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Size instance to fit content control in the Inspector to appear unpredictably.
    • Fixes a bug where a blank Artboard would not have its Expand/Collapse toggle control visible in the Layer List until content was added to it.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the shortcuts for switching between the Canvas (Control-1) and Components (Control-2) views from working or appearing in the View menu.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from double-clicking on the Canvas to leave vector editing mode.
    • Fixes a bug where invalid characters in a Workspace document name could cause saving issues, now we show an error if you try to save a document that contains unsupported characters to a Workspace.
    • Fixes a bug that caused columns in the Export Slice window to populate incorrectly if your scroll bars are set to always be visible.
    • Fixes a bug where, pasting a fill across multiple Layers and editing the fill in one Layer, could cause the fill of a different Layer to update incorrectly.
    • Fixes an issue that caused Color Variables to appear incorrectly in the color popover if you were using using a large collection of Color Variables.
    • Fixes a bug that ignored the Pixel Fitting preference for Text Layers using Auto Width and horizontally centered text. We now adjust the width of the Text layer to only place it on full pixels.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the WEBP option in the Format field of the Export panel to appear truncated.
  6. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug fixes Along with all the great features below, this release fixes a number of bugs, crashes and performance issues.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you worked with Symbols.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from being able to double-click on a nested Symbol instance to view its source.
    • Fixes a bug that caused slow performance.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Hotspot override option in the Inspector to disappear when you set it to None.
    • Fixes a bug that caused layers or Artboards you copied from Sketch and pasted into another app to appear as a blank image.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped some Workspace document updates from processing or appearing in the web app.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Artboards to appear at a low resolution in the prototype player.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur as we determined whether to highlight an item you selected in the Layer List.
    • Fixes a bug that caused performance issues when you used Sketch Mirror to view documents.

    What’s new

    • New prototype player We’ve been hard at work on some big improvements to Prototyping and it starts with this — a completely rewritten prototype player. With it, playing your prototypes should feel smoother, faster and more reliable. It also lays the groundwork for some great new features and improvements — look out for those in an upcoming update.

    What’s improved

    • You can now choose Auto Link to Right Artboard from the Prototype menu and create a link from your current Artboard, to the one immediately to the right of it. Better still, it will update dynamically and automatically if you switch the order of your Artboards. To link to the left Artboard instead, simply change the Artboard Export option under Preferences > Layers.
    • You can now use Command-Shift-D to duplicate a layer below the original. You can also hold Shift to access this option from the Edit menu. To move a layer you have selected from behind another layer, hold Option and Command then drag anywhere on the canvas.
    • We’ve added a new option to snap to quarter pixels when you’re working in vector editing mode. We also revamped its Inspector control — the new segmented control makes it easier to set a pixel snapping option and see which one you have selected.
    • When you export a single item, we now show its filename in the notification at the bottom of the window.
    • In the Save dialog, Command-Shift-D and Command-D now will set your Mac’s Desktop as the save location.
    • We’ve tweaked the heading styles and dividers in the Inspector to make each section’s hierarchy easier to understand.
    • You can now paste an image from another app directly onto a shape in Sketch to use it as an Image fill. You’ll find the Paste Image as Fill option by control-clicking on the Fills panel under Styles in the Inspector.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve updated the shortcut for Refresh Data. You will now need to use Control-Shift-D to refresh the Data on a selected layer.
    • We’ve updated the copy and changed a few things in the Libraries preferences panel. Now, to enable a Library, you can simply check the checkbox next to its name.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where trying to change a Symbol override from ”No Symbol” would not change anything on the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug where a Symbol with Smart layout properties, nested within a parent Symbol with same Smart Layout properties, would be positioned unexpectedly when overridden on the Instance level.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you opened a document from your Workspace and chose to keep local changes you made to an older version of that document while you were disconnected from the internet.
    • Fixes an issue where hidden Layers wouldn’t show the eye icon in the Layer List.
    • When you resize a Layer so that its bounds no longer sit within an Artboard, we now move it outside the Artboard in the Layer List, this means it becomes visible on the Canvas and can be selected.
    • When you use the tab key to navigate through the save dialog fields, the order should feel more logical now.
    • Fixes a bug where the resize handles could appear blurry at some zoom levels.
    • Fixes an issue with the rendering of background blurs, when they are masked by shapes other than rectangles, so you won’t unexpectedly see translucent areas.
    • Fixes an issue where the Layer › Layout menu would be available for all Artboards and not just Symbol sources.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the Inspector showing a mixed state for the Export group contents only option.
  7. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • New prototype player We’ve been hard at work on some big improvements to Prototyping and it starts with this — a completely rewritten prototype player. With it, playing your prototypes should feel smoother, faster and more reliable. It also lays the groundwork for some great new features and improvements — look out for those in an upcoming update.

    What’s improved

    • You can now choose Auto Link to Right Artboard from the Prototype menu and create a link from your current Artboard, to the one immediately to the right of it. Better still, it will update dynamically and automatically if you switch the order of your Artboards. To link to the left Artboard instead, simply change the Artboard Export option under Preferences > Layers.
    • You can now use Command-Shift-D to duplicate a layer below the original. You can also hold Shift to access this option from the Edit menu. To move a layer you have selected from behind another layer, hold Option and Command then drag anywhere on the canvas.
    • We’ve added a new option to snap to quarter pixels when you’re working in vector editing mode. We also revamped its Inspector control — the new segmented control makes it easier to set a pixel snapping option and see which one you have selected.
    • When you export a single item, we now show its filename in the notification at the bottom of the window.
    • In the Save dialog, Command-Shift-D and Command-D now will set your Mac’s Desktop as the save location.
    • We’ve tweaked the heading styles and dividers in the Inspector to make each section’s hierarchy easier to understand.
    • You can now paste an image from another app directly onto a shape in Sketch to use it as an Image fill. You’ll find the Paste Image as Fill option by control-clicking on the Fills panel under Styles in the Inspector.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve updated the shortcut for Refresh Data. You will now need to use Control-Shift-D to refresh the Data on a selected layer.
    • We’ve updated the copy and changed a few things in the Libraries preferences panel. Now, to enable a Library, you can simply check the checkbox next to its name.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where trying to change a Symbol override from ”No Symbol” would not change anything on the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug where a Symbol with Smart layout properties, nested within a parent Symbol with same Smart Layout properties, would be positioned unexpectedly when overridden on the Instance level.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you opened a document from your Workspace and chose to keep local changes you made to an older version of that document while you were disconnected from the internet.
    • Fixes an issue where hidden Layers wouldn’t show the eye icon in the Layer List.
    • When you resize a Layer so that its bounds no longer sit within an Artboard, we now move it outside the Artboard in the Layer List, this means it becomes visible on the Canvas and can be selected.
    • When you use the tab key to navigate through the save dialog fields, the order should feel more logical now.
    • Fixes a bug where the resize handles could appear blurry at some zoom levels.
    • Fixes an issue with the rendering of background blurs, when they are masked by shapes other than rectangles, so you won’t unexpectedly see translucent areas.
    • Fixes an issue where the Layer › Layout menu would be available for all Artboards and not just Symbol sources.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the Inspector showing a mixed state for the Export group contents only option.
  8. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    This release includes an update to our document model. If you open a local document using this version of the Mac app, it may lose data if someone with an earlier version of the Mac app opens it again. Workspace documents will be unavailable to open by anyone with an earlier version unless they download them first. Any changes they make will not update the Workspace document. For real-time collaboration, everyone will need to use the same version of the Mac app.

    What’s new

    • Bug fixes This release includes a few important bug fixes and tweaks to make sure everything runs smoothly. If you sent feedback about any of these — thank you!

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes an issue that could cause some documents to get stuck while they were processing.
    • Fixes a bug that could corrupt a document if you opened it after editing the document offline.

    What’s new

    • Improvements and bug fixes This update brings a whole host of small improvements to make your days more enjoyable and productive — from positioning layers relative to an Artboard’s edge with Inspector operators, to better icons for locked and hidden layers.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve made it easier to create a prototyping link to the previous Artboard or any specific Artboard when you have multiple layers and Artboards selected. Now, with multiple selections, you can choose any of the back or go to Artboard indicators.
    • We’ll now show a prompt when you try and enable a plugin that’s incompatible with the Mac app.
    • We now remember the position of the Preferences window, so it always opens where you last left it.
    • When you hover over a long Artboard name on the Canvas, we’ll show you a tooltip with its full name.
    • You can now add blurs to alpha masks and we’ll include them as part of the mask itself.
    • You can now use the Sides slider in the Inspector to set a polygon‘s minimum number of sides (three) — handy if you want to quickly create an equilateral triangle!
    • If you have a page selected, you can now rename a page via Edit > Rename or pressing R.
    • You can now precisely position a layer relative to an Artboard’s edge using the l, r, t, b, and c / m operators in the Inspector. For example, to place a layer 10 pixels from the right edge of its Artboard, you can set its X value to 10r. You can use these in both the X and Y fields to get things looking just right.
    • We’ll now show you if a Library is using a starred version and when it was last modified in the Libraries preferences panel.
    • Did you know you can copy layers or Artboards and paste them in any other app as an image? Now, if you have a high-density display, we‘ll export these images in 2x resolution, so they look sharp.
    • We’ve added states to the layer visibility and lock icons in the Layer List, so it’s easier than ever to know whether a layer is hidden, visible, locked or unlocked. Hovering over a visible layer shows a Hide Layer icon reflecting the layer’s visibility and holding shows a Lock Layer icon reflecting the lock state.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve made things more predictable when you insert a Symbol instance that contains a nested Symbol with Smart Layout properties that you have resized in the Symbol source. Now, the nested Symbol will keep its resized dimensions in both the Symbol source and instance.
    • We’ve made things more predictable when you resize a Symbol or Group that contains text layers with resizing constraints and auto width alignment properties. Previously, if the resizing constraints and alignment properties conflicted, resizing would change the alignment property to auto height or cause the text to flow outside of layer’s bounds. Now we block conflicting resizing restrictions and alignment properties to avoid these results.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where the background blur wouldn‘t appear in translucent layers with an opaque fill.
    • Fixes a bug where the Mac app would continue using system memory after you closed a document.
    • Fixes a bug where editing a Symbol Source’s content would not update any overrides in deeply nested instances until you reopened the document.
  10. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Improvements and bug fixes This release is all about fixing bugs and making small, quality-of-life improvements that add up to a better overall experience in Sketch. We’re working hard on new features and we can’t wait to share them with you soon.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve improved the way we handle variable fonts if you embed them in your document and now clearly identify them as being variable, rather than a specific weight.
    • When you right-click on a layer and open its contextual menu, holding down ⌥ turns the Move Forward and Move Backward options into Move to Front and Move to Back, respectively. If you have the items for Move Forward and Move Backward in your toolbar, we’ll update their icons to reflect this change in command when you hold ⌥ there too.
    • We now memorize the position of the Document Settings window, so it always opens where you last left it.

    What’s changed

    • The Move to Library plugin (version 2.2.9) is incompatible with Sketch.
    • We’ve given the Canvas icon in Preferences a refresh — it now reflects the one you see in the toolbar.
    • We renamed the Rename Layer menu item to Rename.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where the Mac app would continue using system memory after you closed a document.
    • Fixes a bug that would insert image data randomly even if you had unchecked the Insert Data at Random option. Now, Data you insert will follow the order in its source file.
    • Fixes a bug that could make scrolling the Canvas very slow if you were using a mouse with a physical scroll wheel.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause blocky artefacts to appear in shadows that contained a combination of different shadows and other elements.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Smart Distribute spacing handles to appear blurry or distorted.
    • Fixes a bug where rotated background blurs wouldn‘t render as expected in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug where the Mac app wouldn’t detect corrupted data in some parts of a document, which could lead to a crash later while editing the document. Now, we detect this right when you open the document and give you the opportunity to fix it.
    • Fixes a bug where editing a Symbol Source’s content would not update any overrides in deeply nested instances until you reopened the document.
    • Fixes a bug where applying border end decorations to a line or open path with multiple borders would only show one of the borders.
    • Fixes a bug where the search field in the Layer List wouldn’t show a focus ring when you selected it.
    • Fixes a bug that mean any custom shortcuts you added via System Preferences would require you to select their parent menu before they would work.
  11. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fix This release fixes a bug that caused empty Symbols to appear broken. We’re sorry for any impact this had on your workflow.

    What’s new

    • New project permissions You can now choose whether a project is visible to your whole Workspace, or just the members you invite. You’ll find this option in a project’s share settings in the web app. In the Mac app, look for the lock icon in the Workspace window to quickly identify projects with restricted access. And don’t forget, you can still move documents, rename a project, copy its link or open it in the web app, right from the Workspace window.

    What’s changed

    • Invision Panels version 1.0.145 is no longer compatible with Sketch. Please make sure you update this plugin to the latest version to avoid any issues.
    • Say hello to some new faces! We‘ve updated our Faces data source to include a new set of images.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that could cause the color picker to not pick the correct color from a text layer.
    • Fixes a bug with SVG import where style attributes could be ignored for certain paths.
    • Fixes a bug where the Preview window for prototypes would hide the share button at smaller widths.
    • Fixes a bug where the keyboard shortcut to pick a fill color within the Bitmap editor would not use the color you picked.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Text on Path to move unexpectedly if you converted it to outlines.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you pasted malformed SVG code into a document.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when selecting a font in the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug where keyboard shortcuts for various View > Zoom To options would stop working.
    • Fixes an issue where icons in the Insert window could end up with the wrong size after switching screen resolutions.

  13. Requires macOS Big Sur (11.0.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Improvements and Bug Fixes This release focuses on smaller fixes and updates that make Sketch better to use every day. We’ve also included a small round of Prototyping improvements (with plenty more on the way).

    What’s improved

    • When you grab and drag prototyping interactions on the Canvas, you’ll now only select interactions with the same destination Artboard, even if you have selected multiple layers.
    • We’ve added an extra option for Hotspot layers to the View menu. Now you can choose to either show or hide Hotspots.
    • We’ve made it easier to create prototypes. You no longer need to select a layer first to start creating a prototype!
    • You can now override any prototype interaction in a Symbol instance. Previously this was only possible with Hotspots, but we’ve opened that up for Links as well.
    • We’ve improved shadow rendering for groups, making them faster and visible even when deeply zoomed in.
    • We’ve improved the visibility of prototype links. Now, you can either choose to see all links for a prototype or only those related to the selected layer(s) from the View menu.
    • When exporting blurs, we now match the scale of the export. This way, you can export at high scales and blurs won‘t appear pixelated when you zoom in.

    What’s changed

    • The Runner plugin version 1.1.9 is incompatible with Sketch 84. You can still enable it manually in Sketch Preferences > Plugins if you want, but it could cause some instability.
    • A friendly reminder that we’ve changed the minimum system requirements to Big Sur (11.0) from version 84 onward. You can download previous versions of the Mac app (with support for older operating systems) from our updates page.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur when closing a document.
    • Fixes a bug where part of the Prototyping section of the Inspector would disappear when adding a new Link or Hotspot.
    • Fixes a bug that could hide the Artboard’s title in the prototype’s Preview window if the name was too long or the window too small.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when setting a negative spread value for a Component’s inner shadow.
    • Fixes a bug that could create a gap in a prototype link if you added an Artboard over the link and then moved it.
    • We’ve fixed a bug that stopped you from selecting layers in a combined shape when double-clicking on it.
    • We’ve reduced the amount of system memory used when inserting large Symbols at higher zoom levels.
    • Fixes a bug where highly saturated blurred layers would sometimes not render correctly.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause rounded ends in masked paths to appear clipped when exporting them to SVG.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when saving or opening a document placed in a location that wasn‘t writable.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause nested Symbols with Smart Layout to behave unexpectedly.
  14. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This release includes a handful of bug fixes. If you sent in feedback about any of these — thank you!

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that wouldn‘t respect your previous document‘s window size when creating a new document or opening your document again.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause masked layers to display incorrectly if you were using a layer with opaque outside borders as a mask.
  15. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This release focuses on fixing a number of crashes and bugs. Thanks for all your reports and feedback!

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where custom Artboard size presets wouldn‘t appear.
    • We’ve fixed a bug that could cause the Mac app to crash when clicking on a filtered layer type in the Layer’s List search bar.
  16. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Corner Controls and Styles You can now adjust the corner radius of rectangles on the Canvas: drag a corner handle to control all corners with the same size, hold ⌘ to control a single corner, or ⌥ to control all corners at once. We’ve also added four individual input fields in the Inspector for each corner in the rectangle. Finally, we’ve introduced new Corner Styles: in addition to Rounded and Smooth, you can now use the Angled, Inside Square, and Inside Arc styles.

    What’s improved

    • You can now style corners on triangles, stars, polygons and closed paths directly from the Corners panel in the Inspector. These shapes support our brand new Corner Styles too — try them out!
    • We’ve given the segmented controls in the Inspector a makeover. They’re no longer colored and instead match the appearance of buttons, making them less distracting.
    • You can now set Artboards as click targets in a prototype. This way, you don‘t have to add hotspot layers anymore when you just want to show a simple flow or presentation.
    • When creating exportable layers or slices with prefixes, we now give you more control over the prefix’s placement in the file name if the layer name contains a slash (/). With the new Primary Prefix option, the prefix will appear in front of the full path instead of the last path component only.
    • In the Recent documents view in the Workspace window you can now search a document by the author of the latest version. Of course, you can still search a document by its title.

    What’s changed

    • Version 83 is the final Mac app release to support macOS Catalina (10.15.0). When we release version 84, the minimum system requirements will change to 11.0 (Big Sur).
 You can download previous versions of the Mac app (with support for older operating systems) from our updates page.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur when leaving vector editing mode after unhiding the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug where we would remind you to embed fonts when saving a local document in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug where you wouldn‘t be able to perform a Union operation on adjacent, but not intersecting, shapes.
    • When adding a prototype link on the Canvas, we‘ll now show you target icons next to your Artboard so it‘s easier to link to the previous Artboard or to another page.
    • Fixes an issue where we wouldn‘t give you the option to embed fonts when saving a Workspace document via the Collaboration toolbar item.
    • Fixes a bug where saving a Workspace document you had opened for the first time would prompt you to embed fonts even if all fonts were already embedded.
    • Fixes a bug that could ignore Text on Path when performing boolean operations.
    • Fixes a bug where you couldn‘t Command-click to select masked layers.
    • Fixes a bug where the appearance of shadows with non-zero spread values on lines wouldn’t match the line’s end cap type.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause a rotated layer using a background blur to render the blur in a washed out way.
    • Fixes a bug that could display the Style section in the Inspector incorrectly if editing a vector with the Inspector hidden.
    • We’ve matched the miter limit for outside and inside borders to that which center borders use. This way you’ll see more predictable results when working with shapes or text with pointy edges.
    • Fixes a bug that wouldn‘t respect the Fix Size setting when using Smart Layout.
    • When opening or creating a document, we’ll now place the Mac app window in the center of your screen.
    • Fixes a bug where angular gradient fills wouldn‘t be included when exporting to SVG.
    • We’ve improved rendering accuracy for shape layers used as a mask with center or inside borders so that you always see the right opacity.
    • Fixes a bug where we would not show the distance value for the spacing between selected layers in the Inspector if the selection included a line with another layer that was positioned along the same axis as the line.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the tabs in Preferences to show unexpected window sizes.
    • Fixes a bug that wouldn‘t let you delete Components in the Components View when filtered by a search term.
  17. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fix We’ve fixed a bug that could cause Text Styles in Symbol overrides to display incorrectly on the Canvas.
  18. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    Document model change: In this release, we’ve updated our document model. Once you save a Workspace document in the latest version of the Mac app, anyone opening the document in Sketch 81.1 or earlier will only be able to save the file locally. Any changes they make will not update the document in your Workspace, and if you want to collaborate with them in real-time they’ll also need to update to 82.

    What’s new

    • Introducing Components web view With Components web view, you can open up your libraries and make them easier for everyone to understand. You can now browse Symbols, Color Variables, Layer Styles and Text Styles, jump or search for specific components and use the menu on the left-hand side to navigate components in more detail.

    What’s improved

    • You can now send Workspace documents and projects you no longer need to Trash right from the  Workspace window.
    • We‘ve improved the rendering of text layers and complex shapes when using inside or outside borders.
    • You can now change prototyping targets directly in the Canvas by dragging the link arrow to the Artboard you want.
    • We’ve optimized the way fonts are embedded when exporting Artboards to PDF so the size of your exported PDF is smaller.
    • Embedding fonts in Workspace documents is now much easier. When you save a document to a Workspace for the first time, or after adding new custom fonts, you can quickly select which fonts you want to embed — or all at once — with a single click. Even better, the app remembers your choice for each Workspace, so you don’t have to do this for every new document. As always, make sure that you have all the necessary licenses, rights and permissions to embed and redistribute any fonts you want to use.

    What’s changed

    • If you‘re using Abstract, please make sure to update to their latest version to ensure everything works smoothly.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where a rounded corner used along a curved point could cause the Mac app to hang and use too much memory.
    • Fixes a bug in vector editing mode that would align an entire layer instead of the selected points.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the Canvas to become unresponsive when rendering shadows for complex paths.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the Mac app to become unresponsive while rendering complex combined shapes with non-intersecting paths.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause items in the sidebar bar to not display correctly if the sidebar was hidden when changing appearance mode.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause input fields to defocus when editing overrides.
    • Fixes a bug where the export options could appear clipped or could cover the folder navigation view entirely.
  19. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fix Fixes a crash that could be caused by an InVision plugin incompatibility.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where Foresight could display an incorrect preview when multiple layers were selected at the same time.
    • Fixes a bug where documents could render incorrectly when text was used as a mask.
  20. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Foresight We’ve added a feature that helps you preview the outcome of some actions. Now, when you hover over the alignment buttons at the top of the Inspector, or as you type new values in the X, Y, Width, or Height fields, you’ll see an outline on the Canvas that represents the position and dimension of the layers if you apply that alignment or value. This also works if you use the ⌥ modifier for alignment, or use math operations in the inputs.

    What’s improved

    • When you create your first prototype link in a document, we’ll now mark that Artboard as a Start Point, so you can easily play it in the web app.
    • You can now designate an Artboard as a start point for a Prototype through the Inspector by toggling the Set as prototype start point checkbox.
    • We’ve improved the way Sketch draws rounded corners on curved sections of a path.
    • We removed the checkbox about sharing usage analytics in Sketch because we stopped collecting this information altogether.
    • You can now upload a local Sketch document to your Workspace from the Recent Documents tab in the Workspace window by dragging it into a Project.
    • We’ve made it easier to share a prototype from local documents. Now, when you share your prototype, you’ll be prompted to save it to your Workspace so you can easily share it with everyone you need.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where converting Text on Path to outlines would skip over emojis.
    • Fixes a bug on macOS Monterey that could cause prototypes to not work properly if Live Text was enabled.
    • Fixes a bug where newly inserted Components would not be selected if they were inserted via the Insert menu.
    • Fixes a bug where paths would be ignored when converting Text on Path to outlines.
    • Fixes a bug where editing a Text Style would not update the text in some Symbol instances using that Text Style.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause SVG files to import incorrectly into the Mac app.
    • Fixes a rare crash that could occur after adding a new copy of an image to a document.
    • Fixes a bug where dashed borders applied to an ellipse would differ in appearance when exported to SVG.
    • Fixes a bug that wouldn’t let you scroll to the end of the Layer List.
    • Fixes an issue where images placed inside a rotated Group or Symbol could appear pixelated.
    • Fixes an issue where an image with a semi-translucent gradient fill could appear incorrectly when exported to PDF.
    • Fixes a bug where the appearance of dashed borders could change when converted to outlines.
  21. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes Fixes a crash that could occur when opening documents containing invalid data.
  22. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Improvements and Bug Fixes This update brings a bunch of small improvements and bug fixes, including the ability to use the width, height and position operators (w,h,x,y) as stand-ins for the width, height, x, and y of one or more selected elements.

    What’s improved

    • When typing a new position or dimensions in the Inspector, you can now use the operators w, h, x, and y as stand-ins for the width, height, X, and Y of the selected element(s). Try setting a rectangle’s height to w to quickly make it a square. These operators work with maths too; try setting the width to 2 * w to double the layer’s current width.
    • You can now click to select an element inside a selected Artboard without having to deselect the Artboard first.
    • Alpha masks will now match the scale and zoom values you use in the Canvas — and when exporting.
    • We’ve improved the way we display progress updates when opening a Workspace document.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where configuring an Artboard to have a fully transparent background color would cause the contents of the Artboard to be hidden.
    • Fixes a bug where the arrangement of characters in flipped Text Layers would be inverted when converted to outlines.
    • Fixes a bug where text could appear duplicated on the Canvas when editing text overrides with text transforms or emojis.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when scaling down images.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause certain documents not to open in the Mac app if they were saved in a much older version of the Mac app.
    • Angular gradients will now match the resolution you’ve set in your document when exporting.
    • Fixes a bug where, when using dark mode in macOS Monterey, dark Text Styles could be displayed as light text against a light background in the Components Popover.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the cursor not to update when adjusting the width of the sidebar.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause shadows within instances placed on the same page as their Symbol Source to appear clipped while editing the Source.
    • Fixes a bug where you couldn’t preview a prototype in macOS Monterey if the Live Text feature was enabled in the System Preferences.
    • Fixes a bug where fonts in Library Symbols could render differently between local and Workspace versions of the document.
    • Fixes a bug where your selection in the Layer List could display some elements incorrectly if there was no scrollbar.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when dragging export previews from the Inspector.

    What’s new

    • Keyboard navigation & Bug fixes In this update we've improved navigating layers with the keyboard by adding and exposing more shortcuts in the Edit > Select menu. We have also fixed some bugs and made improvements in Exporting and copying CSS attributes to the clipboard.

    What’s improved

    • You can now lock and unlock the proportions of a layer with the shortcut ⌥⌘L or the menu item Layer > Transform > Lock Proportions when resizing.
    • We’ve added shortcuts to open the grid settings sheet (⌃⌘G) and the layout settings sheet (⌃⌘L).
    • You can now select all layers, including locked and hidden ones, in the Edit > Select menu or with the shortcut ⌥⌘A.
    • We’ve added actions in the Edit > Select menu to help you navigate layers with the keyboard. We’ve also added the option to jump to the Next Artboard (End or fn →) and Previous Artboard (Home or fn ←) in the View menu.
    • Now, when you double-click on a document thumbnail in the Workspace window and don’t have editing permissions for that document, we’ll instead open it for you to view in the web app.
    • We’ve improved PNG exports, now opaque bitmaps no longer include an alpha channel.
    • You can now see emojis in other Editors’ cursors along with their name when collaborating in real-time.
    • When you enter vector editing mode, we no longer select a point by default. This way, you won’t accidentally close the shape when you then select the last point in the path.
    • When using the Duplicate or Save As commands, we’ll now set the suggested save location to be the same one as the original document.

    What’s changed

    • When you delete a layer within a group, we now select the layer that comes after it in the hierarchy. This way, any new layer you add will be inside that group.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur if a layer used as a mask had an effectively zero size.
    • Fixes a bug where you were able to move locked Layers with the mouse when they were selected.
    • Fixes a bug where copying CSS attributes for gradient points would list them in the wrong order.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur with frequent Canvas refreshes, such as zooming in and out of a document repeatedly.
    • Fixes a bug where fonts might not embed at all if you embedded one font after the other too quickly.
    • Fixes a bug where grouped layers using inner shadows could render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug where doing Select All with a multi-selection across different groups would end up selecting more elements than expected.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the Mac app to hang when trying to load a long list of overrides on some Macs.
    • Fixes a bug that would prevent you from dragging an export preview from the Inspector when its name contained a backslash.
    • Fixes a bug where an image fill could display incorrectly if you had previously reduced its size.
    • Fixes a bug that could cut off the Color Popover in the Inspector when opening it close to the bottom of the screen.
    • Fixes a bug where toolbar spacing distribution was not correctly maintained when you hid the Layer List.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the Fonts tab in the Documents Settings window to not update reliably.
    • Fixes a few bugs where copying CSS attributes could result in styles being copied with the wrong alpha values.
    • Fixes a bug where using the Zoom to Artboard command (or ⌘4) could change a layer’s opacity if you were selecting a layer outside of an Artboard.
    • Fixes an issue where, when exporting a slice with a prefix from the Layer List, the prefix would be applied as a suffix instead.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause emojis within text layers to disappear if you applied a non-solid color fill (like a gradient) to the text layer.
    • Fixes a bug where copying CSS attributes of fills that included radial or angular gradients would be incorrect.
  25. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • macOS Monterey Fixes a possible crash when using OpenType features on macOS Monterey.
  26. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Workspace window We've renamed the Documents window, and made it better than ever! You can now see documents in your Workspace in a new list view. We've also improved the Recent Documents view, which now shows who's editing a Workspace document and its sharing settings.

    What’s improved

    • If you have locked layers selected when you Select All ( A) we no longer deselect them in the process.
    • You can now navigate layers from the keyboard by pressing Tab or Tab, even when nothing is selected.
    • You can now easily detach all Symbols and Nested Symbols at once from the menu.
    • You can hold + click to add extra elements to your selection. Now, when diving into groups, you can also hold + double-click to reach into elements nested inside them.
    • You could always deselect your currently selected layers with the Escape key, but this would not work for groups. Now, we’ve added a proper keyboard shortcut that always works: Esc
    • You could always step through a layer’s hierarchy on the Canvas with the Enter, Tab and Escape keys. Now, we also support multiple selections, so you can step into multiple groups at the same time.

    What’s fixed

    • You can now right-click a selected and locked layer to bring up the contextual menu without losing your selection.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause text layers with baseline adjustments to render incorrectly.

    • Fixes a bug where flipped or rotated lines wouldn’t appear correctly when exporting to SVG.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the Canvas to not refresh correctly when toggling the “Ignore Underlying Mask” option after having adjusted the zoom level.
    • Fixes a bug where floating Artboard rows in the Layer List would appear fully transparent and show the layer underneath it when the Mac app was in the background.
    • Fixes a bug where Inspector values for Symbols were not cleared with Undo and could apply to new Symbols.
    • Fixes a bug where Sketch could build up too much memory over time when resizing groups.
    • Fixes an issue where, when exporting a slice with a slash in its name, the prefix would be applied to the name of the new folder rather than the name of the file.
    • Fixes a bug where copying CSS attributes for layers with 0.5px wide borders could incorrectly set the border width to 0px in the copied CSS code.
  27. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Saving you a few clicks! As you know, you can dive deeper into groups by double-clicking them. In this release, we’ve made that a little bit faster. Now, after you’ve double-clicked the first group on the Canvas, quickly following up with single clicks will dive down deeper. Faster than ever!

    What’s improved

    • We’ve added new Artboard presets for the new Apple products.
    • When you export a document we’ll show you a little bar at the bottom of the Canvas so you can jump right to where your download is in your computer. This bar now disappears after 10 seconds and we’ll never show more than one.
    • Did you know you can use math in most text fields in Sketch? In this update, we’ve added support for exponents (aka powers) with the ^ sign.
    • We’ve improved the way Linked Data applies to nested Symbols so that you no longer have to closely mimic the layer hierarchy in your JSON file.

  31. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Document Settings window With this update, we’re introducing a new Document Settings window (you can access it from any document via File > Document Settings…). This new window brings together some document-specific settings and preferences that were previously spread across different locations. For now, this includes a document’s color profile, missing or embedded fonts, and Assistants. We’ll be introducing more helpful document settings and preferences here in the future.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve added an extra option for Prototyping Links and Hotspots in the View menu. Now you can choose to either show all, hide all or only show them when you select a related layer, group or Artboard.

    What’s changed

    • If you use a Color Variable for the color of a text layer and then create a new text layer in the same document, your new text layer will also use that Color Variable. Previously, new text layers would use the same color but not the Color Variable itself.
    • Changing the hex value of a color in the color picker will no longer reset the alpha value to 100%. Instead, it will preserve whatever alpha value you had set for that color before.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that meant applying Linked Data to deeply nested Symbols would not work as expected.
    • Fixes a few bugs that could cause the Layer List to behave unexpectedly and cause the app to become unstable.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if the alignment value for a text layer contained invalid data.

    • Fixes a bug that stopped combined shapes from correctly reverting to their original colors if you undid the combine step.
    • Fixes a bug that meant any changes you made to a layer using the steppers in the height and width fields of the Scale tool would not apply after you pressed Finish.
    • Fixes a bug that meant if you deleted the last component in the Components View and then added a new one, it would not appear until you switched away and back to that view.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause SVG exports of open paths with borders to render incorrectly in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Symbols with Smart Layout properties and hidden, nested Symbols to be an incorrect height.
    • Fixes a bug where Control-clicking on items in the Components View and Insert Window would not work in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug that caused rendering issues for shadows that you applied to multiple nested groups.
    • Fixes a bug that meant Tints wouldn’t immediately apply to layers with blurs.
    • Fixes a bug that meant ruler guides would not update their color reliably after you changed them.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the app to crash if you introduced certain images to your documents (e.g. via pasting onto the Canvas).

    What’s new

    • Improvements and Bug Fixes This update brings a whole host of small improvements and bug fixes, including the ability to move documents to and from Projects in the Documents window.

    What’s improved

    • You can now move documents between Projects within your Workspace, right from the Documents window in the Mac app. Simply drag-and-drop a document’s thumbnail onto a Project in the sidebar, or control-click on a thumbnail and choose Move to Project… from the contextual menu.
    • We’ve added a new “Shared with Me” tab to the Documents window for each of your Workspaces. Here, you’ll see any documents that have been shared with you in that Workspace — whether you’re a Workspace Guest or a full member.
    • We’ve increased the size limit for embedding fonts to 200MB — ideal if you like big fonts (and you cannot lie about it).
    • We’ve improved the accuracy of angular gradients for layers with a non-even width or height.
    • You can now enter presentation mode (by pressing Cmd + .) while you’re following someone’s cursor during a real-time collaboration session.
    • We’ve given text properties in the Inspector a spring clean and swapped the Size and Color fields. This should make it easier to click and drag to adjust text size quickly.

    What’s fixed

    • A huge thanks to all of you who have sent reports and helped us get to the bottom of various performance issues in recent updates. This update fixes many of those issues and we’re continuing to work hard on this.
    • Fixes a bug where text layers with particular styling, and only whitespace content (e.g. via overrides), could result in that layer’s styling affecting a larger area than it should.
    • Fixes the Artboard preset size for the 10.9” iPad Air (it was 840x1180 but should have been 820x1180).
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if a plugin attempted to show a message to you when no documents were open.
    • Fixes a bug where the View in Browser and Copy Link contextual menu items didn’t work for projects in the Documents window.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Libraries in Workspaces that you were invited to as a Guest to disappear after you downloaded them.
    • Fixes a bug where selecting many large Artboards would cause performance issues.
    • Fixes a bug that meant the Delete and Rename options for your My Drafts project were active in the contextual menu of the Documents window. You couldn’t actually delete or rename My Drafts, so we made them inactive.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the app to become unresponsive if you attempted to export a layer named with a forward slash (/) only.
    • Fixes a bug that made it possible to edit the name of your My Drafts project.
    • Fixes a bug that deselected your Artboard after you converted it into a Symbol.
    • Fixes a bug that would remove the layers within a combined shape (and the shape itself) when you used the Make Grid handle to duplicate the layers within that shape.
    • Fixes a bug that meant our real-time collaboration feature would ignore any macOS proxy settings you had set up.

  38. Requires macOS Catalina (10.15.0) or newer

    What’s new

    • Rendering and performance improvements This release includes a whole host of rendering and performance improvements. Lots of them are subtle, but they all add up to a better experience. You’ll notice things feel more responsive when you move Symbols and Nested Symbols around the canvas, as well as during exports and saving documents to your Workspace.
    • Data improvements We’ve added a new option to the Data menu to choose whether data you insert is picked at random or not. If you uncheck this Insert Data at Random option, Data you insert will follow the order in its source file. We’ve also added support for nested data within Linked Data (JSON) sources. Nested data from a Linked Data source will appear inside a group when you add it to your canvas.

    What’s improved

    • You’ll now see image shadows at all zoom levels, where previously they’d disappear as you zoomed in close.
    • We heard from a few of you who really missed the dedicated zoom controls in the Big Sur toolbar, so we’ve brought them back! You’ll be able to add them by Control-clicking on your toolbar and choosing Customize Toolbar….
    • We’ve added an @3x option for flattening bitmaps to the Layer preferences panel.
    • Fixes a bug where a layer with a blur with a 0.5 radius would appear unblurred.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve given the Assistants UI and layout a fresh lick of paint for Big Sur.
    • Hey night owls, we’ve made a few tweaks to some colors in dark mode. Nothing major, but subtle things that add up to a more pleasant experience. Enjoy!
    • We’ve made some changes to how we generate outside borders which improves things for complex shapes.
    • We’ve tweaked the copy in our notifications to make it clearer when Library and Component updates are available.
    • We’ve increased the size of Artboard names on the Canvas so they should be easier to read from a distance now.

    What’s fixed

    • This release fixes a number of bugs that caused issues with Component and Library updates. This includes seeing a Component/Library update notification when there were none available, not seeing a notification when there were updates available, and being unable to update Components/Libraries. Thanks for all your reports and we’re sorry for the impact that this has had on your workflows!
    • Fixes a bug where applying blend modes could cause Tints to be ignored.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you set an extremely large shadow offset value.
    • Fixes a bug that caused some Components not to update correctly in your documents, which also meant you’d see a recurring updates notification.

    • Fixes a bug that could causes styles within Library Components to become unlinked after you applied Library and Components Updates in documents that used that Library.
    • Fixes a bug where we would not detect and replace an existing local Library if you uploaded it to a Workspace. This meant that any documents that used Components from that Library would still be linked to the local version, instead of the one in your Workspace.
    • Fixes a bug that caused layers with multiple, blended inner shadows to render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug that would prevent you from adding a JSON file as a Linked Data source if the file’s extension was capitalized.
    • Fixes a bug that caused shadows with negative spread to render incorrectly on layers with gradient or image fills.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped Workspace documents from opening and instead showed a “The file doesn’t exist” alert if you kept your macOS Home directory on an external drive.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you clicked Return to Instance while using the Scale tool.
    • Fixes a bug that caused shadows for text-on-path layers to appear flipped upside down.
    • Fixes a bug that caused inner shadows on overlapping shapes to render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug where inner shadows on a mask layer could appear darker than they should.
    • Fixes a bug that caused blurred layers to lose some of their details if you used them as a mask.
    • Fixes a bug that meant a text-on-path layer could cause other text layers in the same group to render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug that caused layers behind a background blur to render incorrectly when you rotated them.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped Color Adjustment changes from updating in the Inspector when you used the Undo command.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause angular gradients to appear pixelated.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Fix position when scrolling setting to become unchecked if you applied it to a Symbol that you later detached.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause poor performance when you selected large text layers.
    • Fixes a bug where applying a shadow with a negative spread to a shape with translucent fills could cause the shadow to be clipped at its outside edges.
    • Fixes a bug that meant the hover selection color would not match the accent color you set in System Preferences until you relaunched Sketch.
    • Fixes a bug that caused shapes with fills, smooth corners and outside borders to render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug that caused SVG exports of layers with tints to have incorrect colors.
    • Fixes a bug that caused text layers to move unexpectedly if you used Cmd+drag to zoom in or out as you edited them.
  39. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Crash and Bug Fixes This release focuses on fixing a number of crashes and bugs. Thanks for all your reports and feedback!

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could happen when you were editing documents with lots of document windows and/or Tabs open.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped a public Cloud Library from installing or caused it to disappear if your License Key and Sketch account used different emails.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the override reset control from appearing and disappearing at the right times in the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug that unlinked Library styles from Components after you accepted updates to that Component and Library in your document.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped some text decoration attributes from updating correctly in the Inspector.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you set the dimensions to be exceptionally large.
  40. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Crash and Bug Fixes This release fixes a bug that caused Symbols to detach from their parent Libraries in documents you downloaded and re-uploaded to Cloud. It also fixes a crash that occurred if you enabled Libraries with embedded fonts.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you tried to use the Make Grid tool with a set of layers in different groups.
    • Fixes a bug where saving a Library file would show an incorrect Autosave warning.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you scaled a group of layers and then undid that action.
    • Fixes a bug were the Recents section in Documents window and File menu would still show files from your Cloud workspace, even after you’d cleared them.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped some Data Plugins from showing you a preview of content as you inserted it.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you enabled Libraries with embedded fonts.
  41. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Starred updates With this release, we’re introducing Starred updates. You can now highlight important updates, control who sees your document’s full version history and choose which Library updates roll out to everyone. Read our documentation to see how Starred updates work.
    • Linked Data You can now use JSON files as Data sources to apply matching information to your designs. To get started, simply name layers in your document to match the keys in your JSON file. Once you’ve added your JSON file as a Data source, you’ll find it under a new Linked Data section of the Insert > Data menu. You can also choose Insert > Data and click on a Linked Data source to insert a pre-populated set of layers.

    What’s improved

    • When you use the Make Grid tool or handle, we’ll pay closer attention to the existing spacing between layers you’ve selected and use that wherever we can. This one is hard to describe, but it just feels more ‘right’ — try it out!
    • When you create a group where layers do not sit on whole pixels, we’ll make the group’s bounds fit a little tighter around that content. This only affects new groups and any existing groups you edit with this version of Sketch. This should also fix an issue where some Artboard exports were a pixel wider or taller than their original Artboard.
    • If you’ve asked us to flip the behaviour for holding Command and scrolling to zoom in or out, this one is for you. You’ll find the option to do just that in Sketch’s Canvas preferences. Happy scroll-zooming!

    What’s changed

    • We’ve updated our iOS App Icon Template to remove the mask that was being applied on exports.
    • When you resize multiple layers, we no longer round those individual layers to the nearest pixel. Now, they will perfectly maintain their distance between each other, instead of shifting slightly in some cases. We’ll still round the outer edges of your selection to the nearest pixel, and if you want to round each individual layer you can do this via Arrange > Round to Pixel.
    • Command-O will now reveal the Documents window so you can easily access documents in your Workspace(s). Shift-Command-O now opens the System’s file browser to choose a local document. You can override this in your macOS System Preferences, if you need to.
    • We’ve made it clearer if Components belong to your current document when you select and switch between them in the Inspector.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that caused the Recent Documents view in the Documents window to appear blank when you signed in with your Sketch account.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur on the macOS 11.3 Beta, if you opened the Plugins pane in Sketch’s Preferences.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you copied groups of PNGs that contained indexed colors.
    • Fixes a bug where reducing the file size of some bitmaps could cause some white areas in them to change to cyan.
    • Fixes a bug that could make Sketch become unresponsive when trying to offset a path that had been rotated before.
    • Fixes a bug where document placeholders in Documents window would not update when you switched between dark and light mode.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause a letter to appear inside the shape of the icon when using icon fonts with a fill or when converting them into outlines.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the editing area for page names to appear wider than the page name pill itself in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug that meant inner borders with gradients could render incorrectly on certain shapes.
    • Fixes a bug that caused text on a path to display incorrectly or disappear if it was part of a Symbol instance that you scaled up or down.
    • Fixes a bug that caused previews in the Components View to display colors in the wrong color space.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the wrong document thumbnail and sidebar item to appear selected when you opened the Documents Window using File > Cloud > Show in Documents Window from an open document.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Symbol overrides menus to show different sized symbols, even if the option to only show the same size Symbols was enabled, in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug that placed new vector points incorrectly on very small Artboards, if there were other Artboards nearby.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Libraries to show as “not found” in Preferences after you’d made an edit to them and saved the Library document.
    • Fixes a bug that meant text alignment controls wouldn’t immediately show as enabled after you changed a text layer’s alignment type to be Fixed Size.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Point Types you selected in the Inspector to appear deselected if you clicked on it multiple times.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the position overlays for rulers to appear slightly offset from the ruler markers themselves.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the length field in the Inspector to stop updating if you selected multiple lines and adjusted them.
    • Fixes a bug that drew an Artboard at an angle, if you drew it within an angled, nested group.
    • Fixes a bug that would enable the Original Size button in the Inspector when you dragged an image onto the dock icon, even when the image hadn’t been scaled in any way.
    • Fixes a bug that meant Symbols at the same level would not appear in the overrides menu if they were part of a Library nested one or more levels down from the current Library.
    • Fixes a bug that corrupted layer names and could cause a crash when you converted text layers that contained SF Symbols to outlines and exported them.
    • Fixes a bug that prompted you to replace missing fonts for Library Components in your documents. Now we’ll prompt you to replace or embed missing fonts in the original Library document instead.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you tried to edit a text layer that used the Chivo Black Italic font.
    • Fixes a bug that caused SVG code you copied from a layer’s contextual menu to also include code for any overlapping layers.
    • Fixes a bug that would revert Sketch to trial mode, even if you were signed in with a Sketch Account and had access to the Mac app, if you unlinked a license key while offline.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped text Symbols from scaling correctly using the Scale tool if you had applied a Text Style override to them.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that caused poor performance for documents with missing fonts.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the preview within the color picker’s loupe to be blurry when hovering over a text or shape layer.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from being able to access shared Libraries.
  46. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes We hope you’re enjoying our Big Sur UI refresh. This release includes a handful of bug fixes and visual tweaks. If you sent in feedback about any of these — thank you!

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that meant you couldn’t use the color picker if you’d hidden the interface (using Cmd+. or View > Hide Interface) in your window.
    • Fixes a couple of toolbar-related bugs that caused items with notification badges to appear clipped or translucent in some cases. We’ve also made notification badges easier to read if you’re using Sketch in dark mode.
    • We’ve removed the Text Only toolbar view option as this was causing some layout issues.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Make Grid tool to repeat layers within a group, rather than the group itself.
    • Fixes a bug that caused parts of the Inspector to disappear when opening a Color Popover, resizing your document window or scrolling in the Inspector itself.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped particularly long Artboard and layer names from showing in full when you renamed them.
  47. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This release includes a few important bug fixes and tweaks to make sure everything runs smoothly, especially on Macs with Apple’s new M1 chip.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve added the Notifications item to the Toolbar by default and fixed a few potential issues that could occur with notifications.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that swapped the functions of the right and center text alignment buttons in the Inspector for Macs with M1 chips.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you added a Library to the Mac app from Cloud.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you held down the Shift key and clicked on a nested Symbol.
    • Fixes a bug in the Color Popover that caused chevrons to overlap with the List and Grid view icons if you had Libraries with long names.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you exported layers that had specific characters in their name as SVGs.
  48. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • A fresh look for macOS Big Sur With this release, we’re excited to introduce a UI redesign that fits right in with the new macOS Big Sur design language. It’s the same Sketch you know and love, but with every detail reconsidered — from a full-height sidebar, to a refreshed Inspector, and all-new iconography throughout the app.

    The biggest change you’ll notice is the toolbar. To make room for Big Sur’s new inline document titles, we’ve introduced a new default toolbar and combined some items to keep things clean and uncluttered. As ever, you can change your toolbar items at any time by heading to View > Customize Toolbar….

    If you can’t upgrade to Big Sur just yet, don’t worry. We’ve spent time making sure that things still look and feel great in older versions of macOS.

    What’s improved

    • Alongside our Big Sur redesign, we’ve improved the contrast between different parts of our UI if you have relevant macOS Accessibility settings enabled.
    • We’ve optimized the Mac app for Apple’s powerful new M1 chips. This means you’re ready to tap into the potential of Apple Silicon, which makes working in Sketch feel faster than ever.
    • You can now alter between the grid view and list view once again for Color Variables in the popover
    • There’s now an option to insert Data sources as new layers from the Insert menu. And, when you select a layer that uses Data, you’ll see a new Data icon in the Inspector. Click on that to refresh that layer’s Data source or pick a new one.
    • We’ve made it quicker and easier to repeat and create grids from layers. Simply select two or more layers and drag on the new handle that appears in the bottom-right corner of your selection.

    What’s changed

    • The controls for the Make Grid tool (Arrange > Make Grid) now appear in their own view in the Inspector instead of a sheet that appears over your Canvas.
    • On macOS Big Sur, we’ve combined the view and zoom toolbar items to keep things tidy. The same options are still there, just together in one place. On older versions of macOS, you’ll continue to see these as two separate items.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that caused the Appearance panel in the Inspector to disappear if you selected a Symbol instance and collapsed it, like a bad magic trick.
    • Fixes a performance bug that, when many Libraries were enabled, could cause lag when dragging layers over a Symbol Source in the Symbols page.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause a complex shape layer to disappear if you tried to offset its path a more negative amount than is possible.
    • Fixes a bug that caused local documents you uploaded to Cloud to lose their link if you didn’t save the document immediately after the upload. This also affected documents you saved to third-party storage services like Dropbox, Box or iCloud Drive.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if your system-wide Language & Region preferences used a , as a decimal separator and you tried to perform a math operation with decimals in the Scale tool.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the shadow for a popover in the Inspector to move independently from the popover itself.
    • Fixes an issue that caused some bitmaps to appear blurry when you exported them.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from adding Assistants that had particularly long URLs (or located in lots of nested folders). This fix does mean you’ll need to reinstall any Assistants you had previously added — luckily you can do this in a couple of clicks from the Manage Assistants… sheet.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Sketch to freeze if you toggled between dark and light modes in System Preferences.
  49. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fix This release fixes a bug which caused Sketch to use a lot of system memory. We’re sorry about this one and any impact it’s had on your workflow!
  50. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • New iPhone Artboard Presets Happy new iPhone month! To celebrate, we’ve added Artboard presets for the 12 Mini, 12, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max.
    • Crash and Bug Fixes This release includes a number of smaller crash and bug fixes, including a crash that occurred on the macOS Big Sur Betas.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve introduced some better error messages to help us (and you!) understand what’s going wrong if you’re having trouble registering the Mac App using your Sketch Account details and a Teams subscription.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that caused rendering artefacts to appear when you zoomed in or out on certain Artboards.
    • Fixes a crash that would sometimes occur when you opened the Insert Window by pressing c on your keyboard.
    • Fixes a bug that meant changes you made to Hex and RGBA values did not always save when you created or edited Color Variables.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur in macOS Big Sur if there were expanded groups in your document’s Layer List.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the Insert Window from refreshing after you edited any properties for Styles, Symbols, or Color Variables.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the main document window to disappear if you made it full-screen after opening the Insert Window.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause some images to appear with inverted colors.
    • Fixes a bug that made the Return to Instance button disappear after you opened the Components View.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you were working with some greyscale images.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you duplicated a Color Variable in the Components View.
    • Fixes a bug where some single-letter shortcuts would not work for certain macOS keyboard input languages.
    • Fixes a bug that caused colors in text layers to change if you used Sketch with some external displays.
  51. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Color Variables We’re excited to introduce this long-requested feature and one of the final building blocks for a comprehensive design system in Sketch. When you apply a Color Variable to a fill, border or anywhere you can apply solid colors, they’ll stay linked. If you edit a Color Variable, you’ll see that change reflected across every part of your document that uses it. Color Variables replace solid color presets and when you open a document we’ll automatically convert any existing color presets that belong to it. You’ll see the option to create a new Color Variable in the Color Popover.
    • Components View (Beta) The Components View is a new home for your document’s local Symbols, Text and Layer Styles, and Color Variables. By bringing them together and giving them the space they deserve, we’ve made it easier for you to keep them organized and adjust their properties. In other words, there’s finally a proper place to preview and edit your text and layer styles — and that’s just the start.
    • Insert Window Alongside the Components View, we’re introducing a new, separate Insert Window that makes finding and inserting components faster than ever. It brings together all of the Symbols, Text and Layer Styles, and Color Variables from your enabled Libraries, and displays them with beautiful, big previews that make browsing easy. Simply press c on your keyboard to open it, start typing to search for the component you need, then drag and drop it onto your Canvas.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve added support for Color Variables to the Sketch JavaScript API, so if you’re building plugins or integrations, you can support it, too!
    • Re-ordering layers in grid arrangements, by dragging on their circular center handle, now works in a more natural way. Layers will shift around automatically to avoid adding an extra row or column.
    • When you use the Offset Path tool, we’ll temporarily show you an outline of the original path to give you a better sense of scale.
    • You can now use the Make Grid tool to reduce the size of existing grids.

    What’s changed

    • We’ve adjusted our Android Artboard presets, fixing some viewport sizes and adding the latest Pixel and Galaxy devices.
    • When you drag layers, we now use a smarter approach to align them to pixels. This should keep layers aligned more in the way you’d expect, especially for lines.
    • As part of an industry-wide change with Figma and Adobe, we’ve renamed Symbol masters throughout the app. We now refer to a Symbol master as a Symbol Source.
    • There’s now an optional toolbar icon available for the Offset Path tool. We’ve also added it to the Tools item.
    • We’ve been tidying things up ready for a certain operating system update and have moved the controls for Offset Path (Layer > Path > Offset…). You’ll now see the controls in the Inspector instead of a sheet at the top of the Canvas whenever you use it.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you were editing a bitmap layer and using the eyedropper tool.
    • Fixes a bug that caused some of the borders of an instance that had been previously rotated to not always show when fitting an Artboard to it.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when pasting a layer with invalid text attributes from an old document or from a document that was created with a third-party app.
    • Fixes a bug that wouldn’t show the correct Library source in the Components Popover for Text or Layer Styles that were part of a Library that was duplicated.
    • Fixes a bug that caused high CPU usage when you were viewing layers with blurred shadows.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped color properties from showing in the Find and Replace Color sheet.
    • Fixes a bug that meant bitmaps would not always look sharp at lower zoom levels.
    • Fixes a bug that caused unexpected antialiasing differences on Symbol instances with clipping masks compared with detached versions of that Symbol.
    • Fixes a bug that could change the coordinates of a line when you adjusted the size of the Artboard it belonged to.
    • Fixes a bug that caused overrides to reset or be unavailable when you reopened some documents.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you could set a guide to -0, which felt a little odd, if we’re honest.
    • Fixes a bug that meant values in the Layout Settings sheet would not always display correctly when confirming, canceling or tabbing through the sheet fields.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you pressed the tab key in an empty value field while you were creating Custom Artboard Preset.
    • Fixes a bug where changing opacity of a Tint on a Symbol instance would not always work reliably.
    • Fixes various bugs affecting the Text on Path feature to make it more reliable.
  52. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Crash and Bug Fixes This release includes fixes for a couple of commonly reported crashes, as well as an issue that caused layers that used blend modes, transparency and shadows to render incorrectly.
  53. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Crash and Bug Fixes This release fixes a handful of crashes and bugs, including one which caused Assistants to use too much memory in some cases.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes an issue that caused some bitmaps to appear blurry when you exported them.
    • Fixes a bug that caused groups within a Symbol to display incorrectly in Symbol instances. This affected the layout of some buttons in Alert symbols in the Apple iOS UI Library.
    • Fixes a bug that meant shadows would appear pixelated if you had enabled View > Canvas > Show Pixels on Zoom.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you adjusted the length of lines or paths.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you imported gradients from other applications or file formats.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you set a blur value of less than 1.0 on text layers.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you updated a Library.
    • Fixes a crash that could happen when double-clicking to rename a missing image layer in the Layer List.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur while editing some text layers.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the color well and Hex values in the Inspector from updating when you selected multiple Artboards with the same color.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause fonts with ligatures to be unaligned or appear outside of the bounding box of text layers. This affected Thai, Arabic and German characters especially.

    What’s new

    • Say Hello To Assistants With this release, we’re introducing Assistants — a helping hand for your designs. Assistants can automatically check your documents to help you spot issues, stay consistent with design systems, prepare your files for collaboration, and follow your team’s rules. You can find out more, discover and download Assistants in the new Assistants Directory, or read our documentation to see how they work.

    What’s improved

    • In the last release we made sure you could upload, rename and delete Cloud documents from the Documents window. And with this release, you can add, rename and remove Cloud projects from the sidebar in the Documents window, too!

    What’s changed

    • We’ve tweaked the copy in the Cloud upload popover to better explain what happens when you create a new upload of an existing document.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur as you edited a document that used blurs with a particularly large blur radius.
    • Fixes a bug where applying a color preset to a text layer would not instantly refresh the preview in the color popover.
    • Fixes a bug that meant the Touch Bar would not display the save dialog options correctly.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the settings icon for Fill properties to stay in its highlighted state.
    • Fixes an issue where the color popover for Tints would not close when you clicked in the color well.
    • Fixes a bug in boolean operations where curved segments intersecting more than one line could incorrectly ignore those intersections.
    • Fixes a bug where adjusting gradient stops in the color popover via the arrow keys would change the selection to the first gradient point and move that instead.
    • Fixes a bug where nested overrides in existing Symbol instances would appear as available for editing, even if you had made them unavailable for editing on the Symbol master within a Library. This bug did not affect new instances, and this fix means existing instances will also show accurate override options.
    • Fixes a bug where moving the app window between Retina and non-Retina displays could cause the Canvas to render in the wrong resolution.
    • Fixes a bug where signing in to a Sketch account on one Mac might sign you out on another Mac connected to the same iCloud Keychain. The bug fix only applies if you are running macOS 10.15 or newer.
    • Fixes a bug that meant some document versions you saved would get stuck while they were processing on Cloud.

  55. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Crash and Bug Fixes Thanks for all your feedback and bug reports for version 67. This release contains fixes to the most common bugs and crashes you have reported.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that meant the correct handles wouldn’t appear when you used the Rotate Copies tool.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the app to become unresponsive when you resized a selection that included multiple Line layers.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause prototype links to reappear after you had deleted them.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Inspector panel to get stuck if you scrolled up with a color popover open.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you edited text or Text Styles in certain documents.
  56. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Crash Fix This release fixes a crash that could occur in version 67 when you attempted to save or embed certain fonts in a document. We’re really sorry for any inconvenience and interruption to your workflow that this one caused.
  57. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Performance Improvements We’re working hard to speed things up across the app and this release includes a few key updates. We’ve cleaned up our code around Symbols so working with them (especially in complex documents) should feel a lot more responsive. We’ve also fixed some particular performance bottlenecks around shadows and layers with background blur and saturation. There are a lot of small changes here, but they all add up to a smoother, faster Sketch.
    • Embed Fonts in Documents With this release, we’re introducing the option to embed font files in individual documents. You can do this in any document by choosing Text > Document Fonts… and selecting the fonts you want to embed. Embedding fonts makes it easier to share documents with others and ensures that text layers render accurately — even if they don’t have the right fonts installed. It also ensures text layers render correctly whenever you view your documents on Cloud.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve made Select All smarter and more context-aware. By default, it now selects all layers in your current group. Using Select All again will extend that selection to layers in the next group up. Using Select All with an Artboard selected will select all Artboards instead. When you’ve selected layers from two or more Artboards, Select All will select the contents of all Artboards.
    • You can now use Smart Distribute and Tidy with selections of layers that are both outside and inside of groups.
    • We’ve made some performance improvements for documents with lots of Slices, particularly when you’re zoomed in on content.
    • You can now rename Cloud documents from the comfort of the Documents window. Double-click on the name under the document’s thumbnail, or right-click on it and choose Rename.
    • For our developer friends, we’ve added a new --suffixing option for the Sketchtool export layers command. Using this option makes it possible to export non-uniquely named layers without one overwriting the other.
    • We’ve improved the error message you’ll see in the Documents window when Cloud documents can’t load because of a bad connection.
    • You can now right-click on any thumbnail in the Documents window and choose Delete Document… — or hit the backspace key — to delete it.
    • We’ve saved you a click when it comes to creating Cloud Libraries. You can now choose File > Add as Library to turn any Cloud document into a Cloud Library directly from the Mac app.
    • You can now drag-and-drop local documents into the Documents window to save them to Cloud. We’ll show a save dialog to confirm exactly which workspace and project you want to save to. If you drag a document into the Libraries view for a personal or team workspace, that document will automatically become a Library.
    • Using emoji in your text layers no longer stretches the line height and vertical rhythm of your layers. 🙌 So you can sprinkle emoji wherever you want, and everything will still align perfectly. 🎉

    What’s fixed

    • We’ve tweaked the size and spacing of the fill mode buttons in the color picker. That might not seem release note-worthy, but we did it to make room for an exciting update coming soon. That’s all we’re saying for now.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped changes to the Visuals option in Layout Settings showing up on the Canvas until you also changed the color.
    • Fixes a bug that caused Sketch to become unresponsive when you opened a nested Symbol overrides menu that contained a large number of options.
    • Fixes a bug that meant Sketch 66 would use a small amount of CPU while open in the background.
    • Fixes a bug where holding Z and drawing a selection on the Canvas (to zoom in on that selection) would leave the selection showing after the zoom, instead of clearing it immediately.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur in the Save Document dialog if you selected the Other… file location with the filename left empty.
    • Fixes a bug that meant overridden text in Symbols wouldn’t display as expected when fonts were missing.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Canvas to freeze if you zoomed in and out while inserting a Symbol from the Insert menu.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the recursive Symbols warning to display incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug where resizing a document window would cause lag and unexpected scaling of layers on the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped lines correctly snapping to their start points when you inserted them.
    • Fixes a bug that meant detaching a Symbol recursively could result in missing metadata. This one may have caused issues for plugins and integrations. We now store the metadata containing information about which Symbol an instance got detached from, and its frame, in the userInfo property of the detached group.
    • Fixes a bug that meant we would not always reliably remember whether you had expanded or collapsed groups, Artboards or Symbols in the Layer List.
    • Fixes a bug that caused horizontal and vertical lines to move unexpectedly within the Layer List when you changed their position on the Canvas using the arrow keys.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Documents window to appear in a frozen state when you opened a document by dragging it onto the Sketch icon.
  58. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This release includes fixes for a couple of crashes, including one that could occur if you dropped a bitmap onto the image well in the Pattern Fill popover. It also fixes an issue that could have prevented you from opening files in older versions of the app, if you had already opened them in 66.
  59. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes and Improvements We’re busy putting the finishing touches on some very exciting upcoming releases, so we’ve taken a step back with this one to focus on some important bug fixes and key improvements that all add up to a better experience.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve made uploads for large Cloud documents much more reliable over slower network connections. If you’ve been seeing errors that said Sketch couldn’t connect to the internet when you were certain you were online, this release should fix that.
    • If you’ve struggled to see a black or white Symbol clearly in the Components Panel or Menu, we’ve got you covered with this release. Symbol previews now show the background color you’ve applied to their master (if you’ve set one) or a black or white background that makes them easier to spot.
    • We’ve renamed the Prototyping Menu to “Prototype” to keep things consistent and tidy.
    • Behind the scenes, we’ve been working hard to improve performance in the app. If you’re working with very complex documents, you may feel the benefit of some of these improvements with this update. There’s plenty more to come, though, so expect things to feel snappier and smoother soon.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that could cause an older version of a Cloud document to open instead of a newer one you’d worked on.
    • Fixes a bug that caused text layers with custom character spacing to display gradient fills incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug that would stop you from adding a Library from Cloud that had a forward slash (/) in its name.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Magic Wand selection to appear upside down and mirrored on the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug that caused a few different issues with Symbol overrides, including overrides changing unexpectedly after Library updates, overrides removing themselves when you renamed a Layer in a Symbol master, and Libraries taking longer than they should to update. Working with Symbol overrides should feel a little faster now, too.
    • One for our plugin developer friends: We’ve removed and ended support for our legacy Javascript API (v1.0). Most plugins already use our current API, which you’ll find details of on our developer website.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from making layers exportable if your selection included a Hotspot layer.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from applying blending modes to text fills.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you couldn’t override or manage Layer Styles that included Tints from Symbol masters or instances.
    • Fixes a bug that meant groups or Symbols with tints could lose their colors when you exported them as SVGs.
    • Fixes a bug that would cause some filled layers with borders or shadows to have oddly curved edges.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped the Original Size button from enabling immediately after you resized a bitmap layer (you’d have to change selection for it to enable itself, but no more!).
    • Fixes a crash that could occur during/after Library updates or when you edited items in the Components Panel.
  60. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • API Fixes This update includes a small fix to our JavaScript API that could have caused issues for some plugins and integrations.
  61. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • New Prototyping Scroll Effects With this release, we’re introducing a “Maintain scroll position after click” option that preserves the position of scrolling Artboards after you click on a prototype link. With it, you can create overlay-style elements and state changes that feel more natural and don’t interrupt your flow.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve also updated our iOS app “Mirror” with support for the new prototyping scroll effect behaviour, along with compatibility improvements for iOS 13 and a few bug fixes. You can get the update from the App Store.
    • Previously we capped the number of Cloud projects in the sidebar of the Documents window at 20, but that felt a little limiting. Now, there’s no limit at all, so you’ll see all of your projects right where you need them.
    • We’ve added a new option to the export settings for groups to Trim Transparent Pixels. When it’s enabled, any transparent pixels around the layers in your group won’t show in any exported asset.
    • We’re doing some Spring cleaning and tidying up our code, so creating Symbols and working with them should feel a little faster now.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur when previewing certain prototypes.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you selected the option to retry uploading a Cloud document while offline.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you couldn’t always use commas as decimals in different input fields. If you’re a commas-as-decimals type of person, we’ve got you covered now.
    • Fixes a bug that meant we would not always reliably remember whether you had expanded or collapsed groups and Artboards in the Layer List.
    • Fixes a couple of bugs that affected the appearance and behaviour of both the individual Edit button and Tools menu toolbar items.
    • Fixes a bug that meant Guides wouldn’t update to reflect a color you changed them to in Preferences until you moved your cursor over them on the Canvas. Now they’ll update right away, no cursor movements required.
    • Fixes a bug that caused elements of the UI to overlap if you named and saved a script as a plugin.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you’d have to hit Undo twice to revert a change to a Prototyping link’s destination.
    • Fixes a bug that caused shadows with blurs to render incorrectly when you dragged them around the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug where a Symbol instances that contained a nested Symbol with Smart Layout might unexpectedly resize to their master’s size when you applied an override.
    • Fixes an issue that caused some Symbols with masks to render incorrectly.
    • Fixes a bug where you couldn’t click and drag to create a curved point on the very first point you inserted with the Vector tool.
    • Fixes a bug where Rulers would not immediately update their color if you switched between dark and light mode in Preferences.
    • Fixes a bug that caused the Insert menu to stay enabled and selectable in certain cases, even without a document open - spooky.
    • Fixes a bug where the Export All option in the Export Sheet would toggle but not actually change anything.
    • Fixes a bug where selecting multiple layers with different Styles would not update the Inspector correctly or apply a style to all.
    • Fixes a bug that caused prototype transitions to play twice in some cases.
  62. Requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Better Search Searching for Symbols and styles is now easier and more intuitive. Fuzzy search is here, which means you no longer have to type the exact name of a Component to find what you need. We’ve also cleaned up the results to make it easier to scan through, and we’ve moved the search bar to the top of the the Components Panel, Layer List and Components Menu.
    • Introducing Tints With Tints, you can change the color of an entire Symbol or group, without relying on complex workarounds and multiple Layer Styles. They’re also easy to override, which makes them great for creating icons with multiple states. Tints work best with single-color Symbols and groups that make use of multiple opacities, like icons or tabs in a menu. You’ll find the new Tints option under the Style heading in the Inspector when you select any Symbol or group.
    • Components Menu Improvements Based on your feedback, we’ve completely redesigned the Components Menu to once again use the fly-out menus that you know and love. We’ll still make it easy to switch between Components from the same group and search for Components from every Library in your document, but for those of you who preferred the old menus, we’re happy to say that we’ve brought them back.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve updated the Artboard presets for Chromebooks to cover the Pixel Slate (1333 x 888) and Pixelbook (1200 x 800).
    • Love Symbols? Like shortcuts? Then this one is for you! We’ve introduced a few new shortcuts around Symbols, specifically Command + Y for Create Symbol, Command + Shift + Y for Detach from Symbol, and Command + Option + Shift + Y for Detach all contents from Symbol.
    • Images you insert using the Unsplash data plugin are now smaller (@2x, instead of @4x) to keep your documents small and save on bandwidth. The search field supports special characters now, too.
    • If you’re working on a document with lots of Symbols or you’re using Smart Layout, things should feel a little faster and more responsive.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you edited a Symbol with shared Styles in Libraries.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you could not disable snapping by holding the Command key when you dragged a Component from Components panel onto the Canvas.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you couldn’t always access the Data menu for some Symbol overrides.
    • Fixes a bug that meant you couldn’t adjust the width of the sidebar in the Documents window.
    • Fixes a bug that meant some Data source plugins wouldn’t appear in Symbol override menus.
    • Fixes a bug that could mean Symbols you scaled would show text at an incorrect size or clip their text layers as you zoomed in or out.
    • Fixes a bug where Symbol instances would link themselves to the wrong Library if they were from a Library you had duplicated and edited.
    • Fixes a reoccurring bug that causes the color of text layers to change unexpectedly. There are a few different causes of this and we think we’ve caught them all this time.
    • Fixes a bug where List Options for text layers would be missing if you were using Sketch with macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
  63. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fix This release fixes a bug that could stop you from updating a Cloud document in a team workspace.
  64. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Faster Cloud uploads With this release, uploading documents to Cloud should become a lot faster and feel a lot smoother. We’re doing all the hard work on our servers instead of on your Mac now, so if you’ve ever had your fans spin up during an upload, this should put a stop to that too.

    What’s improved

    • Be honest, how many times have you searched for, “Facebook cover image size 2020” already this year? To save you some time, this release includes social media Artboard presets for a whole range of platforms.
    • Instead of only being able to click on the disclosure arrows to open and close Library tabs in the Components popover, you can now click on the whole Library name.
    • Layers and Components with truncated names will now show you a tooltip with their full name when you hover over them in the Layer List and Components Panel/Popover.
    • When you select Other… from the Location menu when you save a document, we now show you the standard macOS save panel, making it easier to do things like picking an existing file to overwrite.
    • You can now press Cmd + R in the dialog that appears to overwrite an existing document, which performs the same action as clicking on the Replace button.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where right-clicking in the Recents view of the Documents window would not show the option to clear the view.
    • Fixes a bug where closing an unsaved document’s window and saving it to Cloud would unexpectedly create a local copy of that document as well.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause the Workspace field in the save dialog to appear blank in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug that meant the text color popover wouldn’t always scroll properly.
    • Fixes a bug that could cause Components imported from Libraries to reappear after you removed them.
    • Fixes a bug which could cause document drafts you deleted to stick around in the Documents window for longer than we’d like (and drafts you’d saved to not show up straight away).
    • Fixes an issue where the Inspector could overflow and get stuck within the window, leaving parts of it hidden and difficult to access.
    • Fixes a bug where the X and Y values of two lines would stay the same and not update in the Inspector.
    • Fixes a bug where detaching a Symbol would also remove any Prototyping links you had connected to it.
    • Fixes a bug where Symbol instances with Smart Layout settings wouldn’t always resize as expected when you applied certain Text Style overrides.
    • Fixes a bug where SVGs wouldn’t import as expected if you dragged them directly from a web browser onto the Canvas.
    • Fixes a regression in Vector Editor mode where selecting points and Shift-dragging over others would not add to your selection. This fix also makes selection behaviour more consistent in general.
    • Fixes a bug where Command-clicking to insert a new point after a curved path would insert a new curved point instead of a straight one.
    • Fixes a bug that would cause popovers to close if you clicked on the title bar in any Sketch window.
    • Fixes a bug where documents in Cloud wouldn’t show Artboards at their correct size if you had uploaded a design with a scaled Artboard.
    • Fixes a bug in sketchtool where the detach command would fail if the document included a missing Symbol.
  65. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • A better way to create and save documents When inspiration strikes, you shouldn’t have to think about whether your document is being saved to Cloud or on your Mac, so we’ve fixed that. Now, instead of choosing whether a new document should be a Cloud or local document when you create it, you’ll make that choice when you save it instead.
    • New Smart Layout controls You can now make sure your Smart Layout buttons don’t become too tiny to tap and form fields never shrink too small by setting minimum dimensions. You’ll find this much-requested feature under the Layout section of the Inspector when you set a horizontal or vertical layout. And don’t worry, the option to set maximum dimensions is coming soon.

    What’s improved

    • Previously you could open Cloud documents in the Mac app, from your browser, by adding sketch:// in front of your document URL. Now you can do that with the URL for specific Pages and Artboards. When your document opens, you’ll be taken to the right place, right away.
    • Now, when you’re viewing the Layer List, you can press ⌘ ⇧ F to switch to the Components Panel and head straight to the filter/search field. We’ve literally saved you a click.
    • We’ve added a new “Swap at Original Size” option to the Components Popover when you’re swapping Symbols. It’s enabled by default and means that when you swap Symbols, the instance you’ve selected will resize to fit its new Symbol master. If you’d prefer the instance size to stay the same, you can uncheck this option.
    • Instead of asking you to confirm your choice any time you delete a Component, we’ll now only show the delete dialog if it will affect any of your layers in your document.
    • You’ll now find Libraries tabs in the sidebar of the Documents window, giving you quick access to any Libraries in your team or personal Cloud workspaces.
    • When you edit a Cloud Library master document, things should feel a little more smooth. Previously you’d have to save your changes, wait for them to appear in your Library preferences, then download them. That felt a little silly. Now when you edit a Cloud Library master document, it will update in your Library preferences as soon as you save it.
    • We’ve made some tweaks to the Components Panel and Popover to improve performance with Libraries of all shapes and sizes. Expect things to feel a little faster from now on.
    • We’ve improved the accuracy and appearance of previews for documents with missing fonts, especially on layers with specific alignment or Smart Layout settings, and those where multiple instances of the same text layer were present in a single document. If you’ve noticed missing fonts displaying incorrectly in your document previews, you’ll need to open and resave those documents with all the correct fonts available to take advantage of these fixes.
    • The macOS Auto Save option in Preferences now applies to both local and Cloud documents. Previously this only applied to local documents and Cloud documents always had Auto Save enabled, but now the same preference affects both.
    • If you have a lot of Libraries, scrolling through Preferences and finding the one that needs an update can be a bit of a pain. Now, clicking on the “Shared Library Update Available” badge will open Preferences and scroll right to the first Library that’s available to update.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug that could sign you out of your Sketch Account when waking your Mac from sleep mode.
    • Fixes a bug where selecting “Enable and Open Library” for a Symbol instance from an uninstalled Cloud Library would open the Library master document, but not download the Library itself.
    • Fixes a bug where nested Symbols could appear in the wrong position when you inserted a Symbol from a Library.
    • Fixes a bug where measurements wouldn’t appear after you clicked and dragged to select a layer in the Canvas, while pressing the Option key.
    • Fixes a bug where shadows on layers with centered borders might not appear as you’d expect them to.
    • Fixes a bug where scrolling down to the bottom of the Components popover would not work as expected.
    • Fixes a bug that meant it wasn’t possible to open your Cloud Libraries via the contextual menu in the Libraries tab in Preferences.
    • Fixes a bug where opening or closing a path would flatten rounded corners.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you quit Sketch while the Preferences window was open in front of a document.
    • Fixes an issue where only the first component of a selected Library would appear in the Components Panel in some cases.
    • Fixes a bug where the Components Panel wouldn’t update to reflect any components you recently created or deleted.
  66. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This update fixes a couple of bugs that could lead to a crash when selecting certain layers or Artboards.
  67. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    Bug Fixes This update fixes a number of bugs and restores preview images for any groups you’ve created for Text Styles in the Components Panel and Popover.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where the color popover could get cut off when Sketch was positioned slightly off screen.
    • You should now see preview images for any groups you’ve created for text styles in the Components Panel and Popover.
    • Fixes an issue where the Documents window might not refresh when you switched from “Get Started” to “Recent Documents”.
    • Fixes a bug where deleting a point would select the next point in a path but the selected point wouldn’t actually be editable.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when using Z to undo edits while working with multiple gradient fills.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you selected Refresh Data from the Data menu on an image fill.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when editing text overrides.
    • Fixes a bug that stopped you from selecting vector points by pressing A or choosing Edit > Select > Select All.
  68. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Improved Text Styles in the Components Panel and Popover We’re working hard to respond to your feedback on the new Components Panel and Popover and with this release, we’ve brought back a full preview of Text Styles. You’ll now see the Text Style name rendered in the style itself, along with some additional information like size and alignment.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve given performance a bit of a boost with this release, particularly when it comes to navigating around large documents.
    • When you open a Cloud document from the Documents window, you’ll now see its download progress on the thumbnail you’ve just clicked on, instead of in a popup. Because let’s face it, we’d all like fewer popups in the world.
    • If you were ever unlucky enough to run into a “file doesn’t exist” error when trying to reopen a Cloud document, first of all, we’re sorry about that. Secondly, we’ve been working hard to reduce the chance of you ever seeing it again. Finally, if you do see it again, the error message should now be far more helpful.
    • We’ve improved the appearance of resize handles in the middle of layers so they look sharper, even on non-Retina displays.
    • For developers, we’ve added support for Smart Layout and Variable Fonts to our JavaScript API. We’ve also updated the developer documentation to match, so you can get more details by clicking on either of those links.
    • For all you fans of super-organised Libraries, you can now create a group with just a single Component in it. Simply right-click on it in the Components Panel and choose “Group” from the contextual menu.
    • You can now copy a link to a Cloud document by right-clicking on its thumbnail in the Documents window and choosing “Copy Link”. In other words, you no longer have to open a Cloud document in Sketch or in the browser to share its URL.
    • You can now select Round to Pixel from the Arrange menu when any selection you make includes layers on sub-pixels.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixes a bug where the Documents window would refresh all its contents and not remember the selection position if you reopened it or switched back to it after focusing on another window.
    • Fixes a bug where Symbols in Cloud Library documents were inserted as Library Symbols, rather than displaying them as local Symbols.
    • Fixes a bug where selection hairlines appeared over the top of point handles in the vector editor. This didn’t affect how anything worked, but it looked messy, so we’ve tidied it up.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when you imported password-protected PDF files.
    • Fixes a bug where editing bitmaps in a Symbol master wouldn’t always show the updates correctly in overridden instances of that Symbol.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur when using the color picker on macOS Catalina.
    • Fixes a bug where pressing the down arrow key after you’d searched for something in the Typefaces popover would dismiss it, instead of highlighting the first result.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you attempted to apply Data to a combined shape.
    • Fixes a bug where choosing Edit Styles… in the Inspector wouldn’t always show the correct information in the Components Panel.
    • Fixes a bug where the Artboard popover would sometimes get a little shy and hide itself slightly off the side of the screen.
    • Fixes a crash that could occur if you attempted to pick colors from external displays while another app was in Fullscreen mode on that display.
  69. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Components Panel and Popover Improvements Thank you so much for the feedback you’ve given us on the Components Panel. We’re listening and we’re working hard to make things better. More updates and improvements are coming in the next few weeks. This update brings back folder preview images (based on the topmost Component in the group) and fixes a couple of bugs that meant you couldn’t always expand Libraries in the Components Panel or groups in search results.
  70. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Improved Cloud Libraries Under the Libraries tab in Preferences, you’ll now see all the Libraries that belong to your team(s) on Sketch Cloud, as well as any in your personal workspace. There’s also a handy install button right by each one, meaning you no longer have to head to the browser to add a Library.
    • New Components Panel The new Components Panel and Components Popover bring Symbols, Text Styles and Layer Styles together in a single place where you can search, sort and filter for what you need, then drag and drop directly onto the Canvas. Now there’s no need for endless menus and naming schemes to sort Symbols into folders, you can do it all from the Components Panel. Better still, both the Components Panel and Popover let you quickly search to find the exact Symbol or style you need, from your document or Libraries, faster than you can say, “Where did we save that modal again?”

    What’s improved

    • We’ve given the Documents window a bit of a tidy and moved the New Document button back next to your document previews. As a bonus, if you click the New Document thumbnail while you’re viewing a specific project, we’ll pre-fill that project name when you go to save your document for the first time.
    • We all change our minds from time to time, so we’ve introduced the ability to rename Cloud documents from the Mac app. Just choose File > Rename whenever inspiration for a new name strikes.
    • You can now copy SVG code from slices as well as regular layers by choosing Edit > Copy > Copy as SVG code.
    • If you’ve ever found yourself feeling sad because you can’t enter math operations in the Scale Layers sheet, then feel sad no longer! We’ve made it possible to use all of your favorite math operators to save you having to calculate those new dimensions elsewhere. We’ve also removed px from the end of the Width and Height fields to keep things consistent with similar fields in the Inspector.
    • If you enable the Scale down images to fit Artboards preference, we’ll now perfectly place big bitmaps right in the centre of your Artboards and scale them down to fit (so long as that bitmap was bigger than the Artboard to begin with, of course).
    • Continuing our Libraries theme, Components that belong to local Libraries will automatically relink themselves if you upload that Library to Cloud and share it via Sketch for Teams. All you need to do is make sure you’ve enabled that new Cloud Library in Sketch’s preferences and deleted any local copies you have. We’ll handle the rest and make the Symbols and Styles in your documents stay linked up.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixed a bug where leaving the Documents window open for a while and then trying to open a document would result in a cryptic “This file is not a database” message. Your files were always safe, but now they should open without a hitch.
    • Fixed a bug where thumbnails in the Documents window would load slowly or fail to load at all, especially on slower internet connections.
    • Fixed a bug where you wouldn’t get a notification and could lose changes if you lost your internet connection while a document was uploading to Cloud after you quit Sketch or closed that document.
    • Fixed a bug where flattening a selection to bitmap would mistakenly include an Artboard’s background in the result.
    • Fixed a bug where Symbols with Smart Layout that were resized, and nested within another Symbol, would appear at their original size when you inserted the Symbol they were nested in onto the Canvas.
    • Fixed a bug that would cause a Symbol’s layers to shift unexpectedly when you inserted an instance or detached from a Symbol.
    • Fixed a bug which meant you couldn’t enter edit mode for a text layer if you were already in edit mode with another text layer.
    • Fixed a bug where dragging a Symbol instance into a Symbol master would cause Sketch to hang.
    • Fixed a bug where text in edit mode wouldn’t immediately change if you selected an OpenType feature.
    • Fixed a bug where open paths would unexpectedly close when you flattened them.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur if you pressed Enter on your keyboard to confirm and submit on the Rotate Copies sheet.
    • Fixed a bug where layer constraints you applied within a group would continue to affect layers you moved outside of that group.
    • Fixed a bug that meant text layers wouldn’t render correctly when they were rotated and contained missing fonts.
    • Fixed a bug where previews of Symbol instances with overrides that featured missing fonts wouldn’t save or display correctly. In some cases, the missing font preview might not be positioned perfectly (especially for overridden, centered text), but we’re working on a fix for this, too.
    • Fixed a bug where unlocking a layer would make its resizing handles disappear until you deselected and reselected it. We’ve fixed that to save you a few clicks.
    • Fixed a bug where titles in the Variable Font Options popover could appear cut off if you’d set your scrollbar preferences to Always in System Preferences and the popover itself wasn’t fully on the screen.
    • Fixed a bug where centered text within a Symbol using a Horizontal and Centered Layout might end up off-center if you resized its parent instance on the Canvas.

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This release fixes a bug where text layers could appear gradually lighter each time you edited them, and a graphical glitch that could occur on Macs with NVIDIA graphics. On macOS 10.14.4 and higher, your Mac’s hardware will need to support Metal in order to run Sketch 59 and higher.
  72. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Better OpenType features support We’ve heard your requests for better OpenType features support and today we’re bringing them to the Text menu. You’ll find a full set of OpenType features for the font you’ve selected under Text > OpenType Features in the Menu Bar. Simply select your text, enable the features you need, and unlock even better typography in Sketch.
    • Variable fonts support Along with better OpenType features support, this update also brings support for variable font options like weight, width, slant, optical size and more. If you’re using an OpenType font with variable options, you’ll be able to adjust these using the Variable Font Options popover in the Inspector.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve improved how things work when you drag layers out of an Artboard. They’ll no longer stay arranged within their previous Artboard in the Layer List.
    • We’ve improved the behaviour around Smart Distribute spacing handles, so when you click on a handle, we won’t adjust the spacing until you start dragging to avoid any unwanted changes.
    • To help you get to grips with the new Smart Layout features we launched in version 58, we’ve added a new tutorial template. You can find it under the Templates tab in the documents window.
    • We’ve tidied up Smart Distribute reordering handles so they no longer show if your selection is so small that they interfere with their surrounding resizing handles.
    • With the introduction of Smart Layout, we’ve removed the behaviour that would occur if you placed a small layer less than 20px from a text layer to have it move along when overrides changed the text layer’s size. You can achieve the same result with even more control using Smart Layout instead.
    • For developers, we’ve added a new sketchtool detach command that creates a self-contained Sketch document from any document using Symbols and Shared Styles.
    • We’ve introduced a new API that gives plugin developers even more power when it comes to responding to document changes. The new onDocumentChange handler lets plugins listen for new layers being added, existing layers being deleted or rearranged within the layer list, as well as layer attribute changes such as fill and border styles or Symbol override values. Check out the sample plugin to see how it works.
    • If you’re exporting two-point lines as SVGs, they’ll now export as <line> elements instead of as paths.
    • We’ve given the typeface picker in the Inspector a fresher look and made previews more legible. And if you select a text layer and open it up, it now scrolls to show you the selected typeface right in the middle of the list.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixed a bug where Color Adjust settings would be enabled in the Inspector any time you imported bitmaps. Now you’ll only see these settings when you enable them.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur if you flattened combined shapes that featured multiple open paths.
    • Fixed a bug that meant you’d see the wrong Text Style in some cases when you were editing an override on the Canvas.
    • Fixed a bug where highlights for text overrides on the Canvas wouldn’t always update to fit their text when the Symbol they involved used Smart Layout settings.
    • Fixed a bug where previews of text overrides that used a missing font wouldn’t display correctly in exports and uploads to Cloud.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur on macOS Catalina 10.15 for Macs with NVIDIA graphics.
    • Fixed a bug that meant some files took too long to open and caused Sketch to hang or not respond.
    • Fixed a bug where some color presets might not show up if you hadn’t changed the default preset name.
    • Fixed a bug where some custom shortcuts would not work until you used the option from the main menu first.
    • Fixed a bug where setting an override to none in a vertical Smart Layout would shrink the overall width to 0.
    • Fixed a bug where text styles wouldn’t look right if you opened a document in macOS High Sierra that was last saved on macOS Catalina.
    • Fixed a bug where moving a shape up and out of a group (or Artboard) would unexpectedly create a combined shape that looked like the layer was hidden or repositioned. Now that layer should move to its new place in the Layer List as you’d expect it to.
  73. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Introducing Smart Layout With Smart Layout, we’re making Symbols more powerful and supercharging your workflow when it comes to using them in your designs. With it, you can set a direction for Symbols to resize when you change their overrides, while keeping the spacing between different layers in that Symbol consistent. Better still, you can set different Smart Layout settings for Nested Symbols and even groups within Symbols. It’s incredibly powerful and we can’t wait to see how it’ll improve your workflow.

    What’s improved

    • We’ve made the Welcome Window better, bigger, cleaner and more snappy. You can browse your Cloud documents by Project in a new sidebar on the left, and we’ve given thumbnails plenty more space so you can see more of your documents without scrolling.
    • Along with browsing Projects in the Welcome Window, you’ll now have the option to pick a Project when you save a new Cloud document for the first time.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixed a bug where Sketch would believe you were offline and not allow you to upload new Cloud documents after you put your Mac to sleep or temporarily disconnected from the internet.
    • Fixed a bug where text overrides might reset or clear themselves if you clicked in and out of a text override field in the Inspector.
    • Fixed a bug where Symbol instances on your Canvas would not pick up changes you made to a text layer in that Symbol’s master.
    • Fixed a bug where you might see the Canvas flash if you switch from a different app to Sketch when it’s in full screen mode.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur if you created a particularly big grid.
    • Fixed a bug where resizing multiple layers with a small width or height but large distance between them would cause either their height or width to increase unexpectedly.
    • Fixed a bug where performing a Union operation on straight lines would make the combined shape disappear.
    • Fixed a bug where an artboard you hovered over wouldn’t highlight when if you were in Prototyping mode.
    • Fixed a bug where your Show Layer Selection preference would reset itself when you restart Sketch.
    • Fixed a bug that could result in Sketch failing to respond (hanging) in a few different situations. If you’ve been in touch about Sketch being unresponsive, this one is for you.
    • Fixed a few different bugs related to how nested overrides highlight when you select them on the Canvas. If you’d selected a nested override and couldn’t see it highlighted on the Canvas properly, you’ll be pleased to know this update puts that right.
    • Fixed a bug that could cause performance issues and slow things down if you selected certain Symbol masters with complex overrides.
  74. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Bug Fixes This update fixes a bug where selections on the Canvas could appear offset from your cursor, a crash that could occur when switching between Layer Styles with certain names, and a crash that could occur in documents with certain Boolean Operations.
  75. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Reorder layers in a Smart Distribute selection If you’ve selected multiple layers with even spacing between them, you can grab and drag the center of one of those layers to change its position within that selection. The surrounding layers will reorder themselves and snap into place to make way for the one you’re moving. The best part is, it even works with Artboards, so you can keep your documents looking neat and tidy.
    • Better Boolean Operations We’ve done a lot of work to improve the way we handle Boolean Operations. If you’ve run into any Boolean Ops bugs or odd behaviours in the past, there’s a good chance we’ve fixed it here.

    What’s improved

    • If you use the arrow keys on your keyboard with the Rotate tool to adjust a layer, we’ll now hide the selection handles and show the right values in the Inspector.
    • Sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish between solid and gradient presets in the Color Popover, so we’ve given them their own headings to make it easier to find what you need.
    • You can now paste rich text from the Clipboard directly into the Canvas by choosing Paste as Rich Text in the Edit menu. Previously, we only enabled this in text editing mode, but now it’s always there.
    • We’ve changed a few arrangement shortcuts. Send Backward is now ⌘ [ and Bring Forward is ⌘ ]. Send to Back is now ⌘ ⌥ [ and Bring to Front is ⌘ ⌥ ]. If you’d like to use the old shortcut or something totally different, you can create custom keyboard shortcuts in System Preferences.
    • We’ve made it easier to work with very large grids. Scrolling around them, moving them and changing colors should all feel faster and smoother.
    • You can now set a default layer style from the Layer menu in vector editing mode if you’ve selected a single path or shape group.

    What’s fixed

    • Fixed a bug where you might see the wrong cursor if you hover over Inspector labels with your language set as Chinese.
    • Fixed a bug where the Layer List would scroll to the top if you hit Undo in a document with a long list of layers.
    • Fixed a bug where Smart Distribute handles could look squashed if you launched Sketch on a Retina display then moved the document to a non-Retina display.
    • Fixed a bug where you wouldn’t see a proper preview of your work in Quick Look in the Finder.
    • Fixed a bug where where you couldn’t insert an image by selecting one from your Photos Library in the Finder sheet. This might mean we’ll ask for permission to access your photos if you haven’t granted it already.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur if you tried to apply an Outer Border to certain paths.
    • Fixed a bug where an Artboard might lose its preset if you converted it into a Symbol.
    • Fixed a bug where a landscape Artboard might unexpectedly switch to portrait if you held shift and dragged to resize it.
    • Fixed a bug where images might not be properly included as part of a group if that image overlapped with a nearby Artboard.
    • Fixed a bug where inserting a line while holding shift wouldn’t always respect pixel rounding.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur when you try to print or adjust your print settings.
    • Fixed a bug where pressing Control and Option keys at the same time wouldn’t correctly show the distance between a text layer’s baseline and another text layer’s cap height.
    • Fixed a bug where a Cloud Library update would fail because of an incorrect version/compatibility number. We’ll also be clearer in telling you when a Library is incompatible.
    • Fixed a bug where you couldn’t set any border position other than inner as part of a default layer style.

  79. Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.4) or newer

    What’s new

    • Edit text overrides on the Canvas We’ve made it easier to work with text overrides by adding the option to edit them directly on the Canvas. Simply double-click on text in any Symbol instance and start typing. Stay on the Canvas, stay in the moment and speed up your workflow.
    • Smart Distribute Upgrades You can now use Smart Distribute to control the spacing in grids. You can easily adjust the vertical spacing between rows of layers, as well as the horizontal spacing between each layer in a row. We’ve also introduced a new ‘Tidy’ button to the Inspector. It quickly aligns a selection of multiple layers into a neat grid, making it even easier to create and manage complex layouts.
    • Save your documents to Sketch Cloud There’s a new option to save documents to Sketch Cloud by default in Preferences. If you choose this, you’ll still have the option to save local documents via a separate menu item and shortcut. You’ll also be able see and open your Cloud documents from the Welcome Window.

    What’s improved

    • Say hello to some new faces in our Data plugin. There are 102 new people to include in your designs.
    • You can now choose whether a text layer will auto resize horizontally or vertically to fit its content right from the Inspector.
    • We’ve moved a few things around in Preferences to clean up the General tab. Nothing’s missing, it just has a new home in one of the other tabs now.
    • We’ve added a new Select All in Artboard command to the Edit menu so you can quickly grab all of the layers on any Artboard you’ve selected. We’ve also given the different Select All commands their own sub-menu.
    • Measurements between layers should look a little cleaner when you zoom out. We’re removing the least relevant ones if they overlap to keep things easy to read.
    • Menus in the Inspector are now a little wider, so if you’ve got Symbol with long names, it should be easier to pick the one you want.
    • Along with the big upgrades, we’ve given Smart Distribute a boost with three handy improvements. It now works with vertical lines, supports negative spacing (so layers can overlap), and using it on layers inside a group is now as simple as clicking on the group itself.

    Known Issues

    • macOS Auto Save may not behave as expected and you won’t be able to access document versions via the Revert To menu. We’re currently working on a fix for this.
