Terminology updates

We’ve made a few terminology changes. You’ll see these changes across the Mac app and the web app, as well as on our website and in our documentation.

  • Cloud/Sketch Cloud was where you uploaded documents, viewed them in the browser, and left comments. We’ll now refer to this as the web app.
  • Although the Mac app’s name is “Sketch”, we’ll call it the Mac app in most of our communications and documentation to distinguish it from the web app.
  • Contributors used to refer to anyone who had access to the Mac app. Now, we’ll refer to them as Editors.
  • Previously you would create a Sketch for Teams in the web app to share projects and designs with others. We now call this a Workspace. Likewise, Cloud Documents are now Workspace documents
  • SK3/legacy licenses were the primary way to purchase Sketch. Now, we refer to them as legacy Mac-only licenses and they are no longer for sale. The best way to use Sketch today is with a subscription which, beside the Mac app, includes shared online document storage, developer handoff and much more.
