Looking for an InVision alternative now that it’s shutting down? With Sketch you can boost collaboration in your team, create and share prototypes faster, and (at no extra cost) make developer handoff a breeze.
Why switching to Sketch makes sense
Wondering how you’ll maintain your workflow without InVision? With Sketch, you’ll be up and running in no time.
Collaborate in real-timeFind out more
With a Sketch subscription you get a Mac app for editing, plus our web app with a shared Workspace for viewing, commenting and inspecting designs from anywhere. Better still, invite as many Viewers as you like, for free.
Build and share prototypes anywhereFind out more
Prototyping in Sketch is made for speed, helping you build, share and get feedback, fast. And no need to worry about the learning curve: our intuitive tools will have you making magic from day one, without ever touching code.
Free developer tools for handoffFind out more
With Sketch’s handoff tools, any dev can grab the details they need in the web app, from any part of a design. And if you’re a dev you can use Sketch’s handoff tools for free — because why pay for a design app you don’t even use? 😉

In this guide, you’ll find everything you need to move to Sketch. Learn how to bring your prototypes over and discover how Sketch can deliver on collaboration, prototyping and handoff — and so much more.
What’s the quickest way to create a prototype in Sketch?
Can I move InVision prototypes to Sketch?
If you used Sketch to build the prototype, then yes! Just be sure to set a Start Point so that it appears in your Workspace. If you built the prototype in InVision, you’ll need to recreate the prototype in Sketch.
Once you’ve imported your prototype, you can test it on your Mac, on any browser, and on multiple devices using our app for iOS and iPadOS.
How much does it cost to share prototypes with other people?
Nothing! You can invite collaborators to view, comment and inspect Sketch documents (including prototypes) from any browser, on any operating system, for free.
In Sketch, can I share just the prototype without giving access to the Artboards?
Not right now. However, you can share a specific version of a prototype — or simply ask your collaborators to view it fullscreen.
What does InVision have that Sketch doesn’t?
- States and gestures: We haven’t yet added certain triggers like pressed and hover states — but they’re coming soon! 🎉
- Design system documentation: Sketch doesn’t have a way to manage dedicated component documentation, although you can leave notes directly on the Canvas, or add them as comments.
- Selective sharing: You can share specific flows and Artboards in Sketch, but Viewers will be able to view other Artboards in the document too.
- Commenting in prototypes: While you can comment anywhere in a document, we don’t support commenting inside prototypes (but we’re working on it).
- Password-protected prototypes: If you want to limit access to certain people, add them as Viewers to the document instead of sharing the document using a public link.
- Anchor points: We don’t currently support anchor points in prototypes.
Can Sketch prototypes have interactive elements like fixed headers and footers or states?
Yes. You can assign fixed elements in prototypes that contain (typically) static components like menu bars, toolbars and footers. In addition, you can also add links, hotspots, start points and scrolling prototypes. And keep an eye open for pressed and hovers states, which we’re adding soon!
Does Sketch have commenting like InVision?
Yes, commenting in Sketch works much like it does in InVision. Use the Mac, web and iOS apps to add new comments or replies anywhere on the Canvas, add markup and emojis, resolve and reopen comments, and change their visibility. However, you can’t directly comment in a Sketch prototype (yet).
How does Sketch handle developer handoff?
With our web app’s handoff tools, any developer can grab the information they need for any part of a design — such as layer attributes, distances between layers, color variables and tokens, text, CSS attributes and more.
Our developer handoff tools are free, and developers don’t need a Mac to view, inspect or export assets either — all they need to do is create a free Sketch account and access the document using the web app.
I have a Mac-only license. If I switch to a subscription, can I keep the time I have left on my license?
Yes, you’ll get credit for any time you have left over! Please contact us and our Account Operations team will be happy to help you.
