    • 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.

    • 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.

    Highlights

    New in Sketch 67

    • 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.

Sketch 64 Updates

  1. Version 64

    Released

    Highlights

    New in Sketch 64

    • 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.

    • 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.

Sketch 62 Updates

  1. Version 62

    Released

    Highlights

    New in Sketch 62

    • 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.

    • 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?”

    • 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.

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.
