Sketch 40

Sketch 40


Sketch: graphic design for a digital world. Powerful tools and an elegant interface, in a single award-winning package. Because making beautiful things should be a joy, not a burden.

Sketch supports multiple fills, borders and shadows per layer; has powerful non-destructive boolean operations; smart pixel alignment; and makes exporting a breeze with automatic slicing and multiple resolution export. 

Vector tools and basic shapes are the foundation; whether you are designing icons, websites, interfaces or anything else. Combine these into complex shapes with non-destructive boolean operations, leaving you free to edit them in the future, then apply advanced layer style options like multiple shadows, fills, gradients, noise, blending, background blurring, and more.

Sketch doesn’t just do shapes, of course. Imported images can be rotated, scaled, cropped and masked. The best-in-class text tool lets you add beautiful typography to your designs, using native font rendering, so you can be sure that text always looks 100% accurate!

Brand new to Sketch 3, Symbols allow you to reuse entire groups of content in multiple places in your design. Think of interface elements such as buttons, headers and footers. Change them once, and they update everywhere in your document.

Built for the Mac, Sketch supports OS X’s Versions and Auto Save, letting you focus on your work instead of hitting CMD+S. Keep your work safely in sync across multiple Mac computers with iCloud. And take Sketch full screen to maximise the size of your canvas.

All this power is deliciously baked into Sketch’s single-window interface. Everything is there, tucked away until you need it. A simple interface with powerful tools.

Now everything is possible.

What’s New

Version 40:

  • Vector editing now has support for editing multiple shapes at the same time
  • Text can now be styled to be uppercase or lowercase. This is a non-destructive setting which can also be made part of a Shared Text Style
Other Enhancements
  • Selected layers have new selection handles
  • Edit › Scale now remembers which corner you last scaled from
  • It’s now easier to upload a document as a new share to Sketch Cloud
  • You can now easily unregister your copy of Sketch from under the Sketch menu
  • All legacy plugins have been moved to their own menu
  • Vectorize Selection has been removed from the bitmap editor
  • The vector editor now responds immediately when a modifier key is pressed, instead of waiting until the pointer moves
  • When editing an open path, the last point is now selected by default rather than the first point
  • When closing an open path by clicking on its first point, you can now continue to drag the point instead of immediately exiting the vector editor
  • Many improvements to snapping in the vector editor
  • When editing vectors, you can now add further layers to your selection without exiting the vector editor
  • Holding the Shift key when dragging vector points now locks their movement to one direction
  • Improves appearance of selected points in the vector editor
  • When hovering over a path in the vector editor, we now show exactly where a new point would be inserted on the path
  • When deleting a vector point, we now select the next point along the path instead of exiting the vector editor
  • Layers appearing outside a Symbol master’s bounds can now also be selected by their visible area outside the Artboard
  • The warning dialog when flattening layers with necessary subpaths has been simplified
  • Improves performance when inserting and selecting layers in complex documents
  • Improves performance when using large blurs or background blurs
  • Improves the speed of Undo, especially in complex documents
  • Many further improvements to memory usage and rendering performance
Bug Fixes
  • Fixes a bug where network performance could degrade drastically when Sketch Mirror was active
  • Fixes a bug where the Mirror toolbar icon wouldn’t update immediately to show an iOS device was available
  • Fixes a bug where shape previews in the Layer List would not update properly in rare cases
  • Fixes a bug where you could still interact with vector points when the Option key was held
  • Fixes a bug where holding the Command key in the vector editor would normally draw straight lines but not when closing paths
  • Fixes a bug where points in vector editing could appear blurry
  • Fixes a bug where it would be difficult to exit the vector editor by clicking outside it when zoomed in far
  • Fixes a bug where double-clicking a vector point when there was a multiple selection would make the wrong point curved
  • Fixes a bug where Command-dragging a handle control point to make it Disconnected would also make it stop drawing
  • Fixes a bug where undoing document color/gradient presets would not immediately be reflected in the popover
  • Fixes a bug where angular gradients would appear upside down when exported to PDF
  • Fixes a bug where Shared Styles would not always be correctly included in the undo history
  • Fixes a bug where Reducing File Size would fail to recognize some images in the document
  • Fixes a bug where using the keyboard to navigate layers would not refresh the Canvas
  • Fixes a bug where bitmaps wouldn’t be trimmed after deleting portions of them in the bitmap editor
  • Fixes a bug where detached Symbols would revert to their original size
  • Fixes a bug where Shared Styles could not be updated when editing subpaths in the vector editor
  • Fixes a bug where detached Symbols end up distorted if the Symbol size was bigger than its contents
  • Fixes a bug where editing multiple layers could leave text layers in an inconsistent state
  • Fixes a bug where performing a union operation on multiple lines could end up shifting their positions
  • Fixes a bug where line layers could behave unexpectedly after changing the thickness of their border
  • Fixes a bug where pressing the Escape key on the keyboard would select the parent layer but not refresh the Canvas
  • Fixes a bug where using the Tab key to select the next or previous layer would not refresh the Canvas properly
  • Fixes a bug where copy/pasting Symbol instances could also create unwanted Symbol masters
  • Fixes a bug where Option-dragging to duplicate layers in the Layer List could also duplicate any Shared Style used in that layer

  1. cant install app, it says its damaged. i try to go to security and preferences but it only gives me app store and app store identified developers.

    1. Here is what you need to do:

      Option 1
      For a certain application run in Terminal:
      sudo xattr -rd /Applications/

      Option 2
      To disable checks globally run in Terminal:
      sudo spctl –master-disable

      1. works perfectly! the welcome screen still shows “welcome to sketch 3” is it normal?
