Sketch 43.1

Sketch is an innovative and fresh look at vector drawing for the Mac. Its intentionally minimalist design is based upon a drawing space of unlimited size and layers, free of palettes, panels, menus, windows, and controls. Though simple to use, it offers powerful vector drawing and text tools like perfect Boolean operations, symbols, and powerful rulers, guides, and grids.


WHAT’S NEW

Version 43.1:

New
  • Vector Editing - While editing or creating shapes, additional handles related to the current selection are shown, offering more convenient editing.
Improved
  • Revised file format
  • When a shape has only a shadow, Sketch will no longer clip the fill area when the layer’s opacity is reduced. To get that effect, give it a transparent fill instead
  • Significantly improves SVG export when dealing with inner and outer borders by making paths simpler, and avoiding the use of masks
  • SVG exporting via SketchTool no longer supports the namespace argument
  • Improves SVG import by removing superfluous groups after import
  • Improves the way log messages from plugins are displayed in Console.app
  • Plugins that enhance Sketch but don’t have any commands will no longer appear in the Plugins menu
  • Sketch will no longer load and run certain older plugins. If you find that one of your plugins no longer works, please contact the author for an updated version
  • There’s a new version of Mirror that handles large Artboards better, and fixes some connection issues
  • Nested Symbol overrides are now presented in an alphabetical order to make Symbols easier to find
  • Image Fills are now also supported in the Touch Bar
  • Improves the look of the Rotation Dial on the Touch Bar making it easier to read
  • In the vector editor, the Zoom to Selection command now zooms into the vector point selection, rather than the layer selection
  • Updates the look of selected handle control points in the vector editor
  • When rotating a layer using the Command key shortcut, we now show the rotation value below the pointer
  • The Welcome Window can now be resized
  • Improves keyboard shortcut compatibility with Cyrillic keyboard localizations
  • Reducing the size of images in a document is now faster with improved performance
Fixed
  • Fixes a rare issue when opening documents, Artboard exporting, and Mirror connectivity
  • Fixes a bug where dragging shape layers to combine them in the Layer List could add them in the wrong order
  • Fixes a bug where selecting an insertion tool would not immediately update the pointer
  • Fixes a bug where gradients would not be rendered if there were too many overlapping stops
  • Fixes a bug in the vector editor where the Inspector would not always update to show the correct coordinates
  • Fixes a bug where layers would be instantly deselected after being selected in the Layer List and Canvas
  • Fixes an SVG exporting bug that could mask far-away shadows on shapes
  • Fixes a bug where a radial gradient on a rectangle would export incorrectly to SVG
  • Fixes a bug where snapping to the center of a shape in the vector editor would make the shape wobble
  • Fixes a bug where a Symbol with an image layer and an Image Fill would apply the override incorrectly
  • Fixes a bug where text overrides in Symbols would not move adjacent layers if they were flush with the text layer
  • Fixes a bug where the Rotate Copies, and Create Symbol dialogs could be resized
  • Fixes a bug where Shift-dragging a handle control point in the vector editor would not work correctly
  • Fixes a bug where editing a constraint-locked shape would give unexpected results
  • Fixes a bug where the Close/Open Path menu item would not match the button’s label in the Inspector
  • Fixes a bug in the vector editor where changing the point type would not be visible on the Canvas
  • Improves selection behaviour when using Wacom tablets
  • Fixes a bug where Artboards could be mistakenly masked by other layers
  • Fixes a bug where the rotation tooltip would not disappear after rotation is finished
  • Fixes a bug where inserting a shape with the Option key held would not immediately update the preview in the Canvas
  • Fixes a bug where new subpaths would not always be inserted on top of the selected layer
  • While in rotation mode, the rotation value would not always appear on click-and-drag
  • Fixes a possible crash while switching Pages with the Inspector popovers open
  • Fixes a crash that could occur when editing text on the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
  • Fixes a bug where Make Grid would not rename duplicate layers properly
  • Fixes a bug where resizing an Artboard with complex contents could freeze Sketch
