Sketch 55

Sketch is an innovative and fresh look at vector drawing. 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 55:

  • Lines, arrows, layers and new Symbols all snap to Grids more reliably
  • Copying and pasting Symbols and pages between documents is faster and more reliable
  • Layers now snap to rotated text
Fixed bugs:
  • Cutting a selection from a bitmap image and moving the selection using the arrow keys could undo the cut
  • Using boolean operations to combining certain shapes wouldn’t always produce the right results
  • Hovering over a Symbol instance that contained a mask would ignore the bounds of the mask
  • You could still select items in Data menu with you’ve selected a Symbol instance with no overrides enabled
  • Exporting dashed strokes with shadows would show a continuous shadow rather than a dashed one
  • Pressing Tab while editing text overrides in the Inspector would focus back on the Canvas instead
  • Grids and Layouts didn’t hide consistently when zooming out
  • Caused baselines to move when adjusting Text Styles and Text Style overrides
  • Applying Library updates could reset existing Symbol overrides
  • Text styled with different colors in Symbols wouldn’t retain its styling when it was overridden with anything beginning with a non-alphanumeric character
  • Unchecked overrides would be checked again after duplicating a Symbol master
  • Content in the Canvas might flicker when switching apps in Fullscreen mode
  • Scrolling to make panning around the Canvas smooth again
  • Replacing a missing font wouldn’t update Shared Text Styles
  • Stopped layers snapping to text layers, depending on the text layer’s alignment or rotation
  • Fixed various bugs where layers within rotated groups couldn’t be measured correctly
  • Dragging a rotated layer within a group or combined shape could snap erratically to the pixel grid
  • The Symbol contextual menu would not show the Detach all contents from Symbol alternate menu item
  • The correct font weights wouldn’t always show in the inspector
  • Selecting to Undo changes to a gradient would result in the wrong gradient point being selected in the color popover
  • A layer with multiple Angular Gradient Fills applied would render only the first applied fill
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when combining shapes
  • Fixed a crash related to Symbols that could occur while using certain plugins
  • Fixed a crash that could happen with certain font weights
  • Pressing the Space bar while inserting layers wouldn’t allow repositioning of the layer being inserted
  • Certain paths with arrow markers couldn’t be resized repeatedly
  • Undo wouldn’t work as expected when editing text
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when a PostScript name was missing from an installed font
  • A group’s selection wouldn’t always update when moving layers within the group using the arrow keys
  • The Ends controls for dashed borders wouldn’t be enabled when expected
  • Fixed a bug in sketchtool where the --without-activating argument wouldn’t prevent Sketch from becoming active
  • Certain adjoining lines caused unexpected snapping behaviour
