What’s new

  • Improvements & bug fixes We’re taking a moment between big updates to spend some time fixing some common bugs and crashes, as well as applying a little polish here and there. Thank you for your reports!

What’s improved

  • We’re continuing to work hard on a new experimental feature, Smart Layout in groups. You can read about the latest updates on our community forum.
  • We now only show the notifications icon (bell) in the toolbar if you have notifications to review.
  • We’ve improved how things look when content is a little slow to load on the Canvas. It should feel more natural now.
  • We’re continuing to make our Figma file importer more reliable, and this update includes a few enhancements here. Thanks for all your feedback!

What’s fixed

  • Fixes a bug that caused marquee selections to incorrectly select boolean shapes when the selection included sub-shapes but not the compound boolean shape itself.
  • Fixes a crash that could occur when you changed the order of images fills in a Symbol source, if any instances of that Symbol had loaded already.
  • Fixes an issue in the JavaScript API where using text style with Style objects would cause Sketch to crash.
  • Fixes a bug that made Library names difficult to read in the Document Settings pane after you changed Sketch’s appearance.
  • Fixes a bug that stopped the Workspace window from remembering the Workspace you had selected before you quit Sketch.
  • Fixes a bug that stopped plugins from being able to control trimming options for exports via our API. Also, by default, Symbol instances will no longer be automatically trimmed when you export them.
  • Fixes a bug that stopped the image editing tools from appearing when you double-clicked on an image.
  • Fixes a bug that stopped the Canvas from updating when you made changes to layers that involved certain combinations of groups and masks.
  • Fixes a crash that could occur when trying to undo an edit to a comment.
  • Fixes a bug that caused export previews in the Inspector to appear at a higher resolution than the actual export.
  • Fixes a bug that caused an error icon to appear misplaced if a Symbol could not be displayed.
  • Fixes a bug that named all new Collections you created to be called “New Collection”, regardless of how many Collections with that name already existed. Now we number your new Collections so not all new Collections are “New Collection”.
  • Fixes a bug that could occur if you tried to apply a background blur to a bitmap without an alpha channel.
  • Fixes a bug that caused Artboard names to render incorrectly in certain scenarios.
  • Fixes a bug that stopped you from being able to paste images using the CMYK color space into Sketch.
  • Fixes a bug that caused text from a Linked Data source to always insert at random from the Inspector, even if you had unchecked the option for this.
  • Fixes a bug that could block you from deleting empty groups if the last layer in that group was cut or moved out of it.
