Hey everyone We have a new Mac app beta out and ready to try!
You can download our beta from sketch.com/beta — you’ll need an active subscription to use it. If you already have a beta build, you can open it and follow the prompts to update.
If you run into any issues, the best way to share them with us is to click on the Send Beta Feedback button in the toolbar. This should open an email template in your email client of choice to fill and send to us.
If you experience a crash, please do send the crash reports that appear when you reopen Sketch (both Apple’s and our own) — we read every single one of these and use this information to make Sketch more stable.
In this release, we’re fixing bugs, preventing crashes, and shipping a collection of small quality-of-life updates.
You no longer need to manually save Workspace documents. We’ll automatically save your changes while you’re working and when you close a document.
You can still create new versions using File > Save Version (⌃⌘S) and add a description, giving everyone a quick way to see what’s changed when browsing a document’s version history in the web app.
In the web app, Viewers and Guests can click the See Latest Version button to get an up-to-date preview of a document that Editors are working on but haven’t created a new version of in a while. Star a version in your document so Viewers and Guests only see the latest preview of the starred version, leaving you in control of which versions Viewers and Guests can see.
We’ve added Foresight to the Tidy button in the Inspector — you’ll now see a preview when you hover over it, giving you a better idea of how your changes will look. Tidy now also works on both the horizontal and vertical axis, making it even easier to align layers.
You can find a full list of release notes, including changes and bug fixes at sketch.com/beta
We hope you enjoy our latest beta — and look forward to your thoughts and feedback!
