Sketch 57.1

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.

What’s New:

Version 57:

  • If you use the arrow keys on your keyboard with the Rotate tool to adjust a layer, we’ll now hide the selection handles and show the right values in the Inspector
  • Sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish between solid and gradient presets in the Color Popover, so we’ve given them their own their own headings to make it easier to find what you need
  • You can now paste rich text from the Clipboard directly into the Canvas by choosing Paste as Rich Text in the Edit menu. Previously, we only enabled this in text editing mode, but now it’s always there
  • We’ve changed a few arrangement shortcuts. Send Backward is now ⌘ [ and Bring Forward is ⌘ ]. Send to Back is now ⌘ ⌥ [ and Bring to Front is ⌘ ⌥ ]. If you’d like to use the old shortcut or something totally different, you can create custom keyboard shortcuts in System Preferences
  • We’ve made it easier to work with very large grids. Scrolling around them, moving them and changing colors should all feel faster and smoother
  • You can now set a default layer style from the Layer menu in vector editing mode if you’ve selected a single path or shape group


  • You might see the wrong cursor if you hover over Inspector labels with your language set as Chinese
  • The Layer List would scroll to the top if you hit Undo in a document with a long list of layers
  • Smart Distribute handles could look squashed if you launched Sketch on a Retina display then moved the document to a non-Retina display
  • You wouldn’t see a proper preview of your work in Quick Look in the Finder
  • Where you couldn’t insert an image by selecting one from your Photos Library in the Finder sheet. This might mean we’ll ask for permission to access your photos if you haven’t granted it already
  • Fixed a crash that could occur if you tried to apply an Outer Border to certain paths
  • An Artboard might lose its preset if you converted it into a Symbol
  • A landscape Artboard might unexpectedly switch to portrait if you held shift and dragged to resize it
  • Images might not be properly included as part of a group if that image overlapped with a nearby Artboard
  • Inserting a line while holding shift wouldn’t always respect pixel rounding
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when you try to print or adjust your print settings
  • Pressing Control and Option keys at the same time wouldn’t correctly show the distance between a text layer’s baseline and another text layer’s cap height
  • A Cloud Library update would fail because of an incorrect version/compatibility number. We’ll also be clearer in telling you when a Library is incompatible
  • You couldn’t set any border position other than inner as part of a default layer style
