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.
Color Management – Sketch adds support for working and exporting documents in sRGB and P3 color spaces.
Find and Replace – You can now find a color you’re using, so it can be replaced throughout your document.
Sketch Cloud – Files can now be downloaded from Sketch Cloud – when sharing with Sketch Cloud, the document itself is uploaded with its content.
Symbol Scaling – Symbol instances can now be scaled independently from the Symbol master using the Scale command.
Imported Symbols now remain linked to their Library when copied and pasted between documents
Library previews can now be added by creating an Artboard titled “Library Preview” in the Library document
Improved performance for documents featuring many Symbol overrides
Updated the built-in “iOS UI Design” Library for iOS 11
Improved PDF import of non-rectangular outline masks
You can now hold down the Shift key during launch to disable all Sketch plugins
A shadow’s spread can be set to a negative value to decrease the size of the object casting the shadow
Improved performance of SVG export when exporting Artboards from pages containing many other Artboards
Improved Sketch Cloud UI with a number of refinements, plus added the ability to request access to privately shared documents
Uploads to Sketch Cloud can now be cancelled whilst the upload is in progress
Improved the way overrides are displayed for nested Symbols if their values had been overridden

The toolbar now shows which tool you’re currently working with
The shortcuts to quickly toggle borders and fills (B and F) now also work in the vector editor
Improved appearance of shadows applied to complex shapes such as outlined text layers
Improved various boolean operation results, particularly when subtracting overlapping shapes
Improved selection of shapes with thin borders and no fill
The “iOS App Icon” template has been updated to include Smooth Corners and Symbol scaling
When replacing a layer with a Symbol, the Symbol now inherits the same size as the previous layer
Artboard presets for Android devices are now named correctly
Improved padding for the iPhone X Status Bar Symbols within the built-in iOS UI Design Library
The magnifier tool now uses the document color space when determining the color of the pixel that’s selected or hovered over
Fixed a number of bugs where boolean operations on certain overlapping shapes would have unexpected results

Fixed a bug where resetting a bitmap to its original size wouldn’t be reflected in the Inspector
Fixed a bug where the size value in the Inspector wouldn’t update after using the Scale command on a layer
Fixed a bug where repositioning Symbol Artboards within a Library document would trigger a Library Update

Fixed a problem that prevented CocoaScript from working correctly on the latest version of macOS High Sierra
Fixed a rare bug where the contents of a Symbol could appear hidden when applying a text override
Fixed a bug where shadows applied to filled layers with either a Center or Outside border might not show as expected
Fixed a bug where shadows would be clipped when applied to certain lines and borders
Fixed a bug where nested Symbol content could be unexpectedly clipped in rare cases
Fixed a bug where a document’s reference to its shared link in Sketch Cloud would be reset when cancelling a Save As… action
Fixed a bug where the size value in the Inspector wouldn’t update after resetting a Symbol instance to its original size
Fixed a bug where Detach from Symbol would misplace the layer’s selection bounds in rare cases
Fixed a bug where Symbol previews would be reloaded several times when expanding an elongated Overrides menu
Fixed a bug where the height of new multi-line text layers would be set automatically when click-and-dragging to insert a fixed-width text layer
Fixed a bug where changing the size of a text layer within a group could cause it to shift position unexpectedly
Fixed a bug where inserting points on rounded curves might have been unreliable
Fixed a bug where dragging a handle control point in the vector editor wouldn’t snap to all possible locations
Fixed a bug where guides would appear to be displayed at the wrong position after ungrouping Artboards
Fixed a bug where dragging layers set to export as JPG from the Layer List to the desktop would result in poor quality exports
Fixed a bug where split paths wouldn’t maintain their correct position in the hierarchy
Fixed a bug where layers inserted using the Pencil tool would always be positioned at the top of the Layer List
Fixed a bug where clicking on the Canvas wouldn’t exit the radial gradient editor
Fixed a bug where the color picker could contain another color picker when choosing a color
Fixed a bug where the Welcome window wouldn’t show the correct document preview
Fixed a rare bug where uploads to Sketch Cloud might appear to be slightly blurry
Fixed a bug where a 0-radius star couldn’t be selected on the Canvas

Fixed a bug where the color picker wouldn’t be scrollable in some rare cases
Fixed a bug where the color picker wouldn’t always display the correct HEX value
Fixed a rare crash that could occur when converting text to outlines
Fixed a bug where the expected color profile wouldn’t always be assigned to images exported by dragging from the Layer List
