Sketch 61.2: What's New and How to Use It
Sketch is a popular design tool for Mac, web and iPhone apps. It offers powerful features such as Symbols, Libraries, Smart Layout, Annotations and more. In this article, we'll take a look at what's new in Sketch 61.2, the latest version of Sketch, and how you can use it to create stunning designs.
One of the most exciting features in Sketch 61.2 is Annotations. This feature allows you to add comments to any point on the Canvas and start a conversation with your team or clients right in the context of your designs. You can also reply to existing comments and see all the feedback in one place. Annotations are synced between the Mac and web apps, so you can collaborate seamlessly across devices.
To add an annotation, simply select a layer or an artboard and click on the comment icon in the toolbar. You can also use the shortcut â+/. To hide or show annotations, press â+n.
Import Figma files
If you have Figma files that you want to open in Sketch, you'll be happy to know that Sketch 61.2 supports importing .fig files. This feature is still in beta, so you may encounter some issues with text rendering or other elements, but it's a great way to migrate your projects from Figma to Sketch or work with files from other designers.
To import a Figma file, go to File > Open Local document ( â§+â+O) and choose your .fig file, or drag it over the Sketch icon in the Dock. Sketch will convert the file and open it as a new document.
Another useful feature in Sketch 61.2 is Workspace templates. You can now turn any document into a template that anyone in your Workspace can use â ideal for repeatable tasks or creating consistent document setups. You can also access a bunch of beautiful, free and customizable templates â from presentations and social posts, to mockups and business cards â to help kickstart your next project.
To create a template from a document, go to File > Save as Templateâ¦ and give it a name. To use a template, go to the Workspace window ( â+O) and browse the Templates tab.
If you work with lots of Libraries, you may find it hard to keep track of all the Components you have available. That's why Sketch 61.2 introduces Document Libraries. You can now enable Libraries for a specific document instead of having them enabled for every document you're working on. This way, you can keep only the Components you need for each project and avoid cluttering your Insert window.
To manage Document Libraries, go to File > Document Settingsâ¦ > Libraries from any document. You can enable or disable any Library from there. When you open a document that has Document Libraries enabled, Sketch will automatically install them for you.
Smart Layout improvements
Sketch 61.2 also brings some improvements to Smart Layout, the feature that lets you create responsive layouts that adapt to their content. In this update, you'll find that right-to-left and bottom-to-top directions now behave exactly like their reverse counterparts (left-to-right and top-to-bottom). When you hide nested Symbol instances, Sketch will now preserve and remove spacing in a way that's more reliable and predictable. Finally, Sketch has made some tweaks that make working with Smart Layout in nested layouts smoother.
To use Smart Layout, select a group or a Symbol master and choose a direction from the Smart Layout section in the Inspector. You can also adjust the spacing between layers using the Resizing section.
Sketch 61.2 is a major update that adds some amazing features and enhancements to the design tool. Whether you want to collaborate with annotations, import Figma files, use templates or libraries, or create responsive layouts with Smart Layout, Sketch aa16f39245
