Support for short Cloud sharing URLs is ending

After 30 November 2020, we’re ending support for short sharing URLs for Cloud documents. If you’ve shared a Cloud document with a public URL, the older short URL will no longer work.

Please replace any older short URLs you’ve shared publicly with the new, longer URL you’ll find in the document’s settings.

Note: This change will only affect public URLs. If you are logged in to Cloud and use a short URL to visit a document you have access to, we’ll continue to redirect you to its longer URL.

Comment Threads and Better Notifications

Today we’re introducing the option to reply to comments on Cloud Documents and start threads. You’ll see a new Reply option under every comment. Try it out and enjoy more organized conversations!

Along with threads, we’ve improved the controls for notifications. Now you can choose to get notifications for new comments on a specific thread, a single Artboard (or a selection of them) or the a whole document. It’s up to you!

Send documents to Trash

Not had your morning coffee yet? Accidentally deleted that Library you and your team all rely on? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Now, when you delete a document, it’ll go to the Trash. So if you accidentally delete something, no worries. You can any restore it from the Trash in a couple of clicks.

We’ll automatically permanently delete documents in the Trash after 90 days, but if you want to go full Marie Kondo you can delete individual documents permanently or empty the whole thing.

Color Variables support in Cloud Inspector

With version 69 of the Mac app, we introduced Color Variables and now we’re happy to say that Cloud Inspector supports them, too.

When you inspect a Cloud document in the browser, you’ll see the name of the Color Variable a layer uses. Click on that name to view its value and copy it in any format you need.

Open documents in the Mac app

We’ve made it quicker and easier to open any Cloud document in the Mac app, right from your browser. Click on the Open in Sketch button at the bottom of the sidebar in a document’s overview to open it in the Mac app.

If you’re viewing a single Artboard, you’ll see a new icon to the right of the zoom controls to open up that specific Artboard in the Mac app.

Finally you can also hover over any document’s thumbnail in your workspace, click and choose Open in Sketch.

Note: This feature will only work with version 64 or newer of the Mac app.

Delete Document Versions

Keeping your documents tidy is important, and no-one wants to accidentally download or use an incorrect version of a design. So, we’ve added the option to delete individual document versions.

Hover over the version you want to delete, click on the and choose Delete Version…

Individual Asset Exports are here!

Today we’re introducing the option to export individual assets. Now, you can use Cloud Inspector to select a layer and download it using any of the export presets set up for it. Check out the documentation for more details.

We’ve updated our Terms of Service

Head to our Terms & Policies page to take a look at our updated Terms of Service for the Sketch platform and, if you’re a Mac app user, our License Agreement.

We’re changing Cloud document URLs

From 29 April 2020, we’re changing the format of Cloud document URLs to make them more secure. After this time, the URL you send to others when you share a Cloud document with will be different.

Don’t worry — URLs with the old format will still work and redirect for a while, but we’ll phase these out by October 2020. Before then, be sure to update any links or bookmarks where you use a Cloud document URL.

If you have any questions, please speak to our Customer Service team for support.

Export Assets directly from Cloud

We’ve introduced a new Export Assets button in the sidebar of each document’s overview page.

If you’ve marked layers as exportable or created Slices in your Sketch document, anyone with access to your document can download those exported assets directly from Cloud without opening the Mac app.
