Share your documents in My Drafts

 

New

 

 

Last month, we introduced My Drafts — a place to store private documents in your Workspace. Now, you can share individual documents in My Drafts with specific people using that document’s share settings.

Sharing documents in My Drafts is a great way to give your work a smaller audience without needing to share it with everyone in your Workspace.

Invite non-Team members to edit your Team’s documents

 

Improvement

 

 

You can now invite non-Team members to edit individual documents in your Team’s workspace. Better still, it doesn’t cost you anything. They’ll just need their own valid license or a Contributor seat on another Team.

Support for short Cloud sharing URLs is ending

 

Notice

 

 

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

 

New

 

 

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

 

New

 

 

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

 

Improvement

 

 

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

 

New

 

 

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

 

Improvement

 

 

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.
