Sketch Beta test Last 10 Updates

    Hi beta testers,

    The newest release (8.4.A.1.0), which adds private messaging and a few other features, replaces the current beta. This means that a few features will temporarily disappear from the app (screen recording and layer blending).

    The blending option is planned as a premium feature for subscribers in a later release, while a new version of screen recording will be made available in the next beta.

    Do you want to beta test this app? Check it here

    Hello sketchers!

    We have a new beta (8.4.C.0.21) with some new features to try out:

    If you have Android Lollipop or later (5.0+), you can now create, view, and share a screen recording from the editor menu.

    With the layer lock feature you can block editing of a layer to prevent accidental changes.

    The symmetry tool has a new option for creating repeating tiles across the canvas. You can adjust the size of the tiles with the slider, similar to the other symmetry tools.

    This version also comes with a number of bug fixes. Please let us know what you think!

    Dear testers,

    We have just released a new beta with some bug fixes and minor tweaks. Most importantly we have attempted to cure the problem with sketches disappearing from the private gallery that a few users have reported. If you have seen this problem, please install the update and let us know how it works.

    Hello beta testers!

    We have just released a new beta with fixes and a few new goodies. Let us know what you think!

    If you would like to try something a little more advanced, check out the blending mode option for layers shown in the screenshot (the background is a photo of the carpet at the Sony office). The Otto on the left has blending mode set to "multiply", which makes him sink into the carpet. The Otto on the right is how it looks with "normal" blending. I have also "dyed" my carpet with rainbow watercolor by setting my drawing layer to multiply.

    More things to come soon!

    Hi beta testers!

    There is a new beta out for you to try out. In addition to bug fixes, we have tweaked a few of the brushes in response to user feedback. The most noticeable one is that the pencil is reverted to how it was before the beta, so that is draws thicker and grainier strokes.

    This time we have included a settings screen in the editor with some experimental features:

    Brush stroke smoothing will even out some of the squiggliness that occurs on some devices when trying to draw a straight line. Later we might add the possibility of changing the amount of smoothing. Please give us feedback on this one!

    Brush stroke animations only work for three brushes: watercolor, dots, and stars. This is an experimental feature that is meant to add some feel and liveliness to some of the brushes. Depending on feedback we might do more work on this or remove it.

    If you turn off "lock device orientation", you will be able to rotate your device in the editor and the UI will rotate with you. Also, when you open a landscape sketch on a phone, the UI will no longer rotate automatically if this setting is turned off.

    The last one (interpolation) is a special setting for developers and beta testers. It makes it possible to more easily inspect the individual pixels of a sketch when you zoom in. This mode is much slower than the normal one (it will probably make the editor lag a lot and hard to use), so use it sparingly.

    Let us know what you think!

    Dear testers,

    We are trying to figure out what is causing crashes for users running Android 6 (Marshmallow). If you are using such a device and Sketch crashes, please try to remember as much as you can about what you were doing when it crashed, and tell us here about it.
