Sketch for Mac is an innovative and fresh look at vector drawing for the Mac. Its intentionally minimalist design is based upon a drawing space of unlimited size and layers, free of palettes, panels, menus, windows, and controls. Though simple to use, it offers powerful vector drawing and text tools like perfect Boolean operations, symbols, and powerful rulers, guides, and grids. The tool gives you the power, flexibility and speed you always wanted in a lightweight and easy-to-use package. Professional digital design for Mac! Download Now!

Sketch for macOS is built for modern graphic designers, and it shows in every fibre of the app. From a flexible workflow with support for Multiple Pages and Artboards. Powerful features like Symbols and Shared Styles are there to make reusing elements quick and easy. Easily create complex shapes with state-of-the-art vector boolean operations and take advantage of extensive layer styles. The app’s fully vector-based workflow makes it easy to create beautiful, high-quality artwork from start to finish.

Features and Highlights

Vectors mean scalability. Sketch’s Vector shapes easily adapt to changing styles, sizes and layouts, allowing you to avoid a lot of painful hand-tweaking. Sometimes though, you still need to account for physical pixels. The app supports this, meaning that you can fine tune when you need to.

In the app, every shape you create is an item in the Layers List. No more hidden paths. With flexible boolean operations, you can combine paths to create complex shapes, while all the parts stay 100% editable. Working on a large document? Name and group layers to keep things organized, then search by name when you need to find something.

The Inspector
Dimensions, positioning, opacity, blending modes… all the details that really matter in design. Want a unique place where you can control every one of these aspects for each object? Meet the new, completely reimagined Inspector.

"Here at Bohemian Coding we are designers too, so we face the same problems that you face every day. That’s why we crafted this incredibly powerful set of tools to make our lives easier and happier".

Reusable Elements
In UI design, repeating elements is something very common: buttons, bars, bubbles… all sorts of things. Copying and pasting soon becomes unworkable for big documents, when you make a change and need it to be reflected across every repeat. Wouldn’t it be awesome if the app could do this automatically for you? With Sketch, it can.

As designers one of the most tedious and non-creative parts of workflow is the need to cut-up, export, and (with the advent of retina devices) resize assets after every change. The tool’s built in exporting tools help to automate the process, making it a breeze.

The app is built exclusively for the Mac, and it takes full advantage of Apple’s frameworks. From the raw graphics power of Quartz, the beautiful crispness of Retina screens, through to usability features like Auto Save and Versions, we support all the native goodness that you’ve come to expect.

What's new in this version:

- Almost there!: You thought this was going to be version 100, didn’t you? We thought we’d sneak in one smaller update just before it with a few fun quality-of-life improvements and the usual collection of bug fixes.
- New prototype player: Playing your prototypes should now feel smoother, faster and more reliable. We’ve rolled out a brand new prototype player that works across the Mac, web and iOS apps. Plus, it also supports background blurs on Overlays and pinned elements on scrolling Artboards.
- Automatic saves for Workspace documents: We now automatically and regularly save your Workspace documents as you design — this means you don’t need to manually save at all unless you want to create a version. If you want to mark a specific milestone or moment of progress, you can quickly create a new version — and add a description or a star — by using ^⌘S.
- What’s improved:
- We’ve tidied up the Layer menu — you’ll now find a new Symbol submenu that groups together all Symbol-related actions.
- Tidy now also works on both the horizontal and vertical axes, making it even easier to align layers.
- We’ve added Foresight to the Tidy button in the Inspector — you’ll now see a preview when you hover over it, giving you a better idea of how your changes will look.
- What’s changed:
- Copying or dragging layers and Artboards from Sketch over to an external app as PNGs now works the same as JPG and TIFF exports, with the correct amount of pixels according to the scale, and always at 72 DPI.
- macOS Sonoma no longer supports converting EPS files, so you won’t be able to import EPS files into Sketch. You’ll need to convert your file to PDF first to import it. Sorry about that!
