May 2018

What's New

  • Increased speed: Craft Manager version 1.0.63 introduced significant improvements to the syncing process, reducing overall average sync time by as much as 50% (and often more!).
  • Unchanged artboards are not synced: Along with general sync improvements, a new feature has been introduced that prevents unchanged artboards from syncing, even when syncing all artboards.
  • Seamless integration with Anima’s Auto Layout plugin: Craft now integrates with the popular Auto Layout plugin from Anima. When Craft detects that this plugin is installed, it will automatically use Auto Layout’s Prepare for export to other plugins feature behind the scenes. This allows your exports to use all of your specified layout rules correctly without requiring the extra step of preparing for export manually.
  • Improved artboard preview during publishing: An improved preview window for published artboards has been added to Craft Manager, making it clearer which artboards will be synced.

Bug Fixes

  • Sync issue caused by emojis in layer names: Using emojis in Sketch layer names no longer prevents Inspect from properly processing the file.
  • Symbol artboards not syncing: Artboards that are linked to symbols will now sync as expected.
  • Craft fails to sync duplicated artboards: Craft no longer fails to sync an artboard after duplicating it or creating a new artboard and renaming the original artboard in Sketch.
  • Support keyboard shortcuts for syncing: Using the Ctrl+Shift+A and Crtl+Shift+S shortcuts now initiate sync immediately.
  • @2x modifier added to assets despite @1x option being selected: Craft no longer adds a @2x modifier when the @1x setting is enabled in sync preferences.
April 2018

What's New

  • Automatically rename duplicate artboards: Currently, Craft relies on the names of artboards to uniquely identify them within InVision. Therefore, if multiple artboards have the same name, only one of the duplicate artboards will be synced. This has resulted in what appears to be sync failures or hotspots going missing. To prevent confusion, Craft will now detect when artboards with duplicate names are being synced, and it will offer to rename them for you by adding incrementing numerals to end of the duplicate artboard names.
  • Freehand sign in through Craft Manager: The sign-in flow for the Craft Freehand plugin with Sketch is now part of Craft Manager. This should streamline authentication and make it more intuitive.
  • Improved resizing for straight lines in Freehand: The behavior of the resizing handles used to resize relatively straight lines you've drawn has improved, making it easier to change the length of your line (or a thin shape) without changing the proportions of the line.
    Pro tip: Hold Shift while drawing a new line for a perfect straight angle!

Bug Fixes

  • Sketch crashing when using Craft Prototype: Pressing the C key to create hotspots was crashing Sketch in some instances.
  • Large Sketch files failing to sync: Sketch files with numerous complex pages and symbols could get stuck when detaching symbols, causing the sync process to fail.
  • Craft crashing when accessing preferences on OS X El Capitan: Accessing the preferences for Craft in the menu bar on OS X El Capitan caused Craft to crash.
  • Text character spacing values ignoring decimal values in Inspect: Character spacing values for text fields synced to InVision, using Craft Sync, were ignoring decimal values in Inspect.
  • Wrong thumbnail displayed when initially syncing a new prototype: When syncing a new prototype, Craft was displaying a thumbnail from a previously synced prototype.
  • Artboards prefixed with a hyphen/minus symbol (-) are no longer excluded from sync: The ability to exclude artboards prefixed with (-) from syncing with Craft is now supported by the new Craft Manager publishing flow.
  • Craft Manager window displayed in incorrect location for vertically stacked monitors: The Craft Manager window no longer opens at the bottom of the screen if multi-screen setup is vertically stacked.
March 2018

Bug Fixes

  • High CPU usage: Users will no longer experience an issue that was causing CPU spikes when using Craft Manager.
  • Canceling Publishing: Craft + Sync again supports canceling the current sync.
  • Stability and speed improvements: A number of fixes were introduced for stability and speed improvements when using Craft Publishing.
  • Password manager windows hidden: Users will no longer see an an issue where password managers were hidden by Craft Manager.
  • Improved invalid credentials message: When entering an invalid username/password an 'invalid refresh token' message was shown. This now displays a meaningful message.
  • Mac menu bar item apps hiding Craft Manager: Menu bar item control apps such as Bartender were hiding Craft Manager for some users
February 2018

What's New

  • Craft Manager publishing: We released a new version of Craft Manager, moving the sync experience out of Sketch and into Craft Manager. This reduced complexity, improved performance, and generally made the syncing experience more stable. You can now also continue working in Sketch while we sync in the background.
  • Auto save: You can now elect to automatically save a file before syncing which will prevent you always from being prompted to save if there are unsaved changes.
  • Prototype list: The new Prototype tab in Craft Manager gives you quick access to your team’s prototypes, allowing you to stay in touch without leaving your desktop.
  • Create only one document at a time in Freehand: If you accidentally click Create” several times when starting a new Freehand, you can now be sure that only one document will be created.
  • Type something faster with text in Freehand: When you create a new text layer, the default type something” text will now be selected. Just start typing to overwrite it.

Bug Fixes

  • Sketch 49 compatibility: Craft Prototyping was not immediately compatible with the new
  • Sketch 49 release: Excessive memory/CPU usage - complex Sketch files were using excessive resources when syncing with Craft Manager
  • Updated publishing fixes: A number of issues were fixed thanks to the new publishing workflow.
    • Craft Sync detaching/deleting symbols: Fixed a rare but nasty bug that resulted in symbols being removed or left in a detached state after syncing.
    • Sketch crashing: There were a few edge cases that were causing Sketch to crash during the sync process. Syncing no longer happens in Sketch which prevents Sketch itself from crashing during that process.
    • Nested grouped symbols: We now support symbols that are self-referencing within a group.
    • Sketch freezing: Syncing complex Sketch files may result in slowdown in performance or indefinite hanging. This is no longer the case.
    • Hidden layer: We no longer send up broken assets of hidden layers.
    • Grouped symbol assets: If symbol layers are grouped, in Inspect the symbol layer name will show as the group layer name instead and if marked for export, that asset will also not appear under Inspect assets
    • Assets with forward slashes: We now support Inspect assets with a “xx/xx” naming convention.
    • Increase supported screen size: We now supporting syncing screen sizes over 16000px in height.

What's New

Bug Fixes

Craft Sync:

  • Craft Sync Sign-in Failuree: Users were experiencing intermittent sign-in failures. This update improves the stability of signing in.
  • Syncing newly saved file: Saving a file after Craft Sync prompts you to do so will annoyingly result in failed sync attempts. This is no longer the case!
  • Incorrect projects: This one’s a doozy. Craft Sync was embarrassingly showing fake data in the projects dropdown. Oops!
  • Sync density default: All syncs now are set to 2x density by default.
  • Prototype selector: The prototype selector had a mind of its own and was selecting a random prototype to be synced. We straightened it out. 
  • Broken UI - Signing out and back into Craft Sync would result in some funky UI issues. We tidied this up.
  • Artboard count: We fixed an error that would show an incorrect artboard count when syncing.
  • Inactive UI: Occasionally the sync panel would deactivate if no artboards were selected. 
  • Long account names: For those of you who have long account names you no longer have to put up with the dreaded horizontal scroll.
  • Open prototype button: We fixed an issue that would prevent the open button from showing after selecting a prototype.
  • Status footer reset: We’ve stopped the status footer from occasionally resetting when switching sync type.
  • Prototype open button: The prototype open button was previously sending people to the InVision prototype page, it now sounds you to the public share link to share with others.
  • Syncing all artboards: We found and resolved an issue that was causing sync to fail when syncing all artboards in a document.
