  • Forgot Password form: After entering their email address in Forgot Password form, a user will get “If there's an InVision account linked to this email address, we'll send over instructions to reset your password” message regardless if the entered email is correct or not. If the email is correct, we’ll send over password instructions to that user.

Bug fixes

  • PDF import: Added a fix for our PDF import process to make it more stable.
  • Notifications for new users: Notifications now default to Instant for all new InVision users.
  • iOS notifications: Fixed a bug where turning on push notifications in iOS app automatically turned off all email notifications. These two settings are now separate and don’t affect each other.
  • Scrolling positions in Console and share links: Anchor points now direct users to a correct position in both Console Preview mode and share links.
  • Background color in share links: The correct background color is now displayed in share links.

Craft + Sync

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.

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.
