Craft Freehand

The Craft Freehand tool lets you rapidly capture feedback throughout the product design process. Create a freehand project directly from your design file in Sketch, and then share that freehand with others to begin collaborating in real-time.

If using Photoshop, check out the article Craft Freehand for Photoshop.

Installing Craft Freehand

If you don’t yet have Craft, you’ll need to install Craft to get access to Freehand and our other Craft tools. Alternatively, you can create a freehand using InVision Cloud.

Creating a new freehand

To create a new freehand from a Sketch file:

  1. Open your design file in Sketch.
  2. In the right-hand toolbar, click the Craft Freehand icon (craft-freehand-icon-sketch.png).
  3. If you’ve never created a freehand, you’ll see the option Create New Freehand.
    If you have previously synced a project to a Freehand, you’ll see the name of the most recently synced Freehand. At the top-right of the Freehand modal, click New.
  4. Enter a name and select an account.
  5. Choose to sync All Artboards or a Selected Artboard.
  6. Click Create Freehand.

After creating the freehand, a new browser tab will open, and you can begin working on your new freehand.

Updating an existing freehand

To update an existing freehand:

  1. Open your design file in Sketch.
  2. In the right-hand toolbar, click the Craft Freehand icon (craft-freehand-icon-sketch.png).
  3. If you have previously synced a project to a Freehand, you’ll see the name of the most recently synced freehand. To choose a different existing freehand, click the drop-down arrow.
