Release Notes: April 2019

Your InVision experience is improving as we work to squash bugs and release new features. Here’s an account of the improvements you’ll find in the latest releases.

InVision Studio

There have been two Studio releases since our March 2019 release notes: Studio 1.13.0 and 1.14.0

InVision Studio 1.14.0

Fall in line! The latest Studio release is centered around ways to keep things looking nice and tidy—so all your designs spark joy.

What's New?

These new features were released in Studio 1.14.0:

  • Stay (Vertically) Aligned: Now choose from top, middle, and bottom alignment for text layers. Studio will also respect your alignment settings (auto/fixed and top/middle/bottom) when importing from Sketch.
  • Spring cleaning: Keep your canvas looking fresh—now you can use the Align and Distribute features on artboards.

What's improved?

These improvements were released in Studio 1.14.0:

  • Contain the excitement: When exporting SVGs, now Studio exports your content in containers more accurately.
  • Every second counts: After drawing an artboard using the Artboard tool, the artboard will now be selected by default so you don't have to lose those precious seconds selecting it.
  • Variety—the spice of life: Fonts that use named variations instead of weights are now fully supported.

What's fixed?

These issues were fixed in Studio 1.14.0:

  • Font fall back: Missing fonts on Windows will now properly fall back to a default font rather than causing an error.
  • Strike that: Some fonts were rendering incorrectly when using the Strikethrough feature.
  • Fixed fixed: When working with the Text tool, dragging the tool to create a new text layer should now set the text layer to a fixed width, as expected. That default behavior had jumped off track previously.

InVision Studio 1.13.0

Studio's latest additions let you spend less time dragging and more time watching dragons.

What's New?

These new features were released in Studio 1.13.0:

  • Drag-arys: Drag images into Studio directly from a web browser.
  • Every day I'm shufflin': Drag to reorder your list of pages in the editor.

What's improved?

These improvements were released in Studio 1.13.0:

  • Un-edited: Expanding and collapsing layers in the Layers panel no longer makes it look like your file has unsaved changes.
  • Sneak peek: When working with a shared design library, component thumbnail previews are now more accurate.
  • Fall in line: You may notice the handful of alignment tweaks we made to polish up the UI.

What's fixed?

These issues were fixed in Studio 1.13.0:

  • Sibling rivalry: If you create a new layer within a group while you have a component selected, Studio will now place the layer as a sibling of the component. Previously, this scenario was causing the Inspector panel to crash.
  • Defining nothing: While editing path points on the canvas, dragging a selection net that doesn't contain any points will no longer display Undefined values in the X and Y fields of the Inspector panel.
  • You have our support: Now you can import freely from Sketch versions 52+ without seeing the annoying "Version Unsupported" error message in Studio. Those versions were actually fully supported, and Studio was displaying the error... in error.

InVision Cloud

What's Fixed or Improved?

These issues were fixed or improved in InVision Cloud during April:

  • Pause plans: If the need arises, now you can put your account on a Pause plan without  any Enterprise projects getting archived.
  • Empty sections: With a prototype open to the main screens view in InVision Cloud, now you can edit any empty sections that follow other empty sections.
  • Batched comment emails: If you subscribe to batched comment emails, you should no longer see the annoying broken screen images in them.
  • Resolved conversations: Now if one of your conversations is resolved, the latest participant in the conversation will receive a notification saying so. Previously, a bug was preventing that notification from being sent consistently.
  • Browser favicon: If you have your browser set to dark mode, you'll notice the favicon is now correctly cropped.
  • Billing address: If you're on our free plan and upgrade to a paid plan, now you can enter your street address for billing purposes.
  • Invoices: Now you can access your past invoices in InVision Cloud, as seen here:
  • Subdomains: When sending a share link, you'll notice that it now consistently shows the correct subdomain.
  • Comment edits: When editing a comment, you will now see the correct number of people who will get a notification about your edit.


What's New?

Rich prototype previews within Jira: Now you can preview prototypes, add comments, and use Inspect to get design specs—all without ever leaving Jira.

Craft + Sync

Craft Manager is a separate tool that you use to manage the Craft plugin suite; therefore, the version number is different than what you see when clicking Manage plugins in the Sketch Plugins menu.

What's New?

These issues were fixed in Craft Manager in our April 4, 2019 release:

  • Create prototype links across pages in Sketch: When working with the Craft Prototype tool, now you can link to artboards on different pages than the source layer. When creating or editing a prototype link, you’ll see a new Artboard dropdown that includes your link destination options—artboards and screens from all pages in your Sketch file. Learn more about creating cross-page prototype links.
  • Create prototype links from symbols in Sketch: You can also now use the Craft Prototype tool to create links on layers or layer groups within a symbol master, and those links will carry over to every instance of the symbol in your Sketch file. Learn more about creating hotspots on symbol masters.

What's Improved?

Platform stability and security: To improve the stability and security of InVision Cloud, we made a number of general fixes.
