What’s fixed or improved in Craft?

In August, the Craft team addressed two bugs and improved contrast for better accessibility:

  • Contrast corrections: If you have the Increase contrast checkbox selected in your macOS Accessibility (macos-accessibility-settings-icon.png) settings, all Craft plugins will now respect the intended behavior. Previously, a couple of bugs were preventing these Craft plugins from increasing contrast as expected:
  • Inspecting exported symbols: You should now be able to inspect symbols that have been exported from Sketch to InVision.
  • Pasting hotspots from Symbols Page: Now you can copy hotspots applied on the Symbols Page in your Sketch file and paste them across other pages and files as expected.

Version changes

The version numbers for these Craft tools were updated with this release:

  • Craft Manager: version 1.0.100 (Sketch and Photoshop)
    Remember, Craft Manager is a separate tool that you use to manage the Craft plugin tool suite; therefore, the version number is different than what you see when clicking Manage plugins in the Sketch Plugins menu.
  • Craft Sync + Prototype: 2.3.167

What's new in the new DSM? (August 18th release)

The new DSM Sketch plugin has been updated to include accessibility enhancements.

  • New Design System Manager: version 0.6.17
  • Legacy Design System Manager: version 1.1.40

What's new in the new DSM? (August 17th release)

DSM now supports adding missing fonts so text style samples in Foundations are rendered correctly. With this enhancement, editors can ensure viewers see the correct text style samples, even if the needed custom fonts are not installed on the viewers' local machines.

What’s fixed in Legacy DSM? (August 12th release)

Hotfix here! Get your hotfix! 

  • What a drag: If you updated to Sketch version 68 (released August 11th) and then began having trouble dragging icons from the Legacy DSM grid, this hotfix release (Legacy DSM version 1.1.40) should solve the issue.

What’s new in the new DSM? (August 10th release)

Check out the latest way to work with symbols in the new DSM:

  • Iconic documentation: You can now add symbols from your Sketch library to the Icons category in the Foundations section of your DSM site. When you add icons, logos, or illustrations to the Icons category, viewers of your DSM site will be able to download these items as SVGs.
    To take advantage of this feature, you'll need to use version 0.6.15 (or later) of the DSM Sketch plugin. As always, we recommend updating to the newest version—0.6.16 at the time of publication.
