Canvas Color

You can now choose to display either a light or dark Canvas via the Preferences

  • Users on macOS Mojave can now choose between dark and light mode independent of the system preference

Smart Guides

Lots of improvements here and measurements now have a new appearance to be more readable

The color can also be configured via the Preferences

Some smaller features include

  • You can now display the system Color Panel when Option-clicking the color well in the Inspector
  • When resizing the height of text layers, they snap to fit their text
  • Smart Guides will now appear when inserting new Symbol instances
  • You can now click-and-drag to scrub values for the Dash and Gap border properties in the Inspector
  • Added the ability to toggle the visibility for all overrides on a Symbol master

See the full list at https://sketchapp.com/beta/

Yeah! More specifically, I believe it snaps to the line height set for the text object.

Still very hopeful that type style overrides will get some refactoring in the next major build. It's such a pain in the rear to serve a large design system by defining 900 type styles due to unique color and justifications

- Added the ability to toggle the visibility for all overrides on a Symbol master It was a MUST have for me... I lost hours clicking the super tiny checkbox for each overriding-option. For complex Systems it is a must, thanks!!! ;)

the top feature: could that dark canvas at least be adjustable? with a slider? it's just too dark guys ... I can only speak for myself but I can't work with it at all .... when you have a white UI the contrast is to high, it hurts the eyes .... “You can now choose to display either a light or dark Canvas via the Preferences”

If you are looking to do that right now, I would recommend the Midnight plugin (https://midnightsketch.com). In addition to the canvas coloring, you can customize a bunch of stuff via the settings panel or by adding your own json object for full control over the theme. You can even add your own icon set!

I'm still on 51.3 because paddy is that good. I'm pretty hyped for native dynamic layout in symbols.
