New in Sketch 45 Presentation Mode: Presentation mode has been redesigned to simply hide the UI and not go full screen (it also now works with tabbed windows). Plugins: Plugins now update automatically within Sketch. Incompatible plugins will also be disabled so they don’t break Sketch. Vector Editing: Smart guides are now shown when inserting points, allowing you to snap new points to existing points’ axes. UI Improvements: The color popover is now scrollable, plus the color picker can now be collapsed, allowing more room for presets. Enhancements Plugins are now removed from the Plugins menu immediately after you disable them Mirror browser previews now revert to the document overview if the current Artboard is deleted You can now choose how far layers are nudged by the arrow keys or Shift-arrow keys in the Canvas preferences Optimized menus, making them more consistent, with improved usability Added a preference to choose between selecting a point, or closing a path, when clicking the first point in the vector editor Improved accuracy when selecting rotated shapes “Resize to Fit” now takes outer borders and offset shadows into account when resizing Artboards Layer resizing constraints now have shortcuts in the Layer › Constraints menu Bug Fixes
