We improve Sketchboard all the time by releasing bug fixes, improvements, new features, and updated documentation. We wanted to have a place where Sketchboard users can see the progress of Sketchboard. Thank you for reporting bugs!
This page contains most notable changes and is Sketchboard's #changelog since Autumn 2018.
Sketchboard has added a new sign in type and now you can sign up on Sketchboard online whiteboard using Office 365 Single Sign On.
In case you want to change your password sign up on to Office 365, you need to switch login type to to Office 365.
Sketchboard usage has been updated. Trackpad scrolling now moves board around and zooming can be achieved by pincing on trackpad or pressing Cmd key while scrolling.
When you are using mouse you will need to press right mouse key when moving board around.
You can still change the default behaviour to legacy usage from the menu.
Menu > Settings > Mouse and Trackpad Usage
In case horizontal scrolling initiates browser’s back navigation guesture. Please restart the browser or close all Sketchboard related tabs.
Sketchboard added support for syntax highlighting. Check more details on our virtual whiteboard code block syntax highlighting post.
A new version of Sketchboard has been deployed. All text related functionality needed to be reimplement due to performance problems introduced in Chrome 97 on Windows 10 for SVG text transforms. Unfortunately the chromium team decided not to roll back their changes that introcuded this regression.
All though the work was massive it will bring new nice things for Sketchboard users. We are able to introduce more advanced content that users' can have on boards.
Good news for users having large boards, and have been strugling to find a specific shape position quickly. Now Sketchboard provides a possibility find text inside your virtual whiteboard.
Press Cmd + F or Ctrl + F to activate board internal search or use board menu to activate search. Search result are highlighted while you type below.
Navigate search result using up or down arrow keys, enter key centers the shape that contains the text.
In case want to cover search for your all boards, just open your dashboard and type the search term on the search field and go.
Happy to tell that Sketchboard is available on Webex as an embedded application integration. Sketchboard can be used in side Webex Meetings and Messaging Spaces. See more details how to use the integration from online whiteboard for Webex page.
Now Sketchboard can be used on small screen through a web browser. You can also install Sketchboard on your home screen when using iOS.
Now users can save reusable templates on based on their own virtual whiteboard content.

We have updated Sketchboard and implemented a workaround that causes performance problems on Chrome v92 with SVG.
Now you can open your large boards on Chrome as well.
Big boards are slow to open due to a performance bug on Chrome version 92. We are looking in to the problem.
As a workaround, use Safari or Firefox to open your big boards.
Now it is easier to get create new boards with a premade content.
Added support to rotate uploaded images.
Now when connecting shape on edge of a shape, it will use fixed connections.
Now it needs to be dragged to the center of the shape to use automatically routed connections.
Now it is possible to rotate shapes on board. Rotate can be applied to a shape by first clicking the shape to show the rotate handle. Shape starts to rotate when dragging the rotate handle. When rotating it shows the angle and snaps every 90 degrees.
Now Sketchboard shows library categories for shapes on the right hand side of a board.
Enterprise plan provides more flexibility. Some examples of customization. Set a fixed number of users that the plan supports. Pricing is tiered. Set up SAML SSO. Possibility to pay first time with an invoice.
Sketchboard added some electronic symbol shapes to the service.
Double click the empty board to open the context menu, then type e.g. elec on the search bar and Sketchboard shows all electronic shapes available on Sketchboard.
Sketchboard has added an option to setup sign in with SSO for the Organization subscribers. At first, Okta IDP is supported officially. Let us know if there are other providers that you would like to get officially supported.
SSO configuration guide will be available soon.
Now you can change how you sign in on Sketchboard.
In case, you have signed in using “Sign in with Google”, you can now change the sign in type to password login.
In case you are part of an Organization that uses “Sign in with SSO”, you need to explicitely switch to SSO sign in, before you can use SSO on Sketchboard.
Added on option to log out from the dashboard.
