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. NOTE: List not updated since 2023-02.
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.
Existing integations need to be reinstalled. How to reinstall: remove and install integration again.
Container shapes are always one layer below the other shapes. In case you have container shapes on top of each other you need to order the containers using move to background or top functions. Those can be found on shape context menu.
Example diagram with next generation AWS icons.
Add a possibility to attach text to uploaded image shapes.
Fix comment navigation doesn’t work when shape is switched. Now comment is attached to the newly switched shape.
Sketchboard supports a short and small offline edits and that behaviour was broken on our last Safari tab fix. E.g. short offline edit might happen when we do a build. Now small offline edits functionality is fixed.
