  1. Setting a pivot point for rotating besides the center of the object

    Example: Clone a square object then snap them side by side to form a rectangle. Rotate the right square by 15 degrees at its Southwest corner so you can combine it to a complex object.

  2. Prevent scaling when rotating object and vice versa

    I tend to clone objects and rotate the copy at specific angles. Because you have to drag the rotate handle further away from the object to get precise rotation, it ends up scaling and rotating and have to constantly undo.

    Also the opposite happens when scaling something and trying to use the snap feature but ends up rotating the object slightly while scaling.

  3. Full Stroke Editing

    Please add a full set of stroke editing options like some other suggestions (such as end cap/shadow.) and include alignment (where the stroke originates/inside, outside, center) angle (allow for calligraphic strokes)

  6. Support for keyboard shortcuts

    I have an iPad Pro with a keyboard and find myself automatically trying to move shapes via the arrow keys and using command + Z to undo. I would love if common keyboard keys/shortcuts were supported!

  7. Please add the old palette setup as an option to the circles on neutral gray

    Adjacent rectangular strip palettes help me see how one color can appear different when placed next to another. The little circles look pretty, but are too small and too far apart to judge color. I would also like the option to change the background on the palettes to white, black or neutral gray. I think this would greatly assist in color visualization on the fly. Right now I make my palette squares on a separate document and change the background there. It would be more efficient to do this on the palette.

  9. Stroke cap setting to edge of stroke weight

    Similar to the option of rounded corners & strokes ends vs sharp corners & stroke ends, I’d like to have the option to set the vertex location to the edge to the stroke. This would be similar to Adobe Illustrator’s stroke cap options; see attached photo.

  10. Aligning multiple shapes with a single click

    When we have many shapes (and text) and we need to align them all at once vertically, horizontally, centered, or other, we have to do it one by one and it’s very time consuming and not very accurate.
    Please add alignment buttons for that.

    Thank you.

  11. Multiple Artboards

    Be able to build a series of pictures/diagrams easily in one window without having to switch between separate projects in a folder. Sketch on the Mac does this feature very well.

  12. Hope the “save the video” feature will have more than 15 seconds!!

    Hi there!
    Hope the “save the video” feature will have more than 15 seconds!!

    Because if I make a BIG and LONG picture

    And it has a lot of things on the pictures

    15secs doesn’t work

    Needs more than 15secs!! Thanks!

    Or if we can choose which of the objects will be move in the video, it will be really cool and useful!

    I like this “SAVING VIDEO” feature, love it and hope it’ll be better!

    Best, Cherng

  13. Reorder palettes

    It would be nice if we could reorder palettes so that our customs palettes could be closer to the top, especially since it seems like we can’t delete the default palettes. It’s tedious to have to keep scrolling down past the default palettes to work with my own palette.

  16. Allow shape vertexes to snap to other shape vertexes

    Allow shape vertex points to snap to other vertex points not attatched or related to that shapes vertex. Like, you can attatch vertex points to others on the same shape, but not on others?

    Can we just make shapes interact with each other (period)? Such as snapping to vertex points, snapping to edges, and other interaction features.

  17. Import a photo, have it act like a shape.

    Import selected jpg. from devices photo library. Image will act as a four point shape, allowing user to adjust photos size, add a stroke, have image saved as a sticker, and move image around art board.

  18. Use buttons to Manually adjust strokes on objects

    I would like to be able to use up and down arrows to manually change the thickness of a stroke so I can set the stroke to exactly how thick I want it to be.

  19. Generate Code from the Figure

    If we can generate code from the Figure as it is based on shapes and colors, something like PaintCode and a couple of other softwares do, it can also be useful to create icons and other graphics.

  20. Please Restore Match Font Size Option

    The match font size option was a really useful feature for those of us who use Assembly for design ideas using text. This option is no longer available following the v2.2 upgrade which is a real shame.
