Hello, My name is Dimitris! Today we are going to talk
about 4 must have sketch plugins. Have we already talked about that topic? Today we are going to talk
about Sketch secrets But if I told you the secrets, they won’t be secrets anymore… This video is for new users,
and more experienced. It will help you create
a more efficient workflow. Let’s see how we can select
a layer on sketch we can select a layer on sketch We see that some handles appear We can select multiple layers by holding the shift button and clicking the next layer In order to deselect a layer We have to do the exact opposite If we want to deselect all layers we have to click in an empty area Another way to select multiple layers is to click and drag our mouse over the layers By holding down the shift buttons we can add more layers to our selection If we click and drag over some layers, and hold down the Alt key, it will only select the layers that re entirely within the bounds of the Rectangle. In this example, the last oval won’t be selected If I click and drag over the ovals, the background will be selected. If we hold down the Alt button, only the ovals will be selected Let’s find out another secret e have 2 layers that are buried under another layer you can Control-click and choose
“Pick Layer” from the shortcut menu in order to select the last one If we have only two layers by holding down the Alt button sketch selects automatically the layer below Here we have a Group Inside that group, , there is an oval and another group with 2 ovals inside Groups are a very convenient way of organizing content, and can prevent layers from being accidentally edited; However, there are situations where you want to select a particular layer buried deep inside multiple groups. To save you lots of double-clicking while you go down deeper and deeper into the group hierarchy you can instead hold down Command and select that deeply buried layer straight away. We are going to see how to navigate through artboards You can zoom from the top panel – and + buttons You can also zoom pressing the “+” from your keyboard and “-” zooms out You can also use the mouse wheel holding the command key By pressing cmd + 0 you get 100% zoom if we want to see all the artboards we press cmd + 1 if we want to zoom to a specific layer we press cmd + 4 if we want to zoom to a specific artboard we press cmd + 4 If we want presentation mode we press cmd + . n order to move from artboard to artboard we press Fn + right arrow and now Fn + left arrow The last feature is called smart guides Smart guides help us measure distance and size We have two circles and an oval! if we click and drag the right handle smart guides indicate us that the other circles are 214 pixels The same happens with the height Smart guides also measure the distance between two layers by pressing Alt and hovering over the layers Something you may not know When you select a text layer and press the Alt key we see the distance from the background The distance is calculated with the line height Line height is the distance between the lines in a paragraph So if we want to measure the distance without the line height we press alt + ctrl keys I hope you found this video useful!
