Introducing Cheat Sheets
I just released a major addition to the Sketch Master courses—cheat sheets. These are written notes about all the key points, tips, tricks, and keyboard shortcuts from each video.
They’re a perfect way to reference what you’ve learned—especially after you’ve watched a video and think to yourself, “what was that keyboard shortcut to bring up the Eyedropper from the color picker?”
And if you’re not familiar with the symbol for that key, just hover over it to see it’s name.
Cheat sheets are available today for all students, at no additional cost.

- If you change the volume while watching a video, the website now remembers that volume and applies it when you watch another video.
- After watching the majority of a video, that section in the course will be automatically marked “Complete” ☑️.

- When viewing the courses, students now have a “Start Watching” button, allowing them to easily resume watching where they left off.

- Updated both the Getting Started and UX courses to cover new minor features in Sketch version 39, including Scale origins, Replace With (replace any layer with a Symbol), and the “Fit” image fill option. Group & Symbol Resizing will be featured in an upcoming course.

- Revisions to the Getting Started course, recreating the functionality of Prepo (live device icon previews on a homescreen) by using Symbols and the new Sketch Mirror app.
