Sketch feature support in the Octopus format
What Sketch design data can you get?
Vector paths consisting of cubic Bézier curves and line segments
Individual shapes combined together using boolean operations: Union, Intersect, Difference, Exclude
Effects applied to the shapes geometry, namely fills and strokes
Solid colors applied to the shapes
Linear Gradient Fills
Linear transition among a set of colors applied to the shapes
Non-linear Gradient Fills
Color transition other than linear (like elliptical, radial, angular...) applied to the shapes
Shapes filled with an image, depending on the configuration the pattern might be respective and/or transformed
Shapes border of a particular width, filled with a solid color or gradient
Shapes border formed by an alternating dash and gap pattern
Configuration determining which regions of a shape are inside and which are outside. The so-called 'winding rules' are even-odd or non-zero
Adjacent line segments connected by an arc of given radius.
Shape Type Meta-information
Information of geometric origin of a shape, e.g. rectangle, oval, line, triangle star
Blocks of texts with basic formatting (font, color, style, paragraph typesetting) and positioning
Text Frame Behaviour
Text frame policy governing how frame resizes based on its content. The policies are: auto-width, auto-height and fixed.
Set of typographic features available in some modern OpenType fonts.
Emoji characters contained in the text.
Indented bullet or numbered lists
Bitmaps loaded from variety of common raster image formats: PNG, JPEG, GIF, WEBP
Bitmaps and pattern fills loaded from PDF
Image color modifications achieved by changing a set defined color properties
Linear transformations applied to layers
Technique of hiding a portion of a layer using on content of a different layer
Visual effects applied to individual layers, typical examples are fills, strokes, blurs, shadows.
Symbols & Libraries
Sketch way of organizing reusable parts of designs.
Set of layout rules applied to symbol/component when instantiated and resized.
Automatic Layout Systems
Layout engine rearranging reusable parts of design based on content
Interactive preview of a design
Visual references aiding the structure of the design content.
Persistent export settings of the layers
