What's new in this version:

Avocode 2.24.0 (64-bit)

New features:
Direct & cross-platform Sketch file import (Beta):
- We're excited to announce a major milestone. We're introducing the long-awaited-and heavily requested direct import on Sketch designs. Whether you're on Windows, on Linux or macOS without the Sketch app installed on your machine, you can now import Sketch files to Avocode just by drag and drop. It even works in the browser at If you drag & drop a Sketch file on top of a different file which contains artboards with the same name, they will be added to a new version. Once the file is imported, you can inspect all layers, Symbols, and export any layer as an image asset. You don't need any plugins or preset the layers as Exportable. Learn more.

Sketch Symbol Overrides support (only with direct file import):
- Sketch Symbols now look and behave like a normal layer - even with overrides. This way, you don't need to care about the Symbols master or click through nested Symbols, because you always have the correct overridden Symbol within the design. However, if you ever need to access Symbols master, just click on Open Symbol and the master version will open in a new tab

Sketch Resizable Symbols (only with direct file import):
- We have created a new model that recalculates smart element positioning in Sketch Resizable Symbols. The result is that even if the Symbol's master is not a part of the imported artboard, the resized Symbol should still be rendered and displayed correctly

Bug fixes:
- We fixed an issue that caused the screen to get stuck at 0% of file upload
- We fixed a bug that appeared while opening design guides with the CTRL + R shortcut

Avocode 2.23.0 (64-bit)

New features:
Direct and cross-platform Adobe XD file import:
- Thanks to the Monroe rendering we're now able to directly import and render layered Adobe XD files on Windows, Linux or macOS - even if you don 't have Adobe XD app installed on your machine. To import an XD file, just drag & drop it on any platform either to the Avocode desktop app or at Once you do, everyone in your team with access to this design will be able to preview it, inspect, hide, or export all layers and comment. Learn more.

Upload a missing font file:
- In case you imported a design which contains a font-file that is not in our database of open-source fonts, please make sure you own the license to this font and import it as a TTF file via our customer support in-app chat. Learn more.

- We added a new switcher to the Member permission settings so you could easily choose between All projects and Selected projects
