AEUX change log

[0.6.8] - 2019-04-15

Fixed

  • Sketch 54 support
  • Catch for missing symbols in Sketch
  • Catch for bug on line 1193

[0.6.7] - 2019-02-25

Added

  • Ae backward compatibility to CC2014. Note: the Figma converter requires CC2018+ to download images through Ae.

[0.6.6] - 2019-02-15

Added

  • Ae panel image downloading for Figma. The online Figma converter generates images (if needed) and these image URLs are downloaded in the JSON file. Once imported into Ae, the panel downloads these images directly to a directory you specify. This process allows direct access to your images without granting the converter app or Google any access to your data.
  • While still lacking support for vertical text alignment and open paths (like horizontal rules, simple stroked lines and other open shapes without fills), the Figma converter is available for testing.

[0.6.5] - 2019-01-15

Added

  • Group dropshadows - only visible if you Precomp Groups
  • Sketch menu items which allow shortcuts to be added if that’s how you like to work
  • Support for relative image paths
  • Adding support for upcoming Figma integration
  • In-panel help menu
  • Support for Nested Boolean shapes in Sketch

Changed

  • Revised Sketch and AE panel UI (design by Danil Altynov)
  • New Symbol instance will named with its layer name instead of symbol name
  • Blurs are stored as an array. Sketch supports only one but Figma can handle multiple.
  • Images added to comp are renamed with the layer name instead of the ugly id string
  • Right-click > Help goes to temporary help doc

Removed

  • The AE Window>Extension menu for Figma

Fixed

  • Error when creating a comp less that 4px high or wide
  • Bug with overrides that stalled the process

[0.6.4] - 2018-11-19

Fixed

  • Rounding error on new comps not on a pixel

[0.6.4] - 2018-11-19

Fixed

  • Introduced bug where the Sketch panel didn’t open

[0.6.3] - 2018-11-15

Fixed

  • Error on text with multiple line breaks

[0.6.2] - 2018-10-08

Added

  • Support for Sketch 52

Changed

  • Removed support for Sketch < 52 - it’s way too hard to support older versions since Sketch changes their plugin API with every update

[0.6.1] - 2018-10-01

Added

  • Un-precompose button. Now groups in AE may be converted to precomps, and also converted back to regular layers in the main comp with a single click.
  • Support for images in Cloud libraries

Changed

  • Detach Symbols button originally recursively detached symbols which lead to unintended effects on nested symbols that were used in multiple symbols
  • Lots of code cleanup and commenting
  • Simplified shape layer creation functions that all start the same
  • Moved blending mode conversion into the Sketch side of the system to make AE’s layer building simpler. This will help with support for future design apps.
  • Simplified folder creation in Ae from 3 separate funcs down to one.

Fixed

  • Error when 3rd party tool docked on the canvas and trying to build to a selected comp
  • Error if unable to write gradient preset file to disk. Instead, it now opens the AE preferences that must be enabled.
  • Bug that failed to save the user’s state in the Ae panel

[0.6.0] - 2018-09-04

Added

  • In-panel messaging to explain errors and inaccurate layer representation (Sketch and AE)

  • Improved stability for AE CC2018 CEP changes
  • Fixed a json unicode encoding error that replaced all punctuation with ’
  • Better text leading
