So… Here’s the situation: you need to open .sketch file. From a Sketch program. And that program works only on Mac.
But you don’t have a Mac. You only have Windows, and this damned .sketch file someone sent you. And that someone had a Mac. But you don’t have a Mac. Just Windows.
What are you going to do? Buy a Mac? Too expensive. Ask that someone to use Photoshop? No way, that someone is obsessed with Sketch. You’re in a hopeless jam. Or so you thought…
Luckily, we are here to save the day and offer a few alternatives to buying a new Mac:
1. Icons8 Lunacy
Hint: let’s open .sketch files on Windows.
Hint: someone will have to upload this file to the cloud. So, make enough Mac-user friends to have one in every time zone.
Don’t live in Nebraska: you need fast internet.
Hint: target hipsters.
They are feeble and weak.
Hint: lower your standards.
Target ugly rich people.
Hint: if you sit long enough at Starbucks, someone will definitely ask you to watch over his Mac.
Target old people, they pee longer.
6. A lot of Patience
Hint: ask Bohemian to support Windows.
7. Online dating
Hint: ignore faces in the photos. Look for Macs.
Hint: live in a country that ignores copyright law.
North Korea works fine.
Hint: before stealing from your employer, make sure you live in a welfare state.
Hint: if you are short of cash for the latest Mac Pro, sell some of your diamonds, bricks of gold or Picasso masterpieces.
Jokes aside, we’ve hacked the .sketch format and developed a viewer. It opens any .sketch files natively on Windows. It’s free.
We know two things for sure:
- It’s helpful as hell
- It’s full of bugs
Indeed, while displaying most of the files fine, sometimes you’ll see some irks and distortions. We need your help with files like that.
