    Which are known for their bug free stable environments? Come on . . . :-)

      Okay, I'll bite.

      My biggest project is in Sketch – has been since 2013. Here are things that are still unsolved in Sketch. I paid for Sketch 2, got these deal-breaking bugs. Paid for the upgrade to Sketch 3, still got the bugs.

      • Text layers that go invisible when you edit them.
      • Layers locked to per-pixel movement, but stuck on decimal positions.
      • Layer styles that consistently reverse their gradients.
      • Groups that don't update their bounding box size.
      • Compound vector shapes don't display like they will export.
      • Line layers that use an inside or outside stroke and won't allow you to change it.
      • Random gray masking on zoom in and out.
      • Layers that are reversed, or scaled, or use a relative coordinate system out of nowhere.

      I know Adobe have a heavy track record with bugs and discrepancies, but that doesn't mean upcoming tool developers can feel better about selling broken features too.

        Apart from zooming (which is solved in the last beta for me) I don't seem to be affected by most of the things you listed. Maybe it has something to do with a file being corrupt?

        I agree with you that Sketch bugs need to be solved, but calling Adobe software more stable is a stretch. I think it has more to do with built up tolerance over the years than anything else.
