    I recently worked with converting a very large corporate team to use sketch. I also use it everyday in my own workflows.

    Any plans to make it easier to work on files as teams.?

      I’d love to hear your experiences with that. It’s something we get asked a lot.

        It would be really interesting (though may be technically impossible, as I think sketch files are binaries) to imagine a sketch file format that was a package, with internal files that could be managed by something like Git. Even if a package format was possible, not sure if you'd get anything like object-level management. A very knotty challenge.

          Funny you mention that: Sketch documents used to be package files within the last year-ish? Not sure of the reason they switched over to binaries.

            Sketch’s file format changed from a package in 3.1 because it caused a whole manner of issues when it came to sync services like Dropbox and Google Cloud. It was unfeasible to continue with this so we needed to make the change.

              I'm pretty sure the iWork apps have been following this same trend (from packages to binaries). Just the problems caused by email apps & web servers seeing a folder instead of a file have been sufficient to drive developers away from it.
