    In addition this characteristic is what makes Sketch also feel more trustworthy.

    not the feeling i get. to me, it suggests they didn't put much thought or care into their interface. the toolbar, for example, is literally just a junk drawer filled with the entire app.

    that being said, this redesign is mostly aesthetic and i agree that the result is a bit too surface-level to feel like a necessary improvement.

      but isn't that exactly what the toolbar should be – a fully customizable drawer for your preferred tools?

        i don't think so, no. a fully customizable UI generally leads chaos and a longer learning curve.

        Sketch can get away with a this UI because it's competition is much, much worse... and most people just use keyboard shortcuts anyway.
