    Hi Stephen!

    First off, let me say thank you for all the amazing tools you guys are working on. They're really taking Sketch to the next level.

    I've been experimenting with Library in the past couple weeks and will be releasing a pilot to the team soon. I'm pretty excited. A couple questions on this release:

    • I can't seem to figure out how to update a library item. In the previous version it was almost too easy to update an item. Now I can't even find it. Am I missing something?
    • Can you only make symbol items now? Before I had the option of making library items from symbols or groups. In a lot of ways I preferred groups.

      Hey Tim- thanks for the kind comments- much appreciated. Few answers for you: you are correct symbols is the way to do it now. This ensures that things like symbol overrides are preserved and affords a format that is more flexible/scalable vs groups. For updating, make changes to the symbol, return to your document and with the item selected hit 'push changes' in the library panel. If you're still having any issues hit us up at and we'll get you taken care of. Thanks!
