    Solid color presets are now visible when viewing the gradient picker

    Finally!

      They just sort of toss that in as a bonus, but it's like, one of the few things that has consistently made me go WTF every time I try to use global colors.

    The new snapping behaviors are awesome, but I already know I'm going to hate the lag when opening the new color-dropdown. It feels like a proper 100ms delay

    All I want in sketch is the ability to turn off inspect panel section hiding. Just display the right side in full without hiding the “styles” and such in an accordion.

    (Is there a way to do this?)

    A lot of the stuff they do they already do well. I wish they would focus on prototyping. That is probably the most underdeveloped feature on their app.

    Why can't I scrub any of the values anymore, used to be able to scrub every value in Sketch but then you changed the design to make it cleaner?? I guess but lost this insanely valuable functionality.

      You still can, but you have to click into the text field first.

        Not for me. No scrubbing for the past view versions including 53.

        People keep saying this, it literally doesn't work.

        Please Sketch devs, look how After Effects works where every value is scrubbable this is how professional software should work.

          Here's a gif showing that it works. - https://imgur.com/a/Tvu5QXr. This is Sketch 53.

            Now try and do it with text size or corner radius .

            This functionality used to be available with all controls and you didn't need to click them first you could just drag the label.

            But the functionality died because the UI designer decided to put the labels inside the controls and not all controls have space for their labels so don't get the functionality.

            I mean TBH if they were going to design it properly they'd ditch the silly little arrows completely and just have scrubbers like most good pro software does.

      I agree, that used to be so nice. And fast. The new way is cumbersome...

    Still thinking sketch is cooking something big because the improvements aren't that impressive over the last two years. Opinions?

    I'm working on a design system (set of Sketch Library files) now, and it feels like this was an act of madness before some of these updates (especially around managing overrides).

    I wonder if you can update colors in a library the way you can update a layer style or a text style (or a symbol).

    Up next, I hope: bringing some of the typography goodness that's hiding in the OSX font panel into the Sketch UI proper.

      The Find and Replace feature is still the only way to update colors in bulk without well-implemented layer styles. Totally agree though: transforming immutable document colors into color variables would be huge.

    Best way to avoid unexpected things in your workflow is to wait until 53.3. ;)

    I'm waiting mostly for the font rendering/antyaliasing option, something like it is now in Photoshop (smooth, sharp, geometric precision etc)

      What's the context that this would be important to you? Flat graphics/print?

      EDIT: Jeez people, why are you downvoting him?

        I agree not sure I see the value here for a UI tool.

        In the browser, we are using additional font smoothing option (in CSS) which makes fonts looking nicer, especially on the retina. It's true that fonts are rendered differently in different browsers but it's a bigger difference than that. In photoshop what was nicely simulating this CSS effect was just additional font smoothing (I don't remember how was it called because now I use Sketch).

        And now fonts were looking differently in different browsers from what I have in Sketch. It makes harder to design because it's optically heavier in Sketch when in the live version it's lighter.

      Thing is visual style isn't that important since the font will render differently on different browsers and plattforms. The information which you will set would be useless for the developer since he has other techniques to solve font rendering issues.

      If you create Visuals where text is flattend into the bitmap is another story.
