    Unless you're on Windows

      I work on Mac and even I find this a valid point. Not every designer does or can use Mac.

      That doesn't mean that Sketch isn't a valuable tool (bought v3 as soon as possible and haven't regretted since). But yeah, it's not a replacement for everyone just yet (I mean for one thing, the stability really needs to be honed down).

        It just depends on your team. Even if I use a Mac most of the jobs that I've had included designers on Windows and designers on Macs, so it's important to have a solution that works on both.

        I'd argue that it's even better to have it on Windows as these types of programs are a dime a dozen for the Apple ecosystem but would be a game-changer for Windows-based designers.

    yes yes yes. I made the move from Fireworks when Sketch 2 was released. Sketch is well worth the learning investment. It honestly feels like the evolution of Fireworks / photoshop, and happily made by non-adobe folks (bohemian coding).

    Made the switch from Firework to Sketch 3 as well.

    I still miss not being able to manually switch to pointer tool but I'm slowly getting used to that.

    So long Fireworks, it's been a great 12 year ride!

      Esc will always take you out of whatever tool / input field / mode / etc you happen to be in, back to pointer tool.

      Depending on what you're doing, you may have to press it twice, but it'll always take you there : )

      (Yes, I know, muscle memory. It's been three years since I switched to Sketch but I still press 'V' to go back to pointer tool, every now and then : )
