    PSA: This isn't an official offer by Bohemian Coding and this is not the right place for bug reports.

    I'm still very frustrated with zooming in Sketch. When you hold CMD and scroll, it still seems very broken IMO. Moving the mouse during that process seems to screw everything up and feels very janky.

    Any insight into navigation in Sketch and how to handle it? I have trouble recommending Sketch to a team of people who come from Photoshop/Illustrator where zooming with the scroll-wheel is very fleshed out.

    Sketch changed my life, specifically when I started using the companion app that allowed me to watch my designs update live on an iPhone. I literally did not believe in magic until I experienced that. That shit is totally voodoo.

    My biggest issue at the moment is that I'm used to all the Adobe design programs, and their controls tended to be a lot more precise... It would help if you guys could mimic their controls as much as possible.

    Also, masking images was tough to figure out. That whole process isn't intuitive at all.

    Finally, when using the companion app, I found that a lot of glitchiness occurred and I frequently had to restart the desktop app and lost a lot of work in the process.

    I think you guys should cover the baseline height problem in Sketch. Using the layout for rows is not very accurate for some reason.

    I know several people have their own solutions. I just do a variable of 6 using the baseline ruler in this plugin. https://github.com/alssndro/sandros-sketch-plugins

    This is a good article to accompany the solution http://www.teehanlax.com/blog/designing-faster-with-a-baseline-grid/
