    Am I the only one somewhat upset about Symbols? i.e. turning a non-symbol into a symbol from the Styles inspector, the way you insert a symbol, etc.?

      I like the added benefits of the new way. But I'm not a fan of being taken away from my active page to a separate "symbols" page. But I get that's the only way it could work with the new features. All in all, I think I just have to get used to it.

        Yeah. I'm also not a fan of being taken away from the active page to a separate Symbols page. I loved being able to edit within my layout an have everything update instantly. However, I understand that putting symbols into a separate page helps improve performance, specifically for larger documents with multiple screens. I can no longer right click on a layer to select it and have it's details populate in the inspector. It's handling Symbols similar to how Photoshop handles Smart Objects: which I'm not a fan of. This is one of the small details I loved about Sketch. But like you mentioned: it might be one of those things you'll eventually get used to.

    When will this issue be resolved? https://medium.com/@thomasdegry/how-sketch-took-over-200gb-of-our-macbooks-cb7dd10c8163#.27fk49zg3

    It seems like 3.7s features and workflows overlap a bit with Invision's Craft. Specifically Styles/ Symbols and Element Distribution:

    Conspiracy theory - Wonder if this was a hasty release to stem off a perceived hostile takeover?

    Does anyone know if they plan on letting change the scrolling direction for zooming? That's the biggest thing keeping me from using sketch.

    Is this Designer news?

      Designers use Sketch. This app has updated, so i think that constitutes news or important info for designers to know.

        Any updates are shown when you open sketch, If i started posting 'Affinity Designer updateindesign updateCC update`, then all of designer news is just updates

      More often than not do Sketch releases contain bugs, some of which can be damaging to usability, workflows or the design files. While it appears from these comments that this is a safe update to apply, I'm glad these thread exists.

        This is a more logic explanation to why it's news, when you rely on the rest of the community to test and report back any problems
