Concerning Sketch Runner
Inserting Symbols is not yet supported. Fix coming soon. Sorry!
A fix is out now. Download v0.8.1 via sketchrunner.com
"Fixes a bug where text editing would not correctly distinguish between line and paragraph breaks" THANK YOU
Sketch Runner is updated
Go ahead and download the update from sketchrunner.com. Insert is fixed.
A github repo for sketch runner would be fantastic. It's such a hassle downloading it from the website every time there's an update...
How can multiple people have issues with old files? Does the Sketch team not check their release version on previous/older files themselves (especially the areas in which are related to changes), before they release an update? Sorry to be so negative, but it's constantly the same reaction I read about these updates...
Maybe the real lesson is don't update things on your work machine for no reason
Why wouldn't you make sure that your software is up-to-date? I can understand not relying on beta software for production, but it seems a bit ridiculous to not update your software to the latest stable release. Are you still using V1.0 of the software on your computer?
For what it's worth (and I don't work for Sketch), file conversion is a non trivial problem. I assume there are thousands and thousands of Sketch documents out there, so it would be impossible to test each one, combine that with their plugin eco system (which is amazing) and the problem is compounded.
In my experience, working in software the past ten years, QE usually does a lot of passes on existing files, but sometimes bugs fall through. I've seen this happen in companies both really big and small.
What works best is simply to email them that your file is broken with the new version. There are passionate engineers on these teams who want to get it right. They'll probably fix it, or even manually fix your file, then be able to use it as a test case for the next release.
It's not ideal, but that's the reality of software.
So we have spent a lot of time creating UI styleguides using nested symbols and now the update breaks the overrides? Great.
Clicks Skip this version in the update window.
I haven't seen any issues with nested symbols and overrides.
You haven't, but there are people who have. I am not sure what is the reason for my files - created in v.41 - to break override behaviour in nested symbols. I am also not sure why it affects only some people.. Inconsistent malfunctioning.
Ack, that's terrible.
Huge improvement to nested symbol speed. Happy with that.
Thanks for all the feedback guys. I have taken it back to the Sketch team.
I do invite you to submit any bugs you encounter to us so we can investigate and fix: https://sketchapp.com/support/contact/
We also welcome feature requests! Don't hesitate to get in touch :)
Thanks for everything you do. I love sketch simply for the fact that it has taught me team to be less dependant on a software stack. Sketch is also greaat, but mainly I love to have an alternative
If you're having problems moving layers/artboards around, please update Auto-Layout: https://animaapp.github.io/Auto-Layout/AutoLayoutPlugin.zip
hold on to your butts
5 crashes so far in half an hour with a fresh 2016 13" MacBook Pro w/touchbar
I'm seeing lots of crashes as well. (segfaults)
2016 15" Macbook Pro w/touchbar
Yep - Same here way too many crashes in space of a few minutes. Running Sketch 42 and on 2016 15" Macbook Pro w/touchbar
After the update I am seeing quite drastic decrease in performance and not everything works as expected - esp. overrides in nested symbols seem to have completely broken... Now I really wish I didn't update.
EDIT: Newly created nested symbols and overrides in them seem to behave normally, but not the ones I have in older files..
Craft Sync tool with Invision seems to not work anymore with this update. Am I the only one with this problem ?
EDIT : everything's back to normal after updating Craft :)
Thanks! I was having the same problem and the Craft update also fixed it.
"Math operators now work in the radius field for rectangles. The semicolon (;) is now the character used to apply differing radii (40;0;40;0)"
Good to know, I thought it was broken at first when I wanted to change a value in my "8/8/0/0" format and it reset to zero afterwards.
optional command + scroll zoom please!
Interesting updates. Would love to see these updates from projects like this.
Sketch Focus broken (reinstalling completely fixed the issue), Craft duplicate broken, right click with Wacom pen broken
Is anyone else experiencing issues, as in it doesn't work at all anymore, with dragging .svg into the latest Sketch update? It just doesn't seem like you can drag and drop in, for example, icons from IconJar anymore...
Or is it just me...
My Sketch crashes every time I try to move an artboard in this new version. Anyone else have this issue?
Update Auto Layout plugin and it should resolve the issue. If not, try to disable Craft plugin.
Also, new shape drawing cursors!
Is it just me, or did moving artboards around get messed up with this update?
It's most likely Auto Layout plugin. Update this and Craft plugin and it should work.
Update Auto-Layout as well :)
Sketch team would be advised to build a system that disables ALL old plugins on updates to stop people giving this useless feedback
