Did anyone try it? Any big crashes or bugs?
Fine for me, just first update Craft plugin if u using it
Bro, LIFE SAVER. O.O
Are you using the Prototype Beta of Craft? This seems to have messed up my Inspector :(
Someone here updated and is missing the entire 'Inspector' sidebar
There is a tiny border on the right side of the screen, click on it and then drug left.
Yup, my team and I made the update this morning and the whole inspector menu is not visible anymore... Useful.
Ditto. Updated craft and the inspector came back.
Have a deadline today and the inspector had disappeared , updated craft and all good Ditto you saved my life ! :)
yep, me too...
If you are using Craft plugin - inspector is not visible, you need to pull it out from the right corner of the screen. Also inspector not fit content and there is no option to make it bigger. Look at the right side of inspector: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8r3pinmk7voqun/Screen%20Shot%202017-05-16%20at%2013.09.07.png?dl=0
Guys, how can you release the product with such bugs?
It's Craft plugin with the bugs not Sketch., JFC how can people install loads of 3rd party crap into their software and expect it to work fine every update.
Yeah, you are absolutely right, that my fault. After updating Craft everything works good
Yes, updating Craft solved the issue of the hidden Inspector panel
to be fair I think Bohemian should have versioning on their plugins so it doesn't try and load things not tested on the latest version yet.
Seen as this catches people out every time.
I think not to be honest.
maybe prompt the user, but it is quite a mess if you have to update every single plugin with every (incremental) update. even adobe / ae understood this finally.
I believe it's culturally saturated knowledge that problems with updates are expected when third party plugins or software is directly involved.
This is user error, imo.
Yea, this seems very much a Craft issue, not Sketch
Yeah it's not showing my right panel.
I can't import any screens anymore from Sketch to Principle :|
Sketch to Principle import doesn't work for me in v44.1. Just revert back to Sketch an older v of Sketch for the time being. https://www.sketchapp.com/updates/
My team does not enjoy the fact that you cannot export a plot of your flow since they fixed the "bug" of overlapping artboards not exporting the overlapping content.
Uuugh I found this out today too. I used that 'feature' 10 times a day!
Bohemian response here: https://twitter.com/sketchapp/status/864732059792588800
Correct, but we didn't realise how many people were using this 'bug' that we fixed. Might have to revert the behaviour. Sorry
It's a feature not a bug'd!
Symbol performance has completely tanked. In a large file it can take upwards of ~10s every time I change any property on a widely used symbol.
I experience this as well. Only with certain symbols, though. Editing very simple color swatches or icon symbols, which are reused in many other symbols, is very slow. Editing less frequently used symbols seems alright.
Same here, just selecting a bunch of symbols can make Sketch unresponsive for a long time (or for ever.. 100% CPU), depending on its usage and its nesting. Quite desperate here.
I'm having the same problem and haven't found a solution yet. Any others closer to a root cause?
Reported the issue with a video and sketch file example. So far support suggested downgrading :/ Hope there will be some work on making this new version perform. The issue looks like a cycled reference leading to a memory leak in my case.
The 44.1 beta seems to be solving the issue. Not like everything is fast, but back to what used to be the norm in 43.
It breaks "Artboard In Artboard" export to Zeplin.
It happened because they have an «Artboard» completely new render algorithm.
I wish they said this in any of the media outlets from which they've replied. If there's a legitimate reason for removing the bug/hidden feature, then I'm happy to solve it with my own means. But with little reasoning, I'll continue to push for a rollback to include that bug/hidden feature – many have complained about this 'fix'
I found this plugin to fix that ;) https://github.com/DWilliames/export-artboards-sketch-plugin
Got a big document with many artboards that is very slow now. The thing is I can't go back to the previous sketch because it won't open in 43. This is a real bummer.
I learned this with the last Sketch update: never save documents in a new version until you test the app thoroughly.
Found that out the hard way now... Isn't there a way to convert the document?
contact sketch – they are able to do it on the back-end for you and email you the fixed file.
That's actually quite impressive that they're willing and able to do that.
I Have contacted them and they said that they'd fix it indeed. Meanwhile I have copied everything from Sketchfile 44 to 43.
For future reference, many of these types of things happening led me to always "save as", use version numbers, and that way I can always go back if I need to.
unfortunately, I have no help for your current situation :(, my condolences
Thanks for your tip! Will do that in the future. I have worked around it by copying all the artboards to the previous Sketch version. Messed up the content, but yeah...
If you use dropbox or box, just return to a previous version of your file where it's still in v43 :)
Same. Did not realize how bad it is until later when start to re-organize symbols and hit the wall on just trying to select a few at once. Downgrading as well.
Love it! Really great update, and I'm fairly impressed with how legacy pinning/resizing migrated into the new tool. I'd say they were about 80% accurate with the functionality I was expecting.
In related news, UX Power Tools has been updated to use 100% native Sketch resizing. If you're a customer, you should have received an update in your email. If not, let me know.
I didn't receive an email because I may have unsubscribed.
Get anything this afternoon? We sent them through Gumroad, so it shouldn't matter if you unsubbed. That would've just been from the MailChimp list, but not our customer list.
Seems like files saved on 44 can't be opened at 43. I wasn't expecting that since they just changed the file format on 43...
from Sketch Support "v44 has some new features yes that we had to put in the file format as well. For that reason v43 can't read them"
See Cory Malnarick's comment above.
Updating symbol is much slower in this version.
I cannot artboard within an artboard anymore :(
this is brutal, i rely on that feature every day :(
Major issue i've found so far is inputting data and photos using Craft, and then using the DUPLICATE function. The duplicated items won't render new content in them. They'll all just be the same as the original symbol.
No one's having issues with groups being totally messed up? This update has somehow removed tons of content from groups, but kept the groups in the layers list as empty folders. The removed pieces are now single objects. Even dotted lines made with shapes. I'm fixing all of my artboards now. Excellent.
sheesh. I haven't noticed this.
I still wish there was a way to resize artboards/containers and have objects float down (like CSS inline-block display). The current resizing functionality is great if every the layout only has to deal with scaling horizontally and not vertically.
No more option to resize-to-fit the artboard automatically after moving elements around?
EDIT: Appears the feature is still available but the button in the inspector has been removed.
You would've thought that after all the complaints on here after every single update that people might be a bit more patient. Golden rule: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Always worth waiting until things are ironed out.
how would we discover the problems if no one updated?
Absolutely, you have a point. But in an actual office environment we can't run the risk – possibly the case for a lot of people.
good point, but the office environment isn't the best place for that. granted, I'm going to do that now, especially after the removal of a feature we've depended on in our workflow.
Hehe Exactly :) That is why you only test in beta to find out whether it is OK for production or not.
It works great, few caveats:
Regarding your first point: I'm pretty sure scaling symbols was not possible before either.
This is true.
I'm having MAAAAASIVE issues with Sketch 44. My symbols page is going crazy with duplicate symbols. Simply copying a symbol from one artboard or page to another adds a duplicate to my symbols, with the exact same name. One for each instance.
I'm having problems selecting groups due to some erroneous group bounding box. I have to command select everything in the group, or select all of the layers individually to dismiss this strange invisible box inside of groups. Like when you have an empty group somewhere, but there isn't one.
I just resized a symbol's artboard, and it squished my icons. I'll share a dropbox link if anyone wants to see.
I'm unable to select text labels with less 2 or less characters.
I'm using the latest…
Resizing of the content by an artboard is a feature, not a bug. Dublicates seems to be a known issue, check how it works on last beta (44.1 beta, ou need to install Beta first, then ask it to update itself).
UPD: issues addressed in 44.1 beta
Terrible release for us. Management of a big collection of symbols we have become impossible: Sketch 44 just hanging up on simple selection eating all the memory. Checked without any plugins and using beta as well. I reported the issue, but support just suggested us to wait for another release :/ Downgrading to 43 losing the progress we manage to make since the update. Make sure to check how Sketch 44 performs for you (open your symbols, click and drag to select a bunch of them) before you save anything in this new version and continue. It seems to work ok on small files, but painfully degrade on big well-developed sketch files with a lot of symbols.
Invision Craft plugin breaking the sketch UI inspector. Disable it from plugins manager for a while till they guys fix this update.
I really like it. Would be nice if Sketch could provide an easy for people to update their plugins during new releases. Something like this perhaps? https://dribbble.com/shots/3503507-Sketch-Update-Plugins-Concept
You should check out Sketch Runner. It's a plugin that does exactly this.
I'm not sure how much more the new resizing tool actually contributes. Am I missing something?
The new resizing tool allows you to pin objects to any side/corner rather than just the nearest one. It essentially has all the features of the AutoLayout plugin integrated.
can't resize layers created in the previous version. http://recordit.co/jdpwAaKJlP
update: seems to be an issue with abstract files only.
They did update how pinning, etc works. So I expect that older setups may need to be reconfigured. I'm seeing a similar issue with some of our files.
No issues on first load for me.
