    Did anyone try it? Any big crashes or bugs?

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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.

    It breaks "Artboard In Artboard" export to Zeplin.

    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.

        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"

    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.

    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.

    I cannot artboard within an artboard anymore :(

    It works great, few caveats:

    1. I cannot use Edit > Scale on a symbol, básicamente, it is disabled.
    2. The symbol dropdowns shows the non retina version of the symbol, looks ugly.
    3. I have to rework many symbols to profit the new constraints tool

    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.

    Updating symbol is much slower in this version.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I'm not sure how much more the new resizing tool actually contributes. Am I missing something?

    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.

    can't resize layers created in the previous version. http://recordit.co/jdpwAaKJlP

    update: seems to be an issue with abstract files only.

    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).
