    More important than baseline above to cap height below, does it do baseline above to baseline below?

    Update: we may just get this!

    Update 2: mocked up what it could look like:

    A new innocent sketch update followed by 15 Craft plugin updates...

      As soon as I read your comment, I got a Craft Update notice. Ugh.

      Yikes, it auto-updates though, right?

        Usually, I never set up to auto-updates... sometimes sketch (or some plugins) are so buggy ... so I'm updating them after a bunch of days or when the bug-fix version is released...

    When measuring the distance between text layers, holding the Control key now measures the distance from the baseline and cap height, rather than the bounding box of the layer

    Hallelujah! Invision and Zeplin people, if you're listening, will your products be updated to reflect these measurements, rather than bounding boxes for text?

    Warning - plugins are broken, again.

    Plugins

    Removing and reinstalling Sketch (sans plugins, settings) seems to resolve the issue.

    I was ragging on Figma, I may end up eating my words just yet.

    Especially as my role as unofficial Sketch beta tester has cost me two hours this morning, and my patience and understanding grow thinner.

    Particularly under the circumstances that this is a major (even) release. I'm surprised their support isn't on standby for these type of releases given the impact they have on users.

    This issue has been unaddressed for 12 hours now with no status update.

    Should have learned my lesson by now with their updates.

    I've had quite a bit of instability today after downloading Sketch 46. I typically build wide files (lots of artboards on a single page) instead of tall, and performance feels like it's slowed down today. Additionally, this is the first time I've experienced significant crashes with all my plugins turned off and autosave is a few minutes behind my 'current' state.

    Not sure what changed for this update, but 45 was working much better all the way around for me.

    Anyone else having an issue seeing distances between elements with one element selected + Alt?

    This used to work for me before now I can't see how far away elements are from each other. This is really screwing up my workflow.

      I have to restart Sketch all the time to make the Option key (measure) work :/

        Mine still doesn't work at times. Does Sketch team ever read these threads, this bug is making it impossible for me to work.

    While I'm pleased with the improvements, this version doesn't show any of the plugins I had previously installed. It also shows a weird “Debug” menu :? I'm running El Capitan (10.11.6).

    I had to rollback to version 45.2 for the plugins to reappear. I guess I'll have to wait for a new update before moving to 46.x

    The worst thing ever:

    Had shortcuts set really nicely for: Arrange / Align / Top, Bottom

    But with this new "bounding box" feature, those shortcuts are triggering: Text / Align / Top, Bottom

    Can we define which path this shortcut takes? Or just the end word matters "Bottom"? With this latter case I'm basically loosing the most used shorcuts in Sketch. Might as well cut my right hand off.

      According to https://support.apple.com/kb/PH21534?locale=en_US, you can set the name for the shortcut to 'Arrange->Align->Left' and it'll use the right item (use 'Text->Align->Left' for text)

        Oh bless you mate! I tried working around this for almost an hour before I realised my lunch break's over and I just reverted to the old Sketch version. Works a charm for that one, it should do the same for the new one!

          Hey Marius, did it work for you? I setup "Arrange->Align->Left" with ctr+cmd+arrow left but even if I see the shortcut in Sketch menu Arrange/Align, it doesn't align when I press it. Very annoying, same as you I was using this every 2 seconds

    Seriously folks, don't upgrade until at least a week or two after a release when bug fixes can be addressed. Sketch releases almost always have bugs, and BC unfortunately hasn't done much about it. Always, always wait.

    Sketch 46 consistently crashes when I try to change the symbol artboard size.

    This is what I get for upgrading on day 1.

    UPDATE: This only happens when I try to manually enter the dimensions in the side panel, if I drag the artboard with the cursor it doesn't crash.

    UPDATE 2: Symbol artboard panel is buggy, I can't increment pressing up/down button anymore. This release is very unstable, I'm going to downgrade.

    I'm always tempted to buy Sketch. Then these threads throw me off... :/

    My shortcuts for alignment of the layers crashes with the name of the text, which brings me trouble to use the shortcuts like before. So how to fix it? By the way, how to set a shortcut for one differ from the other one with the same name in the manu bar?

    Not a fan of the update to the overrides menu for symbols - I don't want to have to cycle through each parent of my nested symbol in order to change the override..?

    Yes, makes this hack for buttons with a leading icon work again: https://medium.com/sketch-app-sources/hacking-the-button-in-sketch-5cbce8526b3f

    Finally brought back the Resize to Fit option, but I am immediately seeing poor performance in a very simple file. Everything is slower.

      That never went away, it was just tucked behind the "Custom" size menu. Glad it's back as an easy-to-reach button though.
