    Who here can offer themselves as a tribute to test this version and tell us if it's "safe to update"?

      If you're a Sketch Runner user...I would wait. It's not supported yet. I'd suspect it won't be long though.

      I've just updated, and now it crashes whenever I try and do anything with a Symbol. It's too late for me - I have designs to finalise by Friday. Don't risk it!

        This happened to me too. Whenever I open the library, boom. it crashes. You can download and install version 47 again from their page: https://www.sketchapp.com/updates/

          Thanks Pablo! I will probably have to downgrade to 47 to fix this.

          I got the following response from Bohemian Coding. It wasn't a problem in 47, and may not be a common problem, but if like me, you don't want thick lines on your Grid you are out of luck! Annoyingly, I cannot get into the Grid Settings to change it without it also crashing! I don't know how this bug made it into 48.

          P.S. I love your YouTube Channel btw! :-)


          Thanks for your report.

          We’ve identified an issue in v48 where the app crashes when there is a grid set with 0 in the "thick lines every X blocks" text field.

          Our team is working on it and a new version of Sketch fixing this will be released soon.

          Our apologies for the inconvenience this issue may have caused.

          Let me know if you need further assistance.

      I clicked 'update' on autopilot before I realized what I'd done.

      Dodged a bullet so far, though

      Works fine for me, though I'm not a heavy plug-in user.

      One annoying thing started happening. Sketch crashes if you have multiple files open and you close one of the tabs.

      Yeah. Having the same problem. Sketch is turning into the update minefield that Photoshop is.

    Color find & replace is not an adequate solution to the problem of needing hacks to manage a color palette within a design system.

      THIS. omfg, why was this their solution?

      • Sean LesterSean Lester, 11 months ago

        Maybe it isn't a solution for people who are trying to get the most out of sketch and who need a design system for a large organization — but instead more for freelancers and other types of users who just need to manage colors within a single document or something.

      I'd assume Find & Replace was really easy to implement, so they knocked that out quickly. I'm hoping a larger overhaul is in the pipeline.

      Totally. I think every designer had feedbacked this topic. They would have 2 years of time to find a good solution. Search and replace? This hack was a plugin back in the days...

    Now that Figma is here and many people are switching, Sketch is improving faster! Good for us :D

    The big ones:

    • Color Management · Sketch adds support for working in, and exporting documents in sRGB and P3 color spaces.
    • A shadow’s spread can be set to a negative value to decrease the size of the object casting the shadow
    • Imported Symbols now remain linked to their Library when copied and pasted between documents
    • Find and Replace · You can now find a color you’re using, so it can be replaced throughout your document.
    • Symbol Scaling · Symbol instances can now be scaled using the Scale command, independently from the Symbol master.

      Improved selection of shapes with thin borders and no fill

      This one is particularly exciting to me. Adding a fill just to be able to move it around seemed pretty hacky.

      This is a huge one too: "Imported Symbols now remain linked to their Library when copied and pasted between documents"

      Not sure about you but not able to copy and paste between files has been a hard thing to train myself.

        See third bullet point ;)

        It was painful for me too, especially on the projects I'm working on right now. A lot of copy and pasting in between projects. Took me a while to figure out they didn't stay linked to the library as well.

    Is this actually working for anyone. I still get a duplicate symbol. Quite frustrating.

    Better colour management is great.

    But I'm still waiting for a web design tool to support all the things CSS can do. Like floats and text wrapping. Or varying border withs and colours.

    Do they really have to keep pushing broken updates every month? Couldn't they release them once every 6 months or every year and have a less broken version?

    It was running horrible on 47. I updated it and still runs the same. So go update lol

    Can someone explain Library previews can now be added by creating an Artboard titled “Library Preview” in the Library document ?

    I Updated to 48 and have since reverted back to 47 with the help of abstract. I was having text clipping issues that were affecting my current design system. I'm going to wait on 48.1 to see if this gets resolved.

    At this moment, Sketch Runner & Abstract doesn't work with v48. Seems most of my other plugins work, though!

    Broken for me - when saving files as a Sketch 48 file, then opening them, I lose the "View" menu - meaning I can't see layouts, rulers, any of that.

    Autolayout is not working like it did in the previous release. It might be wise to wait a while before you upgrade.

    Anyone having the Copy-Paste bug?

    Whenever I copy any artboard or any element, it pastes it in another page. It's very annoying!

    Anyone experiencing the same?
