    Some obvious wins here with Library Styles, but I'd like to point out this little one:

    You can now apply math operations to multiple selected items in the Inspector

    I can't tell you how many times I've attempted to do this and failed.

    We've just tested and Sketch 51 Beta works fine with Sketch2React Alpha 0.0.5

    Glad to see some new prototyping improvements. It's going to be a long road to catch up with other prototyping tools out there.

    Also, that's quite a lot of bugs fixed. It would be interesting to see which versions of Sketch shipped with these bugs to see if more bugs are being shipped versus squashed over time.

    Just seen it. It does a good job with style libraries. At the moment, there is only a problem with the override : jmp.sh/VX4I7fQ

      What's the problem you're trying to demonstrate?

        Actually,I am trying Figma for a bit of a while,and I felt in love with the way they handle "symbols" ans style which is more advanced as Sketh. The fact that you can create everything separatly fit more my needs

      Do you mind sharing more details about the problem? I haven't tried the beta yet but from your video it looks like I imagined it to work.

      I might be wrong, but I think locally overriding styles never was a feature in Sketch, was it? I thought I had seen that somewhere or read about it. But not sure where:

      • InVision Studio has no styles at all as of now
      • XD only has some kind of unlinked style palette
      • and Figma works apparently similar to Sketch but excludes color from the styles (and applies text styles on a character – not layer – level).

      Adobe Illustrator and InDesign are probably the closest to what you are presumably looking for. Their implementation is pretty sophisticated, allowing to define which attributes are part of a style and which ones are not. But it is also complicated and hard to see through, if you're not working with styles you've setup yourself.

      It's not unintended behaviour. It's how Sketch always handled these styles. If you simply change a value without detaching or updating the style, the next time you update the original style somewhere else these attributes will override the "unsaved" ones.

      It's a bit hit or miss depending on what you want. Sometimes it's very useful this way, other times it can be quite cumbersome to deal with it.

      Another big issue is certainly how text styles are handled within symbols, because right now it's down right impossible if you want to have multiple text styles within a symbol. How do you highlight specific parts of the text override with another style? Maybe some markup is going to help in the future. I don't have any good suggestions on this yet.

      Figma seems to be on a good track to at least solve the problem with multiple styles within text, but I don't know how they deal with symbols.

      It looks like it worked like it should...

    College and university graduates earn Ph.D. thanks to the powerful dissertations. With our service, you can come up with the hypothesis or methodology model, get the research or proofread done, or even put the entire dissertation together.

    I guess they didn't get the proofread done.
