Have you ever designed a 50+ Screen UI with Sketch 3.0?

Means: Are the issues with multiple art boards and decreasing performance fixed in v.3.0?

    I just opened my Sketch 2 document (9 pages, 50+ artboards) in Sketch 3 and it's working :). In Sketch 2, I could not even select text anymore with a file of that size. I will update once I have worked with it for a while. So far so good though!

      glad to know that, I'm also have the same issue where I have lot of art boards with multiple pages and it's heavy to do some editing. Even it's not as heavy as Ps.

    Be careful though if you are using the trial version. I couldn't open the file it Sketch 2 after saving it in Sketch 3.

    Follow Julius's suggestion and you'll be fine.

    My only performance issue was when I did an export all (cmd+shift+e) for a 50+ screen UI, it frequently crash Sketch 3.

    been on the beta for a month: the answer is yes, but if the question is if I recommend it, then the answer is no

    if you really still want to do it, i recommend doing the following:

    1. split things up into pages: this will make the most impact in terms of performance improvement. each page is isolated in terms of processor usage, so it'll feel like a new document
    2. there are new "reduce image size" and "flatten into bitmap" features which can help alleviate bitmap lag
