    This is a good example. It's tempting to pick one of the 'modern startup' logos in the bunch as they are 'well designed'. But look at their shelf life!

    Better off with something simple like this: Alt text

    Stunning website! Is there a repo? I'd love to see how that loader works!

    My favorites:

    • Layers sidebar scrolls up every time you cmd + click an item in a long layerlist
    • copy paste just pastes stuff in another artboard//// just fixed an hour ago in 3.0.4
    • changing a symbol's size doesn't shrink it centered, but move it 20pt up and 20pt right, on all screens
    • copying and pasting multiple artboards follows the order of the layers in the sidebar, not the original positions of the artboards in the window

    Yes that's the issue I'm experiencing... I wish my workflow could accomodate Sketch, but I believe it should be the other way around?

    I'm not dealing with devs directly but with a client building a wiki of every state and flow, and can't imagine how the app works based on a few screens. Which is the point of my post: this is a demanding environment, and Sketch isn't holding up :/

    I fully appreciate team size and effort in this, I know things take a long time to build in, but I think in these two cases I mentioned that it has been an oversight on their part:

    Managing file contents somehow should have been a feature in v3, as internally in .sketch files the files are no longer separated (to probably deal with Dropbox sync cases) but merged into 3 files, and I have no way of seeing what files internally are large, nor am I offered something like compression, this is something that they should have thought about when introducing symbols into files because they're going to get larger.

    As I mentioned in the post, I did contact Sketch and they offered me some help through Terminal commands to get rid of the Versions problem that was eating my disk, but only after tweeting 3 times as they (rightfully) claimed they have no control over this system function, in another comment here someone else has the same issue, so it's not an isolated issue..

    I really believe this has been an oversight on their end in v3, hence I'm saying it should be a beta, a 0.3 or whatever number, I'm just bummed I paid twice for this product's full release numbers and this sort of stuff shouldn't happen in a full release, not trying to be snarky here Duncan, and I'll give Sparkle a try by the way.

    Oh yeah they're awesome, should really be a separate file to get them from I guess to work with multiple files, and symbols within symbols (symbol 'icons' in symbol 'menubars')
