Sketch 3.7 and New Symbols

Hello guys,

I must say that I am really impressed with this update. But there is a big issue I am having. One thing I loved on Sketch that really set it apart from all its ‘competitors’ if you like was the ability to edit the symbol right there in the design. Open a new screen (window,tab) with only that symbol alone and edit it doesn’t help, it makes it harder even. Here’s my reasons why:

  1. Breaking the workflow — moving from the design screen is distracting and breaks the workflow. (this is now same as the Smart Object in Photoshop — one of the reasons I left Photoshop. I design and make changes and I want to see the changes as I make them. BETTER & FAST WORKFLOW.
  2. Overcomplicating — I sense there is a vibe in the design world at the moment, to overdo things and make them more complex than they need to be just to accommodate new features. This might be for various reasons but here I feel that there is no need. Why would I want to change to another screen to edit my symbol when I could do it straight there? The extra step is unnecessary IMHO.
  3. Thanks !
