No info on the format for the text data set. I have a folder of images I use for fake people. I just added that folder and it was available in the menu.

See link above - it talks about file formats (TXT, possibly CSV)

Future request will be to avoid to have a rectangle just to be a background in a group of layers. Like figma and Framer have introduce the concept of a general container or "frame" which you can apply a colour and put things in it. In Sketch will be like to give a background color to a group. I believe I will cut down 25/30% of my layers.

That would really make groups more powerful. Sounds like a step in the right direction.

Awesome update! I have a question about replace with for symbols. I don't seem to have the ability to replace a shape layer with a symbol, but I can with a group, which is an easy enough workaround. It's just an extra, perhaps unnecessary step?

So happy to see layer style overrides. Will keep my devs using Invision Inspect happy. How long does it usually take for a new Sketch version to move from beta to release?

I have a question about nested symbols within a "component". I've gone ahead and removed all color symbols for my icons, which is great. They now have a color fill applied to them from the appearances menu. After that, I've created a new component wherein I overridden the color fill style with another, for example, white on dark background, which is saved in my library. I create a new file then add the component and none of the overrides are applied. Is this the expected behavior?

Mojave only for dark mode. But at least High Sierra for V52.

Hi there! I'm struggling to attach layer style to a symbol (an icon) made with paths. I have no problem attaching layer styles to symbols that are shapes. I have sketch 52 beta and mojave. Anyone else with this issue?

Don't change them tho, it would break the code signing of the app and Sketch won't launch

I played around with the beta but can't get layer styles to work for overriding text styles. Any ideas?

I cannot find "Replace With..." in the context dialog in V52. Its entry has been replaced with 'Data Feeds', which is neat but different.

It seems that "Replace With..." only appears in the context dialog when right-clicking a symbol now, rather than any normal layer.

Hopefully it's just a bug - it's one of if not my most used menu item!

I totally agree. A hack is to group the single layer. Once you do replace with is available.

I'm having an issue with Sketch 52 in Mojave and the Intuos Pro M when hovering a layer to show/hide/lock/unlock. With table pen if I hide the layer, it's then not showing the unhide but keep on showin the locker...anyone else?

Please bring back the controls over the properties panel on the right with hover - click - drag to change rotation, text size and other values. It's a bummer. You guys took away even the dropdown from the text size. Why? You begin to look a lot like Apple. Remove something that was working perfectly.

having trouble resizing symbols after updating to sketch 52. The symbols that had fixed size is not acting as it should, even though it looks correct in the preview.
