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.
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?
Well you well at least need to have Mojave out since it only works with that...release date of mojave is September 24th. My guess will be half october.
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?

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!

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.
