Pretty sure the Mightnight folk said that they were not going to support the largest release. Check our their post here: https://medium.com/sketch-app-sources/lessons-54ddaa613f1b and here: https://mobile.twitter.com/_midnightsketch/status/1039142855657177088

Not friendly to large product design companies where OS versions are controlled / slowly deployed. Sketch 51 -> 52 jumps a whole OS.

This is huge! Any idea if the layer styles work from a shared library?

They do! If your library contains some layer styles, they will show just under your document's layer styles (just like for symbols)

Excuse me while I go rebuild my Sketch design system. :)

So the color are taken now from the Style Library?

Yes, any layer in a symbol with a layer style applied will get the override.

Will get any override defined in the Style Library? So if you need to change a color will get just the one defined with the logic of the Name/slash/ or just any Style Library color?

Good question, seems to be any layer style but the override menu is organized, and the default style is at the top.

I guess will be pretty much like the Text Style...you'll have a quick reference to the name/patter but you'll be able to choose from the whole lot defined as a Style in the Library. Thanks for checkin Anthony!

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.

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.
