When I have a symbol, or nested symbol that I am trying to override, it is often buried quite deep in the symbol hierarchy. It is very inefficient to have to navigate through the entire menu again to find the symbol that might just be in the parent directory.
So, within the override menu, if the breadcrumbs at the top were actual links that can be clicked to GO to that directory, it would much easier to do. And if not that, perhaps there is a “back” button up there which allows us to go up the directory tree.
Picking an option from a drop-down menu when we don’t remember the name of a style or element can be a real pain. The mouse cursor covers unnecessary distances, and the loading time for the next panel takes too long.
I have attached a simple comparison between Sketch’s current performance and some suggestions of direction to make it faster and more efficient to work with.
I’m not sure if waiting for Apple’s moves should keep you on hold with UI changes in Sketch. I believe some of market players gains on your decision making model.
That piece of Sketch UI is slowing us and it should have been redesigned a few years ago. I can water this forum with examples like this. But after seeing yours arguments, I’m not sure if it’s not a waste.
Can you show us some screenshots of the implementation?
I think I saw a discussion about this in these forums as it relates to symbols, but it applies here as well… it would be nice if there was a way to more easily traverse to nearby groups in the dropdown, instead of being only in the current group, or having to start at the very top. It would have allowed for the user in the first video to more quickly navigate from black to bold group. The inclusion of an up arrow or something to jump up a level might suffice.
