We are having issues when collaborating as updates take a long time to upload. Recently I had to manually do a starred version for other collaborators to see latest updates on the web app. Autosave seems to not work well atm for me.
Anyone else with this issue?
I’m sorry to hear that you’re experiencing issues with the auto-saving feature. I’d like to provide some clarity and assistance regarding the recent updates to this functionality.
With the release of version 99.5, we introduced a new approach to auto-saving for Workspace documents. This update means that your Workspace documents are saved automatically and regularly as you work, eliminating the need for manual saves (⌘S) unless you wish to create a specific version. For moments when you want to mark a milestone or highlight progress, creating a new version — complete with a description or a star — is as simple as using the shortcut ^⌘S.
I’m assuming that you are using Sketch version 99.5, based on your description. If this is not the case, or if you are still encountering issues with auto-saving despite using version 99.5, let us know.
Yes, I’m using 99.5. It worked well for a while but I’ve been having issues last two weeks at least. Autosave versions don’t show up on web app. They eventually show up after a few refreshes. Also, See latest version button takes forever to update the file. This results in developers not seeing latest updates on web app.
Thank you for confirming your use of version 99.5. It’s unfortunate to hear about the challenges with the auto-save feature and updates not appearing promptly on the web app.
Version 99.5 was launched on January 22nd, aligning with the timeline you’ve reported. To help address these concerns, I made a *video de of the auto-save functionality in Sketch version 99.5, showing updates being viewed on the web app without manual saves (⌘S).
Please take a moment to watch the video and to compare with your experience. If discrepancies persist feel free to share a screencast with your experience.
