Nice question @jaime :bowing_man: although I don’t mind repetitive work, sometimes it can become quite tedious to create assets to add to design tickets or documentation. I usually just have a template for it but sometimes if I’m in a rush I need to make it somewhat faster.

Updating icons or states on symbols is something that also feels repetitive and sometimes a little tedious but with a nice soundtrack :headphones: I just can swift through it – similar to updating or adding copy in a bunch of different places in the design.

Looking forward to read other people’s replies :eyeglasses:

Hey, here are s couple of things that I I sometimes find a bit repetitive or struggle with. It’d be amazing if Sketch can take care of it :rocket:

Tidying up my symbols page
When I start working, I make the most progress by creating fast, comparing and evolving an idea. When doing this, I don’t pay attention to my symbols page and by the time I’m done, it’s like a jungle :grimacing:

If Sketch could help me sort out where to put Symbol source artboards in a way that makes sense, like grouping by size or by path (for example base/containers) It would be amazing.

There are masters at this craft like @ramses who showed me the benefits of having an ordered symbols page :pray:

Making typos when creating symbol groups
Groups are case sensitive, and sometimes I miss a capital letter so I end up with a duplicate group. For example:

  • Icons/Basic/Edit
  • Icons/basic/Edit

Something smart done about this could be really useful! :heart_eyes:

For me it has always been that the online collaboration features are not made available separately from the desktop app. If I chose to join or quit an online feature that shouldn’t effect using the files on the desktop (obviously!) I would make that process much easier.

Creating and managing text styles has always been a nightmare. For years, we were forced to create a text style for every alignment, shade, color, and other text option? Please take a look at Figma on how it should work.
