        I had high hopes for the Multiple Point selection across multiple objects. It's nowhere near as robust as Adobe Illustrator's and is a vital part of my workflow to crank out scalable designs for different screen sizes.

        The new group resizing features in Sketch are pretty solid, but still aren't as simple as selecting an entire side of a module (along with any text, icons, etc.) and simply dragging all of those anchors a few pixels right or left.

        Sketch's implementation is cumbersome and lacking.

        • It takes an extra step: you must press Enter with multiple objects selected before selecting any anchor points. Illustrator has a dedicated anchor selection tool (Direct Select).
        • Dragging to select anchor points excludes text objects, symbols, etc., requiring me to select those separately and reposition them every time I resize my vector paths. What if I want my icon / text to always be 10px from the right edge? Illustrator respects the relative positioning of all anchors dragged as a group.
