Your sketch file might not look the same.
We are constantly working on improving the Sketch import part of C4 Studio.
Since we’re tapping directly into Sketch files, there’s always going to be a short window of time between a new Sketch release and when we can test and fix our import tool.
After each release we will upload new versions of C4 Studio to our servers and you should be able to automatically update to the latest version.
We don’t yet have a date for this. But, we will announce one some time after we finish our Beta.
