One of the things that I always loved about Sketch was that the bounding box of the selected item(s) would always hide when you dragged the element or moved it with your arrow keys.

enter image description here

It seems like with the 3.7 update, this functionality has changed and I can't figure out how to switch it back to the original setting.

Anyone know how to change this back to hide the handles/edges when moving something?

There isn't a way to go back to the old behavior.

But, you could do the following (until it becomes more trouble than it's worth):

View » Canvas » Show Selection Handles

You can go into System Preferences » Keyboard » Shortcuts » App Shortcuts, use the plus button to add Sketch.app, and create your own keyboard shortcut for Show Selection Handles
