Modify Cosmos Design System
I'm working on a Pega project that I need to change the cosmos design system to match my client's style guide and use that to do Visual designs. Basically, I don't want the Cosmos Blue color theme and need to change the entire design system theme to something else. (Button colors, Font, left panel navigation, etc.
What I understood is that pega updates the latest sketch library hosted in the design.pega.com once a month and if I download the latest online sketch library update, I will lose the changes I did to the copy of the live sketch in the next month's updates right?
What is the best solution to keep a library locally and get the updates without losing the updates I did to my local cosmos library?

@Lakpriya Great question. At the moment, there is no way to change the Sketch system core design tokens and maintain an updated library.
For customizations at the moment, you should download a static version and adjust the base assets within that file.
However, we are looking into more dynamic ways to adjust these sorts of things in upcoming releases.
We should be pushing another large update just before Pega iNspire if you'd like to wait until then.
