    Hi Tino, it should be fixed by now. You can print any paper format (US and international) up to A2 (16.5 × 23.4 inches) with no overflow to a following page.

  • Posted to What are the best non-design books that designers should read?, Nov 21, 2016

    Sometimes it's quite difficult to see a line between design and business or psychology/behavioral economics books. I believe all of these can be considered non-design:

    Thinking Fast and Slow

    Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion

    Understanding Comics

    Anything by Edward Tufte

    The Back of the Napkin

    The Innovator's Dilemma

    The Lean Startup

    The Godfather

  • Posted to Golden Ratio, bullshit or not bullshit, Nov 21, 2016

    I don't use it very often and I am very skeptical to it being some universal standard of beauty. There are people who are looking at nature and searching for any two completely random dimensions of anything that are to each other (approximately) in golden ratio. Of course they find it but the same is truth for any other number.

    On the other hand professional photographers are quite frequently using it so it good to take it in account when you do anything with photos.

    So the general conclusion for me is – yes it is most probably bullshit but the kind of bullshit which (as far as other creative professionals are using it) is good to know and take in account when necessary.

    Hi, I am author of this app. In current version you can switch between A4 and US letter by switching from milimetres to inches (click on the yellow ruler). I know this is not optimal (and is somewhat counterintuitive) so I am working on update that will fix this issue.

    Thank you for your feedback!
