    Hey @joel-cook!

    Lingo keeps a version of each asset you have synced to your mac so you can drag and drop it on or offline. Teams can have lots of kits, and you can toggle the kits you want synced or the kits you want to leave in the cloud at any given time. We plan on improving all of this in the future as Lingo grows.

    I'd love to chat about how your company's workflow can be incorporated. Send me a quick email at geremy@thenounproject.com.

      Does it watch folders or is it copying files over to Lingo's own folder (as well as uploading them to the web)? I already have my assets organized in folders and don't want to just duplicate them and use up hard drive space.

        Hi Ismail!

        Lingo has a copy of the asset. We are working on ways where you won't necessarily have to store ALL asssets on your drive, but for now it will have to use up some space.

        Storing your visuals in Lingo is also more than just somewhere to keep them. If you have multiple file types ( SVG, PNG, JPG ) of a visual, all you need is one in Lingo. It can generate different file cuts on the fly, effectively saving you drive space.

        If you'd be interested in chatting more about how this process could work for you, send me an email at geremy@thenounproject.com.

          Can there be a setting to NOT do that and just watch folders for files and leave the files in place when they are used in Lingo? Pixa, Pixave, Bridge, etc, all have this option.

          I want to use this but I don't want to have huge amounts of duplicate files on my Mac.

            Interesting idea Chris,

            One thing that makes Lingo different from the apps your suggested is the Syncing, which needs specific resource management. We hope to improve this as Lingo evolves so you don't see “duplicate file” sizes.

            I recommend trying Lingo with some of your most repeated content for now ( Logos, Icons, UI Elements ).

              I'd love to pay like $99 for Lingo and use it essentially as a personal Bridge replacement with the Sync features.
