Number 6 - Snap Text to a Path could really use some love and attention from Bohemian Coding. It's kind of a UX nightmare.
Totally agree. That UX is a bit of a nightmare. Talk about poor discoverability.
a couple of these made my mouth drop, kudos for that.
Haha, awesome! Which ones?
number 2, I've been manually downloading and inserting images for symbols since it didn't appear to function like #1.
And knowing #7 would have saved me a lot of effort.
Glad I could help, Steven :)
You can also copy and paste what ever is in your clipboard, by simply clicking on the tiny img preview box before pasting
yes! this is my favorite method.
Number 7 actually works in a bunch of applications, including Pages, Keynote and TextEdit.
Great post! Some really helpful hints :) Thanks for sharing!
Really great post there! Sketch has so many hidden treasures that can make it a decent illustration tool as well.
Great post, thanks for sharing! One thing I'd add to the image-as-fill trick: You can click the preview image in the fill dialogue and paste an image from the clipboard. Sketch should probably highlight that little thumbnail to show it's been selected.
Number 5. doesn't need Craft. Just add a fill to the text, like any other layer.
Ha, you're totally right. It's always a little stranger that you can set a text color AND a text fill. Good catch. Edited my post to reflect this, and gave you the credit :)
