Actually this is pretty damn cool. Working in a PC + Mac environment this would help out so much. Less agro on either side when it comes to using Sketch or Sketch-like application. Kudos!
Appreciated! Will share it with the whole team. Thank you!
PS. I've seen your post comparing the right panel of Sketch and XD. I was thinking to make our right panel like this:
It didn't go to the production, not yet. I wanted to know your opinion though.
The image seems to be broken. It's now a common place that the alignment buttons are where they are. It was about that adobe seemed to mimicking a competing product.
I should have used the link from our Lunacy CDN export feature :)
Indeed, there a dilemma: something people get used to vs. something innovative
with the money and resources that Adobe has, you expect innovative not replication.
As for the image supplied; Major issue I have are the interactive areas, the inputs. I cannot tell where I should click versus type. Keep it simple and use normal input styling. A little border should not be overwritten as being useful. The icons on the CSS section are either copy or duplicate. Not sure. No labels on any of the properties ( though you might have a hover info appear). The imputable areas are less in focus then the icons, should be the other way. The inputted values are more important. Icons could be reduced in size to make that visual importance.
A-ha, I see your point. You like it as it is, and prefer to follow the usability guidelines. That makes a lot of sense.
Works so much better! Usability should be first, styling second when it comes to application UI.
Lunacy Editor is a fresh software. I Like it!
Upvotes on Producthunt and shared everywhere! :)
This looks really well done and I don't mean to diminish, but if you had to bet on a horse wouldn't you go with Figma here? Figma works anywhere, has collab features, prototyping, imports from sketch, etc.
I guess I'm curious why I should switch from sketch to Lunacy versus Figma.
Given that this is a Windows-only app, I think this is supposed to be for allowing Windows users to collaborate with teams already bought into Sketch.
UX is 90 something percent Sketch, and the rest is divided between Figma, Gravit, XD, Framer, etc.
We like many of these platforms. Still, we believe Sketch is a default platform for design. Also, it's a great tool with a vast community producing the tutorials, plugins, resources, and the third party software, including Lunacy.
Recap: not only Sketch is popular, but it's moving forward faster due to the community's effort.
This is pretty cool.
I've grabbed and installed already for those rare cases I need to do something with a sketch file. Might tinker when I've got more time.
Thank you! Appreciated
