  • Posted to My top 5 must-listen UX/UI podcasts, May 16, 2018

    A little off the beaten path but perhaps relevant...

    • I like Presentable (Jeff Veen), good guests and good questions.
    • A few podcasts like 10% Happier (or mindful meditation oriented) helps me deal with personal bias and subjective narratives, which helps with design.
    • Song Exploder can be incidentally informative because it's about iteration mostly.
    • I used to listen to the Big Web Show, but Zeldman doesn't let anyone talk anymore.

    Well I could certainly imagine a lower x-height being cool and interesting for a large headline, and then just cranking it up for body text.

    Hi Karri, did I see that the x-height is a variable as well? If so, I can imagine it would be incredibly useful and for some reason didn’t even conceive that it would be an option for variable typefaces.

  • Posted to A way to reverse Comand+Option+Scroll zoom in Sketch??, May 14, 2018

    I wanted it optional altogether. Had to stop using Magic Mouse due to too much unintended zooming.

    I think I definitely see a trend for nostalgia from my mentors as they're aging and whinging about the good old days on their respective podcasts, but I have to admit that at least for me, the fun is still there, maybe because the goal posts keep moving and the considerations are vast.

    That is some stellar literature right there.

    Yea the release notes are vague on this point, was looking for a concrete example.

    Can you elaborate? I haven't noticed anything in the code that appears to be different and the file size is the same as before when I compared.
