    Limited by the restraints of code? There are no limits with code, that’s the best thing about it. The limitations and restraints are more likely a lack of knowledge of code. Swift UI is a great example of the next generation in this visual code.

    This closed off file type that Figma has is what it will be criticised for in a few years, Its currently a lock in, which adobe were criticised for a few years back. All Web based apps should offer a way to store files offline too. It’s essential in my opinion.

    I agree, I just don’t like the X app kills Y app mentality. It’s bullshit. Experienced designers tend to use a range of apps for various tasks. I actually like and am starting to use Figma when I need to make static graphics. But the reality is, it’s getting easier and easier to just design and build with actual code in apps like Xcode etc so I give it 5 years and it’ll be some visual code tool in the spot light.

    Some designer will probably be saying that about Figma in 2 years.

    Are you sure you’re not running a system wide app that’s causing issues for you? I’ve never heard of such an unreliable (modern) iMac. It could be software related.

    Good luck with Windows (sorry I have no advice), but maybe a hackintosh may be an option for you.

    I came up with the idea for Blocs (web design Lego) about 4 years ago while on Holiday. I built v1 in 6 months and have never looked back. 4 years later and I recently shipped Blocs v3.

    I like it, my only criticism is, it doesn’t convey the company message as well as the original.
