    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.

    This is very cool. My only critique is using this system has potential to create projects with a huge number of art boards. Maybe artboards need groups or a way to filter on canvas elements. Apologies if this functionality already exists, I’m not that familiar with Figma so don’t know.

    Haha, this is nothing against the design work or team, like I said the designs are very nice. More against the substance of the actual promotional video. It would have been a better video (IMO) if we got a little more detail on the choices rather than just the broad strokes. I would also argue that, Apple do this in their promo videos, they explain the process behind and reasons for design choices like materials used etc.

    Anyway, good design work, but the video could have done a better job of highlighting why these are better.

    Nice designs but wow that video is over the top and doesn’t really explain any of the design choices or reasons for them.

    It may as well have just stated: “we have new icons for our apps, now here is some cool visuals”.

    No plans for Windows. Yes this is a visual code editor, so real code being edited like a graphic tool, exports to HTML+CSS+JS and respects the box model, no absolute positioning etc.
