    Looks nice! Just a small bit of feedback, since many of the values you're collecting are quite specific (i.e. I weigh 58kg and ate 212 calories) then probably a slider is not the right way to go.

    From the Nielsen group:

    Selecting a precise value using a slider is a difficult task requiring good motor skills, even if the slider is well designed. If picking an exact value is important to the goal of the interface, choose an alternate UI element.

    "So regardless of the content, you will upvote just because it's something from Figma?"

    Not what I was saying at all...I don't upvote anything Figma related solely because I'm a fan of Figma. Why does this community feel so hostile?

    For the past year I've been working on teams trying to figure out how to make a design system. I feel like we all have a lot to learn so any resources or input is good. I appreciate that Figma is thinking about this and hopefully optimising their software to support design systems. FWIW, I work on a team that exclusively uses Sketch (and a Sketch library as our design system) and while that experience isn't terrible, it also isn't great. I'm always hunting for better solutions. I don't have much loyalty to software, just whatever solves my problem the best at that moment.

    I upvoted this as I'm a big fan of Figma (I have no affiliation with Figma). I don't often comment as it takes more thought and effort than upvoting.

    I'm surprised Photoshop even made the list.

    it's really cool but it bothers me that all instructions are in ALL CAPS. It makes it hard to read.
