Justin hasn't posted any stories yet.
It would be nice if they actually used their tools and fully realized the job stories behind the features they're building.
I'm on a 4-5 person distributed team and we are constantly having issues with the limited (read stagnant) feature-set of InVision. In som many regards, it's as if they added an option or button to solve one problem, but never fully realized the job story and motivations behind the problem.
For example, look at Live Embed. We use JIRA and Slack. When I'm writing docs or tickets and need to live embed screens, the experience starts on a sour note immediately. Firstly, the problematic size and onHover display method of the Live Embed
Icon-Button. If I had a dime for every time I missed the damn thing, repeatedly, and proceeded to watch others do the same.
Secondly, why does it ask me my target destination EVERY SINGLE TIME, then go on to reveal a second dialog with the appropriately formatted Live-Embed URL? Is there really no way to define a default (in this case, Jira)? The second modal is equally frustrating considering the dialog knows the component/element that spawned it. For the love of dog… can we just get a "Copy Live Embed URL/Code" onHover of the damn target-destination? But wait… there is more.
Third, screw all that doubleOnHover-wubba-lubba-dub-dub! Let me choose a default/preferred target-destination. On hover of the fracking screen-tile, reveal the live embed icon, in fact, reveal ALL three of the icons. There is no reason to hide them in an overflow menu if they only appear on hover…
Aaaand fourthly… Last thing I swear… Let me grab the live embed URL at the screen level AND the project level.
That's just inVision Live Embed. I got plenty more usability issues to rave about once we move on to things like Freehand, the mobile app, CRAFT, Missing "high demand" functionality like stateful buttons and overlays without the BS work around.
We haven't even gotten to Studio yet…
I'm having MAAAAASIVE issues with Sketch 44. My symbols page is going crazy with duplicate symbols. Simply copying a symbol from one artboard or page to another adds a duplicate to my symbols, with the exact same name. One for each instance.
I'm having problems selecting groups due to some erroneous group bounding box. I have to command select everything in the group, or select all of the layers individually to dismiss this strange invisible box inside of groups. Like when you have an empty group somewhere, but there isn't one.
I just resized a symbol's artboard, and it squished my icons. I'll share a dropbox link if anyone wants to see.
I'm unable to select text labels with less 2 or less characters.
I'm using the latest…
Sketch — 3.2.2
I deleted text from a symbol I had duplicated several times Using the Exclude text from symbol feature.
Whatever I did, ALL the symbols changed to say “Audio” - Which is what I was typing in the new symbol.
I accidentally moved the background layer of the symbol and and committed the change to all the other symbols by clicking outside of it.
I noticed it updated the position across all the symbols, and when I tried to undo, it applied the text last used to ALL the symbols. Loosing all the notes I add to each of the symbols
I may have done on of the following… -I used CMD+Z to undo a typo and hit return -I copy and pasted something and hit return -I pasted text that wasn't part of the symbol into the text marked “exclude from symbol”
Great work Jonathan! Still listening, but worth every second!
