  • Posted to Ask DN: Coworking space vs. cafe , Sep 22, 2016

    I'm a fan of co-working (read: my own) space. I quite like the separation between work and home — leaving the house for work and leaving the office to “end” a day. Having a desk that I can mess up, clean up and organise to my liking.

    It's worth checking out different spaces and getting one that works for you. Much like house hunting — the more spaces you look at, the better informed you'll be.

    It's also worth considering smaller things that might effect you – natural light, temperature, ambient noise, and even things to do around the space itself. When it comes to work, can you spread out, stick notes up etc. A few things you might not realise you do until you can no longer do them… say, in a café ;).

    If only there were a place that provided both…

    Valid point Victor. Although if you've ever coded an email from scratch before you might be pleasantly surprised.

    I'm finding myself using this property more and more, but on a case-by-case basis. I don't like to generalise and blanket whatever I'm working on with it straight out of the gates.

    • 1 for Fontcase, although admittedly, it has had it's share of bugs that seemed to have been fixed.

    Cheers Lee. I'm on my way to moving to HTML/CSS quicker and keeping Photoshop as a experimental canvas, but like I said, old habits die hard ;)

    Until then, there are some viable solutions in this thread.

    Fuzzy1 is basically what I was looking for! I had no idea, nor did the few people I'd spoken to about this problem, that you could do that with Photoshop. Might make the world of difference when bouncing between retina and regular displays...

    That's interesting. Cheers Brett. I've had a look at Sketch, definitely keen on giving it a go, however I must admit though, I'm pretty comfortable with PS at the moment. Old habits die hard...

    That would definitely help. Unfortunately for me, I'm also in this position (https://news.layervault.com/stories/8657-no-space-for-home-workspace-help) so looks like I may be dealing with 200% pixelation.

    Was hoping for a tidier solution. Ha
