  • Posted to Open links in a new tab?, Jan 27, 2020

    I think the importance lies in, "is the page I'm leaving important" enough that i wouldn't want to loose it. If it is than a new tab is nice but if it isn't then no new tab is nice.

    In my day to day life I dont consciously think about this type of thing. I do actively open link in new tabs if i want to save where I am on another page though.

  • Posted to What is your experience working on 4k monitors? , Jan 21, 2020

    At home, I work on a 27" 2K monitor. Mostly in Figma and sometimes illustrator. In my workflow, I design at a lowe zoom % so I can see the entire artboard but I preview at 100%. Generally, I have to zoom 1.5x to get an accurate view of my UI on my monitor or it just looks too small. I haven't really affected how I design but more of how I preview my files. Hope this helps.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What am I missing about Figma?, Sep 06, 2019

    So I switched from Sketch to Figma just under a year ago. The thing that took me the longest to figure out is what can and can't be done to components. To use your button example, when your initial button is created (atom) it should contain everything you want for you other variations.

    I work on a Mac for work so I usually duplicate the component by selecting it and holding down option/alt to bring up the double arrows to duplicate it. With this new component, you can change the text, color and turn on or off aspects of the button you created. Any changes to the original component will reflect downward.

    If you keep a naming convention like "component/buttons/active" your button components should be grouped and you will be able to switch between them in the property menu on the right.

    It's been a while so I assume what you mean by rearrange would be something like the tidy up feature in Figma. You should look into it.

    Hope that helps.

    They have been making some changes over the past couple of months, Like allowing anyone upload. I personally gave up on trying to get an invite at some point. I guess we'll see what happens going forward.

  • Posted to Sketch 48, Dec 06, 2017

    I Updated to 48 and have since reverted back to 47 with the help of abstract. I was having text clipping issues that were affecting my current design system. I'm going to wait on 48.1 to see if this gets resolved.

  • Posted to Sponsor: Affinity Designer: the perfect tool for UI and UX design, in reply to Patrick Neufmille , Mar 09, 2017

    Yeah, I'm with you on this one. I use Sketch, AD and illustrator and I have to say the Illustrator has defined what a pen tool should be. I wish more time was dedicated to making the pen tool better for both Sketch and AD.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Dropbox vs. Google Drive, Apr 28, 2016

    I've used both, what are you looking to use it for? general file sync? I currently subscribe to a google drive plan for 100GB and my dropbox is standard account with upgraded storage from invites.

  • Posted to PSA: Stop hiding your preview images with crazy hover transitions. , in reply to Tristam Goch , Jun 06, 2015

    I totally agree. the question should we make sacrificed to our intended design in order to predict the actions of the user.
