    Unfortunately, it seems like it doesn't support nested symbols yet: https://github.com/DWilliames/paddy-sketch-plugin/issues/3

    Other than that, it's a pretty great plugin that could replace the Relabel Button and Anima Auto Layout plugins.

  • Posted to UX Designers - How do you Spec?, Mar 08, 2018

    At GitLab we export specs with the awesome Sketch Measure plugin and commit them with Git to our Design repository. Each Git commit triggers a script in that repository (i.e. a continuous integration pipeline) which automatically “uploads” the specs to a publicly accessible URL. Here's an example of an exported spec: gitlab-org.gitlab.io/gitlab-design/hosted/pedro/ce%2328916-spec-previews

    There are no costs involved and everything is open source. The hosting part uses our GitLab Pages feature. We also use this for hosting/sharing Framer prototypes and static HTML pages. You can read more about it on our Superpowers section. We try to dogfood everything!

    While I'm pleased with the improvements, this version doesn't show any of the plugins I had previously installed. It also shows a weird “Debug” menu :? I'm running El Capitan (10.11.6).

    I had to rollback to version 45.2 for the plugins to reappear. I guess I'll have to wait for a new update before moving to 46.x

    Thanks Scott, it's good to hear that this might be useful for you. We always try to be as transparent and open as possible about everything we do at GitLab!

    At GitLab we're in the process of enabling previews for Sketch files. Visually comparing Sketch file differences between Git commits is being discussed here if you want to join the conversation.

    Simple and easy to use, thanks for sharing!

    Two suggestions: 1. The arrow buttons gave me the impression that I could use my keyboard to cycle through and modify the various settings. Why not give that a go? :) 2. Show a random default, based on a set of good presets.

    The way most people perceive the work that is done in this industry (process and output) is a mix of many factors. However, I think it's mostly because of the “professionals” themselves and the consumer society we live in.

    Yes, I could argue that vision is our dominant sense, and because the output of our work is usually visual, most non-designers believe that everything there is to know about the work is right there in front of them. That people tend to look at design work in the same way as they were taught to look at art or any other kind of visual expression that lends itself to individual taste. But the truth is: when people buy something, they don't think about the work behind the clothes, the cars, the digital devices, etc., they just think if it's visually appealing or not, if it has “design” in them or not — because that's what the market wants them to think, they want to dumb down people's choices, to make it easy and fast to buy, to leverage our dependence on vision and buzz-words.

    Ultimately, we are responsible for the way people perceive our industry. Do we really want to perpetuate the notion that “design” is a product “feature”? How do you feel about resuming your work to a bullet point?
