Wow that's great, thanks for the video. That is indeed exactly what I need
Thanks! And there's no equivalent of AutoLayout's stacks in Figma yet right? This spectrum thread seems to confirm.
Do you happen to know if Figma can automatically resize components to fit wrapped text? Here's an example of what I mean in Sketch:
Each list item is a symbol. The original (top) does not wrap. I have them stacked vertically with Anima's AutoLayout plugin, but when I override the text on one list item to be so long that it wraps, the symbol does not increase its height to accomidate the wrapping text. There's no command to do it either, I have to manually drag the height down and eyeball it.
I think it's more difficult in general when you are remote, but working with others who are not. I have found selling design to be much less of an issue in a 100% remote environment.
Been working remote for over a year, you are spot on! (especially about the plants, is working from home really the cause of my obsession?)
For Demo 7, where does Wikipedia use it?
If small file size is your aim, LICEcap is your game.
I think this all comes back to how impersonally people can treat each other on the internet, especially large community sites like DN. The 3rd comment here is:
The website welcomes you with a full-screen background video of Helen, followed closely by a portrait of Helen, scroll down a bit further to reveal 3 more photos of Helen... I really want to like Helen, however now I sort of think she's a bit vain. Maybe dial down the Helen-ness at the top a notch and move some of it to an "About me" section. Otherwise the top feels like a really well-designed dating profile.
This is someone's personal site, people put a lot of themselves into these things. All critiques deserve respect, but I think personal sites warrant a little extra. So is it respectful to call someone's portfolio "vain"? I can't help but think that word would sting a little being on the receiving end. The comment is written with authority and lacks empathy for how Helen would feel reading it.
ordinary humans who desperately need the education that only people like you can provide
I don't think it's right to place the responsibility to educate/change others on the person who is experiencing the bullying. As Antonia said, it wears you down.
Those of us lucky enough not to experience harassment can help out by taking the initiative ourselves. See a comment that's clearly rude/bulling? Call them out. That action shouldn't fall solely to the person or group on the receiving end.
Each agency probably defines good performance a bit differently. I would find out their performance goals, then try to come up with some specific questions around them. Then see if you can use GA to answer the questions (sometimes you can't).
For example, the goal of one agency's website might be to get people to download one of their apps. Maybe there's a homepage, plus a dedicated page for each app. A specific question could be:
Is the homepage good at helping people discover our apps?
GA could tell you where people go after visiting the homepage, if they bounce or perhaps overwhelmingly view one app over the others.
