This is obviously not Pablo’s fault, but the use of “oval” instead of “ellipse” must stop. Oval ≠ ellipse.
An ellipse is a mathematically accurate description for the tool most of us are familiar with in our design apps (a circle or scaled circle). An oval is just an egg-like convex curvy shape with no strict mathematical definition.
I like this article.
The designer job is here to stay. Although design systems make a designer’s job much more efficient, they cannot be put in the pilot’s seat when it comes to creating an authentic design process.
Yep. And, efficiency gains are easily spent on higher expectations.
Ha! Nice. Version 5.0 added multiple undo.
Yep, it can definitely be used for good or bad purposes.
I can't think of a scenario where the consequences of making a choice would be 'dire'.
Ignoring extreme scenarios, even mild data loss or minor inconveniences are something that UI designers should be doing everything they can to avoid.
It was pretty amazing at the time!
Dpaint IV on Amiga for me.
You can definitely make dark theme Mac apps, without needing Mojave. :D
That’s simply not true. Removing the save action works for many apps and scenarios where it’s easy to autosave or constantly sync with a server, but there are many situations where save is needed — like when the save action is destructive, or when it means saving a huge amount of data and should happen when the customer decides to save (not automated on a schedule).
There is a very good reason why pro apps like Logic and Photoshop sill have Save and Save As, rather than a timed autosave.
Yeah, they definitely do!
