    Yes, while that is still true, it's easy to flush those files out and regain space, without losing the actual files.

    Hi Shane,

    256GB should be more than sufficient. I would recommend storing/archiving non-working copies on an external USB3 or Thunderbolt drive (whatever you already have or your budget permits).

    A quick explanation on working copies: 1. Say you'll be working on files A.sketch, B.sketch and C.psd, copy those over to your rMBP's drive and work off those. 2. Once you're done, move those over to the external drive. You could even consider just copying them over instead to keep a healthy mirror, but this will end up in consuming disk space on your rMBP. 3. When you need those files, copy them back.

    If your budget futher permits, I'd recommend investing in an external drive to be solely used as a Time Machine backup drive. This may sound pointless right now, but believe me, when all hope is lost, it'll save your bacon.

    Good luck with the purchase, and congrats.

    Deleting this folder on a montly basis usually clears up a good 20GB for me.

    We, at Dezine Zync, created Esfresco to solve two simple problems: our finanical data stays on our devices and, easily customizable invoices.

    It also boasts reminders for when invoices are due, tracking payments and some other nitfy features.

    Hey, good question. We've been considering all devices that have iCloud support. But bringing this to the Mac would compromise on the mobility part, but I don't see why we can't take on the "ease" part. Consider your question taken up as a request by us.

    UIn seems better? Like the suggestion.

    It seems like I am. I think it makes sense, as you've suggested, to outline all of them before the actual content begins. I might just go with UA for User Interaction. Thanks for your feedback.

    Yes, that's certainly one way to go about this. (it's my plan C)

    I suppose it would be an acronym?

    I would be using it as follows:

    UI: element's name (as noted in a diagram accompanying this block) UA: (action, as you've suggested, eg. Tap) > what should happen when this is invoked.
