    Plus Palette Gear mange to zoom in and out without moving the cursor, which means they aren't firing keyboard shortcuts (or at least public ones) as far as I know.

    I looking into this an Arduino has no default Mouse scroll. Also PS and Illustrators zoom function work on the X axis and not the Y axis. Bit of a head scratcher!

    Thanks. I know about the Palette gear stuff which is amazing. I'm essentially making a low cost version of this for fun.

    I'll have to look into that. Right now I can do a mouse move which of course causes the cursor to move on screen. Thanks for the tip though.

    Hmmm I think they went a little crazy with the grid ... the site really lacks any visual hierarchy.

    Very interesting article here on how UX is basically ignoring emotion in the design process.

    Just a little reminder that we are in the "business" of critique. If you can't handle it, then you chose the wrong profession. Your colleagues will critique your work, your clients will critique your work, and users will critique your work. You won't always like it – but it's going to happen anyway. Learn how to handle feedback and argue your point respectfully.

    What Eli is criticizing here isn't Framer, it a whole industry. He just focused on this as a means to argue his point. I've yet to see a solid rational argument in the other direction (not about Framers gradients, but about the Industry's penchant for promoting minor upgrades as ground-breaking). Seems like people saw who wrote the article and formed opinions without diving into the actual substance of the piece.

    They don't really offer explanations as to why they reject you (which I can understand given the amount of applications they get). But I do know, they prefer sites that are essentially blog that link out to products. For example if I had other pages on my site detailing how to decorate a child's room in a Space theme, and other things like that, then I might have been accepted. Plus I might have applied too early. Without driving a ton of traffic in reality they don't need my $200 a month I'd send their way.

    And I think they just dislike "catalogue" sites. Mine was curated, which at least offers some value, but I can see people abusing this and essentially rebuilding Amazon and linking out to them. It would weaken their brand.

    Well That was short lived. Amazon reviewed the site and won't allow me to be an affiliate :( Thankfully I didn't invest too much money into this website (about $20 total).

    But hey, you live and learn!
