    Yeah, it is indeed strange for the first hour. But after that, it feels as good as Sketch, or event better. We're 4 people that have switched from Abstract+Sketch to Figma and felt all the same way. This is what Sketch felt like when we were used to Photoshop. I guess it's the same, and it just takes a little getting used to.

    I don't think making it native as Sketch would be a good move, since it defeats the whole purpose of what being web-based means. When other people can comment and extract info from your file without asking "where the latest version is" and "have you uploaded the latest to Zeplin" you will see why your design file being a link is incredible.

    Move away from Sketch, and start using Figma. You can tag versions, it autosaves some for you, and you can go back in time to copy stuff from older version without leaving the file.

    In terms of distributed teams and history keeping, it is a dream come true. It might seem daunting to make the move at first, but you will not be looking back in a couple months.

    Nice website, fine work. But is it just me or talking about yourself in the third person feels a bit strange?

    Yeah, but I struggled to know what it was about, where to attend and else. That's the point.

    Am I the only one who found it very hard to get and far from the best way of showing information about a workshop?

    +1 for A Small Orange. Great pricing. Great support. Great control panel.

    I feel like discounts always ripoff us loyal customers. I've spent quite some money on the iPad, iPhone and Mac versions, and now everyone else can get if for free.

    Brazil. 6ms ping, I guess distance is not an issue.
