    I wonder if LayerVault was ahead of its time, or if this next wave of similar products will see the same fate. Great idea, but for whatever reason, it didn't work out.

    Yea, that white flash is really annoying. I'd rather have a normal page transition than that.

    This isn't really design-related, is it? It is just a marketing form driven (and designed) by Typeform.

    Photoshop has many alternatives with different feature-sets, but InDesign is a little more difficult to replace. Affinity Designer looks like it has some print-specific features, but I doubt that it does everything you might need InDesign to do.

    I'm a little unclear on what the $30/mo gets you.

    Is it $30/mo for each piece? Then do you need to buy it or return it when you don't feel like paying the $30/mo?

    This is awesome, although the file limit strikes me as kinda weird. I could make a complex using 3 files and terrible organization, or a very simple app with many files that are organized really well and made maintainable.

    Applying a baseline rhythm to a group of selected elements would be powerful.

    These guys looked very promising, but eventually shut down: https://assemblymade.com

    I can't remember if it was Assembly or another one of those sites, but they always seem to suffer from too much noise. It seemed like new projects were proposed every day by an excited individual who "has a great idea", pushing yesterday's good ideas down an infinite list. You might find something cool, but the user who posted it left ages (months, days, hours) ago, and new users aren't going to scroll that far down to find it.

    Make it easy to find projects with momentum (maybe list commit activity if it is dev related, or other measures of progress), while also allowing new projects to bubble up. There might be something there with new users vs. returning users.
