    I just hope they end up releasing a 15" without Touchbar. Apple doesn't admit mistakes very often. It will be interesting to see if they correct it.

    Follow-on question—how does it feel for files with 30 or more artboards?

    It's not obvious that the picture is related to the password field. Had I not had the preface that this helped visualize the password, I probably would have thought it was a gif or something.

    Regardless, it's a cool effect.

    Love the renders—especially the the eye that follow your mouse in the Follow the Money section.

    Headline seems a bit too vague though.

    This should not be tagged as site design. This is a blog post.

    For what it's worth, I've been having a pretty interesting discussion with him on Twitter over the article.

  • Posted to Sketch adds prototyping in version 49, Mar 02, 2018

    Love the feature to connect elements to art boards via lines—It's going to be super helpful for putting together quick userflows.

    On the other hand it seems to have slowed the application down a ton. Even with only a handful of art boards the application has terrible lag.

  • Posted to Ask DN: 500 Error for DN Notificaitons?, in reply to Gavin Anthony , Jan 30, 2018

    This is what happened to me for a while. It wasn't a huge bother, so I didn't worry about it.

    I'm a pretty old member, #484. I wonder if there is a certain number of notifications that a User reaches that causes the issue?

    Dark applications are much less straining to read in low-light. I don't want every application to be dark, but I do appreciate it for applications I spend a lot of time in.

    After using IA Writer's Night Mode, it's hard to go back to Google Docs.

  • Posted to Designer News trolls get checked by HUGE names in the design community, Nov 16, 2017

    I generally only flag posts when it appears to be spam and should be removed. I don't think people's opinions should be removed from the discussion, but it seems that whatever is the most polarizing always appears at the top.

    At one point I was against implementing a down-voting mechanism, but I've done a 180 and think downvoting is a feature this community needs.

    As you mentioned, I don't think discourse itself is toxic, but the problem I see over and over again is that these long polarizing discussions make it to the top of these threads.
