    Glad you enjoy! We added a ton of type features: classifications filter, font similarity, font favorites, and most recently used.

    Everything in my UI toolkit is already on my screen, whether it's in a dialog, a menu or a panel. I'm working within the boundaries of a well established system. It's easy to grab a screenshot at 1x and build up from there. Sometimes I do draw elements of the Photoshop UI. What tends to be flat bitmaps in my comps are icons and certain widgets (e.g., checkboxes).

    Yep, we do use Photoshop to design Photoshop. I'm guilty of trying to close dialogs on my canvas that aren't the actual UI.

    Hi Daniel,

    Do you make use of Auto-Select? http://imgur.com/8blcxiG

    I find it helps to turn on Auto-Select when working with .PSDs with many, many layers. Cuts down on scrolling in the layers panel. It can also be toggled on temporarily by holding down the Command key while using the Move Tool.

    I'll bring up scrolling tweaks to the team. Thanks!

    Thanks for starting this thread. We've shared this with the team. I'll be going through everything on here in my downtime.

    Libraries can share and store assets that can be Layers, Layer Groups, Smart Objects and Linked Smart Objects. It's not just for Smart Objects. I find it extremely helpful to create assets for reuse that are made of only layers so I can quickly drag them onto the canvas for editing. Styles, both text and effects, can be stored and reused. They can be applied by clicking on the style when the object or layer are selected.

    Hi Rami,

    A bit about Guides. Photoshop does give measurements with Smart Guides when holding down the Command key. If a layer or object is selected and you want to compare it to something else on the page, mouse over the non-selected object for distance.

    Since the June release we've updated Smart Guides to detect the horizontal and vertical center of the canvas and to be better at detecting relationships.

    Please check out Design Libraries. I find it really helpful when dealing with Smart Objects and quickly refining and drafting ideas. One of the things I do with it is to drag in variations during my design process so I can drag back out and quickly edit. It's use goes beyond creating finalized assets and styles.

    It's changed my workflow pretty significantly. If you create a new asset from a Linked Smart Object, CC Libraries will remember the location on the server. It's a way to get linked shared assets for a team. Photoshop will sync when reopened.

    Yep, this release has Guide Layout and New Guides from Shape. The Guides from Shape feature is meant to quickly create layout columns based on content already on the canvas. I didn't spec a keyboard shortcut, but find it helpful to assign one. I use Control + Command + ;
