Khoi Vinh called that the monoculture of SV or something
Not as much as I’d like to. I often spec designs on Confluence, one feature per page. Those pages often have discarded versions and the rationale behind the decisions. But after an interview with Ray Dalio convinced me everyone should log all important decisions: - to be more aware of the decisions we otherwise often make subconsciously - to not fool ourselves into thinking we’re smart by ignoring bad decisions we’ve made in the past - to learn what decision making process work well
Hi Johannes, thanks for your comments. I'm sorry the post didn't live up to your expectations. When coming up with the title, I hoped that those who know the difference between font and typeface would know what it would be about and those who don't would be pleasantly surprised it wasn't about creating whole new typefaces but about something they can apply themselves.
The SIL License you're referring to could be quite problematic to many designers:
Original Version" refers to the collection of Font Software components as distributed by the Copyright Holder(s).
"Modified Version" refers to any derivative made by adding to, deleting, or substituting — in part or in whole — any of the components of the Original Version, by changing formats or by porting the Font Software to a new environment.
2) Original or Modified Versions of the Font Software may be bundled, redistributed and/or sold with any software, provided that each copy contains the above copyright notice and this license.
That could even apply to the practice of outlining a document before sending it to a print shop. Which is actually what some DRM protected fonts require and is recommended by their publishers! How do you see that?
I didn't forget about this and finally got around fixing it. I decided to make a custom font for it, because I couldn't find a number font matching what I was looking for. I just wrote a blog post about the process. I haven't updated the app yet though.
Hi Alex, what parts specifically are outdated?
Thanks to the feedback I got here and elsewhere, I was able to correct mistakes. I also included a bit more on animation in the post.
I guess you mean Figma and InVision Studio having Electron apps and not real native apps? Contrary to what I expected, I haven't found that to affect performance. In fact, Sketch (about which they say there's no Windows version because they can only make it perform well on Mac) seems to be the slowest with files with lots of screens, especially when zooming and panning. Opening a design in Figma can take several seconds, but I do that only a few times a day.
Sure, let's continue in DMs!
Haha nice, it seems you had a good time doing it. I was a bit grumpy when I read it and thought why the hell does a company of that size need somebody to do a project that big in their spare time. I take it back though.
Thanks Charles! I can see how you wouldn't agree with my verdict, but I was still on Version 0.94.20 from July 24. Would you recommend using InVision Studio today on production work?
Keyframe animation is in the feature comparison table, but I could highlight that in the text better.
Is there anything that I missed that would affect my recommendations?
