I was so excited for Studio, I went to the demo in Amsterdam and waited quite a time for my invite to come in. And when it finally came in, I experienced all of this. Opened it a few times after that, still mostly the same. Never really used it either because of this. This is on a fully specced out MBP 15" 2017.
Been using a Rains 'Runner' for about 3 years now. Lots of space, there's no way any water is coming in when it's raining so my macbook's safe, made out of strong material so it basically still looks as good as the day I bought it. However, it is really big though so I'm looking for something new aswel. I kinda want a Visvim E-Cat but they're super expensive so I'm still looking around.
Damn I waited so long for this. Even checked Affinity's twitter yesterday to see if I missed some news about it. Can't wait to get home and check it out!
Thanks for your reply, really helpful stuff! The hand-off stuff sounds great. That's one of the biggest pain-points we're currently experiencing in our workflow. Glad to hear Figma solves this for you.
If you open a poster's page you can see the data used for generating the poster by pressing 'data' in the bottom left corner. Cool stuff!
I've been on the iOS 12 developer beta (iPhone X, intel modem) since WWDC and haven't had any complaints. I only have the occasional visual bug where the navbar kind of glitches and shrinks (but is still useable). iOS12 is pretty cool but definitely not a real big upgrade though. If you're worried about the bugs there's not much you're missing until it fully releases in september.
So tempted with all the Figma hype to try it out again. I've tried it ages ago and just really didn't feel like moving away from Sketch at the time.
The post by Koen to the FB group says a whole lot more compared to the website. It all sounds pretty good, excited to see what the Framer team has come up with.
‘’’Hey Framer friends. For the last half year, we’ve been building a new product: Framer X. I’m happy to announce it today and that we’ll work as hard as we can to get it into your hands soon.
The original goal of Framer was to help people express interactive ideas. Over the years we built Framer into a full-fledged design tool that supports the whole design process, but our tool also became two products in one. We’re going to fix this with a giant leap forward.
Framer X will be more advanced than ever, using components to build entire interactive design systems based on React and ES6.
Yet, it will be easier than ever for everyone to perform common design tasks like producing graphics, expressing responsive layouts, building flows, and setting up advanced scrolling. Plus a whole lot more.
At Framer we’ve always believed that direct manipulation (canvas) and code could be mixed in a way to better express ideas. But we also want everyone to be able to use Framer and build on each other’s work. Framer X will get us very close to this and we can’t wait to show you how.

I've been waiting for Affinity Designer on iPad for so long already. Currently just use Affinity Photo since those vector tools are pretty good too. Most of the apps for iPad seem to be targeted towards drawn illustrations more than regular simple vector work.
First time I 'designed' something was a pair of 3d hands in a tool called 'anim8or'. Just looked it up and apparently the development is still sort of continuing. The website still looks the same as it did in the early 00's.
