    Agreed… also for the prototyping tool, the main thing missing is fixed header/footer elements or a scrollable view.

    Love this extension! I would also love to see Outline as an extension or even as bookmark tool. Copy and pasting is two too many steps for me lol

    Congrats on the release! Digging it so far. Has tons of potential.

    Comments / Suggestions:

    1) When duplicating objects, why are the new objects offset (down and to the left)? 2) I would love to have the ability to measure the distance between objects. 3) Is there a particular reason pages don't contain art boards? I've gotten accustomed to working on with multiple artboards on the same page as opposed to one 'artboard' per page.

    P.S. Looking forward to prototyping and animation :)

  • Posted to Fixed my "Daily UI Challenge" layout. Thanks for your feedback!, Mar 18, 2017

    Hey, Roman! Totally digging your mission and the product thus far. I think you can make it easier for people to download the UI Kit. Initially, I thought the feature badges on the top right would lead me somewhere, then I tried the 'FREE' copy in the description, followed by the Day 5 next updates card.

    It wasn't clear how to get the kit until I scrolled down and hovered over the previous release cards that I learned that I could download the kit from those pages. Maybe try adding a 'download latest build' button somewhere prominent and making the 'next updates' card less 'clickable' (e.g. removing the hover shadow).

    Hope this helps, Cheers!

  • Posted to Any Web Designers Sharing Work On Instagram? Does It Help You Gain Clients? , Jan 04, 2017

    It depends on your audience/followers. Most of my friends are designers and artists. Most, if not all of my followers are also designers and artists. I only post the things I want to post which is mainly my work, that's why they are following me. I've definitely gotten work through Instagram on multiple occasions but not intentionally. But I'm mainly referring to my personal account. If you want a separation of concerns, try creating a business account. Most agencies do!

    Shameless plug lol: lets chat on IG! @crookedpixel
