Is project size the ACTUAL project size?

I do have a quick question (which kind of also relates to a problem we're having). The project size shown in the list - is that the ACTUAL project size? I have the impression, that, if it shows 50MB the actual project is way bigger due to commits and history, therefore takes way…

Best way to wrap up a project

Hey. Just wondering what would be the best way to wrap up a project in Abstract. We've just launched a phase 1 of the build. The repo grew to something like 80+Gb and is a pain to sync with new members. We don't really need the whole backlog of commits/merges/feedback/etc. So I…

Initial sync of projects takes forever

Hey, we're trying to transition our workflow to Abstract right now. Unfortunately, if a designer joins a project (just to make some minor adjustments) he has to sync the project, which takes forever. Even small projects with 20MB files sometimes take 45 minutes (or longer) to…

Core image library

Hi, does anyone know how I can create a core set of images as a library? I talking about a core set of avatars for dummy users displayed in a software project mock up. Eventually we'll connect our mock ups to an API to replace images more general, but in the first instance I…

What about diverged branches?

Today a coworker run into a diverge branch. I was unable to see their changes for 2 days, and even though she was making new commits, they were no visible to anyone else. I kind of understand that maybe she made changes offline or made changes before her branch updated, but I'm…

Project descriptions no longer searchable?

When did this happen? Search results used to include the project description. My team was using this as a way to get around the super short character limit on project titles, so we'd include keywords in the project description to make sure our projects were still discoverable…
