Hover state in Prototyping

In our team we're relying on InVison Craft to prototype because of one reason. It allows us to simulate a hover state. Hover states are important when doing user research through prototypes. We would love to get rid of Craft and InVision all together, but it's ridiculous that we…

Glad to see Color Variables in Sketch 69 – what about Text Variables?

While I'm really happy to finally see fully-linked color variables in sketch it makes me wonder when we can expect the long overdue solution to the text styles problem. It would be really neat if we could create a Text style based on Font Family and Font size and work with…
