Using Design is extremely simple:
Design features the following components:
Once Design has loaded, you can load each individual component by simply clicking on the icon representing that component in the Design control panel. You can then disable that component by clicking the icon again. Any combination of the Design components can by loaded on a page, and they will all work effectively together. Indeed, Design is often at it's most useful when using several of it's components at the same time.
Each component can be loaded as a 'standalone bookmarklet' through the instructions of each of their individual pages. Further information about each of the Design components can be found on their respective pages by following the links above.
One of the main issues I want to address with future versions is the speed of some of the components. Grid and Rule in-particular could use some further optimisation, beyond what has already been done, to make their interface more snappy. Future features include a mechanism to measure the distance between guides directly in Rule and constrain to angles in Unit.
It would be really great to hear from you if you use Design, so please get in touch!
The following browsers are supported in Design:
No IE6 support? Nope. Design and it's components are designed and developed for you as web-developers and designers, not your clients (who of course still required IE6 support), so I see no need to support it in this case (feel free to disagree!). If we at the front of the field don't move on, how can we expect the larger community to do so?
