AMA: InVision Design Leads On What’s Coming Next

    There are a bunch of microinteractions that changed when Invision released it's last big version. Y'alI went really minimal with the UI and I personally find the changes a hinderance to this day.

    For example, when I upload a bunch of designs at once, the invision UI has the designs appear pretty immediately on the webpage as if they are all uploaded. But when I click into the design, the webpage loads a white page and I have to refresh the screen a few times before I see anything. My internet is not blazing fast depending where my physical location is. While in older versions of Invision, when I upload designs, there will be a visual state that indicates that things are still uploading.

    Another example is that the 'upload/create' plus button is a lot smaller and harder to subconsciously click nowadays since it's small and has a smaller hit range.

    My question is how did y'all come up with such design decisions? How did y'all rationalize the marginalization of affordances for "sleek UI"?

      Hey Jay, I’d love to have you chat with Charles Pearson , (one of our excellent researchers here)- super important that we capture this feedback and look for growth opportunities. I'll have him reach out.

      Regarding the uploading specifically, I believe you may have stumbled upon a bug there - it’s meant to let you instantly work with your local images (both as a thumbnail and in the editor) if they are taking some time to upload. I’ll contact support about this, thanks!
