That category of question basically asks, “Why are you not like me?” Seriously. We are all different and have different reasons for doing what we do. Some people have a messy room and others a tidy room. I have a tidy room at home, but I prefer more freedom when it comes to linking Resources in Blocs. Had someone asked that question to SoftPress engineers, no Save Archive feature would have ever been added to their Freeway app. I’m glad they added it though.
I’m happy to explain why. Freeway Pro 7 is ideal web design software for sites that are NOT responsive. But for responsive websites, I’ve never been able to figure out who to create them in Freeway. For that reason, I have been dipping my toes in Blocs since version 2.x (testing) but did not find it feature rich enough for me until version 3.x, and I purchased Blocs recently. Making comparisons is only natural. Have you never visited the Affinity forums and seen just how many comparisons are made between Affinity Photo and Photoshop or Affinity Designer and Illustrator? There are many, and I myself have contributed to some of those posts too!
So rather than tell me, “Blocs isn’t Freeway, so it makes little sense to continuously compare them,” perhaps we should be more open-minded about how to make Blocs even better. And what better way to ponder Blocs than to come from another web design app that is much older and in many ways more feature rich?
So my contributions on this site are coming from that standpoint. I can’t help it. I’ve been using Freeway since version 2.x in 1999. And I continue to use Freeway to this day to maintain existing sites built in Freeway. That’s twenty years of continuous use! My remarks about Freeway are as natural as breathing. And @Norm knows that. So far, he has viewed my comments rather positively. And to be sure, I really like Blocs and want to see it exceed for everyone, not just myself.
Lastly, some people think things like “please don’t request such-and-such because that will distract the developer from implementing more important things.” Of course, those “more important things” are typically those things which are important to YOU. But at the end of the day, @Norm is a big boy and can make wise decision on what he wants to implement and what to put away for another day. The worst thing we can do is stop the flow of ideas.
Thanks and best wishes.
