July’s Product Updates at Marvel

Posted 4 months ago by Graeme Fulton

Sometimes, smaller incremental changes can go unnoticed alongside major product releases but without them, a product would probably be completely different.

It’s the same with Marvel – we’re always making those small changes that lead to a better product. Our Customer Experience team is constantly listening and sharing your feedback with the rest of the Marvel staff so we can understand how you work and know what’s irritating you in order to prioritise new features and fixes. Here are the 4 areas we improved this July:

1. The Line Tool

3. Sketch Plugin Improvements

4. Design Tool Updates

A fresh cut of the design tool is also live now. Check out the 3 subtle, but important changes we’ve made:

That’s all for this update, get in touch if you have any questions. Also, if you’re on our company or enterprise plan, contact your dedicated account manager for more details.
