Hey Anthony, great article. I’ve been using that technique for a while now. I agree with you, it definitely saved me lot of time.
Just as a matter of interest, what’s your flow to search a specific icon within an iconfont?
My current flow:
- I created a custom search within Alfred app to search icon(s) on http://glyphsearch.com/?copy=unicode&query=%my-query%
- I copy the unicode and paste it to sketch
- Done ✔️
The downside of copying unicode in a new text box is that sketch fallback to .LastResort font-family. You then need to set the chosen iconfont to the text box.
