Cease to Increase

I imagine I’m not the only Sketch user who maximizes their document window. Unfortunately, this creates an interaction problem with Sketch’s scrubby steppers.

The value cannot increase further once the cursor reaches the edge of the screen.

When the window is maximized (full-screen or zoomed), the Inspector is very close to the edge of the screen, meaning there isn’t much room to travel to increase the value by clicking and dragging a stepper to the right. As of version 51.2, the value stops increasing once the cursor reaches the edge.

Instead, Sketch should detect that the cursor has hit the edge of the screen and keep increasing the value as long as the cursor remains at the edge. Infinite depth!

Originally a few tweets, posted here for posterity. I filed a feature suggestion with the Sketch team.
