How to access App preferences?

a) Use this shortcut CTRL + , (on Windows or Linux) CMD + , (on Mac)

b) Click on "Avocode" in the top bar of your Avocode window (on the left of the bar) and select "Preferences".

UI font size

The font in the Avocode app can be changed from Normal to Large.

Switch between Dark and Light theme

By default, the look of Avocode is set to white (Light theme). If you prefer a dark look (for example to match the the Night mode on macOS Mojave), you can.

Default export path

Set up a path to a folder on your computer where you'd like to save all exported image assets. This default path will be pre-set for all new projects that you create within your team.

Disable image export optimization

By default all your exported image assets (to PNG, JPEG, and SVG) will be optimized. If you want to export the image without optimizing the file size, just disable the optimization.

Disable sharp vector rendering over 100% zoom

If your machine doesn’t meet the technical requirements of our desktop app or doesn’t support WebGL, checking the "Disable progressive rendering of shapes when zooming" box might help.

Overwrite file if exists

Check this option, if you don’t want Avocode to ask you to overwrite files while exporting images with the same name that is already in the export folder.


Disable all sounds
Switch of all sounds - like the success ping when you upload a design.

Drag selection must contain and entire layer to be selected

If you turn it on you will need to drag the selection over the entire layer to be selected.

If you turn it off, you can drag the selection to just a part (at least one pixel) of the given layer (you basically just touch it) and it will be already counted into your selection (so you can export it, see common styles, etc.).

This speaks for itself.
