Welcome to another edition of Polar’s Tip of the iceberg, sharing with you various extensions, tools, shortcuts, and directions to help designers save time, get more done, and improve outcomes as a whole.
As always, we hope you find these useful and if you do, let us know about it and pay it forward by sharing it with your colleagues, contacts, and friends.
And better yet, we’d love to hear some tips of your own :)
While Webflow provides a no-code direction, sometimes you do want to add code for specific needs, or customization, or other things you haven’t found the exact component you want.

Whoa, this is convenience bliss :)
