Per this meta I'm proposing to make this question a Canonical, so it can be used as a dupe hammer for similar questions like 'how do I mockup', 'free mockup tool', 'present photorealistic logo', etc.

Some similar questions, with varying degrees of quality in questions and answers:

    We should link all of these questions on the canonical one so that they can show up in the Linked on the side.

    @WELZ Good idea. It's as easy as posting a comment with the link to the canonical Q/A

  • It can't be the target of a dupe hammer on GD if it's on GD meta instead of GD itself.

  • The main problem with canonical answers is that they fail to account for the nuance.

  • @joojaa I agree. In this case, a lot of the questions are exact copies though. At other times, it might be more interesting to link to the question and add more information or nuance in an answer. A Canonical is just a tool, it's available if needed, but shouldn't be used for things it was not intended for.

  • @PieBie well the how to make a polar array question is quite common

  • Did you ever make this canonical? Feb 13 '19 at 17:28
  • Ah, let me dig around in my ailing memory. I think the questions got linked, but the canonical itself was never created.
