All functions of Adobe Fireworks
Can you import all the features that were available in Adobe Fireworks. That was a great product I know a number of people still use.
We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

Same here. We ara early users of Fireworks and our leading activity in UX/UI have a great help from Fireworks. It's packed with all features that allow us to use layout building, time based animations, bitmap editing, and mockup presentations in one single place.
It would be great if you Adobe teams of XD could bring the Fireworks features into XD so to get a great product.
The topic in this discussion could seem generic but if we look at what Fireworks can do it has to be so generic because there are a lot of features that can be implemented and not a single one.
So we vote for that!

You own the Fireworks IP. Instead of reinventing the wheel, just modernize Fireworks.
Agreed. I'm not planning on running an XD + Photoshop combo just to be able to do what Fireworks can do on its own. Still using Fireworks daily, by the way and I'm never switching to Photoshop, but I would switch to XD if it integrates Fireworks' main features (including bitmap editing).

Would really love to have some Fireworks workflow and tools in XD. I love XD so far but still lacks some features for my day to day use.
One feature I loved of Fireworks are "Automatic Vector Mask", they were outstandingly quick to use!
Adobe XD needs to incorporate the tools and workflow from Fireworks. Notably Bitmap editing capabilities and Layers.

Unfortunately, this situation we are in is the result of thousands of UX designers who went out of their way to never use Fireworks, and it getting abandoned. Sad state of affairs.
Oh well, another app I get to learn!
Ad XD so far is Kindergarden level
That would be very useful
