Every design options Sketch has (style, gradient, type,etc)
Every Prototype options InVision has (gestures, links, etc, etc,etc
Every Animation possibilities Principle has
Every Animation possibilities InVision/Motion will have
Every prototype options InVision/Silver flow will have.
Then you can start using the word "revolutionize"
Because right now their is no way we can switch to that tool !!
I don't want to be rude, I'm sure its a great deal of work, but the promise was that it would be a one-time tool and it is far far far from that...
Thanks again for the honest feedback! If XD does not make sense to you, it’s totally ok to use the tools that make sense to your workflow. Hopefully, we will do a good job, deliver value with our monthly releases, and one day you can start using it for real work.
If you’d like to track the progress in the different areas you highlighted above, could you please break them down in separate feature requests? It would be more useful for you to get updates on the progress of each feature request, separately.
Thanks a lot.
Hi Benoit, I propose that instead of exporting to Frame, XD manage own language, what do you think? http://bit.ly/1OlAoub
Though I appreciate a fully integrated workflow tool, my major critique with pretty much any other Adobe program is, that they are all bloated and by this get crazy incoherent and frustrating. XD so far, seems to go straight down the simplicity route. Please don't steer off of that. If you do wanna something close to a final product, better go learn yourself a coding.

I also Agree with everyone here. All of the features combined into one would be nice.
Again I put this as a reference I really like Flinto and Sketch. https://www.flinto.com/mac
I think Benoit covered it since this is exactly my thoughts. Take the best out of the existing softwares and amp it up by eliminate all our key frustrations. Obviously we would all love to use 1 software versus 5+ softwares every single time we have to go from low fidelity wires, prototypes, then mockups, back to prototypes, then final design to prototype, to coding. Make sure to think of the entire process and how we can communicate it to each other.

Honestly. Benoit's comment is exactly how I'm feeling. I've been an Adobe user for 15+ years. In fact. This year I made the switch to Sketch for my primary application for web/experience design. Adobe. You have the ability to have a fully integrated flow from app to app within Creative Cloud. Take advantage of it. Pair down the product offering and create the application that truly is revolutionary. I want XD, and Adobe, to succeed. Unfortunately I"ve had to seriously consider alternatives to be efficient and provide the best "project experience" for my clients. Sketch, Craft, Silver Flows (soon), and InVision allow for that. Commenting, liveshare, rapid prototyping, and seamless integration. The industry is screaming for it. Adobe. Please don't drop the ball.
Yes. I also hope this is going somewhere - somewhere where we designers can actually do some work (not only would-be trainies or good humored first time designers- students). There is an industry out there, whith a serious need. No show. Just proof of capability.
I understand the concept of user created/ assisted designin/ developping. But the lowest common denominator (marketing) is not always the good choice wen users and people are concerned (who struggle with, yes, complex products and services).
Best practices need to be respected as well. Otherwise you loose the pro user base (humm consumer base). Sad in a way. But I have hope! (not only for the Repeat Grid Wow functionality;-)

I'll definitively stay tuned. I guess I'm just really anxious to get my hand on a tool that will allow me to do design production-ready visuals, prototype high-fidelity interactions and animate more than swipe.
RIght now we are scatter everywhere.
So thanks, and don't wait too long if you wanna steal sketch users ;)
