Imperative Features to Combat Sketch Dominance
I am long-time Sketch user. There are some things I love about Sketch that makes it a valuable UI / UX design tool that Adobe XD desperately needs!
So far, I am LOVING Adobe XD and plan to continue to experiment with it. However, there are quite a few very necessary features that the XD team NEEDS to implement; especially for web developers.
1. RULERS / GUIDES (the grid is nice, but I am very much missing rulers & guides)
2. The ability to right click on text, an object made in XD, etc. and copy "CSS attributes."
3. Photoshop, Illustrator, AE, PP, all allow expansion via plugins. Sketch does this too. It would be nice to allow plugins in XD, such as a dummy text generator, icon font tool, find and replace, etc.
4. The ability to right click on a photo or imported image and "replace image" while forcing the new imported image / graphic to match the dimensions of the one being replaced.
5. Perhaps an export to Muse function. It would be fantastic if you could do a quick layout then export the layout to Adobe Muse for final tweaking, etc. You could make regions too for the header, footer, etc.
This is all for now. Thanks for hopefully reading my suggestions!
