    Wow, since 2016? I love how responsive Adobe is.
    Of course, they have a habit of forcing things on you. For instance, in their video software they give you a ton of LUTs that you'll never use, but they are listed in program files so if you want to (and have rights to) change them, you have to do it for every update or they come back. Use dual monitors and set up workspaces? Same crap. They store them in stupid locations, and they push their own on you. So you better keep a backup somewhere or when they do a full version update your previous workspaces are gone. The funnies part of that is that the workspace is stored with the file, but it won't actually be used unless you actually Have it on your computer.
    Adobe's usability, especially cross program, is a joke.

    This feature really isn't Needed, But it's nice to have and would just make using the software more pleasant. Also, why in the world did they not make the categories collapsible? I'll likely never use a watch template. Let me just collapse it and keep it that way until I open it up. Maybe let me favorite some of the templates also and keep those in their own menu. This really isn't something that's incredibly difficult to do. If they would just either do it, or have them all stored in a simple XML (or similar, like json maybe) file (OUTSIDE of program files, and outside of specific Versions too) then that would even be good enough.

    It's been 4 years and XD is now Slightly better than just prototyping in powerpoint. Way to go team. lol
    Obvious sarcasm. Without things like allowing one component to change another, text input of Some sort, and basic if statements, it's really just not much better than powerpoint.

    Well, you can't do this, but remember, we have the super useful Voice feature. :/

    I keep looking at XD, but we keep having to use something else. XD seems to really JUST be about how something looks, but good experience design is more about how it actually works. Making it pretty is just part of that.
    So we're using Proto.io to deliver a looks like, feels like prototype. It doesn't do much because it doesn't have interaction outside of itself. It can't control an LED. So we fake that with an onscreen light if we need. Or I capture commands with something else if we get that far.
    But it has very basic (I mean VERY) variables to control a few things, custom animations, and you can really get a decent prototype of what you're after. Delivering that to the actual developer ensures you end up with something much closer. They can even look at the code if they are having troubles developing it. That usually gives them a hint on how to accomplish the same look and feel.

    We just need basic If thens. If the advanced button hasn't been hit, don't show these items. If the user hasn't filled in their name, show them an error if they try and advance.
    We need to be able to show those things. Right now people are creating a Ridiculous number of artboards showing, what they think are, every possible screen to the developer. But with XD you can't actually go through them, because they are Context based. So it doesn't really help.

    Seriously, sometimes the developer is great at programming, but just plain dumb when it comes to user interaction. XD Could be the tool to show that interaction. It's getting Closer, but still not useable.

    Just in Mind is pretty good. Proto.io is good. Axure is both terrible and good.
