So I decided to stop using Sketch because the Alt+Scroll which I use all the time across many apps is reversed, opposite to every other piece of design/photo/video software I use. It drives me nuts when working with Sketch and PS/Ai together. So I install XD in the hope of alleviating my frustration - and much to my amazement - XD is also opposite to PS/Ai.
I understand Adobe wanting to make the transition from Sketch to XD as barrier-free as possible (let's not forget this is about money more than just creating perfect software), but it's really quite common for XD users to be PS and AI users too so the addition of an option to change zoom direction seems the way to go here. But then you will have to build a 'Preferences' interface as XD doesn't even have that.
@ Corey - This is proof that Apple doesn't always get things right and just simply following suit isn't the best option. Apple's 'natural' scroll is perfect for up/down scroll (scroll up - document moves up, scroll down - document moves down). So 'natural' zoom would be (scroll away - document moves away, scroll in - document moves in).
@Michael - No it hasn't been addressed yet and unfortunately I guess only 4 comments per year isn't going to motivate anybody to want to address it.
UPDATE: It looks like there is a Sketch Plugin that allows scroll direction reversal so switching back to Sketch is looking good right now.
