    I can't speak for OP, but early Sketch was super buggy and lacking certain major features. In some respects, it still is... as a 1.0, AD felt much more polished and iterated more rapidly. The whole "pan and zoom 1,000,000%"business is just nuts. That sort of thing would bring Sketch to its knees and beachball for days.

    (I say this as a long-time user/fan of Sketch.)

      Honestly, I love Sketch—The Invision Craft plugin has really done some crazy stuff to extend that love. However, I'm not attached to it that I won't try something new.. just slightly hesitant after spending so much time utilising Sketch, designing shared symbol libraries for the UX and visual design teams to use, amongst other things.

      AD looks brill, in fact it looks like Photoshop.. which is something I still have nightmares about. It's great to hear they're coming out with a rival to InD, perhaps the only Adobe software I still use (and still enjoy).

      Sketch is far from buggy now, it's usually plugins that cause issues.. I do however miss the extra control on things like typography which I understand AD solves. Does it have a light UI by any chance?

        light UI is something they're bringing to the next versions of Design / Photo, iirc
