    This is a tough one. On one hand, having a stand alone, lightweight UI focused design tool built from the ground up would be awesome. Designing in Photoshop feels sluggish and having a lightweight, single-use app could really improve that.

    On the other, the thing that keeps me using Photoshop for UI is that I often need to manipulate photos. If I'm working in Sketch and I need an image, I have to open PS, edit the image, save it out (losing non-destructive editing in Sketch), and import into Sketch.

    If the Design Space were to be a standalone app, I think it would benefit from having extremely tight integration with Photoshop. i.e. photos remain smart objects in Design Space and could be easily opened, edited, and saved in PS.

      Creative cloud intagration would be insanely beneficial. A tool with advanced cloud coupling would greatly improve workflow for designers (I currently use Dropbox). As in say I could just export, share, link, quicky hand off my design file, and save versions of a file that'd just be perfect.

      Also can version control be a feature? Similar to git hub or what later vault was. Current solutions aren't up to scratch.

      Design space doesn't need the arsenal of photo editing tools like photoshop but as you said, smart objects sounds like a nice solution.

      How does design space work with vector images? That is a perk of sketch and I'm just wondering how design space would work with vector graphics which are integral in my opinion for responsive design.
