    Agree! Surprisingly, XD provides a smoother and snappier experience comparing to Sketch/Figma. I'm not sure if it really works quicker or if it's just my subjective feeling, but I did a couple of projects in XD, working in Sketch in parallel, and it made me believe that XD is a more refined and robust product performance-wise. At the same time, XD is still missing a lot of tiny, simple and (I thought) obvious features. It neutralizes any performance gain that I may have from the app speed.

      Max,

      If you dont mind, what are some of the tiny / simple features you miss? We are working hard to take care of these.

        Hello Mike! For me it's little things like more options for text editing (All caps for exemple) , being able to flip an object, or having some blending option like in Photoshop or Sketch. Maybe some more vector editing option (Combine, substract two forms).

        It's getting there for me, and I find XD more and more pleasant to use, it's just missing those little quality of life things.

          I figured out how to flip an object!!! It's cumbersome and terrible and it should be a built in feature that handles this but you can do it!

          Select the object. Grab a corner handle while holding shift, shrink the object to a H and W of 0x0 by dragging the handle to the other drag handle diagonally adjacent to it. BUT DON'T STOP THERE...Keep going! (into negative values) That should give you a vertical flip. Now play with dragging the side handle into negative values and that should give you a horizontal flip

          You're welcome :)

            Oh yeah, thanks for the tip Alex! It works for vector based objects and text but not for pixel images unfortunately. It would be nice to have this feature in the contextual menu indeed.
