    I get you Mark. But i also see the fast technological change thats forced by a lot of companies forwards to AR, VR, Voice Recognition an so on. So i understand that Adobe is pushing into that segment. It might be business wise a logical move. The downside is that we as designer get tools with features that we don't use.

    It is nothing new that Adobe will decide whats best for Adobe and not whats best for the user.

    I used a lot of Adobe products in the last 20 years, just only using After Effects and Photoshop till this day. Ditched Illustrator 1 year ago since they broke it heavily.

      They can chase AR, VR, chatbots and voice interactions if they want. If that comes at the expense of other features, it may mean the app is not of any professional use to me. I feel like that’s where we are now.

      Oh, it’s entirely their choice. I am just voicing my opinion, with the hope it’ll help steer the product in a better direction.

      Mike did say “we’d love to hear what you think about this update”. My frustration is that the product is now years old, and the missing features would only be excusable during a beta. Is XD supposed to be for professional production work? If it is, it’s falling very short right now.

        Hi Mark, Yes, I and the rest of the team want your feedback and we are definitely listening. The good news is resizing a single symbol is in development as we speak.
