    $100 a year (which you could even stretch by a few months if you don't always need the latest update) is too much for a professional design tool?

      …and Figma does cost more for anything above 2 editors.

      Not that I'm against Figma in any way, they've done some great stuff, and definitely have advantages over Sketch.

      IMHO it'd really be great if our discussions could evolve beyond the "who did what first" partisan level, the increased competition in design tools is great for all of us, right?

      As for using Figma, am I the only one who finds their UI a bit uncomfortable, and not as efficient as you might expect? Esp. coming from "native to the web" POV, e.g. super surprised they still don't offer decent text/object/layer search. Hopefully coming.

      Sketch are definitely behind in collab so it's nice to hear they're working on that, and native Paddy and "stacks" are definitely needed ASAP.
