Sketch 60 is out with a new Components Panel(sketch.com)

    UXPin shows the grid view for components that people seem to like, and it requires a lot of scrolling. They solved that problem with a smart search feature and a truncated view. Just by the looks of it, Sketch has its own solution which is good too. I bet both of design teams came to similar conclusions.

      I haven't had much experience with UXPin but I'd be interested in seeing their solution. Although Julian is referencing XD not UXPin. Sketch also has search and filtering in place as well.

      I think it's a decent solution that still gives us the screen real estate that we need but also gives us better usability in interacting with components. I'm sure there could be a few tweaks to improve it, but with only 10 minutes of playing with the new update it makes sense to me. I'm not sure the point Julian is making that XD is superior when it comes to specific area. Probably just personal preference to the design and visual look of it is my guess. Which I might agree with for the most part.

        Yeah I agree with you here. I mentioned UXPin because its used a similar approach to how XD is showing components, but has been tested with users for a longer time.

        XD can be seen as superior maybe on an initial feeling of being new but once you extend the use cases to hundreds of components, it could be different.
