    Figma is disruptive with price and features. Instead of buying Sketch+Invision+Zeplin+Version Control, it's all in one tool. It works on Windows, Chromebooks, and Mac. Real-time collaboration means faster and easier meetings with fewer headaches. Designs are updated in real-time without uploading and generating a new link. "Fire alarm" designs with a team happen so much faster because we can split the design and see what everybody is working on.

    People must have forgotten that early Sketch adopters were loud and annoying too. If they kept to themselves, we'd all still be on Photoshop/Illustrator because everybody thought it was good enough at the time.

    No, but it's easy to make it an image checkbox.

    The reality is you need to adapt in a fast-moving tech world. People forgot early adopters of Sketch were loud when the majority of designers were still on Photoshop/AI. I'm loving this competition because it makes all of our products better.

    This also happened when Sketch came out and everybody was still on PS/AI. There's a lot of hype and for good reason. Sketch has become complacent and is now behind.

    Figma is the real Sketch killer. Plugins are coming soon and it's one less feature Sketch has over Figma.

    I think the advantage that XD and Figma have over Sketch is that they're an all-in-one tool. You'll never want to go back to using Sketch+Invision+Zeplin after using one tool. The process to upload your designs feels slow.

    Copy and paste from web browser into sketch. It skips downloading.

    Yeah, I don't understand the product direction by the XD team. The 99% of users just want feature parity with Sketch/Figma. Why are they adding a feature for game designers? Just focus on the fundamentals and you'll get more users because of the Adobe family. We just moved away from XD to Figma because their design system support is much more mature.
