    Setting font size in px still allows zooming in all major browsers. I think this is an outdated view on px for text size.

    Thanks! Great to hear independent symbol resizing is coming.

    I’m all for hugs and being calm. :D

    We do pay for these tools though. I think it’s okay to ask questions, given the money paid.

    Not yet, but of the stuff listed above: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    It’s probably best you don’t ask! :P

    I’m using a bunch of stuff, including Illustrator for glyphs, icon design and any heavy vector lifting, Photoshop for mockups and asset creation (there’s still a few things it does better), Principle and Processing for prototypes, sometimes Affinity Designer for SVG asset creation (it does a solid job), and occasionally Sketch and other tools. I do my best to be across them all, and use whichever is most appropriate for the task. I’ve been hoping to add XD to the mix for some wireframing and prototyping.

    XD was announced Oct 5, 2015. The public preview was released Mar 15, 2016. It was out of beta on Oct 18, 2017. How much time should the community give you for things that are absolutely mandatory features?

    Speech detection has been optimized for accents.

    What are you doing? Why would something like this, and the other January features take a priority over colour management, guides, layer blending modes, symbols being independently resizable, and the litany of basics XD is missing. There’s no polygon or star tool. Every couple of months I come back to XD to give it another try and it usually takes less than 2 minutes before hitting a roadblock, where I decide I can’t use it.

    I honestly do not understand the team’s priorities. I want XD to be good, but XD is definitely not good.

    I don’t know if you’ll really have a choice. At 140PPI, turning off scaling will make the macOS UI and text too big or too small.
