    You will need to do tests on your components if you have a design system as you refactor. It's powerful enough to handle most things.

    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.

    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.

    Hi Dan,

    I have a specific question that pertains to how you would approach this problem in a small org. How would you maintain a design system as a team of 1-2 designers with 15 engineers that are remote in a different time zone?

    The move from Photoshop to Sketch was disruptive from a product and price standpoint, the move from Sketch to Figma is iterative.

    No hate on either one, they both have their place.

    Are you talking about inline editing? I've noticed inline editing is really slow, but the editing from the control panel is fine.

    I use the iPad for mocking up ideas before I touch the computer. Vectornator makes it easy to do graphics or UI design as well.
