    I second the rollover effect on the h2 tags. It was confusing and made me think they were hyperlinks... (which they are not)

    I'm 36. Been an in-house designer for 13 years. I'm good. No push to go into management. I am better served as a Senior UI designer, building our design system, and mentoring people. And unless I leave my company (or change the culture here) there is no design management where I work so I couldn't go any higher if I wanted unless I wanted to leave design entirely.

    Is this a free upgrade from the last version?

    I wish that when you tapped on the search field that it brought up the search screen in a card UI similar to Apple maps....It's way more intuitive that you can swipe it down to dismiss it. Their solution to the poor UX is to onboard the user about how to do it. (by telling them on the screen) The problem with that is the user (depending how skilled they are) might easily forget.

    Well, doesn't change the fact that it's still free.

    Sketch isn't multiplatform. Not all designers have Macs. Sketch is a non-starter for many people that don't have Macs.

    Photoshop has a completely different workflow that isn't focused on UI design at all. And I dunno about you, but once you get a ton of artboards with tons of elements, the file slows down dramatically. Launch times are painfully slow, and quickly zooming and panning can be excruciating.

    XD has its perks. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they aren't there.

    But the reason why we have 100's of tools on the market is because everyone's needs are different. XD is a great tool that works for a ton of people and in many areas is better than PS and Sketch. Especially when it comes to specs, collaboration, dev handoff, performance, and prototyping.

    That thing did not work well for XD documents....Maybe I'll try it again in a year...But keep developing it! I think it's a great tool in general!

    I figured out how to flip an object!!! It's cumbersome and terrible and it should be a built in feature that handles this but you can do it!

    Select the object. Grab a corner handle while holding shift, shrink the object to a H and W of 0x0 by dragging the handle to the other drag handle diagonally adjacent to it. BUT DON'T STOP THERE...Keep going! (into negative values) That should give you a vertical flip. Now play with dragging the side handle into negative values and that should give you a horizontal flip

    You're welcome :)

  • Posted to My big tool comparison: Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD, UXPin and InVision Studio., Aug 17, 2018

    Comparison was weak and half that chart is out of date....But I guess it's helpful for new people that have never used any of these tools before and are just starting out.
