    Thank you guys for the hard word. However, I have some thoughts/questions about my first use of the app:

    • Where is the layers panel?
    • Why there is no right-click on an object, to reorder it (send forward) for example, or to delete it?
    • I can't add multiple strokes.
    • There is no gradients.
    • I can't import.
    • My client want me to export the designs, not the assets.. How can I do that?
    • How to control the border radius of one angle, not the whole rectangle?
    • The colors selecting process is confusing. Why not having one like Sketch, or Photoshop?
    • How to add multiple shadows?
    • Is there a way to make reusable symbols?
    • Why I can't make the text element fixed? I've a paragraph and I need to control the width of it.

      Hello Ahmad, thanks for your kinds words.

      Answering your questions:

      1. Layers are coming soon. We have spent months investigating the challenge and I hope you like our solution, it's pretty special;

      2. Right click (context menu) is landing soon, for now just with Copy/Paste/Delete but more items will be added and released with our monthly releases;

      3. Multiple borders (strokes), fills and shadows are in the backlog;

      4. Gradients are coming soon, as well as a new color picker. For now, you can do gradients in Illustrator, copy and paste to Adobe XD;

      5. What are you trying to import that is not working?

      6. You can export all artboards if you don't select anything and go to File > Export. If you want to export specific artboards, select them by clicking on their titles (holding SHIFT to select more than one), then go to File > Export;

      7. You can adjust specific corners by pressing OPTION as you change it;

      8. We have a new color picker in the works. The one that is there now is the native Mac one;

      9. "Multiple shadows" is in the backlog;

      10. "Symbols and reusable items" is in the backlog;

      11. To have your text as a resizable item, please select the Text Tool and click+drag to design your Area Text. Then you can resize it later;

      Hope it answers your questions.

      Feel free to send your feature requests to UserVoice.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.
