    How is this different from drawing features in Sketch/Figma/Adobe XD?

      I think they provided these features for users who don't want to move between different apps when designing their user interfaces.

        There is nothing wrong with jumping between apps, which are dedicated to certain things, really.

          I agree, it's whatever you prefer. Apps are good for what they're specialised in, but problems do exist and probably some of the reason so many companies provide parallel features already present in other software. Working in between apps can pose problems like, syncing changes between designs, interruption to creative flow, difficulties collaborating across teams.

          Another part of it will be acquisition, for customers that don't have certain software they can provide feature parody allowing them to attract more customers.

        But if you want to do vector editing in Sketch/Figma/Adobe XD...you don't have to switch apps. That's my point. Current design tools already offer these features. Framer is presenting it as something new when it's not.

          If you like using Framer and you want to design your icons and design your prototypes, you can't do both in Framer presently . Framer's not necessarily saying its original, they're just touting that you can now do vector editing in Framer.
