    I think it is very obvious that Framer intends to solve the ALL IN ONE TOOL problem. Which is consistent with them saying this is a BOLD move. Move over Sketch, Figma, XD, Invision etc.. Framer isn't here to play buddies or share screen time. I think what they put out this morning has set the bar even higher.

    Well done.

    Something I experienced 100 fold while using Sketch... hoping Figma will actually dedicate to solve this problem. To clarify "large files" is in reference to UI Kits.

    I understand your concern on whether to commit to one or the other. Right now I am balancing both, because I am not sure which one yet. Test their capabilities for different projects, and see what works best. Nothing wrong with that! :)

    Hey Gareth! I totally agree with you on why Adobe felt the need to ship XD on windows with such poor support. That is absolutely pointless. Having used XD solely on Mac, I can tell you that it is quite awesome.

    In regards to my 'harsh' comment, I believe the reason the industry is giving Sketch such a bad rap is because of ALL the bugs and problems that people are facing.

    FOR ME personally service was terrible, and I hated having to install 20 plugins and using 3 different services outside of Sketch to get one job done.

    Sketch most defiantly is not bad, in fact it is quite good. It helped me get started, but from the get go I knew I wasn't going to stick around.

    Right now, it seems toggling Figma and Sketch together is working great for you. That's what's most important anyway. :)

    FOR ME, there is no argument. FOR ME currently I'm working with Figma and XD. Sketch just didn't do it for ME.

    That's just my personal feeling. For me it was a great foundational step into UI design, and not much more. Lags, updates are terrible, service is unreliable, and it is just too dang slow. FOR ME. If it works for YOU, thats fantastic. :)

    Most of what you point out was probably true upon early release, but from my limited use of XD, it's blown me away.

    I am also falling in love with Figma too.

    If I am being honest, Sketch is on it's last leg. In 2 years, either (if not both for different reasons) Figma and XD will reign 100% of UI design.

    Having Figma compatible with Sketch is an initial plus to get users over on their platform.

    As a freelancer or individual designer I really don't see the collaboration being a plus (because of course not.)

    With Figma the idea of it being in the cloud/browser is what appeals to me most. Eventually being able to go mobile.

    With XD, to me, it's clean, relevant, and like you said a nice refresh from using other CC apps.

    I like many, am stuck in a limbo. Just curious on others opinions.

    Thanks for yours Jon.

    You think so? Why?
