    I hope you understand the skepticism Andrew given Adobe's track record with other programs. The XD team hasn't done a great job of being transparent either - they did try to engage the community but when a lot of our requests go ignored with no explanation, people loose faith.

    I think the attitude towards XD would be way more positive if you took the time to explain why certain things are not getting done (like underline, which last I checked had 700 votes making it one of the most requested features), instead of writing every article to brag about how amazing and perfect XD is.

      Skepticism understood. Fair comments on continuing to improve transparency and explaining what we're doing/not doing, etc. Will take that on board.

      Thanks, Andrew (Adobe).

      I disagree wholeheartedly that the XD team ignores requests. Much of why I'm such a proponent of XD is their community involvement. I tried Sketch for awhile and was unable to get any response on a simple bug that has persisted for years. The XD team, on the other hand, is extremely active on social media. They even host a weekly Facebook livestream in which they present what's new and field questions. I'm as frustrated as the next guy that we still don't have a few basic features like text underlining and guides, but to say that they ignore their users is entirely inaccurate.
