    I go back and forth between Sketch and XD. I actually switched fully to an XD environment from Photoshop for work and it has been fantastic. With XD's newest feature upgrades, it's just been improving at a solid, solid clip.

    Sketch is still great, but the UI bugs really get to me, a strange zoom lag here, some weird masking issues, etc. I don't think Sketch is going away any time soon though. It's the contender still bringing a better user interface and more flexible plugin options.

    As for Figma, the SAAS model throws me off. It's similar to Framer. It's easier to do a corporate buy of Adobe, since we already use all their other apps. How do we convince a company to also buy in to Figma or Framer for workflows and get licenses for dozens of designers + auxiliary workers?

      Sketch 52 made all my panning/zooming lags go away. Much snappier. When did you jump ship?

        I updated to Sketch 52, and admittedly, I have not worked with it extensively on a heavy project. I'll do that next and see if the performance issues with scrolling and panning have been resolved. Thanks for the heads up.
