Is Craft Sync becoming more trouble than it is worth for you too?

Don't get me wrong, when Craft Sync all goes smoothly syncing a large complex proto with many screens is a time saver..........But it all falls apart when you pick up a file you didn't create. Syncing can't move between Sketch and PS. :-(

Lets say UX-er 'A' creates a full working Sketch Ruby demo and it is approved, all ok so far... Then say Designer 'B' picks up that sketch ruby wireframe demo to style the elements and then is unable to open the file because we are not allowed to run sketch in-house instead the designer has to resort to trying to manage and update hotspots in that template via differing software, say PS CC17 with craft sync. Do not try this. This can be a nightmare. I am finding the old flow of exporting screens as PNGs and dragging em in is way more robust to share wireframes and that I would recommend to the community to never jump out of one software to the other with craft sync.  

Also it is such a shame that the constant craft plugin updates often break the complex syncing too. I hope Invision team understand firewalls inside companies are only going to increase security and the limitations on syncing via craft smoothly even if ports are unblocked by your IT dept.

Hi André,

I want you to know that we hear you 100% and we understand your frustration. I have already brought this up to our Product Manager, and will be raising in my Product Meeting with the team tomorrow.

I want to make sure I first understand fully the issues you are facing. The way I understand it, you are looking for the ability to be able to edit a single Prototype using both Sketch and Photoshop, correct? If this is not what you are looking to do, can you please elaborate on your particular use case?

We understand that constant updates can be a pain, and we do our best to minimize this frustration for our customers. However, we want to assure you that other than the updates we have had to make over the past two weeks, it is not common that InVision requires regular updates.

In regards to your last point regarding firewalls, we'd love to hear more about what complications you are currently running into. We want to make sure InVision runs as smoothly as possible for all of our customers.

Look forward to hearing back and helping out!
