      • Scrollable Area (not scrolling whole artboard)

        Define a scrollable area within an artboard

        This provides real-world app use cases, such as a table, slideshow, or iOS dropdown lists.

          • Responsive artboards / adaptive layout constraints for resizing

            Similar to Edge Reflow, it would be great to have the ability to prototype responsive design ideas with a fluid, flexible canvas. Web designers need a good tool for this there really isn't anything out there to test out responsive design solutions.

              Hi there,

              We are actively working on adaptive/responsive design features in XD. Stay tuned for more updates, we hope to get it in your hands soon :)

            • Global Style/Color Edits

              Provide the ability to change multiple objects/elements within a document and/or across artboards.

              Example: Ability to increase font size within a button across all artboards (without multi-select)
              This is similar to increasing font size within a repeatable grid—all increase.

              Another example: replace/swap a theme color throughout the document.

                • Carousel / Side-scroll

                  Ability to create and customise content carousels or slideshow type scrollable areas.

                  Currently there is a "scroll" feature in build, but it seems to be about page scroll and up/down scrollable areas.

                  • Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

                    Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

                    • Design with Data

                      I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

                      I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.

                      • Global/Master artboard templates (pin objects across all artboards)

                        1. Ability to have a single object (or group) break out of its artboard and cross multiple artboards within a single prototype. The simplest use case is the creation of a global navigation bar that spans across multiple screens. This object's interactive elements would also work across multiple screens as well, and any edits to this object would update across the rest of the screens.

                        2. Easy interaction management and editing. Also provides consistency with consistent elements within an experience.

                        • Export whole artboards (or entire project) as HTML

                          It would be great to Export Prototypes as pure HTML Projects. I am working a lot on Multiscreen apps, where I mostly use Serveal Webcontainers Running on several Screens, to develop those Applications.

                          • Gestures - swipe, pinch/zoom, force touch

                            In order to full use this as a UX professional, I would have to have the ability to include gestures, most critically for handing a stakeholder a wireframe or design. Gestural swipes, two-finger zoom, force-touch, etc. Otherwise I don't think too many experience UX professionals will be able to properly communicate core functionality and the behavioral imperatives incumbent to the process.

                            • Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)

                              This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.

                                Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

                                In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

                                If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

                                -Elaine

                              • Import Illustrator / AI

                                Import Illustrator file with options to select layers and/or artboards.

                                This would increase ease of use and workflow, so a user is not always switching between apps.

                                  • Scroll to Anchor Link Target

                                    The anchor link that target the specific part of the page. This is the significant user experience on web usability where user can "back to top" or can navigate (i.e. from menu bar) to the specific sessions without the need to scroll through entire pages.

                                    • Scale/resize symbols individually

                                      I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

                                      Please let us scale the symbols

                                      • Linked Objects / Images

                                        Option to link objects (or generate smart objects) when pasted from a PSD or AI source to maintain a reference.

                                        This would provide a simple method for single or multiple object updates (beyond the CC Design Libraries integration)—saving time and ensuring all objects are the most current.

                                        Example: Revision to a microphone icon via Illustrator, which is used across 20 artboards

                                        • Dark Interface (overall UI including side panels)

                                          The option for a darker interface like Photoshop and Illustrator would be great, especially when working at night.
