  1. Label assets

    I love the recent addition of the Colors, Character styles and Symbols in the Assets panel.

    I think it would be an improvement to be able to label the assets. Especially the Character styles. When having a lot of them it would be easier to find the right style by naming them.

    For example:

    Sub-header Android
    Roboto
    Medium - 14pt

    Sub-header iOS
    SF UI Text
    Regular - 13pt

    • Artboard names *should not* change to an ellipsis when zoomed out

      Since the August 22 release, when zoomed out far enough, artboard names go away and you just see an ellipsis (...). While the artboard names were previously difficult to read (in some cases, text over text), there has to be a better way than removing them completely. Access to the artboard name is important.

      • Reorder assets within the Asset Panel

        Manually drag-n-drop to sort assets in the Assets window

        Problem:
        Assets in the Asset window are not always sorted per expectation.
        Example-1: If during a project I create a tint of a certain color, I may want to place that swatch next to its parent color.
        Example-2: I need to sort my color assets in accordance with our style-guide and have the primary prior to my secondary colors.

        Solution:
        Be able to drag-n-drop assets in the Asset window to sort them manually.

        • Ability to move/organise symbols in the library

          Sometimes I have had to redo a symbol, and when I add it to the library it's miles away from the other symbols of its kind.

          It would be useful to be able to rearrange symbols manually and/or in categories and/or being able to group them for easy finding when you have hundreds!

          • Nested Symbol Overrides: swap inner symbol in different copies of outer symbol

            So I started playing with Symbols Override for the June Update, but I feel this feature is still a little limited to what we can do.

            Like I want to create a master nav bar with active and default states. But the override doesn't allow me to have that flexibility.

            Same thing applies to a tab bar for iOS apps.

            Right now I feels this Symbols Override feature only works for Buttons when you want to keep the same button styling but have different text. Or maybe cards with bitmap images, but not in a repeated grid list view format.

            • Fit Textbox to Text

              I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

              This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

                • Save symbols to be used across multiple projects

                  Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

                  • Find Missing Font

                    When you open a document and it says a font is missing, but tracking down that missing font can be a nightmare.

                    Often this can occur when moving from one system to another (home to work for example), so doing a find and replace would be very helpful, but just finding the "issue" would be invaluable, because sometimes a type box may not be readily visible to even find it to correct.

                    • Gradients: color stops at the extremes are difficult to select

                      Color stops fixed at the extremes are not easily selectable. They seem to be under the bars. Could they be over each bar?

                      • Display RGBA in the color picker

                        Please add RGBA values to the HEX and HSBA values shown. Most of my CSS color values are now stated in RGBA values (255,255,255,0.5) rather than simple HEX as layouts become more modern and complicated.

                        • Preserve corner radius when resizing

                          If I'm drawing a rectangle and setting a corner radius of X, and need to resize that rectangle's width, I'd like to just be able to push one side without having the other side's corner radius "squashing" up.

                          Currently it's possible to do so by editing vector points and just selecting the left or right-side point group, but it wastes a bit of time. Thanks :)

                            • Finding Symbols in the Symbol Library

                              As a designer (working in a complex document) when I select an item on an artboard, if it happens to be a symbol (if Symbol Library panel is open), I would like the corresponding symbol in the Symbol Library to be highlighted. This will help me to locate it so I can name or delete it from the library. Then, if I selected every artboard on a document it would highlight all of the used symbols in the Symbol Library. This would help me to identify any unused symbols - for deletion/cleanup.

                              • Find Font (globally replace one font with another)

                                Include a "find font" panel like in Adobe Illustrator to globally replace one font with another. Even with the symbol/assets panel this is hard for documents that you did not architect and may require a lot of extra work (i.e. the iOS UI kits in a windows environment where San Francisco font has to be downloaded from third party sources and converted manually to .ttf)

                                • Swap/override SVGs (like images)

                                  [Mac] Unintentional masking problem with SVGs when replacing via drag

                                  Tried to find this in the forums, so I hope I'm not posting about a known issue!

                                  I have an icon (SVG) in one of my layouts. I've duplicated my artboard several times. With regular images (like PNGs), I can just drag a new image onto the one I want to replace or swap out. Works fine. But if I use SVGs, dragging the new SVG icon onto an existing one creates a mask group...?

                                    Yes, it makes sense! Once we import SVG, we essentially treat it like any other object. It sounds like you want to ensure that your SVGs retain some “image” properties and be able to swap them the way you can already swap images. I’ll keep this one as open for now! Thanks for getting back to us. :)

                                    System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
                                    XD-Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta

                                    We are working with different people on the same .xd file. Updating the prototype link is only possible on the machine with wich the .xd file was created. The other people can only create new links.

                                    1. Create an .xd file
                                    2. Publish prototype
                                    2. Save the .xd file
                                    3. Open the same .xd file on another machine
                                    4. Updating the published prototype link not possible (only creation of new link)

                                      Hello,

                                      Sorry for the confusion. This behavior in XD is intentional. Only the user who created a prototype link is able to update that link. The thinking is that the owner for the link may not want others making changes.

                                      At the moment, the only way for multiple people to update a prototype at the same URL is to be logged in with the same Creative Cloud account. We are however discussing adding the ability to specify more than one owner for a prototype – and we could then allow all owners to update the prototype link. It sounds like this is what you were expecting and the behavior you would like to see, is that correct?

                                    • Make "None" the default transition, not "Dissolve"

                                      I would really like the default transition for wires to be "None," not "Dissolve." I have almost never seen a real website or app or desktop software do page transitions with a dissolve transition, so I don't understand why it's the default transition. I have to change the transition from "Dissolve" to "None" every time I create a new project. I could be the only user who wants this, but I wanted to make this request.

                                      • Workaround for annotations in design and preview mode

                                        While we're waiting on Xd to add a feature for annotations / documentation / callouts / etc., I have come up with a very useful workaround. This workaround lets you add a notes panel next to each artboard that can be easily moved with the artboard, scaled to accommodate longer scrolling pages, and can be easily shown or hidden when running in preview mode.

                                        This attached document includes lots of detail on how to use the workaround yourself, as well as plenty of feedback for the Xd team on what I'd like to see in the annotations feature once they…

                                        • Export as a Working Website

                                          As a graphic designer I love to design websites, but I hate coding. This feature would be to export the website as a real website. Choose to export as a Wordpress theme, Squarespace theme, html website, etc. This feature has the chance to change the world of design forever. This would make designing websites so much more enjoyable. Maybe even this could be an add on feature to go with adobe xd for extra money or something.
