  1. Text formatting

    Where are the text formatting tools present on Photoshop and illustrator ?
    - underline
    - all in capital
    - small capital
    - superior/exponent
    - inferior/sign
    - barred

    Even making a copy / paste formatting of the text isn't preserved.

    Waiting for an answer from Adobe XD Team

    Best regards

    • 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

      • Return the Fill eyedropper to its previous location and add a keyboard shortcut

        I rely heavily on the color picker, and it is now two clicks away instead of one. Furthermore, there's no keyboard shortcut for it. Returning the color picker to its previous collection and/or adding a keyboard shortcut will save me a lot of time in the long run.

        This is a crosspost of "Color picker now 2 clicks away" under the Bugs section: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/32248015-color-picker-now-2-clicks-away

        • Name Character Styles

          It would help a great deal if Character Styles can be named. Right now it is tough managing them and knowing which is which.

          • 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.

            • Fluid Symbols

              I want symbols to be more fluid. Currently I can't resize a symbol after applying it. Sometimes I want the same symbol applied at various sizes. Currently I cannot do that, I'm forced to make a new symbol for every size scenario.

              • Showing Layers AND Assets at the Same Time

                I can't believe this suggestion doesn't already exist, but I work on a 32" or a 27" monitor all the time. I have plenty of screen real estate. Why not let me view both Assets and Layers panels at the same time?

                • Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

                  Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

                  At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

                  Thanks!

                  Best regards,
                  Guy

                  • Improved text underline

                    Thanks for adding underline text to the latest release of XD. I really appreciate the fact that you're still adding features like this. I've had a bit of a play with the underline text tool and have a few refinements that would make it more powerful.

                    1) Allow for custom line weight. Currently the line is just the same weight, no matter the font weight

                    2) Allow for custom offset to baseline

                    3) Allow for variable colour.

                    See my mockup attached for further clarification.

                    • New Guide Layout

                      There needs to be a "New Guide Layout" feature, same as in Photoshop, so that the user can create a baseline grid. See screenshot attached.

                      This is VERY important.

                      Grids, guides, and baseline grids, need be implemented.

                      Thank you!

                      • 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

                        • Data grid/table component with core functionality

                          A data table component with headers, columns of varying widths, alternating row colors, add/delete rows, add/delete columns - very standard stuff! See Axure, PowerPoint, Confluence, etc. etc. Should be able to paste data from an Excel worksheet. An enterprise designer like me, who deals with data-rich UIs, must have this before I can consider adopting XD as my standard tool.

                          Seems so obvious! But I haven't found this in other suggestions, most others focus on one aspect of a table instead of core table properties. I'd love to hear I'm just missing it somehow...

                          • 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)

                            • Illustrator support for CC libraries

                              Seems like we're missing CC Library support for Illustrator assets. I'm sure you're on it but didn't find another comment on it. I can imagine you were under the gun to show off more library integration for MAX but vector symbols are really where it's going to be at for our team's needs. (That and JPG exporting, but that's been covered).

                              • 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!

                                • Interactive Prototyping

                                  You probably wonder why the title says Interactive Prototyping and then I put it under 01: Design mode. You'll see why.

                                  I think Adobe XD should add the ability to design other elements in your design apart from the missing option to even add video's to you designs I think Adobe should make it so you can customize the whole video player (or music play, or whatever).

                                  Let me explain. You have a blank space where you can put the video. Then you can add a timeline to scrub to the video and customize it to your likes, then you…

                                  • Definable Constraints

                                    Hi guys,

                                    It would be really useful to be able to define Constraints - that is to say, for example, a piece of text is centred within an object, or 30 pixel right & down from a corner. Then, if I were to resize the object to which it is constrained this relationship would be maintained thus allowing easier responsive design by building a hierarchy of relationships between objects and artboards.

                                    Thanks

                                    • 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.

                                      • Place linked images (like InDesign or Illustrator)

                                        I would like the option to place an image as a link to an external file, which would allow one to make changes to the image in photoshop and have the link in XD update to reflect the latest status of the file.
                                        This would also allow for the actual xd file to be lighter, as the image info can be kept externally to the file itself.
