  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

    • 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.

      • 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

        • 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

          • 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?

            • 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!

              • 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!

                • 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

                  • 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.

                    • 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)

                      • Pressing 'V' while focus is in Hex, Width, Height, X, Y, etc should unfocus and change the pointer to 'Select'

                        When changing the color, dimensions, or location of an object I often want to press 'V' to change the cursor to 'Select' and move on. 'V' is not a valid value in any of those fields, so it would be great when I press 'V' it would lose focus on the field, and change the cursor.

                        Instead, I have to remember to hit 'Escape' then 'V'.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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

                                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.

                                • 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.

                                  • Edit symbol definition in isolation mode

                                    Editing a symbol right now requires you to drag it out the symbols panel onto the canvas or edit it right where you use it (both ways require a double click to get into the symbol). This is working and it makes sense.

                                    I think it would be very useful to have a dedicated symbols view (a seperate canvas) with all symbols (automatically) placed on. Ready to be edited without having to double click each. Making work on multiple symbols much easier.

                                    This is not a new or special idea. Sketch does this and it's something I got very used…

                                    • 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).

                                        I guess if you guys provide the option of gif/photo zoom pan/video compatible options would be good with few animation options like flips and so, i felt XD is very good for the people who want to present the client ideas in better way and presentable. this few requests gets live in software would be more good. and one more major requirement is the tab options as each documents opens up in different window. or else should be a option where in a single document only we can present all three platform compatible option like desktop/mobile/tab.

                                        will be waiting for…

                                        • Align to key object or artboard feature

                                          It would be great if we could use the align tools much more in line with Illustrator's current tool. Automatically keying objects to each other is really obtrusive and the moment.
