  1. 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

                Hi there,

                We have begun work on dotted/dashed lines, as well as other stroke enhancements. Stay tuned, and can’t wait to get this feature in your hands.

                Cheers,

              • 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

                • 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.

                  • Image cropping / repositioning within shape mask (after dragging bitmap into a shape)

                    Provide the ability to reposition/move images within masks.

                    If you make a mask via Object > Mask With Shape, then you can double-click into it to reposition the image (or other content) within the mask.

                    However, if you drag an image file onto a shape, it gets masked by the shape and you CANNOT reposition the image or adjust the cropping. It is auto-cropped to fill the shape when you resize it, but you don't currently get full control of the cropping.

                      Hi there,

                      We understand just how frustrating this is when working with images that can’t be repositioned, and have begun to work on this feature. We can’t wait to get it in your hands soon!

                    • 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

                        • Paragraph styles

                          In order to make global typography changes, it would ber very useful to have paragraph styles as part of the feature set. Bonus: export CSS from these paragraphy styles.

                          • Label assets (text/character styles & colors)

                            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

                            -----------------

                            This request is about naming text & color assets.

                            For naming symbols (which are also listed in the assets panel), see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/16933993-label-rename-and-organize-reorder-symbol-library

                            • Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

                              It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

                              • Support math operators in number fields

                                It will be nice I can use that 200/2 = 100 directly in a numbered field just like any other Adobe App. (/ and - and * and +)

                                • 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

                                  • Flip vertical/horizontal

                                    I am trying to create icons in XD and want to make sure they are symetrical but there is no flip option in the edit menu.

                                    I tried to use the width, height and coordinates to do this but without guides, or the ability to unlock the ratio this does not work either

                                    • 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

                                        • Saving color palettes - shared across documents or users

                                          I want to have a consistent set of swatches, with the ability to import saved palettes or to share/export a palettes. It would be nice to have access to multiple palettes as well
