  1. Alias, Size, and Custom Tokens available in XD

    It would be great to have the Alias, Size, and Custom Tokens available in XD for when I'm designing. Currently my color tokens only show the global versions, and I can't add additional swatches if they share a hex value. We don't want developers using global tokens if an alias or component token exists, so it would be great to have these available to me as I design.

  2. Add colors directly to asset panel

    Colors. Why can't I add them straight up? I know all the colours i need to use? Why can't i just create them? Why do i need put something on an art board first? I am doing something wrong?

    The asset management is strange. Figma does it better. Copy them.

  3. Renaming component's default state

    Components can be very different from one another and the initial state can mean different contexts to the user.

    Let us be able to rename the component's default state, so it can make more sense during the component building process.

  4. Change color on artboard

    Today we are able to save a color than change it on all artboards.

    I think it would be interesting to have a function similar to illustrator but only for one artboard or more (if selection is possible). If it is possible to select the change on background and/or border, that would be awesome too.

    An example, I design a web site or an app and I want to create a dark template only for one artboard for demonstration. So I duplication my first artboard and change the color. With this functionality, we could gain time and be able to…

  5. Keyboard shortcuts for changing component states.

    With a component selected, a keyboard shortcut to cycle through its possible states would save a lot of mousing between artboards and the LHS panel. This is particularly true for screens with multiple components. If they could all be selected and reset to default and cycled through their states, this would be a helpful addition

  6. Variable / no padding on one of the sides

    The padding tool is great, but for some cases, it would be great to have a possibility to leave it undefined. Example: I have a component that has a background and a text in it. I want to use it in a way that the background will take all the available space on the right of the text, regardless of the length of the text inside. Now I will not be able to do it otherwise than manually adjust the padding for each instance of this component.

  7. Pasting object into stack group should align it with the rest of the stack instead of its original location.

    As an Adobe Xd user that uses many artboards & different stack groups, I would like for pasted items to align with the rest of the stack group when adding more objects instead of pasting in the exact same coordinates that it's pasted from.

    See video attached for example:
    1. I copy an object that I want in a different stack (this can be any object on any artboard)
    2. I double-click into the stack group to paste the new object.
    3. Paste the object
    4. The resulting object is pasted at the exact coordinates that it was copied from…

  8. Sort components in assets panel alphabetically

    It would be beneficial for us to sort the Components list by name (Alphabetically). Reason being, when we attach the Cloud doc to a new project file, components seem to be in a random order. If we could re-sort the list alphabetically on each file, it would make organization of large counts of components much easier.

  9. Add icon category in assets

    Instead of creating components, Icons could have a separate category in assets. This could help organize the project and could be used to generate a separate zip file for download for the developers.

  10. copy appearance of a group and paste into another

    Paste appearance now works for individual items. It would be time saving if I could copy the appearance of a group of objects and paste it into another one with the same objects and different appearance.

  11. Padding Auto

    Would love the feature within "Padding" to add "auto" as a value. This would work well when designing tables that need to keep the same width, but may have different text widths.

    The Padding auto side will automatically adjust to keep the item at its current width.

  12. open multiple libraries concurrently

    Since our team is using multiple shared design libraries, it would be nice to be able to open more than one library when working on a document.

    For instance, I'd like to be able to have both the brand library and the current document assets open at the same time.

    Especially if one could be on a floating palette.

  13. quick access to local document assets in the new library panel

    Asset panel had been always just one click (or shortcut) away. With XD 34, after a click, you need to see what's there, then navigate through the panel if document assets are not there. So there could be more cognitive load and extra steps for users.

    Plus, it was possible to open both cc library (global assets) and asset panel (local assets) at the same time. Now you are forced to switch between local and remote assets when your task need both (or, graphics and components). Working with other design tools gets a little more fiddly because of this.

    Finally,…

  14. Larger hit area on close button for Libraries pop up

    It seems clickable area is set to the exact size of closing icon? Could you make it a bit bigger?

  15. Replace all occurences of one component with another

    I occasionally come up against a situation where I have created two components that I realize should have been a single component.

    When this happens I must repeatedly highlight the redundant component on the canvas and manually replace the component.

    It would be great to have a way of simply replacing all occurrences of the redundant component.

    In an ideal world, this function would be a smart replace where object attributes from the replaced component instances were applied to an object in the new component instance where its name and type matched.

  16. make local should also make the component the main component

    Having copied a component from a different document and made it local, I think it would be more logical if the component was also tagged as the main component instead of just an instance.

    This was the behaviour that I naturally assumed was taking place when I first did this because whenever I create a component in other circumstances the selected object is the main component.

    When you implement the duplicate component functionality I would also argue for the duplicate component to be tagged as a main component.

  17. "Reset to Main State" all the instances of one component present in the document in one click

    Have the possibility to "Reset to Main State" all the instances of one component present in the document in one click.

    I'm working on a file with 60+ artboards, with lots of components and subcomponents. Sometimes the instances of my components don't update automatically when I edit the main state, so I have to do it manually for each one of them.

  18. Option to completely remove fractional values

    Give an option to enable & disable or remove decimal points in x,y & degrees & components.

    Why don't we remove points as all users use only whole numbers (30px/30deg/30 x, 30y) and not (30.736px/30.37deg/30.48 x, 30.74y)

    As far as I have worked with teams & users in the industry we only use whole numbers as decimals create issues with development and QA.

  19. Define maximum/minimum element height/width when padding is on

    When padding is on and you move some elements, the width/height of the grou changes. It's a problem when you want to for example have specific width of the element (i.e. background shoud be 1920px wide or button should be 48px in height, when you turn on padding and change font size your button is not 48px anymore).
