  1. Requesting: Screen mode

    Indesign has several screen modes for design. This feature should be brought to XD. It would be nice to see margins and preview mode with the "w" shortcut.

  3. Design ideation is important. Pen on paper is one way, white boarding is another. With many of us still working from home, a whiteboard tab or new section would be essential.

    I really loved the InVision Studio whiteboard and mood board. Those are features I would love to see in XD. Being able to share the whiteboard and mood afterwards or in real time would be great as well.

  4. Can we please have it available where its possible to have one area scroll vertically and horizontally for web, scroll groups look weird on web. Because I would like for the rectangle or the area it to have its own scroll bar. Scroll groups only make sense for mobile, not web, its kind of limiting.

  5. Have the ability to create simple gifs rather than leaving XD to make simple gifs in PSD or AE.

  6. Please allow to use different 3d Transformations between the States so you can use 3d Transform as a hover effect or something else.

    Currently the 3D Transform Options adapt to all States when you change it on the component.

  7. It would be if we could convert a shape from like say an ellipse to a square just as in illustrator, so as to not waste time to recreate icons if I want to change from circular icons to square. As previously stated for software that was made to save time it sure does waste a lot, especially, when it comes to the fact that things like this are standard/were thought out already in other adobe software & could have easily been implemented.

  8. ◆ Overview
    After releasing "State" feature, it's been able to prepare complex interactions like "hover." Following feature may help to reduce required time preparing a new component with similar behaviors/instructions.

    ◆ Actual
    New component with state settings every time when a similar behavior is expected in different look and feel.
    (Currently, preparing another XD file is believed to be the only solution to avoid this by selecting "Make it as local component" after loading it from another XD file.")

    ◆ Expected
    By select "Use it as a new Master Component" is to make a new Master component instead of copying…

  9. Shape/component fill container (stack).
    Example:

    Let's say I have a horizontal stack with two squares and 20px margin between them. It would be really helpful if I could set one or both squares to fill the stack (container). This way If I want to resize the stack as a whole the two squares would automatically resize.

    This does wonders for responsive layouts.
    Figma has this feature already and it works great.

    Love what you are doing with XD, I've been using it since day 1 and this is he only thing that's missing for me.

    Keep up the great work…

  10. I work on a path planning project.
    User must preview the path.

    I NEED to produce several iterations of the same path animation, with different colors or informations.
    XD will allow me to implement the path representations in the app, without reproducing the user journey in After Effects : It becomes "real"
    Then I can test each version of the path, very easily, and get precious feedbacks

    After Effect is the tool => export a transparent video
    because AFAIK it doesn't export transparent gif

    Back into XD, my app structure (background, menus, etc) remains unchanged, and we can test every…

  11. A busy design session may result in "orphan" Character Styles which are not named or do not conform with the standards. For example, I want all body copy to be 14pt but a few instances were wrongly created at 13pt. Currently, I click one instance of the 13pt, then "Add Character Style to Assets". I can then use the "Highlight on Canvas" feature to SHOW ever instance. But I cannot apply the 14pt style to them because they are not SELECTED. If "Select on Canvas" were an option, I could apply the correct 14pt style to all of the 13pt…

  12. create a keyboard shortcut for 'add state' please. or better, a suite of keyboard shortcuts affiliated with adding all the different type of states to a component.

    When working through a suite of icons, for example, this is a very tedious process to have to manually repeat 2 states per icon using the mouse to hover over and click every time.

  13. When creating a Shape (square, circle triangle, line) the 90% of the times I already know the size I need, but is very slow first to draw it and the input the w and h on the panel on the right. It would be nice to create it like in Illustrator. (The X and Y would be nice too but im not that greedy)

  14. 高速スクロール機能が欲しいです。

    XDでのデザインは縦に長くなることが多いので作業を効率化するために高速スクロール機能が必要だと思います。
    Illustratorではshift+マウスホイールで縦に高速スクロールするので同じ機能がXDこそ必要だと思います。

    • Auto translation: - Designs in XD are often vertically long, so I think you need a high-speed scrolling function to make your work more efficient. In Illustrator, shift + mouse wheel scrolls vertically at high speed, so I think that XD needs the same function.

    ご説明ありがとうございます! デザインプロセスではなくプレビューに焦点を合わせるように機能リクエストを調整しました。


    このメッセージは機械翻訳されています。


    Thank you for your clarification! I've adjusted the feature request to focus on preview instead of during the design process.

  15. What I ask is very simple: add an horizontal scroll bar to the layers panel, so I can scroll it without the need to resize and making my prototype working area even smaller than it already is. This is a very common aproach to IDEs on the folders panel, despite allowing resizing, they always have an horizontal scroll bar to help navigation on deep levels or small monitors.

    This feature would be very appreciated for people with deep components hierarchy levels or smaller monitors.

  16. In Windows, it works that when you hold shift + (control or alt) + scrollwheel it does a jump/faster zoom. Unfortunately on macOS when you press SHIFT nothing happens.. This feature works in other Adobe programs as well as macOS. I'm pretty annoyed and don't know how to work around it to make it work the same way. Thanks for the update.

  17. My request is two fold but both relate to shadows.

    In brief

    Include shadow properties that related fully to CSS
    Include the ability to save named shadow profiles for reuse


    Details

    Include a crucial forth property to drop shadows that is actually part of the CSS spec and will enable designers to more accurately communicate their specifications to developer – include SHADOW SPREAD.

    Example declaration in CSS;

    box-shadow: [x-offset] [y-offset] [blur] [spread]

    Additionally, please include the ability to save drop shadow profiles so they can be updated easily and will be applied to all relevant designs. It is time consuming…

    Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best when you only have a single request per ticket, so I’m going to repurpose this specific ticket for the drop shadow spread. Please do feel free to file your second idea as a new ticket. Thanks!

  18. It would be great if you could not only select multiple layers by clicking the element on the canvas, but if you could select them by using the layer panel. Thus you could change the blend mode of all pictures at once for example or rename all selected layers at once etc. Would make working on a big project so much more convenient.

  19. Allow padding to work even if the background is a component. Currently, there's no easy way to have a component "shrinkwrap" around it's content, as you would commonly want with a card or panel.

    Put another way, the limitations on https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/set-fixed-padding-for-components-groups.html# specifically state: "Components ... cannot act as a background for a group or component." Please remove this limitation!

  20. We need to have a way to leave comments on specific objects or artboards in files with coediting enabled. Should be able to tag other people, assign the comment, and resolve when completed. Bonus points if you can integrate with, like, asana or trello or whatever.
