  1. "Scroll To" anchor inside Scroll Group

    The feature to link buttons that scroll to anchors in artboards is great! I think the next step would be to allow us to "Scroll To" not only objects on the artboard but also objects inside scroll groups that overflow the artboard.

    With this feature we could create internal navigation menus that allow the user to easily explore the content of an overflowing container by jumping from anchor to anchor.

  2. Consistency in click behavior throughout the interface

    It is a source of daily/hourly frustration that clicking on the icon portion of a layer will open it while the only way to open an artboard is to double click the icon (just to mention one). This is only one such inconsistency, but it's very frustrating to have layers expand when I'm only trying to select it as the first of a multiple selection while at the same time, clicking anywhere on an artboard from the list will only select it. In this latter case, one has to both double-click and do so in a small hitbox.

  3. In Built Chatbot

    In built chatbot is something that we all need while working on the shared document. The team member needs to discuss things on designs while working on the document and currently we have to use apps like WhatsApp to touch base on the collaborative document. I think an In built Chatbot would help us communicate better while working on the design in sharing mode. Or you can simply introduce the chatbot plugin for the same.

  4. Change visual state for multiple instances of a component

    When using a component (the same one) in a list it would be great if you could highlight multiple and change their view state

    ex. have a button component with two states (default and hover).
    I use the component to make two buttons (Cancel and Save).
    I first change the text for "Cancel" in Default State then i jump to Hover State and add the same text there.
    I then change the text for the next button to "Save" in Default State then jump to Hover state and add the same text there.
    The two buttons are now in the…

  6. Make Library Elements NOT Duplicate When Used in Other Libraries

    Finally having libraries is nice, but the organization is still difficult to maintain for larger organizations. I have my libraries split out based categories. It seems easier to keep the XD files smaller. I have components, typography, colors, and icons. I plan on breaking out components to be more specific.

    The problem is if I apply a color to a component, or if I apply a color to a text style, then I have multiples of styles / components in the document where I'm using all of these libraries.

    This requires multiple files to be updated anytime a change is…

  7. Merge different components, overriding one of the selected

    Sometimes I start ending up having 2 different components that are doing the same thing, I would like to be able to merge both into one single component, making easier to keep track of all the main components.

  8. selected object's name and type in property inspector

    Could show a breadcrumb, or at least a name and a type of the currently selected object at the top of property inspector? You could always rely on the layer panel to find it out, but there are times when you really want to keep other panels open.

  9. Enable editing of elements that have been selected with 'highlight on canvas' option from the assets panel

    I'm having a situation where I have to replace the colour of multiple instances of objects that are not a component. Currently I'm using a plugin called 'Recolor' and it works great in most occasions, but I just ran into a case where it doesn't work:

    The objects that I'm trying to replace are not with solid colour, but have some opacity and when I use the plugin to replace the colour, it sets the opacity back to 100%.

    The plugin aside, I just thought that when you use the option 'highlight on canvas' you're essentially selecting objects with the…

  11. Relocating master components

    Sometimes you need to reorganize your design system files. Once you have created a master components, you cannot move it to another file, and you are stuck with the current file forever.
    It would be great if you can just move your Master Component from one document to another.

  12. Snap points in scroll groups

    Let the user set points (similar to anchor links in artboards) so the animation snaps in scroll groups.
    The scenario is to prototype app icons in several menu pages situation, so you scroll right and left snapping to each page.

  13. 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.

  15. Once zoomed out, only allow selections of artboards

    It would be reasonable to expect that under 5% zoom one would want to select (only) artboards and not objects.

  16. Customize layout for artboard as well as project

    I have to design for different size screens and therefore miss the fuction of creating a different layout on a different artboard.

    The layout changes if you create a mobile sized artboard, but it is the same for Laptop and monitor size screens (which really doesn't work in most cases).

    Please enable customizing layout by artboard, just like it is possible for guides.

  17. Hide my activity from others collaborating on the layout

    It would be amazing if you guys can manage to add an option that allows designers to hide their activity (while working) from other collaborators.

  19. Intelligent Text Styles

    If you're designing a responsive website the likelihood is you'll be looking at everything from 320px all the way up to 1500px.

    If you could group text styles under a breakpoint and somehow assign that to an artboard size, so when you add text to that artboard it automatically knows what size it should be.

    ie You have a 320 typography folder. You copy and paste the h1 from the 320 to the 1280 artboard it would automatically resize.

    The alternative being you set up your typography separately, looking at breakpoints the same way some CMS do. Assigning H1-H6, Body…

  20. Move the Share icon from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else

    Move the Share icon in the design mode from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else, I am ending up creating too many unwanted links accidentally while trying to move the artboards around. I have to replicate the artboard and delete the original to get rid of an accidental link.
