  1. Allow Component States in repeat grid

    Let's say we want to add a Radio Group and use our Design System Radio Button Component for that. Currently it's not possible to set one of the components to the selected state.

    As a workaround we can create the list with the repeat grid, then ungroup it and change the desired item. But that can't be how it's intended to work.

    ps: I feel bad for lodging a Feature Request days after you released such a great feature. It sounds lI'm ike complaining instead of being thankful - thats not the case, the component states are awesome,d thank you…

  2. Retain components states when copying from main and pasting in new file

    Many repots on this forum say you can right click a component to make local, so that you can retain the states of the components in this blank file. 80% of the time, that option does not show for me either directly from the component right click, or from the assets panel. See attached. When I tap unlink, it ungroups the components and states are lost. Lose lose. Please advise.

  3. Switch keyboard shortcuts for Save As and Save As Local

    this is bad UX!

    Command-Shift-S

    the standard keyboard shortcuts, which you also know from other adobe products, should save the file locally and not to the cloud.

    Command-Option-Shift-S

    the extended keyboard shortcut can save the file in the cloud.

  4. The incompatible problem of chinese text underline

    Why is the text underline function of xd always incompatible with Chinese characters? Do you think it is unnecessary to optimize for the Chinese? My version is 40.0.22.12 (Currently the latest).

  7. Pre-Composed Animations

    When creating loading animations or other interactions that require multiple screens to prototype. What if those animations/screens can be pre-composed similar to how we can pre-compose in After Effects. This way, all the of the artboards that were used to create the animation can be consolidated into one board that can be linked to a button or other objects as an interaction.

  8. Global layout grid for specific artboard sizes

    Hello, I would find an option to assign a global grid super helpful. One could apply the values at the beginning and if they would like to change that grid in the future it could apply to all artboards of the same size. Right now, I have to manually go through and edit each grid if I want even the slightest change in values. I have found doing this takes a lot of time and effort.

  9. Horizontal stack with fixed width

    Being able to fix the width, when stack is active, then on adding / removing items the padding should be distributed evenly between the element.

    Will let us recreate the same logic as the "display: flex, justify-content: space-between", useful for app development like navbar that always have the same width.

  10. Embed text so that it's not replaced by a fallback font

    (Summary in English) If a font is not installed, we should show text as if it were installed, and only falling back if edited. The behavior of fonts should be the same as for Photoshop.

    テキストレイヤーを触らない時には該当フォントがなくても表示が崩れないようにしてほしい

    テキストレイヤーについて、Photoshopでは該当フォントがインストールされていなくても、レイヤーを編集しない限りは表示が崩れないのですが、XDだと該当フォントがない場合には別フォントで表示されてしまうため、Photoshop同様に表示が崩れないようにしてほしいです。

  11. Fix background fill

    When I use overlay type animation to go to another artboard, for example with a modal window (slide left, slide down, ... ), I want to be able to fix the background fill.

  12. Adjust values in the property inspector using relative values

    On the transformation panel; height / width .. if I write +10 or -10 adds or subtracts from the original value.

    btw: pressing the ESC key causes the input editing to end :)

  14. Change global color only on selected 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…

  15. Color variation support in repeated grids

    Ability to change individual item colors in repeated groups, in the same way you can change text. Perhaps with a similar system of dropping a text file of hex values to change them.

    Alternatively, the ability to have component states be different within repeated groups would be helpful.

    For example, I have a health meter in a table, shows a heart in red, yellow, or green. I can have each as a component state and in a repeated grid, select the individual items I want to change for variation WITHOUT having to ungroup. I'm forced to ungroup all the time,…

    You can place your main component anywhere in your canvas, and it will zoom there when you “edit main component.” If you delete your main component after you’ve edited it, it’ll put it on your canvas so that you can edit it. I’d like to understand what you’d prefer the interaction to be like if you’re not happy with the current experience!

  17. "Variables" to use on any value (like distances)

    I saw there are already several feature requests about variables, but none of them seemed to be exactly the same.

    I seem to spend quite some time placing elements on the screen to ensure distances between them are just like we want them.
    Lets say for instance that the page is divided into sections, and each section starts with a Headline. The headline has a 80px margin to the top of the section. After the section content, there is again a 80px margin to the bottom of the section.
    It would be great if this value (80px) could be a…
