  1. Shift and arrow keys to enlarge workspace

    Normally it is possible to increase or decrease the numerical values using Shift and the arrow keys (up and down). Alternatively also with mouse click on the icon in front of it to drag up and down.

    I would like to apply this also for the height of the workspace. This also worked until recently, but since recently you can only enter fixed values here. Unfortunately, this is not very practical.

  2. Make it easier to Import Colours from a Library into a new design

    Hi

    Previously Adobe XD allowed you to import colours from a library into your new design but an update over the holiday seems to have either hidden or removed this option. I've been poking it for a good half an hour and can't work out how we are supposed to import colours from a library into a new design now and can't see any guides on what has changed here? It used to be as simple as clicking on the colour - I may just be missing something?

  3. Enable quick saving for Local File Systems

    Since the new update you have this super unnecesary complicated hotkey for "saving locally" but no hotkey for quicksaving your file locally.

    Probably the best option would be to have this in Xd settings to change your default space for saving like in Illustrator.

  4. Keep Copy consistent when using text styles across component states

    I have component where the Default state of my text link has a font family as Regular, and in State 2, I changed the font weight to bold, it becomes very painful to reuse that component because I have to re-write the copy in every state. Imagine doing that for 20 links on a main navigation panel... not very fun to maintain either.

  5. New CC libraries are not thought through

    Somehow the new CC Libraries are not thought through. There are two things which are really a problem in my opinion.

    First:
    When I publish a library I now have all components, styles and colors from XD in all applications. Which is ok for colors but what should I do with the styles and components in print for example? They are completely useless because I will define other styles and components in InDesign. So now the libraries are getting more and more filled up with elements you don't need.

    Second:
    I use always the same template for style guides. For…

  6. Explode compound paths from imported (SVG) assets, better path editing like figma

    Release or explode compound paths
    Better path / anchor point handling
    Boolean operation behaviour like in figma

  7. Selecting a nested group using direct select

    When you hover over a group and see the blue highlight, you should be allowed to click and select that group. This will make selecting things SO much easier!!

    Thanks

  8. Multi select in Searched / Filtered Layer List

    It is currently not possible to Shift-Select multiple items once the layer list is filtered or searched.

    It would be very helpful to have this feature as only relevant items are left and you probably want to select them all

  9. Pasting vector from Illustrator is adding unnecessary steps that weren't there before

    Some change you have made that is related to pasting vector graphics from Illustrator is grouping the path twice when before it didn't do it at all. Please go back to the way it was before. I now have 2 extra steps of ungrouping twice. You even put a clipping path around it too.

  10. Spell check all text areas across all artboards

    While the current spellcheck is great when you are typing, there's currently no way of running spellcheck across all your artboards in a project.

    I end up copying and pasting a lot of text into a design when I'm working but there's no guarantee that the spelling and grammar is correct. Currently, I would have to go through each text area individually.

    It would be fantastic if this improvement could be considered.

  11. Adobe Magento Design Kits & Plugins

    Hi I'm a UX/UI designer based in Panamá.

    Magento is getting popular and the number of companies that want a e-commerce is growing and they are in the need of functional sites and very quickly.

    This need could be fulfilled with a prototyping plugin or XD Files with all the functions that Adobe Magento have for B2B, B2C and Marketplaces.

  12. Having overriding variables in child components.

    Hello,
    There is a huge problem with child component and you should take it into consideration.
    In my design system I defined a button, my master. This button is made of a background color and a label. There are different state for my button : normal, hover, pressed, disabled, error. So the background or the border and even the color of my label change depending of the state.
    When I changed the label's value text on the main state all the other state are changed accordingly. Wonderfull !!!

    It's exactly what I want for all childrens in all my different…

  14. Match fonts weight with browsers fonts weight

    Fonts seem lighter, or too sharp, in XD than in browser reality.

  15. Design System Versioning

    We work in a micro-service architecture where all apps don't use the current version of the design system. It would be great to select the version of the system that reflects the app/environment we're designing for.

  16. Why won't this svg open?

    All the icon svg paths in the polaris icon system won't open in XD. It seems to be valid svg and renders in the browser just fine. It also won't open in Illustrator.

  17. Adapt text and picture in all states of a component automatically

    Components are meant to be used multiple times. Most of the time, when a component, for example a Picture-Text-Link, is used many times we need to change the text und the picture. This has to be done for every state of the copied component manually (default state, hover state, ...). This takes a lot of time and can be slightly annoying.
    It would be a great update if changing the text and picture in the default state of a copied component would automatically be adapted in every state of the copied component.

  18. 3D transform Perspective Depth

    I love the new 3D transform! It's going to be great for so many projects but I would love for it to have an additional setting that is in both the Illustrator version of rotate as well as 3rd party solutions such as how Protopie does 3D rotate and that it Perspective Depth.

    Right now all of the 3D transforms are at the same perspective and while you can change the angle a bit by rotating the object after 3D transforming, it's not ideal.

  20. Automatically change the name of the layer that acts as a mask

    It would be very helpful to automatically change the name of the mask layer to something like "Mask" or "Masker". That kind of rename changes would help a lot when you have to work.
