  1. Improve font alignment

    フォントを揃える時に誤差があります
    例えばテキスト入力ボックスをデザインする時横長の長方形に一行テキストを置いてデザインしますが、長方形とテキストを両方選んで垂直方向で中央揃えをするとテキストを選択した状態でテキスト上に余白がありそれも計算して中央揃えするのでテキストが長方形に対して微妙に下になります。
    中央揃えしたあとにテキストだけ若干上に上げるような操作が必要となります。
    この点改善してください。

    For example, when designing a text input box, design one line text in a landscape rectangle, but if you select both rectangle and text and center it in the vertical direction, there is a margin on the text with the text selected Since it is calculated and centered, the text is slightly below the rectangle.
    It is necessary to operate such as to raise the text only slightly after centering it.
    Please improve on this point.

  2. Change order of artboard in layer panel on duplicate

    When option dragging an existing artboard, the new artboard is placed above the existing one in the artboards panel. I think this is not logical. It should be places under the existing artboard. In most cases, duplicating an artboard is done to continue in the flow of thought, which should be left to right or top to bottom.

  3. Copy and Paste Type From Photoshop

    The XD team just released awesome improvements to design mode in the March Update with the support for copy and paste from Photoshop and Illustrator.

    However, one cannot copy and past type from Photoshop to XD without copying the type as a raster or an SVG.

    A similar problem was addressed for Illustrator here:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13059984-copying-pasting-text-from-illustrator

    It would be great if the solution for illustrator - the ability to copy text and paste it in XD as a text element - was made available for photoshop.

  4. [Windows] Make mousewheel zoom shortcut Space instead of Ctrl

    The reason is that 'Ctrl+Mouse Wheel' for zooming is very uncomfortable due to 'Space+left Mouse press' for moving your mouse pointer. Additionally, touchpads for Windows are not able to move your mouse pointer to left or right.

  5. Move the lock/hide buttons

    I am always annoyingly clicking on the lock and show/hide buttons when working with the layers palette! I only work on my laptop, so real estate matters. I keep the layers palette narrow (the default setting), so when looking in a 4-deep nested group in a symbol, I hardly see the text description. And since those buttons don't appear until you hover over an object, I'm always accidentally locking my objects without actually selecting them as I intended.

    Please consider moving them or floating them off the panel, perhaps only in a narrow view. Or letting me lock/hide them by…

  6. Use Import... to populate images into a repeat grid

    I really like the populate behavior that drag and drop has when used in a repeat grid.

    With that said, and this just maybe how I work, but I feel like it would more efficient to not have to leave the program and just use the shortcut for File > Import... select the files I want, press enter and it populate a repeat grid as if I had dragged and dropped those files from the Finder.

    Granted some may not want that behavior, and I may not want that every time; a possible solution could be to have "import options"…

  8. Make symbol from multiple existing copies of the same elements

    It would be helpful if we could make a new symbol from multiples of the same object - for instance, you've got a button or icon that is exactly the same, but you've got 10 of them in use already. It would be great if you could 'symbol-ize' one of them and have it work on all instances.

  9. Remove automatic highlighting from "HEX" box in color picker after a color is chosen from saved swatches

    Right now, when you open up the color picker, the "HEX" box is highlighted. I get it, it's so you can manually type a value or copy the existing value easily.

    However, once you have selected a new color from a saved swatch, I think the automatic highlighting of the hex should be removed. That way, you could close the color menu by pressing "V" and returning to the regular "move" tool. Right now, I constantly type "V" to try and close the picker, but I end up typing "V"s in the hex box instead.

    Honestly, if there was an…

  10. Horizontal-only-scale drag handle on short elements like text fields

    This small but frustrating issue has been such a common recurring problem for me. See attached. I know if I made the field much taller, the horizonal drag/scale handle would appear, but text fields are always short, I'm always tweaking the length, and it seems like there's room to fit the handle. Why not have it?

  12. Allow multi-selection of an object in a symbol and an object outside of a symbol

    I can't select those two objects (Attachment / Red dots). The reason I want to select them is because I want to align them.

  13. Do not change layers view on deselect

    I find it highly irritating that the Layer-Mode always collapses/closes the Artboard if you click outside of it.

    Some people are used to click outside the artboard to deselect.

  15. Automatically lock shape aspects if you create an shape holding shift

    This is a simple yet time saving feature. If you create a new shape holding down the shift-key the little "Lock Aspect" lock-icon should be locked.

    Because in most of the time Users create shapes with shift to resize the width and hight at the sam time.

  16. Create Symbol toolbar button for quick access

    It would be a great time saver to click on a layer and than on a "Create Symbol" button, instead of having to right-click or to switch to the "Symbol-mode"

  17. Placing multiple images like in indesign

    It would be great if you could just drag multiple images into XD and place them one by one onto shapes (like in indesign)

  18. Maintain scale when dragging symbol from panel

    v 0.6.2.7

    -when placing a symbol, the scale is not always correct, so I drag and drop from the symbols menu/bar, and sometimes the scale is ~70%.

    So when I release, and "place" the symbol, it grows, and isn't placed correctly, requiring me to re-select, and then re-place the symbol. Not a huge problem, but feels like an inconsistent experience, buggy, and was probably just an oversight.

    Symbols should always come off the menu bar @ 100% scale, so I only have to select and place it once.

  19. Snap to 100% zoom when using trackpad pinch (or don't allow zoom past 100% at all with Cmd or Alt)

    I use a lot of zooming in/zooming out while working with XD, it will be cool if I can keep the button cmd or alt pressed and the zoom will block at 100%.

    So if I'm at 60% and pinch zoom with "alt" or "cmd" pressed, the max zoom will get to 100% and not over). Same thing when I'm on 200% (working on some details) and want to zoom out.

    Trackpad user will benefit from that, so easy to zoom in/out with a trackpad but sometimes I need 5 or 6 pinches to find the perfect 100%

    Thank you…

  20. Dragging and Dropping Outside Items into Repeat Grids Instead of Cutting and Pasting

    After creating a repeat grid, if you have elements outside the grid that you want to add to the grid, it cannot be simply dropped into the Repeat Grid 'Group". You have to cut it and double click into the grid to paste it in.
