  1. Show measurements between objects when resize

    Show measurements when resize can be very useful when I resize a button. In this way, I can know the margin between button border and button text

  2. Set grid to align bilaterally - align perfectly with all 4 artboard edges, with rounded / irregular grid cell size at the exact center

    The iPhone 6 has screen dimensions that aren't divisible by 8. As a result, placing a regular grid means that the last grid on the right and bottom and off.

    Given that UI designs are bilateral vertically, if you want to make the side margins 16pts and aligned with the grid, the left margin will be off the grid.

    To counter that you can make the center grid off by that 1pt, which normally doesn't affect the placement of objects as much.

    The same could be done for the horizontal grid, however since most apps aren't bilateral horizontally this is…

  3. Content Options for Objects

    It would be great if we could assign a content type to an object (graphic, text, unassigned) and set the inset spacing you want applied as well like you can currently InDesign (see screenshots).

    It avoids the extra work to create an object and text field separately and group them. This also ensures that the text is always vertically and horizontally centered within your object (see button example in screenshot).

  5. Limit Repeat Grid option

    Provide an option to specify the maximum number of repeated elements so that if the screen is displayed on a slightly larger screen, part of an image will not show.

  6. Add artboard closer to where I clicked the mouse

    When I click add new artboard, the artboard should be placed where my mouse clicks, not automatically placing at random place.

  7. Corners should reflect rotation

    Corner radius controls should reflect the visual corners of a rectangle so that I don't have to remember the rotation of my object.

    WAS:
    To create this bug.

    1) Mask an image
    2) Edit the corners of the masking rectangle
    3) The top left and top right radii effect the bottom left and bottom right respectively (as displayed by the blue corner highlight icon).

    Thanks

    James

  8. Tile document windows

    Copying, drag and drop and/or pasting assets from one document to another (as we can do in Acrobat and Illustrator). This would really work well with UI KIt - being able to zoom in, pan & select the needed asset). Thanks for creating another great tool.

  9. Line Height and Font Size fields are too similar looking (easy to confuse/mistake for each other)

    When I want to change the size of text, I keep changing the line height. Everytime! I think this part of the UI could do with a bit of a rework to address this.

  10. Moodboard (split window which can appear and disappear)

    While designing I have a lot of stuff I look at in my finder as inspiration. How about getting a feature by which I can just tap a button to view a window which presents me with all the different things I collected together for inspiration.

  11. Speed up zoom in/out animation when zooming with keyboard shortcuts

    You can delete/reject this if it's mentioned elsewhere.

    When using the keyboard (Cmd+ or cmd-) and when using Cmd+opt+mouseclick to zoom out, I feel that I'm wrestling XD regarding the zoom speed.

    This for me feels like a stark difference from when I use the macbook's trackpad, It's fast and buttery smooth.

  12. Draw swimming lanes on the canvas

    Would it be possible to create 'swimming lanes' in order to visualize on which level a certain part of the flow/design operates? I've added a simple visualisation of it, just to illustrate the idea.

  13. Pen tool: snap curve control/tangent points to grid

    I use the handles snapping to grid functionality extensively when creating icons and other detail-intensive shapes. This is critical to my workflow.


    Note from Adobe: curve anchor points (the points the curve pass through) should snap to the grid already. This request is about the curve control points (the two handles on either side of each anchor point, with the tangent line connecting them) snapping to the grid; this does not cause any visible part of the path to align to the grid better, it just helps keep the control points organized and makes it easier to match curves identically…

  15. Create shapes in a specific size like in AI and PS

    When I select rectangle tool in photoshop and click in the canvas (or in AI) it shows me a box for width, height and radius etc.

    It would be great in XD especially when creating form elements and buttons.

  17. Drag and Drop a text file with break lines using "\n"

    I have a suggestion about drag and drop a text. How we can put a text with a break lines? I just tried put a file.txt with a string "\n" to try break line. Did you think about it? In case, I have just one field and I will drag and drop a text. Is that clear?

  18. Resizable font family list

    Description: The font family list under TEXT should be resizable, or at the very least dynamically sized to expand to fit larger available screen size.

    Value: A larger list would significantly reduce selection time spent using this control. The constrained size of the list is very limiting, only showing 16 choices at a time.

  19. Lock all objects underneath current selection

    An option for locking the objects underneath the selected object for locking could also be considered, which may help at certain instances.

    While 'Cmd+L' locks individual object, 'Cmd+Shift+L' can be assigned to lock all the objects underneath the selected objects too.

  20. Change orientation of property inspector W/H/X/Y

    This is very hard to describe in words so please see the screenshot.

    Essentially, let's put WIDTH and HEIGHT side by side in the toolbar interface, and below that, place X and Y coordinates side by side.

    Further, please add the coordinate origin (that little thing that defines where on the object the X and Y coordinates are referencing. The absence of this is a major frustration for me in Sketch and Keynote. (perhaps a power feature, but standard in Adobe apps)
