  1. Function: "Quick Menu from Text Paragraph"

    when you have a paragraph of vertical text or a list of items if you click the right button of the Might Mouse separate each paragraph break or line break in a menu item, then it would be a ready to use menu and could be edited separately as if it were a menu created from different text boxes.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. Import Object Placement feels unpredictable

    Every time I import an image into XD, whether it's the same image over and over, or different images, the (x, y) location changes each and every time. Even if I have something selected, the image will still import to a random location.

    I feel that items should import to (0, 0) so they can be found. This especially is needed for small images. However, there is also no indication of where (0, 0) is in the file, so some sort of grid or (0, 0) acknowledgement is needed in order for this to work properly.

    I have noticed that…

    What steps are you following to import images into Adobe XD?

    If you use File > Import, the image should be placed according to the following rules:
    - If you have an artboard or an object on an artboard selected, the image is centered in that artboard
    - Otherwise, the image is centered in the window

    You you drag & drop files from Finder instead, the image placement will be based on your mouse position when you dropped the image.

    If you’re seeing something different, could you reply back with some more details? A screencast would be extra helpful to understand what’s happening.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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)

  19. Save custom libraries of shapes/icons to drag and drop

    In photoshop, you can import .csh files that contain a myriad of UI icons and shapes, and then draw them in the same way as a rectangle or ellipse. This has been invaluable as i can simply choose the icon shape i wish to use, and then create it to the size i want. I understand that you can bring in vector objects from illustrator, but it would save time if a "custom shapes" option was added. Perhaps this would allow people to create a material design icon set, or an ios icon set that could be accessed on demand…

  20. Remove spaces from Artboard name when duplicating

    When drag-copying dartboards to create new ones, a 'space-hypehn-space-number' is added to the name. These spaces carry over to the exported files. Obviously this is not good practice as spaces should be used in files intended for web use. Are you planning on removing these in a future update?
