  1. Move the Share icon from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else

    Move the Share icon in the design mode from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else, I am ending up creating too many unwanted links accidentally while trying to move the artboards around. I have to replicate the artboard and delete the original to get rid of an accidental link.

  2. To be able to edit layers on top of a locked one

    If I have overlapping layers and I want to edit one of them, I usually lock the ones I do not want edited/ to move. Using Illustrator, I can draw a rectangle and set it as my artboard background and work freely without it going anywhere. I can't seem to do this in Adobe XD.

  3. Drafts design separate organization

    Old designs isn't less important to us "Designers" from the final ones,
    as it is considered as an evidence about the product development with the process,
    But we too don't like to have a crowd work space with those old designs,
    so we need something like a separate folder named "Drafts" for example so that the workspace still clean and wide while we can return to our old design easily as well,

  4. Grid responsive in scale with objects/components

    The main issue I encounter is no matter which manual setting I set for responsive design the object does not scale proportionally with the column grid. So if the column with is 20px and the object is 20px when I made the object responsive and the board, the object will end up shorter than the gride so the pixel scaling is not proportionate to each other.

    I also use Figma, and in their app when you change the responsive width of the board the object resizes to scale with the columns, this is not the case with Adobe XD. This…

  5. 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).

  6. Repeat grid doesn't respect auto height text in a group with stacks enabled

    In the table example shown below, the text element in the third column is set to auto height. All of the table cells are in Cell Group, which was then grouped with the horizontal line below Cell Group to create Row Group. Row Group has stacking turned on so that the horizontal line is always 16px below Cell Group.

    This is all well and good until Repeat Grid enters the picture. If I create a repeat grid from Row Group, set the grid spacing to 16px, then populate variable height content into Column 3, I get the mess shown in…

  7. Force a path into a shape so you can edit it like a shape.

    It would be be nice if there was a right-click option like "force path to shape." Paths do not have the edit options that shapes do.

    For example, when I take a rectangle and change the edges or add new corners, XD automatically changes this to a "path." I've done this both intentionally and accidentally.

    If I want to change this shape back to a rectangle so that I can edit the border radius, I have to redraw and restyle that shape from scratch. It would be really cool if Xd could identify the closest shape and force into that…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  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 :)

  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,…

  16. "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…

  18. [Mac] Switch documents while in full screen mode

    Hi -

    I'm new to XD, but think I'm getting the hang of toggling between files that are open - since there are no pages as there are in Sketch. I like your Command + ~ keyboard shortcut very much for accomplishing this.

    However, what I don't like is when a project file window is maximized, you can't execute the command, I believe - only when projects you are toggling between are in more reduced windows frames.

    I maximize my projects for size, to be able to see more of the contents of a project. So, giving me such functionality…

  19. 2 -sided shape faces for 3d transformed objects

    I created a cube with basic shapes but when I rotate them the item in front seems to disappear giving the shape a hollow feeling.

    I think if we give the options to enable 2 sided shapes then this can be avoided and create some really cool 3d shapes animations.

    This will help us create complex 3d shapes in XD it self for e.g.cubes.

  20. Apply hex color in clipboard to selected object

    When I paste an hexadecimal color outside of a text zone, i expect the selected object to take the background color specified in the text, not to paste the text as raw text
