  1. Move the preview button away from notification area

    On macOS, notifications come from right to left right below the menu bar on the top right. This means that whenever you get a notification, the preview button and the surrounding interactions are covered.

    It's of course frustrating that you ever so often need to close notifications to interact with the preview button. And what's really frustrating is all those times when you are about to click on the preview button, but a notification suddenly gets inbetween and you accidentally open upp Messages, Calendar, Slack or any other app that you got a notification from instead of previewing your design.

  2. Consistency in click behavior throughout the interface

    It is a source of daily/hourly frustration that clicking on the icon portion of a layer will open it while the only way to open an artboard is to double click the icon (just to mention one). This is only one such inconsistency, but it's very frustrating to have layers expand when I'm only trying to select it as the first of a multiple selection while at the same time, clicking anywhere on an artboard from the list will only select it. In this latter case, one has to both double-click and do so in a small hitbox.

  3. blend mode on image does not work when grouped into 'Vertical scroll'

    If you have multiple images with 'Darken' as a Blend mode (for ex) and then if you select all of them and make it as a Vertical Scroll, the blending mode from all the images doesn't work.

  5. Replace long hyphen with standard hyphen in default Artboard names

    When I create an artboard it adds a default name with some type of long hyphen character. This character has problems with other applications. For example, Windows doesn't really like it. It causes artboard export to crap out sometimes. Gmail doesn't like it because when I export a mobile design and gmail it to myself to view on phone (cause I want to), my device sometimes doesn't want to download the attachment. If I change the hyphen, it works. As a user, I don't really care if it's Windows or Gmail or my phone, it's just unnecessary headache. And you…

  6. Trim & Crop the dimension of a Group (Cmd + Resize) without messing the Layers & Constraints inside

    Literally, Figma, Framer, Sketch, InVision Studio and whole lots of others have this.

    It lets you resize a Group or Frame, without messing it's child layers Constraints, Positions and Responsive Design. Kind of like an override for resizing Frames / Groups.

    Just implement it just like them : Cmd / Ctrl + Resize on any direction.

    Basically for quickly masking child layers inside a Group, without really needing a Mask layer (which sometimes doesn't work to be inside, if your Group is with Stacks)

    Also to make the Prototyping on the Canvas much neater, for Drag Groups that goes beyond…

  7. Select by color

    Please add to Adobe XD (select fill color & select stroke color), like in illustrator!

    If you add it, We don't need to edit icons in other adobe products like AI or PS, We can easily edit it on XD!

  9. Maintain different text colors when converting to path

    When two colors in a text box and I convert that text box to a path, the colors will be one color.
    I want a way to convert to a path while preserving the original color.

    1つのテキストボックス内で文字色が2色あるときに、そのテキストボックスをパスに変換すると、色が1色になります。
    元の色を保ったまま、パスに変換する方法が欲しいです。

  10. Retain components states when copying from main and pasting in new file

    Many repots on this forum say you can right click a component to make local, so that you can retain the states of the components in this blank file. 80% of the time, that option does not show for me either directly from the component right click, or from the assets panel. See attached. When I tap unlink, it ungroups the components and states are lost. Lose lose. Please advise.

  15. Allow Adjacent/Overlapping Component States

    Currently if you create two component states with adjacent areas they will trigger each other when used even if there is no area which actually overlaps. I've included an example of what I mean in the video.

  16. Option for side scrolling on artboards

    At the moment, artboards can only be set to have vertical scrolling or no scrolling at all - it would be great to have the option to have horizontal scrolling for the entire artboard, as to better facilitate designs for side-scrolling websites.

    I’ll leave this one open, but you can already do side scroll via a group in an artboard. You can set a scroll area on a wide group, and set the scroll mask to the width of your artboard.

  17. Not putting components somewhere

    Everytime I wanna edit a primary component it will be displayed somewhere in the document. I hate that chaos... whats the purpose???

    You can place your main component anywhere in your canvas, and it will zoom there when you “edit main component.” If you delete your main component after you’ve edited it, it’ll put it on your canvas so that you can edit it. I’d like to understand what you’d prefer the interaction to be like if you’re not happy with the current experience!

  18. Do not resize layout grid when resizing artboard

    Take note from Sketch, where you can actually set a specific size of the grid and grid elements. In XD I have to do all kinds of mathematics just to get what I want out of the grid, and then it turns out it's responsible and IT CAN'T BE CHANGED! When I want to change the size of the artboard the Grid moves along and changes instead of staying in place with same parameters.

    Why it still isn't fixed? Stop adding all kinds of fancy animations that don't matter in real life and please fix the basics!!

  19. Image placeholder style on an object

    A checkbox on the properties that when checked adds an X on the shape turning it into a wireframe photo. The X can be colored with the stroke color

  20. TV presets

    I think the presets for TV devices are missing. Even if we can enter them manually, we need to do it every time and use some homemade component for security zone etc.

    An idea should be to extend the preset device to TV screens (720p, 1080p, HD, 4K, 8K and so on)

    Thanks !
