  2. I would like to be able to select a group of text and convert it to a grid so, therefore, I can have the benefits of grid features without having to create it from scratch and or recreate one I accidentally ungroup.

  3. in the cell I have rectangle on the left and grouped three different tekst line on the right centered with this rectangle vertically. I grouped these three lines of text and added a stack. When I hide the second line, the third line goes up, but this group (all text) is not re-centered with the rectangle.
    with other objects in the grouped stack too.

    I need such a function in main component. If I change the number of lines of text (or objects) into an instant component to re-center.

  4. Can we have a shortcut to select the artboard you're currently in? The cmd+click empty space is just not viable in a lot of situations and forces you to do some manual actions (find an empty space, go to arboard in layer panel, navigate to top and click, etc) which takes you out of your design flow.

    Sketch implemented it nicely, where you click Esc to exit a group (just like in XD!), but when it's the last group, it will select the arboard. XD just exits.

    I would really appreciate this feature, with ESC, or any other hotkey to…

  5. Working with a developer, we think it would be a good idea to mark the name of the colors of fonts… we are adding in the asset panel in the panel right to the app.
    It will allows dev that are using the XD document locally on their computer (without the link) to watch exactly the name of the Color or the style for each element without reading informations.
    It will be also possible if the Color or the style used is focus in the asset panel.

  6. I work on a path planning project.
    User must preview the path.

    I NEED to produce several iterations of the same path animation, with different colors or informations.
    XD will allow me to implement the path representations in the app, without reproducing the user journey in After Effects : It becomes "real"
    Then I can test each version of the path, very easily, and get precious feedbacks

    After Effect is the tool => export a transparent video
    because AFAIK it doesn't export transparent gif

    Back into XD, my app structure (background, menus, etc) remains unchanged, and we can test every…

  7. 高速スクロール機能が欲しいです。

    XDでのデザインは縦に長くなることが多いので作業を効率化するために高速スクロール機能が必要だと思います。
    Illustratorではshift+マウスホイールで縦に高速スクロールするので同じ機能がXDこそ必要だと思います。

    • Auto translation: - Designs in XD are often vertically long, so I think you need a high-speed scrolling function to make your work more efficient. In Illustrator, shift + mouse wheel scrolls vertically at high speed, so I think that XD needs the same function.

    ご説明ありがとうございます! デザインプロセスではなくプレビューに焦点を合わせるように機能リクエストを調整しました。


    このメッセージは機械翻訳されています。


    Thank you for your clarification! I've adjusted the feature request to focus on preview instead of during the design process.

  8. What I ask is very simple: add an horizontal scroll bar to the layers panel, so I can scroll it without the need to resize and making my prototype working area even smaller than it already is. This is a very common aproach to IDEs on the folders panel, despite allowing resizing, they always have an horizontal scroll bar to help navigation on deep levels or small monitors.

    This feature would be very appreciated for people with deep components hierarchy levels or smaller monitors.

  9. To have full control on editing of a compound path it would be rally helpful to be able to release it from it's compound. This way font icons or text that is converted to a path is much easier to edit. At this moment I need Illustrator as a workaround.

  11. I would like the ability to add additional metadata or tags to assets within a library so that they would be found with the search field. For example, I may have an icon called "search" that is a magnifying glass. I would like to add additional keywords to that asset such as "magnifying glass" or "filter" in case that's what other collaborators might use to search for this icon. This is a simplified example, but I've already run into needs for this multiple times while compiling our design system file.

  13. In many other apps, when I see an eye icon it is because that layer is VISIBLE / ACTIVE. In XD this icon works exactly the opposite. We have a strikethrough icon with an eye that when active represents INVISIBLE layer and when not active represents VISIBLE layer.

    It confuses me so much each time.

    2 options:

    1. KEEP THE STRIKETHROUGH ICON: Can we revert the way it works so by default no icon appears and then you can click to hide layers.

    or

    1. DO AS IN AFTER EFFECTS: A normal eye icon for showed layers and nothing for hidden ones.

  15. A busy design session may result in "orphan" Character Styles which are not named or do not conform with the standards. For example, I want all body copy to be 14pt but a few instances were wrongly created at 13pt. Currently, I click one instance of the 13pt, then "Add Character Style to Assets". I can then use the "Highlight on Canvas" feature to SHOW ever instance. But I cannot apply the 14pt style to them because they are not SELECTED. If "Select on Canvas" were an option, I could apply the correct 14pt style to all of the 13pt…

  17. create a keyboard shortcut for 'add state' please. or better, a suite of keyboard shortcuts affiliated with adding all the different type of states to a component.

    When working through a suite of icons, for example, this is a very tedious process to have to manually repeat 2 states per icon using the mouse to hover over and click every time.

  18. There’s a number of problems that arise when the component instances don’t have their own name field. Component instances should have an instance name and a name field that always maps back to the master.

    Currently, the logic is, if you rename an instance, the connection between the master’s name and the instance name is severed. Though, the actual inheritance link between the master and instance is still intact. This causes a confusing user experience. You can’t tell what’s derived from what.

    The current logic is too clever for its own good. If you decide to change the name of…

  19. Bug: When you edit an animation in design mode and try to edit the time, there is an error when you try to type the time.

    The textfield shows for example:
    0,5 Sec.

    If try to edit and you type:
    0,6 Sec.

    it goes back to
    0,5 Sec.

    You need to type:
    0.6 Sec.
    to edit the field correctly.

    And then, the field shows again:
    0,6 Sec.

    Why? It drives me crazy when editing animations. It should be only. 0,6 (comma) and also SHOWING 0,6 but not this mixed mode.

    Also it would be very convient if the "Sec". would…
