  1. 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).

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. (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。

  6. 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 :)

  8. 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,…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. When working with linked components, there are often times when individual components will 'mysteriously' not allow operations like delete, make local, etc.
    This is usually because the selected component is a sub-component another compound components.
    The process of finding out which other components in the library depend on the selected components is difficult even for the designer who created the components. It's nearly impossible for collaborators.

    If a function like "Show Dependencies" were added to the right-click context menu of components that fall into this category, it would be much easier to manage.

    I envision this feature as filtering the…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…
