    Hi Kieran,

    Thanks for your feedback! This feature is already in our backlog – not sure when it will arrive, but we’re aware of the need for it.

    Regards,
    Joe

  3. Better Anchor Point Manipulation


    • Anchor Points are a bit tough to manipulate. The manipulation right now is too 'free'.


    • Points only align to other points within the same vector object and not boundaries, points or edges of other shapes.


    There should be object and point snapping as well as holding shift to snap to axis etc.

  4. Pixel Preview

    A quick toggle for pixel preview would be much appreciated. Just like the one in Adobe Illustrator.

  6. File Properties for Imported Objects

    A 'Properties' or Meta panel, different from a 'CSS' panel.

    This panel would have information on imported or placed files and their attributes.

    Files would have their source (src) property, original dimensions, size, etc. Maybe even a little thumbnail.

    There would also be a way of changing the linked file, opening source file in associated software etc.

  7. Automatically slide other artboards out of the way when moving / reordering

    It would be nice to be able to precisely swap the position of two artboards by dragging and holding a modifier key. So for instance, if there are three artboards in a row, I could hold CMD while dragging artboard 1, and as I hover between artboards 2 and 3, artboard 2 moves to the left to make room to drop artboard 1.

  8. Emoji in text

    I'd love to be able to include emojis in texts when I'm designing.

    In fact I'd love to be able to include my own icons, pasted into texts, similar to what you can do with indesign!

  9. Change / reset an artboard's size to a stock template size

    When I select an existing artboard, the properties panel at the right should present the list of stock sizes (E.g., Apple Watch) for changing the size, with the current stock size selected if it's there.

    I don't care about the content conforming to the new size (though that would be nice).

    Scenario: I've created a bunch of wires and now want to show selected screens targeting a different device:

    Desired steps: duplicate that artboard, set it to a different stock size by selecting it at the right, resize and rearrange a bunch of stuff in the artboard.

  10. Single-click selects objects inside the currently selected group - without need to double-click / hold Cmd

    Hi!

    I know I can directly select a non-group object no matter how deeply grouped it is by Command-clicking it. But if I want to select a group that's grouped multiple levels deep, I'm forced to double-click my way down until I reach it.

    Double-clicking multiple times in a row has annoying feel of excess effort and sluggishness, probably because the minimum elapsed time the OS needs between double-clicks in order to recognize them as separate events is way too long.

    In other products I use (OmniGraffle, Axure), single-clicking an object or a group that's one level down within an…

  11. Add Anchor Points evenly spaced between existing anchors (similar to Illustrator)

    I posted this on the Adobe forums but realized this is the proper place to post.

    I would like to see a tool similar to the "Add Anchor Points" tool in Illustrator, but potentially with a few more features.

    Along with the normal "Add Anchor Points" feature, It would be really nice to be able to select 2 anchor points, use "Add Anchor Points" and choose how many anchor points to add between the two selected points, equally spaced out. This could also work with selecting more than 2 anchor points, or an entire shape.

    Thanks.

  12. Round corners on path anchor points

    It's currently possible to round corners on primitive shapes. As soon as additional anchor points are added, or a shape is created from scratch using the pen tool, the ability to round corners is removed.

    It would be nice to have this option at all times.

  14. Dummy assets

    Would be amazing having some dummy assets already available for use: things like lorem-ipsum placeholder text, content boxes (crossed out), profile picture/user silhouettes and maybe even social media profile icons (FB, Twitter).

  15. Create interactive widgets with custom dynamic behavior

    In order to facilitate interactions within a page, allow a "widget" designer, such that these widgets are fully responsive to touch and context data, etc.
    Once a widget is in the library pallete, the user can drop these in anywhere. With data binding, widget may appear on different pages, and show updates state. For example if the widget had a clock in it the time would be updating every second, and this widget may appear on any screen.
    I might suggest looking a "web components" for this purpose, and framework around using them inside the Xd App as described. These…

  16. Auto Suggestion for Text Panel

    Character Panel: To have Auto suggest features. It gets pretty annoying when you have to hit the drop down menu repeatedly in the workflow. This feature maybe be reused in other places as well!

  19. Detach / float properties panel to allow for multiple display use

    It would be great to have the ability to 'detach' / 'tear off' the properties panel from Xd to accommodate use on multiple displays. (Like Ps panels)

    This would give us more room to work and use all panels etc. on a second screen or even allow for floating panels.

  20. Display Cursor Position X, Y coordinates

    Object position is updated live when you move objects. Would be nice to see cursor position as well in the right sidebar. It helps to measure object distances when the smart guides don't register.
