  1. Set object to default to no stroke

    Every single time I make a box or something it adds a border stroke by default. This is so annoying as I don't want a border stroke like 90% of the times. Is this a bug or something? I'm so tired of removing that border stroke!! Please Adobe, make this nightmare go away. If you insist on forcing this upon us as default then at least make a "remember this choice" checkbox or something.

  2. Repeat grid properties in the property inspector (spacing, number of rows/columns)

    Currently, there's no simple way to look up or adjust the spacing of an existing repeat grid element (other than grabbing and dragging the spacing area).

    This is sometimes bothersome because, 1) when just trying to look it up, you don't always want to change the spacing, and 2) finding the spacing adjustment area can be a bit fiddly.

    Also, when you DO want to adjust the spacing, it can be a bit tricky to get it on the exact pixel.

    Therefore, it'd be nice if the spacing property would show up as an input field in the right (properties)…

    Please note that stacks is a feature that is intended to be used at design time, and does not dynamically shift the stack in preview. I’m going to rewrite this particular request to be more precisely about the latter suggestion.

  4. Library of mouse cursors

    Sometimes we have to show a mock-up and simulate mouse cursor states. It would be nice to have a ready-made library available.

  5. Ability to replace/update image files

    I wish I had the ability to select an image and be able to update the file or change the image with out having to import another image if it is exactly the same size or I updated the design.

  6. Tab Button should indent text

    The tab button on a keyboard doesn't indent text like it would in every other text tool in adobe suite.

    please make the tab button indent paragraph text.

  7. Color Agnostic Character Styles

    I want the option when setting up character styles that there doesn't need to be a color associated with the character style.

    For example, I set up my H1, H2, H3 with their respective font families, font weight, & font size. But my design has different background colors. Sometimes my H1 is lack on a white background, which is how I set it up in the Character Styles. While other times my H1 is white on a black background,. But if I change the H1 to white it no longer correlates to the H1 I setup in my character styles…

  8. Rearrange Component States in Property Inspector

    I'd love to be able to rearrange the component state order in the property inspector (the panel on the right in Design mode & Prototype mode). I would also love to be able to resize the section for component states. Currently it maxes out at 4 before you need to scroll.

  9. Curve text baseline along a path

    Being able to do a full webdesign and logo design in one program is what a lot of people need.

    I would have liked to be able to design a logo with text running on a curved path, but seems like I will have to use Fireworks or Illustrator to do that and then bring that into Xd.

    What I loved about Fireworks was that you could do everything in one program. Basic image editing, gradient colors, gradient transparency fade and webdesign. No need to open Photoshop or Illustrator.

    Keep up the good work guys! Loving Xd so far.

  11. Kerning options for text

    Splitting off from the typographic features (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12927885-typographic-features)

    Let's discuss what control over kerning you'd like to see in XD.

  12. Collapse / Expand all folders in the layers panel.

    The ability to collapse / expand all folders in the layers panel, similar to photoshop (Hold Alt + Click on folder to collapse or expand).

    Most elements / symbols have a hand full of layers inside each. These add up after an artboard or so worth of design and having to manually collapse each individual group of layers individually can take up a bit of time.

    Would just be a bit of a time save for those of use who spend a lot of time organising our layers.

  13. Color Blindness Compliance/WCAG Accessibility Tools

    I would like to see an ON/OFF switch to test for color conflicts with regard to 508 compliance.

    This is valuable to me because I design for a large company and we need to make sure that everything tests fine against 508 compliance, which includes color conflicts for color blindness and deficiencies.

    While we still don’t have the tools built right into XD (and so I’m leaving this open), we do have at least one plugin to help with color blindness checking. Please do check out the plugins section of XD to see if one will work for you!

  14. Support for Variable Fonts

    Thanks for an awesome product and for valuing community requests!

    I'm very interested in incorporating variable fonts to our UI, especially for navigation states where font weights change on hover without changing the character/word/line width. But currently I have no way to design using these fonts in XD -- all of the style variations are set in CSS axes definitions, not by specing a font weight or transform element. Adding the font to my computer does load it to my list in XD, but there's only one weight: Regular. No italics, no weights, no widths, no serif variation, no nada.…

  15. Automatically generated charts and graphs

    We often design Area Graphs, Doughnut Charts, Bars etc for Dashboards. Personally I switch between AI and PS to design this type of stuffs.

    But it would be great to have an easier way design Charts and Graphs in Adobe XD.

    For example, I would like the following method to design a Doughnut Chart:
    Draw a circle
    Select Doughnut Chart from Menu
    Insert Percentages and colors
    Hit OK and done!
    Similar idea for other type of graphs.

    Thanks for the Awesome work, XD Team!

  16. Data grid/table component with core functionality

    A data table component with headers, columns of varying widths, alternating row colors, add/delete rows, add/delete columns - very standard stuff! See Axure, PowerPoint, Confluence, etc. etc. Should be able to paste data from an Excel worksheet. An enterprise designer like me, who deals with data-rich UIs, must have this before I can consider adopting XD as my standard tool.

    Seems so obvious! But I haven't found this in other suggestions, most others focus on one aspect of a table instead of core table properties. I'd love to hear I'm just missing it somehow...

  17. Preserve corner radius when resizing

    If I'm drawing a rectangle and setting a corner radius of X, and need to resize that rectangle's width, I'd like to just be able to push one side without having the other side's corner radius "squashing" up.

    Currently it's possible to do so by editing vector points and just selecting the left or right-side point group, but it wastes a bit of time. Thanks :)

    Got it. Currently, that’s expected behavior, as double clicking and adding points converts it from a rectangle (which will maintain the corner radius) to a path, which has a different set of rules for resizing (for things like icons). I think what you want is this behavior: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12962355. If this looks good, I’ll go ahead and merge this story with that one.

  18. Set spacing between objects to a specific number of pixels

    Adobe Fireworks style specific alignment in pixels.

    Set spacing vertically or horizontally, by typing a specific number value into the panel.

  19. Pin objects/groups to top of artboard layer order

    As you go through a design, objects are created and sequentially stacked on top of each other. This affects Z index and view.

    Using things like self created grid/layout systems or objects that are required to stay at the top of the z index get obscure and I spend an awful lot of time reorganizing my layers. Too much time.

    To save time - having the ability to "pin" the layer order of groups or objects would be amazing. Additionally, defining group/object stacking order by "pinnable" alphanumeric identification would be terrific. example:

    Top Layer — Pin1
    Second to — Pin2…

  20. Apply gradient to text

    Hi,

    Would be really nice if you could add gradient to text as well as objects.
