  1. star margin

    Hello,

    Could be interesting to consider the possibility to add a star margin. For exemple I want to be able to set a left, top and bottom margin but not a right one. So the right margin would take the rest of the space on the right.

  2. radial repeat grid

    I'm fairly new to XD so not sure if there is a way to do this already, but I thought of creating a radial repeat grid. Say you want to quickly create a clock face or compass. Designing one or 2 elements or numbers then having a repeat grid available to stretch around in a circle, or even just a curve.

  3. When panning the canvas, make UI 90% Opaque.

    When holding spacebar and moving around your entire canvas: instead of cutting off content behind the UI panels, why not decrease the opacity of your UI Panels on the left and right to be about 90%. This way you can at least see what's being overlapped etc while moving. When it's registered that you've stopped moving, the UI flips back to 100% opacity.

  5. Paragraph spacing should not affect linked character style

    As it is now, adding paragraph spacing to a text box disconnects that text from its character style. If I am to update the character style my text box is not updated accordingly. And I can't add paragraph spacing to the character style, so that feature is rendered useless.

  6. More robust SVG export

    XD hangs when exporting a complex vector (in my case c. 800KB in size). Illustrator has no issue handling this.

  7. Export XD artboard to Photoshop as smart object

    I would be great to have a option to export selected artboard/s to Photoshop as smart objects. Just like Vector Smart Object from Illustrator.

    Currently copying and pasting XD artboard in Ps makes it as flat image.

    This could be useful for making advanced device mockups, we could make changes inside XD and it will automatically update in Ps. Or just show popup with choice "Smart object / Flatten image".

  8. Component states in the Touch Bar

    Show the component states in the Touch Bar when that specific component is selected. It's nice to be able to hit esc to return to the default component but you still need to mouse over and click on the next state you want to edit it.

  9. Retain angle and position of gradient in color asset

    When I save a gradient fill under 'Colors' section in Asset panel, the angle & position is not getting saved. Every time when I use that gradient from asset panel it is coming from top to bottom direction irrespective of what I had set before. Please retain the gradient angle & position also as part of the asset.

  10. Repeat duplicate including distance

    I would like to drag an object holding down option to duplicate it and having CMD-D (duplicate) repeat the duplication with the previously used distance.

    ALT-Drag from A to B -> CMD-D (uses the distance between A and B)

    This would help so much. Sketch and Figma already have this behaviour. I think even Illustrator has it.

    I'm sure you used to be able to close the preview window with CMD+W now this is not possible, can you please reinstate that? (Mac Catalina) Thanks

    Thanks for reaching out. I just confirmed with our quality engineers that this does work on Catalina. However, if you have a keyboard trigger set on the artboard you’re previewing, XD will not respond to the command, as Cmd+W could be a valid keyboard trigger. Let us know if this resolves the issue for you.

  12. Bulk delete linked components

    Why is not possible to select group of linked components and delete them from project? Why this is only possible individually? I’m enclosing image.

    In general the management of components is quite week and not user friendly. I can link all components from others projects, but then I cannot unlink them or manage them at all... Good idea, but functionality is not quite finished .

  14. Select contained

    Add "Select Contained" like Axure. I don't like Select Intersected. I spend too much time selecting things I have not choice.

  15. Snap to vector points

    I am looking for a feature to snap objects to already existing geometry. So for example I have an existing line and want to draw a rectangle, which starts exactly at one endpoint and ends (with one side) at the other endpoint of the line (like object snap in AutoCAD for example or like the behaviour in Sketchup).

    For the moment I would be fine with snaping to endpoints, more advanced it would be great to have "variable" snapping to edges/lines as well.

    This would allow for more accurate and faster designs.

  16. Using Background Blur and Shadow at the same time

    Description of the feature

    Use shadows and background blur on an object at the same time. Right now it seems the bg-blur blurs also the shadow? It gets muted down to 10% or something, I can barely see the shadow anymore.

    Why this is valuable to you

    This is important for iOS apps since translucency is key in iOS.

    If possible, an image or video that helps us understand your feature request

  17. Scroll assets panel with arrow keys

    4) Permitir desplazarce en la lista de activos, con las flechas del teclado, porque cuando hay muchos componentes es muy lento hacerlo con el mouse.

    4) Allow scrolling in the list of assets, with the arrows of the keyboard, because when there are many components it is very slow to do it with the mouse.

  19. Cycle through objects that are highlighted on canvas

    2) Al Resaltar en Lienzo, debería hacer auto zoom, por lo menos en la mesa de trabajo donde se encuentra el objeto ya que entre tantos objetos, solo lo marca y no se aprecia donde se encuentra. Ademas seria ideal permitir cambiar el color de marcación para resaltarlo.

    2) When Highlighting on Canvas, you should auto zoom, at least on the artboard where the object is located since among so many objects, it only marks it and it is not appreciated where it is. Also it would be ideal to allow to change the marking color to highlight it.

  20. Locate asset on canvas

    UBICAR ACTIVO EN EL LIENZO

    1) A medida que en la lista de Activos me desplazo, seleccionar automáticamente el componente en el lienzo.

    Así se ubica más rápido entre tantos elementos.

    Ya que actualmente lo marca pero no lo ubica, se hace muy difícil ubicarlo.

    As I scroll through the list of Assets, automatically select the component on the canvas.

    Thus it is located faster among so many elements.

    Since it currently marks it but does not locate it, it becomes very difficult to locate it.
