  1. Delete Button to delete assets/styles in the Assets panel

    It would be great to have the ability to use the delete button to delete color/character styles and symbols (instead of having to right-click).

  2. Font Matching

    When I design, I put a prototype screen, with a look and feel that I like, next to my artboard, and use this as inspiration, like I guess many people do. It would be great if I could get the attributes of the font on the prototype (png or jpg) and quickly use that font in my own design.

  3. Smooth anti-aliased font

    The fonts in XD are so crisp on windows. I kinda like lost my soul of using it there compared to figma.

  4. Easier access to color swatches

    As a user who works with design systems and color palettes often, it would speed up my workflow considerably, if I could select a color swatch directly without opening the color palette.
    A quick selector that openes on hover and shows the swatches could be a nice solution.
    Or color shortcuts.

  5. Ability to adjust grid values

    The gird layout seems to work automatically which isn't correct and not how web design works from a coding point of view.

    I simply want to have 45px margins on the left and right with a 12 grid column. It's IMPOSSIBLE to do this. It keeps re-adjusting things.

    Is this suppose to work like this?

  6. Apply symbol definition to all objects with the same name on creation

    Make Symbols with the same layer name retroactive when you create a symbol later in your project.

  7. Adjust layout grids with the mouse

    The way I would like to see it is like this:


    1. First it should have 2 modes: auto and manual. Auto would generate all columns equal based on single column and gutter values. Manual would let you set your columns and gutters at whatever values one wishes.

    2. It needs to be draggable with the mouse and you should be able to see near the grid line the values of the column you are changing.

    3. After the grid is made mouse interactive, the way you would create one grid could be something like this: First you set the first line mirrored…

  8. Apply global color to selected element with keyboard shortcut

    When I have an element selected, it would be great to apply one of my global colors to it with a keyboard shortcut. XD could give all my global colors a number from top to bottom and then I could reference it with ⌘⇧1 , ⌘⇧2 ... (just an example). In that case I can sort my global colors in the order I use them most and the shortcut automatically references the respective color. Optionally pressing ⌥ could change the border color.

    This would save me a lot of mouse movement and time.

    Thanks

  9. Separate transform tool from selection tool

    Frequently, when I'm just trying to drag and drop a small object, I end up accidentally resizing or transforming it. For example, notice in the attached file how small my target is if I just want to drag and drop. If SELECT were a different tool from RESIZE/TRANSFORM (like in Adobe Animate) this problem would be solved. The direct manipulation points are great when I need them, but get in the way when I don't.

  10. Repeat Grid spread over multiple sheets-allow pieces to auto seat into layers - then reselect all based on similar features or symbol

    Repeat Grid should allow you to spread over multiple sheets. Then "undo-grid" seats each pieces into a proper layer on each sheet.

    Once ungrouped and in separate layers, you should be able to reselect all shapes/groups based on similar features or symbol.

    XD would keep track of the grouping/ungrouping/Grid/Ungroup Grid actions and be able to reselect all or some (manually) NOT using symbols.

    I got lost in initially thinking this Grid tool was to spread from one sheet over many sheets versus using a symbol which doesn't give the same design behaviors as the grid tool.

  12. Search icon is the zoom icon

    Hello Guys,

    I am a visual designer and exploring adobe Xd suddenly one thing noticed my eye icon has been used for zoom in/out functionality actually use for search but adobe XD is using for zoom in/out. I was little bit confused so I chose to test this some of UX designer and visual design or normal people they got his as search icon not for Zoom in/out.

    For research prospective I checked this in photoshop CC so I found zoom icon little bit different form Adobe SD and in photoshop top left corner presenting the both zoom in and…

  13. Selecting and highlighting type is difficult

    Whenever I try to highlight type so I can make a change, the type does not get highlighted, instead it creates a new text area. XD should work the same way Illustrator does when it comes to highlighting, selecting, editing type.

  14. Associate asset display type (grid, list) with the document

    It would be nice to be able to memorize the type of display of the assets by document: I often use the "grid" type and each time I open my document I have to switch.

  15. Add text alignment as a property in the assets panel

    I would like to save the text alignment as a property in the assets panel, so that I don't have to readjust the alignment all the time.

    几个严重的缺陷!请赶快更新版本!

    1.资源面板中的字符样式存储功能,只能存储字体类别、颜色、大小,却无法存储左对齐、右对齐、居中对齐!真的超级麻烦,我每次都要重新调整对齐!

    2.形状描边无法使用渐变!难道XD就只能做界面吗?画个ICON都不行吗?

    3.描边无法扩展成形状!Sketch都能扩展啊啊啊啊啊啊!

    4.不能预设形状!每次都要画完形状后都要取消一次描边,恶心死了

    我将此更改为关于在资产面板中存储对齐。 其余建议已经在数据库中,需要您的upvote。

    *梯度中风:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/17796841
    *扩大笔划形状:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13808037
    *形状库:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13392015

    此消息已被机器翻译。

    I’m changing this to be about storing alignment in the assets panel. The rest of the suggestions are already in the database and need your upvote.

  16. Layout grid should work like InDesign columns

    The grid system should work and look just like the columns in InDesign, the grid is a common thing for all graphic designers and making them look different across apps makes it all feel non cohesive.

  17. Text Frame Options like Indesign

    Because InDesign is such a powerful layout tool, it's textframe options are very helpful in typography (rightclick textframe > textframe options). It allows you to adjust padding inside of the text frame by the unit as well as vertical alignement.

    I know there are other requests for these items separately but I believe XD is capable of having text frames similar to that of InDesign and these would belong together.

  18. Fixed-zoom preview window

    It could be great to have a feature where i can open a small window that shows a highlighted part of the artboard in 100% zoom, and then in my actual workflow i can zoom into 6400%.

    This way i can make very small changes to something like icons, on a pixel level, without having to zoom in and out to preview the changes.

  20. Automatically renumber artboards

    Is it possible to make the names of automatic tables? By working on ten tables, I will always have to name them with the prefix numbers (1 onboarding screens / 2 landing screens / 3 ....)
    when I get to board 20, I want to add a board between 4 and 5, so I have to manually rewrite and number all the other cards that follow.
    It is too boring to spend a lot of time each time manually updating the numbers.

    Thank you for thinking of a solution.
