  1. Automatically rename mask layer

    It seems silly, but that the layer that makes a mask has its icon and is automatically called "Mask" helps a lot in projects with many layers.

  2. Swapping nested components in an instance still respects position and scale of nested components in main component

    When having nested components in a main component and then creating instances of that main component and swapping the nested components inside that instance, the nested components in the instance no longer reflect the position, scale, etc of the main component if you move the nested component around. You can see an example from @ArvidFB (twitter) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixz2-ePjLWs&feature=youtu.be

  3. Input field for distances between two objects like in Sketch

    One of the top features of Sketch for me are the input fields for distances between two objects (see screenshot). So you can easily adjust the distances between two selected objects

  4. Larger hit area on close button for Libraries pop up

    It seems clickable area is set to the exact size of closing icon? Could you make it a bit bigger?

  5. Auto-Focus and Pre-Clear Asset Search

    I frequently toggle between the layers and assets panel. I find it frustrating that my previous search is still present when I toggle back to the assets panel. Right now, I have to move my cursor over to the search bar, clear it, and type my new search (I almost always rely on search to find an asset rather than scrolling through the list).

    I would like for the search to reset when the assets panel is reopened, and for the search bar to be auto-focused when I open the assets panel. This way, every time I open the panel…

  6. Selecting a nested group using direct select

    When you hover over a group and see the blue highlight, you should be allowed to click and select that group. This will make selecting things SO much easier!!

  7. Correct the dimensions to 1x when pasting a retina screenshot

    When pasting from a mac screenshot the retina image is x2 the actual size. This means every time you paste in a screenshot you have to divide the width by 2 to get the correct dimensions. Can you detect a retina asset when pasting and compensate? If you use this pattern all the time it is a drag.

  8. Hold keyboard shortcut to disable swap component

    When I am trying to build nested components-- in order to prevent it from swapping, I have to click into the component in order to drag another component from the assets panel. I would like the ability to hold a modifier key to prevent this from happening. It would save time and clicks.

  9. Selecting the artboard in layers panel when it's already selected should not zoom to fit

    PROBLEM:
    Sometimes my artboard collapses out of nowhere so I have to double click the artboard name to open it back up to see the layers again. But when I do that, XD zooms me out to see the entire artboard. So I have to zoom back in to find the section I was working on again.

    SOLUTION:
    If the artboard you're opening is the one that's already in view, don't perform any zooming actions. (I understand that this feature is to help you find artboards when you need to, but it doesn't help when you're already on it)

  10. Prevent editing on some artboarts in a shared cloud file.

    When I'm working with my team I would like to lock some artboards in a collaboration file. This way I can guarantee that those artboards will stay unchanged but my colleagues can still see my progress and copy elements.

  11. The ability to turn a Flow into a Component

    We often have to design complicated components and in the end find out that we are unable to accomplish what we set up to accomplish without having to create multiple art boards. However, if we can take a collection of art boards, or a certain Flow, and turn that into a component, that'll be amazing!

    Editing the Flow would update the component.

    Art boards have the big advantage of seeing all your states together which will speed up the build. In the current implementation we have to click through all the states to see if they have updated correctly and…

  12. Cycle through tagged artboards

    When designing a feature, it is many times necessary to jump around the canvas from one art board to another. Many times those boards are physically far away in the canvas, requiring tedious zooming up and down to locate and view them.

    Now, it would be really nice if one could leave placeholder tags around the canvas in those places that are relevant for the feature you are now working on. Then, using some kb command (like Alt + Q, like in Quick), you could cycle the current view between those canvas places, keeping the same zoom level.

    Alt +…

  13. Save character style with background, padding, border and margin

    Hi there,

    it would be great to have the option to add in any 'Character style' text background color, padding, border, and margin and then have the possibility to apply them to any inline text element.

    Cheers and thanks

  14. Turn off Responsive Resize when scaling proportionally

    Dislocation when jumping to width and height in proportion

    When the layer is "Path", regardless of whether "Responsive Layout" is checked or not, the proportional scaling is normal.
    When the layer is "Group", the "Responsive Layout" is checked by default, and the position is misaligned when the height is adjusted in proportion. Turn off "Responsive Layout" and the scaling is normal.
    Hope to improve! !

    等比例跳转宽高时错位
    1. 当图层为“路径”时,无论是否勾选“响应式布局”,等比例缩放正常。
    2. 当图层为“组”,默认勾选“响应式布局”,调整等比例高度时错位。关闭“响应式布局”比例缩放正常。
    望改进!!

  15. Magnetic scroll

    A possibility to set some magnetic/anchor points to the scroll could be really great. By setting these points the scroll could stop or slow down to stick to some contents in preview mode.

  16. Force Touch trackpad support in design surface

    What's really nice in pages and Mac, is the pressure senstive trackpad.

    In pages, you can press deeper (force click) than a standard click:
    - on a group, to quickly open the group and automatically select the object in the group. (or in other words, skip the double-double-click to get into the group to select the item in the group)
    - on an image, to instantly crop it

    It would be great if this was implemented into Adobe XD as I find myself clicking about 7 times to edit something within a group.

    Another nice touch that would be nice…

  17. Add border as saved character style in assets panel

    Add an option to edit the border of text in a character style.

    Currently, if you create a new character style where the text has no fill but has a border, you can't go back into that same character style to edit the border properties.

    And when you try to apply the character style to new text, it has the border but also adds a fill.

  18. Add preset for Galaxy S20 to Welcome Screen

    Adobe XD has iPhones for UI design and prototyping. I'd love to see the S20 as well since I can also design for Android eventually with a good layout.

    Thanks for your feedback! You can already set a custom artboard size in the Welcome Screen. I’ll adjust this particular request to reflect your request for a preset.

  19. Feedback when removing linked assets with dependencies on other docs

    If I have document A which has assets from document B linked to it, and doc B also contains assets from document C, I cannot remove doc C from doc A without first removing doc B.

    It would be great to have some type of UI letting me know that when I am trying to remove doc C from doc A, by hitting the x from the search dropdown in the assets panel, that it is not working because it is actually imported by doc B, or at least that it is being imported by another document in general.

  20. Add "Behance Case" and "Behance Story" to Social Media Presets

    I would love to see Behance Case and Story (for posting on desktop) in the social media presets as I always forget what the sizes are.

    This would help me create Behance cases faster which is, in a way, part of the social media elements.
