  1. Esc or Space key to get rid of notification

    When you are trying to delete a componenst off of your Assets list, sometimes you will check if its still on your canvas using the "Highlight on Canvas" option.

    Then the blue notification bar sometimes appears with "0 instances of this component found", which is fine.

    However, you need to click "X" to get rid of the notification every time. Instead of being able to quickly click ESC or something. This makes it hard (or should i say tedious) to do quick scan of the next component, because the blue notification linger around and may not apply to the new…

  3. Spacing between Repeating grids should snap to guides

    If I set guides on an artboard and then create a repeating grid on it, it would be nice if when editing the spacing between the objects in a repeating grid can snap to those guides.

  4. Place Objects on top of the artboard but not related to it

    I have a scenario where I have 3 artboards, along those artboards I have three shapes as a repeating grid; I fill those shapes with images, and now want to place that grid atop an artboard by not part of it. This may seem strange, but in this example I'm recreating a screen, so essentially want to have those three images as transparent to work as guides.

    Currently any object placed atop an artboard becomes part of that artboard, so in my case that repeating grid of images is hidden outside the first artboard.

  5. Linked asset updates should come with approval source note

    It is nice that you can link assets across documents, however it would also be nice to see a notes modal about things like the user that created the change, if the change has been approved an finalized for you to implement, as well as date.

  6. Undo gradient points in color picker while it's open

    When working with the gradient tool modal, if you create, say a third gradient point, and you want to undo that, you can't. But then when you go back to the main screen of the app, select that gradient window and combo the undo request it works.

  7. Double click on text icon layer to edit text (like in photoshop)

    I'm a user from Photoshop and I'm used to double click on the layer Text icon to edit text content in the artboard. I think this should be a good feature to apply to XD

  8. Keep orientation of text on edit

    When I create a point-text or a area-text objects and then rotate them, a bit, and then want to edit the text, the orientation changes back to rectangle, and then back to the proper orientation; this is distracting and confusing. Why not allow the orientation to remain the way the user intended it to be, same as in PS?

  10. Snap to Layout Grid doesn't work with off-pixel objects when dragging from the corner

    When you grab the edge of a box, it snaps to the layout grid when resizing. However this doesn't work when you grab the corner handle.

    I just was able to reproduce your issue, and it looks like an issue with off-pixel objects while dragging on the corner. Thanks for your feedback – I’ll pass this along to the team that owns this area.

  11. Color shades support

    There is a workflow where people work on picking different types of shades of colors as a part of their designs they are working for.
    It would a great asset if the color picker would allow the users to work through it with a better workflow

  12. Copy artboard as raster at 2x

    I make heavy use of the ability to copy an artboard as a raster image, so I can quickly paste images into other apps (Teams, Confluence, Target Process, etc.).

    I design at 1x, but I'd really love it if the artboards were copied at 2x so I can preserve full fidelity when viewing the pasted images on retina screens.

    Any chance there could be an option to copy at 1x or 2x?

  14. Zooming with external mouse (not trackpad) like in Miro -> Scrolling zooms in/out and when holding down scroll cliked - pan

    I got really simple suggestion for scrolling in your app - do as Miro did when scrolling with external mouse.

    Scrolling zooms in/out and when holding down scroll cliked - pan. I think it's a quick win and you will make usage with external mouse muuuuch easier.

  16. Set corner radius for some (not all) corners at the same time

    My natural workflow of setting corner radius is to select the corners of an object that I need and then go to the sidebar and set the radii for them. Sadly XD doesn't show the radius field anymore when corners are selected. Please fix this since selecting an object and then think which of those fields represent which corner it is uses way too much headspace.

  17. Multi-line artboard titles

    It would be awesome if there was a way to allow for large captions anchored to each artboard, that would stay linked when moving/rearranging the artboard.

    Maybe if the artboard title allowed for a new line to be entered (Shift + Return?), that would even help.

    When I'm planning out a feature, I'll frequently add captions above each artboard in huge text with notes as to what should happen in the view. Since my captions are outside of the artboards' bounds, there's no way to link or lock them to that artboard, making it hard to keep everything together when…

  18. Option to keep the color wheel/picker open

    As I'm trying to create colour palettes and quickly apply colours to assets, I find it annoying to keep re-opening the colour wheel.

    Can we have an option to pin it open?

  19. For Fast Scanning, Add Dropdown Arrow for Groups/Folders in Layer Panel to Mirror Other Adobe Products

    Hello,

    Currently, there are no dropdown arrows next to folders within the layer panel. These dropdown arrows are something we see in other Adobe products and have for ages.

    When scrolling through large documents, the folders/groups don't stand out enough for easy scanning.

    Please add a dropdown arrow to the left of the folder like Photoshop has.

    Doing this will allow for faster scanning and locating of groups, as it creates a subtle callout for these special layer panel elements by indenting them slightly.

    Further, adding an arrow is also an appropriate Call To Action for this type of element…

  20. Do not change scroll to the top of multi-selection in layers panel

    I have a very large list of groups, when I select a few of them at random down the list every time I select one from the bottom the panel scrolls back up to the top of the selection, so I have to scroll back down to keep going. It would be great if this worked like everything else where there is no automatic scroll back to top.
