  1. Lock asymmetric radii on rectangles

    When I use radius 0 10 10 10 for example, I wish to have option to lock the corners separately, so when I use handle to adjust the locked one doesn't change.

  2. Reveal Components in Assets – filter to those assets only

    When user selects "reveal components in assets", the panel should filter to those components only within the assets panel.

    As it works now, it highlights all of the components in the asset panel without filtering the other components, and if you have many components, it makes it very difficult to find.

    I realize the components are highlighted in blue, but when the mouse cursors over the components, they're highlighted with a gray/black stroke, making it very very frustrating to find the component you're looking for.

    By filtering only to the component(s) selected, it would be far easier to find.

  4. Arrange tools and their properties in separate Panels

    It should be possible to open tools and properties in separat panels like in every other Adobe Software ...

    So you can - for example - look at layers and components at the same time, having the font properties always open, having a different panel for pathfinder options etc.

  5. Adding text alignment in character style edit

    When I edit an existing character style, I don't get to edit the text alignment that is left, center or right. It would be great to add this feature.

  6. Choose layer as the mask

    "Mask with Shape" always selects the top object as the mask, but sometimes we want the bottom object to be the mask.

    The selection order, or an additional buttom, should provide the option to choose who's the mask.

  7. Font-weight sort/arrange by weight (thin to regular to black)

    The font-weight should be displayed in the right order as follows
    -regular-italic-bold-bolditalic
    and in larger families
    -thin-thinItalic-extralight....-light...-regular....-medium....-semibold.....-bold...-extrabold...-black
    Right now it is arranged in a random order which is bad experience for designers to search the entire list to sharp shoot the one we want.

  8. Changing a color in the assets group should update locked items

    Locked items currently won't be updated while locked, but the only reason i personally lock items is so that they are not clickable and i can select multiple assets on top.

    However if the locked layer is using a global color i believe it should change with all my other assets. If i didn't want it to change color i would manually change it to something else.

  9. Background Blur should not include artboard edge

    The background blur effect creates a white halo around entire artboard when you have full bleed background graphics. The effect ignores pixels that exist beyond the artboard.

    TLDR: Could you give the background blur effect optional access to the pixels beyond the artboard, please?

    Thanks!

  10. Change the default order of ungrouped repeat grid items

    When ungrouping a repeat grid, the grid items are ungrouped in such a way where the grid items are now reversed. I like to have my objects sorted from top to bottom to match how they appear on my artboard.

    It would be great to update this behavior to sort the ungrouped items from top to bottom, or provide a setting to change the order. Maybe a checkbox/toggle next to the "Ungroup grid" button.

  11. Selecting all layers in an area by clicking and dragging

    Clicking and dragging to select all items in an area of an artboard (then deselecting any unwanted layers) would is so intuitive - instead of clicking and dragging only to find all you're doing is dragging around a background image.

  12. Implement Ctrl+H AKA Viewing and Hiding Extras

    When i'm designing with a grid and guides, I find super useful the photoshop " hide extras " shortcut.
    I would like to see it in XD ( not having to hit the preview button )

  13. Linked SVG images

    I like to imported linked SVGs into my project. I'd like them to behave the same way as linked images, meaning I can easily update all instances of the SVG.

    My use case is we are using a lot of SVG icons in our design projects. When the icon is changed, we would like to be able to quickly update all screens with the new icons. With the way XD currently treats SVGs, I would have to manually update all occurences of the icon OR transform them to a component, which would spam the component library with hundreds of icons.

  14. Preview blend mode by hovering over selection in property inspector

    • When selecting image appearance mode - (i.e Normal, Darken, Multiply e.c.t) have the image update when hovering over the menu like in photoshop.

    • Rather than having no preview and having to blindly select before viewing how it would look. then undoing over and over

    I’ll leave this open for now (and edit it to reflect the issue with blend modes), but you can cycle through blend modes with Alt+Shift+plus and Alt+Shift+minus while the object is selected. Hope that helps!

  15. Linked Assets icon hiding 40% of the view of color palettes in Grid view

    The linked assets icon hiding 40% of the view of color pallets in Grid view.
    - It's really frustrating to see that portion
    - It is difficult to identify if the color pallets belong to similar shades

  16. Link CC Library with files

    When I open up files, then go to CC Libraries, you usually need to look through the list, this might be quite long, to find the one you're after. Fair enough, if the one you've recently worked on appears in the 'most recent' section, but what if it's one you haven't used for some time?

    So what if you could link Files and Libraries, so when you open the file, the associated library is available in the palette straight away rather than going and finding it? This saves the designer/user a little bit of time. Plus it could work for…

  17. Zoom to selected object after selection from search

    If I'm using the find/search feature to find an artboard, or to find some text on an artboard, it would be great if the search results allowed me to go straight to that found item and also to locate the artboard on the pasteboard. It's a partcilar issue when I have files with a large number of artboards.

    Currently, I get the search results, and whilst I can click and edit the properties of found items in the results, locating the item or even the artboard on which it is contained can be tricky. Some sort of 'Go to' context…

  18. Click on icons in the property inspector to select input field

    Klick on app-icons in the panel should select input field for direct value-change by number-input or arrow keys. This is the same in InDesign/AI/PS … Please make the Adobe apps feel the same or have the same ground features!

  19. Adding (and naming) a component while asset search/filter is applied

    I often create a new component while I have a search/filter applied on my asset list. When this happens, I'm not prompted to name my new component's name (e.g. Component 245) doesn't match my current filter criteria. I usually undo the component creation, clear my filter, and then create the component again to make sure I'm renaming the right one.

    It would be nice if when a filter is applied, the new component name could still appear at the top the filtered asset list even though its new name won't meet the current filter criteria.

    I find it very helpful…

  20. Validator to ensure web-ready SVG export

    I would like to see the option to add filters to svg elements in the design that match the current spec of web svg. Things like color inversions, blurs, etc would be really helpful, especially when designing for the web.

    The reason being often times we as designers may create something that may not be possible unless we export the element as an image. These elements are not always SEO friendly (such as when working with stylized text). However, we can often accomplish a similar effect by using svg filters in the web. So, allowing us to apply these and…
