  1. Assign an object/group to an artboard for auto animate

    If I want to use auto animate to have an object/group move onto the screen from off of it (or vice versa), I have to group it with an invisible object that stays on the screen so that XD knows the object/group is a part of that artboard when it is off-screen. I could be totally missing a way around this but I can't find anything about it online. If there was a way to assign an object to an artboard even if it isn't touching said artboard, that would fix this problem.

    Essentially this makes adding new animations a…

  2. Artboard tool in side bar should be higher up

    Workflow would suggest that the create Artboard tool should not be second to last on the side bar but closer to the top since one of the first things you do is create an artboard.

  3. Character isolation mode to control individual text properties

    1- I know that might not sound like a priority but sometimes when I am using multiple text layers and converting them to paths, I would love to have a character isolation option in order for me to make it easier to then control each character, rotate, reflect or whatsoever on its own. Having nodes once converted to path is great, but I also believe that having an element isolation mode will be very helpful for quicker flow.

    2- Having an option to control the parent anchor point of an object will def come in handy.

    Lastly, not trying to…

    Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you have only suggestion per ticket instead of multiple. I’ll edit this one to focus on the character isolation issue, but would you mind filing the parent anchor point as a separate issue? (Specifically, is this anchor point for the purpose of path drawing, or is it for the purpose of alignment?) Thanks!

  4. modifier key to disable alignment to pixel grid

    It would be nice to have modifier key that you could press while positioning an object to disable alignment to the pixel grid.

    e.g. holding down x while moving a object would let you move it freely without it aligning to the pixelgrid.

  6. Font re-sizing feature similar to Figma

    The resizing is very intuitive in figma
    where I could just press alt+drag to increase/decrease values

  7. Cmd + Z to deselect in multiselect situations

    When selecting multiple objects, it could be helpful for cmd + Z to deselect one by one, instead of undoing the last thing you changed.

  8. Dual window mode to be able to see 100% preview

    In PS it is possible to create another window for the same document.
    It is very convenient when you're designing icons.

    You can work in the first window having like 500% zoom, and preview the result in the second window having 100% zoom at the same time.
    (see the attached image for details)

    Adobe XD totally needs such feature!

  9. Paste Appearance by dragging and holding element over frame

    Additionally to right clicking and selecting paste appearance to drop an image into a frame, it would be awesome if you could drag an image onto a frame and hold it there a second and it will ghost paste it to show what it would look like, then let go and it pastes appearance onto that frame. I find this to be a very intuitive way to paste appearance!

  10. Drag an image into the Welcome Screen to create a custom template with that size

    Instead of manually input dimensions for a custom size, it would be much easier to be able to drag'n'drop a file to the custom size icon so it automatically would adapt the size.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Ctrl+Shift to activate hand tool

    Balsamiq mockups uses the ctrl +scroll keyboard shortcut to zoom in and out. Then by simply adding Shift to that, I can click and drag my canvas around. So Ctrl+Shift+click does the same thing as Spacebar. Why is this useful? I don't need to move my hand from the Ctrl Key over to the spacebar to move around! Adobe XD feels clunkier because it's missing this AWESOME keyboard shortcut. If you don't believe me, try out Balsamiq mockups and tell me that isn't easier.

  19. 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.
