  2. Material design and iOS UI kit

  3. Opacity 0% keyboard shortcut

    It would be awesome to have a keyboard shortcut to quickly apply 0% opacity to elements.

    As an example, I do this often to keep elements on the page and use them as anchor points in prototypes, despite them not being visible. #ghostbutton

    Thanks for your time! :)

  4. Version Control - store history/timeline of revisions

    It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

    In this week’s release, we introduced document history for cloud documents, which enables you to review previous saved versions of your document within a window, and label and preserve these versions in perpetuity. If you have suggestions for improvements on this experience, please do file them as separate tickets!

  5. Scaling a group should keep objects on pixel grid

    When you resize two objects, even if booth have the same size, they will resize to a value out of the pixel grid, with decimals. (see video attached)

  6. Keyboard Shortcut for Eyedropper

    Please add a shortcut for the Eyedropper. From the document listed here: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/keyboard-shortcuts.html there doesn't seem to be one at the moment.

    Thank you.

  7. CC Libraries: Increase asset preview size, sort, and custom background

    Please, add functionalities to CC Libraries like:
    - change file preview: large icons view with name, details view with names and other information;
    - possibility to sort the file by name, date, last modified,....;
    - possibility to have a default or customizable background to turn on and off;

    I would like to put on your attention the worst case for me: the large icons view works fine only with coloured icons, not with white icons, because of the white background (that depends on the artboards) doesn't allow to me to see a white icon, and without the names of the…

  8. Allow user-entered margins and padding around text boxes and graphic/shape bounding boxes

    There should be an option in the panel to increase the size of the bounding box and the way it snaps to the grid and content around it. The side panel (where user enters text size) should have a way to pad and add margins on all sides of a box or only certain few. This would translate better in the design specs as well as it would get designers in the mindset of a developer more explicitly.

  10. Reorder assets within the Asset Panel

    Manually drag-n-drop to sort assets in the Assets window

    Problem:
    Assets in the Asset window are not always sorted per expectation.
    Example-1: If during a project I create a tint of a certain color, I may want to place that swatch next to its parent color.
    Example-2: I need to sort my color assets in accordance with our style-guide and have the primary prior to my secondary colors.

    Solution:
    Be able to drag-n-drop assets in the Asset window to sort them manually.

  11. Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

    Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

    At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

    Thanks!

    Best regards,
    Guy

    In the latest release of Adobe XD, you can now write colors, character styles, and objects to CC Libraries. Check it out and let us know what you think! Please feel free to file individual tickets for additional features you’d like to see in this area.

  12. Override styles in a symbol (allow symbol differences)

    Right now, you can override text and bitmaps in a symbol. I'd like to be able to override appearance properties like opacity, fill color, borders, shadows, and font style.

    Hi All,

    We’re excited to announce that with our May release, we have introduced Components (previously known as symbols). Components are design elements with unmatched flexibility that help you create and maintain repeated elements while varying the instances for different contexts and layouts.

    You can create a master component to define a reusable element, such as a button, and you can change any of its properties to customize instances of that element (Size & Layout, Style and Appearance, and Structural overrides). Changes you make to an individual instance are specific to that element, but changes you make to the master propagates to all the instances where the property hasn’t been customized.

    Components now could also be responsively resized with the same powerful capabilities of responsive resize baked in.

    Finally, you could link components across documents to maintain a single source of your components using the Link Assets feature or simply…

  13. Save symbols to be used across multiple projects

    Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

    Hi Everyone!

    With XD May release, now you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    Please give it a try and let’s us know what you think

    To learn more about this feature check out:

  14. Fit Textbox to Text

    I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

    This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

    You can currently fit area text to its content by double-clicking the bottom area text resize handle.

    It works both when the text is shorter than the area text box and when the text is larger than the area text box. When the text is larger than the box and truncated, the bottom resize handle will turn red.

  15. Add Search field to Libraries

    There needs to be a way to search within libraries.

    I have a library that has 750+ icons in a library and no way to search for what I am looking for.

  17. Open from your computer

    Can we get "Open from your computer" in the mac file menu. It is painful to go have to click twice to open files.

  18. Set Border Radius Value on a Box

    When I'm creating a button and want to add 4 px rounded corners to it, instead of guessing what 4px looks and dragging the cursor like I would like to be able to enter that the corners should be 4px in the sidebar near where the height and width are set.

  19. Scale/resize symbols individually

    I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

    Please let us scale the symbols

  20. Paste above currentyl selected layer instead on top most position

    Currently pasting something is always placed on the top most position, that should be changed. Instead pasted elements should always be positioned above the currently selected layer.

    Thansk in advance.
