  1. Alias, Size, and Custom Tokens available in XD

    It would be great to have the Alias, Size, and Custom Tokens available in XD for when I'm designing. Currently my color tokens only show the global versions, and I can't add additional swatches if they share a hex value. We don't want developers using global tokens if an alias or component token exists, so it would be great to have these available to me as I design.

  2. Choose which specific component to add to CC library

    1. The ability for a designer to choose which component to add to CC Library.
    2. This is valuable because when we publish to the CC Library, it publishes ALL the components. It would be nice if we could pick & choose which components to publish as not all components are ready to be published to the CC Library and shared with other designers.

  3. Clip content instead of masking

    It would be good if an option could be put in all forms or at least when several elements are grouped that would make the content that we put inside it clip the content so that it would not be seen from the outside, just as artboards do. It seems to me something primary that should be because having to create a mask with the work that it gives just for that is a lot.

  4. move "deactivate font" at the bottom of the context menu

    Hi,
    Please move "Desactivate font" in the context menu of a font style to the bottom of the list.
    I think the most used item is "modify" and it should be more practical if it was in first position

  5. "Scroll To" anchor inside Scroll Group

    The feature to link buttons that scroll to anchors in artboards is great! I think the next step would be to allow us to "Scroll To" not only objects on the artboard but also objects inside scroll groups that overflow the artboard.

    With this feature we could create internal navigation menus that allow the user to easily explore the content of an overflowing container by jumping from anchor to anchor.

  7. [Mac] Switch documents while in full screen mode

    Hi -

    I'm new to XD, but think I'm getting the hang of toggling between files that are open - since there are no pages as there are in Sketch. I like your Command + ~ keyboard shortcut very much for accomplishing this.

    However, what I don't like is when a project file window is maximized, you can't execute the command, I believe - only when projects you are toggling between are in more reduced windows frames.

    I maximize my projects for size, to be able to see more of the contents of a project. So, giving me such functionality…

  8. Image component instances are a reference to reduce file size

    When it's necessary to place the same image many times throughout a document, it should be possible to create a master component that stores the heavy data so that the instances can reference it. The instances would only use a small amount of disk space.

    I was surprised to find that XD does not utilize such optimization.

    When designing a small portion of a larger environment (eg a plug-in for other software) I'll often just use a screen shot for context. This means one or a small set of screen shots will be used many times throughout my document. Instances…

  9. Allow "Replace font" tool to replace fonts with same name

    There is currently an issue with XD that if you install the Creative Cloud version of a Font, that was previously installed on your Windows machine, then XD will consider that you're using the old version of the font and warn you that all fonts are missing.

    Actually from a technical perspective I understand "Why", however what is infuriating is that the "Replace font" tool itself doesn't understand that we installed a new version and that when we select the new font to replace with in the dropdown, it should replace with the new version of that font.

    Because the…

  10. Share button on artboard in design mode is too easy to hit

    The Share button that appears at the top of the selected artboard is super annoying. I have clicked on it 100 times accidentally when I want to rename or move an artboard :( And it directly generates a new link! Horror. If you wan to keep this function - please move it somewhere else. Prototyping mode or actually the Share mode fit this button better.

  11. Update text real-time in layers when changed on the artboard

    When a text layer is created, the layer name is the same as that of the text. However, when the text is updated or made a copy of, the new layer's label in the layers panel remains the same. It needs to be updated in real-time as per the text on the artboard.

    Right now, it is very confusing to look at the same text-labeled layers in the layers panel.

  13. Consistency in click behavior throughout the interface

    It is a source of daily/hourly frustration that clicking on the icon portion of a layer will open it while the only way to open an artboard is to double click the icon (just to mention one). This is only one such inconsistency, but it's very frustrating to have layers expand when I'm only trying to select it as the first of a multiple selection while at the same time, clicking anywhere on an artboard from the list will only select it. In this latter case, one has to both double-click and do so in a small hitbox.

  15. Make Library Elements NOT Duplicate When Used in Other Libraries

    Finally having libraries is nice, but the organization is still difficult to maintain for larger organizations. I have my libraries split out based categories. It seems easier to keep the XD files smaller. I have components, typography, colors, and icons. I plan on breaking out components to be more specific.

    The problem is if I apply a color to a component, or if I apply a color to a text style, then I have multiples of styles / components in the document where I'm using all of these libraries.

    This requires multiple files to be updated anytime a change is…

  16. Merge different components, overriding one of the selected

    Sometimes I start ending up having 2 different components that are doing the same thing, I would like to be able to merge both into one single component, making easier to keep track of all the main components.

  17. selected object's name and type in property inspector

    Could show a breadcrumb, or at least a name and a type of the currently selected object at the top of property inspector? You could always rely on the layer panel to find it out, but there are times when you really want to keep other panels open.

  18. Relocating master components

    Sometimes you need to reorganize your design system files. Once you have created a master components, you cannot move it to another file, and you are stuck with the current file forever.
    It would be great if you can just move your Master Component from one document to another.

  20. Switch keyboard shortcuts for Save As and Save As Local

    this is bad UX!

    Command-Shift-S

    the standard keyboard shortcuts, which you also know from other adobe products, should save the file locally and not to the cloud.

    Command-Option-Shift-S

    the extended keyboard shortcut can save the file in the cloud.
