  1. Variable / no padding on one of the sides

    The padding tool is great, but for some cases, it would be great to have a possibility to leave it undefined. Example: I have a component that has a background and a text in it. I want to use it in a way that the background will take all the available space on the right of the text, regardless of the length of the text inside. Now I will not be able to do it otherwise than manually adjust the padding for each instance of this component.

  2. Once zoomed out, only allow selections of artboards

    It would be reasonable to expect that under 5% zoom one would want to select (only) artboards and not objects.

  3. Hide my activity from others collaborating on the layout

    It would be amazing if you guys can manage to add an option that allows designers to hide their activity (while working) from other collaborators.

  4. Allow Component States in repeat grid

    Let's say we want to add a Radio Group and use our Design System Radio Button Component for that. Currently it's not possible to set one of the components to the selected state.

    As a workaround we can create the list with the repeat grid, then ungroup it and change the desired item. But that can't be how it's intended to work.

    ps: I feel bad for lodging a Feature Request days after you released such a great feature. It sounds lI'm ike complaining instead of being thankful - thats not the case, the component states are awesome,d thank you…

  7. Text styles to reflect breakpoints

    If you're designing a responsive website the likelihood is you'll be looking at everything from 320px all the way up to 1500px.

    If you could group text styles under a breakpoint and somehow assign that to an artboard size, so when you add text to that artboard it automatically knows what size it should be.

    ie You have a 320 typography folder. You copy and paste the h1 from the 320 to the 1280 artboard it would automatically resize.

    The alternative being you set up your typography separately, looking at breakpoints the same way some CMS do. Assigning H1-H6, Body…

  8. Move the Share icon from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else

    Move the Share icon in the design mode from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else, I am ending up creating too many unwanted links accidentally while trying to move the artboards around. I have to replicate the artboard and delete the original to get rid of an accidental link.

  9. Retain components states when copying from main and pasting in new file

    Many repots on this forum say you can right click a component to make local, so that you can retain the states of the components in this blank file. 80% of the time, that option does not show for me either directly from the component right click, or from the assets panel. See attached. When I tap unlink, it ungroups the components and states are lost. Lose lose. Please advise.

  10. The incompatible problem of chinese text underline

    Why is the text underline function of xd always incompatible with Chinese characters? Do you think it is unnecessary to optimize for the Chinese? My version is 40.0.22.12 (Currently the latest).

  12. Pre-Composed Animations

    When creating loading animations or other interactions that require multiple screens to prototype. What if those animations/screens can be pre-composed similar to how we can pre-compose in After Effects. This way, all the of the artboards that were used to create the animation can be consolidated into one board that can be linked to a button or other objects as an interaction.

  13. Global layout grid for specific artboard sizes

    Hello, I would find an option to assign a global grid super helpful. One could apply the values at the beginning and if they would like to change that grid in the future it could apply to all artboards of the same size. Right now, I have to manually go through and edit each grid if I want even the slightest change in values. I have found doing this takes a lot of time and effort.

  14. Horizontal stack with fixed width

    Being able to fix the width, when stack is active, then on adding / removing items the padding should be distributed evenly between the element.

    Will let us recreate the same logic as the "display: flex, justify-content: space-between", useful for app development like navbar that always have the same width.

  15. Embed text so that it's not replaced by a fallback font

    (Summary in English) If a font is not installed, we should show text as if it were installed, and only falling back if edited. The behavior of fonts should be the same as for Photoshop.

    テキストレイヤーを触らない時には該当フォントがなくても表示が崩れないようにしてほしい

    テキストレイヤーについて、Photoshopでは該当フォントがインストールされていなくても、レイヤーを編集しない限りは表示が崩れないのですが、XDだと該当フォントがない場合には別フォントで表示されてしまうため、Photoshop同様に表示が崩れないようにしてほしいです。

  16. Fix background fill

    When I use overlay type animation to go to another artboard, for example with a modal window (slide left, slide down, ... ), I want to be able to fix the background fill.

  17. Adjust values in the property inspector using relative values

    On the transformation panel; height / width .. if I write +10 or -10 adds or subtracts from the original value.

    btw: pressing the ESC key causes the input editing to end :)

  19. Change global color only on selected artboard

    Today we are able to save a color than change it on all artboards.

    I think it would be interesting to have a function similar to illustrator but only for one artboard or more (if selection is possible). If it is possible to select the change on background and/or border, that would be awesome too.

    An example, I design a web site or an app and I want to create a dark template only for one artboard for demonstration. So I duplication my first artboard and change the color. With this functionality, we could gain time and be able to…

  20. Color variation support in repeated grids

    Ability to change individual item colors in repeated groups, in the same way you can change text. Perhaps with a similar system of dropping a text file of hex values to change them.

    Alternatively, the ability to have component states be different within repeated groups would be helpful.

    For example, I have a health meter in a table, shows a heart in red, yellow, or green. I can have each as a component state and in a repeated grid, select the individual items I want to change for variation WITHOUT having to ungroup. I'm forced to ungroup all the time,…
