    You can place your main component anywhere in your canvas, and it will zoom there when you “edit main component.” If you delete your main component after you’ve edited it, it’ll put it on your canvas so that you can edit it. I’d like to understand what you’d prefer the interaction to be like if you’re not happy with the current experience!

  2. Promote component state to main component

    It's possible to reset the state of subcomponents to the status of the master component. Somethimes Iam editing subcomponents in a way that I like the design of them more and I want to adapt all other components accordingly. For this I have to do all changes for the master component again. I would like to have the option to create a new master component from a subcomponent or reset the master component to the state of a subcomponent.

  3. Do not resize layout grid when resizing artboard

    Take note from Sketch, where you can actually set a specific size of the grid and grid elements. In XD I have to do all kinds of mathematics just to get what I want out of the grid, and then it turns out it's responsible and IT CAN'T BE CHANGED! When I want to change the size of the artboard the Grid moves along and changes instead of staying in place with same parameters.

    Why it still isn't fixed? Stop adding all kinds of fancy animations that don't matter in real life and please fix the basics!!

  4. "Variables" to use on any value (like distances)

    I saw there are already several feature requests about variables, but none of them seemed to be exactly the same.

    I seem to spend quite some time placing elements on the screen to ensure distances between them are just like we want them.
    Lets say for instance that the page is divided into sections, and each section starts with a Headline. The headline has a 80px margin to the top of the section. After the section content, there is again a 80px margin to the bottom of the section.
    It would be great if this value (80px) could be a…

  5. Replace all occurences of one component with another

    I occasionally come up against a situation where I have created two components that I realize should have been a single component.

    When this happens I must repeatedly highlight the redundant component on the canvas and manually replace the component.

    It would be great to have a way of simply replacing all occurrences of the redundant component.

    In an ideal world, this function would be a smart replace where object attributes from the replaced component instances were applied to an object in the new component instance where its name and type matched.

  6. Image placeholder style on an object

    A checkbox on the properties that when checked adds an X on the shape turning it into a wireframe photo. The X can be colored with the stroke color

  7. Functionality to jump to an artboard quickly

    When you have a lot of artboards, it can be difficult to find the one you're looking for. A solution to this was implemented here, allowing a user to search through elements, including artboards.

    This is good, but one of the main products of having many artboards is that you have even more elements. This means that when you search for something, it shows you matching artboards, but also matching everything else. Including text whose content may match (which there is sure to be a lot of, since designs often re-use the same lexicon across many different elements).

  8. 2 -sided shape faces for 3d transformed objects

    I created a cube with basic shapes but when I rotate them the item in front seems to disappear giving the shape a hollow feeling.

    I think if we give the options to enable 2 sided shapes then this can be avoided and create some really cool 3d shapes animations.

    This will help us create complex 3d shapes in XD it self for e.g.cubes.

  9. Apply hex color in clipboard to selected object

    When I paste an hexadecimal color outside of a text zone, i expect the selected object to take the background color specified in the text, not to paste the text as raw text

  10. Move the preview button away from notification area

    On macOS, notifications come from right to left right below the menu bar on the top right. This means that whenever you get a notification, the preview button and the surrounding interactions are covered.

    It's of course frustrating that you ever so often need to close notifications to interact with the preview button. And what's really frustrating is all those times when you are about to click on the preview button, but a notification suddenly gets inbetween and you accidentally open upp Messages, Calendar, Slack or any other app that you got a notification from instead of previewing your design.

  11. Fix Position While Scrolling for Elements in Component States

    Inside a component state, select an object and a "Fix Position While Scrolling" checkbox appears on the right menu where it usually is for base-level elements on an artboard. When selected, the element stays fixed on the artboard while the rest of the component scrolls.

  12. View CSS directly within XD

    You shouldn't have to share to a link in order to see your CSS Specs... would be nice to be able to see and copy them from within XD

  13. blend mode on image does not work when grouped into 'Vertical scroll'

    If you have multiple images with 'Darken' as a Blend mode (for ex) and then if you select all of them and make it as a Vertical Scroll, the blending mode from all the images doesn't work.

  14. Delete unused components

    Please add a feature that will allow the user to remove unused components from the library. Currently, I have to click on each component and check if it is on the canvas. Bearing in mind that there are several hundred of them in my file, it becomes very troublesome and causes a mess in the library. A similar option is available in e.g. Adobe InDesign and is very helpful when working with a file.

  15. Replace long hyphen with standard hyphen in default Artboard names

    When I create an artboard it adds a default name with some type of long hyphen character. This character has problems with other applications. For example, Windows doesn't really like it. It causes artboard export to crap out sometimes. Gmail doesn't like it because when I export a mobile design and gmail it to myself to view on phone (cause I want to), my device sometimes doesn't want to download the attachment. If I change the hyphen, it works. As a user, I don't really care if it's Windows or Gmail or my phone, it's just unnecessary headache. And you…

  16. Keyboard shortcuts for changing component states.

    With a component selected, a keyboard shortcut to cycle through its possible states would save a lot of mousing between artboards and the LHS panel. This is particularly true for screens with multiple components. If they could all be selected and reset to default and cycled through their states, this would be a helpful addition

  17. Trim & Crop the dimension of a Group (Cmd + Resize) without messing the Layers & Constraints inside

    Literally, Figma, Framer, Sketch, InVision Studio and whole lots of others have this.

    It lets you resize a Group or Frame, without messing it's child layers Constraints, Positions and Responsive Design. Kind of like an override for resizing Frames / Groups.

    Just implement it just like them : Cmd / Ctrl + Resize on any direction.

    Basically for quickly masking child layers inside a Group, without really needing a Mask layer (which sometimes doesn't work to be inside, if your Group is with Stacks)

    Also to make the Prototyping on the Canvas much neater, for Drag Groups that goes beyond…

  18. Select by color

    Please add to Adobe XD (select fill color & select stroke color), like in illustrator!

    If you add it, We don't need to edit icons in other adobe products like AI or PS, We can easily edit it on XD!

  19. Assets panel list view should allow multiple columns of objects

    Hello,
    one thing I loved on Assets panel was the possibility to change the width of the panel to show multiple columns of assets including for each asset a small tile and its name.
    Today in the new version of library it's not possible to have the list view in multiple column... For me it's a regression.
