  1. Paragraph styles

    In order to make global typography changes, it would ber very useful to have paragraph styles as part of the feature set. Bonus: export CSS from these paragraphy styles.

  2. Show text elements associated with a character style in the Assets panel

    Style Guide - Rollover Highlighting

    With the release of v. 0.8.22, when you rollover a style in the "Character Styles" listing, it should highlight all elements in the project that use that style. Inversely, if I click on an object that uses that style, it should highlight the style.

    The current implementation means we have repeat entries if two usages share the same stylings, but could deviate in the future, because the use case is different.

  3. Typographic features

    • can't edit any part of text separately . Try to give different weight,style,size or color any piece of text, this changes whole text.
    • can't kern any text
    • can't give a line height *this is vital
    • can't reach glyph

  4. Select behind/select by path only

    Would like the ability to be able to select a object/path behind another with a cmd+double click (?) as per indesign, or be able to 'select by path only' like illustrator

  5. Select multiple items across different groups

    Shift+Click allows to select multiple items.
    Cmd+Click allows to select inside a group.
    Cmd+Shift+Click would be nice if it selected items across different groups.

    It's very useful to change details (i.e. color) across multiple items inside groups (i.e. icons).

    Thanks!

    This feature is now available in the March release! If you don’t see an update, select the … icon in the Creative Cloud desktop app and select “Check for App Updates.” If you have further feedback on this feature, please feel free to file a new ticket!

  6. Support math operators in number fields

    It will be nice I can use that 200/2 = 100 directly in a numbered field just like any other Adobe App. (/ and - and * and +)

    As of our June release, you can now use math operators in numeric fields! If you don’t see the update, open the Creative Cloud desktop application, select the … in the upper right corner, and select “Check for App Updates.”

  7. Unbury the Update Link command

    I use the Update Link command a lot! It has now been buried under Publish Prototype; more clicks away instead of fewer. I believe that his command is a signature experience for this application, and so it should be brought forward rather than buried.

    It would be great for me to have a dedicated control that let's me update my prototype with one powerful click.

    Please look at the attached image I which I have capture my thoughts around this feature.

    If anything, the previous design should be put back in place.

  8. Spacing Before or After Paragraphs

    Would love to have the ability to adjust the spacing before or after a paragraph as InDesign and Photoshop. Right now I can change the line height, but there needs to be another setting to adjust spacing between paragraph blocks.

  9. Radial Gradients

    Add Radial Gradients support. Let's discuss.

    (Btw: Linear Gradients are now shipping. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12925683-add-gradients-to-appearance-panel)


    Note: radial gradients are shaped like concentric circles. If you're looking for gradients that sweep around like the hands of a clock, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15902767-angular-gradient instead!

  10. Flexbox functionality (Smart Layout)

    Basically the same function as flex has in CSS.


    • Justify: Space Between

    • Justify Space Arround


    • Direction: Column and Row


    This will make is easier to spred icons or text in a container.

  11. Do not snap to grid

    I'd like to have a key binding that would not snap to grid while I'm trying to position an item. The location I need might be close to a grid line, so it would automatically snap to it, but I'd need it to be juuuuust off.

  13. Save to the cloud

    Since Xd just closes at will, with no warning, and we are now used to working in the cloud where our work gets backed up in this scenario, for the love of all that was once your calling, use the cloud services you have running massively on my machine to do some good for just the programs I am using. Focus and quality people. You can wikipedia those words. </troll>

    In our April release this morning, we’ve introduced Boolean groups to the platform! To update, check your Creative Cloud desktop application. If you don’t see it, click on the gear in the CC Desktop application and select “Check for App Updates.”

  15. Creative Cloud File Improvements for XD File Types

    Adobe XD version 0.6.34.3 Beta on macOS Sierra 10.12.5

    .xd files that are saved in Creative Cloud don't get versioning. The tab "Activity" is missing completely. Other file types (like .psd) are working fine.

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to let you know that you can now preview, in real time, your #AdobeXD designs and prototypes, on iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) or Android phones (Android tablet support will land soon). Make changes to your design and see it reflected on all the devices you have connected. Add wires to your prototype and play with it to polish the experience, all within the same workflow.

    View all the details here (blog post and video): https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/september-update-of-adobe-experience-design-cc-preview

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
    Be part of XD’s journey on mobile devices, this is just the beginning.

    Really looking forward to hearing your feedback!

  17. Copy and Paste top of list is aggravating

    It's very annoying anytime I copy/paste an item within a group or not, that it pastes it into the top of that group in my panel. Instead of right above the item I have selected. If I want to clean up my panel I have to constantly move my items down where I want them after pasting.

  18. Rough Wireframe Toolkit

    It would be great to have a 'sketch' UI toolkit (similar visually to Balsamiq), to allow for creating a wireframe with a focus on the content and workflows, rather than on execution of design and style (or the ability to toggle between the 2).

  20. Override text or image fill on a specific instance of a reusable symbol

    NOTE: originally this request asked for the ability to override many different styles, not just images and text. If you want to override other styles, please upvote:

    Symbol overrides are now available! Download the June release of XD today to get access to bitmap and text overrides (as well as the Apply command, which will apply your changes from the selected symbol to all other symbols).

    If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon and select “Check for App Updates.”
