  1. Kinetic pan (throw) on Space-drag

    With this enormous amount of artboards which Adobe XD can handle it will be useful to have a kinetic motion for artboards like in Photoshop.
    In Photoshop when you press Space bar and start dragging around it works like a swipe gesture on mobiles — you drag through the artboards with smooth break in the end of the move.
    This feature is now realized on Mac for touch pad. But it would be usefull to have it for "Space+Drag", especially in the future Windows version of XD.

  2. Evenly Distribute Points

    After drawing a line for a line graph with the pen tool I realised that my points weren't easily spaced. It would be great to be able to fix this issue by selecting all of the points and distributing them evenly using the alignment tools at the top right.

    Writing this I realise that maybe I should just turn on the grid tool and space them evenly first time but this may come in handy for other situations too?

  3. Unify scaling of text boxes and areas

    To create this a demonstration of this needed function, do the following:

    Group select a text field with some text in and a text area with some text in, now scale them together. The text field scales as expected but the text area doesn't.

    When creating responsive layouts we need to scale elements collectively, this breaks that workflow. Can you please make them both scale together to ease the workflow overhead.

    Thanks

  6. Canvas - larger pan area (panning stops at pasteboard edges)

    I like the center whatever I'm working on, currently it's impossible to do so with artboards on the edge of the canvas. I'd like to be able to pan outside it. I know you can zoom out, but I want to maintain a certain size for legibility reasons.

  8. Emoji in text

    I'd love to be able to include emojis in texts when I'm designing.

    In fact I'd love to be able to include my own icons, pasted into texts, similar to what you can do with indesign!

  9. Import Microsoft Word docs

    Being able to import copy from MS Word by dragging gand dropping like a .txt file. FYI, rtfs don't work that way either.

  10. Restrict to designing purely with CSS styles/properties, match browser's rendering appearance

    As has been noted for this to be a good web app it will need to fully embrace css and render it accurately.

    However some display capabilities would inevitably require special markup, complex css constructs, javascript etc... in development that would be beyond the scope of this program if this is to remain a pure design app.

    Therefore it would be useful to tag objects or artboards to display in strict mode - exactly according to css properties - or to display in lets say design mode to allow freeform placement of objects which would require additional markup in development…

  11. Pick colors using Saturation or Brightness, not just Hue

    Currently I can only select colors using Hue. If I want to adjust the brightness of a color I need to use the numeric input. It would be nice to allow users to adjust Hue, Saturation, and Brightness visually, similar to the way Photoshop works.

  14. Hold spacebar to move shape while drawing it

    While drawing a shape, you should be able to hold the spacebar to adjust its position. I use this shortcut all the time in Photoshop and Sketch.

  15. Automatically slide other artboards out of the way when moving / reordering

    It would be nice to be able to precisely swap the position of two artboards by dragging and holding a modifier key. So for instance, if there are three artboards in a row, I could hold CMD while dragging artboard 1, and as I hover between artboards 2 and 3, artboard 2 moves to the left to make room to drop artboard 1.

  16. Some SVG gradients are missing

    SVG gradients are not rendered correctly when importing this image in AdobeXD.
    See the reference file with embedded bitmaps to see how it is rendered compared to how it should be rendered.

  18. Pen Tool: snap points to intersection with other path segments (or full "vector networks" like in Figma)

    I would love to see snapping with the vector tool the way they’ve implemented in Figma (figma.com). Love the ability to snap-align points on a path, especially with the temporary rulers that flash during intersection.

  19. Auto resize image to 50% if copied and pasted from a high density screen

    I'm working on a MAC BookPro with high density display. When I redesign existing apps, I take screenshots of small parts of my screen and paste them in XD. Then I recreate the components, icons... using the vector tools.
    When I work with a HD screen, I paste the screenshots and they are scaled 200% (because the OS captures twice more pixels). But it's not relevant in XD, I have to scale it down 50% to get accurate dimensions. I'd prefer XD to detect the screen density and scale it down if needed.

  20. Insert new art board between two existing art boards

    After creating 10 art boards, I realised that one scenario in the middle was missed out. Now have to make a new art board and insert it in between. But now have to manually move all the art boards. Would like the space between the artboards to be uniform. Sorry if this seems like an OCD :P
