  1. Convert symbols into equally named group when ungrouping them

    Create a group out of some elements, convert it into a symbol and then ungroup the symbol instance. The result will be that you have the elements in the group all standalone instead of getting back your group.

    Solution: When ungrouping a symbol instance convert it into a group named by the symbol's (current) label. I experienced that it is more often the case that you want to keep your element compositions grouped but only change some detail on it for specific purposes.

    At the moment you have to group things twice and name the outer and inner group the…

  2. Object blur with hard edge

    Currently the 'Object Blur' extends the blur outside of the object's width/height.

    It would be great to have a blur option to have a hard edge instead, so if the blur continues off the bounds of the object it would not be visible (eg only blurring the interior content, not the edge).

  3. Install UI kit of the artboard type you're using

    Can it be integrated with Adobe Sensei in future? That will surely automate few things for the end users

    1) UI kits can be automatically downloaded and installed within XD. Suppose a user is working on the android artboard, he will get all the android related UI kits on the go.

    2) Specific UI elements can be searched by name and instantly applied in the design system while working, it will surely save time when one had to find specific UI element in a huge document.

    Think of a side panel of UI library integrated with Adobe Sensei doing all…

  4. Transparency in hex code

    I need color in 8-digit hex code (with transparency). And the color code should be displayed in Design Specs too. And it would be great if first two digits of alpha channel to stay a bit apart visually for easy perception, but not be divided with space to correctly copy/pasted

  5. center on repeat grid

    Centering items on boundary box of repeated elements in the repeat grid

    The items in the repeat grid have controllable gutters, but centering an object like a button on the grid aligns it to the center of the grid's enclosing box instead of the objects within it.

    It would be great to have items center on the objects if there are an odd number of objects, or the gutter if there are an even number of objects.

  6. Consistency for New Art-board Size

    Currently when you're in a file and try to add a new artboard it automatically defaults to adding an iPhone size screen. This should change to default to the current art-board size.

    This issue is particularly frustrating when you're using a custom art-board size as I need to manually change the art-board every-time I add a new one.

  7. Maintain layers from Illustrator

    Illustratorとの互換性について

    Illustratorで作成したデザインをXDにペーストする際、
    レイヤー階層が保持されるようにしてほしいです。
    (デザインや指示を、レイヤーに分けて記載している為)

    上記と併せて、
    表示/非表示の切り替え(目玉マーク)がやりやすくなると有難いです。

    About compatibility with Illustrator

    When pasting a design created with Illustrator into XD,
    Let's keep the layer hierarchy.
    (Because design and instructions are described separately in layers)

    Together with the above,
    I hope it will be easier to switch display / non-display (eyeball mark).

  8. Add a right-hand handle to point text

    It'd be nice to ALSO have a right-side handle for point text, with adjustment anchored to top + left.

    The existing bottom handle that's anchored to top is a bit awkward for me.

  9. Ability to zoom in on Assets Pane symbol thumbnails

    It would be nice if we could zoom in on the "Assets" pane. With a high resolution monitor, it can be very difficult to see some of the smaller assets that are designed for mobile. I currently have to drag them into the canvas where I can zoom in to see which is which.

  10. Select and resize different elements preserving its position from their own centers

    Select and resize different elements proportionally while maintaining a fixed placement for each of them.
    When selecting different elements, the action of increasing them is linked to the overall positioning of the entire selection, so when increasing the selection the objects leave their original positioning.

  11. Open/close panels by clicking on the edge of the panel

    It would be nice to switch ON/OFF the assets layers panel by clicking the left edge of the XD window beside the current buttons.

    I find myself switching the assets on / off depending on work size displayed on the monitor

    ( the opera browser has such edge )

  12. drag and drop material gallery

    I'd love to see a pre-existing material gallery combined with materials I've added myself over time. Icons, buttons, etc. With a search engine of course ..
    Just drag and throw into your project.
    In the project itself, the icon will appear as a symbol. Independent from the material gallery and editable

  13. Switch between the Layers and the Elements panels with one same shortcut

    Right now the shortcut for the Element panel is CTRL + SHIFT + Y (on Windows) and CTRL + Y for Layers panel. I always get confused what combination I have to use in order to switch between the panels because I constantly change in which panel I am. Since the panels are displayed in the same flyout and at the moment there are only two panles it would be super super awesome to just switch between the panels with the same shortcut. Like when I am in the Layers I press CTRL+Y and I see the Elements. Then I…

  15. Snap to center of gutter / add option for guides in center of gutters

    Would be ideal to allow the user to add additional guides in the center of gutters, so that when you're designing something with no gutters, there is still a guide to snap to. Really badly described, but hopefully the attached will explain it better.

    Either that or the guides could have an invisible snap point in the center of the gutters.

    Am I the only person who sets grids up like this in PS?

  16. Lock properties of an object

    When I make a symbol out of an object, I should be able to lock certain size properties. For an example, if I have a standard button saved as a symbol, instances of that button should have always the same height but with variable widths. In that case, I would lock the height attribute of that button so on resize only the width is changed.

    This can help with complex symbols too where some dimensions cannot be changed or the symbol will be distorted so the designer could lock all of them to ensure that future use does not distort…

  17. Keyboard shortcut and improvements for context menu

    To speed up work you could press for example "C" key and you have acces to context menu under your cursor. It could show different options for different types of objects.
    For example:
    1) Shape / shapes - menu contains last used colors (alt clicking on color applies it to border), align, and other tools. (example image attached)
    2) Text - menu contains styles, fill with lorem ipsum, text alignment etc
    3) ...
    It would be super awesome if you could customize that menus.
    Another idea is to maybe rebuild/add to right click menu to be more context aware and…

  18. Highlight objects that use a selected color in the assets panel

    I want to select all the objects that use a particular asset like a color or font. If my design has gone crazy and I have assets that are close, like 23px and 24px titles that I want to merge it would make that easier. With colors, I may not want to edit the Asset, I may want to change all the corporate red to the corporate blue. It would help with finding fonts in a file too, like in Illustrator.

  19. style "based on" feature similar to InDesign

    Styles/assets still need a lot of work but one feature I'd like to see added sooner rather than later is the ability to based one style on others like you can in InDesign. Make them better if you can because even ID's "based on" feature can be improved.

    Basically what I'd like to see is the ability to set a style (body copy for instance) and make separate styles based on this for perhaps different colors (white on colored box for instance). If I need to change the size, font, and/or style I would do it in my base style…

  20. Add numbers to the image selection from CC Library

    When added images to the repeat grid from my CC Library, I'd like my selected images to have a number show the order I have selected them in. Since they will fill into my repeat grid in that order, I'd like to double check the order prior to dropping them over.
