  1. Speed up zoom in/out animation when zooming with keyboard shortcuts

    You can delete/reject this if it's mentioned elsewhere.

    When using the keyboard (Cmd+ or cmd-) and when using Cmd+opt+mouseclick to zoom out, I feel that I'm wrestling XD regarding the zoom speed.

    This for me feels like a stark difference from when I use the macbook's trackpad, It's fast and buttery smooth.

  2. Draw swimming lanes on the canvas

    Would it be possible to create 'swimming lanes' in order to visualize on which level a certain part of the flow/design operates? I've added a simple visualisation of it, just to illustrate the idea.

  3. Pen tool: snap curve control/tangent points to grid

    I use the handles snapping to grid functionality extensively when creating icons and other detail-intensive shapes. This is critical to my workflow.


    Note from Adobe: curve anchor points (the points the curve pass through) should snap to the grid already. This request is about the curve control points (the two handles on either side of each anchor point, with the tangent line connecting them) snapping to the grid; this does not cause any visible part of the path to align to the grid better, it just helps keep the control points organized and makes it easier to match curves identically…

  5. Create shapes in a specific size like in AI and PS

    When I select rectangle tool in photoshop and click in the canvas (or in AI) it shows me a box for width, height and radius etc.

    It would be great in XD especially when creating form elements and buttons.

  7. Drag and Drop a text file with break lines using "\n"

    I have a suggestion about drag and drop a text. How we can put a text with a break lines? I just tried put a file.txt with a string "\n" to try break line. Did you think about it? In case, I have just one field and I will drag and drop a text. Is that clear?

  8. Resizable font family list

    Description: The font family list under TEXT should be resizable, or at the very least dynamically sized to expand to fit larger available screen size.

    Value: A larger list would significantly reduce selection time spent using this control. The constrained size of the list is very limiting, only showing 16 choices at a time.

  9. Visible preview of invisible object (no opacity or fill) when dragging / moving / resizing

    If an object's opacity is set to zero and you then 'alt-drag' it, there's no preview of the new object's edges, so you can't see what you're alt-dragging. Illustrator solved this by using the object's 'Outline mode' preview when alt-dragging.

    Resize/move feedback for invisible shapes definitely could be improved, and we are tracking that issue. As a workaround, you can toggle the fill or stroke on for a moment, adjust the shape, and then toggle it back off.

    If you’re using an invisible rectangle to define a hit area for Prototyping mode, you may also be interested in upvoting https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12931899-actual-hotspots, which would let you more easily define interaction hotspots that don’t match up exactly with the size & shape of any of your visible artwork.

  10. Lock all objects underneath current selection

    An option for locking the objects underneath the selected object for locking could also be considered, which may help at certain instances.

    While 'Cmd+L' locks individual object, 'Cmd+Shift+L' can be assigned to lock all the objects underneath the selected objects too.

  11. Completion hints to help designers name objects/layers

    I know Layer Panel is on the way so I hope this idea will help.

    Naming Layer is still one of the worst nightmare. We forget to name layer and group all the time. We need good naming for organizing and exporting assets but with hundred of layers after the design done, we just cannot complete this task well.

    So I think you should make a new kind of naming process to encourage designers do it as an important part of their routine.

    My idea is a naming box appearing after we add an vector, bitmap or a shape. The…

  12. Change orientation of property inspector W/H/X/Y

    This is very hard to describe in words so please see the screenshot.

    Essentially, let's put WIDTH and HEIGHT side by side in the toolbar interface, and below that, place X and Y coordinates side by side.

    Further, please add the coordinate origin (that little thing that defines where on the object the X and Y coordinates are referencing. The absence of this is a major frustration for me in Sketch and Keynote. (perhaps a power feature, but standard in Adobe apps)

  13. Save custom libraries of shapes/icons to drag and drop

    In photoshop, you can import .csh files that contain a myriad of UI icons and shapes, and then draw them in the same way as a rectangle or ellipse. This has been invaluable as i can simply choose the icon shape i wish to use, and then create it to the size i want. I understand that you can bring in vector objects from illustrator, but it would save time if a "custom shapes" option was added. Perhaps this would allow people to create a material design icon set, or an ios icon set that could be accessed on demand…

  14. Remove spaces from Artboard name when duplicating

    When drag-copying dartboards to create new ones, a 'space-hypehn-space-number' is added to the name. These spaces carry over to the exported files. Obviously this is not good practice as spaces should be used in files intended for web use. Are you planning on removing these in a future update?

  16. Simple layer slider/scrubber to control Z order - like Adobe Comp

    Maybe something like Abobe Comp is enough. It is very simple and useful

  17. Add cursor feedback on hover when holding the Option key

    Holding Option to duplicate an element is missing the cursor feedback from PS / AI (the double arrow) when you are hovering over an element that can be duplicated.

  18. Predefined color books / libraries

    Would love access to color libraries like the Pantone color books as I do use these even in my UX Design and prototypes.


    (Original request: Just trying out the new Adobe Experience Design application and not to thrilled about the mac color picker. Would love to see the photoshop or illustrator color picker, color swatches and access to color libraries like the Pantone color books as I do use these even in my UX Design and prototypes.)

  19. Conditional Repeat Grid contents - different sets of items share different "templates"

    Allow me to have various layout types iterating within a repeating grid. This could be driven from an excel spreadsheet with true or false conditions or some way to indicate for this Data Set, pull Layout X. This would allow me to pull real data and then scrub the data to indicate which layout type to pull for representation. This would include pulling a different layout to accommodate extra data.

  20. Aligning different sized items

    I love the way we can add space between items of a repeat grid. I'd like to see this feature also for items with different sizes. For instance a navigation bar, where every item has a different width. There it would be very nice to be able to "drag" the space between the items to in- or decrease the gap/padding. See the picture attached!
