  2. 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.

  3. Reusable symbols / master objects

    It would be very helpful to have symbols in order to have reusable elements that can be updated in one place and have those edits instantly take effect in all instances/artboards in the design.

    I’m happy to say you can now use symbols in the November release of Adobe XD!

    Thanks to everyone who voted on this — it honestly does make a difference in making this happen sooner.

    There are lots of ways we could expand on this initial set of symbol features. Please let us know your opinion by upvoting follow-up suggestions like these:

    And as always, feel free to file new suggestions if you have other ideas that aren’t posted in UserVoice yet!

  4. edit pathfinder shapes

    Editing a pathfinder ( Add, subtract, intersect, etc.) would be beneficial to create the perfect shape without building new shapes or paths. Example: location pin - If the circle within the teardrop is off by 2px, I can select the circle shape and move it instead of selecting anchor points.

  5. Paste SVGs from Sketch files correctly

    Paste SVGs from Sketch files correctly. Right now you can't paste an icon from Sketch directly into Adobe XD. What you get is the rectangle with the bounding box, not the actual SVG you wanted.

    In our July update, we will have direct copy/paste from Sketch to XD via PDF on the clipboard. SVG import will likely still give you better fidelity going from Sketch to XD. We have made improvements to the import with every release, so, please try it again.

    1) In Sketch, do “Copy SVG” from the context menu
    2) Paste into XD.

  6. Color swatches

    Introduce swatches so I can keep colors consistent. When a swatch is updated every instance of the color changes.

  7. Shape fills: gradients

    <Note: original suggestion has been edited to add links to separate breakout suggestions, to keep the list fine-grained>

    Add fill support for :
    - Pattern : Pictures (browser or download from link), ... --> see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15672075-pattern-fill
    - Linear gradient --> DONE!
    - Radial gradient --> see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15671976-radial-gradients
    - Angular gradient --> https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15902767-angular-gradient
    - Noise fill --> see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15672078-noise-fill

  8. Support symbols import from Illustrator


    1. 0.5.0.4 Beta

    2. Steps to reproduce:
      Create an AI file
      Draw an circle on it (any object, really)
      Drop a symbol on the same artboard
      Select both items
      Copy
      Go to XD
      Paste into XD
      Observe only the object comes over, not the symbol.


    3. Expected Result - Both items should appear in XD


    4. Actual Result - Only the object appears, not the symbol

  9. Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)

    This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.

    Dear XD Community -

    I’m excited to announce that we have shipped a new version of Creative Cloud libraries in XD that allows you to:

    1. Add assets from XD to CC Libraries
    2. Brings in the full functionality of CC Libraries in other CC Apps such as Photoshop and Illustrator into XD
    3. Allows you to consume XD components in other Apps such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator

    To learn more about the new Creative Cloud Libraries improvements, please check:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWuA1y79AT8
    and
    https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/cc-libraries-xd.html

    Please give it a try and share with us your feedback on areas that you would like us to further improve upon.

    Thanks,
    Sherif

  10. Image cropping / repositioning within shape mask (after dragging bitmap into a shape)

    Provide the ability to reposition/move images within masks.

    If you make a mask via Object > Mask With Shape, then you can double-click into it to reposition the image (or other content) within the mask.

    However, if you drag an image file onto a shape, it gets masked by the shape and you CANNOT reposition the image or adjust the cropping. It is auto-cropped to fill the shape when you resize it, but you don't currently get full control of the cropping.

  11. Warn if missing fonts when opening document

    When opening a document there needs to be a warning if the fonts used are not currently active.

    At this time it involves a lot of guess work to remember which fonts a used in a specific project to have the active before opening the document.

    thanks!

  12. Icons collections

    Everyone uses icons. They're everywhere so you spend a lot of time using them during design. Usually you need some external project opened with those icons and copy-paste them etc.

    Would be good to have some kind of built-in way to use imported icons (or any asset actually)

    As of know you can copy and paste items from Illustrator and from browsers. You can also import SVG from Sketch and from Finder. Could you change the title for this item to Font Icon support? If that is the case. Thanks.

  13. Mirroring mobile app

    It is super important to live view your design as you work.

    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!

  14. Blur

    I think it's quite obvious.

    Would be good to have blur option

    Also:
    - Bluring everything below some element is quite popular (like iOS menus)
    - Blur should stay solid on edges of element (quite often it fades there)

  15. Round to Pixel command

    XD could really use a Round to Pixel command. Yes, I'm pulling this straight from Sketch, but it's awfully useful. The command simply rounds every anchor point to the nearest whole-pixel value, eliminating fractional pixels.

    This feature has been added in our November update (version 0.6.2): choose Object > Align to Pixel Grid to tweak the X/Y/W/H so the object(s) are crisply aligned with the pixel grid. You can use this command with a multiple selection or with groups selected to align multiple objects at once.

    Note: aligning to pixel grid does not always mean the X/Y/W/H won’t have fractions. For center-stroked shapes (lines and Pen tool, mostly), sometimes the X/Y need to end in .5 to keep the stroke crisply aligned on-pixel.

    I see some people in the discussion thread here are asking for snap to pixel “by default.” Adobe XD should already do that, with very few exceptions (see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010/suggestions/16962847-resizing-multiple-selection-or-group-loses-pixel-alignment). If you’re encountering other situations where objects you created in XD are not pixel aligned by default, please file a new bug here in UserVoice.

    Thanks everyone for all your feedback and…

  16. 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

  17. Show measurements between objects using hotkey

    Holding a hot-key like option (⌥) would display measurement guides between the selected object and other objects. Similar to how Sketch handles this now... http://www.sketchapp.com/learn/documentation/10-canvas/3-measuring.html

  18. Zoom Tool

    Rather than fixed zoom amounts, a Zoom tool (in the toolbar - z to select it) would be a great addition - allowing marquee style zooming

    Hi everyone,

    just wanted to let you know, that we have just shipped the zoom tool in the July update of XD.

    In addition to zooming with Alt+Mouse Scroll or Pinch-to-zoom on trackpad, you can now access the actual marquee zoom tool in the toolbar via the loupe icon (Z shortcut) or the temporary zoom like in PS and AI via SPACE+CMD, that allows you to do panning and zooming together when navigating the canvas.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Read more about the July update.

    Cheers,

  19. Add Gradients to appearance panel

    Allow users to add a gradient to a shape instead of just fills.

    When importing a shape with a gradient from illustrator it currently makes the shape invisible…

    As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve delivered Layout Grids in the November release of XD. We’d love specific feedback on Layout Grids as we continue to grow, so I’m closing this feature request. If you have specific additional functionality you’d like to see in the Layout Grid feature, please do file it as a new feature request in the Design feature area!

    Thanks,

    -Elaine
