  1. Enable quick saving for Local File Systems

    Since the new update you have this super unnecesary complicated hotkey for "saving locally" but no hotkey for quicksaving your file locally.

    Probably the best option would be to have this in Xd settings to change your default space for saving like in Illustrator.

  2. Highlight all styles on the canvas that are not added to the assets panel

    I often design without selecting my colors from the color assets or forget to use a font from the Asset panel. After some time and a lot of artboards I have no overview anymore where I have to adjust this. It would be good to have a way to highlight all styles (colors, fonts) that are not currently added to the asset panel, so I can easily select these elements and change them accordingly.

  5. Component override lost when copying between files

    Our preferred workflow is to have a Xd-beta file for new development. When changes here are implemented the design gets moved to another file.

    However, when copying artbords that contains components with overrides, these overrides are lost when the artbord is pasted in a new file. (both Xd-files are connected to the same master component file)

    Would love if this could be fixed.

  6. Determine an align rule for stacked group elements

    Hi,
    We've been waiting for a long time for stack feature and very very good to see its first step.

    Problem: 60x60 6 component instances are stacked as horizontally with 3 px gaps between them. When we tried to swap an instance with another which was 30x30 stack didn't make it aligned vertically.

    Solution: Stack groups have to have align determinations. If stack group is horizontally we should able to select its default alignment (top, vertical middle, bottom) Off course it would be great if we could determine its dimension fixations like autoAlign tool do (Anima) but for now I…

  7. Line .5 increments

    When using Lines, the automatic .5 lengths/spacing make it super annoying to work with, especially as a lot of design frameworks are speccing borders/lines as %transparencies. With XD as it is, I have to manually delete the last three digits in the width and/or in the X/Y values to deliver a polished product and it feels like an unproductive waste of time. Maybe all lines can be dragged to .5 increments rather than 1 pixel increments, or they smart sense borders and borderless divs and stop before then. Idk what the answer is exactly, but it's always been an annoying…

  8. Stacks: support both horizontal and vertical at the same time

    Horizontal and Vertical options are nice, but in development there are many cases where you need to use both, especially for any items that wrap. I've included an idea to offer both options that will make stacks even better.

  9. Responsive Resize Can't be Toggled for Component States

    If a user makes the unfortunate mistake of not noticing that Responsive Resize is turned on and they make a component with a ton of states, they are now stuck with Responsive Resize turned on for all states. The Responsive Resize toggle is disabled for all component states and can only be edited on the master component on the default state.

    You can turn the feature off for the Default state but that decision doesn't propagate down to all other states and it isn't persistent. As soon as you change the state of the component to another state with Responsive…

  10. Indicator to show the number of instances of a certain component in a document (count)

    A small indicator next to the component name would be great, with emphasis on components that are no longer used in a document to easily adjust of delete themz. I attached a photo of what it could look like.

  11. Branching and merging versions

    It is very necessary to make a version control system available, which allows "commits", "branches" and "merges", and more functionalities, just as version control services do for developers.

    I know there is a design application for this purpose, but every time that application is updated it is no longer compatible with Adobe XD

  13. transpose also text not only image when adapting a horizontal repeat grid from desktop to mobile

    Now only the image adapt, the text will copy the first one. Text should also adapt. see attached file for example. 2 and 3 disappear.

  14. Dynamic/Smart Text Objects

    Our team would benefit from "smart" text objects. Our largest need for this is for a text object to reflect the hex value of a color from the color assets. However, it would also be valuable to have a text object's content reflect a certain date, a series of dates across a repeating group of objects, today's day of week, today's month, etc. This would make our prototypes appear more dynamic for our clients. Currently, we manually type all of this information across multiple artboards and have to update it from time to time as the project moves through design…

  17. Please make artboard resizing also resize contained elements

    If I create a rectangle that coincides with the artboard boundaries (as in an outline), and make sure responsive resize is on, it doesn't resize with the artboard itself.

    This seems like an important case, to treat the artboard resizes as affecting anything directly contained with responsive resize on.

  18. Make non-apple devices first class citizens too

    The first thing I see on XD is a choice to create a new design. The predefined items have a multitude of Apple devices and a token "Android" or "Custom" option.

    The real world mostly use non-Apple devices. There are many different sized android phones & Tables, Chromebooks, Windows Surface etc. It is about time Adobe products recognised this and treated non-apple hardware as a first class citizen and not an after thought.

    Support what our customers need, not what you personally prefer.

  19. Select text to change color, selection highlight is temporary hidden

    When selecting a text to change its color, I would like to be able to see the text without the selection, so I can compare its new color against the background color. Right now I have to make a guess since I don't see the background, but I see the selection highlighted. Can you hide the selection highlight while I am choosing a color? Thank youuu!
