  1. selected object's name and type in property inspector

    Could show a breadcrumb, or at least a name and a type of the currently selected object at the top of property inspector? You could always rely on the layer panel to find it out, but there are times when you really want to keep other panels open.

  3. Layout Grid Linked Left & Right Margin

    I believe, this is major bug in Adobe XD, Photoshop Guid Layout is perfect. In this way out layout is not going to be in center. If we use Align Center then there is no use.

    If I enter any value to "linked left and right align" feature, it automatically convert to "Different margin for each section" feature.

    I guess the issue is column width. It need to be calculate automatically.

  4. Once zoomed out, only allow selections of artboards

    It would be reasonable to expect that under 5% zoom one would want to select (only) artboards and not objects.

  5. Hide my activity from others collaborating on the layout

    It would be amazing if you guys can manage to add an option that allows designers to hide their activity (while working) from other collaborators.

  6. Put the tooltips above the mouse not under it please!

    Can you please put the tooltips ABOVE above or above the mouse not under it! This is so annoying. Why would you put tooltips under the mouse so we can't read them? I'm old and my eyes are going and my mouse cursor is big so all the tooltips get placed under them.

  7. List which project documents use a specific component from a library

    The ability to select a component in a library and see a list of cloud documents that include at least one instance of the selected component.

    If that is too complicated a lift, we could settle for a list of cloud documents that contain the selected component in its list of Document Assets.

    Use Cases:

    1. Want to delete a component but don't know for sure where it's being used.

    2. Component has several states and designer can't remember why a certain state exists. Seeing where the component is used will help make that determination. Similar to case 1, this would also…

  9. Text styles to reflect breakpoints

    If you're designing a responsive website the likelihood is you'll be looking at everything from 320px all the way up to 1500px.

    If you could group text styles under a breakpoint and somehow assign that to an artboard size, so when you add text to that artboard it automatically knows what size it should be.

    ie You have a 320 typography folder. You copy and paste the h1 from the 320 to the 1280 artboard it would automatically resize.

    The alternative being you set up your typography separately, looking at breakpoints the same way some CMS do. Assigning H1-H6, Body…

  10. Move the Share icon from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else

    Move the Share icon in the design mode from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else, I am ending up creating too many unwanted links accidentally while trying to move the artboards around. I have to replicate the artboard and delete the original to get rid of an accidental link.

  11. To be able to edit layers on top of a locked one

    If I have overlapping layers and I want to edit one of them, I usually lock the ones I do not want edited/ to move. Using Illustrator, I can draw a rectangle and set it as my artboard background and work freely without it going anywhere. I can't seem to do this in Adobe XD.

  12. Drafts design separate organization

    Old designs isn't less important to us "Designers" from the final ones,
    as it is considered as an evidence about the product development with the process,
    But we too don't like to have a crowd work space with those old designs,
    so we need something like a separate folder named "Drafts" for example so that the workspace still clean and wide while we can return to our old design easily as well,

  13. The incompatible problem of chinese text underline

    Why is the text underline function of xd always incompatible with Chinese characters? Do you think it is unnecessary to optimize for the Chinese? My version is 40.0.22.12 (Currently the latest).

  14. Resize repeat grid cell when adding content to stack in repeat grid

    In the table example shown below, the text element in the third column is set to auto height. All of the table cells are in Cell Group, which was then grouped with the horizontal line below Cell Group to create Row Group. Row Group has stacking turned on so that the horizontal line is always 16px below Cell Group.

    This is all well and good until Repeat Grid enters the picture. If I create a repeat grid from Row Group, set the grid spacing to 16px, then populate variable height content into Column 3, I get the mess shown in…

  15. Force a path into a shape so you can edit it like a shape.

    It would be be nice if there was a right-click option like "force path to shape." Paths do not have the edit options that shapes do.

    For example, when I take a rectangle and change the edges or add new corners, XD automatically changes this to a "path." I've done this both intentionally and accidentally.

    If I want to change this shape back to a rectangle so that I can edit the border radius, I have to redraw and restyle that shape from scratch. It would be really cool if Xd could identify the closest shape and force into that…

  16. Pre-Composed Animations

    When creating loading animations or other interactions that require multiple screens to prototype. What if those animations/screens can be pre-composed similar to how we can pre-compose in After Effects. This way, all the of the artboards that were used to create the animation can be consolidated into one board that can be linked to a button or other objects as an interaction.

  17. Global layout grid for specific artboard sizes

    Hello, I would find an option to assign a global grid super helpful. One could apply the values at the beginning and if they would like to change that grid in the future it could apply to all artboards of the same size. Right now, I have to manually go through and edit each grid if I want even the slightest change in values. I have found doing this takes a lot of time and effort.

  18. Embed text so that it's not replaced by a fallback font

    (Summary in English) If a font is not installed, we should show text as if it were installed, and only falling back if edited. The behavior of fonts should be the same as for Photoshop.

    テキストレイヤーを触らない時には該当フォントがなくても表示が崩れないようにしてほしい

    テキストレイヤーについて、Photoshopでは該当フォントがインストールされていなくても、レイヤーを編集しない限りは表示が崩れないのですが、XDだと該当フォントがない場合には別フォントで表示されてしまうため、Photoshop同様に表示が崩れないようにしてほしいです。

  19. Fix background fill

    When I use overlay type animation to go to another artboard, for example with a modal window (slide left, slide down, ... ), I want to be able to fix the background fill.

  20. Adjust values in the property inspector using relative values

    On the transformation panel; height / width .. if I write +10 or -10 adds or subtracts from the original value.

    btw: pressing the ESC key causes the input editing to end :)
