  1. select state for multiple instances

    When I select now multiple instances of a component I can’t set the state anymore. This is the power of Sketch I still miss in XD and holds me back. Editing everything 1 by 1 in complex UI’s with dozens of artboards and variations is simply annoying. Same for swapping nested components. Currently it’s all or one 😕

  2. Please make ctrl/cmd + double click on text different from ctrl/cmd + two consecutive clicks

    New XD behavior (ctrl + click selects a layer below on second click) causes serious productivity problem for me! Now I can no longer use ctrl/cmd + double click to edit text within a group. Please make a difference between ctrl/cmd + double click and ctrl/cmd + two consecutive clicks. The way it is now, I have to do ctrl/cmd + click, then wait, then do double click to edit text within a group.

  3. Implement Ctrl+H AKA Viewing and Hiding Extras

    When i'm designing with a grid and guides, I find super useful the photoshop " hide extras " shortcut.
    I would like to see it in XD ( not having to hit the preview button )

  4. New feature for Adobe XD in terms of Voice over Interaction

    I am proposing a thought for Adobe XD which inculcates new feature and technology of using voice as source of fast communication.

    “As we can create an interactive prototype with speech in XD, it would be better if we can create our screens (wireframes, visual designs) by using human speech. Human command will work effectively and quickly than creating manually. For example, for creating a square of 50X50 with rounded corners and having stroke of 2 px with some specific color will take some 1 min of time but by using human language same task can be completed within fraction…

  5. Minimap

    Can we please get a minimap so we can visually navigate our multi-artboard design files more easily? Like this Figma plugin:

    Thank you.

  7. On hover tooltip

    On Hover to provide tooltip or pop-over,
    As of now you guys have provided the On hover component/button styling. But we need to add tooltips at times or a mini popover on hover which will be helpful.

  8. Highlight component instances on hidden layers

    Component instances on hidden layers are not highlighting on canvas.

    Hitt the "Show layer" icon, then switch back to the asset panel, the "highlight component on canvas" feature finds 0 results. only highlighted component is visible on the canvas.

    I might accidentally delete instances from hidden layers...

  9. Exporting XD files to Aero

    It would be great if we could import UI made in XD into Aero, since more complicated AR interfaces may require this feature.

  10. Keyboard shortcuts for changing component states.

    With a component selected, a keyboard shortcut to cycle through its possible states would save a lot of mousing between artboards and the LHS panel. This is particularly true for screens with multiple components. If they could all be selected and reset to default and cycled through their states, this would be a helpful addition

  12. Replace component image with different file type

    I have a component that includes a raster image but when I drag an image of a different file type (.ai) from a CC library, it leaves the original raster image and places the vector image on top, leaving the component with two images. I would like to be able to drag and drop new images to replace regardless of file type.

  13. Selective style copy/paste

    When you copy a style, it copies everything. It would be great if there was a paste special style hotkey. When you press this hotkey (or select from right-click), it pops up a dialog where you can pick WHAT you want copied.

    Often, I want the border, shadow styles to copy, but not the fill, since XD uses the fill to add images, then the image gets overridden. This is especially true for a lot of screenshots in product sites and also team icons of profile photos, etc.

    PS. Not everyone wants to create a component for small design tests,…

  14. [Component State] Promote a copy to "Official".

    Hello,

    Sometime in the life of a component a copy becomes better than its parent :). At this moment it could be interesting to promote it to official so it's not necessary to create a totaly new component.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/component-state-promote-a-copy-to-quot-official-quot/m-p/10757274#M19252

    Tks.

  15. Copy Component States

    A newbie here. There might be a way to do this without overcomplicating like i might have done. So:

    I was building a table where i have the family of a product on one row for example "Wood" and it's children, for example "birch wood", "pine", etc.and to separate the "Parent Row" ( please see photo 1 ) which is a dropdown, from the "Child Row" ( please see photo 2 ) i had to create a new component and then build up the states again. Also for the "stock warning" one ( please see photo 3 ) i had…

  16. Need a way to duplicate master component

    It would be great to have a way to duplicate a master component - create a copy within assets panel. If I have a component that has several states and I need to make a dark mode version of that component, I would like to just duplicate that component and make my changes instead of having to recreate it from scratch as a master component.

  17. Do not copy prototype interactions when in design mode

    Since your latest update, prototype interactions are copied when in design mode (I copied the whole artboard). When I paste, I have to remove all the interactions. I preferred having the option by only copying interactions when in prototype mode. It is painful for my workflow with XD.

  18. Ctrl/Cmd + double click to edit text inside a group

    It is possible to do Ctrl + click (Cmd+click on Mac) to directly select an element which is inside one or more groups.

    In previous versions of Adobe XD it was also possible to do Ctrl/Cmd + double click to directly select the text of a text element which is inside one or more groups, so that you could just start typing or do a copy/paste to change/replace the text content of this element.

    Since a few versions the behaviour seems to have changed, so that Ctrl + double click results in an element being selected which is somewhere in…

  19. Font Selection Name case insensitive

    currently when selecting a font you are able to start typing and fonts will filter.

    eg: Trying to select a font named 'DIN' (all caps)

    but if I type 'DI' .... it selects the first font 'Didot' and when I type 'N' my typed selection is now 'DiN' which won't pick up 'DIN' (all caps)

    Solution make the font selection 'case insensitive'
