  1. Allow Adjacent/Overlapping Component States

    Currently if you create two component states with adjacent areas they will trigger each other when used even if there is no area which actually overlaps. I've included an example of what I mean in the video.

  2. Option for side scrolling on artboards

    At the moment, artboards can only be set to have vertical scrolling or no scrolling at all - it would be great to have the option to have horizontal scrolling for the entire artboard, as to better facilitate designs for side-scrolling websites.

    I’ll leave this one open, but you can already do side scroll via a group in an artboard. You can set a scroll area on a wide group, and set the scroll mask to the width of your artboard.

  3. Not putting components somewhere

    Everytime I wanna edit a primary component it will be displayed somewhere in the document. I hate that chaos... whats the purpose???

    You can place your main component anywhere in your canvas, and it will zoom there when you “edit main component.” If you delete your main component after you’ve edited it, it’ll put it on your canvas so that you can edit it. I’d like to understand what you’d prefer the interaction to be like if you’re not happy with the current experience!

  4. Do not resize layout grid when resizing artboard

    Take note from Sketch, where you can actually set a specific size of the grid and grid elements. In XD I have to do all kinds of mathematics just to get what I want out of the grid, and then it turns out it's responsible and IT CAN'T BE CHANGED! When I want to change the size of the artboard the Grid moves along and changes instead of staying in place with same parameters.

    Why it still isn't fixed? Stop adding all kinds of fancy animations that don't matter in real life and please fix the basics!!

  5. Image placeholder style on an object

    A checkbox on the properties that when checked adds an X on the shape turning it into a wireframe photo. The X can be colored with the stroke color

  6. TV presets

    I think the presets for TV devices are missing. Even if we can enter them manually, we need to do it every time and use some homemade component for security zone etc.

    An idea should be to extend the preset device to TV screens (720p, 1080p, HD, 4K, 8K and so on)

    Thanks !

  7. Snap points in scroll groups

    Let the user set points (similar to anchor links in artboards) so the animation snaps in scroll groups.
    The scenario is to prototype app icons in several menu pages situation, so you scroll right and left snapping to each page.

  8. Functionality to jump to an artboard quickly

    When you have a lot of artboards, it can be difficult to find the one you're looking for. A solution to this was implemented here, allowing a user to search through elements, including artboards.

    This is good, but one of the main products of having many artboards is that you have even more elements. This means that when you search for something, it shows you matching artboards, but also matching everything else. Including text whose content may match (which there is sure to be a lot of, since designs often re-use the same lexicon across many different elements).

  9. Photoshop / Picasa-Like Spotfix

    When I have cropped certain pictures or screenshots, I want to be able to fix certain things on the spot, the way Photoshop or Picasa allows blemishes to be fixed based on surrounding area.

  10. Mouse path effects

    i'd really like to have the possibility to add effects that will be made with the mouse, like fluid effect (ondulation like water) on an image or a text.

    in my point of view it's very important for creating incredible design and animations and make a website with a strong identity.

  11. Show differences between versions

    When multiple users working on the same file, it will be great if we can see which part is changed or modified.

    It is nice to see other people working on the work area realtime but when someone leave the file and come back, it should show them which part has been modified since they leave. Maybe a special highlight or a mark on changed art board.

  12. Choose which specific component to add to CC library

    1. The ability for a designer to choose which component to add to CC Library.
    2. This is valuable because when we publish to the CC Library, it publishes ALL the components. It would be nice if we could pick & choose which components to publish as not all components are ready to be published to the CC Library and shared with other designers.

  13. Horizontal stack with fixed width

    Being able to fix the width, when stack is active, then on adding / removing items the padding should be distributed evenly between the element.

    Will let us recreate the same logic as the "display: flex, justify-content: space-between", useful for app development like navbar that always have the same width.

  14. Drag padding in stack without double click

    When you select a repeat grid object, you can see pink highlight if you mover your cursor between grids then you could just drag it to modify the padding.

    With Stack, you have to double click to edit padding, which feels unintuitive and inconvenient. 1. You'd easily miss the fact that the particular group is stack enabled so you can drag the padding. 2. When you're working on page layout, you'd be repeatedly double clicking the group especially if you have many objects on the same artboard.

  16. re-set/re-link names of (and inside) components

    once the "name" of a layer of an instance or the main-component has been renamed (aka broken) manually, any future re-namings of the main-component or its "broken" layer will not be executed in the instance.

    this is understandable.

    to reset an ENTIRE element XD has the "reset to main-component" feature - which is great.

    MY IDEA:
    similar to the feature where you reset line spacing by entering "none", there could be a re-set of the name / re-link to the naming of the main-component by entering a "none" as the layer name.

  18. Make Alignment shortcuts accessible with 1 hand (left hand)

    It's very hard to leave my mouse every two seconds to make a shortcut for alignments.

    Shortcuts created to make life easier and speed the work flow but on this situation, it's not!

    Please alignments shortcuts accessible with one hand rather than two hands,

    and Use V for vertical and H for Horizontal
    not M and C

    Thanks

  19. Disable animated zoom on windows

    Please allow us to disable animated zoom on windows. For adobe XD on mac, there isn't an animated zoom but when using the program on windows it smooths out the steps in between each zoom level. Photoshop allows you to turn off animated zoom as well.

  20. Ability to zoom in on library components in the library panel

    When viewing components in the library panel it is really hard sometimes to see the components. Can you implement the ability to zoom in on this panel to see more details of the components that you are looking at.
