  1. Illustrator support for CC libraries

    Seems like we're missing CC Library support for Illustrator assets. I'm sure you're on it but didn't find another comment on it. I can imagine you were under the gun to show off more library integration for MAX but vector symbols are really where it's going to be at for our team's needs. (That and JPG exporting, but that's been covered).

  2. Save to the cloud

    Since Xd just closes at will, with no warning, and we are now used to working in the cloud where our work gets backed up in this scenario, for the love of all that was once your calling, use the cloud services you have running massively on my machine to do some good for just the programs I am using. Focus and quality people. You can wikipedia those words. </troll>

  3. Recenter and zoom to an artboard from the artboard list

    I want XD to recenter and zoom to an artboard that I select from the artboard list.

    Why is this valuable to you?
    I currently spend a lot of energy manually zooming and panning between artboards. What if we simplify and streamline all this activity to just a couple of clicks?

  5. Option to select a particular layer

    Well, I'm using Adobe Xd for a week. Previously worked on Photoshop. I've started loving xD.

    But I am facing difficulties when selecting a layer which is under another layer.

    It's really annoying always "hide" the first layer then select the 2nd/3rd layer. After that finding that "Hide" layer to unhide.

    Photoshop has an option for that. Please see attached.
    Thanks :)

    We’re pleased to announce that the iPhone X artboard is now available in the November release of Adobe XD. If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of the application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you’re looking for improvements on this feature, please do file a new request!

  7. Eyedropper tool for the assets panel

    When creating colors in the Asset panel, it would be nice to use the color picker tool and not have to have the Hex value handy. Not all mock-ups are color sensitive so this would make a nice quality of life addition.

  8. Display style name in Creative Cloud Libraries

    Hello,

    The Creative Cloud Libraries are a great addition! Thank you for that. We're looking forward to seeing more of the assets usable.

    However, there seems to be missing the NAME of the style/color. Each of the assets in my (very extensive) library has a coded name and is shared with many designers and the name of the library asset is essential for the understanding of what asset is what (especially for character sizes)

    Thanks!

  9. Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

    Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

    At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

    Thanks!

    Best regards,
    Guy

    In the latest release of Adobe XD, you can now write colors, character styles, and objects to CC Libraries. Check it out and let us know what you think! Please feel free to file individual tickets for additional features you’d like to see in this area.

  10. Color Themes support for XD CC Libraries

    I'm on W10. The library doesn't work at all. When I open the Xd my library items are absent. The only thing I was able to retrieve was some of my color library but all my vector files and color schemes is not available. I actually get sections I have never ever created! Like a section named Shapes. In the library item section I get the text "unsupported elements".

    So is everything I have in my CC library unsupported in Xd? I thought the main purpose of the library was to be able to use the items cross apps? Seems…

  11. Reorder assets within the Asset Panel

    Manually drag-n-drop to sort assets in the Assets window

    Problem:
    Assets in the Asset window are not always sorted per expectation.
    Example-1: If during a project I create a tint of a certain color, I may want to place that swatch next to its parent color.
    Example-2: I need to sort my color assets in accordance with our style-guide and have the primary prior to my secondary colors.

    Solution:
    Be able to drag-n-drop assets in the Asset window to sort them manually.

  12. Show text elements associated with a character style in the Assets panel

    Style Guide - Rollover Highlighting

    With the release of v. 0.8.22, when you rollover a style in the "Character Styles" listing, it should highlight all elements in the project that use that style. Inversely, if I click on an object that uses that style, it should highlight the style.

    The current implementation means we have repeat entries if two usages share the same stylings, but could deviate in the future, because the use case is different.

  13. Fit Textbox to Text

    I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

    This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

    You can currently fit area text to its content by double-clicking the bottom area text resize handle.

    It works both when the text is shorter than the area text box and when the text is larger than the area text box. When the text is larger than the box and truncated, the bottom resize handle will turn red.

  14. Do not snap to grid

    I'd like to have a key binding that would not snap to grid while I'm trying to position an item. The location I need might be close to a grid line, so it would automatically snap to it, but I'd need it to be juuuuust off.

  15. Rough Wireframe Toolkit

    It would be great to have a 'sketch' UI toolkit (similar visually to Balsamiq), to allow for creating a wireframe with a focus on the content and workflows, rather than on execution of design and style (or the ability to toggle between the 2).

  16. Display wireframe dimensions and colors for developer handoff

    It would be extremely valuable to have a dimension view or developer view where the size and color code for each element is visible. All text or other distractions would be hidden and the user would have the option to reorganize the auto populated layout of dimensions. This feature would definitely put Adobe XD way ahead of any competitor.

    There are more variables to consider, but this is an great idea to build off of.

    Cheers!

  17. Import Artboards from Illustrator

    I would really love in XD to have an option to import artboards from Illustrator. Working in UX with teams who create mockups in Illustrator, it would be a nice option to see a workflow where I can import my artboards so I can then prototype within XD.

    Currently, I copy and paste in from Illustrator, which works, but it doesn't retain data sometimes such as drop shadows, which is an issue for some within the team.

    In the most recent update (Oct 15, 2018), you can now open your Illustrator files in Adobe XD, while retaining artboards, layers, and editability.

  18. "Guideline Mode" (Design Guidelines)

    Add a "Guideline Mode" in addition to the prototype mode and design mode. This would be a content area of speficications like color schemes, used fonts, symbols and other visuals etc. It would be good to have a basic content template for the most typical things like color palette etc. but make it also possible to add custom content.

    This functionality would help to work on the design in teams and to communicate the design fundamentals to customer and developers.

  19. Allow to name elements with unique ids

    A very important feature missing from AdobeXD is the option to name elements.
    The biggest strenght of AdobeXD is in the SVG output. I can design a website and use the svg assets directly in my project as UI elements. The only problem is that it lacks an option to name elements and symbols and to preserve those names as xml attributes in the exported svg file. Selecting those manually every time is a waste of time. Using names would allow to update assets in projects automatically when you edit those in AdobeXD.
    Please add the option to name elements…

  20. Creative Cloud File Improvements for XD File Types

    Adobe XD version 0.6.34.3 Beta on macOS Sierra 10.12.5

    .xd files that are saved in Creative Cloud don't get versioning. The tab "Activity" is missing completely. Other file types (like .psd) are working fine.
