  1. Define aspect pixel ratio (support non-square pixels)

    Some LCD pixels are non-square shape. For example, displays for industrial devices. In this case, the aspect ratio of the pixel remains close to square -- usually the difference between horizontal and vertical does not exceed 10%.

    But nevertheless, the distortion of the elements due to this distinction can sometimes be seen on the display destination (target) device.

    Propose to add the sizes for non-square pixels, and the simulation display similar to pixels on a computer screen of the designer (whose pixels are square) to display on the screen the designer was the same as it is on the screen…

  2. Insert new art board between two existing art boards

    After creating 10 art boards, I realised that one scenario in the middle was missed out. Now have to make a new art board and insert it in between. But now have to manually move all the art boards. Would like the space between the artboards to be uniform. Sorry if this seems like an OCD :P

  3. Vertical Alignment of text in text box

    Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.

  4. Reset Bounding Box (don't match rotation of shape/path)

    Please implement a ‘Reset Bounding Box’ function for drawn vector shapes. They conflict with alignment and centring.

  5. Use same shortcuts as Adobe Illustrator (or Photoshop?)

    Just in an effort of compatibility it would be nice to have the same default shortcuts (for those used to it) or being able to customize the shortcuts. Thank you !

    Hi Kieran,

    Thanks for your feedback! This feature is already in our backlog – not sure when it will arrive, but we’re aware of the need for it.

    Regards,
    Joe

  8. Display artboards framed by a mobile device outline

    Ability to add a device outline to show context.. would be cool to even create your own device outline (currently I'm designing a UI prototype for a smart credit card, but having to use a mobile screen UI canvas to show the interactions)

  9. Additional Paste functionality

    Don't know if I should file this as a bug or feature.

    When I cut a portion of text from a body of text I expect it to paste into an independent textbox when i hit Cmd + V.

    This doesn't happen currently.

    Additional features associated with this would be:
    - 'Paste in Place' or 'Paste Forward' - which XD does by default.
    - 'Paste Behind'
    - 'Paste Inside'
    - 'Paste In All Artboards

    Given all the ways designers can paste these days why don't we create a paste submenu. 2016, lets make it happen!

  10. Better Anchor Point Manipulation


    • Anchor Points are a bit tough to manipulate. The manipulation right now is too 'free'.


    • Points only align to other points within the same vector object and not boundaries, points or edges of other shapes.


    There should be object and point snapping as well as holding shift to snap to axis etc.

  11. Pixel Preview

    A quick toggle for pixel preview would be much appreciated. Just like the one in Adobe Illustrator.

  13. File Properties for Imported Objects

    A 'Properties' or Meta panel, different from a 'CSS' panel.

    This panel would have information on imported or placed files and their attributes.

    Files would have their source (src) property, original dimensions, size, etc. Maybe even a little thumbnail.

    There would also be a way of changing the linked file, opening source file in associated software etc.

  14. Automatically slide other artboards out of the way when moving / reordering

    It would be nice to be able to precisely swap the position of two artboards by dragging and holding a modifier key. So for instance, if there are three artboards in a row, I could hold CMD while dragging artboard 1, and as I hover between artboards 2 and 3, artboard 2 moves to the left to make room to drop artboard 1.

  15. Emoji in text

    I'd love to be able to include emojis in texts when I'm designing.

    In fact I'd love to be able to include my own icons, pasted into texts, similar to what you can do with indesign!

  16. Change / reset an artboard's size to a stock template size

    When I select an existing artboard, the properties panel at the right should present the list of stock sizes (E.g., Apple Watch) for changing the size, with the current stock size selected if it's there.

    I don't care about the content conforming to the new size (though that would be nice).

    Scenario: I've created a bunch of wires and now want to show selected screens targeting a different device:

    Desired steps: duplicate that artboard, set it to a different stock size by selecting it at the right, resize and rearrange a bunch of stuff in the artboard.

  17. Single-click selects objects inside the currently selected group - without need to double-click / hold Cmd

    Hi!

    I know I can directly select a non-group object no matter how deeply grouped it is by Command-clicking it. But if I want to select a group that's grouped multiple levels deep, I'm forced to double-click my way down until I reach it.

    Double-clicking multiple times in a row has annoying feel of excess effort and sluggishness, probably because the minimum elapsed time the OS needs between double-clicks in order to recognize them as separate events is way too long.

    In other products I use (OmniGraffle, Axure), single-clicking an object or a group that's one level down within an…

  18. Add Anchor Points evenly spaced between existing anchors (similar to Illustrator)

    I posted this on the Adobe forums but realized this is the proper place to post.

    I would like to see a tool similar to the "Add Anchor Points" tool in Illustrator, but potentially with a few more features.

    Along with the normal "Add Anchor Points" feature, It would be really nice to be able to select 2 anchor points, use "Add Anchor Points" and choose how many anchor points to add between the two selected points, equally spaced out. This could also work with selecting more than 2 anchor points, or an entire shape.

    Thanks.

  19. Round corners on path anchor points

    It's currently possible to round corners on primitive shapes. As soon as additional anchor points are added, or a shape is created from scratch using the pen tool, the ability to round corners is removed.

    It would be nice to have this option at all times.
