  1. Transform Text Size - multiple at once

    I want to scale groups of text or text with images in one group and make all of them big or small at the same time.

    I don't want to scale each one of them in order to get the size I'm looking for.

  3. Hide all panels

    Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
    (like F in Photoshop)

    Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!

    I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.

  4. Change number values in active field using scroll wheel

    It is terrible to re-type eg. font-size values using keyboard.

  5. Keyboard shortcut: Resize shapes using Cmd+arrows

    Allow to resize shapes using cmd+arrows. It's one of the best Sketch features, it's really useful for pixel perfecting.

    Cmd-up arrow to increase height, Cmd-down to decrease height.
    Cmd-right increases width, Cmd-left decreases width.

  7. Change image only in single repeat grid item

    Would be nice to be able to change images of repeat grid items. At the moment if I drag & drop on a repeat grid item, all instances will change …

    Here’s how it works currently:

    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid where all grid cells show the same image, the image will change in all the grid cells.
    • If you drag multiple images onto a Repeat Grid, you will set up a repeating sequence of different images. For example, if I drag in 5 images at the same time, the first 5 grid cells will show different images and then the pattern will repeat (e.g. every 5th grid cell will show the same image).
    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid that already has a repeating sequence of images, you’ll replace all copies of the image you dropped onto. For example, if you had a sequence of 5 images repeated 3 times (15 total grid cells), and then you drop a single image onto one grid cell, you’ll see 3 copies of that…
  8. Set width and height in percentages

    When you enter a width for an object, also be able to set the size using a percent.

  9. Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

    It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

  10. Hold spacebar to move shape while drawing it

    While drawing a shape, you should be able to hold the spacebar to adjust its position. I use this shortcut all the time in Photoshop and Sketch.

  11. Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

    I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

  12. Choose reference / anchor point for transform origin and X, Y display

    Being able to change the reference point from the upper-left to center or lower right or whathaveyou is so useful in other Adobe apps. Having to do everything with top-left x/y is a pain when trying to position objects by their center.

    Choose point by clicking 9-grid icon

  13. Fonts preview

    When you choose font for text, would be good to have some preview about how it'll look.

  14. Bind the hand tool to the middle mouse button (another)

    It's just so much easier and intuitive to navigate this way

    (information lost when I edited the title: this is the behavior in After Effects)

    • Also including custom bindings to other mouse buttons

  15. Draw rectangle with preset proportion (e.g. 16:9)

    This is the very crucial thing in ui design to create consistent layouts.

  16. Use CSS properties / classes to specify object appearance

    Add unique CSS properties to object properties.
    Things like Margins, Padding and un-even borders are not common for design apps, but it would be great to define them per object in XD, honor them in the design mode, and export them as part of the object css,

  17. Double click to leave isolation mode

    It's completely annoying when I trying select area in isolation mode but instead selecting some objects in the background due to Xd exiting from isolation mode.

    Please make Isolation mode same to Ai isolation mode: double click on object to enter isolation mode, double click out of object to leave isolation mode.

  18. Direct selection tool - adjust points in multiple shapes at once

    I need direct selection tool to adjust groups this way:
    1. I created rectangle and placed icon inside with 10px offset from right side.
    2. Grouping rectangle with icon.
    3. Now I want to resize this group and save 10px offset, but this offset changes proportionally.

    I can easily do this in Ai using Direct Selection tool. So, add Direct Selection tool, please.

    You can direct select elements by holding CMD when clicking on items that are part of groups. Marquee selecting anchor points is landing very soon, so that you could select parts of your rectangle. Do you expect a different behavior? Did I understand your request right? Thanks for your feedback.

  20. Design with Data

    I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

    I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.
