  1. Paste SVGs from Sketch files correctly

    Paste SVGs from Sketch files correctly. Right now you can't paste an icon from Sketch directly into Adobe XD. What you get is the rectangle with the bounding box, not the actual SVG you wanted.

    In our July update, we will have direct copy/paste from Sketch to XD via PDF on the clipboard. SVG import will likely still give you better fidelity going from Sketch to XD. We have made improvements to the import with every release, so, please try it again.

    1) In Sketch, do “Copy SVG” from the context menu
    2) Paste into XD.

  2. Use ALT/Option key + click and drag to duplicate object in stack.

    As an Adobe Xd user that uses many stack groups, I would like to quickly duplicate individual items within a stack.

    See video attached for example:
    1. Outside of stack groups the default behavior of holding ALT/Option key while clicking and dragging an object is to duplicate it.
    2. Holding ALT/Option key on an object within a stack group does nothing.
    3. (Workaround) Copy / Pasting an object within a stack group with Command+C & Command+V duplicates the object in the correct location.

    This is 1 of 2 minor bugs I've found with stacks, but I think I'm only finding…

  3. Outer Margin for Groups and Components

    The new padding feature is cool, but a little too limited. I’d like for it to be able to adjust padding for the outside of groups/components in order to help with building design systems.

    For example, when I build a website, a page is often made up of smaller sections (components). I would like to be able to define margin on those components so that each one has an even amount of spacing between the next. That way if I update the height of any of those components or change content that affects its size, components around that one will…

  4. Ability to designate font points vs. pixels

    Since our developers code our websites in pixels, we need the ability to change the font style from points to pixels.

  5. XD Character Style/Colors Swatch Hit Area too small (Assets Panel Grid View)

    Currently you have to select the Colur icon/block or Ag style icon to apply character or Colour style, if you click anywhere else in the character style block it does not apply!!!
    The more intuitive and i think previous versions had this, is to make the entire character style capsule clickable. I run a 5k screen setup so the icons are pretty small.

  6. Ability to label assets within XD

    It would be helpful if you were able to label the assets (symbols, colors, fonts) like you can in the Library panel so that you can easily tell which asset is for which feature in your project. For example, the ability to label a font choice as "Header" or "Subtext".

  7. Eye dropper fill tool

    Why did you move the eye dropper tool inside the fill dialogue box? It now takes two clicks to access it instead of the original one click. With a tool that is used so frequently this is not a good thing.

  8. Select and change the shape of the same color to another color together, instead of select shapes one by one again.

    When I decided to change the whole prototype design from one color palette to another. I cannot change the same color of all the shapes together. I need to select same color shapes on each page one by one. This is so slow.

  9. Unbury the Update Link command

    I use the Update Link command a lot! It has now been buried under Publish Prototype; more clicks away instead of fewer. I believe that his command is a signature experience for this application, and so it should be brought forward rather than buried.

    It would be great for me to have a dedicated control that let's me update my prototype with one powerful click.

    Please look at the attached image I which I have capture my thoughts around this feature.

    If anything, the previous design should be put back in place.

  10. 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?

  11. Add multiple symbols from the panel to the canvas

    Would be great if we could add multiples symbols at once rather than adding one by one. Maybe let grouped items be imported to the symbols section altogether.

  12. Direct selection tool for nested objects

    In Illustrator, the direct selection arrow allows me to select an object inside a group without having to select the group. When I have nested groups this can become a laborious process. This should also provide a way to select individual objects contained within different groups.

  13. shortcut to switch between two window or cancas

    It would be nice to have shortcut key for switching between the two windows when open. for example when i have one project open and then i open for some iOS and android UI it opens in new window which is really annoying to switch between the the two window.
    for example in photoshop when i press (cmd+ ~) it switchs between the windows without using mouse click.

  14. Vectorize Text

    I noticed that the text box around text can be centered/aligned itself, but the text inside it is always at the bottom of the text box and not centered, making it hard to center/align text with other objects.

    For example, if you create a rectangle for a button (see image), and add in a text box with some text that says something like "button," and center both together vertically and horizontally, the text will be slightly lower than center because the text is not centered inside the text box.

    Some have already posted the idea of adding alignment tools, but…

  15. Delete points on a shape to create a line

    When deleting points from a shape, the endpoints still connect and the object remains a shape rather than being able to become a line. Important, for example, for designing charts and graphs such as donut charts broken into sections.

    It you have one or more artboards selected at the time you choose File > Export, the button in the save dialog box won’t say “Export All Artboards.”

    The easiest ways to select an artboard are:

    • Click the title of the artboard (you can shift-click to select multiple artboards this way)
    • Drag a marquee that fully encompasses one or more artboards

    You can tell an artboard is selected when its title turns blue.

    Here’s a quick screencast that shows both ways of selecting artboards: http://imgur.com/a/nKQyE

  17. Text Weights

    Need to select if the type is bold, regular, light etc inside the text box
    Does not help in design to make the whole text box one text weight

  18. Clipping Mask

    The current implementation of "masking" is missing a key feature... clipping masks.

    I've attached a file to help give a better understanding of what I'm referring to. Thanks!

  19. "Unlock" object

    To unlock a locked object on a layer, we have to go to Menu > Object > Lock

    It would be great it says "Unlock" if the object is already locked.
