  1. Color picker should stay active when switching between apps

    When switching between apps, for. example when copying hex from browser to Xd, Color dialog window always disappear and I always have to click on Fill option in Appearance tab to get Color dialog back on. It would be much easier for window to stay open when switching between apps.

  2. Navigation between slides

    I am creating multiple slides at once. I am using it as a storyboard, so to speak. Problem is that I can't move from one part of the screen to the next slide like I normally would as a map (hand). Further complicating the problem is that when I re-size the screen, navigation gets more difficult (can't locate how far in the x and y access things are from each other). I wish the screen was easier to move around on.

    This is possible today: just hold down Alt (aka Option) while dragging one corner handle. In the near future you will also be able to set separate corners from the properties panel, which should help make this easier to discover.

  4. Option/ tool to add/insert an image

    Provide us an upfront tool to add or insert image / images and also option to replace the same.

    Its very important to add icons also .

  7. Expand text to outlines

    Because text does not resize the same way objects do, it would be nice to have the option to expand text to outlines the same way Illustrator does. This would turn text into shapes and allow for resizing/shaping.

  9. Opacity 0% keyboard shortcut

    It would be awesome to have a keyboard shortcut to quickly apply 0% opacity to elements.

    As an example, I do this often to keep elements on the page and use them as anchor points in prototypes, despite them not being visible. #ghostbutton

    Thanks for your time! :)

  10. Scaling a group should keep objects on pixel grid

    When you resize two objects, even if booth have the same size, they will resize to a value out of the pixel grid, with decimals. (see video attached)

  11. Set Border Radius Value on a Box

    When I'm creating a button and want to add 4 px rounded corners to it, instead of guessing what 4px looks and dragging the cursor like I would like to be able to enter that the corners should be 4px in the sidebar near where the height and width are set.

  12. Open from your computer

    Can we get "Open from your computer" in the mac file menu. It is painful to go have to click twice to open files.

  14. Import Photoshop files in XD projects

    Ability to import PSDs into XD projects. Right now we have to Open the PSD, then copy the assets from that new project into the XD project we're working on. It would be a major improvement in workflow if we could simply use the Import feature which is currently limited to JPGs, PNGs, GIFs and SVGs.

    This would remove the 2 extra steps of 1) exporting the PSD into a PNG and 2) copying assets from opened PSD into current project.

  15. Have a Convert Point Tool (To Edit Your Paths)

    It would be very helpful to have a Convert Point Tool (I believe it's called) where you can edit all of your paths that you created with the actual Pen Tool itself. I know XD is supposed to be much more simple than Illustrator is, but there are some things that a person just needs to learn before he gets into a design and this is one of them. Honestly, the only reason I switched from Ai to Xd is that the overall work experience is a lot better but not having features like this one annoys me very much.

    You can already convert an anchor point on a path in XD, from straight to curved, or curved to straight. To do so while drawing a new path with the Pen tool, simply double-click on the last point you created. To convert a point on a path you’ve already created, double-click on the path you want to edit with the Select tool, then double-click on any point on the path to convert it.

    Mask with Shape already exists! You can access it using the context menu if you have two objects selected, or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+M.

  17. Disable navigation on footer

    Hi Guys,

    is it possible to deactivate/disable the page-navigation on the Footer from prototype? Clients use this usually as Slide and don't understand the main fonction of XD

  18. Increase the hit area in the asset panel when in list view

    The hit area of an asset is limited to the icon in list view. which is very counter-intuitive please increase the hit area. and I don't think there will be any harm in doing so.

  19. Create mask from default container

    I think it would be a great improvement if the current 'mask with shape' feature also worked by using the default container of an image:


    1. Select image

    2. Shift + CMD + M

    3. Image is now masked within it's default container that you can edit

    Thanks!

    Note from Randy:

    Starting with XD 9, images are already masked with a shape! No need to execute any command.

    The shape is a Rectangle with same width and height as image. Double-click in the middle to edit size and position of image fill.

    Double-click on border to convert rectangle to a path.

  20. Design Standards for each file

    With a consistent design system, I have mapped all the standards we need to use on each project. With that, on XD I'm not able to set those as standards on a file so for an example, each different text element created need to be changed from the standard XD font to the one in my design system.

    With that, we would be able not only to document the general standards for the dev team but also would allow us to keep the standards tightly without the chance of forgetting to change something That could work for:


    • Standard font (family,…

    We’ve introduced linked assets, which will enable you to link your entire assets panel from another document. You should be able to define things in one location and reuse them.

    If you’re looking for something different, please feel free to file a new ticket!
