  1. 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!

  2. Color asset highlighting

    When object with applied asset color or font style is selected, highlight those assets in the left bar so I know which one is applied.

  4. Paste above currentyl selected layer instead on top most position

    Currently pasting something is always placed on the top most position, that should be changed. Instead pasted elements should always be positioned above the currently selected layer.

    Thansk in advance.

  5. Edit Symbols

    I'd love the ability to edit an existing symbol and have it populate to all instances (ie. Navigations, Headers, Footers, etc.)

    This would make editing content and global changes SO much easier.

  6. Paste Appearance command

    Paste Appearance command should also work on folders. Lets say I have some multilayered flat logo 'A' in 'Folder A' and I want to past the attributes on all layers inside. It will be great. Currently I have to select all layers seperately.

  7. Copy one element and paste it in multiple views

    I'd like to be able to copy one element (i.e: a top navigation bar) to multiple views by copying the element, selecting all relevant views, and pressing cmd + V.

  8. Sync colors in assets to fill/border swatches

    I am able to add colors to my assets panel, but when I click on those colors it changes the color of the fill without an option to change the stroke. It would be awesome if these could sync to the fill/border color palette. It's annoying when the color is in your assets but not in your swatch and you have to fill a shape just to copy the hex code to change the color of the stroke. See video.

    You can already do this! By default, you click on the assets panel to apply it quickly to the fill. However, if you want to apply the color to your border, you can right click the swatch in the assets panel and select “Apply to Border.” Hope that helps!

  9. 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>

  11. 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.

  12. 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).

  13. Add a button to the first run start experience to open existing files

    The start experience on first run does not have a button that allows us to open existing XD files. Every other Adobe product allows this.

  15. Add context menu for copying and pasting when editing text

    When I try to copy a section of text within a text box, if I right click on the selection there are no options but if I use the keyboard shortcut cmd + c it will copy it to the clipboard for me to paste on to another art board.

    Is this by design or is it a bug? If it is by design can right click options on selected text be added please?

  17. OPT + DRAG to duplicate artboards

    Allow OPT + DRAG to duplicate artboards

    This would allow much faster iteration of page ideas. Duplicating from the layers palette is cumbersome and less intuitive because it forces way too much pointing and clicking.

    You can already option-drag to duplicate artboards. However, you’ll need to make sure that you have the artboard itself selected before you option-drag. To select the artboard, you can either click the artboard’s title or double click on the background. Once the artboard is selected, you can Option-Drag and have the entire artboard duplicate. :)

  18. shift-and-drag objects 45 degrees

    I cannot seem to shift-and-drag objects 45 degrees and that seems like a fairly normal adobe feature.

  19. Customize rectangle corners separately

    You can currently round corners of squares by clicking and dragging to your desired radius. I wish I could:
    1. only round certain corners (ie, only 2 not all 4)
    2. enter the exact radius I want (used to be able to do that easily in the right panel, but that option has disappeared)- would be beneficial for handing off files to developers

  20. copy & paste

    Copy & paste the same artboard style (with exactly the same items on it) to another artboard. Also copy & paste the same item with the same position to another artboard (cmd + alt + shift + v) as in InDesign.

    If you select an artboard, copy and paste it, another artboard will be created with all the same contents.

    If you copy an item from one artboard and copy it to another, the location of the item should match where it was copied from.

    This is in our current update of XD as of this writing.
