Would be nice if objects could be temporarily hidden.
Similar to illustrator.
cmd+3 hides an object
cmd+alt+3 unhides an object.
That would make selecting other surrounding objects an easy task.
It also works nicely if the user wants to focus on a specific area without being distracted by other elements33 votes
We’ve introduced the ability to hide objects with the Layers panel in our November release. However, we understand that some of you want more advanced control for hiding and showing objects. Given that there are a number of different potential directions we could take this, we’d love to hear your thoughts in new ideas in UserVoice. I’m closing this idea as completed for now.
<Note: original suggestion has been edited to add links to separate breakout suggestions, to keep the list fine-grained>
Add fill support for :
- Pattern : Pictures (browser or download from link), ... --> see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15672075-pattern-fill
- Linear gradient --> DONE!
- Radial gradient --> see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15671976-radial-gradients
- Angular gradient --> https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15902767-angular-gradient
- Noise fill --> see https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15672078-noise-fill33 votes
We have just shipped Linear gradients.
I’ve broken down this feature request into separate pieces:
- Noise fill: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/15672075-pattern-fill
- Radial Gradient fill https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/15671976-radial-gradients
- Pattern Fill
Feel free to vote on the features above.
When handing off designs to developers it would be great to allow them to view the XD file for font size etc. without actually paying or having an app installed.32 votes
We do have design specs now, which developers can use to view colors, character styles, and measurements without having to pay for a license.
Option to fill entire imported asset with color on single click selection. Currently double clicking allows parts to be filled, but for a complex icon with multiple parts one has to select and color them individually. See attached example.
Example. When one has imported a series of icons from Illustrator, selecting the the icon should present a color fill option to fill that entire icon with color.32 votes
It feels weird not having those shortcuts31 votes
We have just shipped this feature with the July update of Adobe XD

Entering #000 should automatically convert it to #000000.30 votes
This will be available in our next update, in August.
We’ve added three kinds of shorthand:
- One digit “c” → #cccccc
- Two digits “80” → #808080
- Three digits “8f0” → #88ff00
I think this already existed in macOS version. The idea is you can style (color, fontsize, etc.) a certain word or character in a line for sentence (one text group). This is, for me, one of the most useful features in design.28 votes
Someone mentioned this in a comment, but yes, we did deliver this feature in our June release of XD! Check it out!
Would still like to be able to zoom into a targeted area with the magnifying glass as you can in the Mac version28 votes
Our zoom tool is now available in the March release of Adobe XD. To update, go to the Creative Cloud application, click on the gear, and select “Check for App Updates.”
Ability to click an object and the artboard (title or artboard border perhaps) so that a user can quickly align the object to the artboard itself. Most frequent use case is centering an object to the artboard.
Sometimes faster and easier to do this than having to move the object until smart guides assist the user in placing the object in the right spot on the artboard.
Now, you can select an element or a group, use the alignment tools via property inspector and the selected item will be aligned to the artboard (a single selection of one item or one group has to be made). Please let us know if it covers your needs described in this request. Thanks.
There needs to be a way to search within libraries.
I have a library that has 750+ icons in a library and no way to search for what I am looking for.25 votes
Starting with XD 19, you can now filter Libraries by type and search by name.
Is this what you were looking for?
Everyone uses icons. They're everywhere so you spend a lot of time using them during design. Usually you need some external project opened with those icons and copy-paste them etc.
Would be good to have some kind of built-in way to use imported icons (or any asset actually)25 votes
As of know you can copy and paste items from Illustrator and from browsers. You can also import SVG from Sketch and from Finder. Could you change the title for this item to Font Icon support? If that is the case. Thanks.
we need to start designing for the new iphone24 votes
We’re pleased to announce that the iPhone X artboard is now available in the November release of Adobe XD. If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of the application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you’re looking for improvements on this feature, please do file a new request!
Facebook did it. Why can't Adobe?23 votes
We’ve included links to the iOS UI Kit (which we Emailed out a couple of weeks ago) in the August release of XD!
Show all & zoom to selected object is a pretty powerful way to navigate among your artboards. Also very useful when trying to work on the details of a particular selected object.23 votes
You can now zoom to selected object. Check out the September release of Adobe XD.

I would really love in XD to have an option to import artboards from Illustrator. Working in UX with teams who create mockups in Illustrator, it would be a nice option to see a workflow where I can import my artboards so I can then prototype within XD.
Currently, I copy and paste in from Illustrator, which works, but it doesn't retain data sometimes such as drop shadows, which is an issue for some within the team.22 votes
In the most recent update (Oct 15, 2018), you can now open your Illustrator files in Adobe XD, while retaining artboards, layers, and editability.
The ability to turn artboard-based grids on and off using a checkbox in the artboard's property inspector.22 votes
You can down download the January release to play with Snap-to Grids on the artboard. Download it now to check it out!

(NOTE: You can rotate symbols currently by entering a rotation value in the Properties panel. This request is for dragging on canvas to rotate, like you can with other objets that have resize handles).
Can you, please, add handles to be able to rotate symbol with mouse cursor. Like it is now done for all the other elements in XD.
Because for me it is faster to duplicate symbol and rotate two of them and then to remove the duplicate, rather than use special input field on the properties panel.21 votes
You can now rotate components (formerly symbols)! Check out the latest version of XD to get this capability.
Seems like we're missing CC Library support for Illustrator assets. I'm sure you're on it but didn't find another comment on it. I can imagine you were under the gun to show off more library integration for MAX but vector symbols are really where it's going to be at for our team's needs. (That and JPG exporting, but that's been covered).19 votes
Apologies for the late announcement on this one, but we now have vector support in XD for CC Libraries. https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/cc-libraries-xd.html
since there is no layers tab, it is crucial to have a feature that allows the user to arrange objects to:
- bring to front
- bring forward
- send backward
- send to back
I'm aware that these are in the menu under Object, but please make them more accessible in the UI, if I have to go into the menu every time to arrange objects it will slow down the user's work flow!19 votes
In our June 2016 release, you will be able to use the context menu (right click) to arrange your item. For now, you can use the menu under Object as mentioned, or shortcuts (CMD + ] to Bring Forward, or CMD + [ to send Backward).
When creating colors in the Asset panel, it would be nice to use the color picker tool and not have to have the Hex value handy. Not all mock-ups are color sensitive so this would make a nice quality of life addition.18 votes
We’re pleased to announce that the assets panel eyedropper is now available in the November release of Adobe XD. If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of the application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you’re looking for improvements on this feature, please do file a new request!
