  1. Zoom in the Preview Window

    The Preview window is a great way of navigating through a design/flow, especially since the window is minimal and works great with my iOS mirroring software (xScope from Panic).

    However, there's no way to affect the level of zoom in the preview window. Preferably, I'd like to set the zoom to 200%, 300%,or 50% (or reset it to 100%). This would make the mirror on my iOS device pixel perfect at 200% (Retina).

  2. Reorder layers in Mask via Layers panel

    At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

  3. Dotted underlined text style

    That feature would be the killer-feature! Trust me — it will economy dozens hours of life when designers need to show links with dotted underline (which is often usable thing to hide some tips or to show user that it is clickable, but not redirecting to other url)

  4. Reset different aspects of a component

    Currently "Reset to master component" resets all aspects of a component including text overwrites and color overwrites.

    I'd like to have the option to keep specific overrides of a component on reset. e.g.:
    - Keep text overwrites
    - Keep color overwrites
    - Keep image overwrite

    This would help to keep content and design separated and be very helpful. Especially If local adjustments where made and master was changed afterwards

    Currently "Reset to master component" is the same as "Delete component" + "Paste master in original position". As a result I need to re-enter everything again.

  5. Drag select multiple items

    It's hard to describe but the thing is: In Adobe XD it's not possible to to what's shown in the attachment (it's Affinity Designer). I hope you get what I mean. It's about the fact that I cant select multiple layers without also selecting the underlying layer.

  6. Use same shortcuts as Adobe Illustrator (or Photoshop?)

    Just in an effort of compatibility it would be nice to have the same default shortcuts (for those used to it) or being able to customize the shortcuts. Thank you !

  7. View CSS directly within XD

    You shouldn't have to share to a link in order to see your CSS Specs... would be nice to be able to see and copy them from within XD

  8. Gradient angle control (instead of dragging endpoints on canvas)

    I often use the angle values to rotate my gradients—most often from 0 to 90 (to switch between vertical gradients to horizontal ones). I know this can be accomplished by dragging the on-canvas gradient editor segment, but it slows down my workflow trying to get the end points to align on the x or y axis perfectly. Even if you could hold shift while moving the end points so it snaps to the 45, 90, etc. angles, that would be a huge help.

  9. Stacks should be able to grow up and to the left

    The new stacking function is very good and complements the padding function.

    However, on some occasions the direction of the stacks is not necessarily (from top to bottom) or (from left to right).

    I believe that adding two more stack options: (from bottom to top) and (from right to left) can improve the creation of interfaces more easily.

  10. Support small capitals

    All major OS typefaces (San Francisco, Roboto, Segoe UI) have small caps but they cannot be accessed in XD right now.

    Small caps come in handy when designing user interfaces and should be accessible from within XD imo.

    This is a subtask of OpenType: https://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/features_pt.htm#smcp

  11. Edit Original in Photoshop / Illustrator

    There should be an option for 'Edit Original' in a right-click menu.

    For example, an image in the document should be able to launch Photoshop by clicking 'Edit Original'.

  12. Paste above selected layer (another artboard)

    If I copy a specific layer to another artboard, it should be placed above the chosen layer of the artboard, not on the top off all layers.

  13. Change the bounding box on text objects to reflect line height

    It could be nice if the boundingbox that sorrounds the font on hover, expands in size when increasing the lineheight. With that we could set the lineheight as the developers use it in css.

    See example attached.

  17. Repeat grid boundaries should clip to element boundaries without clipping shadows

    I created a set of cards recently, with at least 50px shadow around them. When I wanted to create a repeat-grid out of it, it calculated the repeat-grid-items from where the shadow started and not the grid. This made it super difficult to work inside my grid. Please ignore the shadows as these are not part of the layout and the grid should be only for the elements and not the shadow.

  18. Dynamic margins between individual text boxes in Repeat Grid mode

    Text properties has been greatly improved with individual portion styling in May update, including colours in the fresh June update.

    However, the individual formatting doesn't conform to text files that are dragged into a text box in Repeat Grids mode (unless the number of characters in each word is matching exactly, see attachment ‘DragDropFormatting’).

    I would love to see a feature in the future that lets you set up spacing margins between text boxes that are meant for ‘drag and drop’ text files. This lets you use individual styling for each box and keep the spacing consistent. See attachment ‘TextBoxMarginsHorizontal’

  20. Alt + scroll mouse wheel zoom is opposite of PS/AI/etc...

    1. I noticed that alt + scroll mouse to zoom has an inverted behavior from the existing paradigms that the rest of the creative suite (like Photoshop and Illustrator) set. For example: scrolling up zooms in within XD while it zooms out within PS/AI. The request is to make XD's scroll consistent with the paradigms the rest of the creative suite has set with mouse scroll zoom.

    2. Inconsistent and unexpected feature behavior, especially when moving between PS/AI and XD.
