  1. Run path operations on shapes grouped to bounding boxes.

    Masked paths/shapes are revealed in js react. It would be nice to not have to do this manually.

  2. Batch export assets for selected artboard

    It would be nice to be able to select an artboard and batch export all assets on that artboard only.

    I work on several pages that are updated weekly and so I have one XD file for the entire week. Each page is it's own project and the assets need to be uploaded to dev in separate locations so being able to select one artboard and only export assets on that artboard would be super helpful!

  3. Dynamic linking between XD and After Effects

    Would be nice if assets wich exported to AE would be dynamically linked to the design in XD. So every update in XD updates the Assets in AE, just like AI->AE or dynamic link between AE and PR.

    Everytime I update a design and send it to AE, a while new composition is created wich makes working with updated files almost impossible.

  4. Different name for component states when exporting assets for dev handoff

    If I have a component "checkbox", and a state of that component named "checkbox_active", when exporting the asset, both will be named checkbox.svg, then I have to rename it manually.

    My idea is to name the svg accordingly with the state name or putting an underscore between names.

    Ex: component-name_state-name

  5. Make Component Master exportable to make all instances exportable

    It will be great if I can mark Component Master as exportable to export all Component Instances. If I have a button which I used many times I'd like to make them all (and all new instances) exportable at once.

  6. Export at 4x

    I know it’s not the primary usage for XD, but I was designing a little poster for a client in A4 and they suddenly changed their mind and wanted A3. I always export higher resolution, not just in print (using web export, which gives both 1x and 2x). So, since I wanted to have A3@2x, I had to manually copy the content and scale it up to a bigger art board. Thankfully there weren’t many changes in the poster after this but it got me thinking - it’d be neat if I could just export 4x of what I had…

  7. Export SVG graphics for web

    Now code of exporting SVG files starts like this:
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg&quot; width="32." height="32" viewBox="0 0 32.000 32.000">...

    Please add line "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>" befor <svg xmlns=...>
    Because lack of this string made issue with embedding SVG in content

  8. Select whether to export Android assets into a drawable or mipmap directory

    I work with developers, and we found a little problem during the export of assets for android : The folder where are exported the assets are named "drawable-hdpi" … or now, I don't know exactly from when, the folder to make an app is called "mipmap-hdi" …

    It depends on actually of some projects (sometimes you can still use drawable and sometimes not), but it will be a good idea to add a function to choose the name of folders :)

    Can you fix it for another update? Thank you!

  9. Export hidden icons to developer prototype

    I have noticed that assets that I have selected to be uploaded to my developer prototype only seems to include assets that are visible on the art board. It would be good if the developers had access to all the assets I have selected for upload in the asset panel regardless to whether they are visible on the art board or not.

    I turn visibility off for some of my icons as they change in different states and it is easier to keep them layered but the ones I'm not currently using tuned off (flash on/off/auto for example)

    Thanks :)

  10. Ability to export entire screens at a custom size

    I would like the ability to export entire screens at a custom size for use in promotional designs and print settings. When choosing "export for design" it exports it at an unusable quality with no option to export at a higher resolution. When everything is being designed with vector elements it makes no sense that I can't export at a higher resolution. The only workaround I have found is to export for android and only take the highest resolution, but this is a hassle and still somewhat limiting.

  11. Recursive exporting of all assets inside groups

    Is it possible to export all the assets in the art board embedded inside groups recursively.
    Example:

    Group1
    - asset 1
    - Group 1.1

         -asset 1.1.1
    
    -asset 1.1.2
    ......

    Expectation after export:
    asset1, asset1.1.1, asset1.1.2 (seperate files)

    currently once way to do this is to ungroup and export it.

  12. Adjust error message when exporting to a file open in another app

    I needed to overwrite a file when exporting it. However, I spent approximately 20 minutes trying to figure out why I kept getting the error "There was a problem exporting your asset. We'd love to understand what went wrong so that we can fix this for you. Please tell us about the problem here."

    I finally realized that this was because I was overwriting an opened file (I was viewing it in Adobe reader). As a software engineer to a team of software engineers, I highly recommend making the errors much more specific to the issue.

    if File.isOpen()
    sendError("Please close…

  13. Add PDF margins on export

    I work for a large ad agency. Currently we design in InDesign and export a PDF with margins to route through the agency and to and from our large, lucrative client. The margins are essential because we annotate the files. The PDF goes from department to department where stakeholders comment. The PDF is created by the art dept and lands back there and comments are addressed after it makes it's rounds.

    We would need to be able to create margins on our PDF exports to hold the anotations in order to even consider using XD. I think that one tweak…

  14. Export assets to an "asset" directory in the same location as the *.xd file

    the title says it all
    During export i don't want to be clicking and looking for the location of the export every single time.

    Please make a button that resets the export location to the location of *.xd file.

  16. Give a specific error when writing to a PDF that is already open

    Currently when you export a PDF with the same name as an already opened previous version, it wont say what is wrong. Would be nice if they fix this!

  17. Better export options for graphics with effects

    If I, say, create a round icon at 150px without any detail such as a drop shadow or glow, it will happily export at 150px.

    However, this size is increased on export with the addition of a drop shadow or glow detail etc. For example, to 168px. (The same principle would effect a shape or text element.) Currently, using the same 150px icon with drop shadow example, the asset size on the artboard does not take this into account, but still shows as overall size as 150px, even though exporting increases this.

    It would be useful to have an option…

  18. Preserve element name as ID name on SVG export

    We use the SVG output of AdobeXD to build our websites faster. But the only problem is the lack of meaningful names of the SVG elements in the exported file. It should be very helpful to name any element or group inside AdobeXD and preserve that name as svg id when exporting to svg. Including color and gradient names, repeaters names and interactive click spots.

  19. Add LDPI and TVDPI to asset export tool

    Although you cover the most common Android densities, sometimes you need to cover these resolutions for certain devices, for compatibility and testing purposes. It would be great if you would add a 0,75x (LDPI) and 1,33x (TVDPI) to your android asset export options.

    Photoshop and Sketch have a similar tool in which it lets you manually set your export sizes.

  20. Export artboard (as PDF) with 'extra space' added to the artboard edge

    When exporting an Artboard (as PDF) I would like an option for the artboard to be exported with extra space added to the edges, such as 400 pixels or "Export to an A4 size page set up".

    Also, add Header (Name of Artboard) and Footer details (Designer name and date, etc).
