  1. 7-Day Trial not long enough for purchase decision

    Update to XD CC version today.

    I've been using XD for a while now and have been a big fan ...up until today.

    Like many others, I've invested a lot of time testing out this product. Also like others, I've done this on real projects in order to put XD to the test; see if it works for my workflow and so on. It was a risk I knowingly took.

    However, with such a short trial window for the official release, I feel like Adobe now has me over a barrel. There have been a few critical features missing which…

    • Find Missing Font

      When you open a document and it says a font is missing, but tracking down that missing font can be a nightmare.

      Often this can occur when moving from one system to another (home to work for example), so doing a find and replace would be very helpful, but just finding the "issue" would be invaluable, because sometimes a type box may not be readily visible to even find it to correct.

      • Pages

        One of the main reasons I am still on fw is the pages panel. Working with 50-100+ pg flows with artboards is not fun. It would be very helpful to have a pages panel option as well as the artboards. Would make for faster ongoing edits.

        • Speed to market

          Speed to market:
          Please accelerate the development of this product.
          Drip feeding product features is leaving you well behind the market.

          • Buy Subform and roll it into XD

            Just what the title says. Buy out Subform (https://subformapp.com/) from its owners/developers (they're self-funded so they might welcome the offer) and roll it into Adobe XD. There are some amazing layout features, object states, and all around good ideas about product design built into this little app.

            • Save Notifications

              Please integrate some kind of visible save notification. The beta version took several seconds to save my 50MB file, but the latest release appears to do this instantly, but I don't really think that the process has sped up that much. I find myself clicking several times on the save button just to be save that my work was actually saved.

                Hi,

                We worked a lot to improve the saving process. Depending on the Beta version you had installed on your machine, the speed difference between 1.0 and Beta can be significant.

                When the file was saved, the file name displayed in the title bar loses the “Edited” suffix. Is that helpful for you?
                Did you experience any save glitches or information loss with the new faster save process?

                Cheers,
                M.

              • Adobe XD CC Standalone Installer For Educational Lab Mac Deployment

                This is a duplicate request, but I was advised to make the request again in a chat with one of your Support representatives.

                Now that XD has achieved a full release as part of Creative Cloud 2018, could we finally have a standalone MacOS installer package, (or the ability to create on using Creative Cloud Packager), so that we can automate distribution of the application in the same way that we can with all other CC suite applications?

                Thanks Very much

                Alex Drinkwater

                • Lock CC Libaries Window

                  CC Library window currently open in its own window and just appears over the top of XD it would be great if we could lock it into XD like you can on InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop etc...

                  Currently very annoying when you go off XD and then go back on again to find your CC window has 'vanished' because it's in its own window...

                  • Add support for the Microsoft Surface Dial in Adobe XD

                    As I am incorporating Adobe XD more and more in my prototyping workflow, I find that switching from artboard to artboard and zooming out for a bird's eye view and then zooming in on a another artboard are primary actions within the app.

                    Also, since as PS-like scrubby zoom and flick panning are not implemented at this time, I find this whole process to be not quite optimized.

                    Since the introduction of Microsoft's Surface Dial device, it seems support has been added for it in Illustrator (https://helpx.adobe.com/si/illustrator/using/microsoft-dial.html) and given Ai's similar use of artboard and vector based approach,…

                    • Package files

                      It would be great if you can gather the files you’ve used, including fonts and linked graphics, for easy handoff. When you package a file, you create a folder that contains the xd document, any necessary fonts, linked graphics, and a package report.
                      Like we have in Illustrator or InDesign.

                      • Open multiple projects

                        I can't believe you remove opening multiple project. It was fine when it's beta. Now I have to close recent project to view or copy something from another project!!

                        • Shortcut from Desktop Preview Back to Art-board

                          Problem:

                          When I'm in desktop preview clicking through my work, I see something I need to change. I close the desktop preview and scan through my many art-boards to find the one that needs the change. Its time consuming.

                          Possible Solutions:

                          - “go to art board" button will close window and go to art-board.
                          - ⌘⌥ W = close window and go to art-board.

                          A previous request to solve this was to "Display artboard name in Preview". I don't like that. As Im clicking through my work I'm looking for things out of place and the way I can often…

                          • Rethink pricing

                            This pricing options look disproportionately to me... Adobe XD is on the same level as Photoshop and Lightroom combined? Nevertheless I will buy Adobe XD, because I startet a lot of projects with the beta and don't want them to be not finished...
                            Maybe there is a way to get any discount when using Photoshop and XD togehter? Would be nice...

                              • Save Artboard as Separate Document

                                When working on websites we often have breakout's with a ton of iterations for single pages/tools in pages.

                                Currently I just put all the iterations in the same XD file, but the file is now huge and takes several minutes to open.

                                It would be extremely useful to take the an artboard and make a whole new document from the selected artboard. There doesn't need to be any linking between artboards, simply taking that single artboard and creating a new document with the same color palette and objects.

                                A workaround is copying all the artboard contents and pasting into a…

                                • Indicate when the project is being saved visually

                                  Sometime the autosave doesn't work so I started always saving, but then I don't know if I actually saved the project so I have to check if the Save in the File menu is deactivated, it would be nice to have a bar in the bottom that shows a message or a progressing bar to know that your project is being saved.

                                    When the file is not saved, in the title bar you see something like FileName – edited. When the save operation is performed, either because you his Ctrl+S or the autosave, the edited label should not appear in the title bar.
                                    Is this good enough/working for you?

                                    Cheers,
                                    M.

                                    It would be nice if Adobe supports XAML standardization, and made XAML its code behind Adobe XD, including integration options with Xamarin.Form.

                                    • Feature Request Priority level

                                      Within requests, it would be awesome if you could let us assign a priority to our requests as well.

                                      Up voting works to a degree, however, it isnt as insightful to a true priority...

                                      (this priority is very low-low, btw)

                                      • Too much mouse use

                                        You should consider ways of minimizing the use of the mouse.
                                        I work with InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop all day long, I´ve never had problems with either hand or shoulder before starting to use Adobe XD.

                                        Manually resizing artboards is a pain. Fit to selection would help.

                                        Zooming is a pain. Smart zoom would help. (Zoom where the mouse pointer is, or where selection is.) I constantly have to reposition.

                                        Finding a page is a pain. Jump to page, search page og something like that would help.

                                        Selecting all on artboard can only be done by manual selection. Select all…

                                        • How To: for new features

                                          This suggestion actually is for you guys on this Feature Request Board.

                                          You guys have been so hard at work enabling features and when I search for them I see the bright green text saying the feature has been published. And Elaine does a great job of telling when the feature is available.

                                          The issue is that I don't quite know how to use the new feature or see it's effects. Is there a way to see a quick animated screen grab of the feature so i know how to use the feature you guys have now implemented?

                                            We currently highlight all of our new features on each release’s blog post, which often have animated GIFs as a part of the post: https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/august-update-of-adobe-xd/ We post these at the same time as our launch, so you can generally read all about it (and get info about it) every month. You can get notifications of these by following @adobexd or catching us on our Facebook page.

                                            One other thing I do is to post a daily protip, which walks through all of the new features immediately after they release. You can search on Twitter: @elainecchao #adobexd #protip

                                            I can also start adding in a link to the blog post for major features in the status update Email.

                                            If you think this will work for the future, please let me know, and I can go ahead and close this story!

                                            Thanks,

                                            -Elaine
