  1. Generate specs / measurements / style guide for developers

    What definitely needed in the Design community is to ease the design-development delivery-review phase. To unload both of the sides.

    A lot of different platforms, tools, plugins were meant to do that and none of them is fully unloading and simplifying that process.

    PNG Express, Specking, Avocode, Markly, Zeplin, Craft, Marketch etc...

    I believe there is a need in having some specifications delivery service, styleguide generating service.

    Specs:
    + Measuring distance from text line height (because that's how developers do), not font size.
    + Ability to adjust the UI on the go with automatic sepcs changing
    + Ability to select…

    • Auto Save (in case of system crash)

      Auto save take away the worry of saving and losing data.

        We’re actively working on an auto save feature for XD, but it’s a hugely complicated feature that will take some time to deliver. Please do save often in the interim!

      • Dark Interface (overall UI including side panels)

        The option for a darker interface like Photoshop and Illustrator would be great, especially when working at night.

          • Customer Journey map

            Since it's an UX design app, why not add a customer journey map tab? UX designers could start from it, designing the user experience, defining channels, touchpoints, personas, actions and feelings... and then going deeper into visual designs and prorotypes.

            • Please make an iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support

              I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.

              A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

              • New mode: IA Flow

                Simple view to map out the IA (Information architecture), decided feature requests, page relationships, etc. before designing.

                This would keep all design blueprints in one system instead of heading out to ___(Mind map or flowchart app of choice)__ to stay on track. Especially when working on small teams.

                May reflect a similar (though severely simplified) view of Prototype mode.

                • Import/Open Sketch files

                  I would like to transition from Sketch to XD, but with so many clients files created in Sketch, I would need an easy way to open the Sketch files in XD and save them as native XD files.

                  • Pen and touch support in windows 10

                    Currently it's not possible at all to work with Experience Design using touch or pen input on Windows 10. Please improve that.

                      From our release blog post

                      > We have ambitious plans to offer full support for touch devices and pen input in XD. While we have made progress in this area, we are not ready yet to make those capabilities available in our public beta releases. Once we’ve delivered the core XD feature set for designing, prototyping and sharing user experiences, then we’ll enable touch and pen features for the Microsoft Surface family of products and other touch-enabled devices.

                    • Standalone installer

                      I'm a teacher at university who have a sort of CC team model installed on their computers. I wanted my students starts learning from beginning XD but unfortunately you can install it just via the CC app and there is no stand alone installer on line.

                      I know its not a feature request and its very specific request :)

                        • Display online comments in desktop application

                          It's great to have add and see comments in the online prototype. But even better (for the designer) would be to see those comments *in the design file.*

                          I envision a third tab next to Design and Prototype: Comments (or Feedback). When you go to that tab, you see all your artboards, but you also see any comments that have been made on the online prototype. Pin or bubble icons (or whatever) appear next to artboards with comments, which you can click to pull up the comments in a comments panel (similar to the layers and symbols panels, but perhaps…

                            • MS Windows Priority!

                              Us windows (10) user are really badly stuck for a good prototyping tool. It is awful to see, once again, that windows users of XD are trailing Mac users in terms of functionality!

                              Sketchapp have ignored Windows users, which IMHO is going to be the eventual cause of their demise as most design/dev teams use a mix of OSs in house.

                              I looked at Adobe XD last year and again over the past day. Windows users are still being treated as second class users to Mac users.

                              Please speed up or Windows development! Features of both OSs should be released…

                                There should be a night mode, instead of it being white, night mode would help us programmers.

                                  • Make Adobe Xd actually about 'Experience' Design & not just 'Interface' Design

                                    UX means more then UI—we already have a lot of useful tools when it comes to interface design, what we are missing is a UX focused tool that brings together more of the subtle aspects of experience design.

                                    From some basic research I undertook with other UX professionals, some of the common features they would like to see/require in an 'Experience' design tools would include (but not be limited to :) );

                                    - The ability to start with Feature list and grow this into a UI
                                    - The ability to recognise common features on views and add in automatically
                                    -…

                                          I would like to import HTML or SWF files as content in XD.

                                            Kenneth, would you mind breaking out SWF import as a separate feature request? That way people can gauge whether people want both or which one is higher priority. I’ll remove SWF from the title here so it’s focused specifically on HTML import.
