  1. 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.

    • 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…

      • Auto save is not appropriate solution for anything other than cloud back up. It is not a workflow enabler.

        This is a user expectation to not lose work and also not have temporary edits commited without saving them. And besides, it doesn't save everything anyway either! Citing Windows UWP patterns as the fault of the user is disrespectful to the trade of user experience design. If you had tested this with experienced designers you would have discovered this earlier, before you released it to the world and cost us all a bunch of time (and yes money) trying to recreate or uncreate temporary work that UWP may have decided to commit or not. The request is to give us…

        • Import Feature need to improve with some feature tab

          hello team,
          while importing assets it should not be directly load into art board . but instead first it load on assets kind of tab at top most bar of XD. when click on that it should toggle our imported assets and we drag them out whichever we want onto the artboard for project. not at once i mean.

          • Be more like Sketch

            Seriously,

            How hard is it to just pay for Sketch and try it out. Annotate all the features that are missing in XD and are in Sketch (that's gonna take a while) and then put some people on it and get those features in XD.

            You can call it stealing features but you either do that or you'll lose all your customers you decide. Like how hard is it to build a big enough team to get some Sketch features to XD. Imagine that Adobe, you have everything that Sketch has but then you start to add features it doesn't…

            • Support for case sensitive APFS/HFS

              Adobe XD cannot run on macs that for various reasons use a system volume with case sensitive AFPS/HFS. This is the also true for other software from Adobe, e.g. Photoshop. The difference between XD and Photoshop is that Photoshop _is_ available as a standalone download (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/creative-cloud-apps-download.html), and standalone download installers let the user select which volume to install the software on. Adobe XD is currently_not_ available as a standalone download and is thus not available on a computer with a system volume that has a case sensitive file system.

              A workaround would be to offer a standalone download…

                • Key Mapping

                  The ability to switch mappings for tools would make the transition from other software and continued use much easier. For example, changing select (V) to select (W).

                  • Remove auto save

                    Sometimes I open files just to copy assets to another file, and move things around. I don't undo that coz sometimes I move stuff without even being aware. But when I close XD it doesn't even ask if I want to save changes. It automatically saves changes I didn't intend to save. It's very frustrating. Please give option to disable automatic save. If it automatically saves a copy on crash it's understandable, but this saves the main file. All unintended changes get saved.

                                I noticed that there is only Russian Cyrillic supported, . Is there a way to add automated language recogniser in future updates? Or at least add options similar to the one in photoshop.
                                The upper is Russian the bottom one is Bulgarian Cyrillic.
                                Thank you.

                                    The Desktop preview needs a "simulator" where we can change the size/resolution that we want to test on.

                                    Example: I have a project designed for iPhone 6, with all art boards being for the iPhone 6, because that is what I'm testing on (my personal phone). I can plug my phone in and test the project on my phone. So, for iPhone 6, all is well. However, I am unable to test on any other devices because I do not own them, and do not want to redo all of my work, resizing them in a new file, for each…

                                    • The tool crashes when doing simple activities.

                                      The Adobe XD app crashes when doing simple activities. Like moving the window from one monitor to another. I'm not sure that the issue of having too many applications opened on my computer would be the issue since I have Photoshop opened and my project in there is much larger. Plus I am only starting a project in Adobe XD. I wonder if the latest update from the cloud has an issue.

                                      • More usable "print" oriented page/display settings

                                        My team and I have found we are working in XD not only to create screen based artwork but also more for print work. Laying out a booklet or concepting ideas works very well in XD. There is an ease to the program and experience that indesign and illustrator just don't embody.

                                        For this to be more "print" friendly which we know is not the intention with this program, we would love to see a pixel per inch option we can spec at the same time as the pixel dimension.

                                        Currently, we create canvases that are the (inches x 300ppi)…

                                        • 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.
