  1. Notes and colors on workspace for structure

    Working with a team on a project requires me to pass on my Xd files to others sometimes. Maybe it is me being messy, but being able to drop shapes and text on the workspace would mean a lot more structure to me.

    For example: if I could drop things on the workspace, i'd be able to create notes, drop grouped artboards on a colored background etc. In that way it would be easier for me to pass on my files without leaving the next person puzzled. And as I am working on a rather big project, it would even…

  2. Built-in file browser panel

    Dropping images from Finder is cool, but it might not be tricky (especially if you've got single screen) to have Finder window and some element you want to have image applied visible at once.

    Would be cool to have some kind of files browser inside XD

  3. need a way to know if a font is not supported in XD mobile

    when I'm working in XD and I'm selecting fonts, I need a way to tell if that font is NOT supported on XD Mobile.

  4. Improve the "HEY! you need to save your work" UI

    A big contributor to the issue of people losing their work (re: Auto Save (in case of system crash)) is that the UI does little to remind users to save their work.

    Yes, the page title says "<<your project name>> - edited", but the hundreds of people reporting this issue make it obvious that people don't notice this.

    It sounds like auto-save is in progress, but that it will take some time. In the meantime, how about implementing some much better "HEY! You need to save your work!!!" signifiers?

    thanks!

  5. Use dash instead of a long dash for artboard name when pasting

    Use dash instead of a long dash for artboard name when pasting. Cannot compress (zip) exported files when there is a long dash in the filename on a windows machine. There may be other issues that arise when there is a long dash?

    It'd be great to have a shortcut built in for the Apple UI kit! Food for thought!

  9. Include fold line (scroll viewport boundary) in exported images

    Nice to see where your screen ends in the exported images as well as just within the application? This may work especially well in mobile/responsive designs.

  11. Bring the Clear Recents menu item back

    Thought that the ability to clear the recent list used to be available but not seeing it anymore in the File > Open Recent menu. If it's gone—please bring it back.

  12. Show XD thumbnails in Windows 10

    It is so hard to navigate your design files when you can't see anything but just the name and app icon.

    Both Adobe and Microsoft are not only mature companies but one could say - the seniors of the market. So why is it still such a big problem? Why in 2018 for most Adobe apps we can only see icons, not proper thumbnails? Patents? Money? Lack of good will?

    Yes, there are 3rd party apps like mystic thumbs that would allow you to generate those thumbnails but it should be native already. So Adobe please, take some actions and…

  13. Use current file location as Save as default path

    When I select "Save As" it would make a lot of sense to use the file's current location as the default path. Currently XD seems to use the path that was used last time when using XD, regardless of the file.

    I use file number versioning alot, and I have "lost" my files multiple times just to find out them being accidentally saved into the folder of another project.

  15. Show artboard interactions in design mode

    In prototype mode, you can SEE where the pages connect, but when you switch back to design mode those visualizations are hidden. I would like to be able to visualize the paths in both views, all the time.

  16. Enlarge tiny interface type

    Hey Folks

    Some of the larger interface type is fine, but the smaller interface type is almost unreadable.

    I have 20/20 vision with pretty good accommodation and I can tell you that, by the end of the day, that small type is going to be a huge strain to read.

    Given this is a UX app, would be great to set a good usability example for other app designers. ; )

  17. Change default save location to local file system

    XD insists on saving my documents to Cloud Documents by default all the time. I haven't made such a decision and there's' no way of changing the default. I wanna save to "Your Computer" all the time. I really miss a "Remember this choice" option. Please stop making decisions on my behalf Adobe.

  19. Panning around screen on XD

    I'm physically disabled and cannot use my arms/hands. Is there a way to make it so it's possible to move around the screen when zoomed in please? I note it says to hold down the spacebar.... but, if you can't hold down the spacebar there's no scrollbars or onscreen way to do it? Add Adobe's hand tool maybe

  20. Add screenshots of plugins

    I wish there was a preview or screenshots of the plugins. Most of the plugins without a screenshot won't help me download it.
