  1. iPad App

    It would be really great if we could get an Adobe XD app for the iPad. it is a perfect app for the iPad and would be very useful and convenient.

  2. Document 'Open' UI - Add search functionality

    I have a LOT of AdobeXD Cloud files, and I'm creating more every day. It's very difficult to find one specific file in my list of Cloud Documents - particularly if I'm trying to pull up something I worked on a few weeks/months ago.

    It would be nice if there were a search bar in the 'Open' screen (CTRL + O) that would allow me to quickly & dynamically search for a specific document by name.

  3. Panel to edit Adobe XD keyboard shortcuts

    Would be nice to have an option to edit the keyboard shortcuts of the application. I'm used to work with Inkscape and Illustrator and I have some keyboard shortcuts I use in both applications to work faster when creating layouts. If I could edit the shortcuts on XD to match my workstyle with other applications, would be easier to work and switch between them.

  4. backward compatibility

    I am facing a serious issue. I can't open xd file that is created with a newer version in an older version of xd. Here I update my xd app regularly to get new features but my colleague gets irritated to update it regularly. Can there be a feature to convert the same file into the older version when they try to open the file?

  5. Export into Device

    If a screen was designed at a specific resolution, it would be fantastic to be able to export a screen into a device mock-up.

    For example, I design screens to fit into a Galaxy S8+ device. My artboards are 1440x2960 (although any matching ratio should work as well), and then after exporting them into PNGs, I do a 2nd pass where I place those screens into device mock-ups for placing into Powerpoints, websites etc...

    It would be a fantastic tool if XD did that for me as an export option! The devices should be exportable with/without screen glint and with/without…

  6. Make XD installable by admin and usable for users

    Make XD installable by an Admin and usable by users without admin rights and store disabled.
    We are in a corporate environment, Users don't have access to the store and don't have admin rights. Right now XD install is user profile based, which does not work in our corporate environment.

  7. Require small size pdf

    When exporting the artboards as PDF, it gives a very huge file size i.e. around 65 MB or more (depending upon numbers of artboards). So that it is hard to attach to an email and share with clients.
    To make it small, I need to use Acrobat or export as jpg and then insert into other programs to create small size pdf. I have to do it manually and this takes time. If there will be additional features to get small size pdf, this will save a lot of efforts and time.

  8. Shortcuts don't work in other languages

    I'm using the English version of Adobe UX and a Farsi keyboard. But I can't use shortcuts when I'm using Farsi. I have to change the keyboard language in order to use shortcuts.

  9. Share for Review on XD mobile App (for non designer stakeholders)

    What would solve some review issues with mobile app designs; is to allow stakeholders to download the XD mobile app (not designers) and for them to be able to open the shared link https://xd.adobe.com/view/xxxxxx/ and then they can view the prototype on their device similar to how an app works (without having to create a CC account). It's way to large a document to share the whole file with a non-designer stakeholder.

    Xd Viewer app tried to solve this issue, but it is slow and glitchy. (please see what they tried to do)

    I find using the browser Safari or…

  10. Connecting with the Slack app: Adobe requests too much proprietary information

    Slack is what everyone uses in their company for communications. I cannot promote Adobe usage because Adobe as a company is asking for too much private information and is not giving us the option to minimize what we share. Therefore I have to back out of connecting Adobe XD and my wireframes in the Slack app. Please reconsider. People will increasing opt out if you don't give them to option to choose what information we need to protect at our company.

  11. Remove Scroll Bar

    Can we get rid of or have the option to disable the scroll bar on desktop preview for mobile app designs, it blocks some design and ruins the prototype experience.

  12. strobing background

    Every time I move my mouse across the screen or zoom, the background seems to strobe. I spend most of my day looking at XD, so this is really starting to mess with my head. Dear god, make it stop.

  13. Temporarily lock XD from edits

    Be nice if I leave my desk and just to be safe there should be a lock button on top right corner with the other tools that will not let anyone by accident click my mouse and move anything by accident be in positioning of art-board or assets.

  14. Sessions With Adobe XD Customers

    If Adobe could provide online sessions, or in their stores, with customers who use Adobe XD. To explain, many people aren't familiar with the tool and it takes a lot of practice. This occurs to me, and one of the big tech companies are already doing this, Apple. There is something called 'Today At Apple,' which includes loads of different sessions to help customers. (Link https://www.apple.com/today/) If Adobe XD could include this within the app on Mac or the phone app, it would be useful for it's customers.

  15. Template option

    Can you give "save as" the ability to save "as a template" so that you can't overwrite an existing document. Indesign has this, and is very useful for protecting original documents that must never be changed.
    ie. You open a template doc, and the only option you have when you save is "save as", therefore keeping the original intact.

  17. Database integration

    It would be useful to have a low-code solution to connect XD to a customizable relational database. To truly exploit all that is XD, I really need a database with group and user access, user specific data views for their accounts, and read/write ability based on status and privileges.

  19. Show document location on Ctrl+Click on macOS

    In native macOS apps, control+clicking on the title displays a menu showing where the file is located.

    XD does not seem to have any way to see where a file is located or reveal the Finder.

  20. File saving is screwy

    I nearly panicked tonight trying to find a file I knew I had saved after working on it all day. With XD on Win 10, the "save as" experience is no longer what 99.99% of all other programs do, and what Adobe has done for 2 decades plus.

    When you "save as" in the creative cloud, typically the program you're in just opens a file explorer to save the file in whatever folder you select. Instead, you've created some "Name your document" interface that is ambiguous in it's function. If I save to cloud documents, the interface goes away and…
