  1. Import Photoshop / PSD

    Import Photoshop file with options to select layers and/or artboards.

    This would increase ease of use and workflow, so a user is not always switching between apps. Import options for layers, artboards, or even layer comps, would also cut down a lot of rework.

      • Import all SVG exported from Illustrator, for compatibility

        In V1, it's clear that support for AI and PS files will be minimal. But please support SVG files. As of now, SVG files don't even appear and if they do, only parts of them are seen.

        With SVG support, I can export all my AI artwork to SVG and import that into XD without losing any styles. This will be a great temporary fix while you work on supporting AI files. Please make this happen for V1.

        • Dynamic link with other CC file formats - edit in Photoshop/Illustrator auto-updates in XD

          It would be great to simply import psd files into XD through either 'file // import PSD', or, in photoshop, 'file // export to XD', without having to rework the files.

          An example for this would be a user that is designing an app in photoshop and has around 15 artboards. It would be great if the user could simply import each artboard into XD to create a wireframe to show a client / colleague, whilst also continue to make amends to the artboards in photoshop.

          This could involve having some kind of Dynamic link between Photoshop and XD, so…

            • InDesign integration

              Would like XD to work with InDesign in much the same manner that AI and PSD files do. This might be more of a feature request for InDesign however I imagine they both play a role in working together.

              Ultimately, in order for a design to be implemented correctly, we need to provide a detailed UI specification for engineering. This specification is often worked on by interaction and visual designers which is part of what makes InDesign an ideal solution for us.

              The prototyping functionality is great for communicating how a design could work, but we still need an accompanying…

              • Integration with Adobe Animate CC

                If i create an artboard in photoshop, illustrator, etc i should be able to import those artboards into XD without having to access the original file to make edits such as text changes, images swaps, vector shape edits...

                also, i should be able to use animations from flash/after effects to bring in loading screens, sliders, reveals, popups, etc that work within XD (and iphone)

                • Integrate with Adobe Comp CC

                  Allow adobe comp app the capability to export to experience design. Also allow users to select a new project or add to an existing one. This would allow users to create on the go.

                      • Drag and Drop Artboards from PS/Sketch to Import into XD

                        It would be great if XD could have an Extension that works with Sketch and Photoshop to export Artboards to XD - like you would do with Zeplin or Proto.io

                        The ability to import the exported dartboards into XD with all the assets sliced, imported and placed in their original/correct position, all groups and layers are preserved just like they were in the original design app.

                        This would be a massive time saver and speed up our workflow hugely

                        • Copy vector art from Illustrator

                          I can't find this exact feature request so I thought I would request it here. Is it possible to build XD so that any Adobe Illustrator artwork can be pasted into it?

                          Photoshop has this ability so I'm continuing to use Photoshop for app design, however, Sketch has some nice features over Photoshop but it's inability to accept even the most simple compound shapes from Illustrator make it virtually unusable for serious design. If preventing users from switching permanently to Sketch is on Adobe's radar, I think y'all should get Illustrator objects compatibility going. It'll be the clincher to ensure…

                            Hi, all-

                            I’m trying to consolidate a number of the Illustrator issues into one list to work against, as the various requests seem to be all over the forum. I’ve started with James’ specific list below, and would like to hear back as to what other specific features are not importing correctly from Illustrator 2017.

                            • Pixel dimensions not aligning
                            • Support for dotted lines
                            • Support for rounded stroke
                            • Text is broken up into individual lines

                            Are there additional things you’ve hit that you’d like us to address?

                            -Elaine

                          • XD + Sympli

                            Bridge with sympli for improving the share with developers.
                            Sympli works in interaction with XCode and Android Studio, at moment is available only for Photoshop.

                            Enjoy: https://sympli.io/downloads/web

                                For my team, this would be much better than just a dedicated in-tool comment system for getting feedback as this would make my prototypes more accessible to the whole team and company without the need for me to specifically send the link to select individuals.

                                  It is very easy to navigate the Xd interface with a magic mouse or touch pad however when I am working with my Wacom (which is often) I loose some of the functionality such as zooming and being able to move around the interface with a 'hand' tool option 'H' like in Illustrator and Photoshop. If one of the artboard falls off the screen/interface, I am unable to simply drag the view to accomodate the artboard. If I am using the Wacom I have to go to the magnification setting in the upper left hand of the interface which is…

                                    Please note that the Wacom tablet on Windows only is considered a pen experience, which is not yet supported on the canvas. You should be able to select the tools along the side and interact with XD in the property inspector. We’re working on that particular experience.

                                    However, I’d like to keep this open to be able to talk about what specific issues Mac users are experiencing. Please do add these in the comments!

                                    Thanks,

                                  • Adobe Extract for Brackets to work with XD

                                    Brackets Code Editor has good integration with PSD Files, which allows it to grab layers, colors, font details and spacing info. More on that here (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/extract-for-brackets.html)
                                    I wonder whether you can work on features that allow Adobe Extract to grab data(images, font names, sizing info etc) from XD and transfer for Brackets, the same way it happens to PSD ?

                                    • Import layered Fireworks PNG's

                                      A lot of us have been using Fireworks for creating web/app layouts. If we could import those layered png's into XD it would really help to smooth the transition.

                                      • Import from Adobe Edge Animate (OAM) for animation design

                                        Support for .oam would mean that tricky interactive elements and animations could be built with other tools including InDesign, Edge Animate or Tumult's Hype.

                                        • Tight integration with Illustrator and Photoshop: create artwork in PS/AI, import into XD, add interaction in XD

                                          I think most of us in the industry already use AI and/or PS as our primary design tool. It would have been awesome if XD was a tool that focused on simply adding interactivity to artwork that was imported from AI or PS. AI and PS already have all the editing capabilities... why do you want to add them again in XD. It seems like the goal was to create an answer to Sketch, rather than enabling existing Adobe users to rapidly create interactive prototypes. Adobe's core strength is in AI and PS... and you could have hit it out…
