  1. Use Mobile Device to Show Palettes

    Is there a way you could create the ability to use a mobile device to display actionable palettes?

    I use a two display setup on my desktop. When I travel I have to use my laptop which means I can't have very many palettes available without using up my project workspace on screen.

    What if I could connect my mobile device via usb or bluetooth and have actionable palettes displayed there. I could have several palettes onscreen on a tablet, or on a phone, then I could just swipe left or right to the palette I wanted. I could then…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Export to InVision with assets to support "Motion" and prototyping (like Craft)

    I would like Adobe XD to be able to export/sync to InVision to support "Motion".

    "Motion" is a closed beta at Invision that supports micro animations/interactions – similar functionality to what thirdparty apps/services like Atomic, Marvel and Flinto has to offer.

    By enabling Adobe XD to export its assets to Invision in such a way that "Motion" inside InVision can be applied to the XD wireframes/prototypes/designs inside InVision.

    Preferably XD export to InVision should support sync, perhaps via Dropbox.

    PS. For the long run XD could add "Motion" functionality inside XD and thus reverse sync the motions from Invision "Motion"…

  5. 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…

  6. Export files to flinto and Principle

    What I love from XD is the ability to design and prototype in the same tool without having to install hundreds of plugins and the lightweight that it is. Sometimes have to animate things faster with custom animations and I use these tools (Principle and Flinto) to create them. I've been obligated to recreate my designs into this tools then animate. It should be nice to have a export tool to this tools or others.

  9. 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)

  12. slack integration

    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.

  14. Integration or Export the UI to JS React Native file

    Hi there! I'm excited with this tool from you.
    I came here to suggest few things base in actual ideas going on.

    I'm a React Native user. I'm pretty excited with RN too. And I would be glad to merge RN with Xd.

    For RN we have few tools (IDE) like Deco IDE (just MAC...) and exponent. Deco is very interesting and Xd could overcome it.

    I think create UI inside Xd and transform the it's layers into React native tags would be the simplest way. Adobe XD would not be affected just creanting a kind of "react export". These…

  15. 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.

  16. Merge XD & Muse

    XD is great at prototyping UI/UX, but severely lacks at turning those designs into functional sites and applications.

    Muse does just that, but is not nearly as fun to design with.

    Essentially, I'd love to be able to view HTML/CSS properties in XD, but then that's eating into what Muse does. So I suggest merging the two.

  17. Copy text from objects as rich text to transfer to development tools

    When I create UI design on XD and write html on Dreamweaver or other text editors, I need to repeat the flow of steps so many times.
    the steps :
    1.double click text object for editing
    2.select all characters
    3. copy them
    4. go to text editor and paste.

    It is very simple steps but It is hard to repeat them.

    If I can get plain/rich texts on clipboard as soon as I select text objects and copy on XD, My workflow will be better, and UI designers who don't write html themselves handoff for developer easier.

  18. Wacom Tablet issues on Mac

    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,

    -Elaine

  19. Automatically insert stock images

    Option to get semi-random images in grids using adobe stock images. I would type some keywords like "nature" and "hiking" and it would automatically fill other grid elements with similar photos.

    Maybe it could be done for single images too like this:

    1. select shape
    2. click insert image (in appearance)
    3. choose source (adobe stock)
    4. type keywords
    5. select image

    and if it's grid it selects similar images.

    It could speed up design process when you need to quickly get dozen of related photos.

  20. 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.
