  1. Allow macro software to use XD

    Hi there,

    I generally like to have the Adobe softwares configured on gaming equipment such as mouse and keyboard with macro buttons. This really makes working on them faster.

    Adobe Xd, since it is attached to an inaccessible file in WindowsApp, doesn't have that. This would be great if you consider having the .exe file somewhere else (this is probably naive of me to think that).

    Anyhow, I like Xd so far but this puts me off since using macros is generally how I work best :/ (having most of what I need on my mouse for instance)

    All the…

  2. Adobe Bridge CC and XMP Metadata Integration

    It would be great to have the possibility of integrate Comet's design files into a Bridge-Based workflow.

    Support for XMP metadata, possibility to see/use the color swatches used into a document, quick thumbnails preview (Like ID files), keywording, etc...

    Unfortunately many apps made by adobe over the time use files that does not integrates into Bridge workflow, like Muse, Edge Reflow, Edge Animate, other...

  3. Rasterize Photoshop smart objects on import

    Our team is in the process of moving a significant portion of our website/web app design & production pipeline from Photoshop to XD.

    Currently, one of our biggest snags involves having to re-import Smart Objects because they lose their appearance in XD. When we have created several Smart Objects in Photoshop, all the effects within that Smart Object disappear when imported to XD:

    - Feathered vectors lose their feathered edges
    - Blending modes are ignored
    - Raster masks are ignored

    I understand that it might be a relatively long while before individual Smart Objects can update dynamically from the CC…

  4. After Effects Integration: Groups should be imported as compositions

    When exporting to After effects the xd pages are split into layers in After Effects but the grouping seems to be lossed. This has meant that it is difficult to find the correct layers and groups. It would be ideal if groups in XD were changed into compositions in after effects with the layers for each group held within.

  8. Adding ID to views and elements

    I'm doing an app and i'm getting a lot of views. It would be great if we could add an ID to views/elements and write somewhere (a console maybe ?) something like "for each view that contains this ID, add this button" or "change the background color".
    I think it would makes us gain a lot of time.
    It could be a feature for those who know how to code ? Or something simpler that everyone could use without coding.

    Thanks for reading !

  12. Zeplin: Just export selected artboards

    If I export to zeplin XD exports ALL artboards. But I just like to export few selected artboards (and not my alternative designs). Please implement an option to select: ALL | Just selected artboards to export to zeplin.

  13. Create JIRA issue from XD annotation

    We'd like the ability to create a JIRA issue directly from an annotation point in XD so that the prototype/design is linked to its implementation work in JIRA.

    My workaround right now is to call out the numeric annotations within the description of a specific JIRA issue but I think this could be improved by a link between the two.

  14. Adobe XD for Jira

    We are interested in using the Adobe XD for Jira add-in. However when installed it is present on every Jira project. Jira is widely used inside our company for many software development and reliability projects.

    We would like to use the add-in only on GUI development projects were we are also using Adobe XD, would it be possible for you to update the add-in to enable this?

  15. Jira integration is not sufficient

    Now I can only link a full prototype / design spec to a jira issue.
    Our workflow is to (deep)link specific screens from that prototype to a single ticket as the scope of the issue is only a part of the prototype.

    Or is there a workaround?

    This is an important feature to make the Jira integration useful for us.
    I'm using Jira Server in my organisation.

  17. JIRA: Preview of an artboard for artboard link, not of main artboard

    Same problem for integrations in Slack and Jira integrations' previews

    If I am adding or sharing Adobe XD link of a concrete artboard in some project, e.g.:
    https://xd.adobe.com/view/PROJECTID/screen/ARTBOARDID/
    then preview usually is generated not for this concrete artboard that i am sharing, but for the main artboard of the whole project

    So in fact it generates for me this link preview:
    https://xd.adobe.com/view/PROJECTID/

    This is completely illogical, when e.g. in Jira I create a task to implement concrete subpage, but then Adobe XD generates me every time the main page preview...

  18. After Effects Export - Grouped paths as single shape layer

    When sending files to After Effects, add ability for paths that are grouped together to come in as a single shape layer, instead of multiple parented shape layers.

  19. Integration of Overflow plugin

    Please provide to the Overflow plugin the prototyping links.
    Other tools just do that.

    Without this feature we have to redesign all the navigation.

  20. Alternate Input API

    My work involves a lot of non-traditional input devices. From gamepads to custom industrial controllers. Being able to develop middleware on my end and communicate with, let's say, a websocket API into XD would allow for much wider usage at our studio.

    Ex. Websockets, UDP or TCP to control prototype interaction.
