  1. Protopie Export - Retain Element Types

    Not sure if this is something XD would do or Protopie.

    Currently when exporting to Protopie there are no options aside from which artboards to send. When the elements come over they are all flattened to bitmap images. Protopie seems to have almost the exact same element types as XD but they currently do not link to one another and there is no option to select bitmap or text/editable vector. This is great for text since it means users won't need to have the fonts installed to view the prototype correctly on mobile. But it is a serious issue when…

  3. compatibility with PaintCode

    Feature request - ability to import canvases, SVG animations, PNG sequences, and basic interactivity from PaintCode App (by PixelCut.com). Visual animation enabling PNG sequences would be valuable for iOS prototyping Xcode / Swift.

  4. Coediting in MS-Teams synced file

    Just like the co-editing feature that came out in November 2019 where we can do real time collaboration on a CC cloud document... Please do a similar thing with Microsoft Teams synced file.

    Right now we can work on a same file that is synced in MS-Teams, but cannot do realtime saving and changes. Please do it real time coediting :)

  5. 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 Library (I'm putting…

  7. 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…

  8. Convert sketch library state recognition

    In sketch, you can have various states of a button based on size of the artboard and symbol in the "control" artboard and naming convention. When importing my library system to XD, XD does not recognize any of my states and simply imports them all as individual symbols. Please make it so XD can understand states from sketch libraries and implement them as proper states in an imported library.

  9. Auto Activation of fonts from Suitcase

    All other Adobe Programmes allow for font auto-activation from Extensis Suitcase. Can we add it to XD?

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
    Thanks

  13. Import mesh gradient & freeform gradient from Illustrator

    从AI 画的效果不能完全到复制XD上 类似网格渐变


    Admin note: this request is about simply importing the correct appearance from AI. If you want to create or edit this kind of gradient in XD, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/36364030-create-edit-freeform-gradients.

  14. 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 !

  15. Asset type definition

    I'm not what most would consider a Pro user but I've always loved and supported Adobe's application integration (the 'edit with' submenu, smart object, linked item, etc.) So maybe a nice implementation with the eventual integrations with 'send to Muse', or 'convert to Illustrator artboards', etc. might be:

    Upon importing an asset or making a symbol, since these may be simply placeholders for actual assets, would be to have the ability to give them a definition of 'type'. This could be a variety of things but if you're prototyping a spot for a carousel but the content isn't yet made…

  16. Integration with Illustrator Symbols

  18. Copy and paste into illustrator from Adobe Xd

    Please bring back this feature. Copying XD vector content to the clipboard and then paste it as fully editable layers into Adobe Illustrator was a super powerful and useful feature.

    Sometimes I need to export elements that were created on Xd to illustrator for print or social media, and every time I do this, I have to use the CC libraries now.

  19. Integration of Tableau app visualizations

    It would be nice to be able to integrate a link handoff to the mobile tableau app to be able to view fully interactive visualizations.

    What this would look like is if someone is viewing the xd app on a mobile device, an icon or text link would prompt the tableau app to open and display a visualization..

  20. Plugin/Syncing with Envato Elements

    With Envato Elements increasingly gaining in popularity I would love to see the elements available on that platform integrated into the Adobe and Adobe XD offering. I currently use and love Envato Elements, so please make this happen :D
