  1. Wifi connectivity for XD app (not connecting only by USB cable)

    Instead of being able to connect only by a USB cable, the ability to connect via wifi. Any roadmap for this would be useful to know.

  2. Animations that react to a phone's accelerometer

    In a perfect world I would like have dynamics animations on differents layers when you scroll or move the phone. It will improve a lot the possibilities of the soft.

  4. Embed fonts for 'untethered' mobile preview from Creative Cloud

    Would be nice if fonts were embedded into the XD file. If not you aren't able to preview the app design with the correct font from iOS or android when syncing from creative cloud.

  5. Apple Watch Preview App

    Apple watch Adobe XD app (that runs on Apple watch watch).
    Wouldn't require many additional features compared to its iPhone counterpart.

    - Support for 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch sized artboards within Adobe XD (desktop)
    - Support for linked objects/hotspots within the watch previewer app
    - Transition effects visible within the watch previewer app
    - Close prototype by using force touch within the watch previewer app
    - Support for fixed headers

  6. Save all prototypes locally on device

    Actually, the app stores just the last prototype. Please keep all prototypes on device, in a simple list, always available and organizable.

    Thanks for your feedback. We definitely have this feature in the roadmap. Soon, you’ll be able to manage XD documents stored in CC Files from mobile (search, list, delete) & toggle to save specific projects for offline viewing.

  7. Add some basic editing features for mobile app

    Hope to see some basic editing features for mobile app. This could be really helpful for prototyping.

  8. Locate & Open Prototypes in Creative Cloud Mobile App

    Actually, it would be nice to have access to all the prototypes through the CC mobile app.

    Now, when I'm on smartphone you have to go to the assets.adobe.com and find them there. But assets.adobe.com is not user friendly on mobile.

    In the future, you’ll be able to access your Web Prototypes published from Adobe XD on desktop, from your mobile app.

    But today, if you need to access XD documents (with just designs or with prototypes) from your device. If you place your XD documents in your CC Files folder on desktop, you can now load them from Adobe XD on mobile. Make sure you have your document saved and synced in your CC Files folder on desktop, then open Adobe XD on your mobile device. Tap on the folder icon and choose “XD Document from Creative Cloud”, or if you’re viewing an XD document, long press and tap on “Open XD Document > XD Document from Creative Cloud”. What’s interesting here is that we have a full version of Adobe XD running on the mobile device to open each XD document.

  10. Support for new 2018 iPad Pro

    I would like Adobe XD to have proper support for the new iPad Pros that was released this year.

    In particular, I would like the presentations to ignore the safe areas. That helps me ensure that the UI elements I design near the bottom do not interfere with the home affordance. Maybe the right idea to convey is "full screen".

    This might need to be a setting of some sort, however, because I could also be trying to demo a version on older iPad Pros, in which case the current presentation, which is inset, scaled down a little, but avoids…

  11. Option to scale design in live preview to match phone width

    At my agency we don't necessarily design at the exact dimensions of the phone we preview with. This results in pillarboxing (a black border around the entire screen). For example, we will create pixel perfect grids that make our workflow much faster, but it makes the screen size something like 360px wide. When previewed on an iPhone 6/6s/7, which has 375px dimensions, there is a border around the screen.

    Adding an option to scale the design to match your device's width would solve the problem.

  12. XD Mobile App: 'Refresh' current document

    The XD iOS preview app should have a 'refresh' function.

    I've had the app lose connection several times, and not update even though I am still editing the document.

    A 'refresh' function could re-connect to the currently open document and reload the changes made since the last update.

  13. Open XD files on iOS through Files app and Dropbox (not just creative cloud)

    I would love to be able to open XD files from other sources than Creative Cloud. At work we use Dropbox as our source of truth. It would be great to browse Dropbox or Files app on the iPad (and iPhone) and retrieve the prototype for testing it on a device. As for now I need to make a duplicate of my file and move it to Adobe CC to find it, it’s quite tedious.

    I´m not talking about tethering, only being able to access files outside of Creative Cloud.

  14. Performance very bad on iPad app

    We're a team of designers and developers and I'm using XD as it's super speedy, works across platforms, and the prototyping performs really damn well.

    One of the major frustrations is how long it takes to open documents on the XD iPad app.

    I'm working in a 23MB XD file, and opening it on an iPad (the version released in 2017) easily takes 3-4 minutes. We have 6 iPads and a few iPhones, and it's the same on all of them.

    I'm not sure if it's your servers, or if it's the app, but this performance is unbelievably slow. The…

  16. XD app: Make the default view and initial connection 'Live Preview' not 'XD Documents'

    The most dominant requirement for the app is to view the 'Live Preview' so make this the first option and 'don't make me think' and to have to keep clicking onto 'Live Preview' every time I open the app please. Options should be in this order: Live preview (active on open app), XD Documents, Settings. Thanks guys. James

  17. Allow control over whether or not the scroll position is maintained

    app preview on iPad cannot back to the header

    Hello,

    When i install the adobe Xd app on the iPad, every artboard all scroll from the header to footer perfectly in first time. But, when i back to previous artboard, it will always start the scroll from the footer, not the header.

    the bug only happens on the preview app, but not on the software of my laptop and the share link.

    This is currently as designed, as we maintain the scroll position on mobile. I’ll change this to a feature request. Over time, we’ll be taking a look at allowing control over this over time.

    Thanks,

  18. Allow sign-in from multiple AdobeIDs on mobile XD

    Since you can only activate 2 devices per Adobe ID, I have two of them: One for private use at home and one from where I work.

    I however only have one cellphone and I do not plan on carrying two about all the time.

    This leaves me with following problem: I would have to sign out and in all the time to view my different projects.

    Since this is more of a hassle than just connecting my phone to my PC using a cable I basically never use the whole wireless thingy when I am at work, which is…

  19. Indicate which artboard is currently active on mobile device in XD window

    When users have their mobile device tethered to their machine via USB and are viewing a prototype on that device, as the user traverses through screens it would be helpful to indicate on the computer on the XD canvas which dartboard is currently being shown on the mobile device.

    This would be to help track screen flow as you click through a complex prototype.

  20. Open iCloud XD documents in iOS app

    It would be great to be able to open XD documents that are saved in iCloud Drive, whether through the Cloud Documents tab in the iOS XD app or via a Share Sheet in iCloud Drive.
