  1. Comment on overlay layer

    When adding development notes to an overlay page, the pins are fixed to the page behind the overlay causing the pins to be in the wrong position when you have a scroll-able modal overlay. It would be helpful if the pins could be fixed to the overlay itself so the pins stay in context.

  2. Export SVG group as individual object

    The developer mode currently is exporting my SVGs as various individual files, although I'm grouping them in .xd file before exporting.

    This is giving me headaches, as often Developers will send e-mails requesting the images corrected to program the front-end of a webpage. This highly affects the workflow and productivity, as I have to go by every single one and export as .png.

    This happens often when I need to edit icons and vectors in XD on the fly, by adding new elements and grouping them together. Would be nice if grouping these modifications would be enough to export them…

  3. Remember previously selected flow view setting in Design Specs

    It would be much better if setting highlighted on the screenshot with red square would be remembered every time I open the page

  4. Increase scroll speed in design spec one-up view

    In the https://xd.adobe.com/spec/xyz-xyz../screen/xyz-xyz... screens, I regularly read a design that spans about 2 to 5 pages or screenfuls. Scrolling this in Google Chrome with a regular basic corded logitech mouse is slow. Scrolling to the next page takes 2 or 3 full scroll motions on the physical scroll wheel.

    Scrolling through five pages consequently takes 10 to 20 scroll motions. This is unusable. Any other webpage has a reasonable scroll speed with my computer settings and hardware.

    There also is not a draggable scroll-bar handle like on every other application that I have ever used on a computer. Why?

  5. Prioritize color names over hex values in Design Spec

    Small detail, but as we define design system elements, the names of those elements are more important than the technical value.

    In this case, for colors, the name of the color asset is more important than the hex value. Please swap the display of those values to reflect the importance...or provide the ability to turn that hex value off since, in some cases, developers should only be referencing the name anyway.

  6. Provide ability to turn off CSS section in Design Specs

    In design specs, there is a CSS section with a lot of great information. However, for some users, it is relevant and potentially harmful. It'd be great to be able to turn that section off so that it isn't displayed.

    Some examples
    Some of our products are desktop products, built in C# and XAML. CSS is not relevant for our tech stack.

    The CSS shows absolute, hardcoded values for position, size, color, etc. This is the opposite of what we want to communicate to development. They should be using relative values or referenced resources from our design system for those…

  7. Underlined text doesn't show in Design Specs

    When you copy a paragraph from specs and some of the text is underlined in the design/prototype, it would be great if the underline was copied as well?

    This could be easily left off by the developer.

  8. Expand design spec inspector by default

    I'd like to be able to choose to have the property inspector already open in development view. It would save having to describe how to click on the icon to engineers every time.

  9. Snapshots of web pages for inspiration

    It would be nice if people could enter in a web page URL of a page that inspires them from anywhere on the net, then click a simple button that snaps a full page image for quick importing of that page into XD, then shows the dimensions or at least it makes it easy to measure the exact dimensions that the original developer used within the page. This will help people learn from other designers creations because learning their layouts and dimensions cand be a tricky task sometimes.

  10. Design specs for single artboards

    Whenever I make a change to my document of a multitude of artboards the system "renders trough" the whole document with all artboards altough I have only made changes to a couple of them. Would be nice if we could update them selectively, that way the process of updating the design specs would be shorter. Right now the process gets longer and longer as the document grows.

  11. Boxed Text with different size and colors within are not being able to be distinguished in designs specs given to developers

    While working developers where not able to get information on size of text or color in a boxed text which had a different size and color ontop then the bottom part. Is there a way where probably a developer would be able to highlight text in a targeted area to get character style and color?

  12. Click the label and copy the hex color code as a simple code snippet

    Currently you can see the hex color code and copy to your clipboard (i.e. #ffffff). To save a step in programming, it would be nice to copy a code snippet instead (i.e. background-color: #f0f0f0;).

  13. Character styles—order by size, color, weight (similar to Zeplin)

    I think it would be helpful if the Character Styles were listed in groups in order of the font that has the largest size. Since devs are usually programming things by defining the biggest to smallest (H1 > H2 > H3 > P), this would help us to see what we're up against. Next, if we added in a second font weight with a variety of colors, we would collect by the size-1st, color-2nd and weight-3rd (favoring the lighter weight to be listed first).

  15. Publish Design Spec on Save

    Design Specs have quickly become an integral part of our workflow. It would be incredibly helpful if there was an option on Save that would allow you to Publish a Design Spec at the same time, thereby making it so every time the designer saves, the developer can have updated Design Specs.

  16. Customize HEX color code rules in Design Specs

    When I copy HEX color codes to clipboard in Design Specs, I can get the color code like this:

    FF12BF

    FFFFFF

    But, sometimes I want to get the color code like this:

    ff12bf

    ffffff

    Or like this:

    ff12bf

    fff

    Or like this:

    FF12BF

    FFF

    So, I want to choose HEX color code rules in Design Specs.
    I think that engineers will support XD by responding to various coding rules.

  17. Font label support in design specs

    Designers are able to add colors, fonts, icons, and many more to the library asset. We're able to even provide custom names to our assets.

    When designers share their work, which is made up of assets from library, developers are able to see the custom names for colors, icons, and components.

    But for whatever reason, you cannot see the names of the fonts (Name should be Body-xsmall). Could this feature be added?

  18. Xamarin/and or Firebase plug-in

    My devs are using Xamarin. It would be nice to share my file with them in a way that makes it quicker for them to code my prototype. This might be dumb but I thought I might as well ask.

  19. Delete all unresolved comments.

    I have very old comments that might have been resolved before, but i can't delete or find out where are the comments, there is no way to delete or resolve this comments, clicking on them it gets me to the wrong artboard and I can't replicate the actions to make this comments appear, either give us the option to delete this comments or improve the display of this comments inside components.

  20. Preview graphic on the property inspector when clicking on an element on the artboard

    Sometimes designers forget to name their layers and hand them off via the design spec sheet. It would be nice to be able to see a preview of the graphic on the specs sidebar when you click it on the artboard.

    For example I click an image on the artboard, and the spec sidebar it tells me that i've clicked on Group 114, but I'm not exactly sure if it's the graphic that I need because it's a grouped layer. I know I can right click to view layers, but it would just a be a whole lot more convenient…
