  1. Show light assets on dark background in assets panel

    It would also be enormously helpful if I could choose a different background colour for my asset library.

    we are building a dark mode and all the assets are white - so currently I cannot see what anything is at all

    (Moved to another thread: When in Developer handoff - It would be nice to be able to click on a component and see all of the asset it contains in all of its states.)

    I’m repurposing this to be about the background color, as UserVoice works best when you only have one suggestion per ticket. There’s another suggestion about showing component states in design specs, so I’d suggest that you upvote that one! Thanks!

  2. Ability to copy only selected content from design spec text object

    When I design, I often put several paragraphs or bulleted lists in the same text box. When I share my designs with my developer, it is difficult for him to get only the text he needs from the shared development document. When you click on the "Content" section in the right developer spec panel, it automatically copies all of the text in the box (see screenshot).

    It would be helpful if there were a way to highlight and select only a portion of the text in the content box that you could then copy using a shortcut. You could grab…

  3. Increase zoom range for Design Specs

    The current zoom range for Design Specs goes up to 200%. For small items with intricate details or many parts, a larger max would be very helpful (800, 1600, etc.) for precise selection.

  4. 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.

  5. Adjust colors in Design Specs for better contrast

    Add more color contrast on the css section. It is currently purple and orange on a gray background. It is very hard to read.

  6. Set "Designed at" for exported assets when publishing Design Spec

    We work sometimes on different resolution. And one design can be used for a lot of product. As AdobeXD are built with Design System in mind, it could be great to have the ability to modify the scale of an element when we want to export it.

  7. Android Mobile character Styles Specs must be in "SP"

    Currently when we share Android Layout to the developers it was showing in DP for all in specs but as per platform guidelines prefer when it is character styles specs should be "SP" it is stands for Scale independent pixels. It is same as dp unit but it is also scaled by the user's font size preference.

    Preferable request is meaningful as it will not confuse to the developers hope it make sense.

  8. Ability to check the size of multiple items in Development

    When viewing in the inspector mode in the browser, would be ideal to be able to select multiple elements at the same time, in order to check the total size. This is necessary for when a developer is building the layout templates.

  9. Design Spec in Inches

    We should be able to see Design specs in inches as well. Some Enterprise development tools (BI TOOLS) only support Inches as the measurement value.
    So we are able to design, review and prototype but can't share design specs, that's still a manual process.

  10. Option to remove "resolve" button in Design Specs

    I would really like to have an option so that the resolve button is not visible or clickable.
    I use the “share for development feature” to give students extra help, but if they mistakenly click resolve, the help is gone, and then other students would not be able to get the help, so it would be nice to make the, resolve the button not visible or clickable

  11. Increase contrast and size of Design Spec measurements

    The pink with white type for specs is hard to read. Not ADA compliant. And when I enlarge the board to see the specs the specs don't enlarge. The board does but the text in the spec doesn't. See the video.

  12. "L" shaped elements cover and prevent the selection and identification/specs of everything below them.

    Please look at this XD "Design Specs" file:
    https://xd.adobe.com/spec/37ccb941-8fd4-4a7f-6223-499948dc3fcb-41fd/

    The "L" shaped elements (colored RED and FUCHSIA in the file) cover and prevent the selection of and identification of the specs, of everything below them. Even though these "L" shaped elements are not closed shapes they cover everything below them (BTW, it's the same when there is a surrounding border that is above everything else, layer wise).

    Please, this must be corrected.

    The attached file was "Exported" to PDF.

  13. Don't Delete Color Swatch for Icon Color When Marking Icon for Batch Export

    If you mark an icon for Batch Export (which creates an Asset panel in the design specs) it will remove the color being used for that icon from the Color Swatch panel.

    My workaround is to duplicate my icon in my artboard so that I have a copy that isn't marked for batch export and then the color information for the icon will appear in the Colors panel in the design specs.

  14. Export bitmaps embedded in SVG from Design Specs

    I want to be able to export my elements as SVG from Design Specs with bitmaps linked or embedded, the same way I can on the local system.

  15. Choose platform during download step, not upload step

    Hi,

    Currently we have features that we develop for multiple platforms at once. This means for example we will have feature A, and during a sprint Android, iOS and WeChat developers will build the feature during the sprint.

    Right now the current workflow that we have to follow is to create separate files in order to create separate links because the assets exporting forces us to choose during uploading the platform that we need assets for.

    It would be much easier if we created only one link for that story / feature, and then the dev from their respective platform…

  16. Widen Scroll Bar on Layers Window.

    The scroll bar for the layers window is narrow and takes precise mouse work to select it on a laptop or high resolution screen. Double the thickness so it is easy to select and drag. Great app.

  17. Add WeChat RPX measurement unit

    Hi,

    At the moment we are developing our WeChat Mini-program, however when sharing design specs with developers we are unable to share using WeChat's measurement units, only iOS and Android are supported.

    You can find out more info about WeChat's rpx measurement units here:
