  1. Text formatting

    Where are the text formatting tools present on Photoshop and illustrator ?
    - underline
    - all in capital
    - small capital
    - superior/exponent
    - inferior/sign
    - barred

    Even making a copy / paste formatting of the text isn't preserved.

    Waiting for an answer from Adobe XD Team

    Best regards

    • Static / Fixed objects between transitions

      When I swipe between screens I do not want the header and footer bar to slide with the transition, just the content area. Please create a function for this

      • CONVERT TO CODE

        We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.

          Hi, all-

          “Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.

        • Fullscreen Prototype

          1. Full screen should go full screen. InVision App allows a full-screen takeover when viewing a prototype. Why does the content go into a small rectangle centered in the browser with Adobe product notes in the corners? I am designing full screen, the prototype should follow that format. There is no need to see things like the date and time or "Made with Adobe XD." My client doesn't care, they are not designers. The client is my focus.

          2. Upon clicking the "Fullscreen" button in the top corner, the screen still has a black background bordering the content. It should…

          • Label assets

            I love the recent addition of the Colors, Character styles and Symbols in the Assets panel.

            I think it would be an improvement to be able to label the assets. Especially the Character styles. When having a lot of them it would be easier to find the right style by naming them.

            For example:

            Sub-header Android
            Roboto
            Medium - 14pt

            Sub-header iOS
            SF UI Text
            Regular - 13pt

              • Return the Fill eyedropper to its previous location and add a keyboard shortcut

                I rely heavily on the color picker, and it is now two clicks away instead of one. Furthermore, there's no keyboard shortcut for it. Returning the color picker to its previous collection and/or adding a keyboard shortcut will save me a lot of time in the long run.

                This is a crosspost of "Color picker now 2 clicks away" under the Bugs section: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/32248015-color-picker-now-2-clicks-away

                • Name Character Styles

                  It would help a great deal if Character Styles can be named. Right now it is tough managing them and knowing which is which.

                  • Get assets on design spec mode

                    On the design specs mode, I should be able to direct developers to where a specific asset is. Sometimes I want to attach a link to an asset (if it's common use, a logo hosted on S3 for an example), sometimes the dev needs to be able to download the asset (be it an image already scaled to 1x, 2x, etc or the code of an SVG to embed into a page) and the third case is that I need to attach some free text (for example a path on our local server or the icon code on font awesome…

                      • Reorder assets within the Asset Panel

                        Manually drag-n-drop to sort assets in the Assets window

                        Problem:
                        Assets in the Asset window are not always sorted per expectation.
                        Example-1: If during a project I create a tint of a certain color, I may want to place that swatch next to its parent color.
                        Example-2: I need to sort my color assets in accordance with our style-guide and have the primary prior to my secondary colors.

                        Solution:
                        Be able to drag-n-drop assets in the Asset window to sort them manually.

                          • Make Design Spec publicly accessible

                            At the moment, my development team do not have an adobe subscription, and I often work with external organisations who also do not use adobe either.

                            As a result, I need the ability to share a public link to the design specs so that they can access it.

                              • Find Missing Font

                                When you open a document and it says a font is missing, but tracking down that missing font can be a nightmare.

                                Often this can occur when moving from one system to another (home to work for example), so doing a find and replace would be very helpful, but just finding the "issue" would be invaluable, because sometimes a type box may not be readily visible to even find it to correct.

                                • 7-Day Trial not long enough for purchase decision

                                  Update to XD CC version today.

                                  I've been using XD for a while now and have been a big fan ...up until today.

                                  Like many others, I've invested a lot of time testing out this product. Also like others, I've done this on real projects in order to put XD to the test; see if it works for my workflow and so on. It was a risk I knowingly took.

                                  However, with such a short trial window for the official release, I feel like Adobe now has me over a barrel. There have been a few critical features missing which…

                                  • Showing Layers AND Assets at the Same Time

                                    I can't believe this suggestion doesn't already exist, but I work on a 32" or a 27" monitor all the time. I have plenty of screen real estate. Why not let me view both Assets and Layers panels at the same time?

                                    • Re-enable the feature to add your own icon to Prototypes

                                      In the Beta vesion of XD there used to be a feature to add an icon (client logo etc.) to the Prototypes, so if you saved it to your homescreen (iOS) the icon would act as the favicon/home screen icon. This seems to have been dissabled in the official release, can we have it back as it was very useful. Ironically my old prototypes still have the icon in them and I no longer have any way of updating/removing them

                                      • Better svg export

                                        Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
                                        the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

                                        It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

                                        A cleaner svg would…

                                          Hi,

                                          The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

                                          Cheers,
                                          M.

                                          Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

                                          At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

                                          Thanks!

                                          Best regards,
                                          Guy
