  1. Use Mobile Device to Show Palettes

    Is there a way you could create the ability to use a mobile device to display actionable palettes?

    I use a two display setup on my desktop. When I travel I have to use my laptop which means I can't have very many palettes available without using up my project workspace on screen.

    What if I could connect my mobile device via usb or bluetooth and have actionable palettes displayed there. I could have several palettes onscreen on a tablet, or on a phone, then I could just swipe left or right to the palette I wanted. I could then…

      • Shared XD libraries

        Need to share Adobe XD assets library to other CC users. Not only Illustrator CC libraries, but XD colors/fonts/symbols lybraries. It's a must!

        • Responsive Resizing of Symbols

          The new responsive resize function seems pretty great, but it would take it to the next level for me if I could use it with symbols. This would make form fields and components super easy!

                  • Timed animations triggered while scrolling

                    i hope we can trigger the timed auto animations when you scroll to a portion of your website mock. I want my elements to appear only when i pass thru them in my page prototype. This feature will create a more seamless, animation rich prototypes!

                    • Overlay positioning below "fold"

                      I would like to be able to position an overlay so that it is connected to a specific element regardless of whether that element is below the "fold". For tooltip, dropdown menus, and other interactive elements, overlays are awesome. However, in doing responsive design work for enterprise applications, there are many instances where a dropdown or tooltip will appear below the fold.

                      • Overlay States

                        I would like the ability to move an overlay through it's own transitions without impacting the underlying area.

                        For example, let's say you have a button that says Help.
                        Click Help
                        Overlay slides in with message box, asks a question.
                        User clicks Yes. Msgbox transitions to a new box, but underlying background (not part of the transition) remains.

                        I have a problem like this where I have a drawer a user can expand over the contents to activate slides and switches. Problem is, once you start trying to use that toolbox, the background is lost.

                        Overlays seem to only be…

                        • Disable swiping on mobile prototype

                          Please provide an option to disable swiping between artboards during the Live Preview on the Adobe XD iOS app. I want testers on the mobile app to only be able to navigate using the interactions I've authored. Them being able to swipe at any time prevents me from getting a valid test out of them.

                            • Nested Overlays

                              Allow an Overlay to be applied to another overlay. For example, you have a dialog box Overlay and inside you want to have a drop-down menu which has an Overlay of a list of options. Currently what happens is the drop-down Overlay replaces the dialog Overlay.

                              I think this is something fundamental that would make Overlays even more powerful. Its omission almost feels like a bug.

                              • Options for viewport vs fixed overlay

                                Be able to choose between an overlay that appears over the viewport or an overlay that is fixed to a specific position within the artboard. This way we can account for two types of overlays:
                                1. Overlays that are persistent like menu navigations
                                2. Overlays that are situational like dropdowns within a form

                                    First, thanks for the great new feature of fixed elements / sticky objects. It's wonderful, and simple.

                                    I found that they're very easy to setup, but a pain to maintain. Once you add any other objects to a page with a fixed element, your new object is on top in z-order. So every single time you add an object, you have to remember to bring your fixed elements to the front again. If you forget to do this, your fixed elements will end up being covered up by the new one. Since your new objects may be way below the…

                                    • Advanced Overlay Positioning/Artboard controls

                                      Overlays are a fantastic addition to XD, and I thought these additions would be a great way to expand on the freedom overlays give us:

                                      1. Ability to place overlays on any area of the artboard, including below/above the main view port and off the the side (partially on the artboard)
                                      2. Advanced positioning for overlay placement (i.e. nudging with keyboard)
                                      3. The ability to anchor overlays to scroll with content below it.
                                      4. Not directly related to overlays, but I would like to see the ability to control the location of the top and bottom of the viewport (i.e.…

                                        We need to be able to output design specs to PDF - not all of our clients can access the design specs URLs due to security constraints on their networks so being able to email static PDF design specs is essential to what we do.

                                        • Download assets as JPGs from Design Specs

                                          Please create the option to download assets as JPGs from design specs. As of right now, there are only options to download as PNG or PDF.
