  1. 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

    • 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

      • 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.

          -Elaine

        • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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.

                  • Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

                    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

                    • 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.

                      • See all connection in prototype mode

                        Currently in prototype mode, connections disappear unless you click on a board or do cmd-a.

                        We need the ability to see all connections or hide them. Not by "selecting boards" using cmd-a. Just show all connections.

                        People use XD not just to prototype but to pass a desired flow from designers/product to developers. Don't restrict the use case for XD

                        • Fit Textbox to Text

                          I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

                          This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

                          • Pages

                            One of the main reasons I am still on fw is the pages panel. Working with 50-100+ pg flows with artboards is not fun. It would be very helpful to have a pages panel option as well as the artboards. Would make for faster ongoing edits.

                              • 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…

                                • Design Specs for Enterprise customers

                                  I'd love to see a way for for Enterprise customers whose companies have chosen not to permit sharing to be able to take advantage of the Design Specs feature. We need a way to export a local file that shows the specs that we can share on our internal, private networks. Without this, your largest customers are still left drawing design specs by hand.

                                  • New Guide Layout

                                    There needs to be a "New Guide Layout" feature, same as in Photoshop, so that the user can create a baseline grid. See screenshot attached.

                                    This is VERY important.

                                    Grids, guides, and baseline grids, need be implemented.

                                    Thank you!

                                    • Ability to move/organise symbols in the library

                                      Sometimes I have had to redo a symbol, and when I add it to the library it's miles away from the other symbols of its kind.

                                      It would be useful to be able to rearrange symbols manually and/or in categories and/or being able to group them for easy finding when you have hundreds!

                                      • 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

                                        • Artboard names *should not* change to an ellipsis when zoomed out

                                          Since the August 22 release, when zoomed out far enough, artboard names go away and you just see an ellipsis (...). While the artboard names were previously difficult to read (in some cases, text over text), there has to be a better way than removing them completely. Access to the artboard name is important.
