  1. On-canvas gradient control is missing for closed paths

    I create an object with the Pen tool.
    Give it a gradient.
    When I try to edit the gradient, the gradient bar is not appearing within the object. It is impossible to relocate the trajectory of the gradient.

    Other time I change the dimension of that object, the gradients trajectory gets distorted and when I try to change it, it flies around the screen.

  2. Store component with states in CC Libraries

    I noticed that if I add a component with multiple states to the shared library, only the currently active state is stored. Please allow storing the components with all of its states in the library.

  3. Keyboard shortcuts for switching between modes should work on international keyboards

    The new shortcut on mac to toggle between design, prototype and share mode means you can't type a hashtag or euro character. Use a different shortcut tool.

  4. File Save Option :: Local File or Cloud File

    Hello Sir(s),

    Greetings...!! I am using Adobe XD Since last few years back.

    Is it possible to save file offline? Like each time I have to download file from cloud server. Please advice.

    It will be great if we directly save file to local drive. Like photoshop and illustrator.

    Thanks,

  5. Resizing elements within components should resize bounds

    Give us the ability to re-size master components after we create them. Currently if you add/change anything outside of the master component initial size, it gets masked off with no way to resize the master (and then all the instances) of the component.

    Hi XD Community -

    Thanks for your feedback!

    With XD’s August release, you could resize/move/add/remove objects inside a component, and the component bounds will automatically adjust to fit those objects.

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

  6. Why won't this svg open?

    All the icon svg paths in the polaris icon system won't open in XD. It seems to be valid svg and renders in the browser just fine. It also won't open in Illustrator.

  7. A component nested into another component should show the override version rather than the master version when pulled from the menu

    Senario:
    We create a button with a rectangle fill and generic text and turn it into a master component called "button". We then place an instance of that button into a master "footer" component and override the generic text of the button to be specific to the footer. If I now copy/paste the footer component it keeps the override text. If I opt+drag to copy the footer it keeps the override text. BUT if I drag the component out from the component menu all nested components revert back to the text from their masters.

    Expected result:
    Everything in a master…

  8. Rethink the component system

    In a design system we need hierarchy and inheritance. At this point XD handles these a really poor way.

    Important principles:

    Embedded / nested components
    If I embed a component and change it, the change should be the new default, so when I make new instances of the master, the subcomponent should NOT be reset.

    States
    If I create a new state, and change the elements / subcomponents, only the property changes I made should be saved in the new state. ALL OTHERS should be exactly as in the master. This should work in the property level, so if the…

    We’ve added support for nested components and have improved states and resizing. Feel free to file a new ticket if you’re interested in additional features.

    Please note for future reference that UserVoice works best if you have each idea in a separate ticket.

  9. Move Fix Position when scrolling back to design mode

    i ve just noticed you removed the preserve scroll position from design. This is a horrible thing for me. Doing that forces me to prototype EVERYTHING.

    for example: i have 100 artboards that are unconnected due to time saving ( i dont need to prototype everything ) but moving that button forces me to do it becaus now i cant make a quick preview for my client where he can scroll up and down. Now i will have to connect ALL 100+ boards together.

    why? Because when you are EXPORTING for REVIEW or DEVELOPMENT
    only the connected boards are being…

  10. Use ALT/Option key + click and drag to duplicate object in stack.

    As an Adobe Xd user that uses many stack groups, I would like to quickly duplicate individual items within a stack.

    See video attached for example:
    1. Outside of stack groups the default behavior of holding ALT/Option key while clicking and dragging an object is to duplicate it.
    2. Holding ALT/Option key on an object within a stack group does nothing.
    3. (Workaround) Copy / Pasting an object within a stack group with Command+C & Command+V duplicates the object in the correct location.

    This is 1 of 2 minor bugs I've found with stacks, but I think I'm only finding…

  12. Auto layout

    There is one thing that frustrates me every time I work with XD.
    The moment when the height of an element changes and I have to adjust all margins and the height of e.g. cards. And all because the text of a line got shorter.

    Figma recently introduced "Auto layout". This allows to define the margins of elements within a "group" and thus complex list/grids that dynamically adapt to the content.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrKX46DzkGQ

    It would be great if, after "Content aware layout (padding), the margin could now be addressed.

  13. See others' cursors while coediting

    It would be great esp. in a larger file to see where my teammate(s) is working. I realize there is presence but the colored stroke is hard to find at times.

    Ideas:

    • A cursor icon of where they are in the doc (even if they are not selecting an object) or perhaps greyed out while they are working on something.

    • The ability to click on their profile icon to be directed to where they are
    This could be great if you are on a call with a designer elsewhere to pinpoint whatever they are working on.

  14. Horizontal and Vertical Stacks

    Using stacks in both horizontal and vertical orientations would bring the prototype much closer to to how development works, specially in mobile, providing much more relatable deliverables.

    A "spacing" property could also be used in the stack, providing better control over the design.

    A toggle between horizontal and vertical is something that would help but is not necessary.

  15. Update the Google Material Design UI Kit linked in-app (link no longer updated)

    The link to Google Material Design is outdated, and the new page does not include an XD document. Can this be updated please making use of the components and button states and other new features?

  16. Disable Help Tips Option

    Provide an option to disable all helpful tips that popup as you're trying to use the application.

    This would be valuable to me, as otherwise it's disrupting my flow of trying to create some screens. They're distracting, I've already watched all the tutorials on your XD page, so I'm aware of the features, they don't add anything new.

    It makes sense to have these "on" by default, but some option to disable them is expected, and would be very helpful.

  17. Make non-apple devices first class citizens too

    The first thing I see on XD is a choice to create a new design. The predefined items have a multitude of Apple devices and a token "Android" or "Custom" option.

    The real world mostly use non-Apple devices. There are many different sized android phones & Tables, Chromebooks, Windows Surface etc. It is about time Adobe products recognised this and treated non-apple hardware as a first class citizen and not an after thought.

    Support what our customers need, not what you personally prefer.

  18. Change Save As behavior to remove Copy of

    Remove "Copy of" text from filename when I "Save As" — Change to number increment

    Every time I want to save a new iteration of my file, I hit Command+Shift+S to "Save As".

    XD automatically adds "copy of" to the beginning of the filename and I have to delete it every. Single. Time.

    Does anybody actually names their files this way? You'd end up with "copy of copy of copy of copy of filename" instead of a simple numbered "filename 5".

    Would be cool to see XD smartly increase the number by 1 every time like it does with the artboards.…

  19. Design responsively with Auto Layout

    Spend more time iterating and less time moving things around.

    Less manual resizing: Buttons can resize with their text and lists can rearrange themselves when items are moved around.

    Stretch to fill: Auto Layout components can now stretch left and right (or top and bottom) for easier responsive design.

    Design speaks development: Auto Layout’s padding, direction, and spacing settings translate directly into code, simplifying developer handoffs.

  20. Automatically resize Area Text box height when changing width with responsive resize

    When using Responsive Resize, items will adjust according to their parameters but items such as Area text will not take into account their contents. When resizing an Area Text box, XD should provide the option to resize the height in line break increments to accommodate the text.

    An option for width could also be useful.

    The benefit of this is that responsive resize will now responsively adjust all other elements to fit.
