    Please note that stacks is a feature that is intended to be used at design time, and does not dynamically shift the stack in preview. I’m going to rewrite this particular request to be more precisely about the latter suggestion.

  2. Allow component instance overrides to be inherited by all states

    Currently (XD 24.0.22.19), if I drop an instance of a component and then adjust part of it (text in a button, size of the instance, etc.), that override is only applied to the selected state of the instance. So, if I have a button with many states (normal, hover, disabled, active, default action, etc.) I have to manually apply that override to each state of the instance. This is extremely tedious and error prone.

    Please provide the ability to have an override of an instance be inherited by all states in that component instance.

  3. Keep elements properties between states (propagate text)

    It would be awesome to be able to mark some elements inside a compontent to not change some properties on its states, for example, text. If I change the text on the main state, it would change the text inside the other states. With that, I would be able to improve my work on making hover buttons all over my prototype. The way it is now, I need to change the text inside all the states, what makes it impossible.

  4. Show differences between versions

    When multiple users working on the same file, it will be great if we can see which part is changed or modified.

    It is nice to see other people working on the work area realtime but when someone leave the file and come back, it should show them which part has been modified since they leave. Maybe a special highlight or a mark on changed art board.

  5. Create new main component from existing component

    ◆ Overview
    After releasing "State" feature, it's been able to prepare complex interactions like "hover." Following feature may help to reduce required time preparing a new component with similar behaviors/instructions.

    ◆ Actual
    New component with state settings every time when a similar behavior is expected in different look and feel.
    (Currently, preparing another XD file is believed to be the only solution to avoid this by selecting "Make it as local component" after loading it from another XD file.")

    ◆ Expected
    By select "Use it as a new Master Component" is to make a new Master component instead of copying…

  6. Allow 3D Transformations in States

    Please allow to use different 3d Transformations between the States so you can use 3d Transform as a hover effect or something else.

    Currently the 3D Transform Options adapt to all States when you change it on the component.

  7. Force a path into a shape so you can edit it like a shape.

    It would be be nice if there was a right-click option like "force path to shape." Paths do not have the edit options that shapes do.

    For example, when I take a rectangle and change the edges or add new corners, XD automatically changes this to a "path." I've done this both intentionally and accidentally.

    If I want to change this shape back to a rectangle so that I can edit the border radius, I have to redraw and restyle that shape from scratch. It would be really cool if Xd could identify the closest shape and force into that…

  8. Allow negative values for Stack elements distance

    We should be able to set negative distance for Stack groups. Would allow to have elements partially hidden under another.

    It's possible to do this with Repeat Grid - set negative distance between grid elements. Not sure why you didn't allow us to do the same with Stack.

  9. Drop shadow spread

    My request is two fold but both relate to shadows.

    In brief

    Include shadow properties that related fully to CSS
    Include the ability to save named shadow profiles for reuse


    Details

    Include a crucial forth property to drop shadows that is actually part of the CSS spec and will enable designers to more accurately communicate their specifications to developer – include SHADOW SPREAD.

    Example declaration in CSS;

    box-shadow: [x-offset] [y-offset] [blur] [spread]

    Additionally, please include the ability to save drop shadow profiles so they can be updated easily and will be applied to all relevant designs. It is time consuming…

    Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best when you only have a single request per ticket, so I’m going to repurpose this specific ticket for the drop shadow spread. Please do feel free to file your second idea as a new ticket. Thanks!

  10. Comments for coediting files

    We need to have a way to leave comments on specific objects or artboards in files with coediting enabled. Should be able to tag other people, assign the comment, and resolve when completed. Bonus points if you can integrate with, like, asana or trello or whatever.

  11. Layout Grid Linked Left & Right Margin

    I believe, this is major bug in Adobe XD, Photoshop Guid Layout is perfect. In this way out layout is not going to be in center. If we use Align Center then there is no use.

    If I enter any value to "linked left and right align" feature, it automatically convert to "Different margin for each section" feature.

    I guess the issue is column width. It need to be calculate automatically.

  12. Stacks should be able to grow up and to the left

    The new stacking function is very good and complements the padding function.

    However, on some occasions the direction of the stacks is not necessarily (from top to bottom) or (from left to right).

    I believe that adding two more stack options: (from bottom to top) and (from right to left) can improve the creation of interfaces more easily.

  13. To be able to edit layers on top of a locked one

    If I have overlapping layers and I want to edit one of them, I usually lock the ones I do not want edited/ to move. Using Illustrator, I can draw a rectangle and set it as my artboard background and work freely without it going anywhere. I can't seem to do this in Adobe XD.

  14. Component variants (parent-child, inheritance)

    While Adobe XD Team has certainly done an amazing work toward design systems creation in the tool, it still lack a bit of power.

    Actually, it's quite tedious to create, maintain and use a design system in XD. Especially when working with multiple variants of a component.

    Let's say I need too work on an app design and I want create my buttons in my design system : primary, secondary, alert, w/icon, large, small...

    With the current XD, I only have 2 solutions and both have are really time consuming to maintain :

    1. I need to create a separate component…

  15. Color Agnostic Character Styles

    I want the option when setting up character styles that there doesn't need to be a color associated with the character style.

    For example, I set up my H1, H2, H3 with their respective font families, font weight, & font size. But my design has different background colors. Sometimes my H1 is lack on a white background, which is how I set it up in the Character Styles. While other times my H1 is white on a black background,. But if I change the H1 to white it no longer correlates to the H1 I setup in my character styles…

  16. Responsive font size for different screens

    Designing for web means mocking up, at minimum, for desktop and mobile. I have to create separate heading styles for both device sizes. Would be so so nice if I could define font sizes based on device widths for each heading style and swap them all at once, rather than tediously going through the mockups and updating each text box one-by-one.

  17. Component override lost when copying between files

    Our preferred workflow is to have a Xd-beta file for new development. When changes here are implemented the design gets moved to another file.

    However, when copying artbords that contains components with overrides, these overrides are lost when the artbord is pasted in a new file. (both Xd-files are connected to the same master component file)

    Would love if this could be fixed.

    Hi All -

    Can you please detail out what’s your current workflow today in XD that lands you into that situation?

    In other words, are the documents that you’re pasting into linked to the source document? are they “Saved As” versions of the source documents.

    This extra info will help us identify what the issue is.

    Thanks,
    Sherif

  18. Make shortcut hotkeys for text align (left, center, right)

    There should be keyboard hotkey shortcuts to quickly edit the text alignment.

    SHIFT+ OPTION + L (Used to pull up my CC Library.. not as important.)
    SHIFT+ OPTION + R (Used to reload my plugins... not as important )
    SHIFT+ OPTION + C (NOT IN USE... maybe use this shortcut and have the 3 options cycle each time you hit it, left, center, right.)

  19. Rearrange Component States in Property Inspector

    I'd love to be able to rearrange the component state order in the property inspector (the panel on the right in Design mode & Prototype mode). I would also love to be able to resize the section for component states. Currently it maxes out at 4 before you need to scroll.

  20. Allow fractional pixels / turn off pixel snapping

    The current feature of switching on/off snapping by holding "Cmd" in Mac or "Ctrl" in Windows doesn't work properly. Additionally, we couldn't align shapes or objects with one another as there isn't feature to turn on/off the snap to pixel grid for the entire document.

    Please note that the Cmd/Ctrl keyboard shortcut you’ve mentioned below is actually used for turning off snapping to other objects and to the layout or square grid. I’ll merge this with another request.
