  1. Folders for cloud documents

    Our team names xd files to link to jira tickets. It'd be very helpful for the cloud to have a folder structure for separating releases into batches.

  2. Top Navigation Pane (Windows)

    You really can make it true
    And Windows UWP Guidelines allows it
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design/controls-and-patterns/navigationview

    See my example.

    Why is this valuable to me?
    This (top menu pane) more convenient for me, and lot of other people, burger menu is painful option for all Windows users

    Thank you.

  3. Quicker navigation to plugins pane on Windows

    Accessing plugins on Windows is a minimum of 3 clicks (usually 4 since most plugins have their own sub-menu). This is very tiresome with the workflow of most plugins, which require you to rerun them anytime you want to try a different feature or change something. Mac users have a native top navigation bar, so plugins are only 1-2 clicks away for them, which is an improvement but still pretty annoying with some plugins.

    The current Windows workflow for interacting with a plugin is this:
    Hamburger Menu>Plugins>"Plugin">"Plugin Option"

    There are several ways this could be improved for Windows users (and…

  4. Show local link to cloud document (but still edit offline)

    With the new version of XD, you now have 2 options to Save: Cloud Documents, Your Computer...

    Say I've saved a file to Cloud Documents. If I want to work on this file offline, I have to plan ahead to save this file to my computer too; that's double the clicks. And I have to remember which file is the most up-to-date to replace the old one, which is not good user experience in terms of human memory. Can we have an option to automatically save a copy to our computers with Automatic Sync?

    While I'm at it, can I…

  5. Adjust Save As dialog to make it easier to save

    With the new update it became more annoying to save files. To achieve the same purpose have increased clicks to do (just to push the save on Adobe cloud that frankly I do not care at all). Moreover, the "save as" has become a "save a copy" even if the name in menu is just "save as". This means that the word "copy" is inserted automatically in the file title. I have never seen a person of common sense use the suffix "copy" on the naming of the files but rather a sequential number. So I'm forced every time to…

    Hello Asif:

    Sorry to hear you’re having issues accessing your XD Cloud document.

    Can you please confirm the version of Win10 & XD you’re working with? How about the version of Creative Cloud Desktop app? This will help better understand what might be happening.

    I have seen this error in the past. For that case, the team was able to fix and make available in our latest update, XD 18.1.12.1

    If you’re still seeing this problem, some things to try:
    - Restart system. This will restart the Adobe Sync service which might have gotten in a bad state
    - Accept or run updates to the Creative Cloud application. Sometimes, pending updates can interfere with Adobe Sync resulting in errors. Here’s a help page with a few more details for your reference.

    Hope this helps!
    Nina

  7. Search XD file content from Finder

    Sometimes I remember the name of a button or notes I left in the document. And it would be very helpful to allow macOS to index files plain text content and make it searchable by Finder! Same applicable to Windows/Explorer combination.

  9. Bring the Clear Recents menu item back

    Thought that the ability to clear the recent list used to be available but not seeing it anymore in the File > Open Recent menu. If it's gone—please bring it back.

  10. Share for Review on XD mobile App (for non designer stakeholders)

    What would solve some review issues with mobile app designs; is to allow stakeholders to download the XD mobile app (not designers) and for them to be able to open the shared link https://xd.adobe.com/view/xxxxxx/ and then they can view the prototype on their device similar to how an app works (without having to create a CC account). It's way to large a document to share the whole file with a non-designer stakeholder.

    Xd Viewer app tried to solve this issue, but it is slow and glitchy. (please see what they tried to do)

    I find using the browser Safari or…

  11. strobing background

    Every time I move my mouse across the screen or zoom, the background seems to strobe. I spend most of my day looking at XD, so this is really starting to mess with my head. Dear god, make it stop.

  13. Better plugin management interface; filters, sorting, what's new, tags, what's popular, ratings and feedback

    As more and more plugins are added the the Xd ecosystem, this will quickly become an over-saturated market where distinguishing between high-quality, helpful tools and junk addons will become very difficult.

    It will also become increasingly difficult to view, manage, update, and check out new plugins. I would love to see some better filtering options so I can quickly see what's new, what's trending, which of my current plugins need updates, etc. Tagging and categorizing plugins, providing popularity, feedback and ratings would also help establish a better experience for all users.

    I also find many plugins so far do not…

  14. Progress indicator for saving cloud files

    I am currently saving a larger file and it just says "saving" for a while now. Granted, my internet is rather slow, but it would be nice and give me some peace of mind if I could actually see how far the saving has progressed than being left in the dark about it

  15. Sessions With Adobe XD Customers

    If Adobe could provide online sessions, or in their stores, with customers who use Adobe XD. To explain, many people aren't familiar with the tool and it takes a lot of practice. This occurs to me, and one of the big tech companies are already doing this, Apple. There is something called 'Today At Apple,' which includes loads of different sessions to help customers. (Link https://www.apple.com/today/) If Adobe XD could include this within the app on Mac or the phone app, it would be useful for it's customers.

  16. Change default save location to local file system

    XD insists on saving my documents to Cloud Documents by default all the time. I haven't made such a decision and there's' no way of changing the default. I wanna save to "Your Computer" all the time. I really miss a "Remember this choice" option. Please stop making decisions on my behalf Adobe.

  17. hover animation / effects

    We need hover effects to make fully functional prototypes! Simple things such as background color change on hover. This with the newly added auto-animate would make XD fully capable of making convincing prototypes without having to leave the client guessing / imagining.

  18. Shortcuts don't work in other languages

    I'm using the English version of Adobe UX and a Farsi keyboard. But I can't use shortcuts when I'm using Farsi. I have to change the keyboard language in order to use shortcuts.

  19. Option to switch from thumbnails to list view on recent projects on opening screen.

    Most file names are too long to be read in thumbnail view, I would prefer to see them in a list. I would be useful to have the option to switch just like in PS' opening screen.

  20. Save as dialog confusion

    After update this dialog box confuses and I find its very complicated. Please use system UI instead of this new one. Because I rename the file and when I hit enter it saves in last location without asking me.
