  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…

      • Confluence (Server) Integration

        We need a possibility to embed prototypes and design specs into Confluence (Server version, not Cloud) since we use confluence to manage large ui and software projects. Confluence therefor is the central place to organise user stories, screen designs, prototpyes etc.

          • Export to After Effects at @2x resolution

            Export to AE works great. I do however wish image assets would come in at @2x resolution (or even @3x as an option?). This way the comp wouldn’t end up blurry.

            • Simply make XD full Adobe CC ecosystem friendly...

              Well... after trying many times XD and giving up frustrated after every try, I’ve reached some thoughts about why its still unusable for my “particular” user experience:

              1. I’ve been doing user interface mock-ups with Illustrator for at least a decade, so my skills are focused on be productive with it and import image assets from Photoshop when needed. Then, I haven’t time to face a learn curve on a new design tool. I want to keep using Illustrator.

              2. Being an Adobe CC long time user, I’ve grown with a deep understanding of Adobe CC ecosystem. Each program cooperates…

                Thanks for your feedback.

                1) Our intent is for you to be able to still use Illustrator. We can now open Illustrator files, so you can design in Illustrator, bring your designs over to XD, and then add in motion using our Prototype mode.

                2) You can use Creative Cloud Libraries to update your linked assets across documents. If auto update images is something you’re interested in, there is a feature request in this database you can upvote. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109

                3) It sounds like you’re interested in dark mode, there’s a feature request for that as well. Over time, you’ll see both Illustrator and XD moving to a more universal design system. Hopefully that will help! https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12940362

                Please let us know if you have specific requests beyond those two above.

              • Protopie Export - Retain Element Types

                Not sure if this is something XD would do or Protopie.

                Currently when exporting to Protopie there are no options aside from which artboards to send. When the elements come over they are all flattened to bitmap images. Protopie seems to have almost the exact same element types as XD but they currently do not link to one another and there is no option to select bitmap or text/editable vector. This is great for text since it means users won't need to have the fonts installed to view the prototype correctly on mobile. But it is a serious issue when…

                • After Effects Export - Grouped paths as single shape layer

                  When sending files to After Effects, add ability for paths that are grouped together to come in as a single shape layer, instead of multiple parented shape layers.

                  • Send to After Effects - Choose where to save images

                    Ability to save images in a specific location when sending to AE. I noticed it gets saved to the local disk, but our team works on a server so that isn't ideal.

                    • Integration with zeroheight

                      My company has the design system and components in Zeroheight, as it makes our designs to be consistent and is an easy way to share assets. I would be ideal if XD could integrate this plugin for our work and to push other designers to start using XD (as at the moment they consider this a blocker)

                      • Merge XD & Muse

                        XD is great at prototyping UI/UX, but severely lacks at turning those designs into functional sites and applications.

                        Muse does just that, but is not nearly as fun to design with.

                        Essentially, I'd love to be able to view HTML/CSS properties in XD, but then that's eating into what Muse does. So I suggest merging the two.

                              • Export files to flinto and Principle

                                What I love from XD is the ability to design and prototype in the same tool without having to install hundreds of plugins and the lightweight that it is. Sometimes have to animate things faster with custom animations and I use these tools (Principle and Flinto) to create them. I've been obligated to recreate my designs into this tools then animate. It should be nice to have a export tool to this tools or others.

                                    • Integration or Export the UI to JS React Native file

                                      Hi there! I'm excited with this tool from you.
                                      I came here to suggest few things base in actual ideas going on.

                                      I'm a React Native user. I'm pretty excited with RN too. And I would be glad to merge RN with Xd.

                                      For RN we have few tools (IDE) like Deco IDE (just MAC...) and exponent. Deco is very interesting and Xd could overcome it.

                                      I think create UI inside Xd and transform the it's layers into React native tags would be the simplest way. Adobe XD would not be affected just creanting a kind of "react export". These…

                                      • Drag n drop SVG from a browser

                                        In Sketch 3 I can just drag n drop any SVG from browser (e.g. from http://www.flaticon.com ). But I can't do it in XD. Instead now I have to download file on my computer, than find this and drag file from Finder.

                                        • Export to InVision with assets to support "Motion" and prototyping (like Craft)

                                          I would like Adobe XD to be able to export/sync to InVision to support "Motion".

                                          "Motion" is a closed beta at Invision that supports micro animations/interactions – similar functionality to what thirdparty apps/services like Atomic, Marvel and Flinto has to offer.

                                          By enabling Adobe XD to export its assets to Invision in such a way that "Motion" inside InVision can be applied to the XD wireframes/prototypes/designs inside InVision.

                                          Preferably XD export to InVision should support sync, perhaps via Dropbox.

                                          PS. For the long run XD could add "Motion" functionality inside XD and thus reverse sync the motions from Invision "Motion"…
