  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.

        • Jira integration is not sufficient

          Now I can only link a full prototype / design spec to a jira issue.
          Our workflow is to (deep)link specific screens from that prototype to a single ticket as the scope of the issue is only a part of the prototype.

          Or is there a workaround?

          This is an important feature to make the Jira integration useful for us.
          I'm using Jira Server in my organisation.

          • 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.

            • 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)

                      • Share, Download and Delete (Cloud Documents must have options online or locally)

                        Currently Cloud Documents when selected only have a Delete option. I believe the document should have more options. Use the three dots menu and add the options to Share and Download next to the existing Delete button.

                        These options should be available when the cloud documents are accessed online as well.

                        • After Effects Integration: Groups should be imported as compositions

                          When exporting to After effects the xd pages are split into layers in After Effects but the grouping seems to be lossed. This has meant that it is difficult to find the correct layers and groups. It would be ideal if groups in XD were changed into compositions in after effects with the layers for each group held within.

                          • AdobeXD and Maze.Design Integration

                            Maze.Design is an extraordinary user testing tool that is personally my go to tool for usability testing.

                            Maze is amazingly simple and intuitive to import designs and create a user test, and track a users session, it provides details such as heat-maps, screen time, device details etc.

                            It currently has integrations with InVision, Sketch and Marvel. It would be AMAZING to get AdobeXD in on that list.

                                  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.

                                  • Design Systems: Documentation syncs between design system and projects.

                                    • show Adobe XD button in Jira Cloud story

                                      In Jira Cloud, we can see the Adobe XD button in the cards, under the "..." button.
                                      We would like to see it directly there, avoiding the need to click this button to see it. See image.
                                      Thanks,

                                        • JIRA: Preview of an artboard for artboard link, not of main artboard

                                          Same problem for integrations in Slack and Jira integrations' previews

                                          If I am adding or sharing Adobe XD link of a concrete artboard in some project, e.g.:
                                          https://xd.adobe.com/view/PROJECTID/screen/ARTBOARDID/
                                          then preview usually is generated not for this concrete artboard that i am sharing, but for the main artboard of the whole project

                                          So in fact it generates for me this link preview:
                                          https://xd.adobe.com/view/PROJECTID/

                                          This is completely illogical, when e.g. in Jira I create a task to implement concrete subpage, but then Adobe XD generates me every time the main page preview...
