  1. Time trigger for scroll animation

    Auto-page scroll is often needed feature to trigger on artboard/page-load. Currently I can mimic this effect by making 2 artboards, moving a group up (or down) on the scroll position and use auto-animate artboard-to-artboard.
    Example:
    https://xd.adobe.com/view/9182ed42-11c0-45ff-a10f-e343424fbd97-c4d1/

    Here on the second board, user should be able to scroll back up the content group (which mimicked auto-scroll down using auto-animate) yet, XD does not support scrolling content positioned above an artboard. Ideal XD-feature should allow to set an auto-scroll for layers (perhaps to a certain Y-position) and let user to scroll back while displaying a scroll-bar.

  2. Shared cloud document folder

    I was happy to see folders for cloud documents be released. However, my co-worker(s) and I were disappointed to see that when organizing or creating a folder structure, it does not reflect to other XD users. Essentially, it only occurs under your own Creative Cloud account.

    REQUEST: I would like to make a folder structure with my own and/or XD documents that were shared with me to be synced up for specified users to see on their ends as well. (Similarly to Dropbox or Google Drive folders where other users can access them)

  3. Drag in multiple directions

    Would love to drag an object both directions. Perhaps if we could add hot spots to the left and right of a container, then you can either drag it left or right.

    Example: in g-mail, drag the message right to delete, left to archive. Would like to render this behavior.

    Thought two, add these touch points or hot spots to and image so I can drag left or right from the image itself to go forwards or backwards.

  4. 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.

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. Choose if changes to default state rollout to other states

    When working with components, I sometimes have to make changes to the default state that I don't necessarily need in the other states, it would be nice to have the ability to choose if those changes roll out to the other states or not.

  8. Allow components event to change states of other components

    New states feature is excellent but restricted for self components interaction. In many cases, especially in web and desktop apps, there are cases where a component event should affect another element on screen.
    It would be a super powerful option to allow a component event to change states of another component.
    Currently if i use component A inside component B, i can't use A to change state of B, even though A is part of B.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Scrollable action to another artboard anchor

    I'm hoping this idea is just an add on from the current Scroll action.

    At the moment you can create a button etc and link it to a certain area on your artboard. It then automatically scrolls to that area once clicked.

    My idea is to have this same feature, but with an option to jump and scroll to a specific area on another artboard.

    It will make the user journey so much better when using things like quick links etc

  12. 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.

  13. Allow Downloading Assets inside Component States.

    Why assets inside components aren't available to download?

    We need all assets inside any state of a component to be available to be downloaded.

    Right now: Assets inside component states are not available to download, only assets inside the default state are available.

  15. 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.

  16. Share button on artboard in design mode is too easy to hit

    The Share button that appears at the top of the selected artboard is super annoying. I have clicked on it 100 times accidentally when I want to rename or move an artboard :( And it directly generates a new link! Horror. If you wan to keep this function - please move it somewhere else. Prototyping mode or actually the Share mode fit this button better.

  17. Allow nested components to trigger parent component states

    Currently, a nested components cannot trigger a component state. You would have to ungroup it, so that it is no longer a component in order to be able to target a component state.

    eg. I have a card component which has multiple states. Inside the default state, I have a button (which is a component). When I select to Tap that button component, I do not have the option to target the other states of that component. It only displays artboards as potential targets.

  19. Change owner of cloud document

    A member of our team is leaving. The only way we can change ownership of her files is to have her download them and share them locally. This is fine and all but it breaks all the links to the document so I have to go into the various places we share the link, like JIRA, and add new links.

    I would prefer that we could just change ownership of the file to another team member.

  20. 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.
