  1. Support the ability to enter a x, y, width or height in physical units (mm,cm,inches,pts...)

    Support the ability to enter a x, y, width or height in physical units (mm,cm,inches,pts...)

    The ability to create shapes that are physically sized. For example, creating a square 1"x1", when view on an iPad, it is 1" x 1". Also it would be nice to see those physical measurements.

  2. Intersection is misaligned

    When using Intersection in 0.6.20.7 Beta, the resulting object is misaligned from the two shapes position. See GIF below:

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting in touch. This is currently the expected behavior, though we are hoping to improve it in the future. When you create a boolean group including an image, the image then becomes a fill for the resulting path. The image will be scaled to cover the path, similar to the css background-property value “cover”.

    If you want the image to stay in place, I would suggest using a Mask instead, which will keep the relative size / position of the image intact.

    You might be interested in checking out two topics over in the feature request forum:

    More flexibility when using images as a fill:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17197367-drag-image-into-bounding-box

    Automatically resizing an image to fit a mask group:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13125480-fit-content-proportionally

    I hope that answers your questions,
    -Bear

  3. Single shortcut to display Preview in full screen

    As a user in prototype mode, to open the Desktop Preview in full screen requires two command-key strokes: 1) Command-Return, then 2) Command-Control-F.

    I would prefer to have a single command keystroke to go straight to Full Screen mode. For example: Command-Control-Return.

  4. Go to Current Artboard while in Preview Mode

    When in Preview mode, the ability to quickly go to content currently displayed in the Preview window would be greatly beneficial.

    Let's say you're in Preview Mode. Clicking through the screens, you noticed that there is something that needs to be fixed within one of the artboards.

    To make the fix, you have to currently close the Preview window, then navigate to the relevant artboard and make the change. For complex documents, this may require a good deal of hunting.

    It would make an easier workflow to have an option to go to the current artboard in the preview window…

  5. A/B Testing option

    It is often necessary to publish several versions of the same design for user testing sessions. The idea would be to define artboards basically dynamic in the workflow to export the number of versions (A / B) of the prototype.

  6. Responsive preview: automatically display artboard of correct size

    Would be great to see a Prototype Preview of the responsive design, how the layout changes, when the window is scaled. If there are different artboards created for the devices, it's great to see how it switches dynamically.

  8. Repeat Grid: Adjust padding independently

    After creating a repeat grid, it'll be nice if we can change individual spaces and formatting using a hot-key.

    For example: If I hold down the Option key and drag on the 3rd gap it should change that gap independently. Then if you resize the gaps normally, the custom gap will stay put.

    (override padding gutter)

  10. Automatically adjust artboard height when adding new content to the bottom of the artboard

    When designing web layouts I always need to adjust viewport height manually. It would be nice to have an option to make artboards auto adjustible.

  11. 3D transforms like Illustrator

    to be able to shear, 3D rotate etc would be useful. This would reflect css 3D transforms.
    Example use would be creating isometric mockups.

  12. JSON Import/Syncing

    Similar to being able to populate repeat grids with drag/drop, allow them to be populated by JSON data. See: https://www.designernews.co/stories/51165-designing-with-data-sketch--json

  13. Desktop Preview: Change Default Background Color

    The default background color should be a mid-tone gray and not black. It is against a midtone gray that color can be most accurately assessed. Of course the preferences should remain that one can change it but default black makes little sense for a designer or artist for whom color needs to be accurate.

  14. Adobe XD Wireframing tool as InDesign Rectangle Frame Tool

    Adobe XD has the rectangle tool, but the rectangle is an element which is a shape itself, destined to be used as a design element.

    The feature suggestion is to have a rectangle frame tool, which it's main function is to serve as a wireframing tool, rather tha a design element. The addition is to upgrade the rectangle tool for supporting converting to text.

    The wireframing tool should be able to be easily converted to other elements, like a rectangle, image frame or text box:
    a) If you set colors, you convert to a rectangle design element (as it currently…

  15. Custom / Multiple Nudge Distances

    Being able to create custom nudge distance (mapped to a hotkey + direction key) in addition to the standard nudge would be very useful.

    Use Case: The site uses 30px multiples for spacing. We set the custom nudge distance to 30px, create a new element and nudge it down once for 30px or twice for 60px for fast uniform spacing. This also works well for measuring out distances; create a 30px tall rectangle and select the bottom edge with the direct selection tool (another feature we need), now nudge it down 3 times for a 4x height. Or change a…

  16. Export Xaml code for building Universal Windows Platform Applications (UWP)

    Help us quickly get from concept to working prototype for our Windows 10/HoloLens/WinPhone/Xbox apps by streamlining created content from XD to XAML.

    Add support for exporting (or copying to clipboard) XAML. Make it intelligent enough to convert things like repeat grids to GridViews.

  17. Show full artboard name on hover

    Currently, to view the full artboard name if it's masked with an ellipsis, double clicking to change the name of the artboard is required to see the name in full.

    Please just let us see the full artboard name if we hover over the unmasked portion of the artboard name

    Artboard naming is critical when building prototypes and assigning interactions. Need to be able to quickly see the unmasked artboard name so we know we're working on the right one.

  18. Create hotkeys/shortcuts to jump to specific artboard in Prototype / Preview navigation (custom keyboard interactions)

    When in Prototype Mode, I need a way to quickly move between multiple screens.

    A set of keystrokes that I assigned as short cuts to go to a screen:
    - CTRL + 1 = Home Page
    - CTRL + 2 = Sign Up
    etc

    This same model can then be used to jump between screens in the Preview mode.

  19. Detach / float properties panel to allow for multiple display use

    It would be great to have the ability to 'detach' / 'tear off' the properties panel from Xd to accommodate use on multiple displays. (Like Ps panels)

    This would give us more room to work and use all panels etc. on a second screen or even allow for floating panels.

  20. Organizing artboards using a window or palette

    The ability is lacking to organise your artboards into some kind of chronological order – specifically when exporting all as a single file pdf for proofing. Can we please have a palette of some kind (maybe that is visible from the Window drop-down (as in Illustrator) or a link near the new layers and symbols icons at the bottom of the tools left-hand menu?
