  1. Create incrementing text in repeat grid

    How about when having text in a Repeat Grid being able to add an integer like:


    • Some text #{i}

    which would render as:


    • Some text 1

    • Some text 2

    • Some text 3

    • Some text 4
      …etc…

    ?
    That would be cool!

  3. Change default fill and stroke settings (color, etc.) used when drawing new shapes

    It's quite frustrating that every time I use the shape tools, I have to remove the stroke and change the fill.
    Like in ID and AI, it would be useful if the object fill and stroke remembers the previous settings, or a default could be somehow set.

  4. Auto layout for different screen sizes

    Subform allows a designer to design on 1 art and it will translate to ALL sizes without having to manually resize for every viewport.

    That is dope! You guys need to get on that.

  6. "Unlock artboard content" for current Artboard

    To unlock objects, I need to manually select every locked object to Unlock it. This is time consuming and obnoxious. Indesign, Illustrator, Sketchup and others use Unlock All to Unlock every object, saving loads of time.

    I think where Illustrator's model could be improved upon is to make "Unlock all" artboard specific so that you're not unlocking every object on every artboard which is generally bad for productivity. In Illustrator I find myself continually needing to group everything on the board before I do "Unlock All" and either hide it or drill down into it so I don't accidentally unlock…

  7. Hide all panels

    Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
    (like F in Photoshop)

    feature-under-review  ·  MrTalin responded

    Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!

    I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.

  8. File Preview and Prototype directly in Creative Cloud Web Interface

    Currently the View of a XD file in the Webinterface inside Creative Cloud is pretty bare.

    It would be great, to add a rich preview of the file like the on Photoshop or Illustrator Files. This could be split up into different sections like full file Preview, the Prototype view and a view for Developers to extract measures and assets.

    This way you automatically get access control to the prototype.

  9. Copy rich text from websites

    When you copy text from a website, mimic the CSS too

    When designing changes to existing websites, it would be amazing to be able to copy/paste text in and have it be the same size/colour as it was on the site.

    I realise this might need a browser extension or something, but if you go down that route then actually being able to copy all kinds of elements from an existing website would be game changing.

    An alternative to the extension on a live website route, would be saving a website and opening it in XD in an "import mode"…

  10. Snap to objects inside groups from outside (Smart Guides align to all objects regardless of group nesting)

    When objects are in a group smart guides do not show up for those objects, only the group. It makes it hard to keep an artboard organized, no objects you want to align other objects to can be in groups.

  12. Integrate with Adobe Comp CC

    Allow adobe comp app the capability to export to experience design. Also allow users to select a new project or add to an existing one. This would allow users to create on the go.

  13. Text placeholder (not lorem ipsum) to focus on layout

    Would be great to have not only Lorem Ipsum, but rather the "simulation" of text when you create title or text blocks.

    The idea is to create wireframes without concerning at all in the first instance on font selection, etc. The focus is layout layout layout. After a second instance, this should be able to be converted to Lorem Ipsum to apply typography.

    See image attached for the "simulation" reference.

  14. Set background color on groups

    I always have to put a rectangle of color in a group to defines its color, but the group itself is the right size. Why can't I just give it a color?

    This is partially related to this idea:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/15957478-relative-positioning-within-a-group

    If I could give it a color and relative positioning, you would match the Figma constraints feature.

  15. Line height: should function as it does on the web

    On the web, i often use line height to determin the height of the types container. Therefore the text should sit vertically centrally to its line height. This is different to how line height works in print.
    I also use line height for vertical rhythm. see more info on this here:
    http://typecast.com/blog/4-simple-steps-to-vertical-rhythm

    vertical rhythm is a huge factor when I design for web

  16. Move focus to last viewed artboard when closing the Preview window

    Exit preview = go to artboard exited from

    When closing the preview window, it´s 99% of the times, because I found something that I want to change. When closing preview it would be great to be taken to the art board from where I closed the preview window.

  17. Ability to apply object blur on a group

    Would be nice to select a group (or several) and be able to assign object-blur to all objects within, rather than having to select individual objects first. probably also applies to other common properties.

  18. Support Android Vectordrawable

    My group works on the vector formats used by Android (VectorDrawable for static images and Animated Vector Drawable for animated vector graphics).
    I wondered if it would be interesting to Adobe for your design tools (such as XD) to produce these assets directly, to make it easier for Android developers to work with these resources in Adobe's tools.

  19. Drop shadow binds to border

    When adding a drop shadow to an object it binds to the border.

    This means that if an object does not have a border or a fill (in the instance where you would want to create a glass like effect it is not possible)

    We have tested and verified that this is counter to how the browsers behave - this is the test example we used:
