  1. Share prototypes by mail, server or Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, etc

    We like to share our design with others so that they can interact with it, they can install Adobe XD Mirror on their device and we can send them the file with .xd extension. (like principle in "Sharing an interactive design": http://principleformac.com/docs.html#faq)

  2. 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.

  3. Recolor Artwork

    Saw Talin Wadsworth talked about the recolor feature and it looks like an amazing feature to have.

    Imagine instantly changing the color scheme of the UI just by choosing the colors from www.colors.adobe.com to show the client without manually changing the colors.

  4. Simplified view of artboard interaction links (overview of flow) in XD desktop app

    Reduce number of lines between linked artboards: (when an entire artboard is selected or you select all)

    when two artboards link to each other, instead of having two, three or four lines, have one line (with two or more arrows or another color) to show the two or more links.

    This makes it easier to get an overview of the entire applications dartboard links (app/site structure)

    Its the smallest things that makes a great and intuitive workflow

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Repeat last action\command

    Would be great if you could add this feature from Illustrator (Ctrl + D), it's a very handy thing even to have... wish i had it in Photoshop

  11. Export device-specific icons at different resolutions

    Please provide options for exporting app icon and splash automatically, in every size requested by iOS and Android (as actually XD does with general assets), avoiding a Photoshop action.
    Thank you very much.

    Updated:
    App icons need to be exported at different (specific) dimensions than the typical 1x, 2x, and 3x required by in-app assets. This request specifically reflects the needs for application icons.

  12. 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)

  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. 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…

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  18. Pinch gestures to zoom on mobile preview

    Currently when we demo the prototype on a mobile device browser, the ability to "pinch" zoom is disabled.
    Often we need to zoom some details of the UI to be sure they are positioned correctly (for apps), or to simulate the true usage scenario of the web application (many web apps allow pinch zoom because users of a certain age have difficulty reading small characters and want the option to zoom enabled).
    Please allow the "pinch" zoom gesture on the prototype demo as an option when exporting the interactive prototype.

  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. 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.
