  1. Unwanted artifacts on PDF Exports

    Export options should be more robust. I also find unwanted borders on some elements (a tile design with shadow) when exported to a PDF.

    I’m separating out this feature to focus on PDF export issues, as we have many export option suggestions already in the system. I highly suggest you search for specific features you’re looking for in export.

    Thanks,

  2. Placing multiple images like in indesign

    It would be great if you could just drag multiple images into XD and place them one by one onto shapes (like in indesign)

  3. Maintain scale when dragging symbol from panel

    v 0.6.2.7

    -when placing a symbol, the scale is not always correct, so I drag and drop from the symbols menu/bar, and sometimes the scale is ~70%.

    So when I release, and "place" the symbol, it grows, and isn't placed correctly, requiring me to re-select, and then re-place the symbol. Not a huge problem, but feels like an inconsistent experience, buggy, and was probably just an oversight.

    Symbols should always come off the menu bar @ 100% scale, so I only have to select and place it once.

  4. Auto activate eyedropper when moving mouse outside the color picker box

    I would love it if the color palette automatically turns into a color picker if you move your mouse outside of the color box (like it does in photoshop). It's so much quicker and easier to select colors that way.

  5. Disable trackpad/magicmouse touch movement

    I just started using Adobe XD instead of other UX system and I like it a lot but there were hundreds of times when I almost broke my mouse because of this nasty, frustrating mouse gestures turned on. There should be no such thing as option to move the screen only by the touch gestures in SUCH precise app. No other Adobe app has this feature turned on and it's absolutely ok to move the screen only when holding the space bar (Hand). It's natural. By doing it your way (mouse/trackpad gestures) you can easily reposition the elements by few…

  6. Snap to 100% zoom when using trackpad pinch (or don't allow zoom past 100% at all with Cmd or Alt)

    I use a lot of zooming in/zooming out while working with XD, it will be cool if I can keep the button cmd or alt pressed and the zoom will block at 100%.

    So if I'm at 60% and pinch zoom with "alt" or "cmd" pressed, the max zoom will get to 100% and not over). Same thing when I'm on 200% (working on some details) and want to zoom out.

    Trackpad user will benefit from that, so easy to zoom in/out with a trackpad but sometimes I need 5 or 6 pinches to find the perfect 100%

    Thank you…

  7. Dragging and Dropping Outside Items into Repeat Grids Instead of Cutting and Pasting

    After creating a repeat grid, if you have elements outside the grid that you want to add to the grid, it cannot be simply dropped into the Repeat Grid 'Group". You have to cut it and double click into the grid to paste it in.

  9. Show measurements between objects when resize

    Show measurements when resize can be very useful when I resize a button. In this way, I can know the margin between button border and button text

  10. Built-in Type Scales

    I would love to see type scales (type-scale.com) built in to the forthcoming(?) Style Guide. A quick way to set a base size, and establish your heading sizes/line heights.

  11. Go back one screen in Preview using the delete key

    When viewing a preview of your design work in the current window could you make the delete key go back to the previous link please. (Just like a browser back button would do)

  12. Set grid to align bilaterally - align perfectly with all 4 artboard edges, with rounded / irregular grid cell size at the exact center

    The iPhone 6 has screen dimensions that aren't divisible by 8. As a result, placing a regular grid means that the last grid on the right and bottom and off.

    Given that UI designs are bilateral vertically, if you want to make the side margins 16pts and aligned with the grid, the left margin will be off the grid.

    To counter that you can make the center grid off by that 1pt, which normally doesn't affect the placement of objects as much.

    The same could be done for the horizontal grid, however since most apps aren't bilateral horizontally this is…

  13. Add 70% as an item of the zoom menu

    This might sound silly but I'm on a retina display and in order to see the work more or less in "actual size", I need to type "70%" every time. It would be great having these factors already on the menu for easy interaction.

  14. Content Options for Objects

    It would be great if we could assign a content type to an object (graphic, text, unassigned) and set the inset spacing you want applied as well like you can currently InDesign (see screenshots).

    It avoids the extra work to create an object and text field separately and group them. This also ensures that the text is always vertically and horizontally centered within your object (see button example in screenshot).

  15. Change the text size in the layers panel

    Pls add options like in photoshop for layers, small/mid/big. And change layer panel size horizontally.

    Now it so small text size.

  17. Show artboard interactions in design mode

    In prototype mode, you can SEE where the pages connect, but when you switch back to design mode those visualizations are hidden. I would like to be able to visualize the paths in both views, all the time.

  18. Add frame line on fullscreen view showing the limits of the screen when previewing a prototype locally

    When sharing a design with multiple sizes and a black background it becomes impossible to see the edges of the screen. Adding a 1px #555 line would be enough to improve the preview experience by allowing the user to see the edges of say a small mobile screen on fullscreen.

  19. Pressing enter to "move" object shortcut like Illustrator

    When an object is selected, pressing enter produces this shortcut where you enter the amount you want an object to move. Super excellent stuff, but sadly is missing from XD, would love to see this in XD

  20. Limit Repeat Grid option

    Provide an option to specify the maximum number of repeated elements so that if the screen is displayed on a slightly larger screen, part of an image will not show.
