  2. Visible preview of invisible object (no opacity or fill) when dragging / moving / resizing

    If an object's opacity is set to zero and you then 'alt-drag' it, there's no preview of the new object's edges, so you can't see what you're alt-dragging. Illustrator solved this by using the object's 'Outline mode' preview when alt-dragging.

    Resize/move feedback for invisible shapes definitely could be improved, and we are tracking that issue. As a workaround, you can toggle the fill or stroke on for a moment, adjust the shape, and then toggle it back off.

    If you’re using an invisible rectangle to define a hit area for Prototyping mode, you may also be interested in upvoting https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12931899-actual-hotspots, which would let you more easily define interaction hotspots that don’t match up exactly with the size & shape of any of your visible artwork.

  3. Different pasteboard color in prototyping tab

    Would be good to have a different color clipboard background to differentiate between design and prototype mode.

  4. Lock all objects underneath current selection

    An option for locking the objects underneath the selected object for locking could also be considered, which may help at certain instances.

    While 'Cmd+L' locks individual object, 'Cmd+Shift+L' can be assigned to lock all the objects underneath the selected objects too.

  5. Completion hints to help designers name objects/layers

    I know Layer Panel is on the way so I hope this idea will help.

    Naming Layer is still one of the worst nightmare. We forget to name layer and group all the time. We need good naming for organizing and exporting assets but with hundred of layers after the design done, we just cannot complete this task well.

    So I think you should make a new kind of naming process to encourage designers do it as an important part of their routine.

    My idea is a naming box appearing after we add an vector, bitmap or a shape. The…

  6. Change orientation of property inspector W/H/X/Y

    This is very hard to describe in words so please see the screenshot.

    Essentially, let's put WIDTH and HEIGHT side by side in the toolbar interface, and below that, place X and Y coordinates side by side.

    Further, please add the coordinate origin (that little thing that defines where on the object the X and Y coordinates are referencing. The absence of this is a major frustration for me in Sketch and Keynote. (perhaps a power feature, but standard in Adobe apps)

  7. Keep Preview window visible when switching away from XD

    When the user clicks out of the XD application, the previous window disappears. This becomes an issue when sharing a presentation file, each time you click outside (for example, when you have 2 screens with notes on feedback on the other screen). Is there any reason to ever hide that window? It should just stay up whether XD has focus or not.

  8. Save custom libraries of shapes/icons to drag and drop

    In photoshop, you can import .csh files that contain a myriad of UI icons and shapes, and then draw them in the same way as a rectangle or ellipse. This has been invaluable as i can simply choose the icon shape i wish to use, and then create it to the size i want. I understand that you can bring in vector objects from illustrator, but it would save time if a "custom shapes" option was added. Perhaps this would allow people to create a material design icon set, or an ios icon set that could be accessed on demand…

  9. Remove spaces from Artboard name when duplicating

    When drag-copying dartboards to create new ones, a 'space-hypehn-space-number' is added to the name. These spaces carry over to the exported files. Obviously this is not good practice as spaces should be used in files intended for web use. Are you planning on removing these in a future update?

  10. Installing / updating fonts requires restarting XD

  11. Ability to change the default preview segue when using keyboard arrows

    Looks like when previewing using the keyboard arrows, the segue used is Slide Left. It would be nice if it respected the segue setup in Prototype.

    If that is not possible, it would be nice to allow user to change the global segue to something else.

  12. Payload data based on current assets in a given design

    Weight is an important aspect of Web design

  13. Simple layer slider/scrubber to control Z order - like Adobe Comp

    Maybe something like Abobe Comp is enough. It is very simple and useful

  14. Change an interaction's start point

    I would like to be able to change an interaction's start point after I've already set it. In my scenario going from a low-fidelity to high-fidelity design, there were certain objects I wanted to swap in for existing hot spots.

  15. Add cursor feedback on hover when holding the Option key

    Holding Option to duplicate an element is missing the cursor feedback from PS / AI (the double arrow) when you are hovering over an element that can be duplicated.

  16. Predefined color books / libraries

    Would love access to color libraries like the Pantone color books as I do use these even in my UX Design and prototypes.


    (Original request: Just trying out the new Adobe Experience Design application and not to thrilled about the mac color picker. Would love to see the photoshop or illustrator color picker, color swatches and access to color libraries like the Pantone color books as I do use these even in my UX Design and prototypes.)

  17. Conditional Repeat Grid contents - different sets of items share different "templates"

    Allow me to have various layout types iterating within a repeating grid. This could be driven from an excel spreadsheet with true or false conditions or some way to indicate for this Data Set, pull Layout X. This would allow me to pull real data and then scrub the data to indicate which layout type to pull for representation. This would include pulling a different layout to accommodate extra data.

  18. Aligning different sized items

    I love the way we can add space between items of a repeat grid. I'd like to see this feature also for items with different sizes. For instance a navigation bar, where every item has a different width. There it would be very nice to be able to "drag" the space between the items to in- or decrease the gap/padding. See the picture attached!

  19. Scale repeat grid from center without moving items upward

    Could you add the possibility of scaling a repeat group without moving the child items from their position on the artboard?

    Holding down ALT scale from the center of the group but all the children move along with the top left corner which is annoying.

  20. When resizing (or editing text), automatically shift neighboring items to maintain same distance

    Hi. Thanks for the opportunity to try out Adobe XD!

    One thing that takes up a lot of my time designing is when I change the height of one object and have a lot of content beneath it. Then I have to select all that content beneath and move it regarding to the height change earlier. Well that I can live with. But...

    ... what about when you change the font size in one block. Then I would like that block to adjust the height according to the content. And I would like all the content beneath to automatically change…
