  1. [Windows] Add F5 hotkey support for desktop preview

    From Visual Studio to other known editors, it has been common feature that when pressing F5, the application will launch.

    Why not add same key (F5) support to Adobe XD as well, that when pressing that key, the desktop preview will launch.

  2. Trusted user testing group

    I would like to have a way to invite trusted people to user test my prototypes; in fact, I would like to entrust this to a group of verified AdobeXD users. Instead of always trying to hunt down ways to user test on another platform and then get participants. I would like to turn to a set of UXers and ask for feedback. This could relate getting Adobe Points for being a tester and for providing feedback.

  3. Indicate which artboard is currently active on mobile device in XD window

    When users have their mobile device tethered to their machine via USB and are viewing a prototype on that device, as the user traverses through screens it would be helpful to indicate on the computer on the XD canvas which dartboard is currently being shown on the mobile device.

    This would be to help track screen flow as you click through a complex prototype.

  4. Allow multi-selection of an object in a symbol and an object outside of a symbol

    I can't select those two objects (Attachment / Red dots). The reason I want to select them is because I want to align them.

  5. Do not change layers view on deselect

    I find it highly irritating that the Layer-Mode always collapses/closes the Artboard if you click outside of it.

    Some people are used to click outside the artboard to deselect.

  7. Automatically lock shape aspects if you create an shape holding shift

    This is a simple yet time saving feature. If you create a new shape holding down the shift-key the little "Lock Aspect" lock-icon should be locked.

    Because in most of the time Users create shapes with shift to resize the width and hight at the sam time.

  8. Create Symbol toolbar button for quick access

    It would be a great time saver to click on a layer and than on a "Create Symbol" button, instead of having to right-click or to switch to the "Symbol-mode"

  9. Export artboard (as PDF) with 'extra space' added to the artboard edge

    When exporting an Artboard (as PDF) I would like an option for the artboard to be exported with extra space added to the edges, such as 400 pixels or "Export to an A4 size page set up".

    Also, add Header (Name of Artboard) and Footer details (Designer name and date, etc).

  10. 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)

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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)

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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).
