  1. Move the lock/hide buttons

    I am always annoyingly clicking on the lock and show/hide buttons when working with the layers palette! I only work on my laptop, so real estate matters. I keep the layers palette narrow (the default setting), so when looking in a 4-deep nested group in a symbol, I hardly see the text description. And since those buttons don't appear until you hover over an object, I'm always accidentally locking my objects without actually selecting them as I intended.

    Please consider moving them or floating them off the panel, perhaps only in a narrow view. Or letting me lock/hide them by…

  2. Add app shortcuts and recent files to Windows jumplist

    I would love for XD to support in the next update a jumplist, for us to easily access of recent files, pinned files on the jumplist, UI kits and some few app shortcuts for easy access/launch on them, both if we pin XD to our Windows taskbar, and to it's tile

    Here's the concept I made. I put some time into it. I hope you see this and consider this. I'm very certain the jump list support is just a small work to implement, I know it. Please do it on next update, most CC apps already have this. i…

  3. Use Import... to populate images into a repeat grid

    I really like the populate behavior that drag and drop has when used in a repeat grid.

    With that said, and this just maybe how I work, but I feel like it would more efficient to not have to leave the program and just use the shortcut for File > Import... select the files I want, press enter and it populate a repeat grid as if I had dragged and dropped those files from the Finder.

    Granted some may not want that behavior, and I may not want that every time; a possible solution could be to have "import options"…

  5. Make symbol from multiple existing copies of the same elements

    It would be helpful if we could make a new symbol from multiples of the same object - for instance, you've got a button or icon that is exactly the same, but you've got 10 of them in use already. It would be great if you could 'symbol-ize' one of them and have it work on all instances.

  6. Add LDPI and TVDPI to asset export tool

    Although you cover the most common Android densities, sometimes you need to cover these resolutions for certain devices, for compatibility and testing purposes. It would be great if you would add a 0,75x (LDPI) and 1,33x (TVDPI) to your android asset export options.

    Photoshop and Sketch have a similar tool in which it lets you manually set your export sizes.

  7. Remove automatic highlighting from "HEX" box in color picker after a color is chosen from saved swatches

    Right now, when you open up the color picker, the "HEX" box is highlighted. I get it, it's so you can manually type a value or copy the existing value easily.

    However, once you have selected a new color from a saved swatch, I think the automatic highlighting of the hex should be removed. That way, you could close the color menu by pressing "V" and returning to the regular "move" tool. Right now, I constantly type "V" to try and close the picker, but I end up typing "V"s in the hex box instead.

    Honestly, if there was an…

  8. Horizontal-only-scale drag handle on short elements like text fields

    This small but frustrating issue has been such a common recurring problem for me. See attached. I know if I made the field much taller, the horizonal drag/scale handle would appear, but text fields are always short, I'm always tweaking the length, and it seems like there's room to fit the handle. Why not have it?

    I would like the ability to drag between different XD files without having to copy and paste.

  10. [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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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"

  18. 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).

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
