  1. Moodboard (split window which can appear and disappear)

    While designing I have a lot of stuff I look at in my finder as inspiration. How about getting a feature by which I can just tap a button to view a window which presents me with all the different things I collected together for inspiration.

  2. Speed up zoom in/out animation when zooming with keyboard shortcuts

    You can delete/reject this if it's mentioned elsewhere.

    When using the keyboard (Cmd+ or cmd-) and when using Cmd+opt+mouseclick to zoom out, I feel that I'm wrestling XD regarding the zoom speed.

    This for me feels like a stark difference from when I use the macbook's trackpad, It's fast and buttery smooth.

    I believe the new version of Illustrator released in November had some changes to address this issue. Could you please try again and let us know if this issue is fixed?

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

    11月にリリースされたIllustratorの新しいバージョンでは、この問題に対処するためにいくつかの変更が加えられたと思います。 この問題が修正された場合はもう一度お試しください。

  4. Share Online needs to be able to work through corporate proxies/firewall

    The Share Online features need to be able to navigate a corporate firewall or proxy that requires user authentication.

  5. Draw swimming lanes on the canvas

    Would it be possible to create 'swimming lanes' in order to visualize on which level a certain part of the flow/design operates? I've added a simple visualisation of it, just to illustrate the idea.

  6. Include fold line (scroll viewport boundary) in exported images

    Nice to see where your screen ends in the exported images as well as just within the application? This may work especially well in mobile/responsive designs.

  7. Pen tool: snap curve control/tangent points to grid

    I use the handles snapping to grid functionality extensively when creating icons and other detail-intensive shapes. This is critical to my workflow.


    Note from Adobe: curve anchor points (the points the curve pass through) should snap to the grid already. This request is about the curve control points (the two handles on either side of each anchor point, with the tangent line connecting them) snapping to the grid; this does not cause any visible part of the path to align to the grid better, it just helps keep the control points organized and makes it easier to match curves identically…

  8. Remember prototype interactions (mouse clicks) so re-recordings are easily repeatable automatically

    I think it would be handy if you could set triggers in prototype to record pre defined motion paths for the video e.g: A (Home) to B (Next page) back to A.

  10. Tutorial / video demo of a developer using XD exports to make app/website

    We have designed an app in XD. However the dev teams are resistant to accepting the shift from Photoshop to XD. We may have now redesign everything in Photoshop and revert to pixate for prototyping.

    Can you provide a detailed video that we can show the dev that shows how exactly they can use export files from XD to code. Please stress on XD exports make their lives easier.

    Instead of just defining the export feature, can you explain on what are the practical applications of the different types of exporting? As in - "Now that we've got all our…

  11. Drag and Drop a text file with break lines using "\n"

    I have a suggestion about drag and drop a text. How we can put a text with a break lines? I just tried put a file.txt with a string "\n" to try break line. Did you think about it? In case, I have just one field and I will drag and drop a text. Is that clear?

  12. Export confirmation message when done, option to open folder

    When exporting one or more artboards, there is a message shown at the top indicating the process. (with an X to cancel it)

    After it's done, however, there is no confirmation of the success (other than the absence of an error message), and there is no way to quickly open the containing folder for the export result.

    It would be really useful and handy to get a confirmation message along the lines of "(#) Artboards Exported successfully. [Open folder]" at the top afterwards — especially because XD doesn't use the native Mac windowing system, thus we don't have access to easily…

  13. Resizable font family list

    Description: The font family list under TEXT should be resizable, or at the very least dynamically sized to expand to fit larger available screen size.

    Value: A larger list would significantly reduce selection time spent using this control. The constrained size of the list is very limiting, only showing 16 choices at a time.

  15. Different pasteboard color in prototyping tab

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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)

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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?
