  1. Interactive form elements

    Ability to create interactive relationships, like radio inputs, if you select one it deselects the other. Selecting different options can change the outcome when the user hits 'Submit' etc

  2. View and share design prototypes at actual size

    The full-screen feature is nice but I need to be able to show clients what my designs will look like at actual size on the web. The prototypes need to be displayed at the size they are designed at. This is the one feature that would justify me switching from using InVision for my prototyping.

  3. Export interactive PDF with clickable "PageTo" links

    Please add the option to export all artboards of the prototype as a PDF document of many pages, preserving prototype interactivity saving links as PDF internal "pageTo" links (or invisible linkTo rectangles).
    So that in this way the prototype can be navigated in the PDF file like on a web page (transitions excluded of course).
    This would allow a very efficient "deliverable" design document for the client.

  4. Interactive Prototyping for User Testing

    I use JustInMind to prototype Web and Mobile apps that I then user-test. The JIM application is less than optimal, but to attract a broader Human Factors / Usability / Design audience you're going to need a lot more than "scrolling."

    Interactive elements such as text fields, check boxes, drop-downs, etc. that can all be connected, responding to user inputs as needed, in a manner that replicates a real application in its native environment is what is needed.

    I look forward to that day, as your design tools and simple, visual linking paradigm are certainly winners.

  5. Use CSS properties / classes to specify object appearance

    Add unique CSS properties to object properties.
    Things like Margins, Padding and un-even borders are not common for design apps, but it would be great to define them per object in XD, honor them in the design mode, and export them as part of the object css,

  6. HeatMaps / Analytics (User Testing results) recorded from shared prototype online

    It would be great to generate Heat Maps & Analytics of what users are trying to click on...completion rates, etc.

    Maybe a "click counter" or "timer" to see how long it takes for users to accomplish a goal.

    Maybe put this info under the "Manage Links" section.

  7. Logic in prototyping - conditional behavior, branching, if/then

    To be able to prototype for usability testing and demonstrations there needs to be a bit more intelligence around how experiences are joined up togehter.

    If clause example:
    If user makes choice a, do x. If user makes choice b, do z. And so on.

    Variables:
    When user makes a choice/clicks/fills in a field etc. assign a variable. Then allow designer to use variables in an if-clause to make decision which roots to go down.

    Thank you :)

  8. Add your own custom UI Kits

    The ability to add your own UI Kits to the start screen

    It's great having iOs etc on there but for professionals working on lots of projects (web based) for big brands there is definitely a need to have custom UI Kits for each brand. This will speed up projects massively as well as maintaining consistency across all projects. Thats essential when you are working to strict brand guidelines.

    Make it happen Adobe ;)

  9. Set Default Style for Text Tool

    Description:
    Once I select a font in TEXT panel I want this font to be default font every time I use the Text tool. Until I change it again.

    Why is this valuable to you:
    Now you have to change font every time when you use Text tool — bad usability. Slows down the workflow.

    Additional request 1:
    Also, it would be nice to set a base font size for the project. So that every time I use Text tool I'm suggested this exact size.


    Additional request 2:
    Possibility to set up default global font sizes for <p>, <h1>, <h2>,…

    Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.

  10. Tabbed design view for multiple files

    Similar to Photoshop or Illustrator (See attached file), it would be valuable to allow for multiple files to be opened and arranged in the design pane using tabs. This would give users a quick way to switch between their projects and will provide a much better workflow in general.

    This is a must for me!

  11. Customer Journey map

    Since it's an UX design app, why not add a customer journey map tab? UX designers could start from it, designing the user experience, defining channels, touchpoints, personas, actions and feelings... and then going deeper into visual designs and prorotypes.

  12. iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support

    I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.

    A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

  13. Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour

    Most of modern apps have some custom behaviour - for example

    In user profile, you see big profile picture, but when you scroll down to see user posts - picture gets smaller and moves to the corner.

    Would be cool to be able to treat scroll position as kind of keyframes timeline, where you can modify styles of some elements and tween them depending on how much some view is scrolled.

    Some tools have kind of similar option - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRHuAq4PqQo - check first 30 secs.

  14. Activity stream in shared files

    I'd like to see an overview of all the activities and comments on all of the pages within a document that is shared. Otherwise there's quite a good possibility of missing some.

    Something like Invision has would be great:

    Thank you for your feedback. We are looking into the possibility of something like this. If you’d be willing to chat more about what your needs are around this activity stream, please ping me at tan@adobe.com

  15. Dynamic link with other CC file formats - edit in Photoshop/Illustrator auto-updates in XD

    It would be great to simply import psd files into XD through either 'file // import PSD', or, in photoshop, 'file // export to XD', without having to rework the files.

    An example for this would be a user that is designing an app in photoshop and has around 15 artboards. It would be great if the user could simply import each artboard into XD to create a wireframe to show a client / colleague, whilst also continue to make amends to the artboards in photoshop.

    This could involve having some kind of Dynamic link between Photoshop and XD, so…

  16. Change default fill and stroke settings (color, etc.) used when drawing new shapes

    It's quite frustrating that every time I use the shape tools, I have to remove the stroke and change the fill.
    Like in ID and AI, it would be useful if the object fill and stroke remembers the previous settings, or a default could be somehow set.

  17. Integrate with Adobe Comp CC

    Allow adobe comp app the capability to export to experience design. Also allow users to select a new project or add to an existing one. This would allow users to create on the go.

  18. Drop shadow binds to border

    When adding a drop shadow to an object it binds to the border.

    This means that if an object does not have a border or a fill (in the instance where you would want to create a glass like effect it is not possible)

    We have tested and verified that this is counter to how the browsers behave - this is the test example we used:

  19. Export to Muse CC

    It would be so useful to layout your designs in XD and then to export them straight to muse in the .muse format to refine or to be able to open an XD widget in Muse to prototype your iPhone layout, for example.

  20. Hide all panels

    Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.

    Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!

    I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.
