  1. Apple Watch Preview App

    Apple watch Adobe XD app (that runs on Apple watch watch).
    Wouldn't require many additional features compared to its iPhone counterpart.


    • Support for 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch sized artboards within Adobe XD (desktop)

    • Support for linked objects/hotspots within the watch previewer app

    • Transition effects visible within the watch previewer app

    • Close prototype by using force touch within the watch previewer app

    • Support for fixed headers

  2. Reorder layers in Mask via Layers panel

    At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

  3. Repeat Grid: different icons / SVG images in each grid cell

    Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
    My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.

    It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).

    Thank you.

  4. Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

    I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

  5. Add Interactive Native Widgets/Controls to Prototypes

    Support for native device functions (e.g. Cordova).

    Example dropdown selection, media players, maps, etc.

    This would increase the demo's effectiveness and allow for a more real-world prototype.

  6. Multiple sharing links for different subsets of same file

    I´m designing for several screens at once and would like to be able to create separate links for the different screens. Eg one for desktop, one for tablet and one for phone. So that I easily can work on all the screens at once and don't have to change files.

    As a workaround for this featire you can make your home artboard an “index” page which links to the different views/subsets of your design. When you share your design and visit the URL you can click through to the real home artboards and copy the URL (each artboard has it’s own URL on the shared link). You can then share these URLs to link people to a subset of your design.

    We hope to be able to formalize this feature in the future.

  7. Save all prototypes locally on device

    Actually, the app stores just the last prototype. Please keep all prototypes on device, in a simple list, always available and organizable.

    Thanks for your feedback. We definitely have this feature in the roadmap. Soon, you’ll be able to manage XD documents stored in CC Files from mobile (search, list, delete) & toggle to save specific projects for offline viewing.

  8. Color shift in shared prototype

    I am about to use it for design prototype for work. As I tested it, I found out the colour between design view and share online result have different colours.
    Please check the attached files. I tested with my own file and the examples from adobe.

  9. Dynamic scrolling viewport height based on screen size

    Currently, for scrolling artboards there is a fixed-position dotted line that defines the height of the viewport in the interactive preview.

    For desktop web sized artboards, I'd like the position of the dotted line to automatically adjust dynamically so the prototype fills the full height of the user's screen. For example, on a laptop screen the scrollable viewport might be 960px tall and when the same prototype is viewed on a desktop monitor the viewport might be 1200px tall.

  10. Display artboard titles on the shared web prototype

    For better flow and clarity for the clients, to have artboards names visible at the top of every screen in the public views.

  11. Hotspot hints in Preview

    When viewing my prototype using Preview, I would like to see the same hotspot hints that my team members will see when they view my prototype on the web.

  12. Locate & Open Prototypes in Creative Cloud Mobile App

    Actually, it would be nice to have access to all the prototypes through the CC mobile app.

    Now, when I'm on smartphone you have to go to the assets.adobe.com and find them there. But assets.adobe.com is not user friendly on mobile.

    In the future, you’ll be able to access your Web Prototypes published from Adobe XD on desktop, from your mobile app.

    But today, if you need to access XD documents (with just designs or with prototypes) from your device. If you place your XD documents in your CC Files folder on desktop, you can now load them from Adobe XD on mobile. Make sure you have your document saved and synced in your CC Files folder on desktop, then open Adobe XD on your mobile device. Tap on the folder icon and choose “XD Document from Creative Cloud”, or if you’re viewing an XD document, long press and tap on “Open XD Document > XD Document from Creative Cloud”. What’s interesting here is that we have a full version of Adobe XD running on the mobile device to open each XD document.

  13. Locked objects should be completely disabled

    At the moment a locked object can still be selected, hindering the ability to select an object underneath.

    It would be great if locked object would be completely disabled, similar to how an illustrator locked object behaves.

  14. Defined border/stroke (or shadow) around the edge of a mask

    I am not sure if you already have a request for this, however, it would be nice if we could add a border on the outside of a masked circle or square.

  16. Intersection is misaligned

    When using Intersection in 0.6.20.7 Beta, the resulting object is misaligned from the two shapes position. See GIF below:

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting in touch. This is currently the expected behavior, though we are hoping to improve it in the future. When you create a boolean group including an image, the image then becomes a fill for the resulting path. The image will be scaled to cover the path, similar to the css background-property value “cover”.

    If you want the image to stay in place, I would suggest using a Mask instead, which will keep the relative size / position of the image intact.

    You might be interested in checking out two topics over in the feature request forum:

    More flexibility when using images as a fill:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17197367-drag-image-into-bounding-box

    Automatically resizing an image to fit a mask group:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13125480-fit-content-proportionally

    I hope that answers your questions,
    -Bear

    Hi Kieran,

    Thanks for your feedback! This feature is already in our backlog – not sure when it will arrive, but we’re aware of the need for it.

    Regards,
    Joe

  18. Ability to define wire color

    Being able to select the color for the connectors not only makes it easier for me to understand the interactions better at a glance but when I share the wireframes with developers it gives more clarity to the progression of interactions.

  19. Some SVG gradients are missing

    SVG gradients are not rendered correctly when importing this image in AdobeXD.
    See the reference file with embedded bitmaps to see how it is rendered compared to how it should be rendered.

  20. Repeat grid - move next row down when adding content makes items bigger

    I don't know it's considered as a bug or if it's beaucause it's not final yet.


    1. 0.5.0.4 Beta


    2. Having a repeat grid with content in it already. Trying to add new element within the groups of the grid (which because of the logic of no layers, adds the object in each duplicate). Finally, move the whole group (normally considered as the reference object for the grid) to adjust the spacing in height of the content.


    3. I was hoping when I drag the repeat grid handle down, the following content would take in account the respacing.


    4. It does not.


    5. Video attached.

    Hi Winnie,

    Thank you for your feedback! We already have a feature in the backlog for adjusting the cell size based on the content and that will solve the issue you describe. Currently the size of the repeat grid cells is fixed and only their padding adjustable.

    Kind regards,
    Florin
