    It’s been three months since we last asked a question about what type of XML you’re looking for, and what information you’re hoping will be in the XML. I’m closing this story, so please re-file the story with that information!

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  2. Integration or exportable to developer code

    Once the prototype is completed, allow the option to be integrated into the final solution or exported into the developers code, same as Visual Studios Blend.

    Some options would be nice to have would be python, C++, C#, HTML, etc..

    Thanks!

  3. Import of transparent PNG or psd layers.

    Import of transparent PNG or psd layers. Would be great to use these as imports or even linked assets.

    Also simple annimations such as slide in etc.

    You can already import PNG images with transparency (alpha channel) by dragging & dropping the PNG files onto your Adobe XD window, or by choosing File > Import. You can also bring individual Photoshop layers into XD by copying them in Photoshop and pasting in XD. Are you having trouble getting this to work? If so, please let us know the details.

    Linking to external objects is not yet possible — if you add an image to your XD project, it will always be embedded in your .xd file. If you’d like to be able to keep image assets separate (linked), please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109-linked-objects

    Simple slide-in animations are already possible — for details check out this tutorial: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/how-to/ui-prototyping.html. For more complex animations, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869229-animation-support-microinteractions

    I’m closing this feature request since it is a combination of things that should already be possible and things that have already been suggested…

  4. Depth design

    As in the design of materials Google, if you could play with the depth of the elements in the interface that is designing the final design be achieved much more consistent and scalable. Utilziar could also be a layer system, the best Photoshop style to keep adding layers and replace them quickly to try different concepts without having to create an entirely new view.

    As it’s been three months since we’ve requested more information (and we’ve released layers since then), marking this as action required. Please do file this issue again if you think we still need to do this.

    Thanks!

  5. Text Frame Options

    Options for align text vertically, apply color settings to frame such as fill, border and padding like InDesign text frames.

  6. Turn off resizing/rotation handles when zoomed out or object is very small

    When working wth any item, there is a scale/rotate/selection box around them. However, when zoomed out, and especially on small objects, you end up scaling/rotating, instead of selecting/moving the item.

    It would be nice to have the scale/rotate options automatically turn off, when you are "zoomed out X amount." That is, you are probably moving the item around the screen or looking at things, etc, and not trying to scale/rotate that object, especially the small objects.

  7. Using vertical rhythm

    I use vertical rhythm in all my UI design. for more info on what that is see http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/improving-layout-with-vertical-rhythm--webdesign-14070

    including some functionality to apply vertical rhythm would be great. This could be just guides, but would be great if there was something smarter.

    For example... i make sure all my padding, margins and line heights are a multiple of 28px to retain vertical rhythm in my designs.

  8. Wish list

    Love the new XD, some ideas below that have come to mind.


    • Export mock styleguides for Devs to follow (or not follow). Could be similar to InDesign packaging export


    • Built in colour contrast analyser


    • Screen reflowing like Edge Reflow, so the designs don’t adhere to device sizes.


    • More shape options


    • Smart fields auto complete for text etc


    • Paragraph styling like InDesign for fast text application (make this global across all art boards)


    • Link to a pattern library and Adobe Kular


    • Able to annotate and add notes to prototypes


    • XD can export good clean CSS/HTML


    Cheers

    We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

    Many of the ideas you’ve mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

    I’m closing this out…

  9. Dim background when preview window opens (presentation mode)

    It would be a neat feature to be able to dim the artboards in the background when viewing prototypes so as you focus on the preview window.

    This could be achieved by having a button next to the record button to toggle background on or off. The color of te icon changes to show it is selected.

    It would be especially good for when you are recording a video for example, so that your are not distracted by your artboards in the background.

  10. Mouse scrolling around canvas maybe too sensitive.

    When I scroll left,right,up and down it feels very sensitive and perhaps a little jerky when moving around the canvas.

  18. Please get rid of the pop up box which appears on Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign upon window close

    Please get rid of the pop up box which appears on Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign upon window close or at least give the user the option to get rid of it like you have done in previous versions. It is incredibly annoying that this pops up every time i close and working file and is just not needed.
