  1. Full screen shared prototypes on desktop (fill entire browser tab/page)

    Ability to view full screen (within your browser) desktop sized prototypes.

    Gives you the ability to experience the prototype as if it were a live website.

    This feature is now available for shared prototypes. On the web, click the full screen icon at the top right of the page to see your shared prototype in a full screen mode.

  2. Constrain proportions (aspect ratio) when resizing numerically

    The ability to constrain the proportions of an element, but change the dimensions, say width, to an exact number value.

    You can constrain proportions for objects directly via a lock icon in the property inspector.

    Enjoy.

  3. Drag n drop images from a browser

    Is it me or does the app currently not support drag n drop from the web browser into app, for example an image into a art board or shape, I have to save it to the desktop top first then drag n drop it.

  4. Export Assets as PDF

    Add PDF to list of export options for Vector assets in addition to just SVG.

    PDF contain embedded sizing information (in points), allowing assets to be used directly in iOS with no manual rasterization necessary.

    This would allow an iOS/OSX developer to export vector assets just once, and import directly into XCAssets library immediately with no intermediate steps.

    Here's how this is accomplished with Illustrator today: http://martiancraft.com/blog/2014/09/vector-images-xcode6/

    Our July release will have options to export selected artboards or assets to a single PDF or multiple PDF files.

  5. Click and drag to import individual assets from Ps & Ai

    Just the ability to be able to click and drag a layer or object across in Xd would be class.

    In the latest version of Adobe XD it is now possible to drag & drop layers from Photoshop into XD to import them. (You can also copy-paste).

    You can copy-paste individual assets from Illustrator into Adobe XD, though you can’t drag & drop them.

    That seems like enough to call this feature completed now. Please let us know if I’ve misunderstood what you’re asking for, though.

  6. Drag Images from PSD or AI

    I would like to be able to drag Images from other apps. Currently I can copy and paste text and shapes, but images don't transfer. In order to get images to XD I have to drag an image file outside of photoshop or illustrator. I would like to drag them from the AI or PSD file as well.

    In the current version of Adobe XD, you should be able to copy and paste Photoshop layers complete with transparency into XD. You should also be able to copy-paste Illustrator selections that include raster images.

    If you find that’s not working for you and your copy of XD is fully up to date, please file a bug in UserVoice with specifics about the type of content you’re copy-pasting and what’s not working — if you can share a file with us that shows the problem, that’s even better.

    Thanks!

  7. Share Online vs. Create New Link

    Version of Adobe XD: 0.5.0.4

    I created a Project and shared online -> everything works fine.

    But if i want to creat another Version of this Project, i am not able to create a new, differnt "online-Link"???

    Made following Steps:


    1. Open current Project

    2. Save as another Project / different Filename / same content

    3. Now there is no new "create Link Button" just a "Update-Link" Button

    4. Both Files are leading to the same "Online-Link"

    Working on one Projekt and save it will always overwirte the other existing Presentation.

    The only way is to Copy Paste all Grafix into a complete New…

  8. Hotspot hinting in prototypes

    Would be nice to have the option to see where interactive hotspots are when viewing a prototype on the web.

    I do think the option to have them hidden is still important for user testing, but client demos would be aided by a hint as to what can be clicked on.

    This is now available. When you click on a portion of a shared protototype that is not clickable, you will get hotspot hints. In the future, we will offer the ability to turn off the hotspot hints. For now, they are on all the time.

  9. I want to be able to open a UI kit while I work on a design

    Currently the UI kits are accessible only from the "Welcome" screen.
    However, I'd like to be able to open a new design and open a UI kit (or sample file) at the same time.

  10. Paragraph text

    It would be great to have paragraph text similar to the paragraph mode of the text tool in Photoshop. I noticed when recently prototyping an app I tried to use lorem ipsum text and had to use hard returns to format as a paragraph

  11. Complex object fill colors (set fill on entire group at once)

    Option to fill entire imported asset with color on single click selection. Currently double clicking allows parts to be filled, but for a complex icon with multiple parts one has to select and color them individually. See attached example.

    Example. When one has imported a series of icons from Illustrator, selecting the the icon should present a color fill option to fill that entire icon with color.

  12. Hexadecimal colors in color picker (too hard to find)

    The ability to select colors by hex is paramount IMO. Most style guides use hex for web/mobile. Not to mention I have several hex colors memorized (self serving much... ;) )

  13. Spacebar + Cmd/Option to Zoom in/out like Photoshop

    It feels weird not having those shortcuts

  14. Copying / Pasting Text from Illustrator

    I tried copying and pasting a text box from illustrator to Adobe XD and two things happened.
    1 - The font weight changed and
    2 - Paragraphs were broken up into separate lines.

    When I pasted a whole wireframe page from illustrator, all my bold text turned into regular and I had to select each line one by one to change it back to bold.

    The other option was to outline the text before I copied / pasted it but then I couldn't edit it in Adobe XD.

    It would be great if the text copied from illustrator matched /…

  18. Translucency blur effect

    It would be very handy to be able to apply a translucency blur effect like the native IOS one.

  20. [shortcut] Easy artboard + object selection to quickly align objects to artboard


    1. Ability to click an object and the artboard (title or artboard border perhaps) so that a user can quickly align the object to the artboard itself. Most frequent use case is centering an object to the artboard.


    2. Sometimes faster and easier to do this than having to move the object until smart guides assist the user in placing the object in the right spot on the artboard.

    Now, you can select an element or a group, use the alignment tools via property inspector and the selected item will be aligned to the artboard (a single selection of one item or one group has to be​ made). Please let us know if it covers your needs described in this request. Thanks.
