  1. User Testing Features

    1) My company is adamantly against allowing us use any tool to show intellectual property on the web, so I second the ideas to be able to export to a PDF. In order to use it for wire framing and prototyping purposes it would need to be a clickable/interactive PDF. The ability to pick and choose what we show would be helpful.

    2) Love the previewing and recording, however it'd be more multi-function if, when previewing, you could gray-out the background - or alternatively allow recording the artboard in full screen mode.

    3) Record Audio. Face would be awesome too,…

  2. (Near) Seamless Integrations

    Think about it - Xd+Dw, Mu, Ps, etc. I am not talking about all in one (Although, that would be extremely awesome!). In Comp, we have the ability to "Send to InDesign." We should be able to, by the click of a button, send a project (with all layers editable) to other programs that have the ability build websites, UI's, etc.

  4. Layout and picture boxes, rulers and guides

    The model for layout programs is to use layout boxes that you import assets into whether text or pictures. This what makes layout programs like indesign so flexible and powerful.

    Mask with shape is absolutely the wrong approach.

    Adobe has had the worlds best layout and design program in indesign for more than a decade now. The XD team seriously need to start paying attention to how things are done in indesign if they want to create a great product. Just because XD is for the digital workspace does not mean that the principals of what make a great layout…

  6. Native OS X UI when possible

    I've noticed that Adobe is trying to use more custom UI elements in it's products which I actually find make them harder - not easier - to use. Products like Sketch have found a real following by using the UI elements and paradigms provided by the operating system. I think XD should use more of the OS UI so that it would feel like other apps that I use and be able to have updated UI styles as the OS is updated over time.

    The requests that have been in the comments thread are all related to existing stories in UserVoice. I’m marking this one as Action Required in order to close it out.

    As noted in other comments in this thread, here are the existing stories you can upvote:

    Thanks!

  7. Everything !

    Every design options Sketch has (style, gradient, type,etc)
    Every Prototype options InVision has (gestures, links, etc, etc,etc
    Every Animation possibilities Principle has
    Every Animation possibilities InVision/Motion will have
    Every prototype options InVision/Silver flow will have.

    Then you can start using the word "revolutionize"
    Because right now their is no way we can switch to that tool !!

    I don't want to be rude, I'm sure its a great deal of work, but the promise was that it would be a one-time tool and it is far far far from that...

    Thanks again for the honest feedback! If XD does not make sense to you, it’s totally ok to use the tools that make sense to your workflow. Hopefully, we will do a good job, deliver value with our monthly releases, and one day you can start using it for real work.

    If you’d like to track the progress in the different areas you highlighted above, could you please break them down in separate feature requests? It would be more useful for you to get updates on the progress of each feature request, separately.

    Thanks a lot.

  8. Good import for easier migrating to the platform

    What is also crucial whenever a new platform comes is a transition to that platform. What if I have 100+ files in .psd or .ai or .sketch and I really like the new XD platform. That's almost 100% chance. For now, no platform have at least average solution for that. I have files in .ai but I want my team to migrate to .psd or .sketch... and it's time consuming mechanistic manual monkey job.

    It would be great and ease the transition if XD will have:
    – Import to XD from .psd, .ai, .sketch with all the artboards
    – Import…

    There are several different requests here, and I think a bunch of them are already tracked as their own individual suggestions:

    Please upvote any of those that you need, so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.

    You can already bring content into XD from all three of these tools by copy-pasting individual elements/layers. Some of the issues listed in the original request here seem to be related to poor fidelity or other problems when importing content this way. If you’re hitting issues like that, could you please file a new UserVoice bug report with as much detail as possible? Ideally, please share screenshots or even an actual AI/PSD/Sketch file that shows the problem.

    Thanks!

  9. My request list

    hi Adobe-Team!
    Great tool so far but there is room for more basic tools.
    - Rulers
    - move a pic in a frame (better crop tool)
    - more options at the text-tool (line hight, different text stlyes in one block)
    - bullet lists (styleable bullets)
    - stylesheets for different objects, text, ...

    Thank you for your great work!
    greetings - chris

    Hopefully you’ve seen a lot more improvements since we launched our first Preview, especially for typographic features!

    I’m marking this as action-required, as we’d like for suggestions to be granular so that we can better aggregate them together. Please do upvote or file separate issues. Here are some suggestions:

    Rulers: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14160699
    Image repositioning within masks: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12930303

    Thanks for your feedback, and hope to hear from you soon!

  10. Digital Ad Prototypes

    I've been looking for a tool like this to prototype digital ads. I love that I can both import from PS and AI and publish to html for sharing. To make digital ads, we'd need:


    • More animation options

    • Animated objects

    • Linked .psd and .ai files (so I can apply features in AI or PS and just use XD for prototyping

    Not essential but helpful:
    + For others to be able to comment on the html prototypes

    Thanks!!

    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.

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

    I will close this request to keep our feature list tidy, but please feel free to file new individual UserVoice suggestions for any other ideas that we may have missed. Thanks for your feedback!

  11. Prototyping + Testing

    I just gave Adobe XD a try, and I have to say- I think it's a great start toward something I might use, but needs a vast amount of work in order to be a truly valuable tool. As a full-time UX/UI Designer, let me tell you what I'd like to see added to this program:

    -The ability to, not only navigate form one page to another, but to add custom animations to that navigation (beyond just "push left" "dissolve" etc).

    -The ability to create animations based on user behavior on a single page. For example, when a user taps…

    We’re trying to keep the requests granular so that we can more easily aggregate feedback and get your vote counted correctly. I’m seeing four requests in here, some of which are already in the database. Please do upvote and add additional suggestions!

    Custom animations: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12958827
    Prototyping logic: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13040145

  12. preset

    would be lovely to have downloadable presets containing a variety of editable assets like color templates, buttons, more transitions and animated effects!

  13. Love it! Please keep going!

    I adore this effort! Thank you so much.
    Will definitely more features to be able to convert from other software to XDCC. A lot of them mentioned in the feedback from other users, but just to name a few: better text styling, symbols, importing color palettes and assets from illustrator and photoshop, rulers, responsive design (if you do this well, you'll rule over all digital design tools)

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! We’ll definitely keep on going. :)

    I’m marking this as action-required; we’d love for you to either file these as separate issues inside UserVoice or simply upvote them so that we can aggregate individual feature feedback. This gives us a better view of what our community as a whole would love to see next!

    Thanks,

  14. Have a serious look at Balsamiq

    Balsamiq has a huge user base, but I think XD has the potential to become the next go-to tool for Prototyping. However, you will need to take a long and serious look at it, and try to at least match 80% of its features, and of course also add the missing ones ;-)


    • Set up project wide snap to grid, in a similar way as PhotoShop.

    • Allow font size, colour and style changes within a paragraph.

    • Create a symbol library for reusable elements.

    • Create an asset library for imported assets.

    • Improve the colour picking tool.

    • Allow the setting of default…

    It’s really difficult for us to aggregate these multiple-feature requests. Please do file these as separate issues in UserVoice so that we can catch your vote!

    BTW, the toggle between design and prototype is already in the product: Ctrl-Tab.

    Thanks!

  16. enable basic web effects!

    great first impression but to make it use full there must be basic effects:
    slideshow (sticky as opption)
    pralax
    maybe hover

    I think most of the items listed here are covered by other feature requests already. Please upvote these if they fit:

    In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. Thanks!

  17. Drag and drop vector files from desktop into canvas

    Similar to photoshop.. I use this all the time and makes getting artwork in projects much easier
