    2. Steps to reproduce:

  3. Keep multiple different shared Prototype versions live

    Currently when update a shared prototype, it replaces the previous version, it would be nice to have the option to retain previous versions.

    These versions could then be compared side by side to easily review changes, as an added bonus the versions could be linked together so as you navigate one version the previous version would move in sync (where possible)

    In a future update, there will be an option to create a “new” public link. This keeps the previous one in tact in addition to creating a new one.

  4. Warn if missing fonts when opening document

    When opening a document there needs to be a warning if the fonts used are not currently active.

    At this time it involves a lot of guess work to remember which fonts a used in a specific project to have the active before opening the document.

    thanks!

  5. Welcome Screen usability

    Your startup screen breaks one of the basic rules of usability : What can I interact with?

    Everything is gray. Titles, desc text, links and buttons.

    PROBLEM: The layout is fine, but you have turned your startup screen into 'mystery meat' navigation. What can I click on? What is a call to action? Do I have to hover over everything to figure this out?

    Think about this. Also, gray links are historically 'disabled' color. Whether it's a button or a link, it usually means 'disabled'. I understand that shades of grey are the new cool design thing, but for your…

  6. Color picker should stay active when switching between apps

    When switching between apps, for. example when copying hex from browser to Xd, Color dialog window always disappear and I always have to click on Fill option in Appearance tab to get Color dialog back on. It would be much easier for window to stay open when switching between apps.

  7. Navigation between slides

    I am creating multiple slides at once. I am using it as a storyboard, so to speak. Problem is that I can't move from one part of the screen to the next slide like I normally would as a map (hand). Further complicating the problem is that when I re-size the screen, navigation gets more difficult (can't locate how far in the x and y access things are from each other). I wish the screen was easier to move around on.

  8. edit pathfinder shapes

    Editing a pathfinder ( Add, subtract, intersect, etc.) would be beneficial to create the perfect shape without building new shapes or paths. Example: location pin - If the circle within the teardrop is off by 2px, I can select the circle shape and move it instead of selecting anchor points.

  9. Full screen support on OS X

    Support OS X fullscreen mode to allow quick app switching, dual full screen apps in versions past El Capitan, and distraction-free editing.

  10. positioning relative to artboard

    I find the option to position elements relative to artboard is a missing feature.

    Not only for center to artboard, but also, let's say I change the width of the artboard, if the element is centered it should keep that way.

    If it's aligned to right it should be like glued to the artboard right edge.

    This is possible today: just hold down Alt (aka Option) while dragging one corner handle. In the near future you will also be able to set separate corners from the properties panel, which should help make this easier to discover.

  13. Copying elements from AI to XD loses shadow

    When pasting elements with shadow from Ai to XD, the element is pasted but without the shadow

  14. copy & paste

    Copy & paste the same artboard style (with exactly the same items on it) to another artboard. Also copy & paste the same item with the same position to another artboard (cmd + alt + shift + v) as in InDesign.

    If you select an artboard, copy and paste it, another artboard will be created with all the same contents.

    If you copy an item from one artboard and copy it to another, the location of the item should match where it was copied from.

    This is in our current update of XD as of this writing.

  15. Object menu lists entries which are in fact unavailable

    If I click on the Object menue, I see lots of active entries even if currently no shape in an artboard is selected. And if a shape or an image is selected, "Object > Mask with Shape" is active, even if I had selected only the image or the shape (but the command only works with both selected).

    Desired behaviour: Menue entries should only be active if applicable, otherwise grayed out.

  18. Paste SVGs from Sketch files correctly

    Paste SVGs from Sketch files correctly. Right now you can't paste an icon from Sketch directly into Adobe XD. What you get is the rectangle with the bounding box, not the actual SVG you wanted.

    In our July update, we will have direct copy/paste from Sketch to XD via PDF on the clipboard. SVG import will likely still give you better fidelity going from Sketch to XD. We have made improvements to the import with every release, so, please try it again.

    1) In Sketch, do “Copy SVG” from the context menu
    2) Paste into XD.

  19. Right Click

    There is no Right Click Option, which would be useful, especially for the "Make Repeat Grid" Feature
