  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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... ;) )

  4. 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 /…

  8. Translucency blur effect

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

  10. [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.

  11. Support symbols import from Illustrator


    1. 0.5.0.4 Beta

    2. Steps to reproduce:
      Create an AI file
      Draw an circle on it (any object, really)
      Drop a symbol on the same artboard
      Select both items
      Copy
      Go to XD
      Paste into XD
      Observe only the object comes over, not the symbol.


    3. Expected Result - Both items should appear in XD


    4. Actual Result - Only the object appears, not the symbol

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
