  2. Comment History

    A comment history would be very helpful for the designer. A client might accidentally delete feedback and for the designer to have the capability to view any and all feedback (resolved/ deleted) would be helpful. That way it can be easily retrieved and the client will not have to worry about having to make those comments all over again. It would be a good safety, "backup" feature.

    Thanks for your feedback. You can already view all of the comments that have been resolved and not on the prototype, but not the deleted. Just to be clear – are you looking at a timeline for comment activity? Or is it just to be able to see deleted comments?

  4. INTUITIVE / Gesture ALIGN

    Move asn object to a "snap grid" then move to another "snap grid" then the object auto aligns to the behaviour and no the command. becoming more of a gesture to align. Zoomed out I could move an object to the boundaries of where I want it to align and it would centre to the snap boundaries.

  5. Opacity in master component

    I would like to see opacity value added to the component functionality, so that if I adjust the opacity in a master component, all the child components will have the same opacity value.

  6. CONVERT TO CODE

    We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.

    Hi, all-

    “Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.

  7. Baseline shift for individual character

    I sometimes need to adjust the position of the trademark or register trademark icons in my screens, after changing the size, but I cannot because there is no baseline shift.

  8. Share voice prototype through the app, not in a web browser

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to share a voice prototype externally for testing using the Adobe XD app. Currently, when you share a prototype link, it automatically opens in a mobile browser which isn't ideal for testing an app experience.

  9. Unlinking components

    In certain scenarios, I would like to unlink my components from other files, eg. if i imported the wrong components.

    Right now there seems to be no way of unlinking your components, other than creating a new file and manually delete the one you already have.

  11. Dim background (set tint + alpha) behind overlay

    Love the new overlays feature! As an extended feature it would be great if you could choose what should happen to the background when the overlay appears. For example being able to dim the background by choosing a color and opacity.

    This would help with darkening the background for modals etc.

  13. Managing Multiple CC Accounts

    The ability to download single files or folders from the cloud. Currently if you have multiple CC accounts (e.g. personal vs work) you have to download all files to your local computer. Or if you only want to work on a single project you need to download your entire CC library, which isn't necessary to work on single projects or files.

    When I use the prototype in the iOS app, it fails to show commonly used fonts like Montserrat or SFPro(?) it has no sense that fails to show when the iPhone Uses that fonts

    Hi there! SF Pro should display, but I’m not 100% sure Montserrat is installed by default on Apple devices. Have you checked out the answer to the question “Why some of my fonts are not being transferred to the mobile device?” on this page? Why some of my fonts are not being transferred to the mobile device?

  15. Export artboard as high quality image(s)

    This was previously suggested but it seemed like it needed to be reposted (if not, feel free to delete this request).

    Outside of maybe SVG for obviously (?) reasons, the exported file looks pixelated. The exports do not look presentable--I've been better off with screenshots but screenshots are screenshots. I would love if this request gets a second look.

  16. Keep text editable when converted to a component

    XD v 19.1.22.6.

    I converted a button into component. Duplicated the component, and went to edit the text on the next button, and it was no longer editable. The text became a shape when converted to a component.

    Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but seems important.

  17. Adjust artboard height from top of the artboard like in Sketch

    If you have an artboard full with content and you want to add more content in near the top of the artboard, currently you can only increase the height of the artboard from the bottom.

    It would be great if you could also adjust the artboard height from the top of the artboard. This would reduce the time it takes to rearrange the content within the artboard.

    Sorry for the delay! In this case, there’s a way to do what you want to do.

    1. Select the artboard
    2. Turn on Responsive Resize
    3. Select the objects you want to pin to the bottom temporarily
    4. Switch responsive resize to “Manual”
    5. Click on the bottom pin
    6. Resize the artboard from the top

    In this case, your objects will actually pin to the bottom when you resize your artboard. Please let me know if you want something different than this.

  18. Assets Switch

    Hi ppl,

    It would be great if we can switch assets color on Art-board by selecting 2 colors and giving option like "Switch colors" or "Switch color to". Check the attached image.

    Cheers,
    Manohar

  19. Use current file location as Save as default path

    When I select "Save As" it would make a lot of sense to use the file's current location as the default path. Currently XD seems to use the path that was used last time when using XD, regardless of the file.

    I use file number versioning alot, and I have "lost" my files multiple times just to find out them being accidentally saved into the folder of another project.

    While I understand the need for precision, creating grids that snap off-pixel actually makes designing for screens less accurate, as it often forces elements to anti-alias, leading to less crisp artwork when you output. Are you absolutely sure you need columns that are off-pixel? If so, can you explain why?
