  2. Just change one word in the German version of Adobe XD

    I really enjoy working with CC libraries. But within the German version of Adobe XD it's called "CC-Bibliotheken" in the menu but the panel is named "CC Libraries".

    So please change the wording from "CC-Bibliotheken" to "CC Libraries" to make it consistent.

    Thanks!
    Rainer

  3. Export font files using plugin

    Like rendition, if we can export font files applied to text using Adobe XD Plugin.

    Developers needs font files along with images so it would be required feature.

    For Example:
    - If a text later has font Lato, I want to know the location of Lato.ttf in the file system

  4. Resize multistates components

    when you resize a component with multiples states (for exemple a button with his hover and clicked) it would be great to resize automatically each states in a same time.

  5. Color Palette Organizer

    In an Enterprise Design Language setup for product suits, we have extensive usage of the DLS, and the color palette is one of the most important asset for us. We have categories of colors and multiple colors signify different usages of colors according to context.

    It will be great to have these:

    1. The color palette appearing on Fill/ Border color etc, need to have organization possible, to create categories of colors. So its easier to chose the right color for right element.

    2. The global colors in assets and color palette need to be linked, so if there is…

  6. Export entire prototype as a User/Wire Flow type diagram

    It's very easy to create linked "prototypes" within XD - thank you...

    However, the way a prototype is viewed makes seeing the "flows" that exist within it very hard.

    What I would like to see is a way to export all the artboards with the prototype "linking" arrows visible and nicely rendered as a large diagram...

    This diagram would be similar to the concept of "Wireflows" (https://www.nngroup.com/articles/wireflows/) and enable an easy way to produce another type of design deliverable.

    I appreciate that the design specs feature sort of allows this, in that you can see see all artboards,…

  7. Allow a user the ability to drag-and-drop layers into a Master Component.

    My feature request would be to allow a user the ability to drag-and-drop layers into a Master Component.Currently you can't drag-and-drop layers into a Master Component. My use case would be: I begin a design in XD and have multiple screens/artboards, then a week goes by and my designer has the branding logo ready for me to add. I now have to ungroup my master component, regroup, "Make Component" again, and then re-duplicate it across all my artboards

  8. Pressed State preset

    It would be great to aslo have a preset "pressed state" wich wil trigger an animation on the same basis as the preset "hover state" but applied to a tap trigger :
    - Hover in = start animation
    - Hover out = reverse animation

    So, for pressed state, it would go as such :

    - Key/Tap press = start animation
    - Key/Tap release = reverse animation

    It would also be great to enable a "Long Press/Tap" trigger by creating a new trigger or adding the possibility to set a tap duration on tap trigger.

  9. Scale all components styles.

    I have animated icons with auto animate and wish to use them in two sizes: Small size in the menu and big size in the features page.
    When I scale up or down the component it only scale that one specific state. We need it a way to scale all states so we can have a few less components. and a fast workflow.

  10. Can't export prototype to Alexa Preview (skill) if [space] used for speech playback on first art board

    In order to export an Adobe XD prototype to Alexa Preview, the first artboard must contain actual content; an empty space will result in export error. This is a new issue as previous exports have accepted a single space as content.

    I wasted several hours trying to address this. My exhaustion to figure it out on my own led me to leave a 1-star rating on Amazon for the XD skill, a phone call to the Adobe support team, rescheduling a client meeting and lost wages.

    My feature request:
    Make export error handling better and more descriptive.

    Explicit indication that…

  11. Show component name in the design specs

    It's great to have the component at last. But now I need to communicate the component name with the developers. for example: the values of a certain text are not interesting - they only need to know its class (is it H1, H2...?)

    Swatches already have the name (only on hover, why?) in the specs, so it's obvious you did recognise the need for that.

  12. Expand Component palette in XD UI

    Now that we are all loving the ability to add States to Components... My "component" box in the upper right is getting busy, and I'm having to scroll constantly! It looks like we have plenty of vertical space in the XD UI to allow this area to expand... either as needed (to a certain point of course!), or allow the user to drag this palette longer, similar to other CC apps.

  13. New state feature doesn't sync when assets updated

    I have a separated file for all assets and my actual project, so what I usually do is call the assets file from clouds (this is so my other team member able to use the same assets when they working on other pages).

    So with the new state feature where I can add hover and other states to my buttons, I change some of my buttons in the master assets file (the one i save on clouds) and then I click update assets on my project file.

    The default state is updated but not the other states (hover, inactive, etc..)…

  14. Revert to previous 'Share' UI

    The previous 'Share' UI was fast, simple, and easy to use.

    This new UI is confusing, unnecessary, and wasteful. Was it designed by the same people who created the new AdobeCC UI????

    A) The new 'Share' Tab is useless. I can already see what I'm sharing on either of the other tabs - having a 3rd tab is completely asinine unless there is some helpful functionality to this screen/view.

    B) The only functionality I have in this state is 'zoom' - a state I cannot exit once I've clicked on the 'zoom' tool. AND the keyboard/mouse shortcut I actually use…

  16. Update Component Preview in Assets Panel when Master Component is edited

    Currently, after creating a component, there is a preview image of that component in the assets panel. But if you make a change to that master component (for example, changing a green object to red) the preview in the assets panel does not update. So even though I now want this component to be a red object, it becomes very hard to find it in the assets panel, at a glance because it is still green in the preview image.

  17. renaming components does not propagate to components on artboards

    I would like to rename components in the asset panel and have those names propogate to the layers on artboards.

  18. Comments should allow mentioning users from your team and guests

    At the moment, the mentioning functionality becomes populated with users only after they have posted a comment (refer to screenshots), even when the link is viewed by users within the same team (account type - wise).

    However, if we delete an user's comments, mentioning doesn't reflect that (still shows that user in the list), so we are currently doing that to simulate the feature.

    It would be very helpful if there was this flexibility in working collaboratively with XD, as my team is trying to evangelise using this product to management over other competitors.

    Moreover, mentioning is only available for…

  19. Categorize comments

    I'd like to be able to tag/categorize comments

    Use case: To distinguish between notes related to design, development, copywriting etc.

  20. Function to link multiple XD files so that multiple products can link

    I want a function that allows multiple XD files to work together. This is a viewpoint for a "system" in which multiple products operate in conjunction.
    Necessary for designing the linkage between a smartphone and a watch.
    This perspective should become very important in a few years.

    It is not that multiple users operate XD at the same time.
