  1. Please add an Exit Button in Mobile app to exit from preview mode.

    There is no exit button for Adobe XD android app when you're in preview mode. Pressing the back button in android mobile, send us to the previous artboard and we can only exit when we get back to the starting(first) artboard. I'd like an easy way to exit from preview mode.

  2. Forward private prototype notifications to clients or stakeholders by email

    When I publish a prototype and share it with collegues or clients, they make comments on it. But as the owner of the prototype, only I get notifications when a new comment is made.

    I like the new feature that allows us to publish private prototypes and invite people. They might get notifications on Adobe Creative Cloud, but even if they create an Adobe account, not all of them would download Adobe Creative Cloud or check the account regularly. It would be great if they also get the notifications by e-mail, like they get the invitation.

    In case of any comment activity on a private link, reviewers are notified via email as well as creative cloud desktop app. This is already working today if you use the latest version of XD.

    Note that email notifications go to any reviewer for that comment thread where activity is happening. You also have the ability to @mention specific reviewers on the private link.

  3. A text with multiple styles only the first one is show on design specs

    For an example, when I have some bold text inside a paragraph, the design specs for that paragraph should state that not only that text is Arial 12px but also has some bold inside.

    I’m happy to announce that starting today, with the latest update, Artboard Guides functionality is part of XD!

    Creation is very simple, you can simply point to the top and left of any artboard, click and drag to create guides.

    You can check how Guides work in a short video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnalFtR2KMA ) or check out Adobe XD’s help pages to see all the details of the feature (https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/artboards-grids.html#custom-artboard-guides).

    Happy designing!

  5. Responsive Design

    Would love to see a way to prototype for different screen but not to copy paste and adjust the size - make it like in Indesign that we can link files to different sizes.

    Have a tool that can collect the assets and place them together into a different scree.

    Hello,

    With last week’s update of XD, we introduced Responsive Resize – a way to easily resize your elements as you adapt them to different screen sizes. This should massively speed up your workflow.

    Download the latest version of XD to give it a try, and check out a 3 min overview of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKvg8_8jv10&t=2s

    Look forward to hearing what you think!

  6. Fixed elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

    Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

    Fixed elements are finally here!! We’re incredibly excited to announce that you can select any top-level element in your artboard and click “Fixed Position” to fix your element anywhere in the viewport.

  7. Search for keywords in plugin manager

    Would love to be able to search for keywords in the plugin manager (i.e. "icons", "data") so finding related plugins will be easer.

  8. Paste above currentyl selected layer instead on top most position

    Currently pasting something is always placed on the top most position, that should be changed. Instead pasted elements should always be positioned above the currently selected layer.

    Thansk in advance.

  9. Color asset highlighting

    When object with applied asset color or font style is selected, highlight those assets in the left bar so I know which one is applied.

  10. Share prototype with customers so that they can view on their mobile devices

    First of all: I LOVE XD! Thanks for this great software!

    My issue is, that sharing the prototype on the web is nice, but our customers request to see the prototype on their mobile devices - but not with the online link, because they can't see the complete screen without scrolling and that looks not like an app more than a webpage.

    Now the only possibility is to download the xd app, login or register and connect the mobile device with the computer, where the file is open. How can our customer see and test the prototype in the same…

    Hi All,

    With the new release of XD, we have made few improvements in the viewing and navigation elements on mobile browsers. Now, you can scroll up to dismiss the browser chromes on mobile browsers. You can also pinch to minimize the artboard and access the navigation controls.
    Please try out the enhancements and share your feedback with us.

    Best Regards

  11. Export/Downloading PNG/JPEG/SVG from Design Specs

    Often what happens is that Developers require some assets in either SVG format or any of the other image formats.

    Using Design Specs, exporting/downloading a specific icon/vector shape would help ease the asset transferring between Designers and Developers. This would also help maintain the right assets and share it with ease.

  12. Anonymous Log-In For Reviewers

    Would be very helpful not to require clients/stakeholders to create an Adobe account simply to review their comps. This could be sandboxed within private links to solve security concerns (ie., if they have the link, they can be assumed safe to allow comments from). Many clients won't do so, forcing to send a JPG or PDF via Dropbox instead, which defeats the purpose of having used a prototyping tool.

    With the August 2019 release, we’ve enabled the ability for developers to copy css attributes from design specs links.

    Thanks for the support and keep the feedback coming on how we can further deliver more value through such code snippets in XD

  14. Design Specs link - Display unique Typographic Specs within one textbox

    See attached Screenshot for reference;

    If a designer has set up multiple fonts / weights / sizes within one textbox, the design specs link can only read one spec per textbox. This forces the designer to change their workflow by setting up every heading/ paragraph etc. within a new textbox, to allow the developer to read all the specs.

    We need to be able to see the unique specs for typography (font name, weight, size etc) wether or not it's set up in one textbox.

    Also for example, suppose I have one sentence in which only two words are bolded,…

  15. Allow interaction wires/links from objects inside a symbol

    I was so excited about the new symbols feature that I made all of my navbars in a design a symbol. This may be one of the most obvious uses of symbols, since every page will almost always have the same navbar. But you can't connect objects inside a symbol. Therefore, you can't connect nav items, icons, logos in a nav bar.

    Either allow connects for objects inside symbols, but don't propagate them in all instances, or DO propagate them in all instances. But you HAVE to be able to connect objects inside symbols in prototype mode.

    Otherwise, we can…

  16. Multiple Color in Text - Design Specs

    If there is a paragraph where there text color is not everywhere the same, on the design specs you can view only one color and not the second one.

    It would be nice and handy especially for the developers, to be able to see/pick all the colors that are used inside a paragraph placeholder on the design specs mode.

  17. Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

    Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

    Hi everyone,

    I’m glad to announce that the text uppercase, lowercase and title case transformations are now available with the XD 19 release.

    Pro Tip: You can apply the transformations to characters styles and make global updates across the document.

    Learn more about text improvements and our May release here: https://theblog.adobe.com/xd-may-2019-update-create-design-systems

    Enjoy and let us know your feedback!

    Best,
    Dan

  20. Make Styles panel collapsible, or add fullscreen mode in Design Specs

    When viewing design specs on smaller screens, the top, right, and bottom panels take up too much space. I recommend making the right panel collapsible, the bottom panel shorter, and the top panel transparent like the bottom one.
