  1. Apply multiple paragraph styles within same text box

    It would be helpful to apply multiple paragraph styles within the same text box. This is particularly helpful for long bodies of text such as visualising a blog page. Currently you have to split each header, sub head and body copy block into separate text boxes.

  2. Zoom as a querystring in the published design review url "zoom=1" just like fullscreen

    Could we please get the zoom setting as a querystring in the url of the published design review, just like the fullscreen. This would give us the option to view it in 100% in fullscreen. Without that the fullscreen is displayed in the default zoom value which is not 100%.
    Querystring example: ...../?fullscreen&zoom=1

  3. Perpetual License

    I came across a superior licensing (adapted below). It is kind to customers who need the software briefly rather than regularly. To sum it up the software works perpetually but updates require periodic renewal. It also encourages developers to serve the people's needs so they renew the service. Currently you have to pay constantly for software that doesn't have to improve.

    Yearly License Explained
    The yearly license model is becoming a popular pricing model for design tools. It’s fair for developers and customers.

  4. Add web banner artboard presets

    Just like the preset artboard sizes for mobile, tablet, web, social and watch; I would like the web banner sizes to be added to the artboard presets for a quicker set up. Artboard size examples: 300x250, 728x90, 160x600, 300x600, 970x250, 300x50, etc

  5. Fixed comments numbers

    Clients often leave feedback in a comment referring to other comments with their number (eg. ".. see comments n.5.."). The issue is that as I modify the design based on their feedback I resolve each comment, and when they loose their original number because they shift as I resolve them, I can't resolve some comments because I don't know which comment they refer to. I think it would be a great improvement not to shift numbers of comments as they are resolved to keep reference number consistent throughout design versions and comment references.

  6. Warn user if component that they are trying to paste is outdated

    Currently when working with multiple documents, if you have overwrites on a component. And you modify that component, and then paste the component or artboard into a file that has an outdated version of that component.

    It will paste the components but reset the overwrites and set the component back to it's default state. It doesn't inform the user about why it just resetted all their content. Which can be extremely annoying to the user, as this seems very weird. (Which is why there are also several support tickets of people running into this issue).

    After talking with support, I…

  7. Scale all component states when scaling the instance

    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.

  8. Device Specific Layouts

    I think it would make a lot of sense to have an option to toggle between device layouts/designs (Desktop, Tablet, Mobile).

    Each one would have it's own Design/Prototype and Share Modes with each one having it's own Assets Panel, which could be synced between all of them, if the user wanted.

    With this, we could personalize and greatly organize all the assets, styles, etc. into all the devices we wanted to design.

    If the user didn't want to design for web/devices, it would have an option to define which type of design he/she wanted.

  9. Layer Ordering by last added

    Having the option to reverse the order of layers for a file. Every time I create a web mockup with sticky navigation, I have to reorder the layers so the navigation shows as intended in the prototype. XD adds to the top of my layers which is the opposite of design workflows. Seems counterintuitive since generally sites are designed top to bottom.

  11. Identify text objects linked to character style

    Like the 'diamond' symbol you have for components, please add a symbol identifying characters that use a style from the library.
    Also, how do we unlink a text from a library-style?

    Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best when you file only one suggestion per ticket.

    I’ll keep this open for identifying the character style in the design. As for your question, you can change the text formatting in the property inspector to the right and automatically unlink it from the character style in your assets panel.

  12. Alias, Size, and Custom Tokens available in XD

    It would be great to have the Alias, Size, and Custom Tokens available in XD for when I'm designing. Currently my color tokens only show the global versions, and I can't add additional swatches if they share a hex value. We don't want developers using global tokens if an alias or component token exists, so it would be great to have these available to me as I design.

  13. Adobe XD 64-bit download link for Windows on ARM Surface Pro X (64-bit emulator)

    Like the Title says. I was able to run Adobe XD with Windows 11 on my Surface Pro X. I know that making an ARM version takes time but, in the meantime, please make the 64 bit version available in the Creative cloud app. Windows 11 (some windows 10 builds) now have 64 bit support for the ARM devices like the Surface Pro X.

  14. Developer App

    How about a free developer app? The current web developer handoff is already outdated. Due to Windows support, feature development is nonesistant. There have been few big feature updates since 2017. For designers it's fast and great. For everyone who works for designers, not so much.

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re constantly working on the web developer handoff surface, and it’s had some significant updates in the past couple of years. What do you specifically think you’re missing?

    By the way, we do have a large number of Windows users, so we do not intend to stop development on that platform.

  15. Show prototype links of child component states

    In prototype mode, I click through artboards to inspect the inbound and outbound connections. If I set a transition from a component's child state, the only way to see that connection is to activate the state. I would be extremely helpful (esp in large prototypes) if there were some indication of the child state link from the default state.

  16. Move Assets library into its own window

    Assets library MUST be in it's own window and within the component inspector as well!

    Adobe! you've been developing design tools for 30 years and all of them have unique windows for repeatable assets such as Type characters, paragraphs, symbols etc. Please move the Document Library outside the General Library pane! it takes three clicks to jump from one pane (mostly the Layers) to select a document asset.

  17. image export with stacks containing auto-height (creates transparency gaps in image)

    I often have to export modules/images for dev. This includes a text portion which I use auto height with padding. Then I have the elements stacked. If the objects aren't pixel perfect it leave a gap. 

    So for example:

    Vertical Stack 1: 50px height

    Vertical Stack 2: 50px height

    Vertical Stack 3: 50px height

    Exports completely fine because pixel are perfect.

    But if it's not pixel perfect

    Vertical Stack 1: 50px height

    (transparent gap)

    Vertical Stack 2: 51.2px height (because of auto-height element with text)

    (transparent gap)

    Vertical Stack 3: 50px height

    Anyway to fix this issue? Perhaps auto-height feature…

  18. Plugin for Elementor PRO Blocks

    Having a plugin where all the builder's blocks were built out would help our designers (that don't use WordPress) know what's available with the Elementor PRO builder, and could design accordingly. Not to mention it would speed up the creation of mocks if each block sections didn't have to be built piece by piece.
