  1. Responsive Artboard

    XD currently pretty well handles responsive resizing of elements. Why not make it available for the whole artboard?

    You would be able to set an artboard as responsive, so on preview/developer view, the artboard width can be changed and all elements placed on this artboard will be scaled up or down accordingly (including the grid - but to do this, there must be an option to define a grid with percentage values).

    Placing elements on your artboard, you can also define their width as a percentage of the column width, or multiple column width.

    You can also define breakpoints. Then…

  2. Disclosure triangles instead of double click to open a layers panel group

    Why do I need to click 2 times on an folder on the layers panel to open it?
    I think it works better on Photoshop when the folder as a triangle with drop down.
    every time to get inside a folder the user needs to double click it is not comfortable for the user. I prefer the Photoshop convention

  3. Framer x like stacks

    Adobe XD is still lagging behind on features that make other tools amazing like Framer X and Stack Groups, Sketch has it as well with plugins like Anima.

    Being able to set fixed elements that work like real life flexbox make the process 10x faster.

    Framer X also lets you adjust padding all around of a background

  4. Turn off the setting to navigate the art board with the left and right keys

    I want to turn off the setting to navigate the art board with the left and right keys when previewing.

    Generate problems during usability testing.

  5. Independent paragraph spacing options (before/after)

    Like photoshop, being able to set left/right indents. Also having the ability to set different before/after spacing and leading in the same text box to eliminate having to have a lot of text boxes on an artboard.

    Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best if you separate out your feedback by individual feature requests. I’ll change this ticket to focus on independent before/after paragraph spacing.

  6. Relink components to a different master

    It would be helpful to relink all instances of a linked component in a given document to a different component, in similar fashion to relinking an image in InDesign to a different external image source.

  8. option to disable native keyboard navigation between artboard

    Hey Adobe, may update is great, Keyboard trigger is great but…(always a "but")
    I made a prototype that i can manipulate with the arrows and i don't want the native left and right navigation to be active when i test my prototype.
    I think a little option is missing in a general project parameters.

    Thank you !

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Jason has information for you in a comment: “When sharing, uncheck “Show Navigation Controls”. Doing this will (1) remove the left/right buttons displayed below the prototype and (2) disable arrow key navigation.”

    Please let us know if this resolves your issue! If so, we can close this ticket.

  9. Hide viewport line from artboard

    Hi, I would like the viewport dotted line not to be visible while I am designing. Sometimes I just like to have a bird-eye view on my design and I don't want more clutter there.
    It can be only the indicator in the left side active, and on click the dotted line can appear.

    Thanks!

  10. Fixed/sticky after scrolling

    First of all, congrats on the new update, it's awesome!

    One of the most awaited features for me was the fixed/sticky option. One thing that got in my mind after trying it was making something "stick" after scrolling, like a "go back top" button, which you don't want to have before you actually start scrolling.

  11. Apply text from the document to repeat grid

    What if we could add text rows ALSO directly from Xd withous using TXT files? Here is my suggestion to make repeat grid better IMHO.

  12. Rectangular Marquee Measurement Tool

    A tool that allowed me to make rectanular measurements would be useful. It could behave like the selecting marquee tools in PS.
    https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/selecting-marquee-tools.html

    This would be valuable because it would quickly give more specs to parts of the mockup that are not always XD elements. For example, if there was part of a mockup that was a screenshot, the XD measurement tools are not as accurate. Also is helpful for finding sizes of invisible containers. This would allow developers to freely grab measurements quickly for anything on the page.

    Thank you!

  13. Show Gradient Stops Percent

    Currently there's no way to know the percentage of the Gradient Stops.

    I need to know where each color on the gradient is (from 0 to 1 or 0% to 100%) in order to translate this into code for an App.

    In the image attached you can see the problem. Tell me where the middle circle is. It's not at 50%, maybe 57%? Maybe 55%? This wastes development time for something so simple.

  14. Drag and Drop Interaction

    I'd love to be able to prototype drag and drop interactions (hover effect, ability to move an item on screen, and ideally trigger when something is dropped onto an object).

  16. Auto-animate stroke dash and gap values

    Currently the stroke width is animated with auto-animate,
    would be cool also to get the "Trim Paths"-style (After Effects) stroke
    length animation for creating animations for outlined illustrations.

  17. save for web feature like photoshop for exporting assets

    When I export assets from xd, it generally takes more space. And I can't directly import files from xd to photoshop, so first I have to import into illustrator and then to photoshop and then I can use save for web to optimize my assets.
    So please incorporate a feature so that I can directly export assets from xd with compression.

  18. Make the keyboard shortcut for Assets/ Layers toggle the same

    Please, can you make the keyboard shortcut to switch between the asset panel and layers the same?

    My brain absolutely cannot get used to 'Shift' 'Command' + 'Y' to go to assets then 'Command' +'Y'. I end up turning off the panel and then turning it back on every time before doing the correct shortcut 🤪

    Make it just be 'Command' + 'Y' to toggle assets and layers!

  19. Find next component (highlight on canvas one-by-one)

    To whom this may concern,

    Hello,

    I am one of the Adobe XD users and just have few questions regarding any planned updates for the functions of “highlight on canvas” function in the Assets Panel.
    Currently on the artboard, it is clearly indicated where the function is on the Assets Panel, but for the large-scale projects, where many artboards are maintained, it is difficult to determine where exactly the component is highlighted, even when the function is used.
    Also, during the execution of a large-scale project, it is difficult to determine where each personnel has used the canvas.
    If I…

  20. Tag comments as !Important

    Add a button or some way to allow the commenter or Owner to mark comments as "Important". This would visually change the comment itself as well as the pin, if it's pinned. The button or status could also be clicked again/removed to allow the comment to go back to normal status and not Important.

    Attached is a quick example of what could be done, to allow the eyes to quickly see what's been marked priority over other comments.
