  2. Drag guides from anywhere

    It would be great to be able to drag guides from anywhere, not just the top and left of an art board. Sometimes I am editing a master component on the pasteboard and I cannot grab any guides. Other times I am zoomed in or at the bottom of a long page and I have to zoom out go and grab a guide and then find my place again. I would like to be able to get guides no matter where I am, I am thinking of allowing them to be pulled out globally from the top of the interface…

  3. 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.

  4. Shortcut to apply a color from the asset panel to a border

    It would be nice if I could hold the alt / option key and click on a colour in the asset panel, to apply it to the border of a selected shape, instead of having to right-click and then select "Apply to border"

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. Sync plugins across devices for same account

    I have All Apps CC Plan. I only get access to my XD plugins from one installation of XD whilst the other is blank. This sucks cause I spend a ton of time prepping XD with alot of plugins that I cherry picked, tried and tested, and it doesn't have any effect on my other XD installment on the SAME CC license. It should be shared installments so we avoid repeating tedious tasks like this.

  8. Make master/primary component out of modificated instance

    In Sketch I was used to make a symbol A (master/primary component A) change it (modificated instance) and make a new symbol B (master/primary component B) out of this. So if I change symbol A it also changes symbol B.

    Thanks for your feedback! While you can’t create a new master out of an instance, you can work around it by selecting the instance, making a group with just that object, and then making the group a new instance. The inheritance should work the way you want then. Are you looking for something different?

  9. swapping a nested component should change name in layers

    When I have a component like a card with a button in it (button is a nested component) and I drag a different button in to swap it out, the card component should update the original button name with the new name in the layers panel.

  10. Save to or Push Updates to Master Components

    "Save to Master Component" and/or "Push/Save as Master Component", so that any changes you've made to a component can be put into the master.

  11. 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.

  13. Change text properties after initiating text box

    To speed up typing, I believe it would be highly beneficial to change the way text properties can be changed.

    Currently, when i select my type tool and initiate a text box/field, if I want to change the current text properties, I'd have to begin typing, deselect/highlight my text, change my properties, then i can continue on.

    Alternatively, I think it would be handy to be able to initiate a text field and before having to type, be able to change the properties of the text you will then type.

  14. reveal color in assets panel available when assets panel is not open

    I would like to be able to reveal the color in the assets panel, even if the assets panel is not open. If I have the layers panel open the option is currently not in the context menu. It would be great if it was an option regardless of what panel is open and if clicked it would automatically open the appropriate assets
    panel.

  17. Support for macOS Catalina Sidecar

    Is XD going to have capability with MacOS 10.15 Catalina’s new SideCar feature? Apple announced that Select apps such as Illustrator would have support, but I’m not sure if XD will have support.

  18. 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.

  20. Export style sheet for developers

    Dev gets confused about what styles are what. I thought the XD Share for Dev link would have the styles in the sidebar, but there are none. I even have a master document with all of my assets: fonts, colors, and elements. Now I have to go back in and manually annotate what fonts are connected to what styles.. It would be a small addition, but would be super great in striving to better communicate with my dev team. Thank you for your consideration!
