  1. Static / Fixed objects between transitions

    When I swipe between screens I do not want the header and footer bar to slide with the transition, just the content area. Please create a function for this

    We’re actively working on this. Stay tuned for more updates.

    If you’d like to contribute to our thinking and help shape this feature, please write to me at hnarayan(at)adobe(dot)com

  3. Version Control - store history/timeline of revisions

    It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

  4. Clipped Scrolling List inside a pop-up.

    Eg: When you have a friends list inside a game screen, in a prototype, I need to be able scroll in a clipped mask of a container, which is currently possible in Principle, which makes a group scrollable vertically or horizontally. I'm looking for the equivalent of the same here.

  5. Better svg export

    Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
    the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

    It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

    A cleaner svg would…

    Hi,

    The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

    Cheers,

  6. Design Specs for Enterprise customers

    I'd love to see a way for for Enterprise customers whose companies have chosen not to permit sharing to be able to take advantage of the Design Specs feature. We need a way to export a local file that shows the specs that we can share on our internal, private networks. Without this, your largest customers are still left drawing design specs by hand.

  7. Scale/resize symbols individually

    I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

    Please let us scale the symbols

  12. Scrollable Area (not scrolling whole artboard)

    Define a scrollable area within an artboard

    This provides real-world app use cases, such as a table, slideshow, or iOS dropdown lists.

  13. 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.

  14. Design with Data

    I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

    I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.

    Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

    In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

    If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

  17. More default animations and easings

    It would be great with a few more features/interactive animations when you link the pages. More easing options. I guess what I'm saying I would like to have more animations and effects based on what we have on websites and apps to this date.

    transition presets

  18. Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

    It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

  19. Simpler way to Crop Photos

    There should really be a tool to crop photos by selection (maybe by double clicking on it and using the control points) but it took me a while just to figure out that i have to mask by shape just to crop a photo.
