  1. Show Layout Grid in Development Share Link

  2. Switch between grid and flow view for Share for Development

    There has been a recent change to the share for Dev view. We relied on that view to express flows. Now it is in a grid similar to Zeplin. I get the change, but not the removal. It would be great to be able to switch between the two. This way individual assets are still quickly accessed and the flow can also be expressed. Our devs were looking at the linking and able to view the overall flow. This was determined to be extremely helpful.

  3. Resizing elements within components should resize bounds

    Give us the ability to re-size master components after we create them. Currently if you add/change anything outside of the master component initial size, it gets masked off with no way to resize the master (and then all the instances) of the component.

    Hi XD Community -

    Thanks for your feedback!

    With XD’s August release, you could resize/move/add/remove objects inside a component, and the component bounds will automatically adjust to fit those objects.

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

  4. Coediting Error 2143

    Trying out the new coediting feature in November 2019 update. It's good and convenient. However, i currently encounter document crashing as it is unable to reconnect.

    Having previous version is helpful as it backs up my working file and enabling me to download it. But I would still like it to be saved into the same document instead of forcing me to close. The current cloud doc is considered as a corrupted file. It is troublesome as I need to recreate a new cloud file for other partners once again. Viewer/reviewers also cannot use back the same link to view…

  6. Move Fix Position when scrolling back to design mode

    i ve just noticed you removed the preserve scroll position from design. This is a horrible thing for me. Doing that forces me to prototype EVERYTHING.

    for example: i have 100 artboards that are unconnected due to time saving ( i dont need to prototype everything ) but moving that button forces me to do it becaus now i cant make a quick preview for my client where he can scroll up and down. Now i will have to connect ALL 100+ boards together.

    why? Because when you are EXPORTING for REVIEW or DEVELOPMENT
    only the connected boards are being…

  7. Italian language support


    1. Why don't you extend the language of the software even to Italian?
      Are we children of a minor Adobe by chance?

  8. Horizontal and Vertical Stacks

    Using stacks in both horizontal and vertical orientations would bring the prototype much closer to to how development works, specially in mobile, providing much more relatable deliverables.

    A "spacing" property could also be used in the stack, providing better control over the design.

    A toggle between horizontal and vertical is something that would help but is not necessary.

  9. Deselect Home Artboard

    Need the ability to 'deselect' the home artboard.

    Issue: If I create a prototype with links to the home artboard I can share everything linked to home.

    If I then need to remove all connectors so none of the pages were linked, but I still want to publish all artboards, it won't allow me to do it. Only the home artboard is selected.

    Basically, once you have physically selected the home artboard by clicking the home icon (rather than having XD do it by default when you create your first board) then you're done! Only one screen can be published…

  10. Multiple interactions on a single artboard

    We need to add multiple ways of moving from one screen to another. Currently the only way to do this is to add the interactions to various elements on the artboard, which makes it difficult to find where those interactions are.

    For example, to move from artboard A to artboard B, a user could press Home, Down or say "Artboard A". I can only add one of these interactions to the artboard as a whole at the moment.

  11. Change Save As behavior to remove Copy of

    Remove "Copy of" text from filename when I "Save As" — Change to number increment

    Every time I want to save a new iteration of my file, I hit Command+Shift+S to "Save As".

    XD automatically adds "copy of" to the beginning of the filename and I have to delete it every. Single. Time.

    Does anybody actually names their files this way? You'd end up with "copy of copy of copy of copy of filename" instead of a simple numbered "filename 5".

    Would be cool to see XD smartly increase the number by 1 every time like it does with the artboards.…

  12. Multiple Interactions on a Single Element

    Allow for multiple interactions on a single elements. Aka, be able to drag multiple wires from a single object.

    Use case 1: When designing a carousel, a user should be able to swipe on an object left or right and navigate to the next or previous slide.

    Use case 2: When designing an app with similar interactions to Bumble or Tinder, the test subject should be allowed multiple interactions on the same object. Swipe up, down, left, or right.

    We introduced the ability to add multiple interactions on a single element in the most recent version of XD. You can select an object and select the + button on the wire or in the prototype mode property inspector to add an interaction!

  13. Changelog for every XD update

    Major releases seem to get changelog updates in a handful of places, but not all updates are clear as to what is actually being improved. It's kind of annoying and confusing to update, like the one 2 days ago for example, and have no clue what's changed even after a google search. It makes it unclear if this is the "monthly" update or bugfixes or whatever. Would be cool to see what's actually improved.

  14. Enable saving documents locally for Starter plan

    "Starting from April 2020, these features that are currently a part of Adobe XD ...
    Saving to your computer, though you can still save to cloud documents."

    Feature request: Don't remove local saving. Why would you do this? What possible benefit does this have for me as a user? Why would I choose to use a service that doesn't let me save my work locally?

  15. Indication of master component on the layers panel

    There's nothing that I have found that indicates that a component is a master component or not, other than the green outline(instead of blue) only when selected, and right-clicking every component and seeing whether "Edit Master Component" exists or not in the context-menu. These two current indicators are not helpful at a high level because you have to select or click on each individual component instead of being able to see this information at a glance in the component/layers list.

    The layer/component icon changes when the group is open(revealing the layers inside) or closed. This is not a necessary change…

  16. Publish Character Style Names in Design Specs

    When you are working with many different fonts it's handy to name them to keep check of what you are working with. However when uploading the design specs to hand over to the developer, it lists the font styles WITHOUT the custom names.

    Please can you upload the style names too?

    Hi everyone,

    With XD May release, now you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    Please give it a try and let’s us know what you think

    The latest iOS12 XD UI Kit is now available on the Apple website and is reachable through the links within XD, on the start screen and the “Get UI kits” menu item. Thank you for your votes and patience as we worked through the issue.

  19. Responsive Resizing of Symbols

    The new responsive resize function seems pretty great, but it would take it to the next level for me if I could use it with symbols. This would make form fields and components super easy!

    Hi All,

    We’re excited to announce that with our May release, we have introduced Components (previously known as symbols). Components are design elements with unmatched flexibility that help you create and maintain repeated elements while varying the instances for different contexts and layouts.

    You can create a master component to define a reusable element, such as a button, and you can change any of its properties to customize instances of that element (Size & Layout, Style and Appearance, and Structural overrides). Changes you make to an individual instance are specific to that element, but changes you make to the master propagates to all the instances where the property hasn’t been customized.

    Components now could also be responsively resized with the same powerful capabilities of responsive resize baked in.

    Finally, you could link components across documents to maintain a single source of your components using the Link Assets feature or simply…

  20. Overlay positioning below "fold"

    I would like to be able to position an overlay so that it is connected to a specific element regardless of whether that element is below the "fold". For tooltip, dropdown menus, and other interactive elements, overlays are awesome. However, in doing responsive design work for enterprise applications, there are many instances where a dropdown or tooltip will appear below the fold.

    As of MAX of this year, we’ve enabled component states, which will give you the flexibility you need to be able to create flyouts, dropdowns, and other interactive elements that will be contextual to its placement on the artboard. Check it out on letsxd.com!
