  1. More supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes

    Please provide more supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes. I think that this is a fantastic feature.

    • CONVERT TO CODE

      We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.

        Hi, all-

        “Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.

      • Allow to save copy of XD file on the computer automatically in addition to Cloud Documents

        With the new version of XD, you now have 2 options to Save: Cloud Documents, Your Computer...

        Say I've saved a file to Cloud Documents. If I want to work on this file offline, I have to plan ahead to save this file to my computer too; that's double the clicks. And I have to remember which file is the most up-to-date to replace the old one, which is not good user experience in terms of human memory. Can we have an option to automatically save a copy to our computers with Automatic Sync?

        While I'm at it, can I…

          What we’re thinking about right now is to have a representation of the file, but not the file itself. To be a lot less technical, it would look like an .xd document, but would be a link to the cloud document instead. So you could create one wherever you’d like (like into a folder with the rest of your assets), but it would always go to the document in the cloud instead of being a local file you’d have to maintain.

          If so, I can update the feature request to be more about having these links you can save to your local file system than about saving a copy of it locally.

        • Prototype comments link to location in design

          It would be nice if you clicked on a comment from a prototype that you go to the location the comment is attached to in the design. Mostly useful wen you have large designs with many comments.

          • Transfer ownership of published "design specs with comments"

            We have an agency that is using Adobe XD just for our project. They will not renew their Adobe CC license after this project. The ongoing project has its design specs published and contain rich amount of comments and conversations.

            We would require this information to be transferred to us after the agency has completed the project and exited. This is important from a retrospective and legal standpoint.

            However Adobe XD does not have this feature yet. We also need a way for internal designers who are leaving the company to transfer the published specs and prototypes to someone else…

            • Dim background (set tint + alpha) behind overlay

              Love the new overlays feature! As an extended feature it would be great if you could choose what should happen to the background when the overlay appears. For example being able to dim the background by choosing a color and opacity.

              This would help with darkening the background for modals etc.

              • Keyboard triggered transitions: 508 Compliance for Navigating Shared Prototypes without a mouse.

                To meet 508 compliance standards for our company internal users/editors/designers must be able to navigate the UI graphics without a mouse. This means using tab, enter, arrows, or whatever. It would be helpful to set multiple options for transitions so a user can tap or tab. This would mean that symbols on an artboard that are wired to another artboard can be selected without a mouse by hitting tab and enter. Symbols could be ordered as well within an artboard (similar to the "home" button) so they are selected by "tab" in a specific order.

                • 100% Interactive PDF Prototype

                  In packaging design, you can generate a 360° degree interactive pdf were the client can move the packaging around to look at it from every angle.

                  Imagine being able to build a pdf presentation (InDesign etc.) and placing 100% Interactives Prototypes on to the slides. (With the device around it or just the screen size).

                  Ps: I hope responsive prototypes will be available before the end of 2019 #setAdeadlineAndMakeIt.

                  • Guest Log-In (no log-in) for reviewers only

                    Adobe keeps saying this issue is resolved. It's not. Please allow an Adobe XD creator to share an XD preview without the reviewer (client) having to have an Adobe account or log in. Should be as simple as click the link for a preview. And they should be private. (password optional). Same as Google Drive sharing "Anyone with link can view".

                      Thanks for contacting us! When you click on Share > “Share for Review,” you should be able to see a screen that publishes a public view that does not require a login to view. (You should see four checkmarks: Allow Comments, Open in Full Screen, Show Hotspot, Hints, and Require Password.) Your clients can sign in as a guest to comment – no password required, just a CAPTCHA.

                      If you create a private link, your users will need an Adobe ID to sign in.

                      That being said, there’s also a chance that if you’re in a managed enterprise, your admin could have turned this option off and required you to use invitations instead of creating public links. Is there a possibility that might have happened?

                    • Allow downloading images from web viewer

                      Allow easy downloading of images from the web view. It looks like the app deliberately obfuscates this ability (right click -> download image is not possible in browser).
                      Seeing as there is no built in version control or reference ID for version of images, downloading images is necessary to take snapshots of progress.

                      • Export artboard as high quality image(s)

                        This was previously suggested but it seemed like it needed to be reposted (if not, feel free to delete this request).

                        Outside of maybe SVG for obviously (?) reasons, the exported file looks pixelated. The exports do not look presentable--I've been better off with screenshots but screenshots are screenshots. I would love if this request gets a second look.

                          • Access Shared for Review documents with XD mobile apps

                            Currently if you share a document using the Share for Review function the receiver can only see this document on a web browser. This has limitations, both on viewing experience (browser chrome gets in the way) and performance.

                            It would be great if the prototype could be seen directly inside the mobile XD apps instead, under the Shared with You section.

                              Message from Arun:

                              While I see your point about browser chrome still present when viewing a prototype on mobile web browser, I am not sure I understood the issue with performance.

                              Can you elaborate more on why you felt the performance of viewing prototypes on mobile web is slower? Any specific examples that you can share will help us dig into this further and improve the experience.

                              On the viewing experience as well, we have recently made some improvements where-in maximum real estate is now used to show the prototype in its glory. Browser chrome on most browsers go away after some time allowing you to see the full height prototype. Please give this a try and let us know your feedback. I am eager to hear more from you.

                            • Drag Reverse to Previous Artboard

                              The drag is only limited by its feature to create the transitions to the next screen. BUT if we want to go back to the previous artboard with a reverse drag, you can't.

                              The problem is if we want to show you can drag to back to the previous artboard screen, you have to create a new screen. So a carousel that has 3 artboards, now you have to create at least 6 artboards.

                              This suggestion of mine is to reduce the number of screens that take up Adobe XD's limited pasteboard and reduce the workload to prototype these interactions.

                              • Position Overlay Relative To Object

                                Requesting the ability to position an overlay relative to another object rather than the artboard. If you move the anchored object, so does the overlay.

                                If you position an overlay to align with an object, and then later that object moves, now you need to remember to also move the overlay's position.

                                    If you are using android device sharing on web with fixed positioned bottom menu app is impossible. Android nav bar covers the whole bottom menu and it is useless...

                                      This is expected behavior, as the Android browser will add the overlay without our control. You can either accommodate for this by shortening your viewport OR by using the Adobe XD application to load your document, which will show in full screen. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

                                      I'm looking for a easy way to create a expandable text box with the click of a button (e.g read more)

                                      This is often seen in app stores and in news articles that that are behind a pay wall.
                                      With the text box minimized you should be able the see the content below (screenshots etc) but when you expand the content should be moved further down. Maybe this is already possible but I can't find the feature either in the software or in a tutorial. Of course I can build this my own with animations, but shouldn't there be a…

                                        Thanks for your feedback. Right now, the way to do this is using auto-animate, which will enable you to move other objects out of the way. I’m guessing you’re looking for a tool that will enable you to automatically reflow the rest of your page when you expand a section, is that right?

                                        • Nudging with option

                                          Make it possible to move an object with the arrow keys when option/alt is pressed. Right now you have to release the key in order to move it but then you don't always see the pixel distances.
