    • 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.

      • 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.

              Jonathan’s comment: Hi Rene, if you copy paste objects or the entire artboard in prototype mode, we do copy the interactions as well. I’m sorry this is not working for you.

              Can you confirm if this doesn’t work in prototype mode? Please help me with your XD version and Operating System version.

            • Hi can you please add a lock transform to objects. So that if I want to re-scale an entire group everything would scale uniformly.

              • Select multiple Artboards, click batch export once

                Selecting multiple Artboards and then clicking batch export button of one item, currently only selects that item for the export, so I have to click through every single one of them I want to be exported. Please add a feature where clicking that button applies for all selected Artboards.

                • Smart objects for XD

                  Hi! I would love if you could create a parent or a smart object inside XD so that you not need to apply small changes to all of your artboards.

                  • Export working mockups to presentation

                    The option of being able to export a working version of the mocked up product to place in powerpoint or other presentation document. It would be easier to structure a presentation rather than talking over a recording of the mocked up product.

                    • Extrusion via Touchpoints

                      The possibility to extrude
                      Currently, I can add and move more handle points by double-clicking on a shape. I would like to extend this feature to surface extrusion. Attached Video for better understanding.

                      Example:
                      In practice, a column and a horizontal menu will be built.

                      Current work steps:
                      Create 2 objects for the column and for the menu above.

                      Suggestion for improvement:
                      I can drag the area between two touch points. In other words, a third point appears as the center point and over this point I drag the shape in the desired direction. So just like I can edit…

                      • Preserve corner radius when resizing

                        If I'm drawing a rectangle and setting a corner radius of X, and need to resize that rectangle's width, I'd like to just be able to push one side without having the other side's corner radius "squashing" up.

                        Currently it's possible to do so by editing vector points and just selecting the left or right-side point group, but it wastes a bit of time. Thanks :)

                          • select elements only within a highlighted area, through all groups

                            The selection will "auto-select" a shape when I hover over it, however I want to select elements within that shape and not the containing shape as well.

                            Use the "shift" key or equivalent to only select elements are completely within the selection area and not items below the mouse cursor, when I start the selection.

                                Please let us know how you would like XD’s existing Grid snapping feature to be different.

                                Or if you’re having trouble just finding the Grid feature in XD, please let us know where you’d expect to find it in the UI.

                                A client is requesting to have assets in Illustrator format. Basically, I want to be able to export from XD as an Illustrator file with the options to save images as linked or embedded. This is similar to the SVG export option, except that SVG I think has a file size limit of about 15 MB. When I export as an SVG at a large size, XD fails. Exporting as Illustrator with supported text boxes (not breaking them into individual text lines and not outlining the text either. Just easy and editable from XD to Illustrator. XD export as SVG…

                                  Hi,

                                  I would like to understand more about the limitation of the export as SVG as i am not aware of any limit. Are you talking about a limit in the application that consumes the SVG, like a browser or Illustrator?

                                  In general, if you choose to export with embedded images, the size of SVG will become large and it will be hard to process it in other application.

                                  Cheers,
                                  M.

                                    Can you tell us more about how you’d like this to work? Do you want XD to export image assets and insert them directly into the correct folders/filenames in an existing Xcode project? Or do you want XD to generate Objective-C / Swift code to create a brand new Xcode project?

                                  • Direct selection tool - adjust points in multiple shapes at once

                                    I need direct selection tool to adjust groups this way:
                                    1. I created rectangle and placed icon inside with 10px offset from right side.
                                    2. Grouping rectangle with icon.
                                    3. Now I want to resize this group and save 10px offset, but this offset changes proportionally.

                                    I can easily do this in Ai using Direct Selection tool. So, add Direct Selection tool, please.

                                      You can direct select elements by holding CMD when clicking on items that are part of groups. Marquee selecting anchor points is landing very soon, so that you could select parts of your rectangle. Do you expect a different behavior? Did I understand your request right? Thanks for your feedback.

                                    • Allow Noun Project App to work with XD

                                      When dragging icons from Noun Project App into XD there is an issue with XD not recognizing SVG's. The SVG icon is only recognized as a png element? When doing the same in other programs (illustrator or photoshop) or in your competition Sketch this is not a problem! Currently, the workaround is to drag from noun project into Illustrator and then copy into XD but obviously annoying.

                                      • Device Frames

                                        My idea is to have a real looking or clay mockup like device frame when viewing prototypes like Invision studio is planning to do!

                                        • Shape builder

                                          It would be great if XD had a shape builder like Illustrator to more easily build more complex shapes. This would allow me to stay within just one application instead of having to use multiple applications. The standard boolean operators just don't cut it.
