  1. I want the seperate prototype links back

    I thinks its very annoying that you now force us to present the design specs and prototype in the same share cause now it's impossible to iterate these two documents separately. Most of the times my design specs and my prototypes are different iterations and must be shared separately. Often we iterate different prototypes and we send design specs for just sections of the design, the section that has been accepted for release. With the new setup it's impossible to continuous this strategy and it messes things up. Please give us back the opportunity to share ONE thing at the…

  2. Update Component Preview in Assets Panel when Master Component is edited

    Currently, after creating a component, there is a preview image of that component in the assets panel. But if you make a change to that master component (for example, changing a green object to red) the preview in the assets panel does not update. So even though I now want this component to be a red object, it becomes very hard to find it in the assets panel, at a glance because it is still green in the preview image.

  3. Function to link multiple XD files so that multiple products can link

    I want a function that allows multiple XD files to work together. This is a viewpoint for a "system" in which multiple products operate in conjunction.
    Necessary for designing the linkage between a smartphone and a watch.
    This perspective should become very important in a few years.

    It is not that multiple users operate XD at the same time.

    Can you explain a little more how you would imagine this working? It seems like you could move a master component into another document if you copied/pasted/converted to component, then shared the new document’s assets panel into your original document and then swap the symbol.

  5. Text selection highlight color on Windows should invert

    When selecting text (via drag selection or double clicking a word), it will display the blue highlight boundary. There are some UI kits that use this blue as part of their wireframing palette making it impossible to see the text highlight when you have text on top of this color.

    Ideally, the selection highlight should just invert the color underneath it so you can always see the boundary.

  7. Support RSS Library

    As many designers will compare AdobeXD features with Sketch, and many Sketch Library use RSS feed to keep update their own librairies with users. I think it's a mandatory for BIG adoption by designers and companies to support RSS feeds like Sketch do.

    Take a look :

    As well as hosting your Libraries on Sketch Cloud, you can also host your Library file on any online server, publish an RSS that points to it, and have Sketch subscribe to the RSS to get updates when the Library is updated. To do that, just use a link in this form: sketch://add-library?url=URLEncodedPathToRSS

  8. Define fonts family for a project or for an artboard

    It would be great to define font families that will be used in a project by adding them to the artboard property panel.
    This would help to
    - limit numbers of font used in a webdesign
    - change the font of a whole project
    - maintain character styles easyly
    - avoid to miss some font replacement

  9. Web Export Links for interactive response

    Need a tutorial on web exporting to clearly demonstrate how links need to be inserted in the files to ensure the project remains interactive once converted to html.

  10. 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?

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. save for web feature like photoshop for exporting assets

    When I export assets from xd, it generally takes more space. And I can't directly import files from xd to photoshop, so first I have to import into illustrator and then to photoshop and then I can use save for web to optimize my assets.
    So please incorporate a feature so that I can directly export assets from xd with compression.

  15. Modify the export scale

    We work sometimes on different resolution. And one design can be used for a lot of product. As AdobeXD are built with Design System in mind, it could be great to have the ability to modify the scale of an element when we want to export it.

    Can you tell us a little more about what you’re looking for? We currently support multiple screen sizes when you export, either for local asset export or for sharing when you publish a design spec (e.g. 1x 2x 3x for iOS, 1x and 2x for web, etc.)

  16. Keyboard prtotype shortcut triggers

    An extra feature for the keyboard triggers to be able to facilitate shortcut mode as well.

    The feature would be able to set up 2-3 buttons as a trigger to show a new overlay or artboard. (example: Command+K, Command+Space bar or Command+Shift+E).

    I just reviewed, and it looks like we support combination keyboard shortcuts already. There are some that the operating system will eat, though, so you might not be able to assign all of them. Are there specific keyboard shortcuts you can’t set?

  17. Open XD-File in Photoshop for further advanced work

    When designing a banner for a youtube channel or facebook-site with cover image … I'd like to export my images in the right size, but the export from XD to JPG/PNG is poor (color-mistakes no attachment of color profiles) OR if Iäd like to make advanced work (filters/masks etc.) I don't like to rebuild my design in Photoshop. An export from XD to Photoshop 8with all layers) would be very helpful.

  18. Delete non used component

    Sometimes I no longer use a component I have made, but it continues to show in my components list making it so long.
    It would be great if we have an option to exclude these non used components. Or, maybe a tag / icon showing it.

  20. add shadow to components

    Sherif has a response for you: Alan,

    Today in XD, you could select any layer inside the component and add a shadow to it, and it render outside the component bounding box. Does that solve your use case? if not, could you please add more detail into what you’re trying to achieve.
