  1. I want to be able to adjust the height of the text box

    Now the height of the text box of the text cannot be changed. I hope that we can provide us with the value of the text box and change the fixed height of the text box.

  3. Giver greater contrast to text edit background color

    It's very hard to tell when text is in edit mode on the canvas.. there isn't enough contrast like there is when placed on a white background like an artboard

  4. Refresh button on Prototype view

    There should be a button on prototype view window where we can just refresh our prototype instead of closing and playing the prototype again. An example of this exists in Protopie prototype window.

  5. Make Global Symbol to Local Symbol

    Currently, all the symbols are by default link to the source document, once we unlink the symbol it is no longer symbol. It would be great if we are able to unlink the from the source document yet keep it as a common symbol with the same file.

  6. link font to color asset

    Link the font color to a specific color in the asset library so if you change that color it will affect the character style throughout

  7. Recent update

    Adobe has decided to update the software without warning to end-user like myself. Suddenly, all files aren't being able to view by clients on the app any longer. It was a nightmare while I am on vacation and I had to deal with the problem while internet connect is not working as fast as normal. Please in the future if you guys decided to update anything at least make the experience seamless not as troublesome as this time around. Who on earth has the time to sit there to sync all files again and dealing with multiple emails from clients…

    Thanks for your feedback. Andrew shared a comment with you a couple of days ago: “Apologies for the frustration that the changed caused for you here – we will continue to look for ways to improve communication when there are changes to existing workflows in the product.”

  8. Scrollbar displays in Preview recording

    I noticed something in the new XD update. when I record a design that entails a scrollable screen, the scrolling bar on the side still shows up in the screen capture

  10. Provide German language tutorials

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials und Hilfe wäre eine Sache!

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials und Hilfe wäre eine Sache!
    Das ist fast wichtiger wie die Oberfläche von XD.

    Mit meinem Schulenglisch komme ich soweit ganz gut rum aber um eine Software mit deutscher Oberfläche" und englischer Hilfe u. Tutorials zu verstehen" die auch noch relativ NEU ist reicht es bei mir nicht aus.

    Die englische Fachterminologie für eine Software in deutscher Sprache macht mich fertig:-(

    Und lasst diese englischsprachen Newsletter an deutsche User. Bei euren Milliardengewinnen schafft ihr es sicher auch noch ein paar mehr Übersetzer zu bezahlen.

    Ihr müsst euch nach den Kunden richten…

    Danke für Dein Feedback und den guten Vorschlag hinsichtlich deutschsprachiger Newsletter zu Spezialthemen wie benannt. Letzteren habe ich an das entsprechende Marketingteam in Deutschland weitergegeben – unsere UserVoice Instanz wird ja primär vom XD Produktteam genutzt.

    XD Tutorials und die vollständige XD Hilfe ist allerdings bereits seit Jahren verfügbar!

    Du gelangst direkt aus XD heraus zu den deutschen Hilfeseiten (vorausgesetzt Du nutzt XD auf Deutsch, was ich hier annehme), schau mal im Menü “Hilfe” unter “Training & Support” nach. Das leitet Dich auf https://helpx.adobe.com/de/support/xd.html, und das ist der vollständige englische Inhalt, auf deutsch.

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials findest Du unter https://helpx.adobe.com/de/xd/tutorials.html. Nicht alle Videos sind immer synchronisert, aber sollte das nicht der Fall sein gibt es mindestens deutsche Untertitel.

    Hoffe das hilft! Lass uns wissen wenn es noch etwas hinzuzufügen gibt.

  11. Let us deside where to install it

    UX software,

    that give me a very first awfull experience just at installation, as it decide to install itself on the clutered C: drive while I have lot of free space on others drive.

    p.s.
    and while I am here, seriously, on desktop, why are you giving the advise of using space + LMB to navigate; and not giving the alternate way as it is here: the middle mouse button.

    You can already set the install location of all of your Creative Cloud apps through the Creative Cloud desktop application. From the CC Desktop App, click on the Gear > Preferences > Creative Cloud and click on the drop-down underneath “Install Location.” As this is not an XD-specific request, I’m marking this as not a feature request.

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  12. There is no top option bar on the screen!

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Our design for Windows 10 follows UWP design guidelines, which removes the top menu bar. All of the file commands that you’re used to are underneath the burger menu in the upper left-hand corner. All of the object commands, however, are in the context menu, which you can find by right clicking on an object or group.

    Hope that helps!

    Elaine

  13. I can't delete a color after adding

    After add a color, I can't delete it. I have tried the right mouse button and remove, for example (just tried as a option).
    I have added a wrong color on my color palette and I want to delete it. How I can do that?!
    Thank you

  14. Keep RAW support for windows 8

    I understand you have stopped updates for Windows 8 computers. While I absolutely hate this, the worst part is I can't open up RAW files from my new EOS R since you have tied RAW support to new updates!!!

    This has essentially rendered Lightroom/photoshop useless and I'm paying $50 a month for software with 0 support.

    I still think that you should either get Lightroom 8 working or offer an upgrade to win 10 (costs $150/computer) but at minimum, keep RAW support going so your creators can keep working!!!

    I now have to spend $150/computer to update them, do hours…

  15. Add menu for cycle through windows

    I think we should have a cycle through windows option under Window menu in the top. When I open multiple Adobe XD files, I can't cycle through the windows with any keyboard shortcut. I have to hold the mouse left key on the Adobe XD icon from the dock that wastes time for me every time.

  16. Can you make XD daily challenges incorporate some coding?

    I am participating in trial 2-week with www.Thinkful.com community which has a great background in coding and provides structured feedback from assignment mentors. Unfortunately, you will have to pay to complete the bootcamp but I wish XD daily has a little bit of this focus. They also have online chats throughout the day on how to think like a data scientist.

  17. Asset Search

    Asset search would be extreamly useful. Especially when using an icon library for example.

  18. So let me get this straight admins of this site!

    I post a new request for a critical issue to be fixed specifying exactly what we need, and guess what :) It gets merged with a request that has been "UNDER REVEW" for more than 2 years! Just a polite way of saying we don't wanna bother ourselves with this :)

    Thanks for reaching out again. Please note that what we’re trying to do is aggregate feedback to see how many people are interested in a feature. In fact, adding to a feature that is “under consideration” is MUCH better than sitting as a request with only one vote. We’ve been working on many of our top 10 issues over these past two years, and the features under consideration are closer to the feature hopper than others. Hope that helps!

  19. How to scale an SVG relative to its canvas size with the command line

    Recently, i am facing a crazy problem. I'm trying to create a pipeline for rendering my vector graphics. Basically, I am trying to upscale the vector by 16 times, rasterize it, then downscale to supersample it back down to native resolution, which is based on the SVG's canvas.

    I'm trying to do this with ImageMagick but from what I have read it isn't possible because you have to explicitly tell ImageMagick the canvas size by pixels, and not by a percentage/multiplying.

    I use Adobe Illustrator 22.1 64-bit to create my SVG's, and ImageMagick 7.0.7-25 Q16 x64.

    Thanks & Regards
