  1. Text formatting

    Where are the text formatting tools present on Photoshop and illustrator ?
    - underline
    - all in capital
    - small capital
    - superior/exponent
    - inferior/sign
    - barred

    Even making a copy / paste formatting of the text isn't preserved.

    Waiting for an answer from Adobe XD Team

    Best regards

  3. Paste above selected layer

    Currently, if you paste a new object, it is pasted on top of all other layers, even if you have another layer selected.
    This differs how it is handled in other programs (such as Sketch or even Adobe's own), where when you have a specific layer selected, all pasted elements will be pasted above the selected layer and not as the top-most layer.

    It would be nice if this could be added as it makes pasting layers way more efficient, since you dont have to go to the layers panel afterwards to reorder the pasted contents.

  4. 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 the response. You should be able to create a public prototype that does not require a login (equivalent of “anyone who has the link can view”), AND you can create a password-protected link that does not require a CC account (“anyone who has the link + the password can view”).

    If you create a public prototype, it is NOT searchable, but similar to Google’s “anyone with the link can view,” if someone else gets a copy of the URL, they can open it to view. That’s likely why you were told that it was publicly accessible – it’s technically true, and we need to ensure you know that it’s very hard to find due to our long URLs, but not impossible to do so.

    Hope that helps!

  5. Use multiple instances of the same swatches

    It would be great to add multiple instances of the same color to the Color asset library using labels to differentiate each instance. The same color might be used across multiple components and UI elements across the document, sometimes its necessary to only tweak just one instance of the color and not make a global change.

    Thanks for your feedback! If you need to make a local change and unlink something from a color from the asset library, select the object and open the color picker in the property inspector on the right hand side. The changes there won’t reflect across your canvas, only on the individual object. Hope that helps!

  6. Restart animation in preview mode

    I'd like to be able to restart an animation without leaving Preview mode.

  7. Resize layer in mask

    Masks are completely broken and pretty useless in XD currently. You can't reorder layers, use clipping masks, or even resize a layer inside a mask. Once you create a mask group, it's basically a locked in and un-editable layer causing lots of frustration and confusion.

  11. Comment archive

    Could you implement a link called 'Solved', that after clicked it that comment go to a archive list comments. It's because I want to control what I did and what I have as a suggestion (comments).

  13. Home Screen

    The Home Screen really is of little use if it's not customisable..

    * Why is "Explore the basics." present after extensive use? Should it not be dismissible?
    * The preset list does not remember the last choice. If I am constantly selecting iPone 6 Plus, why does it always fallback to iPhone X?
    * The same goes for Custom Size. If you cant save presets, at least maybe it could remember the last value?
    * Under "Your Work" why is there no Creative Cloud Files?
    * Should be able to drag a folder there for quick access to your Projects.

  14. Common Interactions in digital products

    Simple interactions which are commonplace in almost all apps / digital products yet cannot be communicated through current design tools.
    Here’s a brief list:

    Hovering a button
    Focusing an input
    Checking a checkbox
    Tabbed content
    Scroll areas
    Tab index for focused states
    Keyboard shortcuts

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you have individual suggestions separated out into different tickets. The good news is most of these are already in the system and are waiting for your upvote. For instance:

    Unfortunately, XD is only for prototyping and not for generating actual websites. If you’re interested in generating websites, you should upvote this story:

  18. Provide link to official iOS Kit for Windows

    There is no official iOS Kit available on Windows. The 'Get UI Kits' link takes me to the Apple Design Resources page, and they have a .dmg file for download, that doesn't work on Windows.

    This is already available in the product! Your designer can turn on a layout grid and publish the design spec. Once you open the design spec, click on the artboard and look at the property inspector on the right. There should be a “layout grid” option that will give you the grid and give you the option of whether or not to turn it on. Hope that helps!

  20. Simply make XD full Adobe CC ecosystem friendly...

    Well... after trying many times XD and giving up frustrated after every try, I’ve reached some thoughts about why its still unusable for my “particular” user experience:

    1. I’ve been doing user interface mock-ups with Illustrator for at least a decade, so my skills are focused on be productive with it and import image assets from Photoshop when needed. Then, I haven’t time to face a learn curve on a new design tool. I want to keep using Illustrator.

    2. Being an Adobe CC long time user, I’ve grown with a deep understanding of Adobe CC ecosystem. Each program cooperates…
