  1. sharing de

    A better way to create sections for screens like Invision and Zeplin.
    Current way is making it difficult for developers to track down screens.

    • Easy to choose and change color schemes

      I like to offer color theme options, or even to let the user choose their theme.

      Doing this is easy when I work in Wix, for example. I start off choosing a color palatte/scheme. Then after I design, I can easily change the scheme of the whole design by switching between palattes. So, for example, everything that I made light-blue on palatte1 becomes yellow on pallate2.

      It would means that light/dark colors on palatte1 stay light or dark. For example, yellow can become pink, light blue, light gray, etc...but not dark blue or gray.

      • Enable objects to animate before users interact to get their attention

        I'm trying to figure out how to make apps/sites more user friendly for non-tech-savvy folk or first timers to an app/site.

        Each object (buttons, pics, arrows, etc..) could have a set of options to get user's attention before they even touch the screen. This would be very useful for drawing their attention to actions they need to take/choose from.

        For example,
        ..continuously grow and shrink ("breathe"), move or change between colors
        ..fade in when appear on screen
        ..slide in when appear on screen
        ..spin in on appear
        ...fade, slide or spin in after a few seconds on screen

        • Object "personality"

          Some objects always behave the same (when tapped, toggle buttons grow or change color, for example).

          To save a great deal of time having to re-wire (re-program) every object each time we work in a different artboard, it would be great if we could give certain objects "personality", so that no matter which artboard they are in, they always have the same behavior when touched.

          • Create access log for published prototypes

            It would be nice to have a list of people who logged in the prototype and date/time, to be aware of who accessed it.

            I had a security issue in a confidential project and it would be useful to measure the extension of the leak before changing the password.

            • Baseline shift

              I sometimes need to adjust the position of the trademark or register trademark icons in my screens, after changing the size, but I cannot because there is no baseline shift.

              • Save Prototype to desktop for review

                Ok, I have a file that has been lost but I have published on Behance and I have a Published link. It would Great If I could (Save or Download) from Published.
                Or If a client wanted to send feedback but they also wanted to Save and Print a copy they could also Download the file from here too maybe as a PDF or a Folder of images

                  Thanks for your feedback! If I understand this request correctly, you’re actually asking TWO things = 1. to download the original design file from the shared prototype, and 2. to be able to enable customers to download a copy of the shared prototype to their machines. Is that correct?

                • Minimize text box and add "read more"

                  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?

                  • Ability to adjust grid values

                    The gird layout seems to work automatically which isn't correct and not how web design works from a coding point of view.

                    I simply want to have 45px margins on the left and right with a 12 grid column. It's IMPOSSIBLE to do this. It keeps re-adjusting things.

                    Is this suppose to work like this?

                      • File: Open File dialog - Recent files with long filenames get truncated

                        Problem: When selecting File: Open, the dialog box shows my recent documents with trucated filenames making it difficult to see the differences between two versions of the same document.

                        Suggested feature: It would be helpful if the ”Recent” view of the ”Open” dialog box could display the full filenames.

                        Background: I work with a lot of different iterations of the same document so the image preview might be the same or very similar, with long filenames as the only differentiator.

                        Thanks for a great product!

                              Some way to know the original resolution of a bitmap image after it has been imported and/or resized, so you can make an educated decision when creating assets.

                              It’s impossible to know the resolution if you have been handed a file from someone else on your team

                                Allow for multiple interactions on a single elements. Aka, be able to drag multiple wires from a single object.

                                Use case 1: When designing a carousel, a user should be able to swipe on an object left or right and navigate to the next or previous slide.

                                Use case 2: When designing an app with similar interactions to Bumble or Tinder, the test subject should be allowed multiple interactions on the same object. Swipe up, down, left, or right.

                                  This is a small cosmetic suggestion. I find myself posting prototypes for review and new ideas come up so I edit and "Update" the shared link. I keep hitting update, but sometimes I feel like I just hit it! lol I know its a silly one but it would be SUPER NICE if it shows you a "last updated 30 sec ago..." or something like that. This way instead of spending time hitting update multiple times I can focus more on design. Hope others agree and we can make this happen. I know this is a small request, but I…

                                  • Shortcut and UI consistency within CC programs (or atleast Illustrator)

                                    As XD isn't still a mature tool, is obvious that the most of us will jump back and forth from XD to any other design app. One of the sacred rules of usability is consistency between common applications. XD share some frequent used tools with Illustrator, and none of them uses the same key shortcut as Illustrator (, Rectangle: R vs. M; Ellipse: E vs. L; and Artboard A vs. O).

                                    Even common used menu options are placed vertical-left in XD, when all Adobe programs are horizontal-top placed (even Design and Prototype menus on XD are top placed). It’s a…

                                        • Save on cloud - add folder structure

                                          Our team names xd files to link to jira tickets. It'd be very helpful for the cloud to have a folder structure for separating releases into batches.
