  1. "Keep tool selected after use" unchecked

    The one thing that bothers me most about using XD--and it bothers me every time it happens--and it happens dozens of times per XD session--is when you go into Text mode by typing T, and then you click on the artboard and type in your text, and then you go to select another object but--and I've never gotten used to this because literally no other design tool does this by default--instead of selecting the object, it creates a new empty text box. All other design tools that I've used (Sketh, Figma, InVision Studio, Principle) switch back to Select mode when…

    • Overlay positioning below "fold"

      I would like to be able to position an overlay so that it is connected to a specific element regardless of whether that element is below the "fold". For tooltip, dropdown menus, and other interactive elements, overlays are awesome. However, in doing responsive design work for enterprise applications, there are many instances where a dropdown or tooltip will appear below the fold.

      • Double scrolling and Individual Scrolling

        Even if the Fixed Position might help, I think it'd be really helpful to create a feature to scroll 2 different rows in the same page or to scroll an individual element in the page (ex: a carousel).

            • Math Calculations for Multiple Artboards of different sizes

              I was excited to hear that the June 2018 update included Math Calculations which I what I upvoted. I was surprised you said it was completed but I felt like it's not there yet.

              So here's my problem that I still ran into many times.

              I have a responsive website project with more than 100 artboards. If I change the footer height size by -40px, that means I would have to go to each artboard to manually change the height size of the artboard by -40px as well.

              I thought I could select all 100 artboards of different height size…

              • Components & Design systems

                It wode be really good that designers to have capabilities to design with components which can be used separately or combined into a new component because today technologies are relying on this concepts example React, ReactNative ... This feature would give designers the capability to build consistent design systems.

                • Interact with symbols on an artboard

                  If you could have a symbol with an interaction that will replace the instance of that symbol while remaining on the artboard. Almost like it would activate a switch on a variable on a symbol. Maybe this is opening a can of worms, but this would be great with simple toggles.

                  • Character Styles in Inspector

                    I think the styles are really helpful. Would be more convenient if they were accessible at the typeface settings in the inspector though. When I am dealing with type in a design, or parts of a design I am generally looking at the right side of the screen, whereas the left side with all the symbols, colors, etc is more for the whole document.

                    • Option to automatically sync Colors / Character styles with what is in the document

                      Ability to automatically sync document colours + character styles without manually having to click the plus icon.

                      Problem:
                      Unless you remember to constantly update these the document can quickly lead to inconsistencies between what is on the screen and what is in the assets. The more screens and the bigger the project the harder this is to manage and reference what you have used in other places, which is critical for digital design.

                      Solution:
                      If a new colour or font was added to a screen it would appear under assets automatically. If it was deleted from the screen it would…

                            Please make it possible to add a drop shadow to grouped elements. I have this row with 5 white boxes where each box have a 1 px border. I grouped all boxes to add a drop shadow to the shape as its going to act as drop down menu, but it's not possible cause there are no shadow available in the properties panel. The only way to make the shadow properties appear is to double click one of the rows in my group, I'm then able to add shadow to that single element, but that's not what I want. I…

                                          It would be great if we had an option of whatever we want to select group or specific layer via select tool default options. I guess it's much more frequently used to pick just one element instead of picking whole group.

                                          So for me, for example, it would be much easier if by default it would be to just pick one emelement by click, rather then to press CMD all the time i want to change something inside of group.
