  1. Reveal Components in Assets – filter to those assets only

    When user selects "reveal components in assets", the panel should filter to those components only within the assets panel.

    As it works now, it highlights all of the components in the asset panel without filtering the other components, and if you have many components, it makes it very difficult to find.

    I realize the components are highlighted in blue, but when the mouse cursors over the components, they're highlighted with a gray/black stroke, making it very very frustrating to find the component you're looking for.

    By filtering only to the component(s) selected, it would be far easier to find.

  2. Custom groups/folders in Assets Panel

    "As a UX designer, I'd like to be able to organize my assets (components, fonts, colors, etc.) into folders or groups so that I can locate them more quickly." #yeswedoagile

  3. Automatically resize Area Text box height when changing width

    When using Responsive Resize, items will adjust according to their parameters but items such as Area text will not take into account their contents. When resizing an Area Text box, XD should provide the option to resize the height in line break increments to accommodate the text.

    An option for width could also be useful.

    The benefit of this is that responsive resize will now responsively adjust all other elements to fit.

  4. Onclick actions trigger States

    It might be usefull to tag component states to actions.

    For example you have a checkbox component and you want to set two states (one checked and one unchecked) and for a preview you want to show the change via onlick.

    For now I have to set a new board and work with strings to show the triggered action.

  6. edit master in source document

    Can't get to the master component when selected 'edit master in source document'. It opens up the source XD document and the progress bar for opening up the document shows complete and freezes but after that it doesn't navigate to the master component. I can't close out of that file either. I can just minimize it but can't close.

  7. Attach/deattach character style, colors from properties

    It is impossible to know if selected text is attached to a pre-defined character style from properties. It would be really helpful if I could see what character style it is using from the properties panel and able to change it right there.

    If you look at figma it does it really good.

  8. open recent in a list instead of a grid so it can show full name and path

    When I go to open recent, the files are displayed in a grid and I cannot see the full name and path of the files.

    I often have a version number at the end of a file and it is impossible to see in the current view. I would love to see my recent files in a list where the full name and path can be displayed.

  9. Better usability on selection of objects from left list. Select layer interferes with "expand" action

    The direct selection of objects/layers/groups/ interferes with the "expand" group/folder/components action.

    XD is missing something as simple as an "chevron" to tell that something is expandable. Nowadays is globally accepted in every app out there (even on illustrator) So why fool us each time we try to select a layer or expand any group or component? Specially, when Name of layer and folder icon are so near in big screens.

    See the comparation.

  10. Grouping Assets in Library

    When working on a large-scale project I find it really hard to keep overview in a library with several dozens of assets/components some of them nested and would really like to organnize them in folders, for example:
    -- Icons
    -- Navigation
    -- Dialogs
    -- Styles
    When working with the principle of atomic design it would also make sense to have seperate folders for
    -- atoms
    -- molecules
    -- organisms
    -- etc.

  11. soft return

    When using paragraph spacing I cannot hold shift + return (soft return) to make a custom line break i.e. fix widows and orphans in paragraph without the paragraph spacing.

    Only a hard return should use paragraph spacing, shift + return should ignore paragraph spacing.

  12. Split Screen within the same file

    Make it possible to split a screen to compare two boards. Also to show two files next to each other.

    And a matching topic overall would be Tabs for multiple open files:

  16. Propper image scale function

    I understand the scale function for images mimics mostly the behavior of an image in css. It would be nice to have the background-image properties of css mirrored in the image tool panel.

    Size (cover, contain, etc.)
    Repeat (x, y, etc.)
    Atattchment (fixed, scroll, etc.)
    Position (left, right, center, center center, etc.)

  17. An option to not include text values in components

    Lets say you have a Button designed as a component but you want it to have different labels in different situations - the problem I have: every time I change something in the primary component, the label always sets back as well. It would be nice if I could set some "Lorem Ipsum" as a placeholder text that can be changed in child components without repercussions.

  18. Arrange tools and their properties in separate Panels

    It should be possible to open tools and properties in separat panels like in every other Adobe Software ...

    So you can - for example - look at layers and components at the same time, having the font properties always open, having a different panel for pathfinder options etc.

  20. Drag to reorder component states

    Components with many states often require some logical clustering in the list, otherwise it may get really confusing.

    I've been "provisioning" many empty states ahear, only to try to control the order of the list, but a simple drag would be way simpler.
