  1. Version Control - store history/timeline of revisions

    It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

    • Scale/resize symbols individually

      I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

      Please let us scale the symbols

        • Simpler way to Crop Photos

          There should really be a tool to crop photos by selection (maybe by double clicking on it and using the control points) but it took me a while just to figure out that i have to mask by shape just to crop a photo.

            We’ve begun working on an easier way to crop your images without using an image mask and will be releasing this in an upcoming release!

                • Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

                  Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

                  • Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

                    It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

                    • Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)

                      This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.

                        Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

                        In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

                        If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

                        -Elaine

                      • Design with Data

                        I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

                        I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.
