  1. Expand text to outlines

    Because text does not resize the same way objects do, it would be nice to have the option to expand text to outlines the same way Illustrator does. This would turn text into shapes and allow for resizing/shaping.

  3. Resizing elements within components should resize bounds

    Give us the ability to re-size master components after we create them. Currently if you add/change anything outside of the master component initial size, it gets masked off with no way to resize the master (and then all the instances) of the component.

    Hi XD Community -

    Thanks for your feedback!

    With XD’s August release, you could resize/move/add/remove objects inside a component, and the component bounds will automatically adjust to fit those objects.

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

  4. Indication of master component on the layers panel

    There's nothing that I have found that indicates that a component is a master component or not, other than the green outline(instead of blue) only when selected, and right-clicking every component and seeing whether "Edit Master Component" exists or not in the context-menu. These two current indicators are not helpful at a high level because you have to select or click on each individual component instead of being able to see this information at a glance in the component/layers list.

    The layer/component icon changes when the group is open(revealing the layers inside) or closed. This is not a necessary change…

  5. Opacity 0% keyboard shortcut

    It would be awesome to have a keyboard shortcut to quickly apply 0% opacity to elements.

    As an example, I do this often to keep elements on the page and use them as anchor points in prototypes, despite them not being visible. #ghostbutton

    Thanks for your time! :)

  6. Components use Responsive Resize, even when disabled.

    I need to expand the bounds of a component while retaining the size of the content. This is helpful when changing the position of button prompts from inside to outside of the modal space.

    When I try to resize the component it resizes the content inside, even when Responsive Resize is disabled.

  8. Scaling a group should keep objects on pixel grid

    When you resize two objects, even if booth have the same size, they will resize to a value out of the pixel grid, with decimals. (see video attached)

  9. CC Libraries: Increase asset preview size, sort, and custom background

    Please, add functionalities to CC Libraries like:
    - change file preview: large icons view with name, details view with names and other information;
    - possibility to sort the file by name, date, last modified,....;
    - possibility to have a default or customizable background to turn on and off;

    I would like to put on your attention the worst case for me: the large icons view works fine only with coloured icons, not with white icons, because of the white background (that depends on the artboards) doesn't allow to me to see a white icon, and without the names of the…

  10. Set Border Radius Value on a Box

    When I'm creating a button and want to add 4 px rounded corners to it, instead of guessing what 4px looks and dragging the cursor like I would like to be able to enter that the corners should be 4px in the sidebar near where the height and width are set.

  13. Import Photoshop files in XD projects

    Ability to import PSDs into XD projects. Right now we have to Open the PSD, then copy the assets from that new project into the XD project we're working on. It would be a major improvement in workflow if we could simply use the Import feature which is currently limited to JPGs, PNGs, GIFs and SVGs.

    This would remove the 2 extra steps of 1) exporting the PSD into a PNG and 2) copying assets from opened PSD into current project.

  14. Have a Convert Point Tool (To Edit Your Paths)

    It would be very helpful to have a Convert Point Tool (I believe it's called) where you can edit all of your paths that you created with the actual Pen Tool itself. I know XD is supposed to be much more simple than Illustrator is, but there are some things that a person just needs to learn before he gets into a design and this is one of them. Honestly, the only reason I switched from Ai to Xd is that the overall work experience is a lot better but not having features like this one annoys me very much.

    You can already convert an anchor point on a path in XD, from straight to curved, or curved to straight. To do so while drawing a new path with the Pen tool, simply double-click on the last point you created. To convert a point on a path you’ve already created, double-click on the path you want to edit with the Select tool, then double-click on any point on the path to convert it.

  15. Keyboard Shortcut for Eyedropper

    Please add a shortcut for the Eyedropper. From the document listed here: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/keyboard-shortcuts.html there doesn't seem to be one at the moment.

    Thank you.

  16. Linked Character Styles and Colors across documents

    I really liked the new October 2018 update where you have Linked Symbols across multiple files, especially when you made a source file.

    I would like to also have this ability for character styles as I have many websites that all need to share the same UI style guide. I often change my mind about the font size, colour, line spacing and etc.

    If I had this, then making a source file that links with multiple design files will make life so much easier to manage. Without having to go to each file and update...

    Hi Everyone!

    With XD May release, now you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    To learn more about this feature check out:
    letsxd.com/whats-new
    helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/linked-assets.html

    Please give it a try and let’s us know what you think

    Mask with Shape already exists! You can access it using the context menu if you have two objects selected, or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+M.

    For more information: https://twitter.com/elainecchao/status/952982467769548800

    Маска с формой уже существует! Вы можете получить доступ к нему, используя контекстное меню, если у вас есть два объекта, или нажав Shift + Ctrl + M.

  18. Responsive Resizing of Symbols

    The new responsive resize function seems pretty great, but it would take it to the next level for me if I could use it with symbols. This would make form fields and components super easy!

    Hi All,

    We’re excited to announce that with our May release, we have introduced Components (previously known as symbols). Components are design elements with unmatched flexibility that help you create and maintain repeated elements while varying the instances for different contexts and layouts.

    You can create a master component to define a reusable element, such as a button, and you can change any of its properties to customize instances of that element (Size & Layout, Style and Appearance, and Structural overrides). Changes you make to an individual instance are specific to that element, but changes you make to the master propagates to all the instances where the property hasn’t been customized.

    Components now could also be responsively resized with the same powerful capabilities of responsive resize baked in.

    Finally, you could link components across documents to maintain a single source of your components using the Link Assets feature or simply…

  20. Increase the hit area in the asset panel when in list view

    The hit area of an asset is limited to the icon in list view. which is very counter-intuitive please increase the hit area. and I don't think there will be any harm in doing so.
