  1. On hover tooltip

    On Hover to provide tooltip or pop-over,
    As of now you guys have provided the On hover component/button styling. But we need to add tooltips at times or a mini popover on hover which will be helpful.

  2. Stretch grid/columns like in Figma

    In Figma I can set margins and gutters and then let the columns stretch over whatever the remaining amount of pixels is. Super easy to work with. Would be a great feature to add to XD :)

    Thanks for your feedback! You can actually already do this – just set your margins and gutters in layout grid, and the columns will recalculate. The only caveat is that our columns are pixel-snapped, which means that you can’t have fractional columns. (Instead, we’ll add the remainder to the margin.) Given this information, can you clarify what you’d like changed about the existing layout grid system?

  3. Improve search results to locate found item/artboard on pasteboard

    If I'm using the find/search feature to find an artboard, or to find some text on an artboard, it would be great if the search results allowed me to go straight to that found item and also to locate the artboard on the pasteboard. It's a partcilar issue when I have files with a large number of artboards.

    Currently, I get the search results, and whilst I can click and edit the properties of found items in the results, locating the item or even the artboard on which it is contained can be tricky. Some sort of 'Go to' context…

  5. Text selection highlight color on Windows should invert

    When selecting text (via drag selection or double clicking a word), it will display the blue highlight boundary. There are some UI kits that use this blue as part of their wireframing palette making it impossible to see the text highlight when you have text on top of this color.

    Ideally, the selection highlight should just invert the color underneath it so you can always see the boundary.

  6. Object alignment not working!

    When trying to align objects, object won't align to the same edge as something else, Example box and a line dont align for half pixel!

    When will this issue be fixed? This same bug is found from Bugs section but it shows there that it is resolved even it is not!

  7. Update Component Preview in Assets Panel when Master Component is edited

    Currently, after creating a component, there is a preview image of that component in the assets panel. But if you make a change to that master component (for example, changing a green object to red) the preview in the assets panel does not update. So even though I now want this component to be a red object, it becomes very hard to find it in the assets panel, at a glance because it is still green in the preview image.

  8. Delete non used component

    Sometimes I no longer use a component I have made, but it continues to show in my components list making it so long.
    It would be great if we have an option to exclude these non used components. Or, maybe a tag / icon showing it.

    Sherif has a response for you: Alan,

    Today in XD, you could select any layer inside the component and add a shadow to it, and it render outside the component bounding box. Does that solve your use case? if not, could you please add more detail into what you’re trying to achieve.

  11. INTUITIVE / Gesture ALIGN

    Move asn object to a "snap grid" then move to another "snap grid" then the object auto aligns to the behaviour and no the command. becoming more of a gesture to align. Zoomed out I could move an object to the boundaries of where I want it to align and it would centre to the snap boundaries.

  12. Opacity in master component

    I would like to see opacity value added to the component functionality, so that if I adjust the opacity in a master component, all the child components will have the same opacity value.

    It would be great to be able to create character style sets that can be used in e.g. UI kits and Design Specs for developers

    Styleset for Desktop, Tablet and Mobile.

  14. Unlinking components

    In certain scenarios, I would like to unlink my components from other files, eg. if i imported the wrong components.

    Right now there seems to be no way of unlinking your components, other than creating a new file and manually delete the one you already have.

    Can you explain a little more how you would imagine this working? It seems like you could move a master component into another document if you copied/pasted/converted to component, then shared the new document’s assets panel into your original document and then swap the symbol.

  16. Define fonts family for a project or for an artboard

    It would be great to define font families that will be used in a project by adding them to the artboard property panel.
    This would help to
    - limit numbers of font used in a webdesign
    - change the font of a whole project

    - maintain character styles easyly
    - avoid to miss some font replacement

  17. Allow border or fill color to be focused so I can use saved colors from components to apply to fill OR border

    Similar to the 'Color' tool panel from AI.

    This can/should also incorporate other features like seeing the hex or color build information of the fill or outline without having to click into a secondary panel.

    Tie in key commands like 'x' for swapping the focus from outline to fill, 'd' for resetting to base black/white, etc.

  20. swapping a nested component should change name in layers

    When I have a component like a card with a button in it (button is a nested component) and I drag a different button in to swap it out, the card component should update the original button name with the new name in the layers panel.
