  1. Scale all components styles.

    I have animated icons with auto animate and wish to use them in two sizes: Small size in the menu and big size in the features page.
    When I scale up or down the component it only scale that one specific state. We need it a way to scale all states so we can have a few less components. and a fast workflow.

  2. Expandable library panel

    Dear Adobe, why isn't the XD library panel expandable like it is in the other Adobe apps? I wanna be able to drag it out in height so I don't get a tiny viewport. When a library is large it takes forever to scroll that tiiiiny scrollbar down to the assets that are out of sight. Why design the library panel different to what it is in all the other CC apps? Doesn't make sense.

  3. library

    When opening a CC-Library in XD, I can't edit the elements inside the library. In other CC-Tools like Photoshop there is a edit-command in the context menu of every item. That's missing in XD, or is there another workflow for editing library-elements?

  4. "Make component of each selection" by selecting several objects

    Dear XD Team,

    Often we build up a master file as a design grid system and this file for example we include all the icons. If we have lets say 30 icons, then we have to click and create a component one by one.

    What we are missing is a "Make component of each selection" feature.

    If that would be in the next update – that would be amazing!

    Thanks a lot!

    Regards,
    Serkan

  5. More effects on shapes

    Although there are a lot of requests for new features, I have some that almost every designer would wish to see in Adobe XD. Being a huge fan of Adobe XD, I would wish that it would include more effects that could be applied to shapes such as inner shadow and warping effect.

  8. Show image appearance setting while hovering over drop down - Like Photoshop

    - When selecting image appearance mode - (i.e Normal, Darken, Multiply e.c.t) have the image update when hovering over the menu like in photoshop.

    - Rather than having no preview and having to blindly select before viewing how it would look. then undoing over and over

  9. レスポンシブサイズ変更について

    レスポンシブサイズ変更のボタンはデフォルトで外してもらいたいです。

    レスポンシブデザインをおこなうときはとても便利ですが、
    画像やiconの縮尺を変える時も反応してしまい
    とても不便です。

    または、オフにするショートカットを作成して欲しいです。

  10. Improvements needed in ASSETS panel for 'Character Styles' naming

    First of all thanks for the latests updates in November – they are great 🙌

    My team often struggles to find the needed character style in the assets panel. In the 'List View' you can give the fonts certain names; eg: H2 Titles 50/60 px.
    image: List View

    When we switch to the 'Grid View' (which portrays the components larger and thus more useful in that case), then the given name unfortunately disappears and only the font names are visible, which we can do very little with.
    image: Grid View

    It would be great to get this issue improved in…

  11. ability to choose how artboard layers are displayed (see all or just focus state)

    It would be great for the user to be able to choose how they want to view their layers—like sketch or like current XD. Let the user decided which works best for them. I like seeing everything, not just the artboard I am on.

  12. Improved Component State Performance

    Component states are awesome, but right now the size increase for a complex component is not scalable. After doing some testing, components appear to increase their size proportionally to the number of states.

    For example if I have a Default state, create a new state and move the components, say in a mask, to do an animation the size has now doubled. Then if I copy that to a new artboard, it doubles again, because both states get carried around. Therefore what originally would have been a master with an instance in 2 separate artboards with size 2X is now…

  13. change behavior of expanding group contents when group is hidden while sub-layer is selected

    When you have a layer within a group selected, then collapse the group and hide it, the group expands again.

    I understand the thought behind this would be to always show the selected layer in an expanded hierarchy, but during my workflow it seems very counter-intuitive and different from the way I have been accustomed to expect adobe products to behave.

    I would like to see this changed so when I have a layer selected within a group and I collapse the group and then hide it, the group stays collapsed with the group becoming the main selection instead of…

  15. Detach/float the layer panel

    I want to be able to undock the layer manager from the main Adobe XD window like in Photoshop etc. That way i can have Adobe XD on one monitor and the layer manager on the other one.
    This would increase the productivity by a lot, because you dont have to switch between the components and layers, but can have them both open at once.

  16. [Windows] Allow CC Libraries Panel to be moved outside the Workspace, like it did before

    The functionality added to libraries with groups is awesome! But why did you decide it was better to trap the panel within the bounds of the window? Now it's constantly in the way... I can't dock it and I can't move it outside the workspace... like I can with every other Adobe development software. I can't even adjust the size to see more or less assets at a time so it takes up less space.

  17. Allow options to default color names in Assets to RGB, HSL, etc

    Now the colors in Assets are forced to have a hex code as the default name.

    Please:

    1. allow options to change default naming to RGB, HSL, or others.
    2. automatically convert the existing color names in the assets to the same type of color code, if they haven't been edited.

  18. New state feature doesn't sync when assets updated

    I have a separated file for all assets and my actual project, so what I usually do is call the assets file from clouds (this is so my other team member able to use the same assets when they working on other pages).

    So with the new state feature where I can add hover and other states to my buttons, I change some of my buttons in the master assets file (the one i save on clouds) and then I click update assets on my project file.

    The default state is updated but not the other states (hover, inactive, etc..)…

  19. Allow Component States in repeat grid

    Let's say we want to add a Radio Group and use our Design System Radio Button Component for that. Currently it's not possible to set one of the components to the selected state.

    As a workaround we can create the list with the repeat grid, then ungroup it and change the desired item. But that can't be how it's intended to work.

    ps: I feel bad for lodging a Feature Request days after you released such a great feature. It sounds lI'm ike complaining instead of being thankful - thats not the case, the component states are awesome,d thank you…

  20. Create new Symbol from Existing Symbol (while preserving states)

    I'm using the new convert sketch library in XD to import all the different libraries i have. While I appreciate the ability to add states, it has one major flaw.

    I cannot create a new symbol from an existing symbol that already has the states i want in it.

    A good example of this is my button system. See screenshot for how it exists in sketch now.

    Basically i have 20 different types of buttons (this is an enterprise design system) each with 2 different sizes (big and small) and each of those button types comes in 5 states:

    Default,…
