  1. After Effects Export - Grouped paths as single shape layer

    When sending files to After Effects, add ability for paths that are grouped together to come in as a single shape layer, instead of multiple parented shape layers.

    • Send to After Effects - Choose where to save images

      Ability to save images in a specific location when sending to AE. I noticed it gets saved to the local disk, but our team works on a server so that isn't ideal.

      • Simply make XD full Adobe CC ecosystem friendly...

        Well... after trying many times XD and giving up frustrated after every try, I’ve reached some thoughts about why its still unusable for my “particular” user experience:

        1. I’ve been doing user interface mock-ups with Illustrator for at least a decade, so my skills are focused on be productive with it and import image assets from Photoshop when needed. Then, I haven’t time to face a learn curve on a new design tool. I want to keep using Illustrator.

        2. Being an Adobe CC long time user, I’ve grown with a deep understanding of Adobe CC ecosystem. Each program cooperates…

          Thanks for your feedback.

          1) Our intent is for you to be able to still use Illustrator. We can now open Illustrator files, so you can design in Illustrator, bring your designs over to XD, and then add in motion using our Prototype mode.

          2) You can use Creative Cloud Libraries to update your linked assets across documents. If auto update images is something you’re interested in, there is a feature request in this database you can upvote. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109

          3) It sounds like you’re interested in dark mode, there’s a feature request for that as well. Over time, you’ll see both Illustrator and XD moving to a more universal design system. Hopefully that will help! https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12940362

          Please let us know if you have specific requests beyond those two above.

        • Integration with zeroheight

          My company has the design system and components in Zeroheight, as it makes our designs to be consistent and is an easy way to share assets. I would be ideal if XD could integrate this plugin for our work and to push other designers to start using XD (as at the moment they consider this a blocker)

          • Confluence (Server) Integration

            We need a possibility to embed prototypes and design specs into Confluence (Server version, not Cloud) since we use confluence to manage large ui and software projects. Confluence therefor is the central place to organise user stories, screen designs, prototpyes etc.

            • Integration of Overflow plugin

              Please provide to the Overflow plugin the prototyping links.
              Other tools just do that.

              Without this feature we have to redesign all the navigation.
              Thanks

                • Export to After Effects at @2x resolution

                  Export to AE works great. I do however wish image assets would come in at @2x resolution (or even @3x as an option?). This way the comp wouldn’t end up blurry.

                  • Alternate Input API

                    My work involves a lot of non-traditional input devices. From gamepads to custom industrial controllers. Being able to develop middleware on my end and communicate with, let's say, a websocket API into XD would allow for much wider usage at our studio.

                    Ex. Websockets, UDP or TCP to control prototype interaction.

                    • Protopie Export - Retain Element Types

                      Not sure if this is something XD would do or Protopie.

                      Currently when exporting to Protopie there are no options aside from which artboards to send. When the elements come over they are all flattened to bitmap images. Protopie seems to have almost the exact same element types as XD but they currently do not link to one another and there is no option to select bitmap or text/editable vector. This is great for text since it means users won't need to have the fonts installed to view the prototype correctly on mobile. But it is a serious issue when…

                                • Dynamic content hosted outside of XD

                                  It would be awesome if we could ensure design files and copy docs were in sync as copy changes are made. What if there was a google sheet that could serve as the copy source of truth and any changes were synchronized. Or you could make copy changes in XD as you lay things out and synch those changes with a copy file of some kind. https://www.contentsync.io/ and https://kopie.io/ are two tools that are thinking about this problem in different ways. Maybe there is room in XD for something like this?

                                    • Adding ID to views and elements

                                      I'm doing an app and i'm getting a lot of views. It would be great if we could add an ID to views/elements and write somewhere (a console maybe ?) something like "for each view that contains this ID, add this button" or "change the background color".
                                      I think it would makes us gain a lot of time.
                                      It could be a feature for those who know how to code ? Or something simpler that everyone could use without coding.

                                      Thanks for reading !

                                        It would do well to all of us if we could connect our projects to an existing domain address and have it LIVE.
                                        I believe that this feature would be most appreciated by everyone since it allows us to be able to create a website or app the way we want and then be able to put it LIVE right away.

                                        • Use Mobile Device to Show Palettes

                                          Is there a way you could create the ability to use a mobile device to display actionable palettes?

                                          I use a two display setup on my desktop. When I travel I have to use my laptop which means I can't have very many palettes available without using up my project workspace on screen.

                                          What if I could connect my mobile device via usb or bluetooth and have actionable palettes displayed there. I could have several palettes onscreen on a tablet, or on a phone, then I could just swipe left or right to the palette I wanted. I could then…
