  1. Remember last choice

    If I am creating a primitive shape, every new eg. rectangle has this annoying border and white fill - as a designer, having created a eg. fill red border none rectangle I would like my next rectangle to be like the last one so I do not have to constantly remove borders/fills on newly created primitives.

    In other words make XD more like the excellent and trusty Illustrator while implementing emulation of CSS properties and js behaviours. Please stop with this 'millennial streamlining' bs.

  3. Illustrator style commands

    Illustrator and XD keyboard commands should work as much alike as possible.
    eg. pressing [command] should temporarily switch to selection tool like in Illustrator, having to multiple-[escape] is extremely annoying.

  5. Modified files in folders should also be sorted

    When modifying a document inside a folder, the folder maintains its position in the Xd launch screen > Cloud Documents.
    If I modify a file in a folder, it should show as the first item. So the sort order should take files in folders into account and re-order the folder too.

  6. Stacks do not depend on layer order (or layer order can be reversed)

    Currently, a stack is dependent on the stacking order of the layers.

    Usually, that doesn't cause any trouble. But I have grid layout (aka table) where a context menu needs to fly up instead of down. To prevent the menu from ending up under the rows above, I have to break the stack so I can reverse the layer order (ie the row at the lowest y value needs to be at the highest z value).

    Ideally, a stack would not depend on layer order.
    Alternatively, you could just allow for reversing the logic somewhere, like a sort flip control.

  7. Assume everything is marked for export

    Huge pain in the but selected all artboards and making sure everything is marked for export. The use case of components not being marked for export is little to none. Pls default

  8. Component should have its own coordinate system

    position elements relative to the component coordinate system NOT THE RANDOM ARTBOARD IT IS ON!!!!

    When you make a component it should have its own coordinate system where the upper left corner is 0, 0. It is insane that you reference the artboard for position and not the parent container (component). I know you thought was a good idea when you made it this way. I am sure you had to go to your boss to force the software developers to get this feature. I am sure that they had to write a work around to even get it to…

  9. Responsive font size for different screens

    Designing for web means mocking up, at minimum, for desktop and mobile. I have to create separate heading styles for both device sizes. Would be so so nice if I could define font sizes based on device widths for each heading style and swap them all at once, rather than tediously going through the mockups and updating each text box one-by-one.

  10. Make PDF export free again

    I use AdobeXD to design my (one page) CV. Everytime I update something, I need to create a new PDF, since you can't use SVG or PNG when applying somewhere (they most likely print it out for the personal interview).

    So this limits me to 2 changes in the free version which I do not see as fair. Please make it unlimited again, thanks.

    PS: With a bit of a workaround it is possible to convert SVG to PNG anyway, it is just totally unnecessary IMHO.

  11. Transition between overlays

    The idea is quite simple and it exists already in Figma. When you have a dialog displayed as an overlay, it often changes its content as the user interacts with it (I don't want to create a component for that - it shouldn't be the purpose of the component feature and it makes the component panel messy.) So when creating a link between 2 states of an overlay, I would like to have an option to switch the overlays.

    Then It would be awesome if the option "close overlay" would close the overlay (the "previous artboard" is not helpful here).

  13. Manage all web links for current document within XD

    Have a way to view all of the Prototypes created for the file you're in (keep it contextual) and a list of all of the URLs. Ability to edit the names, delete protos, etc - manage the availability all from w/in XD. I know some of this is available, but it's not very user-friendly as it stands. It's all buried and not managed together.

  14. Ability to unlink component from source document without breaking component states

    Currently a component is fully chained to the original document it was built in. No way of copying the component will unchain it from that source document unless the component is unlinked and rebuilt from the ground up. Given that early mock ups or sometimes separate documents are where an idea may be built then brought in later, this creates a chaotic hop around from source to source to source. As far as I know, there's no way to reliably drop all source elements into a single document after the thing has been built.

  15. Dual Screen support

    It would be great if some features to support dual-screen laptops, like zenbook duo, could be added. Similar to the control panel support available for adobe photoshop.

    Meanwhile, it would have been nice if the panels were dockable at least. Since the panels could not be docked aside, we are not able to take the panels to a separate screen.

    Thanks for your feedback! Your second suggestion already exists, so I’m going to keep this one open for dual screen support. You should upvote the other one to get updates on that.

  16. Add confirmation when exporting many assets

    All export targets

    File-> Export-> All Export Targets
    Can you consider displaying a confirmation dialog such as "Export XXX files? Export / Cancel" when you select this flow? (Or you can interrupt this operation)

    Reason: When you want to output only one artboard, select "File-> Export-> Selected Objects", but sometimes you click "All Export Targets" due to an operation error. If all the images to be exported in the file are output, it will take a while to wait for processing, so it would be greatly appreciated if you could implement a method to avoid such an operation error. is.

  18. Copy paste effects, animations prototype not only wire directions

    Please make that if I copy paste interactions it will paste animation settings as well, not only the art-board and wire connection

  19. Replay button in preview animation mode.

    It's necessary to replay and view an animation again & again to get the detailed mistakes. But to replay or restart the animation, I have to close the current preview and open the preview again. What about adding a button through which we can easily do this by one click?

  20. Longer component names in side panel on XD Share view.

    I can't see the component names in an XD Share link because they're long. I'd like the ability to either 1) view the whole name on hover, 2) resize the right hand nav panel to be wider or 3) have any long information scroll on hover. Truncating the name with an ellipsis doesn't help anyone.
