  1. Separate opacity for border, fill/area, and image thats inside the frame

    Seperate opacity of border, area/fill and image inside the frame. So I can set the image to 80% and with the black fill it will be shaded/darkened but the white boarder is still white and has no opacity!

  2. Duplicate Items in the Layers panel with Option/Alt+Drag

    It would be amazing to option+drag an item in the Layer's Panel. I find myself wanting to duplicate something by dragging from one folder (or symbol) to another.

    At the moment I can't even drag an item out of a Symbol into another folder or layer in the Layer's panel.

  3. Round to the nearest 10 pixels when using shift + up/down (like Illustrator)

    One of my favourite features in Illustrator is that it rounds units to the nearest ten when using shift and clicking the up/down buttons or hitting the up/down keys.

    Just to be 100% clear, I’m not talking about bumping up/down by exactly 10px like what Photoshop does. If a shape is 23 pixels wide and you hold shift and hit the up key while the width text box is focused, the shape will bump to 30 pixels, not 33 pixels. It’s glorious!

  4. Export all symbols

    hi,

    Xd allows to us to make some basic symbols, it would be very usefull to be able to export those symbols individually out of XD.
    It would speed up my process from designing website to putting img in html.

    You should already be able to copy and paste vectors from both Illustrator and Photoshop. In Photoshop, you’ll need to copy as vector in order to paste into XD. For more about both, please read: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/help/working-with-external-assets.html

    I believe we also support transparent bitmap layers from Photoshop as well on Mac.

    Please let us know if this answers your question!

  6. Repeat grid gutter working with dynamic text size

    Text comes in 2 modes: line or bloc. The particularity of the line mode is that the size is dynamic.

    When creating a Repeat grid with a text line, it would be uber cool that if we change the replicas content, the gutter applies on the new text width, which is best for classic inline items (menu, breadcrumb, …).

    For now, the gutter adapts to the largest item.

  7. Export SVG With Inline Styles

    If you'll use exported SVG graphics as a code embedded into your HTML (but not as an external .svg image) you encounter CSS issues.
    The problem is in <style></style> which you generate on SVG export. Every path in SVG has its class name and they all are named like "a", "b", "c" etc… (image 1 attached)
    1. These classes may cause conflict with existing classes, in case I already have "a", "b", "c" classes in my HTML.
    2. These classes will interfere styles of other SVGs exported from XD and embedded on the page.

    Solution:
    Remove classes and generate inline…

  8. Flag hidden text on Export

    When exporting (to PDF, PNG, anything) scan to see if any text is hidden inside text boxes (of the artboards that are being exported) and warn the user that there is some hidden text. Just of the artboards or assets that are being exported, however. e.g. If I'm exporting pages 1 - 4, don't tell me there's some hidden text on page 5.

    (look at InDesign for example of this functionality).

  9. Publish .xd file format spec

    I’d love to build tools that parse the .xd file format, but I haven’t been able to find an official .xd spec anywhere. Does this exist? If not, can it? I don’t mind if the spec changes frequently; that’s the pain of being an early adopter.

  11. Design Roadmap

    My team often needs a vision to start with, but also smaller increments for in between. It would be great to have the possibility to show the design roadmap to the devs / shareholders.

    Some more detail:
    We will usually have a big idea, very rough on a sketch level - defined from user research etc. But to get to this point and to have it validated, we need to split it up in smaller increments.
    Now I just have an xd file called vision, then another one mvp or mvp2 or mvp3 ... you get it. It would be…

  12. Align and distribute path anchor points

    As a Designer I want to create more complex shapes quickly. To align vectors in a vector shape I want to apply alignment or distribution to selected set of vectors or a singe vector to quickly create correct and precise shapes.

    In short - provide the alignment / distribution also for single or a selection of vectors.

  13. Quick way to navigate to a specific artboard when viewing shared prototype

    It would be great to be able to choose the page to view online directly.

    When you want to quickly show a certain page in your mockup, or start anywhere else than your designated Home, it can be tedious to click through the prototype as not all the paths are there.
    Using the previous/next buttons can be confusing as it depends on how you have spread out the artboards.

  14. Reorder layers in Mask via Layers panel

    At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

  15. Add some basic editing features for mobile app

    Hope to see some basic editing features for mobile app. This could be really helpful for prototyping.

  16. Update border or fill of selected object dynamically when using eyedropper

    You've just selected an object (or group of objects) and want to try out different fill and/or border colors, but you want to use the eyedropper tool to pick up colors from your design, or a photo.

    Wouldn't it be cool if, as you're hovering the eyedropper, your selection gave you a real-time "clean" preview? By clean I mean without the selection UI around it (the green transparent outline and white handles).

    (Originally: "Clean", live update of object as eyedropper is being used to select new Fill/Border color)

  17. Load a URL inside a container object (embed code)

    The idea is to be able to leverage content already on the web via a URL, for prototyping purposes.

    It could be as simple as the following:


    1. Add a new "Web container" type of object

    2. Double-click for a popup asking for the URL, press enter

    The content could load right away. Xd could take a snapshot of it so that it doesn't slow things down in Design mode, but in Proto mode it would of course show live content.

    There would also be more options, like enabling/disabling vertical and horizontal scrolling for the container.

  18. Keyboard shortcut for turning border and fill on and off

    I love that the Xd team values the designer's flow, so that the designer can work as efficiently as possible, without the tool getting in the way.

    Setting colors is a perfect case study for this. There's nothing more flow-breaking than having to go fetch something in the toolbar, especially with a common operation like setting colors.

    Needless to say it would be "un-Xd" not to have intuitive, flow-friendly keyboard shortcuts for these operations... so, here are some ideas:

    If using straight keyboard keys:

    "i" to activate the Fill eyedropper
    "b" to activate the Border eyedropper

    Ctrl+i to remove Fill …

  19. Export files to flinto and Principle

    What I love from XD is the ability to design and prototype in the same tool without having to install hundreds of plugins and the lightweight that it is. Sometimes have to animate things faster with custom animations and I use these tools (Principle and Flinto) to create them. I've been obligated to recreate my designs into this tools then animate. It should be nice to have a export tool to this tools or others.

  20. Copy from XD & paste into Sketch (not raster but vector)

    Currently, it's just pasted as a raster image...
