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

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

  3. Improve selection of objects with no fill

    select-tool can't grab a group of outline objects without zooming in
    in indesign or illustrator this is much easier....

  6. Snap to objects inside groups from outside (Smart Guides align to all objects regardless of group nesting)

    When objects are in a group smart guides do not show up for those objects, only the group. It makes it hard to keep an artboard organized, no objects you want to align other objects to can be in groups.

  7. Create font fallback in design file

    Each web page is applied multiple font families in CSS file in general, and it lets a browser on its OS read corresponding font family based on the order of font family.

    On Mac OS, Windows, iOS and Android, installed font families are different from each other, and some letters in languages (e.g. Japanese on Reference1.png captured on Android app) seems to cause being garbled.

    If multiple font family is able to apply, it'd be great especially when the prototype is reviewed by multiple OS / devices. My idea would be attached as Reference2.png.

    How would you think?

    Thanks!

  8. Different icons to differentiate between point type and area type in layers panel

    It may be helpful to see which text objects are point versus area at a glance in the layers panel.

    Just a thought.

  9. Show full artboard name on hover

    Currently, to view the full artboard name if it's masked with an ellipsis, double clicking to change the name of the artboard is required to see the name in full.

    Please just let us see the full artboard name if we hover over the unmasked portion of the artboard name

    Artboard naming is critical when building prototypes and assigning interactions. Need to be able to quickly see the unmasked artboard name so we know we're working on the right one.

  10. Indicate which artboard is currently active on mobile device in XD window

    When users have their mobile device tethered to their machine via USB and are viewing a prototype on that device, as the user traverses through screens it would be helpful to indicate on the computer on the XD canvas which dartboard is currently being shown on the mobile device.

    This would be to help track screen flow as you click through a complex prototype.

  11. Export to Dreamweaver

    A great feature would be to export a layout into a format that could be edited in Dreamweaver allowing us to create a layout or UI and then build a final producr straight off of that.

    This would speed up the design process and levels of productivity tremendously.

  12. Auto layout for different screen sizes

    Subform allows a designer to design on 1 art and it will translate to ALL sizes without having to manually resize for every viewport.

    That is dope! You guys need to get on that.

  13. Photoshop's "Scrubby Zoom"

    (Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)
    I've seen newer implementation of the Zoom tool updated for the Mac version.

    However I don't think I've seen "Scrubby Zoom" implemented.

    Currently many users don't use a track pad. Using a marque selection is a slower multi-step process to zoom. Using the mouse wheel to zoom also isn't nowhere as fast as the Photoshop's "Scrubby Zoom".

    To see what I mean in Photoshop (Windows keyboard shortcut), hold CTRL + Space Bar, and use your mouse to left click & hold, and move from left to right. You'll see your document scrubby zoom, in…

  14. Color Management (set color profiles)

    XD should be a color managed application.

    I'm not sure what the full context of color management is within the UI/UX industry is, or if it's something that many pay attention to, or if it's just left un-managed.
    Currently a vast majority of designers are using high gamut displays to design. Our final output will however differ greatly without some proper color management implemented. If color managment is implemented, we can at least visually soft proof our design and colors to specific devices (ie: New iOS devices that support P3 color gamut), or older sRGB devices.
    At the same time…

  15. Distribute by number

    Some designs will require pixel precision, it would be great if the current "Align & Distribute" can be enhanced to "Distribute" objects based on pixel spacing. In similar way to how InDesign's "Align & Distribute" panel works. This becomes useful when distributing objects that are not the same that need to be spaced out an even amount of pixels quickly and precise.

    (Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

    EDITED: I'd like to be able to enter a number while distributing to ensure that my items are X pixels apart.

  16. "Scaling Tool" (scale stroke weight, shadow effects & corners when resizing)

    Ability to scale attributes proportionately. When creating shapes, buttons, or icons within XD sometimes they need to be scaled to different sizes. Currently when scaling these shapes, buttons, or icons created within XD we can no scale some of the attributes proportionately.

    As an example I create a container box with a stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text. If I need to scale proportionately, like say 50%, the stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text don't scale proportionately.

  17. Pasting images/artwork into shapes (ie: Like InDesign)

    Currently in XD you have to mask images with a shape, which takes extra steps to accomplish. Being able to paste images or artwork into shapes similar to InDesign is much faster workflow and only requires a single step when working on the canvas.

  18. Apple Watch Preview App

    Apple watch Adobe XD app (that runs on Apple watch watch).
    Wouldn't require many additional features compared to its iPhone counterpart.


    • Support for 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch sized artboards within Adobe XD (desktop)

    • Support for linked objects/hotspots within the watch previewer app

    • Transition effects visible within the watch previewer app

    • Close prototype by using force touch within the watch previewer app

    • Support for fixed headers

  20. Symbol / component isolation mode during edit (dim out other elements in background)

    When you edit a symbol inline, it would be really useful if everything else dulled out or something, so that it was cleat that that is what your doing – think isolation mode in illustrator

    I just confused the hell out of myself by repositioning the contents of a symbol, rather than the symbol itself, then at some point later seeing all my other artboards with random positioned stuff. And then when trying to fix (without realising what had happened), I managed to edit the symbol again : /
