  1. XD Mobile App: 'Refresh' current document

    The XD iOS preview app should have a 'refresh' function.

    I've had the app lose connection several times, and not update even though I am still editing the document.

    A 'refresh' function could re-connect to the currently open document and reload the changes made since the last update.

  2. Increase visual contrast between active and inactive layers

    Hi, I really get the urge to use a minimalistic design UI in your new software, but the design should not stand in the way of usability.

    One problem I have is that is is really hard to distinguish between active layers and none active ones because the grey color is way to similar.

    Also (example attachment) it is hard to quickly see which layers are grouped with which folder/symbol if the Layerbox has a lot of layers. (Maybe use an down facing arrow like in Photoshop)

  3. Edit Original in Photoshop / Illustrator

    There should be an option for 'Edit Original' in a right-click menu.

    For example, an image in the document should be able to launch Photoshop by clicking 'Edit Original'.

  4. Placing multiple images like in indesign

    It would be great if you could just drag multiple images into XD and place them one by one onto shapes (like in indesign)

  5. Dragging and Dropping Outside Items into Repeat Grids Instead of Cutting and Pasting

    After creating a repeat grid, if you have elements outside the grid that you want to add to the grid, it cannot be simply dropped into the Repeat Grid 'Group". You have to cut it and double click into the grid to paste it in.

  6. Maintain scale when dragging symbol from panel

    v 0.6.2.7

    -when placing a symbol, the scale is not always correct, so I drag and drop from the symbols menu/bar, and sometimes the scale is ~70%.

    So when I release, and "place" the symbol, it grows, and isn't placed correctly, requiring me to re-select, and then re-place the symbol. Not a huge problem, but feels like an inconsistent experience, buggy, and was probably just an oversight.

    Symbols should always come off the menu bar @ 100% scale, so I only have to select and place it once.

  7. Automatically generated charts and graphs

    We often design Area Graphs, Doughnut Charts, Bars etc for Dashboards. Personally I switch between AI and PS to design this type of stuffs.

    But it would be great to have an easier way design Charts and Graphs in Adobe XD.

    For example, I would like the following method to design a Doughnut Chart:
    Draw a circle
    Select Doughnut Chart from Menu
    Insert Percentages and colors
    Hit OK and done!
    Similar idea for other type of graphs.

    Thanks for the Awesome work, XD Team!

  11. Allow Developer to download different types of fonts like .ttf .woff and .otf

    When the spec and style guide comes out in early 2017 (which I cannot wait). Usually, the developer would ask me to give them multiple file formats of the same font. I would always convert the font online to do that and it's a tedious process of uploading, converting, download and put it in a zip folder for them. It would be great if Adobe XD can automatically convert it itself.

  12. Allow multi-selection of an object in a symbol and an object outside of a symbol

    I can't select those two objects (Attachment / Red dots). The reason I want to select them is because I want to align them.

  13. Do not change layers view on deselect

    I find it highly irritating that the Layer-Mode always collapses/closes the Artboard if you click outside of it.

    Some people are used to click outside the artboard to deselect.

  14. Create Symbol toolbar button for quick access

    It would be a great time saver to click on a layer and than on a "Create Symbol" button, instead of having to right-click or to switch to the "Symbol-mode"

  16. Multiline text box adjustment in repeat grid

    In repeating grids, it would be great if there was a way to adjust the position (x,y) of objects adjacent to text boxes based on the width and height of their content.

    For example, designing a comments UI, it would be nice to have multiline text that varies from 1-5 lines that would push the elements below it to match the margins set in the original instance. So if you have a "reply" link below the multiline text it would move +y to match the intended layout.

  17. Disable trackpad/magicmouse touch movement

    I just started using Adobe XD instead of other UX system and I like it a lot but there were hundreds of times when I almost broke my mouse because of this nasty, frustrating mouse gestures turned on. There should be no such thing as option to move the screen only by the touch gestures in SUCH precise app. No other Adobe app has this feature turned on and it's absolutely ok to move the screen only when holding the space bar (Hand). It's natural. By doing it your way (mouse/trackpad gestures) you can easily reposition the elements by few…

  18. Allow selection of antialiasing style on export

    I'm designing a webpage, when I exported to PNG mockup, I've got issue with the font, please find my attached files, one exported from XD and one exported from photoshop with same font family & size.

    The one XD got a bit blurry than the Photoshop one. I think the problem that I can choose "Sharp" anti-aliasing method in Photoshop. But XD seems like exporting as "Smooth" anti-alias.

    I tried to find somewhere in XD with the options. But couldn't find.

    Anybody please help. Thanks

  19. Embed Controls from External Control packages

    For many of my clients with web based projects we'll use several control suites such as Telerik Kendo UI, DevExpress DevExtreme, jQuery UI, Bootstrap, or Infragistic controls. It would be stellar if we could import the control packages based on the provided JS and CSS in order to make use of those controls out of the box. An example of why this would be great is many of the controls in these suites might not be possible at all with XD... a progress bar, timer, data grid... but they're needed at times to display crucial UI elements.

  20. Tooltips / Annotations that appear WHILE using interactive prototype

    Add the ability to embed tooltips and/or annotations on design so that when a user is interacting with your prototype and hits a "hotspot" a tooltip or annotation appears.
