  1. Conditional Repeat Grid contents - different sets of items share different "templates"

    Allow me to have various layout types iterating within a repeating grid. This could be driven from an excel spreadsheet with true or false conditions or some way to indicate for this Data Set, pull Layout X. This would allow me to pull real data and then scrub the data to indicate which layout type to pull for representation. This would include pulling a different layout to accommodate extra data.

  2. Auto Arrange Artboard Layout in Prototype Mode

    I'd love to have some auto arrangement in prototype mode, which might be really helpful when screens get too much and organising them turns into pain. I've seen other softwares dealing with this kind of problem very neatly.

  3. Dotted underlined text style

    That feature would be the killer-feature! Trust me — it will economy dozens hours of life when designers need to show links with dotted underline (which is often usable thing to hide some tips or to show user that it is clickable, but not redirecting to other url)

  4. Able to make box text threaded (overflow between text boxes / columns)

    To speed up work with text in few columns — just like in InDesign

  5. Include Baseline Grid for text

    I really like the feature on InDesign where you can view the baseline grid for text. Since the placement of text on a website depends on where it sits in its own baseline grid, it would be really helpful if there was a way to toggle it on and off.

    Having this would make it easier to know where exactly a block of text would be placed if it were say, 30px underneath an image.

    It would also really help if I wanted to make a word have a background color, so I could easily figure out how tall that…

  6. Show all interaction wires (links) without having to Select All

    In order to work and review the overall faster, I need an option to click on on the view menu that allows me to see all the links without having to click on all the artboards.

  7. Change anchor point appearance to classic Adobe (or provide a setting to switch to it)

    Million times I've heard designers from my network complaining about toy-like anchor points in Sketch. I've even read articles about this online (seriously, google it).

    I think that as a real-world UX and UI tool Adobe XD is supposed to provide a sense of a precise and reliable mechanism that does the job, and it's already surpassing Sketch in this aspect, but the anchor points are killing it for me.

  8. Dynamic content spacers/content aware object placement

    I attached an image explaining the idea. In short - cut our design time by 50%. When adding content to content blocks you almost always need to do the tedious task of selecting everything beneath and moving it to create space for the changes. I want to eliminate this task by using Dynamic content spacers. Just hover over a border and connect that border to another - lock it and type in your prefered px / point or % - your preference and voila. Every time you make changes the design just moves magically with all the content :)

  9. Define aspect pixel ratio (support non-square pixels)

    Some LCD pixels are non-square shape. For example, displays for industrial devices. In this case, the aspect ratio of the pixel remains close to square -- usually the difference between horizontal and vertical does not exceed 10%.

    But nevertheless, the distortion of the elements due to this distinction can sometimes be seen on the display destination (target) device.

    Propose to add the sizes for non-square pixels, and the simulation display similar to pixels on a computer screen of the designer (whose pixels are square) to display on the screen the designer was the same as it is on the screen…

  10. Insert new art board between two existing art boards

    After creating 10 art boards, I realised that one scenario in the middle was missed out. Now have to make a new art board and insert it in between. But now have to manually move all the art boards. Would like the space between the artboards to be uniform. Sorry if this seems like an OCD :P

  11. Vertical Alignment of text in text box

    Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.

  13. Reset Bounding Box (don't match rotation of shape/path)

    Please implement a ‘Reset Bounding Box’ function for drawn vector shapes. They conflict with alignment and centring.

  14. Use same shortcuts as Adobe Illustrator (or Photoshop?)

    Just in an effort of compatibility it would be nice to have the same default shortcuts (for those used to it) or being able to customize the shortcuts. Thank you !

  16. Trim Recorded Video

    Something very similar to Quicktime's Trim feature, I would like to be able to trim the video on either side so that I can get the mouse in the right position, etc (this isn't cropping the video to a new resolution, simply shortening the length of the video)

    Hi Kieran,

    Thanks for your feedback! This feature is already in our backlog – not sure when it will arrive, but we’re aware of the need for it.

    Regards,
    Joe

  18. Display artboards framed by a mobile device outline

    Ability to add a device outline to show context.. would be cool to even create your own device outline (currently I'm designing a UI prototype for a smart credit card, but having to use a mobile screen UI canvas to show the interactions)

  19. See a preview of the target artboard when drawing wires

    When prototyping it is sometimes difficult to use the pick-whip to select the target screen if it is far away. The alternative is to choose the screen from the drop down menu, which I think works fine other than the fact that it requires you to be able to identify the screen is from the artboard name only. It would be helpful to see a preview of the artboard along with the name.

    Additionally, it would be great if there was some visual cue as to what elements already have hotspots assigned to them. Right now it seems like you…
