  1. Hide all panels

    Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
    (like F in Photoshop)

    Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!

    I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.

  2. Export to Adobe Animate CC to add animation

    It would be great to have an integration with adobe ANIMATE CC therefore just to make some code snippets, and the backbone codification, but to have all the assets linked as screens in the timeline of Adobe animate cc would be great, improving the time that an app can need to be published.

  3. Change number values in active field using scroll wheel

    It is terrible to re-type eg. font-size values using keyboard.

  4. Interactive Prototyping for User Testing

    I use JustInMind to prototype Web and Mobile apps that I then user-test. The JIM application is less than optimal, but to attract a broader Human Factors / Usability / Design audience you're going to need a lot more than "scrolling."

    Interactive elements such as text fields, check boxes, drop-downs, etc. that can all be connected, responding to user inputs as needed, in a manner that replicates a real application in its native environment is what is needed.

    I look forward to that day, as your design tools and simple, visual linking paradigm are certainly winners.

  5. Integrate with Adobe Comp CC

    Allow adobe comp app the capability to export to experience design. Also allow users to select a new project or add to an existing one. This would allow users to create on the go.

  6. Keyboard shortcut: Resize shapes using Cmd+arrows

    Allow to resize shapes using cmd+arrows. It's one of the best Sketch features, it's really useful for pixel perfecting.

    Cmd-up arrow to increase height, Cmd-down to decrease height.
    Cmd-right increases width, Cmd-left decreases width.

  8. Change image only in single repeat grid item

    Would be nice to be able to change images of repeat grid items. At the moment if I drag & drop on a repeat grid item, all instances will change …

    Here’s how it works currently:

    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid where all grid cells show the same image, the image will change in all the grid cells.
    • If you drag multiple images onto a Repeat Grid, you will set up a repeating sequence of different images. For example, if I drag in 5 images at the same time, the first 5 grid cells will show different images and then the pattern will repeat (e.g. every 5th grid cell will show the same image).
    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid that already has a repeating sequence of images, you’ll replace all copies of the image you dropped onto. For example, if you had a sequence of 5 images repeated 3 times (15 total grid cells), and then you drop a single image onto one grid cell, you’ll see 3 copies of that…
  9. Set width and height in percentages

    When you enter a width for an object, also be able to set the size using a percent.

  10. Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

    It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

  11. InDesign integration

    Would like XD to work with InDesign in much the same manner that AI and PSD files do. This might be more of a feature request for InDesign however I imagine they both play a role in working together.

    Ultimately, in order for a design to be implemented correctly, we need to provide a detailed UI specification for engineering. This specification is often worked on by interaction and visual designers which is part of what makes InDesign an ideal solution for us.

    The prototyping functionality is great for communicating how a design could work, but we still need an accompanying…

  12. Gestures - swipe, pinch/zoom, force touch

    In order to full use this as a UX professional, I would have to have the ability to include gestures, most critically for handing a stakeholder a wireframe or design. Gestural swipes, two-finger zoom, force-touch, etc. Otherwise I don't think too many experience UX professionals will be able to properly communicate core functionality and the behavioral imperatives incumbent to the process.

  13. Hold spacebar to move shape while drawing it

    While drawing a shape, you should be able to hold the spacebar to adjust its position. I use this shortcut all the time in Photoshop and Sketch.

  14. Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

    I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

  15. Choose reference / anchor point for transform origin and X, Y display

    Being able to change the reference point from the upper-left to center or lower right or whathaveyou is so useful in other Adobe apps. Having to do everything with top-left x/y is a pain when trying to position objects by their center.

    Choose point by clicking 9-grid icon

  16. Fonts preview

    When you choose font for text, would be good to have some preview about how it'll look.

  17. Built-in file browser panel

    Dropping images from Finder is cool, but it might not be tricky (especially if you've got single screen) to have Finder window and some element you want to have image applied visible at once.

    Would be cool to have some kind of files browser inside XD

  18. Bind the hand tool to the middle mouse button (another)

    It's just so much easier and intuitive to navigate this way

    (information lost when I edited the title: this is the behavior in After Effects)


    • Also including custom bindings to other mouse buttons

  19. Draw rectangle with preset proportion (e.g. 16:9)

    This is the very crucial thing in ui design to create consistent layouts.

  20. Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour

    Most of modern apps have some custom behaviour - for example

    In user profile, you see big profile picture, but when you scroll down to see user posts - picture gets smaller and moves to the corner.

    Would be cool to be able to treat scroll position as kind of keyframes timeline, where you can modify styles of some elements and tween them depending on how much some view is scrolled.

    Some tools have kind of similar option - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRHuAq4PqQo - check first 30 secs.
