  1. 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…

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 !

  7. 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,

  9. 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…

  11. Sort/Group Artboards in interaction/wire popup's Target Artboard list

    It would be great to be able to sort and maybe group artboards. I think it would make it easier to select the target artboard in prototyping mode if you were able to sort them, alphabetically or even group multiple artboards so that you wouldn't need to scroll through a long list of artboards just to find the one you would like to target. It would be really usefully especially when your XD project contains 60 or even 100 artboards. Imagine scrolling through a list of 100 artboards that isn't sorted?

  12. Better Anchor Point Manipulation


    • Anchor Points are a bit tough to manipulate. The manipulation right now is too 'free'.


    • Points only align to other points within the same vector object and not boundaries, points or edges of other shapes.


    There should be object and point snapping as well as holding shift to snap to axis etc.

  13. Pixel Preview

    A quick toggle for pixel preview would be much appreciated. Just like the one in Adobe Illustrator.

  15. File Properties for Imported Objects

    A 'Properties' or Meta panel, different from a 'CSS' panel.

    This panel would have information on imported or placed files and their attributes.

    Files would have their source (src) property, original dimensions, size, etc. Maybe even a little thumbnail.

    There would also be a way of changing the linked file, opening source file in associated software etc.

  16. Automatically slide other artboards out of the way when moving / reordering

    It would be nice to be able to precisely swap the position of two artboards by dragging and holding a modifier key. So for instance, if there are three artboards in a row, I could hold CMD while dragging artboard 1, and as I hover between artboards 2 and 3, artboard 2 moves to the left to make room to drop artboard 1.

  17. Emoji in text

    I'd love to be able to include emojis in texts when I'm designing.

    In fact I'd love to be able to include my own icons, pasted into texts, similar to what you can do with indesign!

  18. Change / reset an artboard's size to a stock template size

    When I select an existing artboard, the properties panel at the right should present the list of stock sizes (E.g., Apple Watch) for changing the size, with the current stock size selected if it's there.

    I don't care about the content conforming to the new size (though that would be nice).

    Scenario: I've created a bunch of wires and now want to show selected screens targeting a different device:

    Desired steps: duplicate that artboard, set it to a different stock size by selecting it at the right, resize and rearrange a bunch of stuff in the artboard.

  19. A complete product for designer to create app

    I am extremely sorry, but sharing just a thought which may not part of this product, but might its related to all our UX designer thinking/ feelings. We are really sensitive about out creativity, and do not wanted to give up while its getting developed/ or do not wanted to depend on someone.

    What if Adobe come up a complete end to end product for UX professional or UI experts, where they do not need to code a single line and create a complete product which will be a tough competition to XCODE or respective application.

    May be the basic…

  20. Single-click selects objects inside the currently selected group - without need to double-click / hold Cmd

    Hi!

    I know I can directly select a non-group object no matter how deeply grouped it is by Command-clicking it. But if I want to select a group that's grouped multiple levels deep, I'm forced to double-click my way down until I reach it.

    Double-clicking multiple times in a row has annoying feel of excess effort and sluggishness, probably because the minimum elapsed time the OS needs between double-clicks in order to recognize them as separate events is way too long.

    In other products I use (OmniGraffle, Axure), single-clicking an object or a group that's one level down within an…
