  1. 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.

  3. 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…
  4. Set width and height in percentages

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

  5. 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!

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Fonts preview

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

  12. 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

  13. 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

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

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

  15. Custom Scroll Animation Behavior (scroll trigger)

    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.

  16. Record only a portion of the Preview window

    I'd like the ability to crop a section of a prototype when recording.

    For example, if I want to record a video of clicking through a form, I don't need to show the entire layout — just the relevant section.

    This would result in a better visualization tool, as well as smaller video or gif file sizes.

  17. iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support

    I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.

    A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

  18. Use CSS properties / classes to specify object appearance

    Add unique CSS properties to object properties.
    Things like Margins, Padding and un-even borders are not common for design apps, but it would be great to define them per object in XD, honor them in the design mode, and export them as part of the object css,

  19. Double click to leave isolation mode

    It's completely annoying when I trying select area in isolation mode but instead selecting some objects in the background due to Xd exiting from isolation mode.

    Please make Isolation mode same to Ai isolation mode: double click on object to enter isolation mode, double click out of object to leave isolation mode.

  20. Direct selection tool - adjust points in multiple shapes at once

    I need direct selection tool to adjust groups this way:
    1. I created rectangle and placed icon inside with 10px offset from right side.
    2. Grouping rectangle with icon.
    3. Now I want to resize this group and save 10px offset, but this offset changes proportionally.

    I can easily do this in Ai using Direct Selection tool. So, add Direct Selection tool, please.

    You can direct select elements by holding CMD when clicking on items that are part of groups. Marquee selecting anchor points is landing very soon, so that you could select parts of your rectangle. Do you expect a different behavior? Did I understand your request right? Thanks for your feedback.
