  1. Windows version of Adobe XD

    It really need to be available on Windows as that is a major OS used especially at work.

  3. Underline text

    You can easily make text bold or italic in XD, but not underlined. There should be an Underline style or toggle button for creating designs with links, etc.

    You can now underline text in the December release of Adobe XD. If you’re interested in improvements to the underline feature (like adjusting the distance between the underline and the baseline), please do feel free to file that as a separate ticket!

  4. Center justify text block

    In addition to left, right and centre aligned text I would love to see a (center) justify text align option. At the moment importing center justified text from AI does not perform as expected. I feel that is because that type of alignment is not supported by the XD software.

    Basically I would like the same text alignment options as Illustrator (the advanced alignment options included!)

    We have center justification for text areas already!

    If you’re interested in full justification, please upvote this story: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/16278061

    If you’re interested in upper case, please upvote the text transform story: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13717794

    If there’s a specific issue with text copy and paste from Illustrator, please do file it as a specific issue.

    Thanks!

  5. Show all available screens to navigate in shared prototype (map / overview of all artboards)

    I would like for there to be a way to display all available screens in the prototype. Currently the web view is good for presenting but not good for users who are not clear on what the flow is. Providing a way to jump around these screens would be incredibly helpful.

  6. Rename file from window title bar

    It would be useful to be able to rename the file by clicking on the filename at the top header of the window, rather than having to find it and do it in finder

    (On Mac this is standard)

  7. Clipping Mask

    The current implementation of "masking" is missing a key feature... clipping masks.

    I've attached a file to help give a better understanding of what I'm referring to. Thanks!

  8. clipboard

    Clipboard fails between XD and other apps—including Ai—however it works within itself.

    Please fix this so that there is a good integration and ability to copy something to the clipboard from XD and paste it in another app.

    In the July release, you will be able to copy bitmap images of any selected elements or artboards. This will allow you to:

    1. Copy artboards directly to presentations or specs built in apps like Powerpoint, Keynote, Google Docs, etc.
    2. Copy any other elements into docs for presentations (raster)
    3. Copy bitmaps and paste them into PS for quick edits and the copy/paste them back to XD.

  9. Regular Polygon Tool (triangle, octagon, star, etc.)

    The ability to create polygons, such as Triangles (most important), Pentagons, Stars, Hexagons.

    Hi everyone,

    I’m glad to announce that the polygon tool is now available with the XD 19 release. You can create a variety of shapes from triangles, pentagons to polygons with any number of sides, change corner radius or auto-animate the shapes in your prototypes. We also have plans to add the star shape in an upcoming update.

    You can learn more about the polygon tool and our May release here: https://theblog.adobe.com/xd-may-2019-update-create-design-systems

    Enjoy and let us know your feedback!

    Best,
    Dan

  10. Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

    Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

    Hi everyone,

    I’m glad to announce that the text uppercase, lowercase and title case transformations are now available with the XD 19 release.

    Pro Tip: You can apply the transformations to characters styles and make global updates across the document.

  11. Override text or image fill on a specific instance of a reusable symbol

    NOTE: originally this request asked for the ability to override many different styles, not just images and text. If you want to override other styles, please upvote:

    Symbol overrides are now available! Download the June release of XD today to get access to bitmap and text overrides (as well as the Apply command, which will apply your changes from the selected symbol to all other symbols).

    If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon and select “Check for App Updates.”

  12. Maintain page scroll position when moving between screens

    When previewing prototype need to be able to maintain page scroll position between screens to support interaction and animation behaviours (in Preview).

  13. Web Preview mode isn't 1:1 resolution / scale

    The shared preview mode (link) is not 1:1 size matching the artboard resolution (f.e. like invision), but in smaller size and cannot be adjusted, so client cannot see the original scale and details of larger (long) websites... Maybe it's not a bug, but a missing feature, but I would not mind if you just copy invision in this:))

  14. Customize rectangle corners separately

    You can currently round corners of squares by clicking and dragging to your desired radius. I wish I could:
    1. only round certain corners (ie, only 2 not all 4)
    2. enter the exact radius I want (used to be able to do that easily in the right panel, but that option has disappeared)- would be beneficial for handing off files to developers

  15. Speed up prototype links (as of preview 2)

    Since preview 2 (apr edition) prototypes are taking a fair bit longer to load.

  16. Preview on Browser

    Hi there,

    The user should have the ability to see the mockup prototype on Browsers or other devices. This kind of feature would be an effective addition for desktop designers and mobile designers alike.

    Nowadays, we are only able to preview on the a mobile device screen size, which is useless for desktop or even other device design.

    Thanks

    Closing this issue due to inactivity on an open query. You can already preview a web artboard in full screen mode, which gives you as much real estate as you have on your screen. If there’s something specific you’re looking for, please do file a separate idea in the system!

  19. Display names of Asian-language fonts/typefaces that language (Korean, Japanese, Chinese)

    Dear Adobe XD.
    It is a very big part of working in international Web design that the design tool support all font's.
    It means that I also need the name in original langues.
    Photoshop, ondesign and illustrator can do it but i can't find any way in XD

  20. Button tool - style text box with border, background color, padding (auto resized when text changes)

    To speed workflow it would be good to have button tool in the sidebar. In the property inspector you'd have the ability to specify the top,bottom, left and right padding. the width of button would dynamically resize as you type the button's label.
