  1. 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.

  2. "Unlock" object

    To unlock a locked object on a layer, we have to go to Menu > Object > Lock

    It would be great it says "Unlock" if the object is already locked.

  3. Preview Breaks with multiple screen size heights

    I have three iphone 6 screens.

    Menu, Home, Content

    on the content screen I changed the height to (1,000px) the width on all three are 375px. On preview it breaks and trys to display the entire screen. By deafult I expected to have the screen scroll to show all the contents of that page. I did not expect it to try and show all the content. It took me about 30mins to realize what it was doing. And that I cannot have it scroll. This is not cool, need to be able to show this in all my previews.

    With the latest version you can scroll “long artboards” … We’ll be continuing to improve this feature add additional scroll related features (e.g. viewport scrolling), but for now I’m going to mark this as complete.

  4. slack integration

    For my team, this would be much better than just a dedicated in-tool comment system for getting feedback as this would make my prototypes more accessible to the whole team and company without the need for me to specifically send the link to select individuals.

  6. Shape/path Morph transitions

    Add the option to morph an element to another from a step to the next during transitions.
    For example a button in Step 1 can be linked in the prototype to a input field in Step 2. Then during the transition, AdobeXD should morph the button element to the input field.
    Both elements can be made with SVG assets, and morphed with the Gsock SVG Morph animation library.

  7. Allow to drop text file lists on repeated grid text elements like we drop images

    Allow to drop text file lists on repeated grid text elements like we drop images.
    For example a simple text file like this:

    Washington DC
    New York
    Miami
    Los Angeles
    Boston
    Seattle
    Cupertino
    ...

    can be dropped on any text label of a repeated element, and it would display each line entry as the text of the label of each repeated element in the same order of the text file.
    Also other file formats can be eventually supported: txt, csv, rtf, doc, xls, xlsx, odt, odf

  8. Keyboard interaction to trigger transitions

    I'd love to see the ability to transition between artboards by using the keyboard.

    For the UI, I'd place a keyboard icon just below the "set as home" icon. When you click it, you can see a list of current key transitions and a button to add a new one. When you click the new button, you have a box to enter the key to bind and then an arrow to link the artboard the key will transition to.

    It would be important to include the ability to link keys such as the arrow keys, space bar, escape key, etc.

  9. Flip vertical/horizontal

    I am trying to create icons in XD and want to make sure they are symetrical but there is no flip option in the edit menu.

    I tried to use the width, height and coordinates to do this but without guides, or the ability to unlock the ratio this does not work either

  10. Disable hotspot hinting & show "link" mouse cursor in places that don't link to anything

    In usability studies we need a way to drop fake hotspots that do not have to be linked, the reason that we need this is so that the user can click around more and hover over things to help the prototype not lead the user into clicking the item that we've enabled.

    If we could just drawing a hotspot and linking it on every single page of a flow is not idea and just being able to draw a hotspot and link it to nothing while activating the mouse hand to still go to a pointer will help our studies…

    Hi Everyone,

    We added a way for you to turn hotspots off on the web prototypes. You can now add “?hints=off” to your URL and no hotspots will show.

    In the future, we’ll add this option to the Share Online dialog, but, for now, you can just add the additional parameter to your URL.

    This request also includes some users who want us to turn off hand cursor changes. We did not do this when hotspots are off because we are unsure if this is really what people want. If your use case includes one where you want cursor changes off, please vote on this issue and make a comment:

    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/19766590-turn-off-cursor-changes-when-hotspots-are-off

    Let us understand your use case a bit better. Thanks!

  11. Full screen web prototype view on mobile browser (hide browser chrome)

    after i've shared a prototype URL then i view it on my phone, is there a way to disable browser UI when viewing the prototype on mobile device? can you tuck away the browser chrome? it is a bit fussy and annoying trying to tap through a native app experience when i keep having to scroll around to get rid of the browser chrome. it feels clunky.

    thanks so much! apologies if this is a duplicate, but i can't find similar request anywhere.

    Hi All,

    If the browser chromes are appearing over your artboard in the mobile browsers, then you can scroll up to dismiss the browser chromes.
    Please try it and let us know your feedback.

    Best Regards

  12. Click and drag to import individual assets from Ps & Ai

    Just the ability to be able to click and drag a layer or object across in Xd would be class.

    In the latest version of Adobe XD it is now possible to drag & drop layers from Photoshop into XD to import them. (You can also copy-paste).

    You can copy-paste individual assets from Illustrator into Adobe XD, though you can’t drag & drop them.

    That seems like enough to call this feature completed now. Please let us know if I’ve misunderstood what you’re asking for, though.

  13. Zoom to the top of selected artboard

    Description:
    When we press ⌘+0 XD zooms out to bird's-eye view. It would be useful to zoom back in to a selected artboard when press ⌘+1 or ⌘+2. But not to the empty grey back ground as it may happen now in the compositions like these (image attached).

    Why is this valuable to you:
    You will be able to switch between different artboards instantly. Even if they're more than 50. Vey easy to navigate and find necessary pages.

    Additional request:
    When zoom to a selected artboard, zoom not just to the center of it, but to the top side (image…

    feature-completed  ·  Tom Krcha responded

    You can now select the artboard and hit CMD+3 and it will zoom to the selected artboard.

  14. Different color for XD's application icon (magenta is too similar to InDesign)

    this feature is not very important but sometimes I'm getting confused with files. Indesign and XD have very similar icon/thumb color. How about changing it to something different? eg yellow – there is no yellow app in CC

  15. Share Online vs. Create New Link

    Version of Adobe XD: 0.5.0.4

    I created a Project and shared online -> everything works fine.

    But if i want to creat another Version of this Project, i am not able to create a new, differnt "online-Link"???

    Made following Steps:


    1. Open current Project

    2. Save as another Project / different Filename / same content

    3. Now there is no new "create Link Button" just a "Update-Link" Button

    4. Both Files are leading to the same "Online-Link"

    Working on one Projekt and save it will always overwirte the other existing Presentation.

    The only way is to Copy Paste all Grafix into a complete New…

  16. Multiple sharing links for different subsets of same file

    I´m designing for several screens at once and would like to be able to create separate links for the different screens. Eg one for desktop, one for tablet and one for phone. So that I easily can work on all the screens at once and don't have to change files.

  18. Drag-select multiple artboards

    I was in the middle of designing, and then realised that I needed to increase the length of a previous artboard and add in more data. Now to do that I first need to move all the artboards below it further down. But to that, I have to individually select each artboard to create a group - and then move them. This in my case meant selecting 20 artboards one by one. Doing this is a big pain, and often one wrong click lost all the selections. :( :( :(

    An easier way would have been to have drag-select action…

  20. Translucency blur effect

    It would be very handy to be able to apply a translucency blur effect like the native IOS one.
