  1. Auto-scroll when working on the canvas (selection, duplicating)

    You could just zoom out to select larger areas, but I think this is a usability issue. When zoomed in, in photoshop for example, you can drag a marquee selection off the window and it will scroll to follow the mouse. I would expect a similar action to take place here, as some mobile pages can get very long.

  2. XD file shared to Creative Cloud is not very useful yet

    When your XD file synces automatically to CC Cloud files it is in a unreadable format. Taking up space while unusable. Please fix this or just don't have them sync. I realize easier to share on another computer with XD on it but I don't think it should be the default to automatically share unless it shared as a JPEG at the very least.

  3. Easier way to toggle grid on/off

    This may be small but takes a lot of time up: I switch between seeing the grid and not seeing a lot. In XD I have to click on the artboard name for the grid show/hide shortcut keys work. Would be awesome if these would work anywhere in design mode.

  4. Find Artboard, Layer, or Text

    I just noticed that sometimes its hard to find artboards, text, layers if you have a large prototype pages in your project. I think it would be nice to have a search function like the photoshop layers that has the ability to search through layers,styles,text,layer names and more. Maybe some "solo"(after effects feature) feature as well to show only the page that you are working on.

    Closing this one as we’ve delivered search and filtering options for layers panel a while ago.

    If you’re experiencing any issues with the current feature, please let us know in a comment or in a separate request.

    Best,
    Dan

  5. Text Character Level Colors

    I have the need to change the color of the characters in a line of text. For example, there is a link in a paragraph. The link only should be blue.

    Should be able to do alpha on the text characters also.

    I see that we have size and font style, but color is the most practical of all these.

  6. Show color RGB / RGBA value

    In our development, the programmer needs to use the RGB value to label the color, but in this update,the version removed the RGB color information, we have to need for an additional conversion to get the results.

  7. Drag and Drop Artboards from PS/Sketch to Import into XD

    It would be great if XD could have an Extension that works with Sketch and Photoshop to export Artboards to XD - like you would do with Zeplin or Proto.io

    The ability to import the exported dartboards into XD with all the assets sliced, imported and placed in their original/correct position, all groups and layers are preserved just like they were in the original design app.

    This would be a massive time saver and speed up our workflow hugely

    Hi everyone,

    In our March release we’ve released the ability to open Photoshop & Sketch files in XD. After reading this thread, i think that feature is covering what was originally requested here.

    Can you try it out and let me know if this is what you need?

    How it works:
    You can bring your Photoshop or Sketch files into XD by simply opening a PSD or a .sketch file with the CMD-O command or by selecting “Open” from the “File” menu. Your file will automatically convert into a new XD file with your artboards, layers, and assets editable and at a high fidelity.

    You can find more details about March release here:
    https://theblog.adobe.com/march-2018-update-adobe-xd/

    Let me know your feedback.

    Thanks,
    Dan

  8. Zoom Current Artboard to Fit (or to 100%)

    Currently, Cmd-0 fits the entire XD set of Artboards into view. It would be nice that if an Artboard is selected, the same command will fit THAT Artboard into the view (similar to InDesign, where there are 2 commands, one for Fit All and one for Fit Page/Spread, but needing only one keyboard shortcut for both, purely dependent on what you have selected or not.

  9. Saving color palettes - shared across documents or users

    I want to have a consistent set of swatches, with the ability to import saved palettes or to share/export a palettes. It would be nice to have access to multiple palettes as well

    Hi Everyone!

    We’re excited to announce that with XD May release, you could now create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    To learn more about this feature check out:
    letsxd.com/whats-new
    helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/linked-assets.html

    Please give it a try and let us know what…

  10. Guides

    An ability to drag out persistent guides to an artboard and have other objects snap to it

    I’m happy to announce that starting today, with the latest update, Artboard Guides functionality is part of XD!

    Creation is very simple, you can simply point to the top and left of any artboard, click and drag to create guides.

    You can check how Guides work in a short video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnalFtR2KMA ) or check out Adobe XD’s help pages to see all the details of the feature (https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/artboards-grids.html#custom-artboard-guides).

    Happy designing!

  11. View and share design prototypes at actual size

    The full-screen feature is nice but I need to be able to show clients what my designs will look like at actual size on the web. The prototypes need to be displayed at the size they are designed at. This is the one feature that would justify me switching from using InVision for my prototyping.

    You can now choose the zoom setting in the shared prototype. By setting it to 100%, you’ll be able to see the screen at the designed zoom level, regardless of the viewport. If you have additional feature requests, please feel free to file them as new tickets!

  12. Copy and paste from other CC apps

    I'd like to paste objects such as custom shapes from AI and PS (maybe other apps, too). I usually use this feature AI -> PS. For XD, would be perfect to transfer any psd file into xd file.

    It is now possible to copy from AI/PS and paste into XD.

    If there are specific problems or missing pieces of that workflow, please let us know by filing new suggestions for each individual problem. (Note: some are already filed, such as: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12868956-import-photoshop-vector-objects-as-editable-vector)

    Copying from XD and pasting into AI/PS was also mentioned here, originally. I’ve removed that bit from the title since it’s already separately tracked in https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13118382-copy-from-xd-paste-into-illustrator-or-photoshop — please upvote that suggestion if copy-pasting in this direction is important to you.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  13. Windows version of Adobe XD

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

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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)

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
