  1. Option to disable zoom animation

    Currently, zoom animation takes really long. I am used to pretty fast zooming in Photoshop and Illustrator - just one scroll of a wheel and you immediately are where you want to be.
    I think I am not the only one, thus an option to disable this long transition would be great.
    Also, there would be no need for blurring effect while zooming because there wouldn't be any redundant frames to render.

    Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best if you file each one of your suggestions separately so that we can help merge them correctly. That being said, some of your suggestions already exist and can be upvoted.

  3. XD Feedback: hard to select and group/ungroup and scroll

    Here is my feedback from using XD for a day.


    1. You can't really figure out how to do anything without reading the tutorial. The main issue is scrolling. Needs to be more intuitive. I nknow scroll bars aren't in vogue, but that would make it possible for people to scroll. Using a large screen external monitor and mouse, you don't have touch and the touchpad isn't as convenient.


    2. Selecting elements of compound objects is REALLY HARD. You can either click about 100 times until you get it, or zoom way in, click a smaller number of times, and then scroll…

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when each feature request is split up into a separate feedback session, so that others can upvote. We appreciate the confusion, and hope you found that:

    1. Mousewheel support for scrolling exists, similar to our other tools
    2. Ctrl+Click will direct select objects inside groups
    3. Group and ungroup are accessible in the context menu (right click)

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  4. embed the

    Thank you very much for releasing embedding on external websites. it's really cool and helpful to show use the same prototypes in my portfolio.

    I need to have few functions for the iframe.
    1. Ability to fullscreen
    2. Next and previous screen,
    3. View it on your device button show up a QR Code where user can view the app full screen on their device.

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult for us to split up the feedback into specific feature requests, so it would be great if you could file each one of these separately so that we can address them. That being said, it might be difficult for us to do these things within our iframe, as the commands you’re asking for need to be done in the parent HTML, not in the iframe. (Basically, you’ll need to do it on your side; it’s not something we can do on our side.)

  5. Prototype Spaghetti

    This is not really an idea.. But the strong request to -fix- the prototype view. This is just mind boggling.

  6. Symbols in Windows 10

    I was very excited when the latest update to XD added the Symbols feature. But I was very disappointed with the functionality of the same. These are a few suggestions I have that I would like to see in the Symbols panel!


    1. Organization: There should be a way to name and organize symbols. As f now the symbols are names as 'Symbol 1', 'Symbol 2' , etc,. and their copies come up as 'Symbol 1- 1', Symbol 1- 2', etc. It would be great to be able to name the symbols so that i can see their names in the…

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you separate out each one of your requests instead of lumping them all together. You should also search and upvote for existing ideas that match your own.

    For instance:

    Hope that helps!

  7. Support for "Fill" in transparent images (Windows)

    Downloading transparent icons and then importing them to Photoshop just to change the color of it is just annoying.Especially when you have 4 gigs of ram.

    Adobe pls.

    As we requested information three months ago and never received a response, I’m marking this request as inactive. If you’re still interested in seeing this in Adobe XD, please do file a new request.

    Thanks,

  8. Improvements

    I am a constant user of XD and I love and bet on it but I miss a better text tool like Indesign. It should also be able to edit links directly in other CC software, as Indesign does. And I've never been able to use the library to work and export the assets correctly to the developer, that should be easy, to integrate design and development more quickly, as in Sketch APPs or software like webflow. Another point is to think about how to work the microinterinterations and animations of the direct interfaces in XD. And lastly work responsive…

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file individual requests instead of all lumped together in one request.

    You should definitely search for some of the improvements in the database, as many of them already exist. For instance:

    As for your issue with exporting assets, you might want to check out this article I wrote about exporting assets in XD. https://medium.com/thinking-design/protip-exporting-assets-in-adobe-xd-c586996de703

    Hope this helps!

  9. Copy paste using alt+shift

    Hey guys what happened to this function. Every time I use the shift + alt combo to copy paste an item, the item moves. It doesn't duplicate anymore.

  10. Show numbers of art boards as they would appear within the prototype in the XD design workspace

    When working on designs within the XD program and a client references a page within the prototype by number, you have no way of knowing, instantly, which page within the XD design space they're talking about as the art boards don't have the numbers showing. Please can numbers be present in the title. If will make it easier to remember what pages to link to when in prototype mode along with the aforementioned reference issue between prototype and XD Design space.

  11. Updates have been in the pipeline too long, specifically grids and interactions

    We have been requesting these two basic things from the beginning, yet still we wait.

    1) Layout grids, and ability to align them with css frameworks
    2) Interactions, anything more than a slideshow would be great!

    Both of these are on our radar and are actively being worked on. I’m guessing you already upvoted both of them, so you’ll know that we’ve marked Layout Grids as started. Improved interactivity is also something I’m personally working on, so there’s definitely movement in the area as well! That’s a little more complex, but we’re making progress!

  12. Better Font Selector

    When using/selecting a font, use the selector dialog similar to that of Photoshop and Illustrator, just for convenience.

  13. advanced artboard focus features

    With just a keyboard and mouse the way to switch between artboard focus is very clumsy (alt+ scollwheel on mouse). I took me ages to figure this navigational feature out to begin with. And haven't found another way to manipulate the canvas (without touchpad or trackpad). Would be great to either have scroll bars on the canvas or short cuts to switch artboard focus:

    Suggestions:
    - Scroll bars on canvas
    - Cmd-Arrow - to switch focus to the nearest artboard in that direction

    The Cmd-scroll wheel just doesn't work and slows down workflow considerably.

    Kind regards,

  14. More tool such as Photoshop

    I'd like to have more tool and options that I usually find in Photoshop such as using gradients, creating styles and text styles. Most of all I'd like to create guide lines and guide lines layout, so that I could create my project only in Adobe XD.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one suggestion per submission. The good news is: all of these requests are already in our database. You can upvote here:

    Also, linear gradients are already available on the Mac – you can drop down “Solid” from the color picker for object fills and select “Gradient.”

  15. [Mac] Copy and Paste Design From Photoshop

    it would be really GREAT if we can copy from PSD and paste it on XD.

  16. I have notice that the Mac version has more features then windows 10 version.

    I have notice that the Mac version has more features then windows 10 version. how about a menu tool bar.( I saw some guy using gradients and he got it from the tool bar area ) would like to have layers panel like in photoshop and gradients, guides, exact for XD like Brackets use to have :( . I would like for Adobe XD to be way better than sketch app for Mac's if you could make XD have features like sketch app that would kill it. Keep up the solid work – you guys are changing the way we…

  17. Interaction features

    Too bad there's no way to really create interactivity in Xd. It's basically a layout editor for static mockups. No CSS support, no typography styling, link styling, no script support, no direct html, java or anything. Can't implement live WOF setups or prototype actual events like drop-down menus, video players, live Google maps demo etc. In Axure you can do all this and more, makes Xd seem like a very limited tool. Great for fast layouts but not really a prototyping tool for autentic scenarios.

    We have some requests in the database already for increased interactivity features (which are on our roadmap!). You can help us prioritize by upvoting the features you need the most. For example:

  19. Important features to implement

    Hi Adobe XD,

    I am missing important features such as:


    1. Single object animations (protopie uses this and is extremely nice)


    2. Windows needs to be speed up to use the same amount of features as Mac OS.


    3. Import videos aswell as pictures and being able to control these. (protopie also uses this)


    4. More prototype features when moving from one side to another.


    That is it from now. I will update this frequently when ever I stun upon missing features or something else.


    • Have a nice day

    Thanks for your feedback! All of these suggestions are already in the database, and you should upvote them separately. Just in general, it’s better to suggest one idea at a time so that we can merge them in manually.

    Here are the stories you should upvote:

  20. Have all interactive gestures beside click

    Allow all of the javascript events besides click. One should be able to be mouseover, mouseout, double click, right click, hover, swipe left/right, swipe up/down, pinch/zoom and touch events to work on desktop and mobile (tablet, smartphone) along with watch and smart tv.
