  1. Imperative Features to Combat Sketch Dominance

    I am long-time Sketch user. There are some things I love about Sketch that makes it a valuable UI / UX design tool that Adobe XD desperately needs!

    So far, I am LOVING Adobe XD and plan to continue to experiment with it. However, there are quite a few very necessary features that the XD team NEEDS to implement; especially for web developers.


    1. RULERS / GUIDES (the grid is nice, but I am very much missing rulers & guides)


    2. The ability to right click on text, an object made in XD, etc. and copy "CSS attributes."


    3. Photoshop, Illustrator, AE, PP,…

    These requests already exist in UserVoice – please upvote them to support these two ideas. Please note that text bold already exists. Your typeface will need to support different font weights in order to support bold.

  3. Share previews with the same size as the artboards

    Currently, the shared preview size is 120*120... It would be great to be able to share previews with the same size as the artboards so people have a full preview of it.

  4. First noticed (needed) functions....

    While some of these needs have been posted individually, I am posting a summary of needed functions. These missing functions get in the way every few moments...

    • Keyboard shortcut for eyedropper

    • Ability to create a symbol, where text can be changed

    • Ability to create a symbol that carries multiple states
    To explain, a navigation item that may have 3 states. You drag the symbol to the canvas, then select the state.

    • Ability to LINK symbols. So every time the canvas shows a navigation item, you do not have to always relink it. Every new screen requires…

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file one item per suggestion – it allows for others to upvote and helps us aggregate the feedback. All of the requests you have here are already filed, so you can just click on them and upvote:

  5. Top Features Needed

    I've been using XD for a while now and have been very satisfied with the beta version, although there are 3 top features that would substantially improve the application:


    1. Add the ability to pin certain objects to keep them from scrolling with the entire screen. For example, a navigation bar (header) or tab bar (footer) becomes static and does not scroll with the rest of the elements on the screen.


    2. Add a few application preferences, i.e.: default font (would be a huge time saver to not have to change to the desired font every time new text elements are added).

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file each idea separately, so that people can better upvote (and we can better merge). That being said, most of what you’re interested in has already been filed, so you can simply upvote and add your thoughts.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for filing this! As I mentioned in my last note, you should be able to view all shortcuts either in a context menu or while hovering over features that have shortcuts. If you’re still having problems, please do let us know!

  8. [Windows] Make the windows version the same as the Mac version.

    I think it's great that the people at Adobe are creating a tool that rivals Sketch, if not succeeds it. However windows users don't have access to that piece of software as it's exclusive to Mac computers. XD is the perfect solution for Windows users who want a prototyping/web design software like Sketch, but don't want to shell out a ton of money for a Mac computer.

    We are actively working on feature alignment between Windows and Mac and are releasing new features on Windows every month. The UserVoice database is best used at a more granular level, so if there are features you want to track, please search for them and upvote them to get more info when we release!

  9. shadows, shadows, shadows, shadows

    There are already a few requests about fundamental shadow implementation but seem to have gotten no attention. Without these in place it will be difficult to design today's interfaces in XD.

    First: Shadow spread - positive and negative.

    Second: Multiple Shadows on one object.

    Third: Shadow is clipped by object - so that if the object has transparency the shadow isn't showing through it.

    These are basic shadow capabilities on every other program and used daily by interface designers.

    Negative spread is key. It will allow us to create these (see attachment) types of shadows without workarounds and is supported…

  10. List of feature request

    Hi Adobe XD Team,

    I've been using adobe xd for a couple of days. I'm a UI/UX Designer based in Philippines and this product made me a lot easier to design web projects.

    I have few request base to my experience in using this product:
    Saving Status - When i'm saving my current project it so hard to distinguish whether my project has been saved or not.

    Prototype Scrolling - i have a design with a custom height for example i used web 1366x768 artboard but my current project is longer than the original height. so when i click desktop…

    Thanks so much for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you have individual ideas in each request. Many of these features have been requested already (and scrolling artboards just landed in the February release, which was released last week).

    Please upvote the following:

    Thanks again for your excitement! We hope to hear from you again soon.

  11. Add critical features to Mac version then focus on Windows

    I see that you've been updating the Windows version to bring it to par with the Mac version. But can you first add some critical features to the Mac version before going full-steam on the Windows?

    This way we'll at least have one platform with a strong set of basic features:

    a) Non-scrollable elements to fix a header or footer.
    b) Show/hide elements so that I can emulate a drop-down menu or a popup window without creating countless Artboards and super complex links.

    These features are on our roadmap already, so you should upvote them separately to let us know you’re interested. We’re working on ensuring that we can deliver on both platforms going forward, and there won’t be that much longer to wait until you see new features on Mac.

    Thanks for taking the time to file a feature request! Unfortunately, we asked for more information about six months ago and haven’t heard back. If you’re interested in specific types of UI kits, please do file them separately by platform or app type. Thanks!

  17. Advanced prototype

    you should make more prototype options... If you want this to be a great app look at some of the features in wix.com or ai2. I think like in ai2 you should use a block editor for anyone who wants to use it because it will open a lot of options. Also' look at all the wix features and see what you can add into the designing of this.

    Hello,
    I understand the scope of this app is to collaborate with the "conceptually challenged" but two days into creating interactive digital signage with Xd and I'm hooked! one problem though... outputting something tangible to run on a touchscreen kiosk or information booth (offline).

    I am not a Java/HTML guy. I'm a "dyed in the wool" Video/motion GFX guy so having a tool that will allow me to deliver GUIs without coding creates a great new revenue stream. This tool is very close, just needs a tweak.

    While I'm asking...
