  1. Identify text objects linked to character style

    Like the 'diamond' symbol you have for components, please add a symbol identifying characters that use a style from the library.
    Also, how do we unlink a text from a library-style?

    Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best when you file only one suggestion per ticket.

    I’ll keep this open for identifying the character style in the design. As for your question, you can change the text formatting in the property inspector to the right and automatically unlink it from the character style in your assets panel.

  2. Allow working off-the-cloud

    In my current context, working with Adobe XD is currently not a feasible option as using a cloud-only solution is against our security terms unless that cloud would be hosted on-premise.
    I would like Adobe XD to allow completely working off-cloud - so defaulting save to local save, as well as allowing exports to local file formats (PDFs, html...). If that is not an option, I would at least like to see an on-premise alternative, so that using Adobe XD is at least a viability to us.

  3. Upload XD document between profiles

    I try to upload an XD file to my business profile (first download it from my personal profile). Unfortunately it will give an error that only psd or ai is possible. But at this link it says that it is possible...https://helpx.adobe.com/nl/enterprise/using/move-assets-across-profiles.html. So I expect this is a bug? Can you resolve this? Thanks.

  4. Adobe XD 64-bit download link for Windows on ARM Surface Pro X (64-bit emulator)

    Like the Title says. I was able to run Adobe XD with Windows 11 on my Surface Pro X. I know that making an ARM version takes time but, in the meantime, please make the 64 bit version available in the Creative cloud app. Windows 11 (some windows 10 builds) now have 64 bit support for the ARM devices like the Surface Pro X.

  5. Developer App

    How about a free developer app? The current web developer handoff is already outdated. Due to Windows support, feature development is nonesistant. There have been few big feature updates since 2017. For designers it's fast and great. For everyone who works for designers, not so much.

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re constantly working on the web developer handoff surface, and it’s had some significant updates in the past couple of years. What do you specifically think you’re missing?

    By the way, we do have a large number of Windows users, so we do not intend to stop development on that platform.

  6. Show prototype links of child component states

    In prototype mode, I click through artboards to inspect the inbound and outbound connections. If I set a transition from a component's child state, the only way to see that connection is to activate the state. I would be extremely helpful (esp in large prototypes) if there were some indication of the child state link from the default state.

  7. Move Assets library into its own window

    Assets library MUST be in it's own window and within the component inspector as well!

    Adobe! you've been developing design tools for 30 years and all of them have unique windows for repeatable assets such as Type characters, paragraphs, symbols etc. Please move the Document Library outside the General Library pane! it takes three clicks to jump from one pane (mostly the Layers) to select a document asset.

  8. image export with stacks containing auto-height (creates transparency gaps in image)

    I often have to export modules/images for dev. This includes a text portion which I use auto height with padding. Then I have the elements stacked. If the objects aren't pixel perfect it leave a gap. 

    So for example:

    Vertical Stack 1: 50px height

    Vertical Stack 2: 50px height

    Vertical Stack 3: 50px height

    Exports completely fine because pixel are perfect.

    But if it's not pixel perfect

    Vertical Stack 1: 50px height

    (transparent gap)

    Vertical Stack 2: 51.2px height (because of auto-height element with text)

    (transparent gap)

    Vertical Stack 3: 50px height

    Anyway to fix this issue? Perhaps auto-height feature…

  9. Plugin for Elementor PRO Blocks

    Having a plugin where all the builder's blocks were built out would help our designers (that don't use WordPress) know what's available with the Elementor PRO builder, and could design accordingly. Not to mention it would speed up the creation of mocks if each block sections didn't have to be built piece by piece.

  10. BUG: When an image is placed in a rectangle with drop shadow, it can't be repositioned or resized

    BUG: When an image is placed in a rectangle with drop shadow, it can't be repositioned or resized—when double-clicking it just jump directly into editing the shape, and no image is shown in the layers panel.
    (XD 42.1.22.4 x64 Mac OS)

    Please fix this

    Hi Vlad,

    Thanks for the additional details. I was able to reproduce the issue and I have opened a bug to track this.

    Meanwhile a possible workaround here will be to convert the shape to a path, and after that the resize/reposition should work.

    Thanks,
    Corina

  13. Highlight All Downloadable Assets

    Highlight All Downloadable Assets in the document, and allow the user to keep them highlighted, and jump between them at 100% scale-view to see them close up, and make any one not-downloadable. The managemet of assets in XD in the current state not usable for professional design teams. It's too oriented to the individual designer only.

  14. Have a shared library for multiple XD files and have it set as the main library in a new document

    I work with clients and design partners from different companies and I use the collaboration tools extensively. I even had to call support to fix my device because the XD files were over 1GB and were crashing the software.

    Currently, I'm reaching the limit of the artboard size and want to share the library to new XD files in order to continue to contribute and grow the brand library of assets (as this is considerably smaller than the whole XD file).

    So, I would like to have the possibility to set a shared library in a new XD file as…

  15. Bind controller layouts

    Ofter when creating a prototype for console games, we need to set all the keys for EACH controller model, the prototype easily becomes a monster.
    What I propose is a tool where the designer can set the key equivalences for all controllers that work on adobe XD. In a way that if I set B on xbox one controller, I can set in a sheet, that we would have same behaviour on circle for play station 4/5, set the keys for xbox X, etc. This would be extremely helpful. I am sending you one picture of a feature prototype, that…

  16. Add the source XD filename to all shared links

    We have so many shared links that gets lost in a sea of chaos. Sometimes we are asked to edit links that we cant find the source file name for.

    REQUEST

    Add the source XD filename to all shared links so it's easy to find when asked to edit when the share link is all we have as a reference.

  17. Return to home artboard while in desktop preview

    As a user, when using Desktop Preview, I would like to go back to the beginning of a flow. Please allow Command-Return, just like what is used to start Desktop Preview, to return the user to the beginning of a flow.

  18. Choose if changes to default state rollout to other states

    When working with components, I sometimes have to make changes to the default state that I don't necessarily need in the other states, it would be nice to have the ability to choose if those changes roll out to the other states or not.

  19. Do not show Libraries panel when opening document

    The libraries panel is always shown when I open a file and it's a bit annoying. I wish this was collapsed by default, or even better have the program remember what my display looked like the last time I closed that particular file (for instance, if I had the layers panel shown when I closed a file, then when I open the file again that panel would show by default).

  20. Swap any object with a component

    I think XD should be feature like Renaming & Swap Symbol like Sketch & Figma. Where I can easily rename any selected component, layer, group or art board and easily swap symbol instead of drag and drop.

    Thanks for your feedback! You can currently rename components in the assets panel. You can already swap components by dragging any component over any other component instance to replace one component to another. I’ll change this suggestion to reflect that.
