  1. Export flowchart

    It would be helpful to have the ability to export all the pages and the connections between them as a flowchart.

  2. Prototype: Typing

    Woud be great to see typing function in the prototyping mode. It could be made by combining text boxes and components (By using states). This feature needs some advanced insights to be clearly sorted, but in live, we will use this functionality in our user test.

  3. Return the flow switcher please!

    After the latest updates I could not find how to switch the view of all screens from the grid to the flow in dev mode. That's too bad

  4. レスポンシブサイズ変更について

    レスポンシブサイズ変更のボタンはデフォルトで外してもらいたいです。

    レスポンシブデザインをおこなうときはとても便利ですが、
    画像やiconの縮尺を変える時も反応してしまい
    とても不便です。

    または、オフにするショートカットを作成して欲しいです。

  5. Prioritize color names over hex values in Design Spec

    Small detail, but as we define design system elements, the names of those elements are more important than the technical value.

    In this case, for colors, the name of the color asset is more important than the hex value. Please swap the display of those values to reflect the importance...or provide the ability to turn that hex value off since, in some cases, developers should only be referencing the name anyway.

  6. Provide ability to turn off CSS section in Design Specs

    In design specs, there is a CSS section with a lot of great information. However, for some users, it is relevant and potentially harmful. It'd be great to be able to turn that section off so that it isn't displayed.

    Some examples
    Some of our products are desktop products, built in C# and XAML. CSS is not relevant for our tech stack.

    The CSS shows absolute, hardcoded values for position, size, color, etc. This is the opposite of what we want to communicate to development. They should be using relative values or referenced resources from our design system for those…

  7. URL更新について

    URL更新がとてもわかりにくいです。
    デザインプレビューでお客様との確認を開発モードでコーダーさんとやりとりをしているつもりでしたが、デザインプレビューが更新されていただけで、開発モードは全く更新されていないということになってしまいました。

    URLの横のビュレットから選ぶなんてとてもわかりにくかったです。
    リンクをコピーだけ2箇所でできる必要はないと思います。

    仕様を変えるのでしたら、はじめにナビゲーションのメッセージが出るなどのアクションを起こして欲しかったです。

    とても使いやすくなっているので助かっているので残念です。

  8. Improvements needed in ASSETS panel for 'Character Styles' naming

    First of all thanks for the latests updates in November – they are great 🙌

    My team often struggles to find the needed character style in the assets panel. In the 'List View' you can give the fonts certain names; eg: H2 Titles 50/60 px.
    image: List View

    When we switch to the 'Grid View' (which portrays the components larger and thus more useful in that case), then the given name unfortunately disappears and only the font names are visible, which we can do very little with.
    image: Grid View

    It would be great to get this issue improved in…

  9. ability to choose how artboard layers are displayed (see all or just focus state)

    It would be great for the user to be able to choose how they want to view their layers—like sketch or like current XD. Let the user decided which works best for them. I like seeing everything, not just the artboard I am on.

  10. Drag and drop prototype by position

    So adobe xd can't make a drag and drop prototype like, I want to drag one card to another blank card container and drop it like one position drag and one position drop like drag and drop website builder UI.

  11. Export at 4x

    I know it’s not the primary usage for XD, but I was designing a little poster for a client in A4 and they suddenly changed their mind and wanted A3. I always export higher resolution, not just in print (using web export, which gives both 1x and 2x). So, since I wanted to have A3@2x, I had to manually copy the content and scale it up to a bigger art board. Thankfully there weren’t many changes in the poster after this but it got me thinking - it’d be neat if I could just export 4x of what I had…

  12. Improved Component State Performance

    Component states are awesome, but right now the size increase for a complex component is not scalable. After doing some testing, components appear to increase their size proportionally to the number of states.

    For example if I have a Default state, create a new state and move the components, say in a mask, to do an animation the size has now doubled. Then if I copy that to a new artboard, it doubles again, because both states get carried around. Therefore what originally would have been a master with an instance in 2 separate artboards with size 2X is now…

  13. Prototype interactions should allow both state transition and artboard transition

    Component states are great but ideally it would be better to allow an interaction to do both a state transition and an artboard transition.
    So an example would be a side nav with each element triggering a transition to a different page/artboard.
    I would like clicking on the link to change the component state (decorate it for example) as well as transitioning to the target artboard

    thanks

  14. change behavior of expanding group contents when group is hidden while sub-layer is selected

    When you have a layer within a group selected, then collapse the group and hide it, the group expands again.

    I understand the thought behind this would be to always show the selected layer in an expanded hierarchy, but during my workflow it seems very counter-intuitive and different from the way I have been accustomed to expect adobe products to behave.

    I would like to see this changed so when I have a layer selected within a group and I collapse the group and then hide it, the group stays collapsed with the group becoming the main selection instead of…

  15. Lock attributes between states

    When using states for controls, there is no logic in making each states a different size or label. It would save a lot of time and mistakes to lock some attributes that will always be identical between states.

  16. Component states to inherit interactions from master default state

    Component states should behave like component copy instances. This includes interactions to be copied to all child states. This is essential, for example, for a menu component in which each state is the active status of each menu item. But when I create new state it loses all interactions. Maintaining 5 states with 5 menu items becomes tedious.

  18. Increase zoom range for Design Specs

    The current zoom range for Design Specs goes up to 200%. For small items with intricate details or many parts, a larger max would be very helpful (800, 1600, etc.) for precise selection.

  20. Detach/float the layer panel

    I want to be able to undock the layer manager from the main Adobe XD window like in Photoshop etc. That way i can have Adobe XD on one monitor and the layer manager on the other one.
    This would increase the productivity by a lot, because you dont have to switch between the components and layers, but can have them both open at once.
