  1. Two small ting guides and the Adode CC Libraries will be som of the greatest things to have in Adobe XD

    Having the Adobe CC Libraries in Adobe XD will be like pulling XD having a direct line in to Illustrator and Photoshop. And Guides every designer loves guides i really really miss guides in XD.

    And en extra thing ;-) Photoshop generator in XD to export out all the small bits.

  2. Advanced Design

    I think this app should be almost the same as muse but an output as an app' not a webbsite and add scratch like blocks like there are in ai2.

  3. 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.

  4. Windows version to be on par with Mac version

    It would be great if the Widows version was on par with the Mac version instead of half a year behind.

  5. There is the function that I want.

    There is the function that I want.
    1. I want a function to perform data conversion to photoshop and an illustrator.
    When I brush it up by WEB production, it is easy to use it.


    1. I distribute a layer and am considered to be it, and I want to be separated by letter data, image data.
      When it uses it as XD, this is because the image data cuts it when divided with data and image data to make a letter in png and is available in WEB.

    These are great ideas! Unfortunately, it becomes very hard for others to upvote and for us to merge if there are multiple requests in one UserVoice idea. I believe at least one of these ideas are in your suggestion:

    Please note that we have just added the pinned comments feature, which I believe is your third suggestion.

  6. Hello, I understand the scope of this app is to collaborate wit

    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...
    Scrolling regions of text. (I saw in another post you…

  7. Picture Animation Features

    I'm a web designer. This app is great for me to layout previews to their website without having to code it then make change which is a nightmare. Well done guys, you are changing the game!

    I'm wondering if it's possible if you could add animated features over images, which help liven up the design. Features like:


    • Parallax Scrolling

    • Zoom over hover

    • Saturation Effect over hover

    • Banner Changes (image rotation over a set timing)

    • Video Background Play

    • GIF support

    I hope this helps!

  8. font

    Styling fonts seem to be very limited in XD which is a shame because I love everything else about it. Not asking for anything crazy, but simply to add the same text box feature in Illustrator to XD.

    The feature I'm talking about is the ability to easily change a line of text to a text box by double clicking in AI. Having that same feature in XD will help with my wireframing SO much.

    Also, the ability to easily shrink or enlarge type. Right now I can only enlarge texts NOT in a text box. When it's in a…

    Regarding the first issue, you should upvote this: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13615449 (ability to switch between area and point text). The second issue – you should be able to change a section of your area text by highlighting the text in edit mode. Check out the documentation here (click on “Format text” in the navigation to scroll to the right area): https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/help/text-tools.html

  10. Please make this a viable and fully usable Adobe product, not a shell of what it could be.

    Symbols not being on Windows first release. UI Kits being left out of the same, as well as layers panel and launch screen. The fact that individual items in a symbol (for navigation and menus for example) can not be individually linked to separate places...and that option having the ability to toggle for global or individual editing... is absurd.

    The benefits for using Adobe products...are that they behave like and interact with other adobe products. So far, this is only happening an a fairly limited basis. :/

    The more I play with this...the more I'm considering buying another Mac and…

    Definitely appreciate the sentiment behind this, but I’m closing this suggestion as a general one. We’ve seen a lot of features roll in over the past two years. Please do upvote ideas that are specific to your needs so that we can better prioritize!

  11. Windows Features

    Adobe hello, please, the following features that improve the functionality of Adobe XD
    1. First, please, add the FTP function in the export menu. The finished project should be able to send assets to FTP server.
    2. It will be useful to greater choice of visual effects transition elements such as animation hiding bar, push effect. Every element loaded on Website Design should be an additional transition settings.
    3. Please add blur effects, and the possibility of cutting elements, as the case OSX.

    Best reagrds to all Team :)

    Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one request in each entry, not multiple. As Joan mentioned, we recently shipped blur effects.

    Please feel free to upvote the following for your other requests:

    I’ll file a separate story to track the FTP request and add the original poster as a voter.

  12. It is necessary to add a dividing line function.

    I am using Adobe Xd on Windows OS.

    I changed Photoshop to Adobe XD and it is very inconvenient because there is no dividing line and ruler function.

    I also want to show the size in real time when creating the object.

  13. Robust Color Picker & Swatches

    Currently I'm only able to select colors based on HSL and Hex #.
    • Ability to use RGB color sliders.
    • Ability to see swatches as more than just a thumbnail if needed (ie: Small List, as this would be helpful when you have many color of similar hue).
    • Ability to import/save swatches.
    • Ability to edit a saved color/swatch.
    • Global Swatches (So if I need to edit a specific global swatch, all elements on the canvas will be updated).
    • Adobe Color Themes implementation (ie: Adobe Kuler)

    (Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

  14. Type Editing features (ie: Like InDesign)

    Currently the type editing features in XD are bare-bones. InDesign has possibly the best type editing in any layout program. It would be great if XD can implement and borrow some of InDesign's type editing features:

    • Text Frame inset (This can be considered padding)
    • Vertical Alignment within a text frame
    • Superscript & Subscript?
    • Baseline Shift?
    • Underline
    • Ability to turn paragraph text into point text, and vice versa. (This is more like Photoshop)
    • Ability to use more than one color in a text frame
    • Ability to use more than one type size in…

    Most of these ideas are already in our database, so it would really help if you could upvote those individual features.

    Color, type, and styles editing within the text box will come in a future release of XD for Windows, as we’re not quite at parity yet with the Mac client.

  15. Once a change is made, allow to "update-link" without closing document

    I am able to open a file and make changes, then update the LINK under sharing.

    However, after making another change, there is no option to "update" the link. I have to close the file and re-open to update the link with those changes.

    My suggestion is each time the user clicks the "Share" button, to have the file check and see if any changes have been made. If so, allow to update-link. If no changes are seen, then gray it out until a change is made.

  18. Integration or exportable to developer code

    Once the prototype is completed, allow the option to be integrated into the final solution or exported into the developers code, same as Visual Studios Blend.

    Some options would be nice to have would be python, C++, C#, HTML, etc..

  19. Prototyping improvements needed

    I've got over a hundred views on multiple projects. For this issue whenever I segue any elements during prototyping the list name of the views which comes up is not alphabetized. This becomes very cumbersome to find the exact name of the view I need to segue which is a real hassle and as a result wastes a bit of time.
    Also it would be a great time saver to be able to segue the same elements found on multiple views. For example if I want to segue an add button to a particular view and this elements appears on…

    Thanks for your feedback! We prefer that the inputs to UserVoice be granular so that people can upvote specific issues. I see three requests in this idea, two of which are already submitted. Please do upvote these:

    The third one seems to be a bug, as our arrange feature should work when prompted. Please note that there may be objects that were drawn or placed in the middle of your Z-order. You might want to open the layers panel (Cmd-Y) and see if your object is actually moving up and down when you use the keyboard shortcut methods.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

  20. Repeat grid across 2 or more columns

    I have a 2 column grid of portrait photos, but the images that I select for 'Repeat Grid' only populate one of the columns instead of both columns. It would be really nice if the photos repeated i.e. from left to right, top to bottom.
