  1. Right Click

    There is no Right Click Option, which would be useful, especially for the "Make Repeat Grid" Feature

  2. Import/Open Sketch files

    I would like to transition from Sketch to XD, but with so many clients files created in Sketch, I would need an easy way to open the Sketch files in XD and save them as native XD files.

    Hi everyone,

    Happy to announce that we’ve just released this feature!

    You can bring a Sketch file into XD by simply opening it with the CMD-O command or by selecting “Open” from the “File” menu. It automatically converts into an XD file with your artboards, layers, symbols, and effects ready to use.

    You can find more details about March release here:
    https://theblog.adobe.com/march-2018-update-adobe-xd/

    We’re continuing to improve this feature, so expect even more in the upcoming releases. In the meantime, check what’s currently supported here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/open-sketch-files-in-xd.html

    Let us know your feedback.

    Cheers,
    Dan

  3. Spell Check

    Spell check please! Much needed for someone who sometimes glances over simple spelling errors

    You can now use spell check in the September release of XD! If you can’t see the update, select … from the Creative Cloud desktop application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you have additional suggestions for this feature, please file a separate request!

  4. Support game controller navigation

    There are many applications where the interface is navigated with input devices like game controllers. It would be great if we could get some support for these.

  5. Generate specs / measurements / style guide for developers

    What definitely needed in the Design community is to ease the design-development delivery-review phase. To unload both of the sides.

    A lot of different platforms, tools, plugins were meant to do that and none of them is fully unloading and simplifying that process.

    PNG Express, Specking, Avocode, Markly, Zeplin, Craft, Marketch etc...

    I believe there is a need in having some specifications delivery service, styleguide generating service.

    Specs:
    + Measuring distance from text line height (because that's how developers do), not font size.
    + Ability to adjust the UI on the go with automatic sepcs changing
    + Ability to select…

    We’re pleased to announce that our Design Specs feature is now available as a Beta in our November release. You can read more about it on our announcement blog post here: https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/november-update-of-adobe-xd/

    The Design Specs feature is just the first step for us in this space, and we’re looking for your feedback on the feature. In order to focus on the feedback, we’ve created a new feature area that you can target when you file new ideas: 09 Design Specs. Please remember that you should file one idea per submission, so that we can better aggregate your feedback.

  6. Blend Modes

    It would be awesome to have blending modes in the sidebar.

  8. Ability to hide objects

    Would be nice if objects could be temporarily hidden.
    Similar to illustrator.
    cmd+3 hides an object
    cmd+alt+3 unhides an object.

    That would make selecting other surrounding objects an easy task.
    It also works nicely if the user wants to focus on a specific area without being distracted by other elements

    Hi, all-

    We’ve introduced the ability to hide objects with the Layers panel in our November release. However, we understand that some of you want more advanced control for hiding and showing objects. Given that there are a number of different potential directions we could take this, we’d love to hear your thoughts in new ideas in UserVoice. I’m closing this idea as completed for now.

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  11. General API for Extensions: Layers, Groups and Elements

    I would very much like to see at least a general API that gives me access to the full object hierarchy in an XD project - artboards, group, layers, elements and their properties - along the lines of the sketch API current specification

  12. Full screen support on OS X

  13. Enable timed transitions (not triggered by user interactions)

    Enable timed transition, something triggered by timing and not by user interactions (e.g. a notification from a server or a splash screen going away in a couple of seconds).

  14. Sharing Prototype in a closed network

    Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?

    This functionality is now available for a limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise. While offline publication is available, current and future sharing and collaboration features will be restricted. The full product functionality and experience in XD is available only when XD uses Creative Cloud services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Adobe account team for more information!

  15. Responsive artboards / adaptive layout constraints for resizing

    Similar to Edge Reflow, it would be great to have the ability to prototype responsive design ideas with a fluid, flexible canvas. Web designers need a good tool for this there really isn't anything out there to test out responsive design solutions.

    Hello,

    With last week’s update of XD, we introduced Responsive Resize – a way to easily resize your elements as you adapt them to different screen sizes. This should massively speed up your workflow.

    Download the latest version of XD to give it a try, and check out a 3 min overview of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKvg8_8jv10&t=2s

    Look forward to hearing what you think!

    You can now change the position of the border along the stroke for closed paths in the December release of Adobe XD! Check it out, and let us know what you think. If you’d like to see additional improvements to this feature, please feel free to file it as a separate ticket.

  17. Export to JPG (JPEG)

    We often send clients JPGs to show them the design, would be good to be able to export individual/all artboards (like in illustrator).

  18. Tap/Hover Effect
