  1. Build various animations within same artboard

    It would be great if we didnt' have to duplicate screen just to demonstrate an interaction within the same page (or artbaord). As an example.. I'd like to build a 'collapse" animation for a certain content section, but in the same artboard, I have another CTA that takes you to a different screen. In prototype mode, instead of building three pages for these two animations (one is an interaction within the same page and one is a transition to a different page), it'd be great if I only had to have 2 artboards vs 3.

  2. Export for web iOS and Android in one design spec

    We design and develop for web, iOS and Android and have recently made the switch to XD. I'd like the ability to publish a link with all three options in one file that the developer can select for themselves in the shared file as opposed to publishing three different files.

  3. Move the Share icon from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else

    Move the Share icon in the design mode from Top left corner to Top right or somewhere else, I am ending up creating too many unwanted links accidentally while trying to move the artboards around. I have to replicate the artboard and delete the original to get rid of an accidental link.

  4. To be able to edit layers on top of a locked one

    If I have overlapping layers and I want to edit one of them, I usually lock the ones I do not want edited/ to move. Using Illustrator, I can draw a rectangle and set it as my artboard background and work freely without it going anywhere. I can't seem to do this in Adobe XD.

  5. Drafts design separate organization

    Old designs isn't less important to us "Designers" from the final ones,
    as it is considered as an evidence about the product development with the process,
    But we too don't like to have a crowd work space with those old designs,
    so we need something like a separate folder named "Drafts" for example so that the workspace still clean and wide while we can return to our old design easily as well,

  6. Better/easier plugins layout

    Quick XD sketch:
    This is how plugins might be easier to use and switch between them (without forcing devs to update versions).

    This is more for non-popups plugins.

  8. Grid responsive in scale with objects/components

    The main issue I encounter is no matter which manual setting I set for responsive design the object does not scale proportionally with the column grid. So if the column with is 20px and the object is 20px when I made the object responsive and the board, the object will end up shorter than the gride so the pixel scaling is not proportionate to each other.

    I also use Figma, and in their app when you change the responsive width of the board the object resizes to scale with the columns, this is not the case with Adobe XD. This…

  9. Allow all states to be downloadable

    Hi

    If I have a dropdown that is collapsed when sharing my assets are not visible for download in the developers link. Not even if I expand the dropdown.

    If I instead have my dropdown as expanded when sharing generating the link, the assets are visible in the developers link – until I collapse the dropdown. Then they are unavailable.

    The assets should be available when the dropdown is open, whether it is done manually in the developers link or if the dropdown is expanded prior to generating the link.

    Thanks.

  10. Combine cloud share of working file with preview/dev links

    Feedback and working file links should be easily accessible in one place. Being able to work immediately without navigating outside of XD into email or search through the home tab for shared files will vastly improve efficiency.

  11. XD VS Code extension documentation markdown input improvements

    The markdown renderer has some bugs such as:
    - not soft-wrapping line breaks
    - not making naked urls clickable
    - no syntax highlighting for code blocks (e.g. ```js)

    Also the tags are not alphabetically sorted and can't be re-arranged.

  12. The incompatible problem of chinese text underline

    Why is the text underline function of xd always incompatible with Chinese characters? Do you think it is unnecessary to optimize for the Chinese? My version is 40.0.22.12 (Currently the latest).

  13. enable push / pull elements for components

    When I create a component with stages of different height (like an Akordeon that can be collapsed or expanded) I would like to be able to select "push / pull elements", so that when the stage of the component is changed to the expanded version, the elements that are visible below this component move down to make room for the expanded version
    Vice versa for choosing the collapsed state (the elements return to their original position).
    The space between the component and the elements below should stay the same.
    Axure has a feature like this and i really miss it,…

  15. Better AI file compatibility

    I would like you to improve ai file compatibility.
    Some objects are not come out properly.
    Such as vector brush/symbol set(sprayer)

    Converting them to a regular vector or a bitmap is ok since many features are not available in XD.

  16. Repeat grid doesn't respect auto height text in a group with stacks enabled

    In the table example shown below, the text element in the third column is set to auto height. All of the table cells are in Cell Group, which was then grouped with the horizontal line below Cell Group to create Row Group. Row Group has stacking turned on so that the horizontal line is always 16px below Cell Group.

    This is all well and good until Repeat Grid enters the picture. If I create a repeat grid from Row Group, set the grid spacing to 16px, then populate variable height content into Column 3, I get the mess shown in…

  17. Force a path into a shape so you can edit it like a shape.

    It would be be nice if there was a right-click option like "force path to shape." Paths do not have the edit options that shapes do.

    For example, when I take a rectangle and change the edges or add new corners, XD automatically changes this to a "path." I've done this both intentionally and accidentally.

    If I want to change this shape back to a rectangle so that I can edit the border radius, I have to redraw and restyle that shape from scratch. It would be really cool if Xd could identify the closest shape and force into that…

  18. this will be major improve on Adobe XD Prototyping and it will ease out all the process

    The idea is simple just follow this " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T41GcIXHf5o&list=LL&index=1 ". actually, someone can easily make this awesome design in ms PowerPoint in just a few minutes, we need those features simple timeline, those shape filling and customizing methods are just awesome. If you really need something better than Figma? just follow Ms PowerPoint tools features everything is there.

  19. Pre-Composed Animations

    When creating loading animations or other interactions that require multiple screens to prototype. What if those animations/screens can be pre-composed similar to how we can pre-compose in After Effects. This way, all the of the artboards that were used to create the animation can be consolidated into one board that can be linked to a button or other objects as an interaction.

  20. Choose which component states to upload to design spec

    I would like the option to exclude components states from components on the share link. Lately, I've noticed that creating a developer's share link is taking much longer to upload. And then when I go to the browser link, it takes much longer to load. I was trying to figure out why. And I think it may have something to do with the new(ish) ability to see all the states of a component when it is selected on the share link.

    A lot of times, I create a lot of component states just to be able to try out different…
