  1. Trigger with PC keyboard

    I would like to use a PC keyboard as a trigger to make prototypes of products using hardware switches.

    By using USB devices you can use various switch parts.

  2. Keyboard Shortcut for Eyedropper

    Please add a shortcut for the Eyedropper. From the document listed here: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/keyboard-shortcuts.html there doesn't seem to be one at the moment.

    Thank you.

  3. Search for keywords in plugin manager

    Would love to be able to search for keywords in the plugin manager (i.e. "icons", "data") so finding related plugins will be easer.

  4. Working with Illustrator and Xd

    Hi, I can't believe how there's 0 sync with Illustrator. I design all my screens there as it is more useful than Xd tools but I can't export them to it. I tried SVG and PSD but didn't work as I wanted. Why isn't so simple as draggin the elements as I always do from Ai to Ps or viceversa? Please, this would be a really useful feature, hope you consider it.

  5. Linked Character Styles and Colors across documents

    I really liked the new October 2018 update where you have Linked Symbols across multiple files, especially when you made a source file.

    I would like to also have this ability for character styles as I have many websites that all need to share the same UI style guide. I often change my mind about the font size, colour, line spacing and etc.

    If I had this, then making a source file that links with multiple design files will make life so much easier to manage. Without having to go to each file and update...

    Hi Everyone!

    With XD May release, now you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    To learn more about this feature check out:
    letsxd.com/whats-new
    helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/linked-assets.html

    Please give it a try and let’s us know what you think

  6. More supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes

    Please provide more supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes. I think that this is a fantastic feature.

  7. Adobe XD for Jira Server

    Great Adobe XD for Jira is available. But only for Jira Cloud version. Does this plugin will be available for Jira Server version? It would be great !

    Mask with Shape already exists! You can access it using the context menu if you have two objects selected, or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+M.

  9. Disable swiping on mobile prototype

    Please provide an option to disable swiping between artboards during the Live Preview on the Adobe XD iOS app. I want testers on the mobile app to only be able to navigate using the interactions I've authored. Them being able to swipe at any time prevents me from getting a valid test out of them.

  10. Design Specs link - Display unique Typographic Specs within one textbox

    See attached Screenshot for reference;

    If a designer has set up multiple fonts / weights / sizes within one textbox, the design specs link can only read one spec per textbox. This forces the designer to change their workflow by setting up every heading/ paragraph etc. within a new textbox, to allow the developer to read all the specs.

    We need to be able to see the unique specs for typography (font name, weight, size etc) wether or not it's set up in one textbox.

    Also for example, suppose I have one sentence in which only two words are bolded,…

  11. Responsive Resizing of Symbols

    The new responsive resize function seems pretty great, but it would take it to the next level for me if I could use it with symbols. This would make form fields and components super easy!

    Hi All,

    We’re excited to announce that with our May release, we have introduced Components (previously known as symbols). Components are design elements with unmatched flexibility that help you create and maintain repeated elements while varying the instances for different contexts and layouts.

    You can create a master component to define a reusable element, such as a button, and you can change any of its properties to customize instances of that element (Size & Layout, Style and Appearance, and Structural overrides). Changes you make to an individual instance are specific to that element, but changes you make to the master propagates to all the instances where the property hasn’t been customized.

    Components now could also be responsively resized with the same powerful capabilities of responsive resize baked in.

    Finally, you could link components across documents to maintain a single source of your components using the Link Assets feature or simply…

  12. Prototype 'Transition Options' in property inspector instead of in a popup

    The current UI for transitions is clunky and flows awkwardly. Every time I try to link to something lower on the page, the pop-up box appears below the 'fold'/screen and I have to move the artboard into view and re-click on the 'from' element to get the pop-up to appear. You've already trained the users to use the side-panel (right) to change elements in the design view, I think it makes sense to place the transitions in the same spot. It would greatly simplify the flow, as well as returning to edit transitions.

  13. Scene based Transition

    Feature request.

    Using this feature user can create the artboard based animation very easily. XD has to create a new scene based frame to select the artboard to animate.


    1. Create a scene based frame.

    2. Drag and drop the artboard to animate in frame

    3. Draw the object in the artboard

    4. Same objects would display in other artboards drag and drop in the frame

    5. Move the objects in the frame. (same would refresh in artboards)

    6. Automatically animate the objects (Shape, position, color etc...)

  14. Disable navigation on footer

    Hi Guys,

    is it possible to deactivate/disable the page-navigation on the Footer from prototype? Clients use this usually as Slide and don't understand the main fonction of XD

  15. Export/Downloading PNG/JPEG/SVG from Design Specs

    Often what happens is that Developers require some assets in either SVG format or any of the other image formats.

    Using Design Specs, exporting/downloading a specific icon/vector shape would help ease the asset transferring between Designers and Developers. This would also help maintain the right assets and share it with ease.

  16. Increase the hit area in the asset panel when in list view

    The hit area of an asset is limited to the icon in list view. which is very counter-intuitive please increase the hit area. and I don't think there will be any harm in doing so.

  17. Anonymous Log-In For Reviewers

    Would be very helpful not to require clients/stakeholders to create an Adobe account simply to review their comps. This could be sandboxed within private links to solve security concerns (ie., if they have the link, they can be assumed safe to allow comments from). Many clients won't do so, forcing to send a JPG or PDF via Dropbox instead, which defeats the purpose of having used a prototyping tool.

  18. Ability to designate font points vs. pixels

    Since our developers code our websites in pixels, we need the ability to change the font style from points to pixels.

  19. Create mask from default container

    I think it would be a great improvement if the current 'mask with shape' feature also worked by using the default container of an image:


    1. Select image

    2. Shift + CMD + M

    3. Image is now masked within it's default container that you can edit

    Thanks!

    Note from Randy:

    Starting with XD 9, images are already masked with a shape! No need to execute any command.

    The shape is a Rectangle with same width and height as image. Double-click in the middle to edit size and position of image fill.

    Double-click on border to convert rectangle to a path.

  20. XD Character Style/Colors Swatch Hit Area too small (Assets Panel Grid View)

    Currently you have to select the Colur icon/block or Ag style icon to apply character or Colour style, if you click anywhere else in the character style block it does not apply!!!
    The more intuitive and i think previous versions had this, is to make the entire character style capsule clickable. I run a 5k screen setup so the icons are pretty small.
