  1. 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.

  2. 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,…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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...)

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Put Comment Feature in Design Spec Public Link

    Why is the comment feature not allowed in the Design Spec Public Link? Why can't it work the same as Prototype Shared Link? Why is it only in the Private Link?

    I want a place for my team to review my screens from a bird's eye view without having to invite them.

    And the email invite is crap because it only works if it's their adobe email account. But what if they don't have an Adobe account? Then it doesn't work. So now I don't feel confident sharing any private link because it's highly likely they cannot access it.

    I…

    We’ve delivered comments in design specs. Arun has mentioned:

    Commenting feature is present even for the Design Spec public links. When you publish a public Design Specs link from latest release of XD and share it with your team, they would be able to open the commenting panel and add provide feedback. Please note that commenting feature is available for both Public & Private links.

    Private links is a secure way of sharing your designs with team members. When reviewers click on the invite email, they would be taken to Adobe sign-in page where they can choose to sign-up in case their email does not have an adobe ID. As soon as they sign-up, it would automatically be associated and would provide them access to view your private design.

  14. Design Standards for each file

    With a consistent design system, I have mapped all the standards we need to use on each project. With that, on XD I'm not able to set those as standards on a file so for an example, each different text element created need to be changed from the standard XD font to the one in my design system.

    With that, we would be able not only to document the general standards for the dev team but also would allow us to keep the standards tightly without the chance of forgetting to change something That could work for:


    • Standard font (family,…

    We’ve introduced linked assets, which will enable you to link your entire assets panel from another document. You should be able to define things in one location and reuse them.

    If you’re looking for something different, please feel free to file a new ticket!

  15. Please add an Exit Button in Mobile app to exit from preview mode.

    There is no exit button for Adobe XD android app when you're in preview mode. Pressing the back button in android mobile, send us to the previous artboard and we can only exit when we get back to the starting(first) artboard. I'd like an easy way to exit from preview mode.

  18. Shared XD libraries

    Need to share Adobe XD assets library to other CC users. Not only Illustrator CC libraries, but XD colors/fonts/symbols lybraries. It's a must!

    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.

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

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

  19. Color asset highlighting

    When object with applied asset color or font style is selected, highlight those assets in the left bar so I know which one is applied.
