  1. Support new JIRA option to switch JIRA URL

    Atlassian now support changing the JIra URL without requiring migration to a new instance. This is very valuable for rebranding or acquired companies that wih to retain their existing JIRA instance and simply update the URL.

    We considered this but were informed that the XD plug in does not support this yet and we'd have to disable in order to make this change. Not sure we have any choice but to quit using it.

    Our design team can post plain old URLs in Jira tickets but we do enjoy the plug in features.

    Any plans to support this?

  2. Time trigger for scroll animation

    Auto-page scroll is often needed feature to trigger on artboard/page-load. Currently I can mimic this effect by making 2 artboards, moving a group up (or down) on the scroll position and use auto-animate artboard-to-artboard.
    Example:
    https://xd.adobe.com/view/9182ed42-11c0-45ff-a10f-e343424fbd97-c4d1/

    Here on the second board, user should be able to scroll back up the content group (which mimicked auto-scroll down using auto-animate) yet, XD does not support scrolling content positioned above an artboard. Ideal XD-feature should allow to set an auto-scroll for layers (perhaps to a certain Y-position) and let user to scroll back while displaying a scroll-bar.

  3. Shared web prototype should default to 100% Zoom

    Many times when you share a design with a client on the web, they won't realize that the default XD zoom is less than 100%. In my case, it defaults to 79% which has caused countless problems where the client says, "The font is too small" when in fact, if they were viewing it at the actual size, they would not experience the issue.

    XD, by default, should display the shared document at 100% and THEN allow users to zoom out or in based on their particular monitor or preference.

  5. Export any object from design specs

    A major pain point is that certain shapes that we, the developers need have not been exported, so we have to contact the designer to have them exported. If it were possible to select indiviual shapes to export, this problem would have been solved

  7. When changing details in one state of a component, other state items should get selected

    When I am changing details in state2 of a component, I don't want state1 text, or items to get selected.
    1. They are anyways hidden in this state and of no use.
    2. It's very annoying and tiring to select a component in current state, that too when it a table and each row need new details...

  8. display a component based on from where the prototype is linked to that artboard.

    For example show different user image on forum page artboard based on the artboard it came from.

    One more example is to show a link in sidebar in some special artboard based on type of user. If a normal user artboard is prototyped to this special artboard then don't show the link in this special artboard. If an admin artboard is prototyped to this special artboard then show the link in this special artboard.

    What will it solve?
    - It will solve duplicating artboards based on minor changes.

  9. Component variants

    While Adobe XD Team has certainly done an amazing work toward design systems creation in the tool, it still lack a bit of power.

    Actually, it's quite tedious to create, maintain and use a design system in XD. Especially when working with multiple variants of a component.

    Let's say I need too work on an app design and I want create my buttons in my design system : primary, secondary, alert, w/icon, large, small...

    With the current XD, I only have 2 solutions and both have are really time consuming to maintain :


    1. I need to create a separate component…

  11. Selecting a nested group using direct select

    When you hover over a group and see the blue highlight, you should be allowed to click and select that group. This will make selecting things SO much easier!!

    Thanks

    Thanks! I see what’s happening. You actually have a nested group and want to select what’s in between. There are two ways to do this: you can either double click to enter into the edit context of your top group, or you can Escape after direct selecting the background to pop up through the edit context. I see where the confusion is, though – I can highlight this to the team and see if we can figure out a clean way to enable the selection of a nested group.

  12. hide shortcut NEW

    New hide shortcut: now is (windows) ctrl + §

    I like more alt + §

  13. Correct the dimensions to 1x when pasting a retina screenshot

    When pasting from a mac screenshot the retina image is x2 the actual size. This means every time you paste in a screenshot you have to divide the width by 2 to get the correct dimensions. Can you detect a retina asset when pasting and compensate? If you use this pattern all the time it is a drag.

  14. Add colors directly to asset panel

    Colors. Why can't I add them straight up? I know all the colours i need to use? Why can't i just create them? Why do i need put something on an art board first? I am doing something wrong?

    The asset management is strange. Figma does it better. Copy them.

  15. Darken background on Design Specs for white assets

    The current grey makes it usually impossible to see white assets. If adobe could dynamically use a darker grey for images that are almost entirely white, that would help a lot. Currently, I have to change the CSS in devtools if I want to see white assets.

  16. Stop Hover Triggering Through Other Layers

    When a component has a hover interaction, the hover effect being activated even if there is an element in front.

    E.g. when having two labels with rectangles appearing on-hover, one can place one of the rectangles above the other label. Then, hovering over the rectangle fires the hover effect from the label beneath it.

  18. Hold keyboard shortcut to disable swap component

    When I am trying to build nested components-- in order to prevent it from swapping, I have to click into the component in order to drag another component from the assets panel. I would like the ability to hold a modifier key to prevent this from happening. It would save time and clicks.

  20. Support preview on Surface Duo

    When trying to design for surface duo I tried to make a art-board that would span both screens so I could design for the surface duo however the app stops short of the actual size of the display. As you can see with the photo I have attached there are black bars around the outside of the screen.
