  2. Increase zoom range for Design Specs

    The current zoom range for Design Specs goes up to 200%. For small items with intricate details or many parts, a larger max would be very helpful (800, 1600, etc.) for precise selection.

  4. Detach/float the layer panel

    I want to be able to undock the layer manager from the main Adobe XD window like in Photoshop etc. That way i can have Adobe XD on one monitor and the layer manager on the other one.
    This would increase the productivity by a lot, because you dont have to switch between the components and layers, but can have them both open at once.

  5. Synchronization bug

    I have 2 computers. On the 1st I saved XD file as a file on my hard drive (not as a cloud document) in the folder that is syncronized. The file was uploaded, because I can see it on assets.adobe.com.
    On the 2nd computer I have also synchronization folder, so these folders on both computers should be equal.
    BUT on the 2nd computer I don't see this file. Even though Creative Cloud Desktop on both computers shows that synchronization complete.

  6. Export Video placed within the Device it was made for

    After I finish recording an interaction, I would like to have an option to export the video with the device around the video kinda like a container.

  7. Share UI should be “usability testing” not “user testing”

    The November release is fantastic. But I noticed in the share UI the drop down says user testing. User testing implies you are testing the user. This is the exact opposite of what we are trying to accomplish. Usability testing is more accurate because you are testing the usability of the design. Would love to see the wording change and I bet I’m not the only one.

  9. Select artboard based on orientation & "screen size"

    So, say I have 2 artboards. 1 for Portrait mode, one for Landscape mode. In preview - presentation, I rotate my device and... drum roll.... cold sweat.

    Technically what I would love is to be able to group artboards under a name and have a field with each artboard where I can put some format or format identifier. Then I want XD in preview to select the best format (or give me a dropdown so I can do that)

    Romantically I'd love to have a storyboard. Each step can have multiple artboards that represent different screen sizes. When I

    Preview…

  10. [Windows] Allow CC Libraries Panel to be moved outside the Workspace, like it did before

    The functionality added to libraries with groups is awesome! But why did you decide it was better to trap the panel within the bounds of the window? Now it's constantly in the way... I can't dock it and I can't move it outside the workspace... like I can with every other Adobe development software. I can't even adjust the size to see more or less assets at a time so it takes up less space.

  11. Expand Component palette in XD UI

    Now that we are all loving the ability to add States to Components... My "component" box in the upper right is getting busy, and I'm having to scroll constantly! It looks like we have plenty of vertical space in the XD UI to allow this area to expand... either as needed (to a certain point of course!), or allow the user to drag this palette longer, similar to other CC apps.

  12. Copy text from Sketch & Paste in XD

    Currently, when you copy text from Sketch and paste them in XD, the XD breaks the text into a bunch of random small text boxes instead of one text box (see attached image). We need all the text to be in one text box, not many small text boxes.

  13. Import XD Assets into InDesign

    Looking to implement a design system organization-wide. It would be nice to be able to access assets created in XD in other Adobe applications (InDesign). For example, incorporating into an InDesign Library, all the assets from the "master" XD design system (buttons, logos, sliders, etc.)

  14. Allow options to default color names in Assets to RGB, HSL, etc

    Now the colors in Assets are forced to have a hex code as the default name.

    Please:

    1. allow options to change default naming to RGB, HSL, or others.
    2. automatically convert the existing color names in the assets to the same type of color code, if they haven't been edited.

  15. Dark background in shared prototype

    When sharing on the web, if we have artboards with white backgrounds, there is no visual separation between artboard and background. I suggest making the option for making the background dark, or implementind device frames.

  16. Coediting Error 2143

    Trying out the new coediting feature in November 2019 update. It's good and convenient. However, i currently encounter document crashing as it is unable to reconnect.

    Having previous version is helpful as it backs up my working file and enabling me to download it. But I would still like it to be saved into the same document instead of forcing me to close. The current cloud doc is considered as a corrupted file. It is troublesome as I need to recreate a new cloud file for other partners once again. Viewer/reviewers also cannot use back the same link to view…

  17. New state feature doesn't sync when assets updated

    I have a separated file for all assets and my actual project, so what I usually do is call the assets file from clouds (this is so my other team member able to use the same assets when they working on other pages).

    So with the new state feature where I can add hover and other states to my buttons, I change some of my buttons in the master assets file (the one i save on clouds) and then I click update assets on my project file.

    The default state is updated but not the other states (hover, inactive, etc..)…

  18. Allow Component States in repeat grid

    Let's say we want to add a Radio Group and use our Design System Radio Button Component for that. Currently it's not possible to set one of the components to the selected state.

    As a workaround we can create the list with the repeat grid, then ungroup it and change the desired item. But that can't be how it's intended to work.

    ps: I feel bad for lodging a Feature Request days after you released such a great feature. It sounds lI'm ike complaining instead of being thankful - thats not the case, the component states are awesome,d thank you…

  19. Create new Symbol from Existing Symbol (while preserving states)

    I'm using the new convert sketch library in XD to import all the different libraries i have. While I appreciate the ability to add states, it has one major flaw.

    I cannot create a new symbol from an existing symbol that already has the states i want in it.

    A good example of this is my button system. See screenshot for how it exists in sketch now.

    Basically i have 20 different types of buttons (this is an enterprise design system) each with 2 different sizes (big and small) and each of those button types comes in 5 states:

    Default,…

  20. Component animations

    It would be nice to create different states of an individual component that can be transitioned in sequence, to create an animation.

    For example, if i want a button to pulse a glowing effect, I would create a component that looks like a button and then duplicate it and adjust it to look like a glowy button, and then link the two so that they transition back and forth into a loopable animation.
