  1. Remove prototype border

    Is there a way to get rid of that default annoying grey border in shared prototypes? What's the purpose? It doesn't appear when viewed on laptop, why it's showing on mobile?

    I have a black background design of a mobile app. When viewed on a mobile phone it really impacts the overall experience and generates confusion (is it intentional?).

  2. Enable Adobe Exchange for XD

    Adobe Exchange should enable for Adobe XD, so that other developer can develop extensions and allow us to install. Like we have. this option for other CC products like, Photoshop, illustrator, InDesign and others.

  4. Let users know when they try to open a file that is already opened by other designer

    Basically, just a warning would be fine, when a design trying to open a file that's already opened, just let them know, and eventually let they know who they are would be nice too.

  5. Design Spec: ability to download assets for developer, just like in Zeplin.

    Just like how it works in Zeplin, developers can select an asset in the design to inspect its properties and then can download that asset to use.

    Hi All,

    With XD’s 11.0 release (which happened moments ago), we’ve made this feature live.

    You can now save time and give developers the ability to extract and download assets from Design Specs. Mark layers as assets for export and send as a Design Specs link. Developers can download all the assets in the file format they need

    As always, please do let us know about what you think of this feature and feel free to log the improvements that you’d like to see in this workflow as new requests at adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-x..

    Thanks,
    Harish

  6. Please let me use beta version before full version.


    1. Please let me use beta version before full version.

    2. Feature update of the full version is too late. Monthly updates are relatively quick compared to other programs, but in the prototype implementation, important menu fixes and keyboard slides are only shown in the seminar, and the updates are actually too late. We expected these features to be updated in the May update.
      But the actual updates are very disappointing. So I want you to use the beta version before the full version comes out.

  7. Add Search field to Libraries

    There needs to be a way to search within libraries.

    I have a library that has 750+ icons in a library and no way to search for what I am looking for.

  8. Move comment create-date duration away from the Reply button

    The current position of the 'duration since a comment was written' has confused a few people, due to it's proximity to the 'Reply' link. I've attached a screenshot - see the second comment.

    Upon initial glance, it appears that the time since the comment was created actually refers to the reply, rather than the original comment. The line reads "1 reply 3 days ago". In this case, '3 days ago' refers to the time since the initial comment, and is unrelated to the reply action.

    We’ve adjusted the way we present comments in the past year. Now, the comment is in the upper right corner of the comment, while the reply button is in the lower left hand corner. Please feel free to file another ticket if you feel like additional improvements need to be made!

  9. Switch Commenting Process to Pick, then Type

    To comment on a shared prototype link currently, we have to type the comment and then select where on the prototype we'd like to place the comment. This is very counter-intuitive because the comment bar on the bottom right feels disconnected from the prototype.

    If I could pick a location first and then type the comment directly next to it, then that will help me remember what I'm commenting about.

    Also, it would be great to highlight a comment more prominently when its corresponding icon/number is clicked on the prototype. Right now its a very subtle background change.

  10. Design Specs, hard to view specs of grouped/layered elements

    Hard to view specifications of every element in a group/layer. For developers it seems better not to group anything, so they can view every item and layer (like overlays, highlighted text, etc.). But even then one cannot see all colors of the layers in one element (when you show different states of button, you add a 30% black overlapping layer on top of a color). A solution would be to show all layers, and make them selectable.

  11. Style Grouped Elements - How to do it?

    I saw that you can grouped elements, and then make one change that applies to all. I don't know what are the steps to achieve this? Could you show us how? I couldn't find a tutorial on the Adobe Help page.

  12. Title name for character styles

    There must be an option to call what kind of text style I have created.
    Currently, it just shows what the font type, size etc., but user should be able to create his own style name or predefined user interface styles.

    Like in Adobe InDesign for paragraph styles.

    That way I can easily identify what kind of generated style I want to use to the text component I have created.

  13. Resize artboard

    Every now and then I find myself juggling with layout settings as soon as I change the width of an existing artboard and want the layout to stay the same.
    Especially when designing for the web.
    Suppose I have a design made on a canvas with a width of 1280. The design is vertically centerd on the artboard. When I change the width of the canvas to say 1500, the design doesn't stay in the center, but positions itself relative to the upper left corner. And the Grid Layout adapts to the new width, meaning that column width and gutter…

  14. Make Styles panel collapsible, or add fullscreen mode in Design Specs

    When viewing design specs on smaller screens, the top, right, and bottom panels take up too much space. I recommend making the right panel collapsible, the bottom panel shorter, and the top panel transparent like the bottom one.

  15. Eye dropper fill tool

    Why did you move the eye dropper tool inside the fill dialogue box? It now takes two clicks to access it instead of the original one click. With a tool that is used so frequently this is not a good thing.

  16. Edit Symbols

    I'd love the ability to edit an existing symbol and have it populate to all instances (ie. Navigations, Headers, Footers, etc.)

    This would make editing content and global changes SO much easier.

  17. Paste Appearance command

    Paste Appearance command should also work on folders. Lets say I have some multilayered flat logo 'A' in 'Folder A' and I want to past the attributes on all layers inside. It will be great. Currently I have to select all layers seperately.

  19. Display informations for developers

    When I send my mockup to developers, they need all informations about size, font, etc. It would be nice to have an option to display those informations :)

  20. ProtoPie integration on Windows

    I want to export my designs to ProtoPie using XD on Windows 10 - just like it works with XD on Mac.
