  1. Don't show elements outside artboards when selecting within the artboard

    Big alements that are placed half outside (thus partly hidden) on an artboard and they become visible when selecting any element that's on that artboard.

    This is very anoying and doesn' make sense.

    For example:
    I have two artboard closely next to each other. They both have big elements half outside the artboard. Also on each artboard there's a menu header.
    Now, when I want to select the header menu on each page, one of the big elements prevents me to click on the menu header on the other artboard.

    See example image:
    Header 2 is selected. But there is…

  3. Apply multiple paragraph styles within same text box

    It would be helpful to apply multiple paragraph styles within the same text box. This is particularly helpful for long bodies of text such as visualising a blog page. Currently you have to split each header, sub head and body copy block into separate text boxes.

  4. Intuitive Versioning (like Time Machine or with Onion-View)

    I would like to have an effortless peak into past iterations of a design without too much hassle, pick elements and get back to the current state again. Maybe switching through states in a timeline, dive into the state, grab items that I want to recover and get back to the current state again.

    This would help me gather items clients liked in past iterations and get them back in the current view.

    It would be amazing to have this in a time-machine (Mac OS) or onion fashion or something else really intuitive and maybe even accessible over right-click on…

  6. Correction numbers are changing when resolved

    When putting a comment to the state of 'resolved' the numbers on the file are changing. This can be very disturbing, when a collegue refers to a number.. Because that number has been changed.

    It would be very nice, if the resolved items just greyed out or something but could still be visible.

  9. Always show guides, even when zoomed out

    I have 10 rather large artboards in my workspace; and they all use guides; I just noticed that after a certain level of zooming out, all guides vanish, and only visible again after you zoom in again.

  10. Cloud folder sync up for all users

    I was happy to see folders for cloud documents be released. However, my co-worker(s) and I were disappointed to see that when organizing or creating a folder structure, it does not reflect to other XD users. Essentially, it only occurs under your own Creative Cloud account.

    REQUEST: I would like to make a folder structure with my own and/or XD documents that were shared with me to be synced up for specified users to see on their ends as well. (Similarly to Dropbox or Google Drive folders where other users can access them)

  11. [Mac] Open file dialog, make it possible to resize like the start screen

    I have a lot of files saved in the cloud documents, yet the open file dialog is so tiny that it's difficult getting an overview of all the files.

    Yet where the start screen is resizable, the open dialog is fixed.

    Please let me resize the open file dialog as I see fit.

  12. Show hints for hover states

    A user testing the prototype in the browser is not sure which components have hover states and thus miss all that the prototype has to offer.

    It will be great to also have hints for hovers, similar to hotspot hints.

  13. Immediately apply changes to component which is inside of another component when changing master component


    1. Why components inside of another component are not changing immediately?
      When I have component inside of a group and I change the master component, those components inside of a group are changing immediately. But when i convert the group to component, I have to right-click every component inside that component and apply changes.

    Is there a way to at least apply those changes to whole document? Or why it is not changing immediately?


    1. If I have hundreds of child components inside of another component I would have to right-click all of them to apply changes from master component.
      It would…

  15. Fix the overlapping issue with adjacent components

    Two adjacent buttons [components in this case] each with similar states (one hover and one dialog popup) are not behaving as per the expectation. When the pop up dialog state is active, the other button is overlapping onto the dialog. Check the video. This is a limitation. Creating a separate artboard and linking to it should not be the solution when you have components in place. I am unable to use two components with states adjacent to each other or one below the other.

    Also, it would be nice to see a component with expanding state pushing the component below…

  17. Cmd+O should open local documents

    WHY did you remove the availability to open files from my computer from the open menu? Stop trying to force everyone to use the cloud. Were users banging down your door demanding that you split the OPEN FILE functionality into two separate functions depending on whether or not you wanted to open from the cloud or open from your computer!?!?
    So many things you could be fixing or improving so why waste time on something that was never broken.
    Command O has been a learned behavior for decades. Just dumb.

  18. Remove "unnamed" from font-family, font-size, character-spacing and text-transform design tokens until we are able to name them

    The design variables list is filled with "unnamed" variables that we can't name. It creates an extra step for developers to clean up the list given to them after download.

  19. Connect multiple devices/Interactions across devices

    I would like that Adobe XD supports communication between multiple devices. You are able to test not only interactions in individual devices, but also service scenarios featuring interactions among multiple devices by multiple users.

    It is very helpful for HMI designers, Automotive industry.
    Currently, I see ProtoPie can do it. But I really wish that Adobe XD can do it too and have much better version than them.

    Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEYRYh1dKso

  20. Paste and import images into pasteboard instead of Artboard

    From my understanding a pasteboard collection contains any object created in the gray area outside any artboard. If that's the case then why can't I importan an image directly into the pasteboard and not the artboard itself? As far as what this would be used for, it could be used for stensil or an example of what you want to replicate as a set of arboards. Say you had a few hand-sketches, you scanned it and imported into XD and now you want to start building a hihger-fidelity wires.

    Right now the moment I paste something or import something into…

    Yes, I did give you a workaround, and then asked you a question as to how you’d like it to work.

    If you wanted XD to avoid visible artboards, what would you want it to do if you had a bunch of artboards in view? Would you want it to paste off screen? Or would you want it to resize to fit the pasteboard?
