  1. Change "Who has access" in Share from "Anyone with the link" to "Only invited people" easily

    Hi, is there a way to change "Who has access" mode in Share from "Anyone with the link" to "Only invited people" easily? Right now the only way to do that is by creating a new link instead of simply changing the selection in "Who has access" dropdown and update it.

    Will this be a possible update in the future?

  2. Allow component instance overrides to be inherited by all states

    Currently (XD 24.0.22.19), if I drop an instance of a component and then adjust part of it (text in a button, size of the instance, etc.), that override is only applied to the selected state of the instance. So, if I have a button with many states (normal, hover, disabled, active, default action, etc.) I have to manually apply that override to each state of the instance. This is extremely tedious and error prone.

    Please provide the ability to have an override of an instance be inherited by all states in that component instance.

  3. Keyboard shortcut between text inputs

    It would be great to have a shortcut to jump between text inputs, including within repeat grids.

    For example, tab to move to next text box.

    Example image shows why this is necessary, I have a lot of similar pages that require typing in a lot of different text boxes.

    Thank you

  4. break components instead of ungroup components

    Instead of having the option to ungroup components it would be much better to have an option to break components and turn them back to groups with the same name as the component, if I then want to un-group its a simple keystroke to do so. Right now I have to go back in and re-group and re-name every component that was just ungrouped.

  5. Reset different aspects of a component

    Currently "Reset to master component" resets all aspects of a component including text overwrites and color overwrites.

    I'd like to have the option to keep specific overrides of a component on reset. e.g.:
    - Keep text overwrites
    - Keep color overwrites
    - Keep image overwrite

    This would help to keep content and design separated and be very helpful. Especially If local adjustments where made and master was changed afterwards

    Currently "Reset to master component" is the same as "Delete component" + "Paste master in original position". As a result I need to re-enter everything again.

  7. Cannot select object underneath in Design Specs

    オブジェクトの選択について

    「デザインスペック」画面で、
    重なっているオブジェクトの枚数が多いと、
    オブジェクトが選択ができないようです。
    (階層が下のオブジェクトが選択できない?)

    オブジェクト間の正確なマージンが取れずに困っています。
    修正のご検討、よろしくお願いいたします。

    About selecting objects

    On the "Design Spec" screen,
    If the number of overlapping objects is large,
    It seems that you can not select an object.
    (Can not select object with hierarchy below??)

    I am in trouble because I can not get an accurate margin between objects.
    Consideration of correction, thank you.

  10. show date of last update for each screen

    At this time one can see "The date when the design specs was last updated"

    When working on a living project, with constant improvements, or in general during development phase, it would be pretty handy for
    - developers (identify what to do)
    - testers/customers/responsible persons (what to review)
    to easily see that there where changes on special screen since last look by showing date and time of last update for each screen.

  11. Activity stream in shared files

    I'd like to see an overview of all the activities and comments on all of the pages within a document that is shared. Otherwise there's quite a good possibility of missing some.

    Something like Invision has would be great:

    Thank you for your feedback. We are looking into the possibility of something like this. If you’d be willing to chat more about what your needs are around this activity stream, please ping me at tan@adobe.com

  12. Update interaction wires across symbols / components (keep in sync)

    Adding a wire to an object inside a symbol or changing a wire inside a symbol should create/change the same wire/link across other instances of that symbol in the same way styles/text etc changes other instances.

    This would allow navigation to be edited throughout a project.

    I love the convenience of symbols, and I love that we can now add links to objects within a symbol, but not being able to propagate that interaction to other symbols is a problem for me.

  13. Drop shadow binds to border

    When adding a drop shadow to an object it binds to the border.

    This means that if an object does not have a border or a fill (in the instance where you would want to create a glass like effect it is not possible)

    We have tested and verified that this is counter to how the browsers behave - this is the test example we used:

  14. Add some basic editing features for mobile app

    Hope to see some basic editing features for mobile app. This could be really helpful for prototyping.

  15. Embed fonts for 'untethered' mobile preview from Creative Cloud

    Would be nice if fonts were embedded into the XD file. If not you aren't able to preview the app design with the correct font from iOS or android when syncing from creative cloud.

  16. Sync Mobile Preview to reflect desktop Preview window or viewport / scroll position

    I like the live editing on mobile, that's a good case.

    However, I'd like the ability for the mobile device to reflect where I am in my artboard when working in XD on my Mac.

    Example -- I'm designing a mobile page and I scroll down to the footer; currently I'd have to manually scroll to the footer on my device to reflect what I'm working on.

    Example II -- I'm in prototype mode on my Mac, and I click a button to move to a linked artboard. I'd expect this interaction to be mirrored on the mobile device, but…

  17. When creating a text field, automatically fill it with lorem ipsum.

    Well, just as the title says. When selecting a text field and dragging across an art board, fill it with lorem ipsum automatically. If you don't need a dummy text - simply start writing to overwrite it. Would make prototyping text rich websites much faster.

  18. Adobe Extract for Brackets to work with XD

    Brackets Code Editor has good integration with PSD Files, which allows it to grab layers, colors, font details and spacing info. More on that here (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/extract-for-brackets.html)
    I wonder whether you can work on features that allow Adobe Extract to grab data(images, font names, sizing info etc) from XD and transfer for Brackets, the same way it happens to PSD ?

  19. Arrow navigation on the online shared prototype

    I created a link, but when I was presenting, I realized that exported version can't be navigated using keyboard-arrows.

    There was some negative feedback received when we removed the navigation arrows from prototypes, so, this change was reverted and other solutions are being considered.

  20. Change default fill and stroke settings (color, etc.) used when drawing new shapes

    It's quite frustrating that every time I use the shape tools, I have to remove the stroke and change the fill.
    Like in ID and AI, it would be useful if the object fill and stroke remembers the previous settings, or a default could be somehow set.
