  1. Component States to Development (Design Specs)

    How can we export Hover states to development?
    In the specs there is only one state in the component. How will development see all states?

  2. Color asset edit should work for component instances in different documents

    When using a component instance in a different document, changes to the linked color asset (in the new document) should update the instances.

    There seems to be no reason for the current behavior. I work with multiple products with the same base UI differed mostly by color.

    It actually looks more like a bug, but this ticket says otherwse: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/38063995-linked-components-not-reacting-to-edit-fill-color

  3. XD Jira Plugin - Leverage JIRA Filters on Shared XD Boards

    Enter a custom JIRA Filter ID either in the XD Plugin interface or the JIRA App Management.

    This would populate the Filter by drop down in the JIRA XD Plugin interface.

    Benefit: Leverage JIRAs powerful filtering to group Stories that need design and allows design teams to see the same group of Issues being worked on.

    Note: For shared XD projects/boards.

  4. Curated list of plug-ins

    It's frustrating to try to get plugins to work. Many have little to no support or even a guide on how to use them. A curated list of plug ins that work for most users would be helpful.

  5. Place images like InDesign

    It would be great if XD can place images or psd files into design like indesign. And also linked files must be updated in XD after editing images or psd files.

    For example; while creating a landing page, the hero image is a complicated design; designed in photoshop. Right now if i wanted to edit hero image i have to open psd file, edit it, export it and place it to XD. But it can be like indesign; cmd+double click placed psd file on XD then PS opens, i edit and save then on XD updated new image on screen.

  6. Folders for cloud documents

    Our team names xd files to link to jira tickets. It'd be very helpful for the cloud to have a folder structure for separating releases into batches.

  7. Invite user groups to private links

    I have a lot of stakeholders that need access to any given prototype. I'd like to be able to invite a user group to a private prototype so I don't have to manage individual users on a single link.

  8. Import SVG with preserved viewBox boundary

    Many icon sets define a specific (often square) area that represents the boundaries for all icons. In the SVG format, this boundary is specified by the SVG viewBox attribute. Individual icons will have varying measurements for their vector shapes, e.g. a "minus" icon's vector-shape will have a larger width than height. When scaling icons, if you can rely on the viewBox size, you can scale all icons to consistent sizes (e.g. 24x24 or 48x48).

    Currently when importing an SVG icon into Adobe XD, the object will have the vector-shapes measurements, so that scaling multiple icons from the same icon set…

    Hi,

    Blur for the exported SVG will be implemented in a future version of XD. Will let you know once that is publicly available.

    Cheers,

  10. Allow multiple people to share a link to the same URL (multiple owners of a prototype or design spec)

    Collaborative work: Updating 'share link' of an .xd file not possible on another machine

    System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
    XD-Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta

    We are working with different people on the same .xd file. Updating the prototype link is only possible on the machine with wich the .xd file was created. The other people can only create new links.

    1. Create an .xd file
    2. Publish prototype
    2. Save the .xd file
    3. Open the same .xd file on another machine
    4. Updating the published prototype link not possible (only creation of new link)

  11. Ability to jump to specific page in prototype.

    Allow visitors to enter the page/artboard # in a shared prototype. For example: Someone shared a prototype with me that had 91 pages, and they asked me to look at page 55. I had to click the forward or back buttons repeatedly to get there.

  12. Intersection is misaligned

    When using Intersection in 0.6.20.7 Beta, the resulting object is misaligned from the two shapes position. See GIF below:

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting in touch. This is currently the expected behavior, though we are hoping to improve it in the future. When you create a boolean group including an image, the image then becomes a fill for the resulting path. The image will be scaled to cover the path, similar to the css background-property value “cover”.

    If you want the image to stay in place, I would suggest using a Mask instead, which will keep the relative size / position of the image intact.

    You might be interested in checking out two topics over in the feature request forum:

    More flexibility when using images as a fill:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17197367-drag-image-into-bounding-box

    Automatically resizing an image to fit a mask group:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13125480-fit-content-proportionally

    I hope that answers your questions,
    -Bear

  13. Clear all prototype wires

    I would like to be able to clear all prototype wires similar to how the clear all guides option works in other Adobe products.

  14. Reorder layers in Mask via Layers panel

    At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

  15. Save all prototypes locally on device

    Actually, the app stores just the last prototype. Please keep all prototypes on device, in a simple list, always available and organizable.

    Thanks for your feedback. We definitely have this feature in the roadmap. Soon, you’ll be able to manage XD documents stored in CC Files from mobile (search, list, delete) & toggle to save specific projects for offline viewing.

  16. Apple Watch Preview App

    Apple watch Adobe XD app (that runs on Apple watch watch).
    Wouldn't require many additional features compared to its iPhone counterpart.

    - Support for 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch sized artboards within Adobe XD (desktop)
    - Support for linked objects/hotspots within the watch previewer app
    - Transition effects visible within the watch previewer app
    - Close prototype by using force touch within the watch previewer app
    - Support for fixed headers

  17. Locate & Open Prototypes in Creative Cloud Mobile App

    Actually, it would be nice to have access to all the prototypes through the CC mobile app.

    Now, when I'm on smartphone you have to go to the assets.adobe.com and find them there. But assets.adobe.com is not user friendly on mobile.

    In the future, you’ll be able to access your Web Prototypes published from Adobe XD on desktop, from your mobile app.

    But today, if you need to access XD documents (with just designs or with prototypes) from your device. If you place your XD documents in your CC Files folder on desktop, you can now load them from Adobe XD on mobile. Make sure you have your document saved and synced in your CC Files folder on desktop, then open Adobe XD on your mobile device. Tap on the folder icon and choose “XD Document from Creative Cloud”, or if you’re viewing an XD document, long press and tap on “Open XD Document > XD Document from Creative Cloud”. What’s interesting here is that we have a full version of Adobe XD running on the mobile device to open each XD document.

  18. Google UI Structured Table

    Please expand upon existing Google UI kit to include the Google Material Structured Data Table

  19. Color shift in shared prototype

    I am about to use it for design prototype for work. As I tested it, I found out the colour between design view and share online result have different colours.
    Please check the attached files. I tested with my own file and the examples from adobe.

  20. Gradient color swatches in color picker popup

    Thanks for adding gradients !
    Right now, we can add colours to our 'favourites' with the + button, could we also save gradients when in the gradient tool?

    Something really nice too would be to allow the pipette to pick the gradient of a shape/artboard.

    These too would save a lot of time !!

    While XD doesn’t yet have this feature to save gradients in the color picker popup’s swatches, you do have several other options today:

    - Store gradients in the Assets panel swatches: open the Assets panel on the left side (View > Assets), and click the “+” next to Colors. Then select any other object and click the gradient swatch to apply it to that object.

    - Copy gradient fills between objects: use regular Copy on the source object, then select the destination object and choose Paste Appearance.
