  1. Horizontal and Vertical Stacks

    Using stacks in both horizontal and vertical orientations would bring the prototype much closer to to how development works, specially in mobile, providing much more relatable deliverables.

    A "spacing" property could also be used in the stack, providing better control over the design.

    A toggle between horizontal and vertical is something that would help but is not necessary.

  2. Deselect Home Artboard

    Need the ability to 'deselect' the home artboard.

    Issue: If I create a prototype with links to the home artboard I can share everything linked to home.

    If I then need to remove all connectors so none of the pages were linked, but I still want to publish all artboards, it won't allow me to do it. Only the home artboard is selected.

    Basically, once you have physically selected the home artboard by clicking the home icon (rather than having XD do it by default when you create your first board) then you're done! Only one screen can be published…

  3. Changelog for every XD update

    Major releases seem to get changelog updates in a handful of places, but not all updates are clear as to what is actually being improved. It's kind of annoying and confusing to update, like the one 2 days ago for example, and have no clue what's changed even after a google search. It makes it unclear if this is the "monthly" update or bugfixes or whatever. Would be cool to see what's actually improved.

  4. Italian language support


    1. Why don't you extend the language of the software even to Italian?
      Are we children of a minor Adobe by chance?

  5. Enable saving documents locally for Starter plan

    "Starting from April 2020, these features that are currently a part of Adobe XD ...
    Saving to your computer, though you can still save to cloud documents."

    Feature request: Don't remove local saving. Why would you do this? What possible benefit does this have for me as a user? Why would I choose to use a service that doesn't let me save my work locally?

  7. 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…

  8. Allow editing shared specs links' titles - use case for derivative files.

    If I make derivative files from a file that was already shared as a specs link all derivatives will have the same title on the shared specs screen.

    Confusing to devs and clients and a common use case when working on products.

  9. Expand text to outlines

    Because text does not resize the same way objects do, it would be nice to have the option to expand text to outlines the same way Illustrator does. This would turn text into shapes and allow for resizing/shaping.

  10. Keyboard prtotype shortcut triggers

    An extra feature for the keyboard triggers to be able to facilitate shortcut mode as well.

    The feature would be able to set up 2-3 buttons as a trigger to show a new overlay or artboard. (example: Command+K, Command+Space bar or Command+Shift+E).

  11. 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.

  12. Labeling Character Styles and Colors. ex. "Heading 1, Heading 2, Body text" and "Brand color"

    I want to be able to have the option to name my Character Styles, ex. "Heading 1" "Heading 2" "Body text" etc. and Colors "Primary", "Secondary" etc.

  13. Switch between grid and flow view for Share for Development

    There has been a recent change to the share for Dev view. We relied on that view to express flows. Now it is in a grid similar to Zeplin. I get the change, but not the removal. It would be great to be able to switch between the two. This way individual assets are still quickly accessed and the flow can also be expressed. Our devs were looking at the linking and able to view the overall flow. This was determined to be extremely helpful.

  14. Resizing elements within components should resize bounds

    Give us the ability to re-size master components after we create them. Currently if you add/change anything outside of the master component initial size, it gets masked off with no way to resize the master (and then all the instances) of the component.

    Hi XD Community -

    Thanks for your feedback!

    With XD’s August release, you could resize/move/add/remove objects inside a component, and the component bounds will automatically adjust to fit those objects.

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

  15. Move Fix Position when scrolling back to design mode

    i ve just noticed you removed the preserve scroll position from design. This is a horrible thing for me. Doing that forces me to prototype EVERYTHING.

    for example: i have 100 artboards that are unconnected due to time saving ( i dont need to prototype everything ) but moving that button forces me to do it becaus now i cant make a quick preview for my client where he can scroll up and down. Now i will have to connect ALL 100+ boards together.

    why? Because when you are EXPORTING for REVIEW or DEVELOPMENT
    only the connected boards are being…

  16. Indication of master component on the layers panel

    There's nothing that I have found that indicates that a component is a master component or not, other than the green outline(instead of blue) only when selected, and right-clicking every component and seeing whether "Edit Master Component" exists or not in the context-menu. These two current indicators are not helpful at a high level because you have to select or click on each individual component instead of being able to see this information at a glance in the component/layers list.

    The layer/component icon changes when the group is open(revealing the layers inside) or closed. This is not a necessary change…

  17. Opacity 0% keyboard shortcut

    It would be awesome to have a keyboard shortcut to quickly apply 0% opacity to elements.

    As an example, I do this often to keep elements on the page and use them as anchor points in prototypes, despite them not being visible. #ghostbutton

    Thanks for your time! :)

  18. Scrolling to target art-board when prototyping

    When in Prototype Mode, sometimes elements are very far away on canvas.

    Screen should scroll when trying to connect to Prototype Target.

  19. Components use Responsive Resize, even when disabled.

    I need to expand the bounds of a component while retaining the size of the content. This is helpful when changing the position of button prompts from inside to outside of the modal space.

    When I try to resize the component it resizes the content inside, even when Responsive Resize is disabled.

  20. Collapse the property inspector on design specs

    When on the smaller screens (desktop and mobile) the Asset panel takes up a large space of the screen. Create possibility to collapse and open this, or make more mobile friendly.
    To be able to use to whole screen to only view the artboard, click on elements and see their specs on mobile and have space to create comments.
