  1. Baseline shift

    I sometimes need to adjust the position of the trademark or register trademark icons in my screens, after changing the size, but I cannot because there is no baseline shift.

    • Save Prototype to desktop for review

      Ok, I have a file that has been lost but I have published on Behance and I have a Published link. It would Great If I could (Save or Download) from Published.
      Or If a client wanted to send feedback but they also wanted to Save and Print a copy they could also Download the file from here too maybe as a PDF or a Folder of images

        Thanks for your feedback! If I understand this request correctly, you’re actually asking TWO things = 1. to download the original design file from the shared prototype, and 2. to be able to enable customers to download a copy of the shared prototype to their machines. Is that correct?

      • Minimize text box and add "read more"

        I'm looking for a easy way to create a expandable text box with the click of a button (e.g read more)

        This is often seen in app stores and in news articles that that are behind a pay wall.
        With the text box minimized you should be able the see the content below (screenshots etc) but when you expand the content should be moved further down. Maybe this is already possible but I can't find the feature either in the software or in a tutorial. Of course I can build this my own with animations, but shouldn't there be a…

          Thanks for your feedback. Right now, the way to do this is using auto-animate, which will enable you to move other objects out of the way. I’m guessing you’re looking for a tool that will enable you to automatically reflow the rest of your page when you expand a section, is that right?

        • File: Open File dialog - Recent files with long filenames get truncated

          Problem: When selecting File: Open, the dialog box shows my recent documents with trucated filenames making it difficult to see the differences between two versions of the same document.

          Suggested feature: It would be helpful if the ”Recent” view of the ”Open” dialog box could display the full filenames.

          Background: I work with a lot of different iterations of the same document so the image preview might be the same or very similar, with long filenames as the only differentiator.

          Thanks for a great product!

            • Text playing on sharing

              while using text playing, it ask to sign-in.
              this shouldn't be happen, for example if i want to share with my client & he dont have adobe account or for user testing. it will be a gr8 mess.
              like it happened to me with my client for user testing. THIS ISSUE SHOULD BE FIX

                Thanks for your feedback. If you publish as a public link, your client won’t need to sign in to play the prototype. Your client will only need to sign in (as a guest, if they don’t want to create an Adobe ID) to leave a comment.

                Are you looking for something else?

              • Allow downloading images from web viewer

                Allow easy downloading of images from the web view. It looks like the app deliberately obfuscates this ability (right click -> download image is not possible in browser).
                Seeing as there is no built in version control or reference ID for version of images, downloading images is necessary to take snapshots of progress.

                • Nudging with option

                  Make it possible to move an object with the arrow keys when option/alt is pressed. Right now you have to release the key in order to move it but then you don't always see the pixel distances.

                    It will be awesome if you can consider XD for creating Artwork for Instagram Stories, Posts, FB, etc

                      This might be a dumb question, but have you tried using Adobe Spark Post for this? I’d love to hear why you’re interested in using XD for this over something that was created specifically for this purpose.

                        • Access Shared for Review documents with XD mobile apps

                          Currently if you share a document using the Share for Review function the receiver can only see this document on a web browser. This has limitations, both on viewing experience (browser chrome gets in the way) and performance.

                          It would be great if the prototype could be seen directly inside the mobile XD apps instead, under the Shared with You section.

                            Message from Arun:

                            While I see your point about browser chrome still present when viewing a prototype on mobile web browser, I am not sure I understood the issue with performance.

                            Can you elaborate more on why you felt the performance of viewing prototypes on mobile web is slower? Any specific examples that you can share will help us dig into this further and improve the experience.

                            On the viewing experience as well, we have recently made some improvements where-in maximum real estate is now used to show the prototype in its glory. Browser chrome on most browsers go away after some time allowing you to see the full height prototype. Please give this a try and let us know your feedback. I am eager to hear more from you.

                                  While I understand the need for precision, creating grids that snap off-pixel actually makes designing for screens less accurate, as it often forces elements to anti-alias, leading to less crisp artwork when you output. Are you absolutely sure you need columns that are off-pixel? If so, can you explain why?

                                • Position Overlay Relative To Object

                                  Requesting the ability to position an overlay relative to another object rather than the artboard. If you move the anchored object, so does the overlay.

                                  If you position an overlay to align with an object, and then later that object moves, now you need to remember to also move the overlay's position.

                                    • Be able to export the COLOR assets in a list to share to developers

                                      I would like to be able to just export a list of all the colors I use in my design in a list, for the developer to know what colors he has to add to his css file.
                                      Also that would also be good for the typography assets.

                                      • Resize layer in mask

                                        Masks are completely broken and pretty useless in XD currently. You can't reorder layers, use clipping masks, or even resize a layer inside a mask. Once you create a mask group, it's basically a locked in and un-editable layer causing lots of frustration and confusion.

                                        • 100% Interactive PDF Prototype

                                          In packaging design, you can generate a 360° degree interactive pdf were the client can move the packaging around to look at it from every angle.

                                          Imagine being able to build a pdf presentation (InDesign etc.) and placing 100% Interactives Prototypes on to the slides. (With the device around it or just the screen size).

                                          Ps: I hope responsive prototypes will be available before the end of 2019 #setAdeadlineAndMakeIt.
