  1. Snap to nearest graphically-balanced position on arrow movement

    The ability to (key+arrow) move an item directly to a spot that makes sense, according to certain preset values.

    Eg. you could move an item always 10px away from another item, or directly center an item between two other elements nearby with just one (key+arrow) combination.

    See example below. Thanks!

  2. Move Resize Handles, so that they stay on screen

    Picture the following scenario: You have a very large object and a very small one. You want to resize the large object with some relation to the smaller object, which requires you to zoom in. However now that you have zoomed in, the handles for your larger object are off-screen.

    It would be nice if you could either, resize an object using the entire edge as a handle, or just make the handles move along the edge so that they are always on screen, even when zooming in.

    to illustrate my problem I have attached a screenshot with an indication…

  3. Adobe XD Wireframing tool as InDesign Rectangle Frame Tool

    Adobe XD has the rectangle tool, but the rectangle is an element which is a shape itself, destined to be used as a design element.

    The feature suggestion is to have a rectangle frame tool, which it's main function is to serve as a wireframing tool, rather tha a design element. The addition is to upgrade the rectangle tool for supporting converting to text.

    The wireframing tool should be able to be easily converted to other elements, like a rectangle, image frame or text box:
    a) If you set colors, you convert to a rectangle design element (as it currently…

  4. Draw new object above currently selected object

    If I have a layer selected and then create a new Rectangle object, I'd expect that layer to be created directly above the layer I have selected (or even below would make sense) instead its created as the top most layer with in the current group of layers.

    This is annoying because often the size of that rectangle depends on other objects in the group and because the layer is above them all you can see them if the new rectangle is going to be bigger them and it covers them up.

  5. Tab navigation

    I'd like to be able to change a subsection of a page based on my selection, like you can see at http://tabtab.be/

    タブで遷移

    日本語で失礼します。

    現在、プロトタイプモードでは、ページ全体の遷移しかできません。
    例えば下記ページのように、タブで選択した箇所のみ情報が変わるような遷移はできないでしょうか。
    http://tabtab.be/

    情報サイトでは、タブ切り替えをよく使います。
    このような遷移がプロトタイプモードで作れたら、イメージ共有がスムーズになります。
    現在この機能がないため、XDをプロジェクトで使うのをためらっております。
    ぜひ追加機能をお願いします。

  6. Change Artboard title font size with Zoom level

    Current (0.6.24.10) version, when user zoom in/out, the Artboard font rendering size does not change. It will look better if the Artboard title can zoom with zoom level accordingly based on 100% zoom level.

  7. Ability to make interaction points dialog explaining functionality in prototype

    Similar to Microsoft visio this feature will give users the Ability to make interaction points explaining functionality in the prototype. The user will be able to draw an arrow pointing at the element linking to the dialog box. A dialog box will give user info on functionality or explain Interaction point.
    This feature will show in prototype mode and give the option to enable in share prototype mode.

    As a user, I can draw an interaction box.
    As a user, I can link interaction box to shape/element/ect.
    As a user, I can choose to enable this when I share a…

  8. Shortcut to cycle through elements of a group

    It would be clever to have the ability to cycle between the different elements of a group with a shortcut. Ex: I have 5 elements grouped together, and I need to change the fill/stroke of all of them from white to blue. 2 elements have a fill and 3 of them have strokes, so selecting them all at once isn't possible. If I could direct select one element within a group, and then Tab through the elements to cycle through the elements of the group, it would save alot of time and precise clicking within the group. It can be…

  9. Copy and Paste Type From Photoshop

    The XD team just released awesome improvements to design mode in the March Update with the support for copy and paste from Photoshop and Illustrator.

    However, one cannot copy and past type from Photoshop to XD without copying the type as a raster or an SVG.

    A similar problem was addressed for Illustrator here:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13059984-copying-pasting-text-from-illustrator

    It would be great if the solution for illustrator - the ability to copy text and paste it in XD as a text element - was made available for photoshop.

  10. Preserve element name as ID name on SVG export

    We use the SVG output of AdobeXD to build our websites faster. But the only problem is the lack of meaningful names of the SVG elements in the exported file. It should be very helpful to name any element or group inside AdobeXD and preserve that name as svg id when exporting to svg. Including color and gradient names, repeaters names and interactive click spots.

  11. "Dip to Black" transition

    When jumping between user flows (i.e. illustrating what a different user would see), a "dip to black" transition would be very useful. It's a powerful transition used in film editing to indicate a change in context, or time passing.

  12. [Windows] Make mousewheel zoom shortcut Space instead of Ctrl

    The reason is that 'Ctrl+Mouse Wheel' for zooming is very uncomfortable due to 'Space+left Mouse press' for moving your mouse pointer. Additionally, touchpads for Windows are not able to move your mouse pointer to left or right.

  13. Move the lock/hide buttons

    I am always annoyingly clicking on the lock and show/hide buttons when working with the layers palette! I only work on my laptop, so real estate matters. I keep the layers palette narrow (the default setting), so when looking in a 4-deep nested group in a symbol, I hardly see the text description. And since those buttons don't appear until you hover over an object, I'm always accidentally locking my objects without actually selecting them as I intended.

    Please consider moving them or floating them off the panel, perhaps only in a narrow view. Or letting me lock/hide them by…

  14. Add app shortcuts and recent files to Windows jumplist

    I would love for XD to support in the next update a jumplist, for us to easily access of recent files, pinned files on the jumplist, UI kits and some few app shortcuts for easy access/launch on them, both if we pin XD to our Windows taskbar, and to it's tile

    Here's the concept I made. I put some time into it. I hope you see this and consider this. I'm very certain the jump list support is just a small work to implement, I know it. Please do it on next update, most CC apps already have this. i…

  15. Add LDPI and TVDPI to asset export tool

    Although you cover the most common Android densities, sometimes you need to cover these resolutions for certain devices, for compatibility and testing purposes. It would be great if you would add a 0,75x (LDPI) and 1,33x (TVDPI) to your android asset export options.

    Photoshop and Sketch have a similar tool in which it lets you manually set your export sizes.

  16. Allow control over whether or not the scroll position is maintained

    app preview on iPad cannot back to the header

    Hello,

    When i install the adobe Xd app on the iPad, every artboard all scroll from the header to footer perfectly in first time. But, when i back to previous artboard, it will always start the scroll from the footer, not the header.

    the bug only happens on the preview app, but not on the software of my laptop and the share link.

    This is currently as designed, as we maintain the scroll position on mobile. I’ll change this to a feature request. Over time, we’ll be taking a look at allowing control over this over time.

    Thanks,

  17. Enable Applescript hooks

    All adobe products have at least basic hooks to get current file name or window properties. Personally I use these kind of applescript requests to keep track of what files are open and being worked on.

  19. Show distance (Smart Guide measurements) when close to edges of artboard or other object

    Say you have a button of some sort and you want it to be in the lower corner of a dialog box. When closing in the size of the dialog box or when positioning the button near a corner or the box, show the measurements to the edges of the box it is near. Attached is an illustration.

    (Currently, XD shows distance measurements only when the object you're dragging is snapped to the center or top/bottom/left/right of the other object -- not when it's close to the edge but not snapped).
