  3. Allow the option to default the selection tool to direct select

    It would be great if we had an option of whatever we want to select group or specific layer via select tool default options. I guess it's much more frequently used to pick just one element instead of picking whole group.

    So for me, for example, it would be much easier if by default it would be to just pick one emelement by click, rather then to press CMD all the time i want to change something inside of group.

  4. Support Bezier point data on export of SVG

    I have issue with SVG generated by XD for usage in Icon Font generator. I use this one: https://www.npmjs.com/package/gulp-iconfont

    There is online generator:
    http://nfroidure.github.io/svgiconfont/

    I attach one example file generate by XD: heart-xd.svg
    Result: https://cl.ly/272g0m1g202H/Image%202018-06-11%20at%208.16.09%20odp..png

    And one re-saved by Illustrator: heart-illustator.svg
    Result: https://cl.ly/28382e3k2v0C/Image%202018-06-11%20at%208.16.56%20odp..png

    Because if I open the svg in illustrator and re-save it, it'll work fine. I am suspecting the svg syntax in XD doesn't work properly.

    I got information that XD SVG does not export bezier point data so scenario you’re describing is expected with how the feature is currently designed.

    Maybe connected to this request:

  5. Redline Capability

    It would be nice to have a measurement tool in the toolbox area that allows the designer to create redline layers. Fireworks used to have a ruler tool that would allow something like this. Once a design is approved, it can be quickly marked up with padding and margin spacing info in the same document without having to go to a third party tool.

  6. Unnatural scrolling on iPad

    When scrolling through artboards it happens very unnaturally. As soon as my finger moves 1cm it swipes to the next artboard.

    A more natural behavior is that the artboard swipes "with my finger".

  7. Reference points to the vertical and horizontal centers when editing a path

    When I'm distorting a shape (say a rectangle) into another shape (say a trapezoid), I'd like to know see reference guide to the vertical and horizontal centers, so I know how far to move the distortion points.

  8. Pan with ctrl+scrolling the mouse wheel

    It would be nice if you could pan the same way as with other Adobe products using ctrl+scrolling the mouse wheel. I find myself zooming in when trying to pan.

  9. A Way to Block Some Users from From Commenting

    I had some issues with an employee who was commenting a storm of uneducated comments on some of my published prototypes.

    The prototypes I post are mainly for handing off specs to developers and to discuss aspects of the UI with them. Other people outside this workflow are able and welcome to look at the prototypes. However, it is our expectation that people outside the Design-Dev relationship should refrain from making comments. If they do make a comment, they . should only make comments that pertain to their profession and not to propose design changes since they are not designers…

  10. Remove the padding around artboards on file open

    Currently when you open a XD document , it opens very much zoomed out.

    It could be nice that when you open a document, all artboards fit to the screen.

    It would only save a few seconds but using the software on a daily basis and these seconds add up eventually.

  11. Import based on HEX value

    Shortcut for color picker and import of hex directly to color library.

    First off, great tool you have created so far. Secondly I wanted to propose to have shortcuts for the color picker. I find the new version pretty great already, but what I am really missing is a shortcut, similar to that of photoshop, illustrator, indesign, …
    My guess is that since you have 3 distinct colors to choose (fill, outline and gradient) this poses a problem. I was wondering, if you still can’t make a version, like that of PS. Press "i" to choose the tool (should be…

  12. Add PDF margins on export

    I work for a large ad agency. Currently we design in InDesign and export a PDF with margins to route through the agency and to and from our large, lucrative client. The margins are essential because we annotate the files. The PDF goes from department to department where stakeholders comment. The PDF is created by the art dept and lands back there and comments are addressed after it makes it's rounds.

    We would need to be able to create margins on our PDF exports to hold the anotations in order to even consider using XD. I think that one tweak…

  13. Organize images used in the project

    Right now I can't control the images used in my project.. For an example.. I'm building a website and put a image in the background. I needed to change it and I accidentally dragged an image in TIFF format with 85mb. After that I replace that image with the correct one. Now my project has doubled in size and I can not "delete" it from the project... It seems to be still there in the .XD file...

    I do not know if this is a cache problem or something like that ..

    But I believe that software should have a…

  15. Published Prototype Interactions too Subtle

    Loving the updates but my clients are confused. As a designer, the prototype layout makes sense — As a non-designer, it's not clear what actions should be taken.

    I think the Invision prototype screen is initially more intuitive. For instance, it first opens in fullscreen mode (allowing for that first look excitement from the client) but has a sticky container that clearly tells the viewer they can take more actions to view and add comments and see additional artboards.

    In short, I think the prototype needs to be catered more towards clients.

    Thank you!

  17. Zoom to layer in artboard

    It would be a good way to find elements using layer panel. right-clicking element and selecting "Show in Artboard" and selected element will be shown in artboard.

    Instead of selecting layer and then pressing Cmd+3.

  18. Install UI kit of the artboard type you're using

    Can it be integrated with Adobe Sensei in future? That will surely automate few things for the end users

    1) UI kits can be automatically downloaded and installed within XD. Suppose a user is working on the android artboard, he will get all the android related UI kits on the go.

    2) Specific UI elements can be searched by name and instantly applied in the design system while working, it will surely save time when one had to find specific UI element in a huge document.

    Think of a side panel of UI library integrated with Adobe Sensei doing all…

  19. Add a right-hand handle to point text

    It'd be nice to ALSO have a right-side handle for point text, with adjustment anchored to top + left.

    The existing bottom handle that's anchored to top is a bit awkward for me.
