  1. Design

    It is very necessary to add:
    - dotted line
    - uppercase letter
    - can change the border line to outside and inside
    - moving image inside the frame. Something like a clipping mask

  2. Select the Btns states like Rolls Over, editing option in Photoshop/Illustrator, adding Personas sections and

    Hello, I am a designer and really like working with Adobe XD.

    I hope that in the future, there will be the option to add/change states to the icons - ex. to create buttons that change color/size when the mouse hovers over/rolls over before clicking and going to another screen. It wouyld also be helpful an option where the image can be edited in Photoshop/Illustrator, saved and updated in XD, like Smart-objects work between Photoshop and Illustrator.

    Finally, to have a section dedicated to the creation of Personas and Users Journeys would be a great adds-on, since many prototyping software…

  4. I really want to use XD, but I want it to perform like InDesign.

    I really want to use XD, but I want it to act and perform like a layout program (InDesign). Layers, guides, text frame options, image frames etc. It needs ALL the basic functionality of InDesign. I keep wanting to go back to InDesign to lay-out/design concepts b/c basic things like guides and layers don't exist.

    Thanks for your feedback! We have a lot of other InDesign fans as well, and they’ve already seeded our database with suggestions that are based on their favorite features. I’d suggest that you search in the XD UserVoice and upvote your favorite features!

    By the way, we do have a layers panel that you can play with. Hit Cmd+Y to launch the contextual layers panel and check it out!

  5. Creative Cloud Files Preview

    Currently, the only way to get a prototype on a device is to have the file located in a creative cloud folder... which total bonk.

    I dont WANT to use that service, I have 2 other cloud storage services already, and i hate both of them. I want to be able to store files locally on the device and be able to delete them. I also want to be able to sync (upload/refresh) a file from anywhere on my machine, which means I need to map to it from the app.

    Rather than change or duplicate my current workflow to…

  8. Assets Features

    I love how easy the new Assets panel is, and the following features could make it even better:

    1- Double click an asset, such as a color or font, to edit it.
    2- Drag assets to sort them.
    3- Selecting an item from an dartboard highlights its color and/or font.
    4- For the tooltips to appear instantly when hovering over an asset in the asset window. For example, when hovering over a color to instantly display its hex code. I currently have to hover over an asset and wait for the tooltip to appear so I can see if it…

  11. Link objects for text edits

    I want to link text objects within a single board, or across multiple boards, so that when I change text in one object all linked text objects update to the new text.

    A simple use case:
    Update button label "Submit" on all buttons and across all boards to "Save".

  12. Improve Text Rendering at zoomed out views

    Text rendering is very poor at anything other than 100% view.

    Fitting to screen produces scratchy text lines — much poorer than the way InDesign would handle such a thing.
    Please improve this.

  13. settings

    I use the Windows version so idk how far the Mac version is in this, but where is "Settings"?! I'm used to customizing software I use so it perfectly match my needs. Here I can't even change keybindings, color theme, defaults, etc..
    I think this is really important feature - every software should have settings.

  14. create subclass

    Hi Guys
    I think should be great if when I made a symbol, I can change some properties without change the root symbol, the capacity to choose between create a new symbol or a sub symbol (the sub symbol take the properties no affected in the edition) with this property we can change general properties and affect the children.

    thanks

  17. text

    - Text with list feature, and able to change the bullet style
    - Allows tabs key in the text
    - Lines spacing should just be priority, e.g beside font size, location is not intuitive enough
    - Able to set global font colour and style, Eg. H1, H2, body

    Thanks for your feedback! Just in general, UserVoice is best when you file an individual idea instead of a group of ideas. Most of the ideas you’ve submitted are already in our database. Please upvote for them!

  20. awsome for new users! But you should add some more features like some of them in sketch>

    While prototyping more virtual options would have worked great. But again this is very good platform for learners or beginers.
