    • Integration or exportable to developer code

      Once the prototype is completed, allow the option to be integrated into the final solution or exported into the developers code, same as Visual Studios Blend.
      Some options would be nice to have would be python, C++, C#, HTML, etc..

      • Prototyping improvements needed

        I've got over a hundred views on multiple projects. For this issue whenever I segue any elements during prototyping the list name of the views which comes up is not alphabetized. This becomes very cumbersome to find the exact name of the view I need to segue which is a real hassle and as a result wastes a bit of time.
        Also it would be a great time saver to be able to segue the same elements found on multiple views. For example if I want to segue an add button to a particular view and this elements appears on…

          Thanks for your feedback! We prefer that the inputs to UserVoice be granular so that people can upvote specific issues. I see three requests in this idea, two of which are already submitted. Please do upvote these:

          The third one seems to be a bug, as our arrange feature should work when prompted. Please note that there may be objects that were drawn or placed in the middle of your Z-order. You might want to open the layers panel (Cmd-Y) and see if your object is actually moving up and down when you use the keyboard shortcut methods.

          Thanks again for your feedback!

        • Need Layers panel and Layout options for creating a grid column in the artboard.

          First of all, I would really like to have the layers panel. It's actually good since most designers are used to it.

          Secondly, I would really like to have a layout option to create gutter space and column layout which really helps in web design.

          Otherwise, it looks pretty cool, really love the simplicity of it :)

          Cheers,
          Vishnu

          • Repeat Grid - Styles

            Repeat Grids are amazing.

            However, I've found multiple occasions where I want to change a style in one element of a group but don't want this to effect all of my repeated groups.

            It may be that this element I want to change is a link for one particular group but it shouldn't be a link in another. So far, I've did a bit of a workaround by copying the element from the group, clicking out of the repeated grid and then pasting in place and changing the style to the element which now sits on top of the repeat…

                I believe you’re talking about the prerelease forums. We experienced a hiccup earlier this week, but you should be able to access the prerelease forums now. As a side note, everything in the prerelease is considered NDA, so you should post feature requests and feedback in the prerelease forum instead of on UserVoice.

                Thanks,

                -Elaine

                If so please use the one that keeps the recently opened files on the right-hand side. That way you save me the extra work of going to the top nav and accessing a fly out menu to choose my file.

                    • Features for game developers

                      Games are generating many times more money on iOS/Android then any other type of apps. Why ignore such a huge industry?
                      Today we clearly can see shift to midcore/hardcore mobile games like MMO Real Time Strategy.
                      This genre means user is forced to operate with a very complex system whith very high cognitive load.
                      This games age very heavy on UI. Basically 90% of such games is UI.
                      For example our upcoming sci-fi title consists of 162 unique screens with many states.
                      We need a tool which will ease the process of prototyping/designing/iterating/approving the screens using our existing UIKit (a…

                      • Break apart link lists

                        To link listed textlink labels individually, the designer must deconstruct the work of positioning and spacing of each label. This is very bad design experience and lowers productivity. I recommend providing a feature to break apart each individual label that is spaced more than 1 pixel apart. Or providing a hit spot to place over each label and linking the hit spots, as in Axure.

                        • Page Order according to the way they are ordered on the stage

                          When presenting a bigger project with many pages, I had trouble to show them the pages when presenting it online. I think the arrows are a great way to go through page 1 until page x. But when the order is random it does not make any sense to use it, so I used the local XD-file with the stage.

                          I suggest to take the order for the page by using the position of the upper left corner of a page. I am open to any other possibility that gives me the possibility to control the order of the pages.

                            • Menu Expansion- Drag & Drop

                              I really like the idea of Xd but it needs to be quicker to use.

                              Can you expand the existing menu so that it contains common website/app elements that can be simply dragged and dropped into our prototypes? You already have this within some of your other programs.

                              Eg Drag and droppable:
                              expandable/collapsable menus, form elements, scrolling effects, mouse effects, states, swatches, text options(colour, kerning, header 1, 2 etc), modal windows, buttons, carousel, jumbotron, image effects, lists etc.

                              Also a link to cc libraries & assets would be great.

                              I think expanding the menu like this would save a lot…

                                  Since I am use to working in InDesign it kinda annoys me that I havn't got the same opportunities to shaping my text in different styles (not talking about font) as it it's possible in InDesign. Would be awesome if more of the general features from InDesign were implemented for instant am I at the mount trying to figurer out if it is possible to make some kind of hyperlink. (Beside that really awesome program you guys are making her differently gonna use it in the feature :D )

                                    Thanks for your feedback! If you’re interested in text styles, we do have specific text style features that we’re tracking separately, so I’d encourage you to search for those specifically (for instance, underline text or superscript) and upvote on those.

                                    Regarding hyperlink, you can use Share to get a link to your shared prototype. https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/help/share-designs-and-prototypes.html

                                    Hope that helps!

                                      Since it’s been a number of months since we requested more information about this feature, I’m closing this. Please do re-file if you think this is something you’re really interested in, and please provide more information when re-filing the issue.

                                      Thanks,

                                      -Elaine

                                    • Turn off resizing/rotation handles when zoomed out or object is very small

                                      When working wth any item, there is a scale/rotate/selection box around them. However, when zoomed out, and especially on small objects, you end up scaling/rotating, instead of selecting/moving the item.

                                      It would be nice to have the scale/rotate options automatically turn off, when you are "zoomed out X amount." That is, you are probably moving the item around the screen or looking at things, etc, and not trying to scale/rotate that object, especially the small objects.

                                        As we haven’t heard a response to our query from a couple of years ago on this ticket, I’m closing this suggestion as inactive. Please feel free to file this again if it’s still an issue.

                                      • Depth design

                                        As in the design of materials Google, if you could play with the depth of the elements in the interface that is designing the final design be achieved much more consistent and scalable. Utilziar could also be a layer system, the best Photoshop style to keep adding layers and replace them quickly to try different concepts without having to create an entirely new view.

                                          As it’s been three months since we’ve requested more information (and we’ve released layers since then), marking this as action required. Please do file this issue again if you think we still need to do this.

                                          Thanks!

                                        • Grille de composition et les majuscules pour le texte

                                          Bravo pour ce super soft ;) Il ne manque pas grand chose pour qu'il soit top. En particulier 2 choses font cruellement défaut : les grilles de composition ("disposition des repères" dans photoshop) et un outil texte plus riche (mettre la police en capitale, des marges dans les blocs, ...).
