  1. Apple Watch Preview App

    Apple watch Adobe XD app (that runs on Apple watch watch).
    Wouldn't require many additional features compared to its iPhone counterpart.


    • Support for 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch sized artboards within Adobe XD (desktop)

    • Support for linked objects/hotspots within the watch previewer app

    • Transition effects visible within the watch previewer app

    • Close prototype by using force touch within the watch previewer app

    • Support for fixed headers

  2. Reorder layers in Mask via Layers panel

    At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

  3. Color shift in shared prototype

    I am about to use it for design prototype for work. As I tested it, I found out the colour between design view and share online result have different colours.
    Please check the attached files. I tested with my own file and the examples from adobe.

  4. Import SVG with preserved viewBox boundary

    Many icon sets define a specific (often square) area that represents the boundaries for all icons. In the SVG format, this boundary is specified by the SVG viewBox attribute. Individual icons will have varying measurements for their vector shapes, e.g. a "minus" icon's vector-shape will have a larger width than height. When scaling icons, if you can rely on the viewBox size, you can scale all icons to consistent sizes (e.g. 24x24 or 48x48).

    Currently when importing an SVG icon into Adobe XD, the object will have the vector-shapes measurements, so that scaling multiple icons from the same icon set…

  5. Place images like InDesign

    It would be great if XD can place images or psd files into design like indesign. And also linked files must be updated in XD after editing images or psd files.

    For example; while creating a landing page, the hero image is a complicated design; designed in photoshop. Right now if i wanted to edit hero image i have to open psd file, edit it, export it and place it to XD. But it can be like indesign; cmd+double click placed psd file on XD then PS opens, i edit and save then on XD updated new image on screen.

  6. Escape button consistency

    When I type in a text box on the artboard and I hit escape it keeps the text I just changed and takes me out of editing mode with the cursor.

    When I type in a layer to change the name of it and I hit escape it removes the changes I just made and take me out of editing mode with the cursor. To effectively keep the changes I must hit return on the keyboard.

    If I hit return on the keyboard while editing a text box on the artboard I get what I would expect -- a carriage…

  7. Publishing - choose what & how to publish

    Hello,

    I love Adobe Experience Design but I something find myself overwhelmed while working (because I like to organize certain stuff in certain ways). For that I thought about a solution that may help others too.

    Publishing without linking (I'm currently working on a project and I have to do changes pretty often because I have to add/replace/change pages and locations and I have to start re-linking everything a lot)
    Publish only the "checked" artboards (for example, I want to publish only the homepage and login page, but for now, in order to do that I have to link only…

  8. Some SVG gradients are missing

    SVG gradients are not rendered correctly when importing this image in AdobeXD.
    See the reference file with embedded bitmaps to see how it is rendered compared to how it should be rendered.

  9. Repeat grid - move next row down when adding content makes items bigger

    I don't know it's considered as a bug or if it's beaucause it's not final yet.


    1. 0.5.0.4 Beta


    2. Having a repeat grid with content in it already. Trying to add new element within the groups of the grid (which because of the logic of no layers, adds the object in each duplicate). Finally, move the whole group (normally considered as the reference object for the grid) to adjust the spacing in height of the content.


    3. I was hoping when I drag the repeat grid handle down, the following content would take in account the respacing.


    4. It does not.


    5. Video attached.

    Hi Winnie,

    Thank you for your feedback! We already have a feature in the backlog for adjusting the cell size based on the content and that will solve the issue you describe. Currently the size of the repeat grid cells is fixed and only their padding adjustable.

    Kind regards,
    Florin

  10. [Windows] Exporting from Xd (.svg) to Adobe Illustrator - Blur Not Showing

    Hi,

    Blur for the exported SVG will be implemented in a future version of XD. Will let you know once that is publicly available.

    Cheers,

  11. XD Jira Plugin - Leverage JIRA Filters on Shared XD Boards

    Enter a custom JIRA Filter ID either in the XD Plugin interface or the JIRA App Management.

    This would populate the Filter by drop down in the JIRA XD Plugin interface.

    Benefit: Leverage JIRAs powerful filtering to group Stories that need design and allows design teams to see the same group of Issues being worked on.

    Note: For shared XD projects/boards.

  12. Intersection is misaligned

    When using Intersection in 0.6.20.7 Beta, the resulting object is misaligned from the two shapes position. See GIF below:

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting in touch. This is currently the expected behavior, though we are hoping to improve it in the future. When you create a boolean group including an image, the image then becomes a fill for the resulting path. The image will be scaled to cover the path, similar to the css background-property value “cover”.

    If you want the image to stay in place, I would suggest using a Mask instead, which will keep the relative size / position of the image intact.

    You might be interested in checking out two topics over in the feature request forum:

    More flexibility when using images as a fill:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17197367-drag-image-into-bounding-box

    Automatically resizing an image to fit a mask group:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13125480-fit-content-proportionally

    I hope that answers your questions,
    -Bear

  13. Color asset edit should work for component instances in different documents

    When using a component instance in a different document, changes to the linked color asset (in the new document) should update the instances.

    There seems to be no reason for the current behavior. I work with multiple products with the same base UI differed mostly by color.

    It actually looks more like a bug, but this ticket says otherwse: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/38063995-linked-components-not-reacting-to-edit-fill-color
