  1. Voice trigger in embed mode doesn't work

    It seems that voice triggered actions are not supported in embed mode. Is it by design? If yes, why? Can you fix it any soon?

    Message from Mark, the PM: Voice triggers are not supported within embedded prototypes. This is due to most browsers not allowing iframes to have access to the microphone for security reasons.

    We are currently working on better messaging around this browser restriction, sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

  2. Solid text underline

    Text underline was recently added to Adobe XD. The current implementation adds a space around descenders. This is not how underline looks in Chrome by default.

    In order create website designs that accurately reflect how they will look online, it would be great to have a way to show solid underlines that go straight through descenders, as they do in Chrome.

  4. Close preview window on ESC key press

    Using ESC key instead cmd + w feels more natural in this workflow.

    Thank you for your feedback. But some users utilize the preview window to design as well, for real-time updates. Hitting ESC could break that workflow. Very soon, you’ll be able to preview on both preview window and mobile devices (iOS and Android), to design, prototype and test prototypes. Stay tuned!

  5. Voice speak and voice speach playback not needing to log in to test!

    So, here I am trying to test my prototype with voice and speak features for people who do not read, and what? Why does it need to have a login to work the features? and only a few of them? I think is totally unfair to ask the person who is testing a layout to have to make a log in.. The person might do not want to comment on the file, but just do a use test, so I can't send the test link anybody who does not have an Adobe culture.. It is so hard to get the…

    I’ve attached Mark’s comment here for you:

    Thanks for the question. We require a login for use of voice/speech features for security reasons, as we need to ensure the request is actually coming from an authorized source (like an XD prototype). I understand this requires an extra step or two for user testing, but it’s unfortunately necessary to maintain a secure platform.

    I hope that helps explain things a bit…

  8. blur on zoom out

    Not really a feature, but the blurred effect over the screen on zoom out control is unnecessary (and not that great to look at).

    We currently do this for performance reasons instead of waiting for everything to process before displaying to you. Our proposal is that the performance of XD is more important than displaying everything perfectly rendered at all times. While we would love to have zoom that is both smooth and perfectly rendered, it’s not possible right now without taking up a ton of your memory or making XD super slow when zooming out.

    Hope that explains why we do it!

  9. Don't expire XD every few months

    I already had a bad enough experience with Adobe Scout (which also expires after a set period). This thing smells like Fireworks. Make it act like that -- as a perpetual program that runs like Photoshop or Animate or whatever.

  13. Support XD mobile on iOS 12 and below

    I want to preview my project at iPad with XD App, but now it isn't possible
    there is msg: This file was created with a newer version od Adobe XD. This version of the file format is incompatible. Please upgrade the version...
    But I can't upgrade version, because new version is for iOS 13, and I can't upgrade system. Should I buy new tablet? Why? I pay regular licence. The software for testing usability for App is completly unusable. This is tricky situation and very annoying when You pay for licence a lot of money.

  16. Color Transparency should reflect in the color value code

    I choose a blue, then change the transparency to 50%; that is no longer blue, it is now a very very very light blue; I would like to see the value of that; otherwise there's no point in using XD to create color palettes, as I can't document the value other the saying something like " #245D97 @ 50% transparency"

    Thanks for your feature request. Unfortunately, transparency is a critical part of ensuring that developers understand what should be opaque vs. transparent. If you’d like to copy the actual value without transparency, you can draw a new object and use the eyedropper to sample your completed color to get an opaque version of it for your color palette.

  17. UX XD tutorial mistake

    Your tutorial never asks me to switch to Prototype mode during the 8th Step when I am first starting out with XD. Not really hard to figure out, but a tutorial needs to be complete and foolproof

  18. XD's "Preferences" menu is grayed out. Why not just make it disappear until XD is ready to have a Preferences menu.

    It's a bad experience to see something that you can't touch. What a tease! Well, at lease in the case of XD, the grayed out "Preferences" menu is a bad experience.

  19. Hide preview shortcut

    As a user, I really often use the preview mode to see the results of what I'm drawing and to test all the actions.

    To do so there is the very handy shortcut command + enter which allows you to open the preview mode. Would it be possible to assign the same shortcut to hide it? So when the preview panel isn't opened and I click cmd + enter I will open it and if I click it again when it's opened I would close it.

    This double functionality would increase my workflow by a lot so I wouldn't have…

    Thanks for the suggestion! There is a system shortcut you can use to close the window. On Mac you can use Command+W, and on Windows you can use Alt+F4. Hopefully that helps.

  20. Confusing Copy interface

    Sharing mode: Share for review

    I still find the interaction with the comments confusing. Specifically resolving and responding.
    As you can see, those words are very similar in french which had cause me to click the wrong button (resolve instead of respond) more than twice.

    This action (unfortunately) cannot be undone with Ctrl Z.
    :'(
