      • Allow Noun Project App to work with XD

        When dragging icons from Noun Project App into XD there is an issue with XD not recognizing SVG's. The SVG icon is only recognized as a png element? When doing the same in other programs (illustrator or photoshop) or in your competition Sketch this is not a problem! Currently, the workaround is to drag from noun project into Illustrator and then copy into XD but obviously annoying.

          • Prototype comments link to location in design

            It would be nice if you clicked on a comment from a prototype that you go to the location the comment is attached to in the design. Mostly useful wen you have large designs with many comments.

            • Keyboard triggered transitions: 508 Compliance for Navigating Shared Prototypes without a mouse.

              To meet 508 compliance standards for our company internal users/editors/designers must be able to navigate the UI graphics without a mouse. This means using tab, enter, arrows, or whatever. It would be helpful to set multiple options for transitions so a user can tap or tab. This would mean that symbols on an artboard that are wired to another artboard can be selected without a mouse by hitting tab and enter. Symbols could be ordered as well within an artboard (similar to the "home" button) so they are selected by "tab" in a specific order.

                • Drag Reverse to Previous Artboard

                  The drag is only limited by its feature to create the transitions to the next screen. BUT if we want to go back to the previous artboard with a reverse drag, you can't.

                  The problem is if we want to show you can drag to back to the previous artboard screen, you have to create a new screen. So a carousel that has 3 artboards, now you have to create at least 6 artboards.

                  This suggestion of mine is to reduce the number of screens that take up Adobe XD's limited pasteboard and reduce the workload to prototype these interactions.

                  • Export artboard as high quality image(s)

                    This was previously suggested but it seemed like it needed to be reposted (if not, feel free to delete this request).

                    Outside of maybe SVG for obviously (?) reasons, the exported file looks pixelated. The exports do not look presentable--I've been better off with screenshots but screenshots are screenshots. I would love if this request gets a second look.

                    • undo

                      This idea was posted before but closed? WoW - not sure why - this feature is desperately needed. Often have to just quit XD and start over again because there is not easy/intuitive way to undo things.

                      • Display informations for developers

                        When I send my mockup to developers, they need all informations about size, font, etc. It would be nice to have an option to display those informations :)

                        • Can't publish prototypes that don't contain interaction?

                          I just updated my XD to 2.0 (2.0.32.10). I'm using a mid-15 MBPr. I just realized this morning when I tried to get a sharing link of the prototype for my colleague that XD now does not allow me to generate a sharing link because the home artboard doesn't contain any interaction.
                          Somehow I can understand the design logic behind this, but still there's something that doesn't add up. If XD are preventing prototypes that contain no interaction to be published and get their sharing links, then what's the Previous Page / Next Page buttons being in the online preview…

                              I believe the new version of Illustrator released in November had some changes to address this issue. Could you please try again and let us know if this issue is fixed?

                              Thanks,

                              -Elaine

                              11月にリリースされたIllustratorの新しいバージョンでは、この問題に対処するためにいくつかの変更が加えられたと思います。 この問題が修正された場合はもう一度お試しください。

                            • Position Overlay Relative To Object

                              Requesting the ability to position an overlay relative to another object rather than the artboard. If you move the anchored object, so does the overlay.

                              If you position an overlay to align with an object, and then later that object moves, now you need to remember to also move the overlay's position.

                              • 100% Interactive PDF Prototype

                                In packaging design, you can generate a 360° degree interactive pdf were the client can move the packaging around to look at it from every angle.

                                Imagine being able to build a pdf presentation (InDesign etc.) and placing 100% Interactives Prototypes on to the slides. (With the device around it or just the screen size).

                                Ps: I hope responsive prototypes will be available before the end of 2019 #setAdeadlineAndMakeIt.

                                    Jonathan’s comment: Hi Rene, if you copy paste objects or the entire artboard in prototype mode, we do copy the interactions as well. I’m sorry this is not working for you.

                                    Can you confirm if this doesn’t work in prototype mode? Please help me with your XD version and Operating System version.

                                      This is expected behavior, as the Android browser will add the overlay without our control. You can either accommodate for this by shortening your viewport OR by using the Adobe XD application to load your document, which will show in full screen. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

                                    • Exporting artboards in high quality PNG, JPG, SVG or any other image format.

                                      I've created this design for 6/7/8 (375x667) but when exporting the artboard to PNG it's not as high quality as on screen. I want to share the prototype designs of this artboard to my client but unfortunately, neither JPG nor PNG delivered the exact results that were intended or could be similar to the screen. When I export the image and test it on my iPhone 6, it seems to be blurry and with jaggy lines. Please refer to the attached image.

                                      Kindly look into this as this issue is very important to be fixed.

                                      • Use current file location as Save as default path

                                        When I select "Save As" it would make a lot of sense to use the file's current location as the default path. Currently XD seems to use the path that was used last time when using XD, regardless of the file.

                                        I use file number versioning alot, and I have "lost" my files multiple times just to find out them being accidentally saved into the folder of another project.

                                        • Hi can you please add a lock transform to objects. So that if I want to re-scale an entire group everything would scale uniformly.
