  1. Extensive GPU Support

    To speed things up big-time!

    Most of the users will have a decent graphics card anyway to support a big screen resolution (which is comfortable when designing)

    I’m marking this as not a feature request, as we haven’t yet released Windows yet. That being said, we’re definitely making sure that our Windows app is going to be as performant as it can be, which means using every trick in the book (including leveraging the GPU) to make sure it’s as zippy as possible. Stay tuned!

  2. 01: Lock Ratio when scale; 02: Multi tabs for working space; 03: Short cut for Design/prototype mode

    01: When I wanna scale an image or icon with a certain number I need a lock ratio check box to link the width and height.
    02: I prefer to working with multi tabs for the documents like Photoshop/Ai....
    03: I prefer a quick change mode between Design/Prototype

  3. Not Useful

    This tool is impractical at best and at the moment completely useless in a production environment. There is no right-click menu (efficiency/productivity). If the design is approved, there is no way for the developer to pull out specific assets (and not way to pull the layout into another ADOBE program in order to package assets for dev. There is no interoperability between adobe products. If the design gets approved, anything completed in this app must be completely abandoned and redesigned from scratch in another program (sketch, illustrator, Photoshop). WE don't have time to do the work twice. No thought of…

    I’m sorry you weren’t happy with our first beta, but rest assured, we’re addressing many of these issues on a monthly basis. Our intent on releasing early was not to bring a fully-fledged product into market, but to provide people who are interested in giving feedback an opportunity to see an early version of the product.

    I do hope you’ll come back and reevaluate once we reach 1.0.

  4. The feature I'd like most is a commitment that adobe is going to stick with this app long term

    Sorry bit of a dig, but many of us have been burned by adobe dropping apps that we have invested a lot of time and effort in.

    How committed are you to not lose interest in this app?

    I’m marking this as not a feature request, but I’ll say that Adobe’s investment in this initiative is high. Speaking for myself: ultimately, the bottom line still matters to Adobe as a business. Many of us on the team have worked on products that have been discontinued after we got some, but not a lot, of highly enthusiastic users. While these users were disappointed that we discontinued the products, it came down to this: the user base wasn’t big enough to support the amount of investment we were making in the product.

    So this is how you can help: tell everyone about XD. Use XD, use it often, use it regularly. Tell all your friends to do the same. Tell all your friends to tell all THEIR friends, influence their workplaces, show interest in and attend courses. The bigger the regular customer base, the more interested in investment the company…

  6. Giver greater contrast to text edit background color

    It's very hard to tell when text is in edit mode on the canvas.. there isn't enough contrast like there is when placed on a white background like an artboard

  7. Provide German language tutorials

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials und Hilfe wäre eine Sache!

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials und Hilfe wäre eine Sache!
    Das ist fast wichtiger wie die Oberfläche von XD.

    Mit meinem Schulenglisch komme ich soweit ganz gut rum aber um eine Software mit deutscher Oberfläche" und englischer Hilfe u. Tutorials zu verstehen" die auch noch relativ NEU ist reicht es bei mir nicht aus.

    Die englische Fachterminologie für eine Software in deutscher Sprache macht mich fertig:-(

    Und lasst diese englischsprachen Newsletter an deutsche User. Bei euren Milliardengewinnen schafft ihr es sicher auch noch ein paar mehr Übersetzer zu bezahlen.

    Ihr müsst euch nach den Kunden richten…

    Danke für Dein Feedback und den guten Vorschlag hinsichtlich deutschsprachiger Newsletter zu Spezialthemen wie benannt. Letzteren habe ich an das entsprechende Marketingteam in Deutschland weitergegeben – unsere UserVoice Instanz wird ja primär vom XD Produktteam genutzt.

    XD Tutorials und die vollständige XD Hilfe ist allerdings bereits seit Jahren verfügbar!

    Du gelangst direkt aus XD heraus zu den deutschen Hilfeseiten (vorausgesetzt Du nutzt XD auf Deutsch, was ich hier annehme), schau mal im Menü “Hilfe” unter “Training & Support” nach. Das leitet Dich auf https://helpx.adobe.com/de/support/xd.html, und das ist der vollständige englische Inhalt, auf deutsch.

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials findest Du unter https://helpx.adobe.com/de/xd/tutorials.html. Nicht alle Videos sind immer synchronisert, aber sollte das nicht der Fall sein gibt es mindestens deutsche Untertitel.

    Hoffe das hilft! Lass uns wissen wenn es noch etwas hinzuzufügen gibt.

  8. link font to color asset

    Link the font color to a specific color in the asset library so if you change that color it will affect the character style throughout

  9. Recent update

    Adobe has decided to update the software without warning to end-user like myself. Suddenly, all files aren't being able to view by clients on the app any longer. It was a nightmare while I am on vacation and I had to deal with the problem while internet connect is not working as fast as normal. Please in the future if you guys decided to update anything at least make the experience seamless not as troublesome as this time around. Who on earth has the time to sit there to sync all files again and dealing with multiple emails from clients…

    Thanks for your feedback. Andrew shared a comment with you a couple of days ago: “Apologies for the frustration that the changed caused for you here – we will continue to look for ways to improve communication when there are changes to existing workflows in the product.”

  10. Scrollbar displays in Preview recording

    I noticed something in the new XD update. when I record a design that entails a scrollable screen, the scrolling bar on the side still shows up in the screen capture

  11. Keep RAW support for windows 8

    I understand you have stopped updates for Windows 8 computers. While I absolutely hate this, the worst part is I can't open up RAW files from my new EOS R since you have tied RAW support to new updates!!!

    This has essentially rendered Lightroom/photoshop useless and I'm paying $50 a month for software with 0 support.

    I still think that you should either get Lightroom 8 working or offer an upgrade to win 10 (costs $150/computer) but at minimum, keep RAW support going so your creators can keep working!!!

    I now have to spend $150/computer to update them, do hours…

  12. Can you make XD daily challenges incorporate some coding?

    I am participating in trial 2-week with www.Thinkful.com community which has a great background in coding and provides structured feedback from assignment mentors. Unfortunately, you will have to pay to complete the bootcamp but I wish XD daily has a little bit of this focus. They also have online chats throughout the day on how to think like a data scientist.

  13. Add menu for cycle through windows

    I think we should have a cycle through windows option under Window menu in the top. When I open multiple Adobe XD files, I can't cycle through the windows with any keyboard shortcut. I have to hold the mouse left key on the Adobe XD icon from the dock that wastes time for me every time.

  14. So let me get this straight admins of this site!

    I post a new request for a critical issue to be fixed specifying exactly what we need, and guess what :) It gets merged with a request that has been "UNDER REVEW" for more than 2 years! Just a polite way of saying we don't wanna bother ourselves with this :)

    Thanks for reaching out again. Please note that what we’re trying to do is aggregate feedback to see how many people are interested in a feature. In fact, adding to a feature that is “under consideration” is MUCH better than sitting as a request with only one vote. We’ve been working on many of our top 10 issues over these past two years, and the features under consideration are closer to the feature hopper than others. Hope that helps!

  15. Asset Search

    Asset search would be extreamly useful. Especially when using an icon library for example.

  16. How to scale an SVG relative to its canvas size with the command line

    Recently, i am facing a crazy problem. I'm trying to create a pipeline for rendering my vector graphics. Basically, I am trying to upscale the vector by 16 times, rasterize it, then downscale to supersample it back down to native resolution, which is based on the SVG's canvas.

    I'm trying to do this with ImageMagick but from what I have read it isn't possible because you have to explicitly tell ImageMagick the canvas size by pixels, and not by a percentage/multiplying.

    I use Adobe Illustrator 22.1 64-bit to create my SVG's, and ImageMagick 7.0.7-25 Q16 x64.

    Thanks & Regards

    Thanks for your inquiry! We shifted to having a link so that you can get the latest UI kits at any time. Often, the OS developers (like Apple, Google, and Microsoft) update the OS and its paradigms, and the UI kits within the product lag by a couple of months. By giving the OS manufacturers control over the UI kits, you can get the latest design elements faster.

  20. There is no top option bar on the screen!

    I use a windows laptop and when I open up the application there is no bar at the top that says things like "file, edit, object, view, window, help"!!!This is a hug problem that needs fixing immediately

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Our design for Windows 10 follows UWP design guidelines, which removes the top menu bar. All of the file commands that you’re used to are underneath the burger menu in the upper left-hand corner. All of the object commands, however, are in the context menu, which you can find by right clicking on an object or group.

    Hope that helps!

    Elaine
