  1. 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

    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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!

                • Asset Search

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

                  • 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

                        You can use “Export” for an artboard – select the artboard by clicking on the title, Cmd+E (Mac) or Ctrl+E (Win), then select what option you want to export to – JPG, PNG, or PDF.

                        Hope that helps!

                            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.

                              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!

                            • Make your UX designers use XD and ONLY XD for everything they do.

                              Your tool is lacking in such basic and critical functionality that it is nearly unusable for a professional to use in a real work environment, with deadlines, quality of deliverables, asset hand off, etc that these basic enhancements would easily be addressed if you had the right group prioritizing the backlog.

                              That means UX DESIGNERS, not product owners, should own this backlog.

                                Thanks for your feedback. Our product designers use XD every day, and we design XD using XD. We also work very closely with a huge number of designers who all tell us what to do. (And yes, we have designers as product owners.)

                                • Email PDF of receipt of my Adobe subscription

                                  As a corporate user of the Adobe Creative Cloud, I expense the monthly charge to my company. When dealing with the Adobe system, the user has to log in to get a PDF receipt of the monthly charges. The system should be configured to allow the user to select one of two options: 1) email a receipt to the email address on file 2) email a notification that the receipt is available (with a link to the pdf after login).

                                    Thanks for reaching out to us! Unfortunately, as a product team, we don’t control this part of the subscription process. I have, however, submitted your request through the employee requests portal on your behalf so that the team in charge of that part of the product will see it.

                                    I’m closing this request as “not a feature request,” as it’s not an XD-specific feature request.

                                    Would be nice if I could edit my post in this forum instead of having to delete it and post it all over again, for instance if I forgot to attach an image or similar.

                                      This is not a feature request, as it is a request about UserVoice and not about XD. That being said, you can edit your posts if you are logged into the UserVoice system, with your own username and password.

                                      Hope that helps!

                                      Not sure where to post this idea, because it's more about this feedback website than about Xd itself. I wish we could vote on people's comments, not just on the idea itself. Sometimes the best ideas are buried within the comments, and I fear that they're getting lost.

                                        Thanks for your suggestion! You should definitely suggest this to the UserVoice team at www.uservoice.com. I’ll also pass this along to UserVoice the next time I talk to them. In the meantime, I’m marking this is not a feature request with us because it’s not specifically about XD. Thanks!

                                      • To view zoomed out InDesign documents as a grid?

                                        It would be really beneficial when I zoom out of (for example) a 40pp Indesign document to view all the pages grouped (in order) horizontally and vertically in a grid pattern as oppose to one long column.

                                        Currently the view on screen is one long column. It still involves a lot of scrolling up and down and would be better to work/see the pages in a grid (almost similar to ai artboards).

                                        Is Indesign capable of such a view? I think this could be a real asset to have.

                                        • Multi select Text elements to mutate their properties

                                          I want to be able to hold the Cmd/Shift key and multi select text elements to change either their font size or weight etc. Right now, I'm having to set them individually as selecting second while hold the cmd/shift deselects the first.
