    Hopefully you’ve seen a lot more improvements since we launched our first Preview, especially for typographic features!

    I’m marking this as action-required, as we’d like for suggestions to be granular so that we can better aggregate them together. Please do upvote or file separate issues. Here are some suggestions:

    Rulers: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14160699
    Image repositioning within masks: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12930303
    Typographic improvements: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12927885

    Thanks for your feedback, and hope to hear from you soon!

  3. Have a serious look at Balsamiq

    Balsamiq has a huge user base, but I think XD has the potential to become the next go-to tool for Prototyping. However, you will need to take a long and serious look at it, and try to at least match 80% of its features, and of course also add the missing ones ;-)

    - Set up project wide snap to grid, in a similar way as PhotoShop.
    - Allow font size, colour and style changes within a paragraph.
    - Create a symbol library for reusable elements.
    - Create an asset library for imported assets.
    - Improve the colour picking tool. …

  4. Digital Ad Prototypes

    I've been looking for a tool like this to prototype digital ads. I love that I can both import from PS and AI and publish to html for sharing. To make digital ads, we'd need:

    + More animation options
    + Animated objects
    + Linked .psd and .ai files (so I can apply features in AI or PS and just use XD for prototyping

    Not essential but helpful:
    + For others to be able to comment on the html prototypes

    Thanks!!

    We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

    Some of the ideas mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

    I will close this request to keep our feature list tidy, but please feel free to file new individual UserVoice suggestions for any other ideas that we may have missed. Thanks for your feedback!

  5. Love it! Please keep going!

    I adore this effort! Thank you so much.
    Will definitely more features to be able to convert from other software to XDCC. A lot of them mentioned in the feedback from other users, but just to name a few: better text styling, symbols, importing color palettes and assets from illustrator and photoshop, rulers, responsive design (if you do this well, you'll rule over all digital design tools)

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! We’ll definitely keep on going. :)

    I’m marking this as action-required; we’d love for you to either file these as separate issues inside UserVoice or simply upvote them so that we can aggregate individual feature feedback. This gives us a better view of what our community as a whole would love to see next!

    Thanks,

  6. 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.

  8. Save Notifications

    Please integrate some kind of visible save notification. The beta version took several seconds to save my 50MB file, but the latest release appears to do this instantly, but I don't really think that the process has sped up that much. I find myself clicking several times on the save button just to be save that my work was actually saved.

  9. Dynamic colors

    Color swatch is Great!!... But we have not yet been able to delete the saved colors nor to edit them, leaving several unused colors in the palette.

    I know a lot of ideas are being sent but I believe that color management deserves attention since when we need to change a color we have to manually change all the elements. My idea is basically to be able to edit a color in the palette and see all the elements flipping to this new color in real time. The gain in productivity would be incredible!
    In short, my request is:

  10. Add critical features to Mac version then focus on Windows

    I see that you've been updating the Windows version to bring it to par with the Mac version. But can you first add some critical features to the Mac version before going full-steam on the Windows?

    This way we'll at least have one platform with a strong set of basic features:

    a) Non-scrollable elements to fix a header or footer.
    b) Show/hide elements so that I can emulate a drop-down menu or a popup window without creating countless Artboards and super complex links.

    These features are on our roadmap already, so you should upvote them separately to let us know you’re interested. We’re working on ensuring that we can deliver on both platforms going forward, and there won’t be that much longer to wait until you see new features on Mac.

  11. Interactivity

    Starting to say that all the new upgrade are making my life way more easier and more time efficient, what i would really love is to have ability like the one a dos In Design file gives you. For instance, being able to use a 360 degree picture that interact through finger touch. The option to place a keyboard out of the work frame but still be able to link it to a button in order to pop up once a user touch that button. Finally add videos.

  12. reset round corners

    Reset ROUND Corners

    once you draw round corners and set that text/picture box, then extend/stretch the box, the corners look absurdly distorted/disproportionate/oblong or no longer round, so XD should allow to reset corner points please! thanks.

    I sent out information about three months ago about the difference between path radius and rectangle radius. If you’re looking for an improvement, please do feel free to file another story on this if you’d like to see different behavior.

  13. Good import for easier migrating to the platform

    What is also crucial whenever a new platform comes is a transition to that platform. What if I have 100+ files in .psd or .ai or .sketch and I really like the new XD platform. That's almost 100% chance. For now, no platform have at least average solution for that. I have files in .ai but I want my team to migrate to .psd or .sketch... and it's time consuming mechanistic manual monkey job.

    It would be great and ease the transition if XD will have:
    – Import to XD from .psd, .ai, .sketch with all the artboards
    – Import…

    There are several different requests here, and I think a bunch of them are already tracked as their own individual suggestions:

    Please upvote any of those that you need, so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.

    You can already bring content into XD from all three of these tools by copy-pasting individual elements/layers. Some of the issues listed in the original request here seem to be related to poor fidelity or other problems when importing content this way. If you’re hitting issues like that, could you please file a new UserVoice bug report with as much detail as possible? Ideally, please share screenshots or even an actual AI/PSD/Sketch file that shows the problem.

    Thanks!

  15. Graphic tab/pen compatibility

    Currently while having PS or illustrator open while working with XD it can be a little annoying when jumping back into XD you have to down the graphic pen and switch to mouse pad. I use my graphics tab more and more and being able to use it in XD with such things like the pen tool would really help UX imo

  16. Toggle show/hide measurements

    Description: A toggle or a hotkey to show/hide the size of the objects and/or the distance between all objects in the project.

    Why: It will make easier to know how to position the objects, to be exact the same as in the XD file, when you develop the app. well it not so hard to calculate it by yourself. XD knows how to show it when you move the objects, the only thing left is just to create a button to show and keep it on visible, but with automatically calculated distance and size of all objects. As a web…

  17. Indicate when the project is being saved visually

    Sometime the autosave doesn't work so I started always saving, but then I don't know if I actually saved the project so I have to check if the Save in the File menu is deactivated, it would be nice to have a bar in the bottom that shows a message or a progressing bar to know that your project is being saved.

  19. advanced artboard focus features

    With just a keyboard and mouse the way to switch between artboard focus is very clumsy (alt+ scollwheel on mouse). I took me ages to figure this navigational feature out to begin with. And haven't found another way to manipulate the canvas (without touchpad or trackpad). Would be great to either have scroll bars on the canvas or short cuts to switch artboard focus:

    Suggestions:
    - Scroll bars on canvas
    - Cmd-Arrow - to switch focus to the nearest artboard in that direction

    The Cmd-scroll wheel just doesn't work and slows down workflow considerably.

    Kind regards,
