  1. Export single artboard as pdf

    Be able to pick a single (or multiple) artboard to export as pdf. Working with multiple artboards to show simple drop down executions and do not need them all exported together since then I have to go into Acrobat and delete pages.

  2. Add context menu for copying and pasting when editing text

    When I try to copy a section of text within a text box, if I right click on the selection there are no options but if I use the keyboard shortcut cmd + c it will copy it to the clipboard for me to paste on to another art board.

    Is this by design or is it a bug? If it is by design can right click options on selected text be added please?

  4. [Windows] Support French keyboard shortcuts

    I am using French keyboard and Arrange shortcuts do not work, only clicking in the menu does.

    European keyboards need the AltGr keys to access alternate characters like [ but that triggers measure mode instead (I think?).

    Besides these shortcuts are inconvenient to type on European keyboard layouts.

    For instance: Shift+Ctrl+AltGr+[ (Send to back) that's a lot of keys to type and they are far apart on the keyboard.

    You should now be able to use the AZERTY keyboard using the French localized version of Adobe XD, available in the May 2017 release. To check out the latest version, go to the Creative Cloud desktop app! If you don’t see the update, you can select the gear and click on “Check for App Updates.”

  5. Hand tool

    It would be nice to have a hand tool (in the try) and keyboard/mouse shortcuts.

    Right now when I hit the H key nothing happens, same with middle mouse button.

  6. OPT + DRAG to duplicate artboards

    Allow OPT + DRAG to duplicate artboards

    This would allow much faster iteration of page ideas. Duplicating from the layers palette is cumbersome and less intuitive because it forces way too much pointing and clicking.

    You can already option-drag to duplicate artboards. However, you’ll need to make sure that you have the artboard itself selected before you option-drag. To select the artboard, you can either click the artboard’s title or double click on the background. Once the artboard is selected, you can Option-Drag and have the entire artboard duplicate. :)

  7. Behance integration

    It can be very cool if there is way for integration iframe of XD project in Behance project for demonstrating in case.

  9. SVG Export Option: Convert Text to Curves

    XD is a great software to design digital assets with vector graphics and text. It would be perfect if text could be converted into curves when assets are saved as svg files for web.

    Hi Frank, we support this, go to Path → Convert to Path.
    Perhaps we need to make it more obvious.

  10. A place on this forum where users could chat/exchange thoughts like a forum?

    Just a thought that sometimes it'd be nice to have conversations with other users online about XD as I don't know anyone else using it.

  11. Hotkey for starting/stopping prototype recordings

    Having a hotkey to control prototype recordings would clean up cursor activity during the recording. By necessity, the cursor currently has to navigate to and from the top right corner when the video starts and ends, something that detracts from the presentation. A hotkey would remove the need for those extra movements.

  13. Ability to name export file (not overwrite file)

    Unless I missed something, there is no way to name the new export, and it will use the .xd filename and add the relevant extension (PDF, etc...)

    Could we give it a different name so we don't have to overwrite, or create a subfolder?

    This is useful when exporting a subset of artboards from the same project.

  14. shift-and-drag objects 45 degrees

    I cannot seem to shift-and-drag objects 45 degrees and that seems like a fairly normal adobe feature.

  15. Go Back One Screen in Prototype Preview

    As a user, I want to be able to go back one screen if I am viewing my prototype in preview mode so that I don't get stuck on a screen that I haven't prototyped yet.

    Sometimes, I just want to test that all of the buttons on a screen take the user to the screens they are supposed to, but I may want to continuously go back to the previous screen because I may want to test a new path.

    Perhaps a keyboard command would be great. You could also make it go back if you click 3 times…

    We’ve added new features recently to our shared prototype viewer that I think you’ll like. Now, when you view your shared prototype, you should be able to use the navigation buttons (as well as the left/right arrow keys) to be able to shuffle through your artboards in order, even if you have interactions defined. Check it out and let us know what you think!

  16. Customize rectangle corners separately

    You can currently round corners of squares by clicking and dragging to your desired radius. I wish I could:
    1. only round certain corners (ie, only 2 not all 4)
    2. enter the exact radius I want (used to be able to do that easily in the right panel, but that option has disappeared)- would be beneficial for handing off files to developers

  17. Share Online vs. Create New Link

    Version of Adobe XD: 0.5.0.4

    I created a Project and shared online -> everything works fine.

    But if i want to creat another Version of this Project, i am not able to create a new, differnt "online-Link"???

    Made following Steps:


    1. Open current Project

    2. Save as another Project / different Filename / same content

    3. Now there is no new "create Link Button" just a "Update-Link" Button

    4. Both Files are leading to the same "Online-Link"

    Working on one Projekt and save it will always overwirte the other existing Presentation.

    The only way is to Copy Paste all Grafix into a complete New…

  18. copy & paste

    Copy & paste the same artboard style (with exactly the same items on it) to another artboard. Also copy & paste the same item with the same position to another artboard (cmd + alt + shift + v) as in InDesign.

    If you select an artboard, copy and paste it, another artboard will be created with all the same contents.

    If you copy an item from one artboard and copy it to another, the location of the item should match where it was copied from.

    This is in our current update of XD as of this writing.

  19. none

    xd is amazing!!!!! thank u.

  20. Object menu lists entries which are in fact unavailable

    If I click on the Object menue, I see lots of active entries even if currently no shape in an artboard is selected. And if a shape or an image is selected, "Object > Mask with Shape" is active, even if I had selected only the image or the shape (but the command only works with both selected).

    Desired behaviour: Menue entries should only be active if applicable, otherwise grayed out.
