  1. Repeat grid feature counterintuitive.

    Most of the time I find myself trying to replace only one picture but all pictures on the grid get replaced. I know it's a use case but please give be a modifier while replacing the picture because I need to build my own order one by one and this is not possible. In order to do this I need to ungroup the grid and then all the magic is gone.

    And it's completely inconsistent: I can replace a single text on a box by typing but can't do it with another element of the same group (picture)

    • Mac/Windows Font Structure Issue

      Some fonts have issues between Mac and Windows environments most notably at the moment the Intro typeface. It works fine in all other Adobe software but in XD if a person sets up a file on a Mac and then a Windows user tries to open the file the fonts are all missing despite the exact same font files being installed on both computers. Mac and Windows in XD seem to group font families differently so Intro Black Caps on Mac is Font-Family: Intro, Font-weight: black caps. But on Windows it's Font-Family Intro Caps, Font-weight: Black. Causing the files to…

      • Minimize text box and add "read more"

        I'm looking for a easy way to create a expandable text box with the click of a button (e.g read more)

        This is often seen in app stores and in news articles that that are behind a pay wall.
        With the text box minimized you should be able the see the content below (screenshots etc) but when you expand the content should be moved further down. Maybe this is already possible but I can't find the feature either in the software or in a tutorial. Of course I can build this my own with animations, but shouldn't there be a…

          Thanks for your feedback. Right now, the way to do this is using auto-animate, which will enable you to move other objects out of the way. I’m guessing you’re looking for a tool that will enable you to automatically reflow the rest of your page when you expand a section, is that right?

        • Allow downloading images from web viewer

          Allow easy downloading of images from the web view. It looks like the app deliberately obfuscates this ability (right click -> download image is not possible in browser).
          Seeing as there is no built in version control or reference ID for version of images, downloading images is necessary to take snapshots of progress.

            • Guest Log-In (no log-in) for reviewers only

              Adobe keeps saying this issue is resolved. It's not. Please allow an Adobe XD creator to share an XD preview without the reviewer (client) having to have an Adobe account or log in. Should be as simple as click the link for a preview. And they should be private. (password optional). Same as Google Drive sharing "Anyone with link can view".

                Thanks for contacting us! When you click on Share > “Share for Review,” you should be able to see a screen that publishes a public view that does not require a login to view. (You should see four checkmarks: Allow Comments, Open in Full Screen, Show Hotspot, Hints, and Require Password.) Your clients can sign in as a guest to comment – no password required, just a CAPTCHA.

                If you create a private link, your users will need an Adobe ID to sign in.

                That being said, there’s also a chance that if you’re in a managed enterprise, your admin could have turned this option off and required you to use invitations instead of creating public links. Is there a possibility that might have happened?

              • Transfer ownership of published "design specs with comments"

                We have an agency that is using Adobe XD just for our project. They will not renew their Adobe CC license after this project. The ongoing project has its design specs published and contain rich amount of comments and conversations.

                We would require this information to be transferred to us after the agency has completed the project and exited. This is important from a retrospective and legal standpoint.

                However Adobe XD does not have this feature yet. We also need a way for internal designers who are leaving the company to transfer the published specs and prototypes to someone else…

                • Simply make XD full Adobe CC ecosystem friendly...

                  Well... after trying many times XD and giving up frustrated after every try, I’ve reached some thoughts about why its still unusable for my “particular” user experience:

                  1. I’ve been doing user interface mock-ups with Illustrator for at least a decade, so my skills are focused on be productive with it and import image assets from Photoshop when needed. Then, I haven’t time to face a learn curve on a new design tool. I want to keep using Illustrator.

                  2. Being an Adobe CC long time user, I’ve grown with a deep understanding of Adobe CC ecosystem. Each program cooperates…

                    Thanks for your feedback.

                    1) Our intent is for you to be able to still use Illustrator. We can now open Illustrator files, so you can design in Illustrator, bring your designs over to XD, and then add in motion using our Prototype mode.

                    2) You can use Creative Cloud Libraries to update your linked assets across documents. If auto update images is something you’re interested in, there is a feature request in this database you can upvote. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109

                    3) It sounds like you’re interested in dark mode, there’s a feature request for that as well. Over time, you’ll see both Illustrator and XD moving to a more universal design system. Hopefully that will help! https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12940362

                    Please let us know if you have specific requests beyond those two above.

                  • Round to Whole Pixel

                    Not sure if I can explain this fully, but here goes. Number adjustments that are not in whole digit pixels, 205.4. When I click down or up should go to 205 or 206 respectively. Not 204.4 206.4. Maybe not necessarily a by default option, but something we can turn on. Occasionally when resizing a group of object, pixel perfect isn't well perfect. In this instance, it would be nice to fix with a quick up or down.

                      Thanks for your feedback! We optimized for visual fidelity over pixel snapping when it comes to things like rotation and resizing groups. Doing these two things will generally knock things off pixel. For these individual elements, you can bring them back on pixel by selecting the object and then using Object > Align to Pixel.

                      Is this the functionality you’re looking for?

                    • Shape builder

                      It would be great if XD had a shape builder like Illustrator to more easily build more complex shapes. This would allow me to stay within just one application instead of having to use multiple applications. The standard boolean operators just don't cut it.

                                    Thanks for your feedback! If I understand this request correctly, you’re actually asking TWO things = 1. to download the original design file from the shared prototype, and 2. to be able to enable customers to download a copy of the shared prototype to their machines. Is that correct?

                                  • File: Open File dialog - Recent files with long filenames get truncated

                                    Problem: When selecting File: Open, the dialog box shows my recent documents with trucated filenames making it difficult to see the differences between two versions of the same document.

                                    Suggested feature: It would be helpful if the ”Recent” view of the ”Open” dialog box could display the full filenames.

                                    Background: I work with a lot of different iterations of the same document so the image preview might be the same or very similar, with long filenames as the only differentiator.

                                    Thanks for a great product!

                                      • Nudging with option

                                        Make it possible to move an object with the arrow keys when option/alt is pressed. Right now you have to release the key in order to move it but then you don't always see the pixel distances.

                                        • How about Creating various Social Media Static & Animated content?

                                          It will be awesome if you can consider XD for creating Artwork for Instagram Stories, Posts, FB, etc

                                          No tool is solving this beautifully, request you to consider this option.

                                            This might be a dumb question, but have you tried using Adobe Spark Post for this? I’d love to hear why you’re interested in using XD for this over something that was created specifically for this purpose.
