  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. 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,

    We already have a number of these suggestions in the backlog already, such as:

    Please do swing by these three (and file other ideas) to help with reducing the number of artboards you need to create your designs.

    Thanks!

  7. Initial feedback

    Initial feedback:
    • If I can use Command + R to access Rulers in Ai and Ps, I should expect the same in Xd.
    • Also, guides are extremely helpful for setting correct heights (think Android).
    • Echoing what others have said about Layers. Especially when having to demonstrate modal dialogs or touch gestures.
    • Mobile screens share common elements so allow the user to create Symbols.
    • Notes: how can these be added to a design when sharing files?
    • Support Asian typography; many of us share files across continents and internal teams will want to add comments to…

    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:

    About Asian typography support: could you give us more detail on what you mean? You should be able to enter text using Asian characters in XD the same way as you would type in other Mac apps. If you can, please file a new UserVoice request specifically on this topic, with screenshots and as much other detail as possible. Thanks for your feedback!

  8. Native OS X UI when possible

    I've noticed that Adobe is trying to use more custom UI elements in it's products which I actually find make them harder - not easier - to use. Products like Sketch have found a real following by using the UI elements and paradigms provided by the operating system. I think XD should use more of the OS UI so that it would feel like other apps that I use and be able to have updated UI styles as the OS is updated over time.

    The requests that have been in the comments thread are all related to existing stories in UserVoice. I’m marking this one as Action Required in order to close it out.

    As noted in other comments in this thread, here are the existing stories you can upvote:

    Thanks!

  9. Lists and Tables

    What I am missing while designing for the web with PS or AI is, the possibility to create lists (ordered or unordered) or tables or other stuff, that is possible with html/css.

    I think most of the items listed here are covered by other feature requests already. Please upvote these if they fit:

    In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. Thanks!

  11. Separate component states from variants

    Instead of managing all the different variations of a component using states, allow switching of variants with their own set of states. Technically you could add new components for each variant but being able to select a variant from a dropdown would be a neat way to organise groups of components and switch between their variants and associated states. An example would be having a solid button and an outline button as part of the same component, and these would have their own set of states when you switch between variants. This would be far neater than having states for…

  13. Co-Edit Crashes

    The co-edit continue to crash. I tried the co-edit with people in foreign countries and people in the same office with me under the same network, no matter what, Adobe keeps crashing on us.

    XD crashed so much, and you can't disable co-edit once you enable it, my co-work had to copy and paste the stuff to a new file and work from a new file.

  15. On hover tooltip

    On Hover to provide tooltip or pop-over,
    As of now you guys have provided the On hover component/button styling. But we need to add tooltips at times or a mini popover on hover which will be helpful.

  18. Fix position when Scrolling- Shifted to Prototype mode

    In your XD tutorial, the part 7, The "Fix position when scrolling" is not anymore in the Design mode. But it is shifted to the prototype mode. Please change this in the tutorial as it is very confusing who is learning as he/she can't find that option in the Design mode.

  19. image rotation in mask

    There should be a way to rotate a photo inside a mask. Right now the whole mask rotates and not just the image. See example.

  20. 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…
