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

    • sharing prototypes and design specs to clients without a creative cloud account

      currently users can only view prototype and specs only if they have a cc sign on. I would have to say a majority of our clients do not have CC.

            Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file one ticket per request, and you have four great ones here. All of them are already in the database and can be upvoted:

          • Handle large prototypes

            I don't really have an idea for this, by that I mean a solution. All I have is my current problem: I have a very large prototype with A LOT of artboards, because this feature is quite big. Problem is, managing all the links between all the artboards and different elements is becoming challenging, and it's becoming harder and harder for me to manage what should be linked to what and how.

            Been trying to Google this a bit, but haven't found much to be honest.

            • Support for "Fill" in transparent images (Windows)

              Downloading transparent icons and then importing them to Photoshop just to change the color of it is just annoying.Especially when you have 4 gigs of ram.

              Adobe pls.

                As we requested information three months ago and never received a response, I’m marking this request as inactive. If you’re still interested in seeing this in Adobe XD, please do file a new request.

                  Thanks for filing this! As I mentioned in my last note, you should be able to view all shortcuts either in a context menu or while hovering over features that have shortcuts. If you’re still having problems, please do let us know!

                      Thanks for taking the time to file a feature request! Unfortunately, we asked for more information about six months ago and haven’t heard back. If you’re interested in specific types of UI kits, please do file them separately by platform or app type. Thanks!

                    • General Feedback

                      • NEED Rulers and Guides.
                      • Also support for font awesome would help greatly. Assuming that would be a library to load.
                      • ZOOM functionality extremely limiting. add ability to zoom using Shift+Command drag VERY annoying to zoom to some random spot on the workspace.

                          We’re really looking for individual features you think would make XD a better product. Are there specific features you like from UXPin that you think you’re missing? Please let us know which ones you think are the most useful!

                                • Is XD going to keep getting keyboard shortcuts to speed up workflow?

                                  Is XD going to keep getting keyboard shortcuts to increase efficiency when designing? I have photoshop shortcuts memorized so I'm much faster in Photoshop than I am in XD because most things have to be done with the mouse right now. It would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut to open the window to change colors of objects and text, keyboard shortcuts like photoshop has to change leading and kerning for text, etc. Anything that can be done to minimize having to go to the right sidebar every time for changes. I didn't see any way to scrub through…

                                    Thanks for your suggestion! We’re looking at keyboard shortcuts where they make sense. You can already use the same leading and kerning shortcuts from Photoshop. If you have specific keyboard shortcuts you’d like to see, please do file them as separate tickets so that we can better combine them with similar suggestions!

                                  • Change color of clearly defined imported vector shapes.

                                    With some practice one can create navigation icons in XD, but it takes practice and a good amount of time if you want anything slightly better than a wire-frame level. I would love to see the ability to change the color of imported vector shapes. In other words, if import some vector mobile icons (simple shapes), I'd love the ability to change their color all at once.

                                      If my client leaves a comment on my prototype, I would like them to receive an email when I reply. Right now, they have to always go back to the link and go through each page to see if I've left a message, or I need to email them to let them know I've responded. It would be much easier if they got the same type of email I do as owner, where I'm notified when a comment is left on my prototype.

                                      • Things In Which XD Is lacking.

                                        I am using Adobe XD from Last two weeks and I found that some basic features are missing in this tool even these features are available in Photoshop and AI(previous design tools of Adobe). So, I would like to mention some of them.

                                        1. No way to export CSS attributes from Design specs, It is too painful for a developer to develop UI without it, Please add this feature ASAP.

                                        2. Can't save whole UI Screens as PDF.

                                        3. Blending Options are missing.

                                        4. Can't add border radius on editable paths.

                                        5. Basic shapes are missing(hexagons/octagons or stars only rectangle…
