    • Access Shared for Review documents with XD mobile apps

      Currently if you share a document using the Share for Review function the receiver can only see this document on a web browser. This has limitations, both on viewing experience (browser chrome gets in the way) and performance.

      It would be great if the prototype could be seen directly inside the mobile XD apps instead, under the Shared with You section.

        Message from Arun:

        While I see your point about browser chrome still present when viewing a prototype on mobile web browser, I am not sure I understood the issue with performance.

        Can you elaborate more on why you felt the performance of viewing prototypes on mobile web is slower? Any specific examples that you can share will help us dig into this further and improve the experience.

        On the viewing experience as well, we have recently made some improvements where-in maximum real estate is now used to show the prototype in its glory. Browser chrome on most browsers go away after some time allowing you to see the full height prototype. Please give this a try and let us know your feedback. I am eager to hear more from you.

              While I understand the need for precision, creating grids that snap off-pixel actually makes designing for screens less accurate, as it often forces elements to anti-alias, leading to less crisp artwork when you output. Are you absolutely sure you need columns that are off-pixel? If so, can you explain why?

            • Resize layer in mask

              Masks are completely broken and pretty useless in XD currently. You can't reorder layers, use clipping masks, or even resize a layer inside a mask. Once you create a mask group, it's basically a locked in and un-editable layer causing lots of frustration and confusion.

                • link font to color asset

                  Link the font color to a specific color in the asset library so if you change that color it will affect the character style throughout

                        • Confirm dialog (Or Undo) when deleting Cloud document

                          Since moving my document to the new Cloud format, my access to the file is limited to within Adobe XD browser. If I accidentally delete the file, it would be gone forever with no way to manually back it up.

                          Currently, if I hit the delete button, the file is immediately deleted. Can we have a confirmation dialog or an Undo button to prevent misclicks?

                          I'm sure with future improvements to the XD cloud ecosystem, there would be better, more intuitive ways to preserve your documents, but I think this would save a lot of hours and headache in the…

                              Would be nice, if we can change the font for the whole document. Something like Sketch Typeface.

                                  Thanks for your feedback! I’m confused as to what you mean by “sidebar.” Our properties inspector is on the right, and the assets panel and symbols panel are on the left. Which one are you referring to?

                                • Fonts change from user to user

                                  This has happened to me a few times, when a file is shared between two designers, occasionally the font will load differently, even though we have the exact same font. Typically what happens is the line height of the font shows up differently. So if I open the file - everything fits fine in a text box, if she opens the same file with the same font, the 2nd line may is missing.

                                  There was a rare case where if I open the file the line heights are 20 pxs off in the line height field.

                                    Thanks for the feedback! Are you seeing this difference across platforms? Are you installing from the same font provider (e.g. Typekit)? Information about the default height of a font is stored in the font itself, so I’m wondering if it’s actually an issue with that.

                                  • Unique id number per screen

                                    Problem: I cannot tell clients or partners to check screen X because everytime I update my XD files with new screens that are not at the end the pages on the bottom (x of total) change. So a screen on page 45 may become 46.

                                    Solution: Either add a new (fixed for ever) page number at the end or provide sperate (viewable IDs, probably together with the artboard's title).

                                      We already support deep linking, where you can refer to specific artboards via the URL. When you navigate to artboard 45 in your case, just copy and paste the URL from your bar and send that, and your clients/partners will get a link to just that artboard.

                                      Does that work for you?

                                    • As a user i want to be able to animate an artboard to the previous artboard.

                                      I can't animate an artboard to the previous artboard and the function is limited to selecting between just one of them.

                                      • Select multiple Artboards, click batch export once

                                        Selecting multiple Artboards and then clicking batch export button of one item, currently only selects that item for the export, so I have to click through every single one of them I want to be exported. Please add a feature where clicking that button applies for all selected Artboards.

                                          Hi! I would love if you could create a parent or a smart object inside XD so that you not need to apply small changes to all of your artboards.
