  1. 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.

      • Allow guest commenters to be notified when I reply to their comment.

        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…

            Thank you so much for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you submit one suggestion per ticket, as it helps us to be able to merge things in with other similar suggestions. Thankfully, most of your suggestions are already in the database. For instance:

                Some feature that I think need to add in XD ASAP
                1. Border Gradient
                2. Dash line
                3. Rounded corner (in stock)
                4. Masking - ( Mask with shape is really painful so it should be something like sketch or photoshop)
                5. Corner radius (shape edit mode) rather than access by the property.

                          • Master of text: padding styles, margin styles, paragraph styles, character styles.

                            Padding style: can be applied to a shape. Then using text tool click the shape and type. The padding is maintained on resizing the object (unless the value is changed in the padding style).

                            Margin style: works like the space before, left, right or after in InDesign. Can be applied to any object or text block.

                            Paragraph styles and Character styles (useful for links) work in the same way as Indesign (perhaps using web terminology, % values, rems).

                              • Change coordinate system to use points instead of virtual pixels

                                I'd like to be able to switch the design mode to use points for coordinates and sizes.
                                Translating points works really easily in other apps so I know exactly how to layout on a matching device size in Xcode.
                                The virtual pixel on XD does not match up to points 1:1 with Xcode.

                                • Show numbers of art boards as they would appear within the prototype in the XD design workspace

                                  When working on designs within the XD program and a client references a page within the prototype by number, you have no way of knowing, instantly, which page within the XD design space they're talking about as the art boards don't have the numbers showing. Please can numbers be present in the title. If will make it easier to remember what pages to link to when in prototype mode along with the aforementioned reference issue between prototype and XD Design space.

                                  • Updates have been in the pipeline too long, specifically grids and interactions

                                    We have been requesting these two basic things from the beginning, yet still we wait.

                                    1) Layout grids, and ability to align them with css frameworks
                                    2) Interactions, anything more than a slideshow would be great!

                                      Both of these are on our radar and are actively being worked on. I’m guessing you already upvoted both of them, so you’ll know that we’ve marked Layout Grids as started. Improved interactivity is also something I’m personally working on, so there’s definitely movement in the area as well! That’s a little more complex, but we’re making progress!

                                    • Better Font Selector

                                      When using/selecting a font, use the selector dialog similar to that of Photoshop and Illustrator, just for convenience.

                                      • Have all interactive gestures beside click

                                        Allow all of the javascript events besides click. One should be able to be mouseover, mouseout, double click, right click, hover, swipe left/right, swipe up/down, pinch/zoom and touch events to work on desktop and mobile (tablet, smartphone) along with watch and smart tv.

                                        • Similar Function used in both Mac and Windows

                                          I would be prefer to have a similar usability on both Mac and Windows. Right now, 1/3 of the functionality in Mac is not available in Windows, which is ridiculous when I am working at home and at office.

                                          Please update to according what Mac has on Windows as well. Thank you.
