  1. 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.

  2. 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,

    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!

  6. 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’d like for suggestions to be as granular as possible so as to better aggregate. Please upvote and add your thoughts to the following stories:

    Rulers: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14160699

    I didn’t see Font Awesome in the database, so you can add it.

    I wish XD was more like UXPin

    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!

  9. Offline Access to XD

    Here's my story:

    I traveled to my parent's house outside of the City I live in, and my parents' have got a very poor internet connection there, so, I opened XD to continue designing one of my projects and XD keep asking me to log in!

    There is no way it will allow me to work unless I log in!

    Without internet access to login, I'm not able to work, which is completely BS!

    Can you, please, make XD accessible offline and make me login later on?

    P.S. request:
    Please, make this input field resizeable, so I could read everything…

  10. The right-click selects the upper element instead of previously selected elements underneath

    How to reproduce the bug :
    - Select a group of elements
    - Unselect the upper element (top element in front of others elements)
    - Right-click on the group
    >> the selection is lost and the top element is eventually selected.

  11. Speech Playback available for prototypes

    When sharing prototypes people are not able to preview speech playback and voice interactivity unless they have an XD account.

    I have been told that this was designed like this for security reasons. Not sure what the security reason is?!

    Being able to share voice is a huge reason I started using XD for prototyping.

    Thanks for your question! Here’s the info from Mark Webster: Yep, we require a login for security reasons. As you noted, you don’t need to be a customer, you can use a free account, but we need to have some sort of authorized user making a request of the voice service.

  12. Layers for overlays

    If you used Layers to position the overlays, the positioning of elements would be MUCH easier and utilize the same resolution. Currently, the overlays have a difficult time with font resolution. Almost like it is using a low-res jpg/png/gif.

    When using the Layer method, the connection would display the layer is the proper position.

  13. Column / Layout Grids available in the Design Specs

    Developers often need to know the amount of columns that an element takes in the layout. It would be perfect if instead of making a preview artboard with columns as shapes we could use a toggle that will allow developers to see what we used when we designed a specific layout.

    Thanks!

  14. Unlink mask and images.

    I need to change the mask size and the image size separately.
    Like every other Adobe App. Even have separate numeric control would be great. This can be useful even for animation.

  16. Allow text changes in local components

    When using master design components and reusing them in other files, i like the idea of making components local so i don't accidentally push a copy change for one instance to all instances of that component.

    However, i miss sketch's functionality where you can easily click a component and change the text in only instance. Makes prototyping go a lot faster.

    See the attached gif for how i have to rename them today. Takes several clicks to rename. Even if i go into the layers, if i rename the text it just renames the title of the text not the…

  17. Pixel to pixel distance measurement tool

    A tool to click at any point in the artboard and measure the distance from that point to another point anywhere else in the same artboard.

  18. Select all colours used in the document

    I would love the ability to be able to select all colours used / unused in the document (just like Illustrator) from the assets panel. Also would be awesome to do the same with character styles & symbols.

  20. Embed an XD prototype within another prototype

    It would be great to insert an extra prototype into an Xd file, similar to an iframe in html. Just like the overlay, but in a persistent manner. Changes could be applied when the external file is re-saved.
