  1. Adjust line spacing between individual lines in area text

    Currently if I want to change the leading between sentences in a text box, the change effects the entire text box. I would like to have the same functionality as Ai,Id, etc; by having the ability to change leading for individual sentences or to be able to separate a new paragraph from the last.

  2. "Scaling Tool" (scale stroke weight, shadow effects & corners when resizing)

    Ability to scale attributes proportionately. When creating shapes, buttons, or icons within XD sometimes they need to be scaled to different sizes. Currently when scaling these shapes, buttons, or icons created within XD we can no scale some of the attributes proportionately.

    As an example I create a container box with a stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text. If I need to scale proportionately, like say 50%, the stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text don't scale proportionately.

    (Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

  4. Built-in Library of Wireframe Elements, for generic web / mobile design

    To be able to use XD as a useful tool for content architecting/wireframing (before design, before prototype) - a library of generic common web and mobile web elements would be very useful (in an easily accessible panel - NOT by copying and pasting from a template file).

    For example:
    - Image/Logo (resizable) placeholder
    - Horizontal and Vertical Nav placeholder
    - Icon library (like hamburger, search, map point, etc)
    - Text block (resizable) placeholder
    - Scrollbar (horizontal, vertical) placeholder

    etc

    Think Balsamiq, or OmniGraffle wireframe tools for example.

  6. Line/stroke ending in arrows

    Line start and end should allow arrows, triangle, or circles

    ----
    Original request:
    (this covers some topics already tracked elsewhere on UserVoice: please upvote those other suggestions if you're interested in dotted lines and CSS-driven styling).

    In CSS and other adobe tools we have Stroke or Border options like type or style (dotted, dashed) start and end (arrows, triangle, circles). In XD we do currently have weight and color options, though it will be amazing to add these options to reflect dotted arrow line or dashed border around a rectangle etc.

    Several of the items originally mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already:

    The only suggestion I think we don’t have listed yet is arrow-head line endings. To keep the request list tidy, I will change the title here so it is specifically focused on that one idea. Please upvote the other links above so your interest in those features is captured too.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  7. Find Font (globally replace one font with another)

    Include a "find font" panel like in Adobe Illustrator to globally replace one font with another. Even with the symbol/assets panel this is hard for documents that you did not architect and may require a lot of extra work (i.e. the iOS UI kits in a windows environment where San Francisco font has to be downloaded from third party sources and converted manually to .ttf)

  9. Allow multiple people to share a link to the same URL (multiple owners of a prototype or design spec)

    Collaborative work: Updating 'share link' of an .xd file not possible on another machine

    System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
    XD-Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta

    We are working with different people on the same .xd file. Updating the prototype link is only possible on the machine with wich the .xd file was created. The other people can only create new links.

    1. Create an .xd file
    2. Publish prototype
    2. Save the .xd file
    3. Open the same .xd file on another machine
    4. Updating the published prototype link not possible (only creation of new link)

  10. Record screen & clicks while using shared prototype online (user testing)

    well it doesn't make sense why you can only record the video when someone is on your computer trying out the prototype, and just thinking you should be able to record how someone is using it when they are overseas

  11. InDesign integration

    Would like XD to work with InDesign in much the same manner that AI and PSD files do. This might be more of a feature request for InDesign however I imagine they both play a role in working together.

    Ultimately, in order for a design to be implemented correctly, we need to provide a detailed UI specification for engineering. This specification is often worked on by interaction and visual designers which is part of what makes InDesign an ideal solution for us.

    The prototyping functionality is great for communicating how a design could work, but we still need an accompanying…

  12. Showing Layers AND Assets at the Same Time

    I can't believe this suggestion doesn't already exist, but I work on a 32" or a 27" monitor all the time. I have plenty of screen real estate. Why not let me view both Assets and Layers panels at the same time?

  13. Edit Color of Imported PNG (color overlay)

    Transparent PNGs do not allow color edits. Editing fills will extend to the rectangular bounds, not just the object

  14. Export files to flinto and Principle

    What I love from XD is the ability to design and prototype in the same tool without having to install hundreds of plugins and the lightweight that it is. Sometimes have to animate things faster with custom animations and I use these tools (Principle and Flinto) to create them. I've been obligated to recreate my designs into this tools then animate. It should be nice to have a export tool to this tools or others.

  15. Ability to connect shapes to draw a flowchart

    I would like to be able to connect different shapes (rectangles, rhombuses/diamonds, ellipses, but potentially everything). The connector line should either be solid, dashed or dotted and end in an arrow. If I move a shape, both of the connected shapes stay connected (the line expands/contracts as necessary). The line should be able to carry a text label, either in the middle, at the beginning or the end (supercool would be if you could add an offset from/to beginning/end of the line).

    In other words: I would like to be able to draw a flowchart.

    For me as a UX…

  16. Swap symbols / replace with symbol

    Ability to right-click to swap Symbols in Design mode
    Or replace selected artwork with an existing Symbol

    This request does NOT cover nested-symbol overrides (swapping an inner symbol differently in each copy of an outer symbol). For that, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/19592509-nested-symbol-overrides

  17. Fit Textbox to Text

    I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

    This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

  19. Align to key object

    One of the most convenient alignment features in illustrator is the 'align to key object', which Sketch doesn't support, making it difficult to align objects quickly. Please add that feature for XD.

  20. Repeat Grid: different icons / SVG images in each grid cell

    Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
    My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.

    It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).

    Thank you.
