      Just in general, it’s best to file each idea separately so that we can aggregate and prioritize. As it stands, all of these have already been filed:

      Please upvote them separately, and keep the ideas coming!

    • More fonts availability

      There should be more fonts available, I am trying to create a website design and I am not seeing the most common fonts like Sans Serif or Robota.

        Since we received no response on our query from three months ago, I’m marking this one as action-required. Please feel free to re-file this request with more clarification as to what you’re expecting to see.

        Thanks,

      • Advanced prototype

        you should make more prototype options... If you want this to be a great app look at some of the features in wix.com or ai2. I think like in ai2 you should use a block editor for anyone who wants to use it because it will open a lot of options. Also' look at all the wix features and see what you can add into the designing of this.

          Thanks for your interest! We asked for clarification about three months ago, and have not heard back. If you are interested in this still, please file the issue again with specific features you are looking for instead a pointer to another service. Thanks!

          Styling fonts seem to be very limited in XD which is a shame because I love everything else about it. Not asking for anything crazy, but simply to add the same text box feature in Illustrator to XD.

          The feature I'm talking about is the ability to easily change a line of text to a text box by double clicking in AI. Having that same feature in XD will help with my wireframing SO much.

          Also, the ability to easily shrink or enlarge type. Right now I can only enlarge texts NOT in a text box. When it's in a…

            Regarding the first issue, you should upvote this: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13615449 (ability to switch between area and point text). The second issue – you should be able to change a section of your area text by highlighting the text in edit mode. Check out the documentation here (click on “Format text” in the navigation to scroll to the right area): https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/help/text-tools.html

          • Once a change is made, allow to "update-link" without closing document

            I am able to open a file and make changes, then update the LINK under sharing.

            However, after making another change, there is no option to "update" the link. I have to close the file and re-open to update the link with those changes.

            My suggestion is each time the user clicks the "Share" button, to have the file check and see if any changes have been made. If so, allow to update-link. If no changes are seen, then gray it out until a change is made.

            • Repeat grid across 2 or more columns

              I have a 2 column grid of portrait photos, but the images that I select for 'Repeat Grid' only populate one of the columns instead of both columns. It would be really nice if the photos repeated i.e. from left to right, top to bottom.

              • Rulers and Guides

                This looks like it could eventually be a great competitor for Slack. However, critical to the design process are rulers and persistent guides, just like all other Adobe design products. This would seem like a first iteration feature. I couldn't really switch to XD until those crucial items are in place. Other than that, it's a very good start.

                • Prototype viewing - can window resize to current viewable art board size

                  When viewing a prototype in a browser (from a link) let's say we start off at a mobile size. Then when we click through to the desktop version can the viewport resize to the bounds of the art board dimensions please? The same would be in reverse: if you started off looking a desktop prototype and then clicked through to the mobile version, could the viewport resize to the art board bounds please?

                  It's a pain to have to keep resizing this when with clients or when looking at prototypes across various device sizes.

                  Thanks

                      Think about it - Xd+Dw, Mu, Ps, etc. I am not talking about all in one (Although, that would be extremely awesome!). In Comp, we have the ability to "Send to InDesign." We should be able to, by the click of a button, send a project (with all layers editable) to other programs that have the ability build websites, UI's, etc.

                      • Layout and picture boxes, rulers and guides

                        The model for layout programs is to use layout boxes that you import assets into whether text or pictures. This what makes layout programs like indesign so flexible and powerful.

                        Mask with shape is absolutely the wrong approach.

                        Adobe has had the worlds best layout and design program in indesign for more than a decade now. The XD team seriously need to start paying attention to how things are done in indesign if they want to create a great product. Just because XD is for the digital workspace does not mean that the principals of what make a great layout…

                            • Mouse scrolling around canvas maybe too sensitive.

                              When I scroll left,right,up and down it feels very sensitive and perhaps a little jerky when moving around the canvas.

                                  • Create path and shapes into image to be exportable in Zeplin

                                    When I export the screen into Zeplin, it seems like the SVGs are separated into ".Shape" in Zeplin. Please make all SVG file still be exportable to SVG/PNG file in Zeplin.

                                      • generate code attributes for ui to copy to Android, iOS or CSS

                                        I could be once you publish your design specs, you click on a UI element and you see the proper code snippet for that particular platform (android, ios, css)

                                        • Select all in common

                                          Referring to Premiere Pro, it would be good to have an option to Select all clips with a certain aspect in common.

                                          Similar to the "Select all Matching" function, which allows you to select one clip and then find all other clips that are from the same source file. "Select all in common" would allow you to match clips based on different commonalities.

                                          For example, you would choose "Select all in common" and it would take you to a pop up window with different options, such as "Effects" "Label" "Length" etc.
