  1. Allow multiple users to work on one file

    Multiple users should be able to work on one file without creating conflicting files. Ideally users could work on different artboards without conflict a la Powerpoint.

    Users should also be able to see who is currently editing the same file.

  3. Add Adobe Typekit

    Would love to work with My Typekit fonts inside XD. UX design without Character Panels such as in Illustrator is almost illegal.

  4. 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.

  6. Export interactive prototype as native mobile app (iOS, Android)

    Hi,

    I'm Head of Brand Management in a marketing department. And more and more often we need to make a simple app to our colleagues in sales. Very simple functionality but vital information. The problem is that our development department do not have time and recourses to help us doing the coding for us.
    So basically my suggestions is quite simple: Why can't Adobe XD have a export or build function like nativ.com or Appy Pie where you can build an app without coding. I do my designs in XD, Photoshop etc. and I have a licens for Adobe CC…

  8. Repeat Grid: different 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.

  10. 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?

  11. Create and organize symbols/components into folders

    Would love to organize symbols into folder for easy accessibility. I spend too much time looking through symbols into one library.

  12. Choose reference / anchor point for transform origin and X, Y display

    Being able to change the reference point from the upper-left to center or lower right or whathaveyou is so useful in other Adobe apps. Having to do everything with top-left x/y is a pain when trying to position objects by their center.

    Choose point by clicking 9-grid icon

  13. Better svg export

    Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
    the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

    It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

    A cleaner svg would…

    Hi,

    The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

  14. Make "None" the default transition, not "Dissolve"

    I would really like the default transition for wires to be "None," not "Dissolve." I have almost never seen a real website or app or desktop software do page transitions with a dissolve transition, so I don't understand why it's the default transition. I have to change the transition from "Dissolve" to "None" every time I create a new project. I could be the only user who wants this, but I wanted to make this request.

  17. Multiple sharing links for different subsets of same file

    I´m designing for several screens at once and would like to be able to create separate links for the different screens. Eg one for desktop, one for tablet and one for phone. So that I easily can work on all the screens at once and don't have to change files.

    As a workaround for this featire you can make your home artboard an “index” page which links to the different views/subsets of your design. When you share your design and visit the URL you can click through to the real home artboards and copy the URL (each artboard has it’s own URL on the shared link). You can then share these URLs to link people to a subset of your design.

    We hope to be able to formalize this feature in the future.

  18. Overlay States

    I would like the ability to move an overlay through it's own transitions without impacting the underlying area.

    For example, let's say you have a button that says Help.
    Click Help
    Overlay slides in with message box, asks a question.
    User clicks Yes. Msgbox transitions to a new box, but underlying background (not part of the transition) remains.

    I have a problem like this where I have a drawer a user can expand over the contents to activate slides and switches. Problem is, once you start trying to use that toolbox, the background is lost.

    Overlays seem to only be…

  19. Include Baseline Grid for text

    I really like the feature on InDesign where you can view the baseline grid for text. Since the placement of text on a website depends on where it sits in its own baseline grid, it would be really helpful if there was a way to toggle it on and off.

    Having this would make it easier to know where exactly a block of text would be placed if it were say, 30px underneath an image.

    It would also really help if I wanted to make a word have a background color, so I could easily figure out how tall that…

  20. Repeat grid properties in the property inspector (spacing, number of rows/columns)

    Currently, there's no simple way to look up or adjust the spacing of an existing repeat grid element (other than grabbing and dragging the spacing area).

    This is sometimes bothersome because, 1) when just trying to look it up, you don't always want to change the spacing, and 2) finding the spacing adjustment area can be a bit fiddly.

    Also, when you DO want to adjust the spacing, it can be a bit tricky to get it on the exact pixel.

    Therefore, it'd be nice if the spacing property would show up as an input field in the right (properties)…
