  1. Eyedropper tool to copy styles

    Ability to use the eyedropper tool to copy existing text styles and ability to click on existing paths to copy stroke, colour etc.

    These features are available in Illustrator and would be really helpful in XD too!

    Apologies for the lack of update on this! We now have a new feature that should address this problem: paste appearance. In Design mode, copy any object and then select any number of objects to apply styles to (including text). Then you can execute the paste appearance command (Cmd+Opt+V for Mac, Ctrl+Alt+V for Windows) and apply anything from text styles to border styles.

    As always, we’re looking for feedback on what changes you’d like to see in the feature going forward, so try it out for a little while, then file your suggestions here in UserVoice!

    If you don’t see your August update immediately, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click the gear, and select “Check for App Updates.”

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  2. Show the layer names on design spec mode

    When the developer clicks an element, the layer name is not shown. Today he can only see the type of that layer ("Rectangle", "Text", "Group", etc). If the layer name was shown the designers could append information on that layer like the asset name or the color variable that should be used on that element.

  3. [Windows] Paste from Photoshop

    I tried to copy a rasterized image and text from PSD but I can't paste it in XD. also from illustrator, I made a logo the i copy it but I can't paste it in XD.

  4. Flexbox functionality (Smart Layout)

    Basically the same function as flex has in CSS.


    • Justify: Space Between

    • Justify Space Arround


    • Direction: Column and Row


    This will make is easier to spred icons or text in a container.

  5. Auto-scroll when wiring

    Give the ability to move the screen in the direction of your mouse (from center of screen) if zoomed in too far while dragging a screen-link line.

    If a user is zoomed in too far and wants to make a connection. They should be able to drag the line in any direction and when they reach the end of the screen, the background should move with them (a la pen tool in Illustrator [and many others])

  6. Drag and Drop Artboards from PS/Sketch to Import into XD

    It would be great if XD could have an Extension that works with Sketch and Photoshop to export Artboards to XD - like you would do with Zeplin or Proto.io

    The ability to import the exported dartboards into XD with all the assets sliced, imported and placed in their original/correct position, all groups and layers are preserved just like they were in the original design app.

    This would be a massive time saver and speed up our workflow hugely

    Hi everyone,

    In our March release we’ve released the ability to open Photoshop & Sketch files in XD. After reading this thread, i think that feature is covering what was originally requested here.

    Can you try it out and let me know if this is what you need?

    How it works:
    You can bring your Photoshop or Sketch files into XD by simply opening a PSD or a .sketch file with the CMD-O command or by selecting “Open” from the “File” menu. Your file will automatically convert into a new XD file with your artboards, layers, and assets editable and at a high fidelity.

    You can find more details about March release here:
    https://theblog.adobe.com/march-2018-update-adobe-xd/

    Let me know your feedback.

    Thanks,
    Dan

  9. Support game controller navigation

    There are many applications where the interface is navigated with input devices like game controllers. It would be great if we could get some support for these.

  10. Move Fix Position when scrolling back to design mode

    i ve just noticed you removed the preserve scroll position from design. This is a horrible thing for me. Doing that forces me to prototype EVERYTHING.

    for example: i have 100 artboards that are unconnected due to time saving ( i dont need to prototype everything ) but moving that button forces me to do it becaus now i cant make a quick preview for my client where he can scroll up and down. Now i will have to connect ALL 100+ boards together.

    why? Because when you are EXPORTING for REVIEW or DEVELOPMENT
    only the connected boards are being…

  11. Text area with fixed width but auto height (grows/shrinks vertically as text edited)

    I'd like to be able to make a text area with a fixed width -- so the text automatically wraps onto multiple lines -- but with no fixed height so that the height auto fits to the text.

    Basically, I want it to act like area text (fixed size) in the horizontal direction but point text (auto size) in the vertical direction.

    XD’s January 2018 update now supports integration with Zeplin (as well as Avocode, ProtoPie, Sympli, and Kite Compositor). Read more at https://theblog.adobe.com/introducing-popular-3rd-party-integrations-adobe-xd/

    Zeplin is only supported on Mac right now. If you’re interested in Zeplin support with XD on Windows, please let us know by upvoting https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/33045610-zeplin-integration-on-windows

  14. General API for Extensions: Layers, Groups and Elements

    I would very much like to see at least a general API that gives me access to the full object hierarchy in an XD project - artboards, group, layers, elements and their properties - along the lines of the sketch API current specification

  15. Scrollable pages in prototype full screen preview

    Enable 'fit to width' and scroll pages when previewing prototypes.

    Currently the full screen preview fits the height of the design within your screen, so for long desktop pages, you can't mimic a browser experience.

  16. Make Design Spec publicly accessible

    At the moment, my development team do not have an adobe subscription, and I often work with external organisations who also do not use adobe either.

    As a result, I need the ability to share a public link to the design specs so that they can access it.

  17. Ability to resolve a comment as done

    It would be nice to have an option to have a check box to resolve comments & feedback. I think dropbox has this feature now.

    This would be helpful so that as I'm designing I can every easily see the issues that still need address & those that might need some more attention.

  18. Artboard Scrolling

    This idea addresses how we can have longer pages beyond the current artboard dimensions without manually resizing.

    Artboards could actually be just a viewport. You could double click on a given artboard to open an expanded canvas.

    In the crude example I've uploaded below, I can still keep all of my screens aligned as I have been. When I double click on an artboard, the canvas is expanded to show I have much more content on the page. Perhaps the rest are dimmed to emphasise where we are. Think isolated mode in Illustrator.

    This would keep the best of the…

    This is indeed completed. We have a few additional enhancements to this feature that we’ll be adding in an upcoming release including a property inspector addition for scrolling giving you more control over your viewport and an artboard’s ability to scroll.

  19. Disable swiping on mobile prototype

    Please provide an option to disable swiping between artboards during the Live Preview on the Adobe XD iOS app. I want testers on the mobile app to only be able to navigate using the interactions I've authored. Them being able to swipe at any time prevents me from getting a valid test out of them.

  20. 7-Day Trial not long enough for purchase decision

    Update to XD CC version today.

    I've been using XD for a while now and have been a big fan ...up until today.

    Like many others, I've invested a lot of time testing out this product. Also like others, I've done this on real projects in order to put XD to the test; see if it works for my workflow and so on. It was a risk I knowingly took.

    However, with such a short trial window for the official release, I feel like Adobe now has me over a barrel. There have been a few critical features missing which…
