  1. (Command + Scroll) Push Away vs Pull Toward, in Design Tab

    Scroll direction isn't natural (see Mac OS Gestures x Google Maps ixd). If I hit Command and scroll up, the art board pulls toward me on screen. It should push away from me as I scroll up. Considering we're all interaction designers here, likely designing interactive experiences, this seemed like something you'd want to address in the XD experience or at least allow as a preference.

  2. Repeat Grid spread over multiple sheets-allow pieces to auto seat into layers - then reselect all based on similar features or symbol

    Repeat Grid should allow you to spread over multiple sheets. Then "undo-grid" seats each pieces into a proper layer on each sheet.

    Once ungrouped and in separate layers, you should be able to reselect all shapes/groups based on similar features or symbol.

    XD would keep track of the grouping/ungrouping/Grid/Ungroup Grid actions and be able to reselect all or some (manually) NOT using symbols.

    I got lost in initially thinking this Grid tool was to spread from one sheet over many sheets versus using a symbol which doesn't give the same design behaviors as the grid tool.

  4. Search icon is the zoom icon

    Hello Guys,

    I am a visual designer and exploring adobe Xd suddenly one thing noticed my eye icon has been used for zoom in/out functionality actually use for search but adobe XD is using for zoom in/out. I was little bit confused so I chose to test this some of UX designer and visual design or normal people they got his as search icon not for Zoom in/out.

    For research prospective I checked this in photoshop CC so I found zoom icon little bit different form Adobe SD and in photoshop top left corner presenting the both zoom in and…

  5. Selecting and highlighting type is difficult

    Whenever I try to highlight type so I can make a change, the type does not get highlighted, instead it creates a new text area. XD should work the same way Illustrator does when it comes to highlighting, selecting, editing type.

  6. Send to After Effects - Choose where to save images

    Ability to save images in a specific location when sending to AE. I noticed it gets saved to the local disk, but our team works on a server so that isn't ideal.

  7. Keyboard shortcut to discard when saving Cmd+D on MacOS

    It's common in all other Adobe and MacOS products to have Cmd+D to discard saving the document when closing it. So I can quickly hit Cmd+W and Cmd+D to close document without saving changes instead of working with both keyboard and a mouse.

  8. Associate asset display type (grid, list) with the document

    It would be nice to be able to memorize the type of display of the assets by document: I often use the "grid" type and each time I open my document I have to switch.

  10. favicon

    Displaying the icon in browsers and launcher icons (iOS, Android) improves the experience with the user tests and the open a lot of opurtunities to experiment as a designer.

  11. Better image interpolation for device/web preview

    The quality of @x1 images when previewed on iPhone is very poor. It looks like XD is using interpolation that is not suitable for up-scaling, as the images are very pixelated - beyond the level I’d expect from normal 2x upscaling.

  12. Non-rectangular tap zones

    I prototype AR apps and whatnot, and have tried to use the Pen tool to draw a tappable shape around a simulated camera area. Trouble is, XD simplifies it to a bounding rect to trap taps, which can consume a lot that doesn't conform visually. It also makes overlaps trickier.

  13. Open from your computer

    Can we get "Open from your computer" in the mac file menu. It is painful to go have to click twice to open files.

  14. Unique id number per screen

    Problem: I cannot tell clients or partners to check screen X because everytime I update my XD files with new screens that are not at the end the pages on the bottom (x of total) change. So a screen on page 45 may become 46.

    Solution: Either add a new (fixed for ever) page number at the end or provide sperate (viewable IDs, probably together with the artboard's title).

  15. Mark / Label Key Pages (Artboards)

    When I create a project, I usually get a lot of arboards, and get loads of small varioations / overlays - so when I want for example print all, or export all to a PDF I will get LOADS of pages which I manually have to remove.. In some projects I also have the Mobile Layout too.

    So I would like to be able to Mark / Label / Flag / Group for some key artboards (like: Mobile 1, 2, 3, 4... or Desktop 1, 2, 3, 4... or maybe just mark as Key Artboard)
    So that when I then…

  16. Add export to context menu on artboards

    Would it be possible to introduce a short-cut option (right-click on Mac) to export each page directly from an artboard?

  17. Add text alignment as a property in the assets panel

    I would like to save the text alignment as a property in the assets panel, so that I don't have to readjust the alignment all the time.

    几个严重的缺陷!请赶快更新版本!

    1.资源面板中的字符样式存储功能,只能存储字体类别、颜色、大小,却无法存储左对齐、右对齐、居中对齐!真的超级麻烦,我每次都要重新调整对齐!

    2.形状描边无法使用渐变!难道XD就只能做界面吗?画个ICON都不行吗?

    3.描边无法扩展成形状!Sketch都能扩展啊啊啊啊啊啊!

    4.不能预设形状!每次都要画完形状后都要取消一次描边,恶心死了

    我将此更改为关于在资产面板中存储对齐。 其余建议已经在数据库中,需要您的upvote。

    *梯度中风:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/17796841
    *扩大笔划形状:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13808037
    *形状库:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13392015

    此消息已被机器翻译。

    I’m changing this to be about storing alignment in the assets panel. The rest of the suggestions are already in the database and need your upvote.

  18. Transition popup's destination should show artboards in Z-order

    At present, the list of Destinations within the prototype settings popup (see attached) is shown arbitrarily, seemingly having no sort order at all. For a document with more than a few Artboards, this makes trying to find the one you want really hard.

    The expected behaviour from my perspective is that the list of Destinations just follows the existing ordering of Artboards in the Layers panel. This way, a designer can order things as they like and then see the same order shown there.

    This is using Adobe XD 13.0.12.14 (latest version at time of writing).

  19. Layout grid should work like InDesign columns

    The grid system should work and look just like the columns in InDesign, the grid is a common thing for all graphic designers and making them look different across apps makes it all feel non cohesive.

  20. Text Frame Options like Indesign

    Because InDesign is such a powerful layout tool, it's textframe options are very helpful in typography (rightclick textframe > textframe options). It allows you to adjust padding inside of the text frame by the unit as well as vertical alignement.

    I know there are other requests for these items separately but I believe XD is capable of having text frames similar to that of InDesign and these would belong together.
