  1. Incorrect display of the borders of the viewer

    The lower boundaries of the prototype view window are displayed as rectangular, rather than rounded, as upper. Rather, they are both rounded and straight at the same time.

    Version 16.0.2.8 (Starter)

  2. Affordance to see/change Home Artboard in design mode.

    Currently there is no way to know which artboard is the "Home Artboard" outside of Prototype mode, and there's no way of changing it in design mode.

    I make a lot of presentations/decks in XD and I don't often use prototype mode. When I share a prototype/deck I assume the first slide is going to be the artboard in the upper left because this the default order for unlinked artboards in XD: left-to-right, top-to-bottom.

    I currently don't have any visual indication (in design mode) as to which artboard is my "home artboard." Which means sometimes I don't know that my…

  5. Delete Button to delete assets/styles in the Assets panel

    It would be great to have the ability to use the delete button to delete color/character styles and symbols (instead of having to right-click).

  6. Font Matching

    When I design, I put a prototype screen, with a look and feel that I like, next to my artboard, and use this as inspiration, like I guess many people do. It would be great if I could get the attributes of the font on the prototype (png or jpg) and quickly use that font in my own design.

  7. Duplicate document from the Start Screen

    Right before opening the project. Listed of all created projects should be able to right mouse click to drop a menu to duplicate or anything to do with outside of the project.

  8. "L" shaped elements cover and prevent the selection and identification/specs of everything below them.

    Please look at this XD "Design Specs" file:
    https://xd.adobe.com/spec/37ccb941-8fd4-4a7f-6223-499948dc3fcb-41fd/

    The "L" shaped elements (colored RED and FUCHSIA in the file) cover and prevent the selection of and identification of the specs, of everything below them. Even though these "L" shaped elements are not closed shapes they cover everything below them (BTW, it's the same when there is a surrounding border that is above everything else, layer wise).

    Please, this must be corrected.

    The attached file was "Exported" to PDF.

  9. Smooth anti-aliased font

    The fonts in XD are so crisp on windows. I kinda like lost my soul of using it there compared to figma.

  10. Export Icon used two different ways without a label

    Make a new icon for "batch export". The same icon is used for a different part if the interface to "open in browser". One icon should never be used to convey two different meanings unless they are also labeled.

  11. Drag a list of colors to a repeat grid to color elements

    It would be awesome if we could drag a list of plain text hex code / rgb values to a repeat grid in a similar way that we do with text.

    That doesn't describe it too well but I've made a quick mockup of what I mean. So imagine there is a file with hex codes and I drag it to one of the elements and all the colours change as per the codes.

  12. Import CSV or XLS Data to a Repeat Grid

    Ability to drop a spreadsheet on a text field within a repeat grid. Dialogue would appear, allowing user to select the desired column of data.

    Super useful whenever displaying lots of data. For example, when creating layouts for mobile that are based on tables in desktop versions (see attached).

  13. Easier access to color swatches

    As a user who works with design systems and color palettes often, it would speed up my workflow considerably, if I could select a color swatch directly without opening the color palette.
    A quick selector that openes on hover and shows the swatches could be a nice solution.
    Or color shortcuts.

  14. Access log for published prototypes

    It would be nice to have a list of people who logged in the prototype and date/time, to be aware of who accessed it.

    I had a security issue in a confidential project and it would be useful to measure the extension of the leak before changing the password.

  16. Ability to adjust grid values

    The gird layout seems to work automatically which isn't correct and not how web design works from a coding point of view.

    I simply want to have 45px margins on the left and right with a 12 grid column. It's IMPOSSIBLE to do this. It keeps re-adjusting things.

    Is this suppose to work like this?

  18. Drag on a curve

    The may overlap other requests, apologies if it does. The ability to drag along a line is fantastic but if we could drag around a circle it would open up a whole lot more to your users.

  19. character styles name in CC Library is showing as the typeface name rather than what I named it

    In CC Library, I should see the character styles I created named by the name I assigned, not the typeface. e.g. I should see "H1", "H2", "Body" instead of "Roboto", Roboto", Roboto"
    (Is this a feature request? it certainly seems like a bug...)
