    • All functions of Adobe Fireworks

      Can you import all the features that were available in Adobe Fireworks. That was a great product I know a number of people still use.

        We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

        Some of the ideas mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

        Please feel free to file individual UserVoice suggestions with specifics for any other ideas that we may have missed. Thanks for your feedback!

      • K.I.S.S

        Don't bloat XD. Sketch are the winner in the category just because it does what you need to and nothing more and it does everything perfectly.

        Be honest, look at what Sketch does and take from that. The video that surfaced when Comet was announced was perfect. All it needs is what Silver (now owned by InVision) promises for Sketch).

        Why do we need support for Indesign and Photoshop files etc.

        Keep it simple, do it beautifully and we will come.

        • I want to be able to adjust the height of the text box

          Now the height of the text box of the text cannot be changed. I hope that we can provide us with the value of the text box and change the fixed height of the text box.

          • Back to calling artboard (without getting stuck in infinite loop)

            When creating navigation links in prototype mode, we can choose an existing artboard or 'previous artboard'.
            I'd like to see a third option 'calling artboard'. Let me explain the difference:

            In the attached diagram, on the left, a typical 'previous artboard' scenario is shown. Going from A, B or C to X and then on X clicking some back button will bring you back to A, B or C. No problem there.

            But the second scenario (right) is trickier: we go from A to X, at that point, A wil be the 'previous artboard'. We then roundtrip from X to…

              • Layers, default menus, type and rulers

                1. When you play your interactions, if you have a screen that is longer than the screen proportions, the height will adapt to the screen, leaving you with a narrower interface. This happens invariably with mobile and desktop interfaces. When you share the link, the link allows you to scroll on mobile but on desktop it still adapts to the height, not allowing you to scroll.

                Solution: it would be great to have a fit to width option

                2. You can’t animate an overlay. Say with the hamburger menu, in order to have a menu that opens and closes on…

                  Please file each feature request individually, to keep the list tidy and so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in.

                  I think everything listed here is covered by other feature requests already. Please upvote these if they fit:

                  1. Scrolling tall artboards — this feature is now supported
                  2. Menus and other overlays – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12924909-overlays-sidebar-menu-popup. With animation – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869229-animation-support-microinteractions.
                  3. Improved character styling — line-height is now supported. A number of other specific feature requests have already been filed here, so please search out the specific ones you’re interested in and upvote those.
                  4. Grid snapping is now supported. Column/margin/gutter style grid systems – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12924606-layout-grid-columns-rows-margins. Manually created guide lines – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14160453-guides

                  Guys we all appreciate the great work you are putting into this and we understand you can't work on everything at once, but at the same time, from the users' point of view, it can seem like a risky move to even consider switching moving to XD when there's no knowing which features will be implemented and when.

                  For example if I had jumped in 6 months ago assuming underline will be supported by now, I would have been wrong.

                  It would help if you could share at least some rough estimates for what you intend to work on for…

                    Thanks for your feedback! We share as much as we can in our monthly blog posts in the Creative Cloud blog, in live streams, and at events like Adobe MAX, but we’re hesitant to publish a public roadmap due to the competitive landscape and the fact that we do pivot quite often to address feedback we get on UserVoice and in person. We totally understand your desire to get a hard list of items we’re working on, but we’re afraid we can’t provide such a list. We do keep UserVoice updated as much as we can, though, so our hope is that you find the information here useful!

                    -Elaine

                  • Great Job Guys! June 20: Scrollable Artboards.. (Applause) ..How about having a "praising page" for the Adobe XD Team.?

                    Tons of complaints, I know.. You guys deserve a page to show you praise and approval of your hard work! Great to read during lunch time.

                        If I understand this correctly, this is a feature request for Adobe Animate CC 2015 and not for Adobe Experience Design CC. If you would like video support in Adobe XD, please do upvote here:

                      • Duplicate vs. copy & paste

                        1. What's the difference between 'duplicate' and 'copy & paste' in the drop down?

                        2. When I copy & paste, I didn't notice the paste happened exactly on top of the copy. It took me a whole to notice where it was, the realized how many I did that was hidden behind. Please make this more apparent.

                        • Refresh button on Prototype view

                          There should be a button on prototype view window where we can just refresh our prototype instead of closing and playing the prototype again. An example of this exists in Protopie prototype window.

                            • Retina format option

                              Hi Adobe!

                              Actually we have 2 options to export our assets of a desktop design:
                              The "design" mode or the "web" mode with a x2. The thing is that this both formats have the same size!

                              The quality is not good and I need a Retina format (a REAL x2 size) to export in better quality.
                              So for a picture 100x120px, I have to export in 200x240px to preserve a good quality. After that, the developers reduce the size by 2 BUT the quality is really better.

                              Retina format is now a really needed feature to produce high quality websites.

                                  I have been using XD for over a year now. I recently did a blog post raving about how good it is.

                                  In part 2 I do mention where it could be improved. I noticed that one bug bear has been fixed already and that's the pasting of prototype links. Good stuff!

                                  • How to preview adobe xd documents on mobile offline?

                                    Saw the December update. Says you can now preview offline documents on your iOS or Android device.

                                    The question is how?

                                    • Keep Simple!!

                                      Here are heaps of feedback & requests for powerfulness... However, I strongly believe that the most remarkable advantage of AdobeXD is its "simplicity", and I really love it. I really hope you keep it simple.

                                        Thanks a ton for your feedback! We’re definitely looking to maintain the simplicity of the product as we grow as an ecosystem. In all of our new features, we hope you’ll see the value of simplicity and clean design in each feature’s design.

                                        I’m closing this as not a feature request, as keeping things simple is a value we intend to pursue and not necessarily a specific request. :)

                                        Thanks,

                                        -Elaine

                                        When setting text, an arbitrary number is shown for the size (and all other attributes), with no unit — I am assuming this size is in points, but I can't be sure. While I can just size visually, it would be nice if the units were displayed and could be specified. That way, I can use sizes I know work without guess-and-checking in a life size preview.

                                        • Extensive GPU Support

                                          To speed things up big-time!

                                          Most of the users will have a decent graphics card anyway to support a big screen resolution (which is comfortable when designing)

                                            I’m marking this as not a feature request, as we haven’t yet released Windows yet. That being said, we’re definitely making sure that our Windows app is going to be as performant as it can be, which means using every trick in the book (including leveraging the GPU) to make sure it’s as zippy as possible. Stay tuned!
