  1. Text formatting

    Where are the text formatting tools present on Photoshop and illustrator ?
    - underline
    - all in capital
    - small capital
    - superior/exponent
    - inferior/sign
    - barred

    Even making a copy / paste formatting of the text isn't preserved.

    Waiting for an answer from Adobe XD Team

    Best regards

    • shadows, shadows, shadows, shadows

      There are already a few requests about fundamental shadow implementation but seem to have gotten no attention. Without these in place it will be difficult to design today's interfaces in XD.

      First: Shadow spread - positive and negative.

      Second: Multiple Shadows on one object.

      Third: Shadow is clipped by object - so that if the object has transparency the shadow isn't showing through it.

      These are basic shadow capabilities on every other program and used daily by interface designers.

      Negative spread is key. It will allow us to create these (see attachment) types of shadows without workarounds and is supported…

      • Everything !

        Every design options Sketch has (style, gradient, type,etc)
        Every Prototype options InVision has (gestures, links, etc, etc,etc
        Every Animation possibilities Principle has
        Every Animation possibilities InVision/Motion will have
        Every prototype options InVision/Silver flow will have.

        Then you can start using the word "revolutionize"
        Because right now their is no way we can switch to that tool !!

        I don't want to be rude, I'm sure its a great deal of work, but the promise was that it would be a one-time tool and it is far far far from that...

          Thanks again for the honest feedback! If XD does not make sense to you, it’s totally ok to use the tools that make sense to your workflow. Hopefully, we will do a good job, deliver value with our monthly releases, and one day you can start using it for real work.

          If you’d like to track the progress in the different areas you highlighted above, could you please break them down in separate feature requests? It would be more useful for you to get updates on the progress of each feature request, separately.

          Thanks a lot.

        • Smart Symbols + Custom Variables + Custom Layout

          -We need to be able to change content on each symbol.
          such as text in buttons

          -It would be awesome to add any variable such as size or state giving the ability to do responsive elements.

          -another way of describing the above would be if you have a list of items but that same symbol could be turned into a grid. these are all things you can do with CSS we as designers should be able to do it in the design.

          Finally, Margin's and Paddings for elements within other elements This could all be done with these custom variables…

            Hi there! A couple of things about this request:
            - It’s much better to separate requests like these into individual requests, as it allows for others to search and upvote much easier
            - We already have all of these requests in our database! Please upvote the following features:

            Thanks!

            -Elaine

          • Fully functional prototype

            Basically create the same features as axure but easier to use. more animation, input fields, dynamic panels, button hover states, etc.

              In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. Thanks!

            • Export Options

              Need to export high-quality PNGs and JPGs

              For general use propose - saving into PDFs, Keynote, sending in addition to the working prototype

              The PNG export option for the artboard results in an asset that is too poor of quality for general use

                We’d like individual suggestions to be more 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:

                Some of the other topics here are not yet captured anywhere else. Can you create individual, separate suggestions for these with more details about your needs for each one?

                • Keynote export
                • PNG export poor quality (Can you file a bug with more details about the quality problems you’re seeing? PNGs exported from XD should generally be very high-quality)

                Thanks for your feedback!

              • Text features: Bullets & Numbering, Indenting, Headings

                Text fields should be able to show the basic semantic categories that HTML offers: paragraphs, unordered lists/bullets, ordered lists/numbers, indentations, headings of various levels. These should be able to be controlled via styles. Otherwise, it's challenging to use XD to design any text-heavy web page or app.

                  • Windows Features

                    Adobe hello, please, the following features that improve the functionality of Adobe XD
                    1. First, please, add the FTP function in the export menu. The finished project should be able to send assets to FTP server.
                    2. It will be useful to greater choice of visual effects transition elements such as animation hiding bar, push effect. Every element loaded on Website Design should be an additional transition settings.
                    3. Please add blur effects, and the possibility of cutting elements, as the case OSX.

                    Best reagrds to all Team :)

                      Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one request in each entry, not multiple. As Joan mentioned, we recently shipped blur effects.

                      Please feel free to upvote the following for your other requests:

                    • Prototyping + Testing

                      I just gave Adobe XD a try, and I have to say- I think it's a great start toward something I might use, but needs a vast amount of work in order to be a truly valuable tool. As a full-time UX/UI Designer, let me tell you what I'd like to see added to this program:

                      -The ability to, not only navigate form one page to another, but to add custom animations to that navigation (beyond just "push left" "dissolve" etc).

                      -The ability to create animations based on user behavior on a single page. For example, when a user taps…

                          • Improved elements manipulation

                            It is actually a set of improvement ideas:

                            - Bring in the layers, rulers & guides. It'd be extremely helpful to better organize the elements on the working environment.

                            - Further text capabilities: underline? hyphenation? Currently, the paragraph manipulation is rather limited, compared to (say) Illustrator/inDesign.

                            - For Adobe loyal users (like myself) adapting to a radically new set of shortcuts feels weird, and adds extra difficulty to everyday tasks. 'A' for artboards, ’R’ for rectangles and ‘E’ for ellipses makes sense, if you never-ever used illustrator/photoshop/indesign. ’Tab’ for hiding all panels would also be really handy.
                            - What about…

                            • Import from other Adobe tools

                              You already have powerful design tools. Hence, please don't try to re-invent the wheel by providing a 'Design' tab. The right direction for Adobe to go would be to just enhance the current prototyping ability by just letting people import design from other tools from your suite. Currently it breaks really badly when you copy/paste stuff between tools and is quite painful.

                                  Thanks for your feedback! We’ve been working on growing XD’s prototyping capabilities, and I think you’ll see some vast improvements in the upcoming months. More specifically about this database, it’s best if you file an individual ticket per idea so that we can better aggregate with other people’s ideas.

                                  In this case, all of your ideas are already in the database and are just waiting for your upvote:

                                • Invision comes with Studio and XD are still sleeping.

                                  Guys are you sleeping, there comes a lot of stong competitors and your Update intervalis every two month without nice features and more Bugs. Now Invision will launch Studio and it looks great.
                                  I dont know what you do the last two years but the other are right behind.

                                  • Please make this a viable and fully usable Adobe product, not a shell of what it could be.

                                    Symbols not being on Windows first release. UI Kits being left out of the same, as well as layers panel and launch screen. The fact that individual items in a symbol (for navigation and menus for example) can not be individually linked to separate places...and that option having the ability to toggle for global or individual editing... is absurd.

                                    The benefits for using Adobe products...are that they behave like and interact with other adobe products. So far, this is only happening an a fairly limited basis. :/

                                    The more I play with this...the more I'm considering buying another Mac and…

                                      Definitely appreciate the sentiment behind this, but I’m closing this suggestion as a general one. We’ve seen a lot of features roll in over the past two years. Please do upvote ideas that are specific to your needs so that we can better prioritize!

                                    • Text Frame Options

                                      Options for align text vertically, apply color settings to frame such as fill, border and padding like InDesign text frames.

                                      • More typographic features

                                        I'd like to see more options for typography, such as all caps, small caps and opentype features.

                                        • Option to disable zoom animation

                                          Currently, zoom animation takes really long. I am used to pretty fast zooming in Photoshop and Illustrator - just one scroll of a wheel and you immediately are where you want to be.
                                          I think I am not the only one, thus an option to disable this long transition would be great.
                                          Also, there would be no need for blurring effect while zooming because there wouldn't be any redundant frames to render.
