  3. Export whole artboards (or entire project) as HTML

    It would be great to Export Prototypes as pure HTML Projects. I am working a lot on Multiscreen apps, where I mostly use Serveal Webcontainers Running on several Screens, to develop those Applications.

  4. Global/Master artboard templates (pin objects across all artboards)

    1. Ability to have a single object (or group) break out of its artboard and cross multiple artboards within a single prototype. The simplest use case is the creation of a global navigation bar that spans across multiple screens. This object's interactive elements would also work across multiple screens as well, and any edits to this object would update across the rest of the screens.

    2. Easy interaction management and editing. Also provides consistency with consistent elements within an experience.

  6. Gestures - swipe, pinch/zoom, force touch

    In order to full use this as a UX professional, I would have to have the ability to include gestures, most critically for handing a stakeholder a wireframe or design. Gestural swipes, two-finger zoom, force-touch, etc. Otherwise I don't think too many experience UX professionals will be able to properly communicate core functionality and the behavioral imperatives incumbent to the process.

  8. Text input field with actions based on value

    For prototyping and user testing, a text input field control would be very helpful. Bonus if you could apply actions to enter / submit based on different strings.

  9. Button tool - style text box with border, background color, padding (auto resized when text changes)

    To speed workflow it would be good to have button tool in the sidebar. In the property inspector you'd have the ability to specify the top,bottom, left and right padding. the width of button would dynamically resize as you type the button's label.

  10. Saving color palettes - shared across documents or users

    I want to have a consistent set of swatches, with the ability to import saved palettes or to share/export a palettes. It would be nice to have access to multiple palettes as well

  11. Interactive Prototyping for User Testing

    I use JustInMind to prototype Web and Mobile apps that I then user-test. The JIM application is less than optimal, but to attract a broader Human Factors / Usability / Design audience you're going to need a lot more than "scrolling."

    Interactive elements such as text fields, check boxes, drop-downs, etc. that can all be connected, responding to user inputs as needed, in a manner that replicates a real application in its native environment is what is needed.

    I look forward to that day, as your design tools and simple, visual linking paradigm are certainly winners.

  12. Interactive form elements

    Ability to create interactive relationships, like radio inputs, if you select one it deselects the other. Selecting different options can change the outcome when the user hits 'Submit' etc

  13. Use CSS properties / classes to specify object appearance

    Add unique CSS properties to object properties.
    Things like Margins, Padding and un-even borders are not common for design apps, but it would be great to define them per object in XD, honor them in the design mode, and export them as part of the object css,

  14. Add your own custom UI Kits

    The ability to add your own UI Kits to the start screen

    It's great having iOs etc on there but for professionals working on lots of projects (web based) for big brands there is definitely a need to have custom UI Kits for each brand. This will speed up projects massively as well as maintaining consistency across all projects. Thats essential when you are working to strict brand guidelines.

    Make it happen Adobe ;)

  15. Set Default Style for Text Tool

    Description:
    Once I select a font in TEXT panel I want this font to be default font every time I use the Text tool. Until I change it again.

    Why is this valuable to you:
    Now you have to change font every time when you use Text tool — bad usability. Slows down the workflow.

    Additional request 1:
    Also, it would be nice to set a base font size for the project. So that every time I use Text tool I'm suggested this exact size.

    ----
    Additional request 2:
    Possibility to set up default global font sizes for <p>, <h1>,…

    Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.

  16. Logic in prototyping - conditional behavior, branching, if/then

    To be able to prototype for usability testing and demonstrations there needs to be a bit more intelligence around how experiences are joined up togehter.

    If clause example:
    If user makes choice a, do x. If user makes choice b, do z. And so on.

    Variables:
    When user makes a choice/clicks/fills in a field etc. assign a variable. Then allow designer to use variables in an if-clause to make decision which roots to go down.

    Thank you :)

  17. Please make an iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support

    I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.

    A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

  18. HeatMaps / Analytics (User Testing results) recorded from shared prototype online

    It would be great to generate Heat Maps & Analytics of what users are trying to click on...completion rates, etc.

    Maybe a "click counter" or "timer" to see how long it takes for users to accomplish a goal.

    Maybe put this info under the "Manage Links" section.

  19. Dynamic link with other CC file formats - edit in Photoshop/Illustrator auto-updates in XD

    It would be great to simply import psd files into XD through either 'file // import PSD', or, in photoshop, 'file // export to XD', without having to rework the files.

    An example for this would be a user that is designing an app in photoshop and has around 15 artboards. It would be great if the user could simply import each artboard into XD to create a wireframe to show a client / colleague, whilst also continue to make amends to the artboards in photoshop.

    This could involve having some kind of Dynamic link between Photoshop and XD, so…

  20. When creating a text field, automatically fill it with lorem ipsum.

    Well, just as the title says. When selecting a text field and dragging across an art board, fill it with lorem ipsum automatically. If you don't need a dummy text - simply start writing to overwrite it. Would make prototyping text rich websites much faster.
