  1. 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.

    • 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.

          • View and share design prototypes at actual size

            The full-screen feature is nice but I need to be able to show clients what my designs will look like at actual size on the web. The prototypes need to be displayed at the size they are designed at. This is the one feature that would justify me switching from using InVision for my prototyping.

            • Export overview of all artboards: showing interaction flows, annotations, specifications

              I would like to share my full document to my team in order to communicate all specifications I added. This would help them giving a bit more context to the prototype and also be able to see all the different states of a pattern to build.
              Maybe save as a PDF file or also online?

              • Export Measurements for Developers

                Now that Adobe XD allows designers to measure all their elements. There's still the problem of having to deliver the design to the developers. They always require a spec sheet with the measurements. They don't want to download Adobe XD because they think it's hard to use, and would rather have a PDF opened instead.

                It would be great to have a feature where I can have the measurements present itself on the page when I export to PDF, instead of having to manually type in the measurements as well as drawing the lines between the elements of my app…

                • 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 ;)

                  • Import Illustrator / AI

                    Import Illustrator file with options to select layers and/or artboards.

                    This would increase ease of use and workflow, so a user is not always switching between apps.

                    • Built-in Library of Wireframe Elements, for generic web / mobile design

                      To be able to use XD as a useful tool for content architecting/wireframing (before design, before prototype) - a library of generic common web and mobile web elements would be very useful (in an easily accessible panel - NOT by copying and pasting from a template file).

                      For example:
                      - Image/Logo (resizable) placeholder
                      - Horizontal and Vertical Nav placeholder
                      - Icon library (like hamburger, search, map point, etc)
                      - Text block (resizable) placeholder
                      - Scrollbar (horizontal, vertical) placeholder

                      etc

                      Think Balsamiq, or OmniGraffle wireframe tools for example.

                      • Set spacing between objects to a specific number of pixels

                        Adobe Fireworks style specific alignment in pixels.

                        Set spacing vertically or horizontally, by typing a specific number value into the panel.

                        • 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…

                              Currently there is a "scroll" feature in build, but it seems to be about page scroll and up/down scrollable areas.

                                • Button tool - styled text box with padding, auto resizes 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

                                          Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.
