    • 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.

      • Carousel / Side-scroll

        Ability to create and customise content carousels or slideshow type scrollable areas.

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

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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

                      • 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.

                        • 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,

                          • 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

                              • 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 ;)

                                  Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?

                                  • 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>,…

                                        • 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…
