  1. Import Photoshop / PSD

    Import Photoshop 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. Import options for layers, artboards, or even layer comps, would also cut down a lot of rework.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • Export to Muse CC

                It would be so useful to layout your designs in XD and then to export them straight to muse in the .muse format to refine or to be able to open an XD widget in Muse to prototype your iPhone layout, for example.

                  • 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,

                    • 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

                        • 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.

                          • 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 ;)

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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…
