  1. 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 ;)

    • 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.

      • Shortcut to activate eyedropper to pick a color

        I really miss the (l) colorpipette/colorpicker shortcut. Because I now have too much (mouse/pen)movement to the right panel, in stead of doing all with shortcuts... This and more shortcuts from photoshop/illustrator like (z) for zoom.

        • 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 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

            • 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

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                            • 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.

                                • 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?

                                  • Text input field with actions

                                    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.

                                    • Embed fonts for mobile preview

                                      Would be nice if fonts were embedded into the XD file. If not you aren't able to preview the app design with the correct font from iOS or android when syncing from creative cloud.

                                      • Tabbed design view for multiple files

                                        Similar to Photoshop or Illustrator (See attached file), it would be valuable to allow for multiple files to be opened and arranged in the design pane using tabs. This would give users a quick way to switch between their projects and will provide a much better workflow in general.

                                        This is a must for me!

                                          Spell check please! Much needed for someone who sometimes glances over simple spelling errors
