    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Record screen & clicks while using shared prototype online (user testing)

          well it doesn't make sense why you can only record the video when someone is on your computer trying out the prototype, and just thinking you should be able to record how someone is using it when they are overseas

          • 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.

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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 ;)

                      • 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

                        • 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…

                              • 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.

                                  • 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 :)

                                    • 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.

                                      • Enable timed transitions (not triggered by user interactions)

                                        Enable timed transition, something triggered by timing and not by user interactions (e.g. a notification from a server or a splash screen going away in a couple of seconds).

                                        • Choose reference / anchor point for transform origin and X, Y display

                                          Being able to change the reference point from the upper-left to center or lower right or whathaveyou is so useful in other Adobe apps. Having to do everything with top-left x/y is a pain when trying to position objects by their center.

                                          Choose point by clicking 9-grid icon
