  1. Export size options (e.g. export only 2x version)

    The ability to select my sizes for export would be nice. At times I work on apps (as strange as it may sound) that do not require all resolutions of artwork (1x, 2x, 3x) An option to select my would be great. Similar to how Sketch handles it.

    • 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,

      • Create separate, custom hotspot areas (e.g. larger than the visible shapes)

        Now you can connect layers but what if you want to connect a hit area larger than a layer? Now you can work around this by drawing a rectangle behind the area and linking that up, but it would be great to be able to draw actual hotspots.

        • 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.

          • Add Adobe Typekit

            Would love to work with My Typekit fonts inside XD. UX design without Character Panels such as in Illustrator is almost illegal.

            • Change default fill and stroke settings (color, etc.) used when drawing new shapes

              It's quite frustrating that every time I use the shape tools, I have to remove the stroke and change the fill.
              Like in ID and AI, it would be useful if the object fill and stroke remembers the previous settings, or a default could be somehow set.

              • Unhide all layers

                Elaine, where in UserVoice should we put this request, if not here? The implementation of hide and show objects needs to be very much improved. It really needs to be like Illustrator where you can hide one object at a time but also unhide all of them. To unhide 10 hidden objects in XD, you currently have to click 10 times in the "layers" palette. When these items are near all adjacent to each other on the artboard, but all mixed up in the layers palette it is extremely frustrating. Especially when in AI it just requires one simple keystroke…

                  Ability to view team prototypes. Similar to how you can view team assets. So that I as a creative director, or other team members can quickly find and reference prototypes completed by other team members

                  • Ability to add rationale

                    Given a set of rationales, and the ability to add a custom one, be able to add a rationale to a given design pattern or interaction. This will help with a design review. In a review, we need to explain the "why" and this would help communicate that.

                      We are exploring ways to add additional notes to artboards that would be available upon certain type of exports. Is this what you are thinking of? Where would you see the rationale showing up?

                    • Set width and height in percentages

                      When you enter a width for an object, also be able to set the size using a percent.

                      • Embed fonts for 'untethered' mobile preview from Creative Cloud

                        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.

                        • Comment inbox in web prototype

                          I would like to have an inbox with all the new comments listed and each one linking to the appropriate page/screen.

                          Right now you have to go through each page to see if there is a comment or not. This is tedious if you're using XD as a client review tool.

                            • Reorder artboards or hide navigation buttons in shared prototype

                              When sharing with a less tech-savvy client, they see the arrows and automatically go to click through like a PDF reader. It would be good to have a way to either change the order of the pages for that view (you can't always guarantee that the order the artboards are built in will be the order they appear in the user journey) or the ability to hide them in the share settings.

                              hide/turn off "slide" feature on prototype

                              • Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour

                                Most of modern apps have some custom behaviour - for example

                                In user profile, you see big profile picture, but when you scroll down to see user posts - picture gets smaller and moves to the corner.

                                Would be cool to be able to treat scroll position as kind of keyframes timeline, where you can modify styles of some elements and tween them depending on how much some view is scrolled.

                                Some tools have kind of similar option - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRHuAq4PqQo - check first 30 secs.

                                • [shortcut] Option + shift + arrow keys to duplicate objects

                                  1. Similar to the rest of the creative suite, the ability to click on an object (text or object) and holding down option + moving that object with arrow keys (while also holding down shift) to duplicate the object.

                                  2. Quickest and most painless path to duplicating objects over click + copy + paste imho.

                                  • Drop shadow binds to border

                                    When adding a drop shadow to an object it binds to the border.

                                    This means that if an object does not have a border or a fill (in the instance where you would want to create a glass like effect it is not possible)

                                    We have tested and verified that this is counter to how the browsers behave - this is the test example we used:

                                    • Arrow navigation on the online shared prototype

                                      I created a link, but when I was presenting, I realized that exported version can't be navigated using keyboard-arrows.

                                        • XD integrated with AEM

                                          Integration of XD with AEM will be very convenient to prototype and bring the application to life at the same place.
