  1. 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

    • 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 :)

      • Spell Check

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

        • Hide all panels

          Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
          (like F in Photoshop)

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Set spacing between objects to a specific number of pixels

                Adobe Fireworks style specific alignment in pixels.

                Set spacing vertically or horizontally, by typing a specific number value into the panel.

                • 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.

                  • Access camera on mobile device

                    What if you through the link could acces the camera for apps where photosharing is key ?

                    • Set width and height in percentages

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

                      • 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.

                        • 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…

                            • 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

                              • Ability to view team prototypes

                                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

                                • Consumers of shared prototypes tend to use arrows instead of using interactions

                                  I have been using XD a lot and have been publishing prototypes for developers and stakeholders.

                                  I have found that more often than not they are using the bottom page scroll more than using the clickable links inside the prototype.

                                  This is causing confusion when the workflow isn't linear as they are view the prototype as a slideshow instead of an interactive prototype.

                                  • 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.

                                    • [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.

                                      • Sync Mobile Preview to reflect desktop Preview window or viewport / scroll position

                                        I like the live editing on mobile, that's a good case.

                                        However, I'd like the ability for the mobile device to reflect where I am in my artboard when working in XD on my Mac.

                                        Example -- I'm designing a mobile page and I scroll down to the footer; currently I'd have to manually scroll to the footer on my device to reflect what I'm working on.

                                        Example II -- I'm in prototype mode on my Mac, and I click a button to move to a linked artboard. I'd expect this interaction to be mirrored on the mobile device, but…

                                          Hope to see some basic editing features for mobile app. This could be really helpful for prototyping.
