  1. Generate specs / measurements / style guide for developers

    What definitely needed in the Design community is to ease the design-development delivery-review phase. To unload both of the sides.

    A lot of different platforms, tools, plugins were meant to do that and none of them is fully unloading and simplifying that process.

    PNG Express, Specking, Avocode, Markly, Zeplin, Craft, Marketch etc...

    I believe there is a need in having some specifications delivery service, styleguide generating service.

    Specs:
    + Measuring distance from text line height (because that's how developers do), not font size.
    + Ability to adjust the UI on the go with automatic sepcs changing
    + Ability to select…

      • Paragraph styles

        In order to make global typography changes, it would ber very useful to have paragraph styles as part of the feature set. Bonus: export CSS from these paragraphy styles.

          • Linked Objects / Images

            Option to link objects (or generate smart objects) when pasted from a PSD or AI source to maintain a reference.

            This would provide a simple method for single or multiple object updates (beyond the CC Design Libraries integration)—saving time and ensuring all objects are the most current.

            Example: Revision to a microphone icon via Illustrator, which is used across 20 artboards

            • Underline text

              You can easily make text bold or italic in XD, but not underlined. There should be an Underline style or toggle button for creating designs with links, etc.

                • Responsive artboards / adaptive layout constraints for resizing

                  Similar to Edge Reflow, it would be great to have the ability to prototype responsive design ideas with a fluid, flexible canvas. Web designers need a good tool for this there really isn't anything out there to test out responsive design solutions.

                  • Global Style/Color Edits

                    Provide the ability to change multiple objects/elements within a document and/or across artboards.

                    Example: Ability to increase font size within a button across all artboards (without multi-select)
                    This is similar to increasing font size within a repeatable grid—all increase.

                    Another example: replace/swap a theme color throughout the document.

                    • Fixed elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

                      Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

                      • Display RGBA in the color picker

                        Please add RGBA values to the HEX and HSBA values shown. Most of my CSS color values are now stated in RGBA values (255,255,255,0.5) rather than simple HEX as layouts become more modern and complicated.

                        • Allow multiple users to work on one file

                          Multiple users should be able to work on one file without creating conflicting files. Ideally users could work on different artboards without conflict a la Powerpoint.

                          Users should also be able to see who is currently editing the same file.

                          • Animate individual elements separately (custom animation transitions / microinteractions)

                            Support for simple animation.
                            Example: Show/hide a slide or push menu

                            This would enhance a demo and engage prospects that are familar with common application patterns.

                            • General API for Extensions: Layers, Groups and Elements

                              I would very much like to see at least a general API that gives me access to the full object hierarchy in an XD project - artboards, group, layers, elements and their properties - along the lines of the sketch API current specification

                              • Gradient color swatches

                                Thanks for adding gradients !
                                Right now, we can add colours to our 'favourites' with the + button, could we also save gradients when in the gradient tool?

                                Something really nice too would be to allow the pipette to pick the gradient of a shape/artboard.

                                These too would save a lot of time !!

                                  We often send clients JPGs to show them the design, would be good to be able to export individual/all artboards (like in illustrator).

                                    We need export as a Psd or export multiple formats or use Extract to transfer layout objects CSS to Dreamweaver like creative cloud extract.

                                      • Flip vertical/horizontal

                                        I am trying to create icons in XD and want to make sure they are symetrical but there is no flip option in the edit menu.

                                        I tried to use the width, height and coordinates to do this but without guides, or the ability to unlock the ratio this does not work either
