  1. Scroll to Anchor Link Target

    The anchor link that target the specific part of the page. This is the significant user experience on web usability where user can "back to top" or can navigate (i.e. from menu bar) to the specific sessions without the need to scroll through entire pages.

  2. Dark Interface (overall UI including side panels)

    The option for a darker interface like Photoshop and Illustrator would be great, especially when working at night.

  3. Add multiple states inside symbols / smart objects / components

    What do you think about something like this:

    Design mode while smart-object selected can show one more tab at app header with smart-object name. In the appearance panel at the right adds some fields while smart object is selected.

    To edit smart-object you should open tab with it and work as before, except that artboards name is the name for different state

    And You can place another smart object in a smart object ;)

  4. 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

  6. Fonts preview

    When you choose font for text, would be good to have some preview about how it'll look.

  7. Vertical Alignment of text in text box

    Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.

  9. Wifi connectivity for XD app (not connecting only by USB cable)

    Instead of being able to connect only by a USB cable, the ability to connect via wifi. Any roadmap for this would be useful to know.

  10. Collaboration on same document (real-time OR check-in / check-out model)

    I would love to be able to work with my design team at the same time on the same file on different computers and instantly see changes made by someone else in realtime.
    Currently, we use Google Drawings to create wireframes because it allows us all to work in the same file at the same time and to instantly see changes made.

  11. Add Interactive Native Widgets/Controls to Prototypes

    Support for native device functions (e.g. Cordova).

    Example dropdown selection, media players, maps, etc.

    This would increase the demo's effectiveness and allow for a more real-world prototype.

  12. 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 !!

    While XD doesn’t yet have this feature to save gradients in the color picker popup’s swatches, you do have several other options today:

    - Store gradients in the Assets panel swatches: open the Assets panel on the left side (View > Assets), and click the “+” next to Colors. Then select any other object and click the gradient swatch to apply it to that object.

    - Copy gradient fills between objects: use regular Copy on the source object, then select the destination object and choose Paste Appearance.

  13. Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

    I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

  15. Show all available screens to navigate in shared prototype (map / overview of all artboards)

    I would like for there to be a way to display all available screens in the prototype. Currently the web view is good for presenting but not good for users who are not clear on what the flow is. Providing a way to jump around these screens would be incredibly helpful.

    We are happy to inform you that we are considering to provide a thumbnail view that would display thumbnail images of all the artboards present in a shared prototype link, along with its name.

    You can then click on any of those artboards and jump to it directly.

    Stay tuned for more updates!

  16. 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.

  17. Repeat Grid: different SVG images in each grid cell

    Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
    My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.

    It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).

    Thank you.

  18. Multiple sharing links for different subsets of same file

    I´m designing for several screens at once and would like to be able to create separate links for the different screens. Eg one for desktop, one for tablet and one for phone. So that I easily can work on all the screens at once and don't have to change files.

    As a workaround for this featire you can make your home artboard an “index” page which links to the different views/subsets of your design. When you share your design and visit the URL you can click through to the real home artboards and copy the URL (each artboard has it’s own URL on the shared link). You can then share these URLs to link people to a subset of your design.

    We hope to be able to formalize this feature in the future.

  19. Option to capture mic audio in record mode

    I've started using XD in office for wireframing live projects.

    Now when I record the prototype video, I often need to narrate what's going on - esp if it's a WIP. This would help to kick-off future conversations with the client in the right direction.

    Hence a record 'mic audio' option in XD would be extremely useful.

  20. Clear all prototype wires

    I would like to be able to clear all prototype wires similar to how the clear all guides option works in other Adobe products.
