      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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

                • Fonts preview

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

                  • Blend Modes

                    It would be awesome to have blending modes in the sidebar.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Save symbols to be used across multiple projects

                            Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • Find Missing Font

                                    When you open a document and it says a font is missing, but tracking down that missing font can be a nightmare.

                                    Often this can occur when moving from one system to another (home to work for example), so doing a find and replace would be very helpful, but just finding the "issue" would be invaluable, because sometimes a type box may not be readily visible to even find it to correct.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Shared Style Guide within members of a team (Object & Text Styles)

                                        Being able to create and share Style Guides to be used within teams. For instance, one member of a team can create a style guide with several object/paragraph/font styles to be shared with team members working on the same project. Within the object style allowing dynamic styles of say, a button, to be shared would be helpful as well.
