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.1,877 votes
The option for a darker interface like Photoshop and Illustrator would be great, especially when working at night.1,622 votes
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 artboards1,136 votes
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 ;)1,056 votes
Hebrew & Arabic language support for all those who need to make RTL prototypes.864 votes
We are planning for more robust text support for RTL fonts in the future.
It would be awesome to have blending modes in the sidebar.788 votes
When you choose font for text, would be good to have some preview about how it'll look.669 votes
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.498 votes
We need export as a Psd or export multiple formats or use Extract to transfer layout objects CSS to Dreamweaver like creative cloud extract.487 votes
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.468 votes
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.425 votes
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.

As we shared at MAX this year, we’re planning on collaborative workflows for the future. Please check out this recording of our presentation, starting at about minute 27:15 for a vision of how we’re going to handle collaboration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dn_9u1qtQ8s&t=1412s
We’d love your feedback on the concept!
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.340 votes
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 !!338 votes
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.
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.261 votes
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.191 votes
Add multiple fills, borders and shadows on top of each other190 votes
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.179 votes
As we mentioned at MAX last November, we’re working on allowing multiple people to work on one file. Stay tuned for more information!
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.166 votes
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.155 votes
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.
