  1. Better svg export

    Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
    the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

    It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

    A cleaner svg would…

      Hi,

      The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

      Cheers,
      M.

    • Revision Control

      It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

      • Share prototype with customers so that they can view on their mobile devices

        First of all: I LOVE XD! Thanks for this great software!

        My issue is, that sharing the prototype on the web is nice, but our customers request to see the prototype on their mobile devices - but not with the online link, because they can't see the complete screen without scrolling and that looks not like an app more than a webpage.

        Now the only possibility is to download the xd app, login or register and connect the mobile device with the computer, where the file is open. How can our customer see and test the prototype in the same…

        • Pen and touch support in windows 10

          Currently it's not possible at all to work with Experience Design using touch or pen input on Windows 10. Please improve that.

            From our release blog post

            > We have ambitious plans to offer full support for touch devices and pen input in XD. While we have made progress in this area, we are not ready yet to make those capabilities available in our public beta releases. Once we’ve delivered the core XD feature set for designing, prototyping and sharing user experiences, then we’ll enable touch and pen features for the Microsoft Surface family of products and other touch-enabled devices.

          • Swap locations of "update link" and "create new link"

            Share link Again button placement feels like it should switch place with Update link..

            BECAUSE:
            I usually send out links to the team/clients, and when I want to update the Link (Share Again) then right after clicking the buttons change to "Update Link" or "Create New Link" The one beneath the mouse cursor is Create New, and that really is a mess since its really easy to missclick that button. I generally always just want to Update my prototype since the link is already out there.. Not have a chance to missclick the New link and have to send a…

            • 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.

                • Change green checkmark to another icon when the prototype falls out of date

                  Confusing: Sharing popup shows green checkmark even when shared prototype is out of date
                  Loving the product folks, just a quick suggestion. Not really a bug.. more of a UX issue. I was a little thrown off when my prototype wasn’t updating even though the green check (up to date?) was there. The copy with ‘share again’ feels wrong to me when you can share again OR update the app.

                  • 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.

                    • More default animations and easings

                      It would be great with a few more features/interactive animations when you link the pages. More easing options. I guess what I'm saying I would like to have more animations and effects based on what we have on websites and apps to this date.

                      transition presets

                      • Maintain page scroll position when moving between screens

                        When previewing prototype need to be able to maintain page scroll position between screens to support interaction and animation behaviours (in Preview).

                        • Show all available screens to navigate in shared prototype

                          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.

                              • Copy from XD & paste into Illustrator (or Photoshop)

                                For any given vector pieces, to be able to copy from XD and cut to illustrator. We can do it in the other way for now, but it would be great if it could work the other way too.

                                To rework an icon for example, or trick an object with more advanced tools like in illustrator. Why ? It's faster than to export to svg and export it back again. It would also allow to keep your objects scaled the same way.

                                  When Creative Cloud support lands, you would be able to save assets to your CC Library (e.g. vectors, bitmaps), and open them in different tools (e.g. vectors in Illustrator, bitmaps in Photoshop), then save it back to your Library, updating all instances where they’re being used. Would that help your use case?

                                  I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

                                  I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.

                                  • Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)

                                    This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.

                                      Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

                                      In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

                                      If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

                                    • Scrollable Area (not scrolling whole artboard)

                                      Define a scrollable area within an artboard

                                      This provides real-world app use cases, such as a table, slideshow, or iOS dropdown lists.

                                      • Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

                                        It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

                                        • Auto Save (in case of system crash)

                                          Auto save take away the worry of saving and losing data.

                                            We’re actively working on an auto save feature for XD, but it’s a hugely complicated feature that will take some time to deliver. Please do save often in the interim!
