      We have started working on this.

      The way we are thinking about this is to have 2 fields:
      - Dash
      - Gap
      This enables dashed and dotted lines.

      Let us know if you need more fields. For the reference: AI has 6. Our goal is to keep the things simpler.

    • Artboard Overlays (sidebar / menu / popup) in interactive prototypes

      Hi there, currently the only interaction is a page switch with some easing functions, but when you click a button, it would be nice that you van select a artboard that you can use as a "overlay" over another artboard. So that way you can create lightboxes in your protytype.

      • Override text, color, etc. on a specific instance of a reusable symbol

        Balsamic Symbol :
        Any group of elements than can be named and re-used across multiple artboards.
        Modifications to the symbol are reflected across all artboards that use the symbol.
        It gets better - you can override part of the symbol - text / color / position - for a specific instance.
        Any override does not get affected by changes to the symbol.
        You can reset anytime your instance edits to the symbol state.
        This feature saves an incredible amount of time.

        • Design with Data

          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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                    We’ve begun work on linear gradients in Windows! Unfortunately, this is a complex feature that will take a while to implement. We’ll keep you updated as to when it’s available!

                        • 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.

                          • 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?

                            • Allow interaction wires/links from objects inside a symbol

                              I was so excited about the new symbols feature that I made all of my navbars in a design a symbol. This may be one of the most obvious uses of symbols, since every page will almost always have the same navbar. But you can't connect objects inside a symbol. Therefore, you can't connect nav items, icons, logos in a nav bar.

                              Either allow connects for objects inside symbols, but don't propagate them in all instances, or DO propagate them in all instances. But you HAVE to be able to connect objects inside symbols in prototype mode.

                              Otherwise, we can…

                              • 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!

                                    I have split bunch of other things from this suggestion and made this only about inside/outside/center stroke/border.

                                    So quick update, we have started working on inside/outside/center strokes/borders for any path.

                                  • 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.

                                      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.

                                        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!

                                          Would like XD to work with InDesign in much the same manner that AI and PSD files do. This might be more of a feature request for InDesign however I imagine they both play a role in working together.

                                          Ultimately, in order for a design to be implemented correctly, we need to provide a detailed UI specification for engineering. This specification is often worked on by interaction and visual designers which is part of what makes InDesign an ideal solution for us.

                                          The prototyping functionality is great for communicating how a design could work, but we still need an accompanying…
