        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.

      • 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!

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Sticky (Fixed) elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

              Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

              • 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?

                • 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.

                      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!

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                            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.

                          • Ability to resolve a comment as done

                            It would be nice to have an option to have a check box to resolve comments & feedback. I think dropbox has this feature now.

                            This would be helpful so that as I'm designing I can every easily see the issues that still need address & those that might need some more attention.

                              This is a workflow we absolutely plan to support. For the first release, we just didn’t end up getting it in. It is in our top 3 priorities with regards to commenting workflows.

                              Allow Adobe XD to save multiple iterations of the same file.

                                  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!

                                    I tried to copy a rasterized image and text from PSD but I can't paste it in XD. also from illustrator, I made a logo the i copy it but I can't paste it in XD. I hope it can't done by just drag and drop like Illustrator to photoshop. So we can get all assets in our workflow in a short time. All hail drag and drop...

                                      • 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…
