  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • Responsive artboards / adaptive layout constraints for resizing

          Similar to Edge Reflow, it would be great to have the ability to prototype responsive design ideas with a fluid, flexible canvas. Web designers need a good tool for this there really isn't anything out there to test out responsive design solutions.

            Hi there,

            We are actively working on adaptive/responsive design features in XD. Stay tuned for more updates, we hope to get it in your hands soon :)

          • 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.

                Hi there,

                We have begun work on dotted/dashed lines, as well as other stroke enhancements. Stay tuned, and can’t wait to get this feature in your hands.

                Cheers,

              • 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.”

                  -Elaine

                • Image cropping / repositioning within shape mask (after dragging bitmap into a shape)

                  Provide the ability to reposition/move images within masks.

                  If you make a mask via Object > Mask With Shape, then you can double-click into it to reposition the image (or other content) within the mask.

                  However, if you drag an image file onto a shape, it gets masked by the shape and you CANNOT reposition the image or adjust the cropping. It is auto-cropped to fill the shape when you resize it, but you don't currently get full control of the cropping.

                    Hi there,

                    We understand just how frustrating this is when working with images that can’t be repositioned, and have begun to work on this feature. We can’t wait to get it in your hands soon!

                  • 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!

                      -Elaine

                    • 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!

                      • Static / Fixed objects between transitions

                        When I swipe between screens I do not want the header and footer bar to slide with the transition, just the content area. Please create a function for this

                        • Support math operators in number fields

                          It will be nice I can use that 200/2 = 100 directly in a numbered field just like any other Adobe App. (/ and - and * and +)

                          • Scale/resize symbols individually

                            I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

                            Please let us scale the symbols

                            • Flip vertical/horizontal

                              I am trying to create icons in XD and want to make sure they are symetrical but there is no flip option in the edit menu.

                              I tried to use the width, height and coordinates to do this but without guides, or the ability to unlock the ratio this does not work either

                              • 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

                                • 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?

                                  • Responsive Design

                                    Would love to see a way to prototype for different screen but not to copy paste and adjust the size - make it like in Indesign that we can link files to different sizes.

                                    Have a tool that can collect the assets and place them together into a different scree.

                                    • 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.

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

                                        • 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…
