      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!

      • 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.

        • 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.

              We’ve tried to keep it under wraps, but we’re currently working on the early steps of getting this feature working. Please be patient with us and be on the lookout for some upcoming research opportunities!

              Thanks,

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • 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?

                          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!

                          • InDesign integration

                            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…

                            • Import all SVG exported from Illustrator, for compatibility

                              In V1, it's clear that support for AI and PS files will be minimal. But please support SVG files. As of now, SVG files don't even appear and if they do, only parts of them are seen.

                              With SVG support, I can export all my AI artwork to SVG and import that into XD without losing any styles. This will be a great temporary fix while you work on supporting AI files. Please make this happen for V1.

                                  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.

                                    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.

                                    transition presets

                                    • 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.

                                        • Paste in viewport

                                          When pasting an object into an artboard, by default it is pasted "in place" (i.e. at the same position as the artboard it was copied from). In most instances, this is very useful. However, in some cases it's not the desired behaviour. Particularly when working while zoomed into large artboards, it can be hard to find the pasted object.

                                          It would be useful to have a modifer key / alternative shortcut for pasting the contents of the clipboard into the centre of the current viewport (i.e. the default paste behaviour in other CS apps). This would be in line with…
