      We’ve begun work on bringing Boolean groups to the Windows build! Stay tuned – we’ll let you know when you can work with Boolean groups (aka Pathfinder tools) in Adobe XD for Windows 10.

    • [Windows] Layers panel

      I'd like a contextual layers panel like the one we have on the Mac version of XD.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

                • 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…

                  • name export svg

                    It's cool that we now have the option of exporting SVG files with the february update - But unless I'm blind it does not seem like there is any option to name the file that one wants to export? It would be very nice if it was possible to choose a custom filename like "car.svg" rather than "Path 823.svg" for instance.

                    • 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.

                      • 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?

                            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!

                              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.

                                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.

                                    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!

                                    Support for scrolling artboards in design mode as well as in the Preview window.

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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.
