  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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

              • 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

                  • 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.

                    • 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?

                      • Copy CSS attributes

                        As Sketch already do... Possibility to copy css attributes by right clic (like gradient attributes,...) and paste it into a code editor.

                        • 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

                              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…

                              • 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.

                                • Spacing Before or After Paragraphs

                                  Would love to have the ability to adjust the spacing before or after a paragraph as InDesign and Photoshop. Right now I can change the line height, but there needs to be another setting to adjust spacing between paragraph blocks.

                                  • View and share design prototypes at actual size

                                    The full-screen feature is nice but I need to be able to show clients what my designs will look like at actual size on the web. The prototypes need to be displayed at the size they are designed at. This is the one feature that would justify me switching from using InVision for my prototyping.

                                      In the release today, if you go into full screen mode, your prototype is now sized to actual size. So, designs will scroll automatically depending on browser size.

                                      In the future, we plan to allow you to choose your scaling option, but, this is the first step towards that.

                                      There should really be a tool to crop photos by selection (maybe by double clicking on it and using the control points) but it took me a while just to figure out that i have to mask by shape just to crop a photo.

                                        We’ve begun working on an easier way to crop your images without using an image mask and will be releasing this in an upcoming release!

                                        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…

                                        • Better svg export

                                          Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
                                          the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

                                          It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

                                          A cleaner svg would…

                                            Hi,

                                            The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

                                            Cheers,
                                            M.
