      We’re pleased to announce that the iPhone X artboard is now available in the November release of Adobe XD. If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of the application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you’re looking for improvements on this feature, please do file a new request!

    • Eyedropper tool for the assets panel

      When creating colors in the Asset panel, it would be nice to use the color picker tool and not have to have the Hex value handy. Not all mock-ups are color sensitive so this would make a nice quality of life addition.

      • Recenter and zoom to an artboard from the artboard list

        I want XD to recenter and zoom to an artboard that I select from the artboard list.

        Why is this valuable to you?
        I currently spend a lot of energy manually zooming and panning between artboards. What if we simplify and streamline all this activity to just a couple of clicks?

              As multiple people have mentioned, undo is one of those critical features that we’ve had in the product since the first day. On Windows, you can right-click on the canvas to get the context menu and undo, or you can Ctrl+Z.

              Hope that helps.

            • MS Windows Priority!

              Us windows (10) user are really badly stuck for a good prototyping tool. It is awful to see, once again, that windows users of XD are trailing Mac users in terms of functionality!

              Sketchapp have ignored Windows users, which IMHO is going to be the eventual cause of their demise as most design/dev teams use a mix of OSs in house.

              I looked at Adobe XD last year and again over the past day. Windows users are still being treated as second class users to Mac users.

              Please speed up or Windows development! Features of both OSs should be released…

                Hi, all-

                Apologies for the delay, but we are definitely treating Windows as a first class citizen in the XD ecosystem. With the exception of some UWP platform limitations (specifically: preview recording, USB tethered mobile preview, and some font stuff), we’re at feature alignment and have committed to releasing all new features on Mac and Windows. We’re also investing in bringing some Windows-only features in the future, so stay tuned for that!

                I’m marking this feature as closed.

                -Elaine

              • Display wireframe dimensions and colors for developer handoff

                It would be extremely valuable to have a dimension view or developer view where the size and color code for each element is visible. All text or other distractions would be hidden and the user would have the option to reorganize the auto populated layout of dimensions. This feature would definitely put Adobe XD way ahead of any competitor.

                There are more variables to consider, but this is an great idea to build off of.

                Cheers!

                • "Guideline Mode" (Design Guidelines)

                  Add a "Guideline Mode" in addition to the prototype mode and design mode. This would be a content area of speficications like color schemes, used fonts, symbols and other visuals etc. It would be good to have a basic content template for the most typical things like color palette etc. but make it also possible to add custom content.

                  This functionality would help to work on the design in teams and to communicate the design fundamentals to customer and developers.

                  • Copy and Paste top of list is aggravating

                    It's very annoying anytime I copy/paste an item within a group or not, that it pastes it into the top of that group in my panel. Instead of right above the item I have selected. If I want to clean up my panel I have to constantly move my items down where I want them after pasting.

                    • Rough Wireframe Toolkit

                      It would be great to have a 'sketch' UI toolkit (similar visually to Balsamiq), to allow for creating a wireframe with a focus on the content and workflows, rather than on execution of design and style (or the ability to toggle between the 2).

                      • Individual styling of word in a paragraph for Windows

                        I think this already existed in macOS version. The idea is you can style (color, fontsize, etc.) a certain word or character in a line for sentence (one text group). This is, for me, one of the most useful features in design.

                              I'd like to have a key binding that would not snap to grid while I'm trying to position an item. The location I need might be close to a grid line, so it would automatically snap to it, but I'd need it to be juuuuust off.

                                • Disable hotspots for prototypes

                                  For usability tests, I want to disable/hide the hotspots when you click. The hotspots make the tests too easy for the user.

                                  The main reason I changed to Adobe XD is that I can do everything with just one tool. Now I have to use InVision/Marvel again for the usability tests because I can't disable the hotspots.

                                  • [Windows] 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.

                                    • Resize handles disappear when object is still pretty large (Windows only)

                                      When an object is very small on screen -- either due to zooming out, or just because it's small -- XD hides some resize handles to prevent them from jumbling all together.

                                      On Mac, handles don't disappear until they're really overlapping. At 100% zoom, you can make a square as small as 16x16 and still see all eight handles (and it'll still give you four handles all the way down to 8x8).

                                      On Windows however, you can only go down to 64x64 before handles start vanishing. And it'll drop from 4 handles to 1 at any size below 32x32.

                                      This…

                                        Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch, In this way helps us to create an screen easily doing drag and drop.

                                          We’ve been working with a variety of partners to provide more robust UI kits for you to use, including menu elements. Apple, Google, and Microsoft have all provided a number of different UI kits with sticker sheet elements to get you started.

                                          Note that you can also create new artboards by simply switching to the artboard tool and clicking.

                                          Please do feel free to file a new story if you’d like to see additional features.

                                          Thanks,

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