  1. Gradients: color stops at the extremes are difficult to select

    Color stops fixed at the extremes are not easily selectable. They seem to be under the bars. Could they be over each bar?

    • Preserve corner radius when resizing

      If I'm drawing a rectangle and setting a corner radius of X, and need to resize that rectangle's width, I'd like to just be able to push one side without having the other side's corner radius "squashing" up.

      Currently it's possible to do so by editing vector points and just selecting the left or right-side point group, but it wastes a bit of time. Thanks :)

      • Toggle show/hide measurements

        Description: A toggle or a hotkey to show/hide the size of the objects and/or the distance between all objects in the project.

        Why: It will make easier to know how to position the objects, to be exact the same as in the XD file, when you develop the app. well it not so hard to calculate it by yourself. XD knows how to show it when you move the objects, the only thing left is just to create a button to show and keep it on visible, but with automatically calculated distance and size of all objects. As a web…

            • Change zoom direction for Option (or Command) + Swipe Up/Down to Zoom

              When zooming in and out via the magic mouse (or trackpad) with the Option+Up (or Down) swipe, I feel like the zoom direction should be reversed.

              Current Behavior as of 07 Sep 2017:
              - Option + Swipe Up = Zoom In
              - Option + Swipe Down = Zoom Out

              Desired Behavior:
              - Option + Swipe Up = Zoom Out
              - Option + Swipe Down = Zoom In

              With natural scroll and direct manipulation of UIs becoming the norm, it feels natural that swiping up on my magic mouse or trackpad is akin to pushing a piece of art away from…

              • Import Artboards from Illustrator

                I would really love in XD to have an option to import artboards from Illustrator. Working in UX with teams who create mockups in Illustrator, it would be a nice option to see a workflow where I can import my artboards so I can then prototype within XD.

                Currently, I copy and paste in from Illustrator, which works, but it doesn't retain data sometimes such as drop shadows, which is an issue for some within the team.

                  Hi,

                  I have some questions on this one:

                  • you want to import all the artboards from AI into artboards in XD?
                  • besides drop shadow, which you can recreate after the art is imported in XD, what other features are not working as expected when doing AI → XD information import?

                  Cheers,
                  M.

                  • Handle large prototypes

                    I don't really have an idea for this, by that I mean a solution. All I have is my current problem: I have a very large prototype with A LOT of artboards, because this feature is quite big. Problem is, managing all the links between all the artboards and different elements is becoming challenging, and it's becoming harder and harder for me to manage what should be linked to what and how.

                    Been trying to Google this a bit, but haven't found much to be honest.

                          • Creative Cloud Files Preview

                            Currently, the only way to get a prototype on a device is to have the file located in a creative cloud folder... which total bonk.

                            I dont WANT to use that service, I have 2 other cloud storage services already, and i hate both of them. I want to be able to store files locally on the device and be able to delete them. I also want to be able to sync (upload/refresh) a file from anywhere on my machine, which means I need to map to it from the app.

                            Rather than change or duplicate my current workflow to…

                              You don’t need to have your file in the Creative Cloud if you’re using XD on a Mac – you should be able to plug in your phone to your computer and get the interactive prototype there in the XD application. Once you have it loaded, you’ll be able to access it offline through a cache. Are you looking for something different?

                                I’m afraid I don’t quite understand what you’re trying to accomplish. Are you hoping to switch from one artboard to another? To be able to tab through your authoring environment? To be able to jump from one artboard to another?

                                Thanks,

                                Color swatch is Great!!... But we have not yet been able to delete the saved colors nor to edit them, leaving several unused colors in the palette.

                                I know a lot of ideas are being sent but I believe that color management deserves attention since when we need to change a color we have to manually change all the elements. My idea is basically to be able to edit a color in the palette and see all the elements flipping to this new color in real time. The gain in productivity would be incredible!

                                    • Link objects for text edits

                                      I want to link text objects within a single board, or across multiple boards, so that when I change text in one object all linked text objects update to the new text.

                                      A simple use case:
                                      Update button label "Submit" on all buttons and across all boards to "Save".

                                        You can currently accomplish this by using a symbol; while we allow text overrides, you can propagate the changed text to all instances by right clicking the symbol and selecting “Update All Symbols.” Hope that helps!

                                        Please do let us know if you are looking for something different!

                                        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.

                                        • Snap to Grid

                                          just like in Illustrator, Set grid, turn it on, any move using mouse or kbd keys will always snap the move to the created grid. very impt for UX design work.

                                            Please let us know how you would like XD’s existing Grid snapping feature to be different.

                                            Or if you’re having trouble just finding the Grid feature in XD, please let us know where you’d expect to find it in the UI.

                                            Thanks!
