    • More slide transitions

      Few more nice slide transitions wouldn't kill anyone, would it :)

      • Responsive Design

        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.

        • 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 :)

          • Export whole artboards (or entire project) as HTML

            It would be great to Export Prototypes as pure HTML Projects. I am working a lot on Multiscreen apps, where I mostly use Serveal Webcontainers Running on several Screens, to develop those Applications.

            • Copy vector art from Illustrator

              I can't find this exact feature request so I thought I would request it here. Is it possible to build XD so that any Adobe Illustrator artwork can be pasted into it?

              Photoshop has this ability so I'm continuing to use Photoshop for app design, however, Sketch has some nice features over Photoshop but it's inability to accept even the most simple compound shapes from Illustrator make it virtually unusable for serious design. If preventing users from switching permanently to Sketch is on Adobe's radar, I think y'all should get Illustrator objects compatibility going. It'll be the clincher to ensure…

                Hi, all-

                I’m trying to consolidate a number of the Illustrator issues into one list to work against, as the various requests seem to be all over the forum. I’ve started with James’ specific list below, and would like to hear back as to what other specific features are not importing correctly from Illustrator 2017.

                • Pixel dimensions not aligning
                • Support for dotted lines
                • Support for rounded stroke
                • Text is broken up into individual lines

                Are there additional things you’ve hit that you’d like us to address?

                -Elaine

              • UI kit interaction and auto sync of shared library instances

                Is it possible to add interaction to a UI kit elements and when we use that UI Kit it should retain that interaction as in instance. Also when a UI kit is updated by a designer it should automatically update all the all the related xd files to be in sync of same asset libraries.

                Interactions could be a slider, progress bar, movement of a form element etc

                  I think there are two separate issues in this story. The first has to do with copying interactions from a UI kit, which will be covered when we copy interactions:
                  https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13041930

                  The second question is probably an issue for Creative Cloud libraries: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12930321

                  I’m thinking that I should merge this story with the first one (copying interactions). If I don’t hear objections in about a month, I’ll go ahead and do that.

                  Thanks,

                • Automatic add a mask when importing an image (like InDesign)

                  At the moment I have to draw a rectangle to do a mask (to crop an image). At the moment I have to mask 90% of the imported images to visualize the detail of the image I later will do in Photoshop. It would save so much time if image-importing is like in InDesign: I automatically have the small boxes at the edges to crop the image! Look at the attached files!

                    You can currently drag any image into an object to do an image fill, which will automatically resize your object to fill the shape that you have drawn. Unfortunately, this means that you can’t move the object in the mask afterward, but it seems like this would actually meet your needs based on the screen shots you’ve shared.

                    Let me know if this won’t work for you.

                    Thanks,

                  • advanced artboard focus features

                    With just a keyboard and mouse the way to switch between artboard focus is very clumsy (alt+ scollwheel on mouse). I took me ages to figure this navigational feature out to begin with. And haven't found another way to manipulate the canvas (without touchpad or trackpad). Would be great to either have scroll bars on the canvas or short cuts to switch artboard focus:

                    Suggestions:
                    - Scroll bars on canvas
                    - Cmd-Arrow - to switch focus to the nearest artboard in that direction

                    The Cmd-scroll wheel just doesn't work and slows down workflow considerably.

                    Kind regards,

                      As Randy mentioned in a separate comment, you can hold down the Space bar to engage the hand tool, which will engage the Pan hand tool. You can also launch the Layers panel (Cmd+Y) to be able to select your artboards.

                      • InDesign Workflow – linked files in XD

                        For the design I use InDesign as InDesign is much more powerful as XD. I export my Designs as PNG and import those PNGs in XD to create linked artboards for customer presentations.

                        It would be very much needed to have extern links (as in InDesign) pointing to those PNGs. Each time I update my Design in InDesign and export automated all PNGs all screens in XD would also be updated. I conceptualize webprojects with more than 200+ screens and this would speed up prototyping tremendously.

                        Anyway XD rules – really like it – just miss this killer feature!

                          Okay, so I’m trying to understand here. By looking up documentation, I see that you can place images in your file and link them to an image on your file system, so not embedding them in the file. (I’m assuming you’re not talking about inserting links to images on the Internet via URLs.) When the document opens, it loads up the image and places it in. In some apps, updating the file on the file system will update the image automatically without any intervention, and in other apps, changing it on the file system won’t update until you either manually refresh or relaunch the app.

                          This scenario is what I was defining as “dynamic linking.” Smart Objects (as I’m defining them in my head) are elements that are in a CC file format (like Photoshop or Illustrator). Am I misunderstanding your request for external links?

                          Thanks,

                          -Elaine

                          It would be nice to see (where you select the font-familie) what font-families you already used in your project.

                                    Hi,

                                    I assume you are running XD on Win10. For the moment, for export on Win10, you can change the following information:

                                    • the export folder
                                    • the name of the exported asset (from the Layers panel)

                                    Does this work for you?

                                    Cheers,
                                    M.

                                      You can select another file from the Creative Cloud files by longpressing (holding down a press for a second or two) and launching the “Open File” option. Let us know if you’re still having problems.

                                      I would be happy for a more Android devices examples with different dimensions as much as for iOS devices.

                                        For my team, this would be much better than just a dedicated in-tool comment system for getting feedback as this would make my prototypes more accessible to the whole team and company without the need for me to specifically send the link to select individuals.

                                          Vector assets for iOS are PDFs. Not being able to import existing assets directly sucks.
