  1. CONVERT TO CODE

    We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.

      Hi, all-

      “Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.

    • Can't publish prototypes that don't contain interaction?

      I just updated my XD to 2.0 (2.0.32.10). I'm using a mid-15 MBPr. I just realized this morning when I tried to get a sharing link of the prototype for my colleague that XD now does not allow me to generate a sharing link because the home artboard doesn't contain any interaction.
      Somehow I can understand the design logic behind this, but still there's something that doesn't add up. If XD are preventing prototypes that contain no interaction to be published and get their sharing links, then what's the Previous Page / Next Page buttons being in the online preview…

        • 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?

          • Option to select a particular layer

            Well, I'm using Adobe Xd for a week. Previously worked on Photoshop. I've started loving xD.

            But I am facing difficulties when selecting a layer which is under another layer.

            It's really annoying always "hide" the first layer then select the 2nd/3rd layer. After that finding that "Hide" layer to unhide.

            Photoshop has an option for that. Please see attached.
            Thanks :)

            • Change Fonts in Bulk - Find Type/Change All

              Quick font replacement is one my top needs in Illustrator, and thought it would be implemented in XD by now.

              In illustrator, I tend to have few artboards and that means fewer text strings. I could, replace fonts manually most of the time but it is awesome to have the Find Type tool.

              If this feature has a more appropriate place in the world, it is in XD because of the number of artboards UI design requires.

              • 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 :)

                  • Pin objects/groups to top of artboard layer order

                    As you go through a design, objects are created and sequentially stacked on top of each other. This affects Z index and view.

                    Using things like self created grid/layout systems or objects that are required to stay at the top of the z index get obscure and I spend an awful lot of time reorganizing my layers. Too much time.

                    To save time - having the ability to "pin" the layer order of groups or objects would be amazing. Additionally, defining group/object stacking order by "pinnable" alphanumeric identification would be terrific. example:

                    Top Layer — Pin1
                    Second to — Pin2 …

                    • move artboards with pasted content

                      I noticed that if I pasted in content from another source (in this case, Sketch), everything imports properly but if I try to move the ARTBOARD it merely stays in place and the pasted content moves. However, if I select 2+ artboards, no problem.

                      This may just be a bug.

                        • Get CC notification on comments

                          It would be great to have a notification in the CC when a comment is made on the prototype. Bonus points for a blip on the same comment when opening prototype!

                          • Graphic tab/pen compatibility

                            Currently while having PS or illustrator open while working with XD it can be a little annoying when jumping back into XD you have to down the graphic pen and switch to mouse pad. I use my graphics tab more and more and being able to use it in XD with such things like the pen tool would really help UX imo

                            • textstyles

                              I'd like to start using Adobe Xd more, but whats really holding me back ist that there are no textstyle options. It'd be really cool and intuitive if they would have the same look and feel as in the other adobe Programs. This is really something I'm missing, and a dealbreaker for me. Especially if I want to design a Website with more that 2 or even just 1 page.

                                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…

                                  • 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.

                                        I’m afraid I don’t quite understand what you’re asking. Are you saying in repeat grid cells? You can currently create a rectangle to serve as your background for your repeat grid. You can change the opacity of any asset (and any repeat grid, for that matter) using the property inspector.

                                        Can you please clarify what you’re looking for?

                                        Thanks,

                                        -Elaine

                                        Key command to go directly to «Target» dialog box.

                                        I want to be able to launch the interaction pop up after selecting an object with a keyboard shortcut.

                                          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!
                                          In short, my request is:
                                          1)…
