Adobe XD: Feature Requests

We love to hear feature requests for Adobe XD from you! UserVoice works best when you file a single idea per submission, but feel free to file as many submissions as you’d like!

Please include:

  1. Description
  2. Why is this valuable to you?
  3. If possible, an image or movie to help us understand what you’re talking about

Request details

  1. Everything !

    Every design options Sketch has (style, gradient, type,etc)
    Every Prototype options InVision has (gestures, links, etc, etc,etc
    Every Animation possibilities Principle has
    Every Animation possibilities InVision/Motion will have
    Every prototype options InVision/Silver flow will have.

    Then you can start using the word "revolutionize"
    Because right now their is no way we can switch to that tool !!

    I don't want to be rude, I'm sure its a great deal of work, but the promise was that it would be a one-time tool and it is far far far from that...

      Thanks again for the honest feedback! If XD does not make sense to you, it’s totally ok to use the tools that make sense to your workflow. Hopefully, we will do a good job, deliver value with our monthly releases, and one day you can start using it for real work.

      If you’d like to track the progress in the different areas you highlighted above, could you please break them down in separate feature requests? It would be more useful for you to get updates on the progress of each feature request, separately.

      Thanks a lot.

    • Smart Symbols + Custom Variables + Custom Layout

      -We need to be able to change content on each symbol.
      such as text in buttons

      -It would be awesome to add any variable such as size or state giving the ability to do responsive elements.

      -another way of describing the above would be if you have a list of items but that same symbol could be turned into a grid. these are all things you can do with CSS we as designers should be able to do it in the design.

      Finally, Margin's and Paddings for elements within other elements This could all be done with these custom variables…

        Hi there! A couple of things about this request:
        - It’s much better to separate requests like these into individual requests, as it allows for others to search and upvote much easier
        - We already have all of these requests in our database! Please upvote the following features:

        Thanks!

      • Fully functional prototype

        Basically create the same features as axure but easier to use. more animation, input fields, dynamic panels, button hover states, etc.

          I think everything listed here is covered by other feature requests already. Please upvote these if they fit:

          In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. Thanks!

        • Export Options

          Need to export high-quality PNGs and JPGs

          For general use propose - saving into PDFs, Keynote, sending in addition to the working prototype

          The PNG export option for the artboard results in an asset that is too poor of quality for general use

            We’d like individual suggestions to be more fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

            Some of the ideas mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

            Some of the other topics here are not yet captured anywhere else. Can you create individual, separate suggestions for these with more details about your needs for each one?

            • Keynote export
            • PNG export poor quality (Can you file a bug with more details about the quality problems you’re seeing? PNGs exported from XD should generally be very high-quality)

            Thanks for your feedback!

          • Text features: Bullets & Numbering, Indenting, Headings

            Text fields should be able to show the basic semantic categories that HTML offers: paragraphs, unordered lists/bullets, ordered lists/numbers, indentations, headings of various levels. These should be able to be controlled via styles. Otherwise, it's challenging to use XD to design any text-heavy web page or app.

              • Windows Features

                Adobe hello, please, the following features that improve the functionality of Adobe XD
                1. First, please, add the FTP function in the export menu. The finished project should be able to send assets to FTP server.
                2. It will be useful to greater choice of visual effects transition elements such as animation hiding bar, push effect. Every element loaded on Website Design should be an additional transition settings.
                3. Please add blur effects, and the possibility of cutting elements, as the case OSX.

                Best reagrds to all Team :)

                  Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one request in each entry, not multiple. As Joan mentioned, we recently shipped blur effects.

                  Please feel free to upvote the following for your other requests:

                • Prototyping + Testing

                  I just gave Adobe XD a try, and I have to say- I think it's a great start toward something I might use, but needs a vast amount of work in order to be a truly valuable tool. As a full-time UX/UI Designer, let me tell you what I'd like to see added to this program:

                  -The ability to, not only navigate form one page to another, but to add custom animations to that navigation (beyond just "push left" "dissolve" etc).

                  -The ability to create animations based on user behavior on a single page. For example, when a user taps…

                    We’re trying to keep the requests granular so that we can more easily aggregate feedback and get your vote counted correctly. I’m seeing four requests in here, some of which are already in the database. Please do upvote and add additional suggestions!

                  • Windows version to be on par with Mac version

                    It would be great if the Widows version was on par with the Mac version instead of half a year behind.

                      We are currently focused on bringing Windows to alignment with Mac and will be moving forward with new innovations afterward. Please do feel free to upvote for specific features you feel are missing so that we can contact you when they’re available!

                    • Improved elements manipulation

                      It is actually a set of improvement ideas:

                      - Bring in the layers, rulers & guides. It'd be extremely helpful to better organize the elements on the working environment.

                      - Further text capabilities: underline? hyphenation? Currently, the paragraph manipulation is rather limited, compared to (say) Illustrator/inDesign.

                      - For Adobe loyal users (like myself) adapting to a radically new set of shortcuts feels weird, and adds extra difficulty to everyday tasks. 'A' for artboards, ’R’ for rectangles and ‘E’ for ellipses makes sense, if you never-ever used illustrator/photoshop/indesign. ’Tab’ for hiding all panels would also be really handy.
                      - What about…

                      • Invision comes with Studio and XD are still sleeping.

                        Guys are you sleeping, there comes a lot of stong competitors and your Update intervalis every two month without nice features and more Bugs. Now Invision will launch Studio and it looks great.
                        I dont know what you do the last two years but the other are right behind.

                          Options for align text vertically, apply color settings to frame such as fill, border and padding like InDesign text frames.

                            hi Adobe-Team!
                            Great tool so far but there is room for more basic tools.
                            - Rulers
                            - move a pic in a frame (better crop tool)
                            - more options at the text-tool (line hight, different text stlyes in one block)
                            - bullet lists (styleable bullets)
                            - stylesheets for different objects, text, ...

                            Thank you for your great work!
                            greetings - chris

                              Hopefully you’ve seen a lot more improvements since we launched our first Preview, especially for typographic features!

                              I’m marking this as action-required, as we’d like for suggestions to be granular so that we can better aggregate them together. Please do upvote or file separate issues. Here are some suggestions:

                            • Have a serious look at Balsamiq

                              Balsamiq has a huge user base, but I think XD has the potential to become the next go-to tool for Prototyping. However, you will need to take a long and serious look at it, and try to at least match 80% of its features, and of course also add the missing ones ;-)

                              - Set up project wide snap to grid, in a similar way as PhotoShop.
                              - Allow font size, colour and style changes within a paragraph.
                              - Create a symbol library for reusable elements.
                              - Create an asset library for imported assets.
                              - Improve the colour picking tool. …

                              • Digital Ad Prototypes

                                I've been looking for a tool like this to prototype digital ads. I love that I can both import from PS and AI and publish to html for sharing. To make digital ads, we'd need:

                                + More animation options
                                + Animated objects
                                + Linked .psd and .ai files (so I can apply features in AI or PS and just use XD for prototyping

                                Not essential but helpful:
                                + For others to be able to comment on the html prototypes

                                Thanks!!
                                Kate

                                  We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

                                  Some of the ideas mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

                                  I will close this request to keep our feature list tidy, but please feel free to file new individual UserVoice suggestions for any other ideas that we may have missed. Thanks for your feedback!

                                • Love it! Please keep going!

                                  I adore this effort! Thank you so much.
                                  Will definitely more features to be able to convert from other software to XDCC. A lot of them mentioned in the feedback from other users, but just to name a few: better text styling, symbols, importing color palettes and assets from illustrator and photoshop, rulers, responsive design (if you do this well, you'll rule over all digital design tools)

                                    Thanks a ton for your feedback! We’ll definitely keep on going. :)

                                    I’m marking this as action-required; we’d love for you to either file these as separate issues inside UserVoice or simply upvote them so that we can aggregate individual feature feedback. This gives us a better view of what our community as a whole would love to see next!

                                    Thanks,

                                  • Add critical features to Mac version then focus on Windows

                                    I see that you've been updating the Windows version to bring it to par with the Mac version. But can you first add some critical features to the Mac version before going full-steam on the Windows?

                                    This way we'll at least have one platform with a strong set of basic features:

                                    a) Non-scrollable elements to fix a header or footer.
                                    b) Show/hide elements so that I can emulate a drop-down menu or a popup window without creating countless Artboards and super complex links.

                                      These features are on our roadmap already, so you should upvote them separately to let us know you’re interested. We’re working on ensuring that we can deliver on both platforms going forward, and there won’t be that much longer to wait until you see new features on Mac.

                                      Starting to say that all the new upgrade are making my life way more easier and more time efficient, what i would really love is to have ability like the one a dos In Design file gives you. For instance, being able to use a 360 degree picture that interact through finger touch. The option to place a keyboard out of the work frame but still be able to link it to a button in order to pop up once a user touch that button. Finally add videos.

                                      • reset round corners

                                        Reset ROUND Corners

                                        once you draw round corners and set that text/picture box, then extend/stretch the box, the corners look absurdly distorted/disproportionate/oblong or no longer round, so XD should allow to reset corner points please! thanks.

                                          I sent out information about three months ago about the difference between path radius and rectangle radius. If you’re looking for an improvement, please do feel free to file another story on this if you’d like to see different behavior.

                                        • Good import for easier migrating to the platform

                                          What is also crucial whenever a new platform comes is a transition to that platform. What if I have 100+ files in .psd or .ai or .sketch and I really like the new XD platform. That's almost 100% chance. For now, no platform have at least average solution for that. I have files in .ai but I want my team to migrate to .psd or .sketch... and it's time consuming mechanistic manual monkey job.

                                          It would be great and ease the transition if XD will have:
                                          – Import to XD from .psd, .ai, .sketch with all the artboards
                                          – Import…

                                            There are several different requests here, and I think a bunch of them are already tracked as their own individual suggestions:

                                            Please upvote any of those that you need, so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.

                                            You can already bring content into XD from all three of these tools by copy-pasting individual elements/layers. Some of the issues listed in the original request here seem to be related to poor fidelity or other problems when importing content this way. If you’re hitting issues like that, could you please file a new UserVoice bug report with as much detail as possible? Ideally, please share screenshots or even an actual AI/PSD/Sketch file that shows the problem.

                                            Thanks!
