  1. 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.

        Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file one ticket per request, and you have four great ones here. All of them are already in the database and can be upvoted:

      • Prototype features

        New functions for the prototype mode.

        I have had a lot of trouble convincing clients and within the development team how the screens work, which I believe will be solved with some features initially.

        - Anchor Point
        Select the object that will start the action and select a target object, that is, you can create animation inside an artboard.

        - Add Elements
        When you perform the action on a source object, you can insert a new element in a selected area.

        - Change states
        Clicking on the source object can change a color or background image of some other element

        • Some Ideas

          I've been using this for a while now and I find it absolutely great! However there's a few things I wish it could do.

          1) Having a radial style gradient.

          2) Saving Gradients the same way colors are saved.

          3) Locking an image in the background and having the content scroll over it.

          4) Floating Menu's during prototype mode. So that the main header can scroll along with the page.

          Thank you for this great app. Keep up the good work

            It is very necessary to add:
            - dotted line
            - uppercase letter
            - can change the border line to outside and inside
            - moving image inside the frame. Something like a clipping mask

              Hello, I am a designer and really like working with Adobe XD.

              I hope that in the future, there will be the option to add/change states to the icons - ex. to create buttons that change color/size when the mouse hovers over/rolls over before clicking and going to another screen. It wouyld also be helpful an option where the image can be edited in Photoshop/Illustrator, saved and updated in XD, like Smart-objects work between Photoshop and Illustrator.

              Finally, to have a section dedicated to the creation of Personas and Users Journeys would be a great adds-on, since many prototyping software…

              • Assets Features

                I love how easy the new Assets panel is, and the following features could make it even better:

                1- Double click an asset, such as a color or font, to edit it.
                2- Drag assets to sort them.
                3- Selecting an item from an dartboard highlights its color and/or font.
                4- For the tooltips to appear instantly when hovering over an asset in the asset window. For example, when hovering over a color to instantly display its hex code. I currently have to hover over an asset and wait for the tooltip to appear so I can see if it…

                • I really want to use XD, but I want it to perform like InDesign.

                  I really want to use XD, but I want it to act and perform like a layout program (InDesign). Layers, guides, text frame options, image frames etc. It needs ALL the basic functionality of InDesign. I keep wanting to go back to InDesign to lay-out/design concepts b/c basic things like guides and layers don't exist.

                    Thanks for your feedback! We have a lot of other InDesign fans as well, and they’ve already seeded our database with suggestions that are based on their favorite features. I’d suggest that you search in the XD UserVoice and upvote your favorite features!

                    By the way, we do have a layers panel that you can play with. Hit Cmd+Y to launch the contextual layers panel and check it out!

                    Hi XD Team,

                    I like the XD app for my mac it's so intuitive.

                    I'ld like to see and use few stuffs out from my head.

                    Here is my quick description.

                    - Fixing one section for e.g., stick the top bar or bottom bar of mobile UI --> scroll the screen to - n - fro.
                    - Grouping few section like previous point ^
                    - pop up screens - OS specific
                    - sliding windows
                    - adding some music loops with editing options (LoL) exporting as presentation.
                    - remote connections as in PS - previewing with out connecting through cable

                    • settings

                      I use the Windows version so idk how far the Mac version is in this, but where is "Settings"?! I'm used to customizing software I use so it perfectly match my needs. Here I can't even change keybindings, color theme, defaults, etc..
                      I think this is really important feature - every software should have settings.

                      • Master of text: padding styles, margin styles, paragraph styles, character styles.

                        Padding style: can be applied to a shape. Then using text tool click the shape and type. The padding is maintained on resizing the object (unless the value is changed in the padding style).

                        Margin style: works like the space before, left, right or after in InDesign. Can be applied to any object or text block.

                        Paragraph styles and Character styles (useful for links) work in the same way as Indesign (perhaps using web terminology, % values, rems).

                              - Lines spacing should just be priority, e.g beside font size, location is not intuitive enough
                              - Able to set global font colour and style, Eg. H1, H2, body

                                • Support for "Fill" in transparent images (Windows)

                                  Downloading transparent icons and then importing them to Photoshop just to change the color of it is just annoying.Especially when you have 4 gigs of ram.

                                  Adobe pls.

                                    As we requested information three months ago and never received a response, I’m marking this request as inactive. If you’re still interested in seeing this in Adobe XD, please do file a new request.

                                    Thanks,

                                  • awsome for new users! But you should add some more features like some of them in sketch>

                                    While prototyping more virtual options would have worked great. But again this is very good platform for learners or beginers.

                                    • Features That Will Really Improve The Workflow

                                      So, I have been using XD since the start of this app and I really enjoy it, but as I was previously using Sketch app and when I shifted to XD. I usually get stuck in doing many things. Below is the list of features that XD should add:

                                      1. Text Gradients
                                      Adding text gradients is very necessary as sometime we want to give a 3D look to our text using gradients and it is very difficult to do it in XD. I think it would be good to have a same dropdown as for shapes.

                                      2. Multiple Fills
                                      That…

                                        Thanks a ton for your feedback! We really appreciate the thoughtfulness you’ve put into this post. UserVoice works best if you split your ideas up (for merging and upvoting), so we’d appreciate it if you could upvote existing stories or file new ones.

                                        As it is, a number of your suggestions already exist in the database. For instance:

                                        • Updates have been in the pipeline too long, specifically grids and interactions

                                          We have been requesting these two basic things from the beginning, yet still we wait.

                                          1) Layout grids, and ability to align them with css frameworks
                                          2) Interactions, anything more than a slideshow would be great!

                                            Both of these are on our radar and are actively being worked on. I’m guessing you already upvoted both of them, so you’ll know that we’ve marked Layout Grids as started. Improved interactivity is also something I’m personally working on, so there’s definitely movement in the area as well! That’s a little more complex, but we’re making progress!
