  1. Select the Btns states like Rolls Over, editing option in Photoshop/Illustrator, adding Personas sections and

    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…

        Wow! Thank you so much for your detailed feedback. UserVoice works best when you file single idea as a single piece of feedback. Could you please separate these out into individual suggestions? Thanks!

      • 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!

        • Some more interactive stuffs

          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

          I…

          • 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).

                Thanks for the feedback! Just in general, UserVoice works best when you only add one idea per submission. Some of the ideas you’ve suggested are already in the database, and only need to be upvoted.

                Hope that helps!

                • Flipping Option(Horizontal, Vertical) and Paragraph to paragraph Line Spacing

                  Image flipping option needed. Because when i flipp some visual , i can not able to rotate negative.means horizontal or vertical. And paragraph to paragraph spacing also good option.

                  • text

                    - Text with list feature, and able to change the bullet style
                    - Allows tabs key in the text
                    - 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

                      • 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.

In the meantime, our common suggestions are available for you to upvote within the system. Please do take a look at existing suggestions and upvote to let us know you’re interested!

                        • 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…

                              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!

                                • XD Feedback: hard to select and group/ungroup and scroll

                                  Here is my feedback from using XD for a day.

                                  1. You can't really figure out how to do anything without reading the tutorial. The main issue is scrolling. Needs to be more intuitive. I nknow scroll bars aren't in vogue, but that would make it possible for people to scroll. Using a large screen external monitor and mouse, you don't have touch and the touchpad isn't as convenient.

                                  2. Selecting elements of compound objects is REALLY HARD. You can either click about 100 times until you get it, or zoom way in, click a smaller number of times, and…

                                    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when each feature request is split up into a separate feedback session, so that others can upvote. We appreciate the confusion, and hope you found that:

                                    1. Mousewheel support for scrolling exists, similar to our other tools
                                    2. Ctrl+Click will direct select objects inside groups
                                    3. Group and ungroup are accessible in the context menu (right click)

                                    Thanks,

                                      Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult for us to split up the feedback into specific feature requests, so it would be great if you could file each one of these separately so that we can address them. That being said, it might be difficult for us to do these things within our iframe, as the commands you’re asking for need to be done in the parent HTML, not in the iframe. (Basically, you’ll need to do it on your side; it’s not something we can do on our side.)

                                    • Symbols in Windows 10

                                      I was very excited when the latest update to XD added the Symbols feature. But I was very disappointed with the functionality of the same. These are a few suggestions I have that I would like to see in the Symbols panel!

                                      1. Organization: There should be a way to name and organize symbols. As f now the symbols are names as 'Symbol 1', 'Symbol 2' , etc,. and their copies come up as 'Symbol 1- 1', Symbol 1- 2', etc. It would be great to be able to name the symbols so that i can see their names in…

                                        Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you separate out each one of your requests instead of lumping them all together. You should also search and upvote for existing ideas that match your own.

                                        I am a constant user of XD and I love and bet on it but I miss a better text tool like Indesign. It should also be able to edit links directly in other CC software, as Indesign does. And I've never been able to use the library to work and export the assets correctly to the developer, that should be easy, to integrate design and development more quickly, as in Sketch APPs or software like webflow. Another point is to think about how to work the microinterinterations and animations of the direct interfaces in XD. And lastly work responsive…

                                          Thanks a ton for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file individual requests instead of all lumped together in one request.

                                          You should definitely search for some of the improvements in the database, as many of them already exist. For instance:

                                          As for your issue with exporting assets, you might want to check out this article I wrote about exporting assets in XD. https://medium.com/thinking-design/protip-exporting-assets-in-adobe-xd-c586996de703
