  1. Have all interactive gestures beside click

    Allow all of the javascript events besides click. One should be able to be mouseover, mouseout, double click, right click, hover, swipe left/right, swipe up/down, pinch/zoom and touch events to work on desktop and mobile (tablet, smartphone) along with watch and smart tv.

    • Lists and Tables

      What I am missing while designing for the web with PS or AI is, the possibility to create lists (ordered or unordered) or tables or other stuff, that is possible with html/css.

        If repeat grid doesn’t suffice, we’d love to hear about what you’d like to see. Please fee free to file another request or upvote one of our suggestions in the database!

      • Interaction features

        Too bad there's no way to really create interactivity in Xd. It's basically a layout editor for static mockups. No CSS support, no typography styling, link styling, no script support, no direct html, java or anything. Can't implement live WOF setups or prototype actual events like drop-down menus, video players, live Google maps demo etc. In Axure you can do all this and more, makes Xd seem like a very limited tool. Great for fast layouts but not really a prototyping tool for autentic scenarios.

          We have some requests in the database already for increased interactivity features (which are on our roadmap!). You can help us prioritize by upvoting the features you need the most. For example:

            It’s been three months since we last asked a question about what type of XML you’re looking for, and what information you’re hoping will be in the XML. I’m closing this story, so please re-file the story with that information!

          • Important features to implement

            Hi Adobe XD,

            I am missing important features such as:

            1. Single object animations (protopie uses this and is extremely nice)

            2. Windows needs to be speed up to use the same amount of features as Mac OS.

            3. Import videos aswell as pictures and being able to control these. (protopie also uses this)

            4. More prototype features when moving from one side to another.

            That is it from now. I will update this frequently when ever I stun upon missing features or something else.

            - Have a nice day

            /Patrick Iversen

            That

              Thanks for your feedback! All of these suggestions are already in the database, and you should upvote them separately. Just in general, it’s better to suggest one idea at a time so that we can merge them in manually.

              Here are the stories you should upvote:

                  Just in general, it’s best to file each idea separately so that we can aggregate and prioritize. As it stands, all of these have already been filed:

                    We’re really looking for individual features you think would make XD a better product. Are there specific features you like from UXPin that you think you’re missing? Please let us know which ones you think are the most useful!

                  • Once a change is made, allow to "update-link" without closing document

                    I am able to open a file and make changes, then update the LINK under sharing.

                    However, after making another change, there is no option to "update" the link. I have to close the file and re-open to update the link with those changes.

                    My suggestion is each time the user clicks the "Share" button, to have the file check and see if any changes have been made. If so, allow to update-link. If no changes are seen, then gray it out until a change is made.

                    • Repeat grid across 2 or more columns

                      I have a 2 column grid of portrait photos, but the images that I select for 'Repeat Grid' only populate one of the columns instead of both columns. It would be really nice if the photos repeated i.e. from left to right, top to bottom.

                        I think this app should be almost the same as muse but an output as an app' not a webbsite and add scratch like blocks like there are in ai2.

                              I am long-time Sketch user. There are some things I love about Sketch that makes it a valuable UI / UX design tool that Adobe XD desperately needs!

                              So far, I am LOVING Adobe XD and plan to continue to experiment with it. However, there are quite a few very necessary features that the XD team NEEDS to implement; especially for web developers.

                              1. RULERS / GUIDES (the grid is nice, but I am very much missing rulers & guides)

                              2. The ability to right click on text, an object made in XD, etc. and copy "CSS attributes."

                              3. Photoshop,…

                              • Depth design

                                As in the design of materials Google, if you could play with the depth of the elements in the interface that is designing the final design be achieved much more consistent and scalable. Utilziar could also be a layer system, the best Photoshop style to keep adding layers and replace them quickly to try different concepts without having to create an entirely new view.

                                  As it’s been three months since we’ve requested more information (and we’ve released layers since then), marking this as action required. Please do file this issue again if you think we still need to do this.

                                  Thanks!

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

                                      When presenting a bigger project with many pages, I had trouble to show them the pages when presenting it online. I think the arrows are a great way to go through page 1 until page x. But when the order is random it does not make any sense to use it, so I used the local XD-file with the stage.

                                      I suggest to take the order for the page by using the position of the upper left corner of a page. I am open to any other possibility that gives me the possibility to control the order of the pages.

                                        I've been using XD for a while now and have been very satisfied with the beta version, although there are 3 top features that would substantially improve the application:

                                        1. Add the ability to pin certain objects to keep them from scrolling with the entire screen. For example, a navigation bar (header) or tab bar (footer) becomes static and does not scroll with the rest of the elements on the screen.

                                        2. Add a few application preferences, i.e.: default font (would be a huge time saver to not have to change to the desired font every time new text elements…

                                          Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file each idea separately, so that people can better upvote (and we can better merge). That being said, most of what you’re interested in has already been filed, so you can simply upvote and add your thoughts.

                                          Hope that helps!

                                            Thanks so much for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you have individual ideas in each request. Many of these features have been requested already (and scrolling artboards just landed in the February release, which was released last week).
