  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.

    • Compatibilities & Inputs

      I guess if you guys provide the option of gif/photo zoom pan/video compatible options would be good with few animation options like flips and so, i felt XD is very good for the people who want to present the client ideas in better way and presentable. this few requests gets live in software would be more good. and one more major requirement is the tab options as each documents opens up in different window. or else should be a option where in a single document only we can present all three platform compatible option like desktop/mobile/tab.

      will be waiting for…

        Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one feature request per ticket. However, all of these suggestions are already in the database, just waiting for your upvote.

        You can search for the ones in your comment in the features database. Thanks!

        3. Be able to create input files and allow viwer to click and input variate like password.
        3. It will be greate to create self animate image in the prototype. Event more something like icon animation (ex. spinner, progreess bar...)

        • A few important Requests...

          • Blend modes, but only a few like multiply and overlay. (don't want a re-run of photoshop)
          • Text underline (basic formatting)
          • Flip Horizontal / Vertical
          • Grid system (960 or similar)

          Other than this, you guys have made a fantastic piece of software. In the words of Moff from Human Traffic "Nice one Bruva"

          • Artboard Design View Enhancements

            1) when using design mode for multiple artboards, there is no option to print the design overview (ala a Sitemap) for all artboards at once.

            2) Each artboard in our design has a title but they only show "..." in the Design View until you click into the title to edit. Plenty of space to fit the title there.

            • 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

                  • Design

                    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…

                        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.

                          • Improve Text Rendering at zoomed out views

                            Text rendering is very poor at anything other than 100% view.

                            Fitting to screen produces scratchy text lines — much poorer than the way InDesign would handle such a thing.
                            Please improve this.

                                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…

                                  I want to link text objects within a single board, or across multiple boards, so that when I change text in one object all linked text objects update to the new text.

                                  A simple use case:
                                  Update button label "Submit" on all buttons and across all boards to "Save".

                                  • 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!

                                      • create subclass

                                        Hi Guys
                                        I think should be great if when I made a symbol, I can change some properties without change the root symbol, the capacity to choose between create a new symbol or a sub symbol (the sub symbol take the properties no affected in the edition) with this property we can change general properties and affect the children.

                                        thanks
