  1. Text formatting

    Where are the text formatting tools present on Photoshop and illustrator ?
    - underline
    - all in capital
    - small capital
    - superior/exponent
    - inferior/sign
    - barred

    Even making a copy / paste formatting of the text isn't preserved.

    Waiting for an answer from Adobe XD Team

    Best regards

  2. More slide transitions

    Few more nice slide transitions wouldn't kill anyone, would it :)

    Since this request was first added in UserVoice, we’ve improved the fidelity of our prototyping by introducing auto-animate and a number of different interactions. Since the feedback we’ve received since has been fairly diverse, I’m going to close this one and ask you to upvote or file specific requests in UserVoice with the type of transitions you’re looking for. Thank you!

  3. Options for viewport vs fixed overlay

    Be able to choose between an overlay that appears over the viewport or an overlay that is fixed to a specific position within the artboard. This way we can account for two types of overlays:
    1. Overlays that are persistent like menu navigations
    2. Overlays that are situational like dropdowns within a form

    This particular feature request was filed before we had robust states support, which enables you to create elements that fix to specific content, like flyouts, dropdowns, etc. If you’re still interested in this feature, please do file again with some examples of what you’d like to do with overlays that you don’t want to use component states for. Thanks! https://www.adobe.com/products/xd/learn/design-systems/components/make-menus-components-with-nested-hover-states.html

  4. shadows, shadows, shadows, shadows

    There are already a few requests about fundamental shadow implementation but seem to have gotten no attention. Without these in place it will be difficult to design today's interfaces in XD.

    First: Shadow spread - positive and negative.

    Second: Multiple Shadows on one object.

    Third: Shadow is clipped by object - so that if the object has transparency the shadow isn't showing through it.

    These are basic shadow capabilities on every other program and used daily by interface designers.

    Negative spread is key. It will allow us to create these (see attachment) types of shadows without workarounds and is supported…

  6. Dummy assets

    Would be amazing having some dummy assets already available for use: things like lorem-ipsum placeholder text, content boxes (crossed out), profile picture/user silhouettes and maybe even social media profile icons (FB, Twitter).

  7. 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...

    action-required  ·  Demian Borba responded

    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.

  8. Apple iOS UI Kit: Add keyboard with a return button

    In the Apple iOS UI Kit, there is only the keyboard with the search button in the bottom right, and not a another option for a keyboard with the return button in the bottom right.

  9. Change green checkmark to another icon when the prototype falls out of date

    Confusing: Sharing popup shows green checkmark even when shared prototype is out of date
    Loving the product folks, just a quick suggestion. Not really a bug.. more of a UX issue. I was a little thrown off when my prototype wasn’t updating even though the green check (up to date?) was there. The copy with ‘share again’ feels wrong to me when you can share again OR update the app.

    I’m not marking this as completed, because we’ve gone through a number of iterations on the popup (now Share Mode), which removed the green checkmark. Given that the product has shifted so much, I’m marking this as inactive.

  10. Right-click > "Pick Layer" - list just the objects/layers under mouse position

    In Sketch, you can right-click any area of an artboard and select any of the layers that are under the cursor. This is immensely helpful in selecting layers covered by other layers (eg, rectangles covered by text). And in the absence of a layers panel, it is the only way (that I know of). In any case, it's the most convenient way to do so.

    I’m marking this as inactive for the following reasons:

    • This was originally filed when XD had no layers panel, and it now has one
    • We also recently introduced a change to the Cmd+Click / Ctrl+Click behavior that would cycle through the layers visually as you selected on the canvas

    Given these two things, I’m closing this one as no longer applicable. Feel free to file additional feature requests in this area if you still feel like XD is missing something!

  11. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. Basic image editing (Fireworks)

    We are still using Fireworks as a great tool for layouting for web and digital projects and it's powerful and fast tools for editing bitmaps is something that will make XD stand out from the competitors.
    We know that is a design and prototyping tool but in many phases of our UX and UI design we need some basic bitmap editing activities (we know that Photoshop can do that but the spped and intuitive interface of Fireworks is something that any other Adobe tools does not have).
    It would be great that improvement would be integrated into XD.

    Best from…

    Fireworks had a lot of features! We prefer if feature requests are filed more individually, to keep the list tidy and so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in.

    Please upvote these existing items if they’re of interest, or file new items for specific other image-editing features you’d like to see in XD:

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

    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:
    Microinteractions (for your push request): https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12869229-animate-individual-elements-separately-custom-ani
    Scissor tool/slice: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13712892-scissor-tool-slice-vector-path

    I’ll file a separate story to track the FTP request and add the original poster as a voter.

  19. 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…
