  1. Keyboard shortcut: Rename layer/group

    Would love to have a menu item at the very least, that I could assign a keyboard shortcut, to rename a layer or group. I'm on a big display and it wastes so much of my time, dragging my mouse all the way to the top left to also double click a layer.

    Thanks!

    • Overlays below the viewport height in scrollable artboards

      For desktop apps, it's really commun to have Selects elements below the fold.

      Overlays would be really really useful for that. But for some reasons, the overlay gets stuck to the bottom of the viewport while trying to position it below.

      So that I cannot use overlays in my scrollable artboards, and make them pop pop from anywhere on the page (of course, by preserving scroll position)

      Thanks guys.
      Hope this will be part of a release soon!

      • Overlay doesn't work with scroll

        If you have a scrolling art board 2000px high (1366 wide), set a scroll position of 768px. Add an overlay to hot spot to call an overlay panel at say 800px and then as you scroll to the hot spot at 800px click to reveal the overlay and nothing will happen. It is broken by the scroll.

        • Prototype overlays cannot placed outside artboard

          1) Artboard overlay indicator is placed
          2) Content on artboard cannot be aligned with button or page margin
          3) In order to show box-shadow in the protoype I had to extend my overlay artboard. But then I cannot align it to the page margin or button, because the overlay function does not allow me to place it outside of the view.

          Also it would be great to see the applied grid/layout settings in prototype mode, so it is possible to place the overlays pixel perfect.

                After discussing with the team this is working as designed. Overlay position is relative to the viewport. Meaning, wherever it is set to appear in the linked artboard is where it remains.

                I’ve updated the title and moved to feature request forum for team to consider including in future release.

                Thanks for sharing your feedback!

              • "Favourite Fonts" not available in XD like in the other Apps like Ai or Ps?

                Shame as it makes it easier to browse through the fonts we usually used the most or the most - I suppose that the other option is to save the top choices in the current project library?
                XD version: 10.0.12.09 / CC version: 3.1.0.8

                Many thanks for your help and time!

                • Export original image inside a mask, not just the masked region.

                  When exporting a selected image inside a mask for export, the expectation is that the original photo will be exported if thats all I've selected. Instead it's just exporting the masked region.

                  This is particularly frustrating you need to pass along original assets to a development team that will do their own masking on a live website or app.

                    Hello Joshua:

                    That makes a lot of sense! One way to work around this is to create a mask group. This will keep the image as a separate layer within the group that can then be enabled for batch export.

                    I’ve moved this report over to the Feature Request forum for team to review.

                    Cheers!

                  • Published Prototype default transition: Pls REVERT to "none" instead of slide left

                    We have a project of complex web app designs, once we're ready to submit this for review, we:
                    - publish prototype
                    - create public link (allow comments and show hotspot hints)

                    so BEFORE, we open the xd link to browser (chrome) then scroll through designs using left and right arrow keys to review every page. There's no transition between pages, so it will be easy to spot misalignments and inconsistent spaces. We haven't added transition wires on every page, just created public link then review online. Now, the transition between pages is "slide left".

                    Not effective, can we revert it…

                    • Renaming character styles or symbols does not affect design specs

                      HI,

                      I tried out the feature of renaming charater styles and updated the design specs afterwards. When I opened the design specs they still had the original names. Rendering the feature half way useful.
