Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

        Within all the other Adobe software and one competitor you can create custom shortcut keys to help with your workflow. Please allow me/the user to see in the software the list of all the keys and be able to edit them and possibly upload a config file of the shortcuts. This would be a marked differentiation in the space. Most other SW that competes with XD doesn't have this just a list on a tech support site.

        Yes, this would be a great add. In Photoshop I've created a shortcut for collapsing all layers and groups so that it's easy to keep things neat and tidy. However, in XD after a little bit of clicking around the layers become expanded and messy and the only way to collapse them is to individually click on them. This is a very time consumer process when you're doing it multiple times per day.

        Can customization shortcuts be added for any function in the program such as the right hand panel where you do the majority of the work? It would speed up productivity a lot and have to do less mousing between the main canvas area and the right hand panel. For example, a shortcut for fill where you press control + shift + d or something and the fill window pops up right behind your cursor. It might not seem to take a long time to go to the right hand bar for fill or anything else every time but it does over the course of a day. It would speed up workflow a lot. Same goes for shadow, border, etc.

        As in photoshop or illustrator, adobe XD should allow set the keyboard shortcuts.

        Here is my concept and idea on how the Keyboard Shortcuts feature would look like if it was integrated into Adobe XD :)

      • Phil commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would really like to be able to change some of the shortcuts to match my workflow. Things like aligning, and color picking. Having the ability to adapt the workspace to what I need and how I work would be fantastic!

        Was this one ignored as well? None of these seem to be implemented. But each release does bring new problems for us to solve (and the costs that go with it).

      • Lovechand Shrestha commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Absolutely right. I'm currently breaking my fingers to switch between layers and assets (CTRL+Y and CTRL+SHIFT+Y) urhhhh! Can't I replace Y with R .... Well That'be awesome. Thanks!

        XDは仕事で使わせていただいています。

        ・ショートカットキーのカスタム(他のソフトでの癖でヒューマンエラーを起こすため)

        ・数値入力欄で、illustratorのように計算でオブジェクトのサイズや、位置を制御(入力欄でX.y値や、オブジェクトの縦横幅を+10px等正確にいっぺんにできるため)

        上記ができるようにして頂きたいです。

        よろしくお願いいたします。

        Translation:
        I want a shortcut key custom and a calculation function in the numerical field of the object.

        XD is used at work.

        · Custom of shortcut key (to cause human error due to habit of other software)

        · In the numerical value input field, control the size and position of the object by calculation like the illustrator (because X.y value in the input field and the vertical and horizontal width of the object can be exactly at the same time)

        I would like you to be able to do the above.

        Thank you.

        The ability to switch mappings for tools would make the transition from other software and continued use much easier. For example, changing select (V) to select (W).

        The new grid layout is awesome... but the default keyboard shortcut is already tied to something else on my Mac. Really need to be able to customize the keyboard shortcuts in Adobe XD so I can create something that works for my Mac!

      • Martin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        all "Arrange" and "Grid" shortcuts are not working on Slovak keyboard.

        Hopefully this feature will be available soon.
