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.
Can we hurry up with this please? Christ, this should've been in the beta, not years and several iterations later....

Yep, it's so confusing when they tote being able to work cross platform easily, yet I have to constantly switch my brain to different forms of working and hotkeys when changing programs. Stop focusing on celebrity endorsement and focus on fixing your software.

My GOD! Why is XD slacking so much! As a professional designer that runs through adobe CC with my eyes closed, i feel like a noob when in XD. So many things missing. CRUCIALLY the inability to redefine shortcut keys like ALL OTHER APPLICATION in ADOBE CC. COME ON. Its been HALF A DECADE. I have been more than patient. But now its becoming detrimental to work flow.
No Shortcut keys
No Ability to move the tools bar around
Not being able to relink components to new components
No way to find/change/replace text or objects
SHAME, SHAME, SHAME

Still an amateur program until you fix this. Sorry not sorry

I really in need of it for example I want to minimize screen to 75% with ctrl 3
A very basic feature... A modern program must have this.
I am leaning more and more towards Figma.
Thats a serious problem. Cmon you gotta add that. Besides, I really dont understand why some Adobe Softwares have specific features and others do not. Like, dont you communicate internally or what else is the reason for not just implementing eg. the features from photoshop to xd? I dont get that..
I'm voting for this, too.

Can't believe it's still a backlog - the product manager in charge is clearly does not understand the end user (in this case UX designer) needs and workflows associated with these needs. If you were to do proper use research, you would uncover that this feature is really important to the design professionals and not being able to customise (create new) shortcuts will make us want to switch to a different product.
Could you please provide the same shortcut settings in all Adobe programs? Working on a non US Keyboard also makes it even harder to adjust.
I am personally struggling with the "Pan" shortcut, default bound on mouse wheel. I never click my mouse wheel and have a mouse that is partially broken (exactly the mouse wheel click doesn't work)
Still in the backlog, since 2016? Adobe XD seems to be a contradiction of good user experience :(
Yes please allow.
For exemple, It would really really be useful to have a shortcut that allow users to select (in the prototype), ALL the links of ONLY one artboard. I've been searching for that and the assistance support told me that this shortcut is not available
I've posted this idea about the prototyping mode, here is where users can vote for this idea of particular short-code : https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/42900885-a-shortcut-to-select-at-same-time-all-the-links-of
Thank you for allowing us to have a voice.
Yes, please allow. Some of us use other Adobe products and the A key for a new artboard should be able to be disabled. Please. Jeez 2016???

I can't believe that this has been "in the backlog" since 2016. I'm a new XD user and the clunky interface is driving me nuts! How MANY votes does it take to get something fixed?
Why can't you just provide the same settings/possibilities in all adobe programs? Especially memorizing the different shortcuts in every program is very exhausting...
Please be serious, we are paying users ! Fix the shortcuts customization in XD ! Thanks.
This is still not fixed!?!? This is a 4 year old request to correct your own ever growing inconsistency. Adobe, your biggest advantage is, that people can expand and change fields (like from print to web design) while sticking to your software, because it’s familiar. I was just about to start with Xd, but not like this.
Just a quick example how many shortcuts I have to remember for the single action of placing an image: InDesign: cdm+D; Illustrator: cmd+shift+P; Xd: cmd+shift+i; Premiere Pro/After Effects: cmd+i; Photoshop: no shortcut.
Do you think this is funny? Do you think I have a good time using your software? Do you think I will stick with you, when I don’t need InDesign anymore? And didn’t you invest in Xd to keep your InDesign users who are switching from print to web?
Why can't increase/decrease text be the same shortcut as in all other adobe programs? Why make it more difficult for everyone?
