Line/stroke ending in arrows
Line start and end should allow arrows, triangle, or circles
(this covers some topics already tracked elsewhere on UserVoice: please upvote those other suggestions if you're interested in dotted lines and CSS-driven styling).
In CSS and other adobe tools we have Stroke or Border options like type or style (dotted, dashed) start and end (arrows, triangle, circles). In XD we do currently have weight and color options, though it will be amazing to add these options to reflect dotted arrow line or dashed border around a rectangle etc.
Several of the items originally mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already:
- Dotted/dashed lines: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13024749-dotted-and-dashed-line-border-styles
- Accept CSS as input for styling XD elements: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12926715-use-css-to-specify-object-appearance
The only suggestion I think we don’t have listed yet is arrow-head line endings. To keep the request list tidy, I will change the title here so it is specifically focused on that one idea. Please upvote the other links above so your interest in those features is captured too.
Thanks for your feedback!
it is unbelievable that this feature is NOT included yet in XD, just can't fathom how this could have happend...

Currentlly I do a lot of Architecture Information and Wireframe stage design and having an option for line edit with arrowhead endings is a deal breaker between XD and Sketch.
The closer the function will look like in Illustrator the better.

Upvoting to get a line/stroke with optional end-of-line additions, like arrows and circles. UX people do A LOT of user flows and this is a basic necessity for a user flow. Which is why I'm surprised that it hasn't been done for 4 YEARS.

I am upvoting this need for basic arrows and line types within XD. Lets get it going Adobe!

Wow, Adobe after having developed so many applications, couldn't think of having a simple arrow at the end of a line for an application that is mainly developed for creating flow charts, wireframes, UI kits, etc., is simply unbelievable... Please add this ASAP!

-------------------------> need arrow endpoints
Yes! Please add - this feels SO basic.
I can't believe this isnt in the app already!
Need me some arrows, please!
+1 Please this is needed for UX Journey / Flow diagrams. Also please add the ability like Sketch to click on a control point and add a corner value on that point. This will allow us to stretch lines with arrows and they (1) keep their corners intact at let's say 15px and also add line endings, e.g. open circle where it starts and arrow where it ends.

I would like to convert my entire design organization over from using Sketch to Adobe XD but there are still too many things missing in XD currently to justify doing so. I believe in the long-term vision of Adobe and am confident XD will get there in time but I would like to urge the team to do more and do it sooner to the benefit of the entire design community. The interoperability between Adobe applications is world-class and the security, extensibility, and community are all incredibly deep. Just need to make it easier to do things like add arrow heads to line segment endings and much more of those types of simple design tasks.

+1 vote for styling line ends with arrowheads, dots and squares. Would save heaps of time when doing diagramy designs that need to go through a lot of feedback and changes.
Loving that dashed lines are now available.
Lines should definitely have an option for arrows at one and both ends along with controls for size. This is useful for specifications or to highlight specific features.

XD should inspire from Miro for Arrow tool.

Also like the option for lines (with optional arrowheads :) to attach to objects - check out Omnigraffle for a good implementation - lines automatically attach to the object's center if you drag them there, or you can turn on "magnets" around the edge of the box. Then I could do interaction diagrams in XD too.
