Make UI even more resizeable.
The UI of Adobe XD can be resized to some extend, but I am running in screen real estate problems with my laptop which has a 3:2 screen aspect ratio (Surface Book). The design canvas is quite narrow with both the left-hand panel and the right-hand panel opened.
However that I can hide the layers panel when designing, it is not possible to control the size of the properties panel on the right, even though I think there is some room for responsiveness here as well (see example "right-hand panel responsiveness.jpg".
My idea would be to:
enable resizing of the right-hand properties panel (or maybe Adobe-style icons on the right-hand panel as well, opening alignment, repeat-grid, dimension panels upon clicking these icons).
building in an option to auto-hide the layers panel, which might give us as much screen as possible to work on.
Ironically, the XD interface itself is an issue. You should have user preferences and we as Designers should be able to adjust the text size, color and contrast of the XD interface. The gray and tiny font are difficult to read and hard on the eyes. You can only move your monitor closer which is totally unhealthy when you are working for hours. Not to mention usability and accessibility being a top function for Design? Been using Adobe products for 20 years, I don't understand why this has not been fixed.

It should be possible to scale the whole XD UI, like you can in Figma for example. I use a small laptop with a 125% scaling factor which is fine for everything except XD, which feels clunky to use at that size. If I set the Windows scaling factor to 100%, XD feels good to use but all other applications are too small for comfort.
how can i expand the whole panel. I have a large monitor and I can see a large list

The ability to scale the design/prototype/share boxes to make them smaller as to free up the work space. This would be similar to the creative suite with the toolbars.
