      • Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

        Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

        • Design with Data

          I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

          I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.

            • Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)

              This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.

                Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

                In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

                If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

                -Elaine

              • Scale/resize symbols individually

                I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

                Please let us scale the symbols

                • Flip vertical/horizontal

                  I am trying to create icons in XD and want to make sure they are symetrical but there is no flip option in the edit menu.

                  I tried to use the width, height and coordinates to do this but without guides, or the ability to unlock the ratio this does not work either

                  • Linked Objects / Images

                    Option to link objects (or generate smart objects) when pasted from a PSD or AI source to maintain a reference.

                    This would provide a simple method for single or multiple object updates (beyond the CC Design Libraries integration)—saving time and ensuring all objects are the most current.

                    Example: Revision to a microphone icon via Illustrator, which is used across 20 artboards

                    • Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

                      It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

                          • Button tool - style text box with border, background color, padding (auto resized when text changes)

                            To speed workflow it would be good to have button tool in the sidebar. In the property inspector you'd have the ability to specify the top,bottom, left and right padding. the width of button would dynamically resize as you type the button's label.

                            • Revision Control

                              It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

                                  I want to have a consistent set of swatches, with the ability to import saved palettes or to share/export a palettes. It would be nice to have access to multiple palettes as well

                                    • Use CSS properties / classes to specify object appearance

                                      Add unique CSS properties to object properties.
                                      Things like Margins, Padding and un-even borders are not common for design apps, but it would be great to define them per object in XD, honor them in the design mode, and export them as part of the object css,

                                      • Fonts preview

                                        When you choose font for text, would be good to have some preview about how it'll look.

                                        • Blend Modes

                                          It would be awesome to have blending modes in the sidebar.
