  1. Typographic features

    • can't edit any part of text separately . Try to give different weight,style,size or color any piece of text, this changes whole text.
    • can't kern any text
    • can't give a line height *this is vital
    • can't reach glyph

  2. Collaboration on same document (real-time OR check-in / check-out model)

    I would love to be able to work with my design team at the same time on the same file on different computers and instantly see changes made by someone else in realtime.
    Currently, we use Google Drawings to create wireframes because it allows us all to work in the same file at the same time and to instantly see changes made.

    I’m pleased to announce that we’ve introduced Coediting in its early form in XD 24. You can get more info on this beta feature on letsxd.com. If you have feedback for us, please do file them as separate tickets here on UserVoice!

  3. Support math operators in number fields

    It will be nice I can use that 200/2 = 100 directly in a numbered field just like any other Adobe App. (/ and - and * and +)

    As of our June release, you can now use math operators in numeric fields! If you don’t see the update, open the Creative Cloud desktop application, select the … in the upper right corner, and select “Check for App Updates.”

  6. Responsive Design

    Would love to see a way to prototype for different screen but not to copy paste and adjust the size - make it like in Indesign that we can link files to different sizes.

    Have a tool that can collect the assets and place them together into a different scree.

    Hello,

    With last week’s update of XD, we introduced Responsive Resize – a way to easily resize your elements as you adapt them to different screen sizes. This should massively speed up your workflow.

    Download the latest version of XD to give it a try, and check out a 3 min overview of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKvg8_8jv10&t=2s

    Look forward to hearing what you think!

  7. Save symbols to be used across multiple projects

    Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

    Hi Everyone!

    With XD May release, now you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    Please give it a try and let’s us know what you think

    To learn more about this feature check out:
    https://letsxd.com/whats-new
    https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/linked-assets.html

  8. Override styles in a symbol (allow symbol differences)

    Right now, you can override text and bitmaps in a symbol. I'd like to be able to override appearance properties like opacity, fill color, borders, shadows, and font style.

    Hi All,

    We’re excited to announce that with our May release, we have introduced Components (previously known as symbols). Components are design elements with unmatched flexibility that help you create and maintain repeated elements while varying the instances for different contexts and layouts.

    You can create a master component to define a reusable element, such as a button, and you can change any of its properties to customize instances of that element (Size & Layout, Style and Appearance, and Structural overrides). Changes you make to an individual instance are specific to that element, but changes you make to the master propagates to all the instances where the property hasn’t been customized.

    Components now could also be responsively resized with the same powerful capabilities of responsive resize baked in.

    Finally, you could link components across documents to maintain a single source of your components using the Link Assets feature or simply…

  9. Mirroring mobile app

    It is super important to live view your design as you work.

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to let you know that you can now preview, in real time, your #AdobeXD designs and prototypes, on iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) or Android phones (Android tablet support will land soon). Make changes to your design and see it reflected on all the devices you have connected. Add wires to your prototype and play with it to polish the experience, all within the same workflow.

    View all the details here (blog post and video): https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/september-update-of-adobe-experience-design-cc-preview

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
    Be part of XD’s journey on mobile devices, this is just the beginning.

    Really looking forward to hearing your feedback!

  10. Add Gradients to appearance panel

    Allow users to add a gradient to a shape instead of just fills.

    When importing a shape with a gradient from illustrator it currently makes the shape invisible…

  11. Reorder assets within the Asset Panel

    Manually drag-n-drop to sort assets in the Assets window

    Problem:
    Assets in the Asset window are not always sorted per expectation.
    Example-1: If during a project I create a tint of a certain color, I may want to place that swatch next to its parent color.
    Example-2: I need to sort my color assets in accordance with our style-guide and have the primary prior to my secondary colors.

    Solution:
    Be able to drag-n-drop assets in the Asset window to sort them manually.

  12. Shortcut to activate eyedropper to pick a color

    I really miss the (l) colorpipette/colorpicker shortcut. Because I now have too much (mouse/pen)movement to the right panel, in stead of doing all with shortcuts... This and more shortcuts from photoshop/illustrator like (z) for zoom.

    You can now use spell check in the September release of XD! If you can’t see the update, select … from the Creative Cloud desktop application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you have additional suggestions for this feature, please file a separate request!

  14. Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

    Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

    At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

    Thanks!

    Best regards,
    Guy

  17. Built-in Library of Wireframe Elements, for generic web / mobile design

    To be able to use XD as a useful tool for content architecting/wireframing (before design, before prototype) - a library of generic common web and mobile web elements would be very useful (in an easily accessible panel - NOT by copying and pasting from a template file).

    For example:
    - Image/Logo (resizable) placeholder
    - Horizontal and Vertical Nav placeholder
    - Icon library (like hamburger, search, map point, etc)
    - Text block (resizable) placeholder
    - Scrollbar (horizontal, vertical) placeholder

    etc

    Think Balsamiq, or OmniGraffle wireframe tools for example.

    Thanks for your feedback on this! With the introduction of plugins, we now have a wide variety of plugins that will meet this need. You might want to try out the Quick Mockup plugin, which was just released. Check it out, and feel free to file a new ticket if you’re looking for more!

  18. Spacing Before or After Paragraphs

    Would love to have the ability to adjust the spacing before or after a paragraph as InDesign and Photoshop. Right now I can change the line height, but there needs to be another setting to adjust spacing between paragraph blocks.

  19. Fit Textbox to Text

    I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

    This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

    You can currently fit area text to its content by double-clicking the bottom area text resize handle.

    It works both when the text is shorter than the area text box and when the text is larger than the area text box. When the text is larger than the box and truncated, the bottom resize handle will turn red.

  20. Select multiple items across different groups

    Shift+Click allows to select multiple items.
    Cmd+Click allows to select inside a group.
    Cmd+Shift+Click would be nice if it selected items across different groups.

    It's very useful to change details (i.e. color) across multiple items inside groups (i.e. icons).

    Thanks!
