  1. Text selection highlight color on Windows should invert

    When selecting text (via drag selection or double clicking a word), it will display the blue highlight boundary. There are some UI kits that use this blue as part of their wireframing palette making it impossible to see the text highlight when you have text on top of this color.

    Ideally, the selection highlight should just invert the color underneath it so you can always see the boundary.

  3. Delete non used component

    Sometimes I no longer use a component I have made, but it continues to show in my components list making it so long.
    It would be great if we have an option to exclude these non used components. Or, maybe a tag / icon showing it.

    Sherif has a response for you: Alan,

    Today in XD, you could select any layer inside the component and add a shadow to it, and it render outside the component bounding box. Does that solve your use case? if not, could you please add more detail into what you’re trying to achieve.

  6. INTUITIVE / Gesture ALIGN

    Move asn object to a "snap grid" then move to another "snap grid" then the object auto aligns to the behaviour and no the command. becoming more of a gesture to align. Zoomed out I could move an object to the boundaries of where I want it to align and it would centre to the snap boundaries.

  7. Opacity in master component

    I would like to see opacity value added to the component functionality, so that if I adjust the opacity in a master component, all the child components will have the same opacity value.

  9. Unlinking components

    In certain scenarios, I would like to unlink my components from other files, eg. if i imported the wrong components.

    Right now there seems to be no way of unlinking your components, other than creating a new file and manually delete the one you already have.

  10. Allow border or fill color to be focused so I can use saved colors from components to apply to fill OR border

    Similar to the 'Color' tool panel from AI.

    This can/should also incorporate other features like seeing the hex or color build information of the fill or outline without having to click into a secondary panel.

    Tie in key commands like 'x' for swapping the focus from outline to fill, 'd' for resetting to base black/white, etc.

  13. Show full list of features in on Windows 10 Hamburger Menu

    It is a serious pain when there is no View/Object/Edit/… menu on Windows 10.
    I know that there is not top menu in UWP design principles, but it means that menu will be present as hamburger menu, does NOT mean that there aren’t necessary feature in menu.
    There are too many features which become inaccessible on Windows 10 (as screenshot). Missing these menu items make Adobe XD on Windows 10 look no functionally at all because of missing many basic necessary features.

    It is not acceptable that user is forced to remember all shortcut keys from Mac then translate to…

    I’m going to leave this open, but everything from the Object menu is actually surfaced in the context menu (right click on an object or a selection of objects). You can find out all of the shortcuts there as well. The hamburger menu is really there on anything that is document-level (as was defined by Microsoft). We’re reevaluating what this looks like in future versions of XD, but I wanted to give you a heads up that you can find these shortcuts on the canvas itself.

  14. Adopt a more 'elegant' style for scrollbars on Mac

    Plugins, Layers and Assets panel at its minum width is a very narrow column on Mac. I think scrollbars are too large, also for XD's properties panel.
    It would be great having narrower scrollbars, as thin as in Windows or in the font menu, even better with a show/hide effect.

  15. Keep text editable when converted to a component

    XD v 19.1.22.6.

    I converted a button into component. Duplicated the component, and went to edit the text on the next button, and it was no longer editable. The text became a shape when converted to a component.

    Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but seems important.

  16. Adjust artboard height from top of the artboard like in Sketch

    If you have an artboard full with content and you want to add more content in near the top of the artboard, currently you can only increase the height of the artboard from the bottom.

    It would be great if you could also adjust the artboard height from the top of the artboard. This would reduce the time it takes to rearrange the content within the artboard.

    Sorry for the delay! In this case, there’s a way to do what you want to do.

    1. Select the artboard
    2. Turn on Responsive Resize
    3. Select the objects you want to pin to the bottom temporarily
    4. Switch responsive resize to “Manual”
    5. Click on the bottom pin
    6. Resize the artboard from the top

    In this case, your objects will actually pin to the bottom when you resize your artboard. Please let me know if you want something different than this.

  17. Horizontal-only-scale drag handle on short elements like text fields

    This small but frustrating issue has been such a common recurring problem for me. See attached. I know if I made the field much taller, the horizonal drag/scale handle would appear, but text fields are always short, I'm always tweaking the length, and it seems like there's room to fit the handle. Why not have it?
