  1. Showing Layers AND Assets at the Same Time

    I can't believe this suggestion doesn't already exist, but I work on a 32" or a 27" monitor all the time. I have plenty of screen real estate. Why not let me view both Assets and Layers panels at the same time?

  2. Hide all panels

    Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
    (like F in Photoshop)

    feature-under-review  ·  MrTalin responded

    Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!

    I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow component instance overrides to be inherited by all states

    Currently (XD 24.0.22.19), if I drop an instance of a component and then adjust part of it (text in a button, size of the instance, etc.), that override is only applied to the selected state of the instance. So, if I have a button with many states (normal, hover, disabled, active, default action, etc.) I have to manually apply that override to each state of the instance. This is extremely tedious and error prone.

    Please provide the ability to have an override of an instance be inherited by all states in that component instance.

  5. Edit Color of Imported PNG (color overlay)

    Transparent PNGs do not allow color edits. Editing fills will extend to the rectangular bounds, not just the object

  6. Choose reference / anchor point for transform origin and X, Y display

    Being able to change the reference point from the upper-left to center or lower right or whathaveyou is so useful in other Adobe apps. Having to do everything with top-left x/y is a pain when trying to position objects by their center.

    Choose point by clicking 9-grid icon

  7. Ability to connect shapes to draw a flowchart

    I would like to be able to connect different shapes (rectangles, rhombuses/diamonds, ellipses, but potentially everything). The connector line should either be solid, dashed or dotted and end in an arrow. If I move a shape, both of the connected shapes stay connected (the line expands/contracts as necessary). The line should be able to carry a text label, either in the middle, at the beginning or the end (supercool would be if you could add an offset from/to beginning/end of the line).

    In other words: I would like to be able to draw a flowchart.

    For me as a UX…

  8. Align to key object

    One of the most convenient alignment features in illustrator is the 'align to key object', which Sketch doesn't support, making it difficult to align objects quickly. Please add that feature for XD.

  9. Swap symbols / replace with symbol

    Ability to right-click to swap Symbols in Design mode
    Or replace selected artwork with an existing Symbol


    This request does NOT cover nested-symbol overrides (swapping an inner symbol differently in each copy of an outer symbol). For that, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/19592509-nested-symbol-overrides

  10. Repeat Grid: different icons / SVG images in each grid cell

    Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
    My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.

    It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).

    Thank you.

  12. Include Baseline Grid for text

    I really like the feature on InDesign where you can view the baseline grid for text. Since the placement of text on a website depends on where it sits in its own baseline grid, it would be really helpful if there was a way to toggle it on and off.

    Having this would make it easier to know where exactly a block of text would be placed if it were say, 30px underneath an image.

    It would also really help if I wanted to make a word have a background color, so I could easily figure out how tall that…

  13. Display artboards framed by a mobile device outline

    Ability to add a device outline to show context.. would be cool to even create your own device outline (currently I'm designing a UI prototype for a smart credit card, but having to use a mobile screen UI canvas to show the interactions)

  15. Change default fill and stroke settings (color, etc.) used when drawing new shapes

    It's quite frustrating that every time I use the shape tools, I have to remove the stroke and change the fill.
    Like in ID and AI, it would be useful if the object fill and stroke remembers the previous settings, or a default could be somehow set.

  16. Line height: should function as it does on the web

    On the web, i often use line height to determin the height of the types container. Therefore the text should sit vertically centrally to its line height. This is different to how line height works in print.
    I also use line height for vertical rhythm. see more info on this here:
    http://typecast.com/blog/4-simple-steps-to-vertical-rhythm

    vertical rhythm is a huge factor when I design for web

  17. Ability to replace/update image files

    I wish I had the ability to select an image and be able to update the file or change the image with out having to import another image if it is exactly the same size or I updated the design.

  18. Repeat grid properties in the property inspector (spacing, number of rows/columns)

    Currently, there's no simple way to look up or adjust the spacing of an existing repeat grid element (other than grabbing and dragging the spacing area).

    This is sometimes bothersome because, 1) when just trying to look it up, you don't always want to change the spacing, and 2) finding the spacing adjustment area can be a bit fiddly.

    Also, when you DO want to adjust the spacing, it can be a bit tricky to get it on the exact pixel.

    Therefore, it'd be nice if the spacing property would show up as an input field in the right (properties)…

  19. Support Opentype font features

    Allow users to select Opentype features supported by a given typeface. This would be especially useful for anyone designing for ecommerce (tabular lining numerals), or text-heavy sites (small caps, proportional old style numerals), or rich typography in general (alternate stylistic sets, swashes, superscript, subscript, fractions). Common ligatures seem to be enabled already, but there's no way to access discretionary ligatures.

    Let's discuss what control over kerning you'd like to see in XD.
