  1. Find Artboard, Layer, or Text

    I just noticed that sometimes its hard to find artboards, text, layers if you have a large prototype pages in your project. I think it would be nice to have a search function like the photoshop layers that has the ability to search through layers,styles,text,layer names and more. Maybe some "solo"(after effects feature) feature as well to show only the page that you are working on.

    Closing this one as we’ve delivered search and filtering options for layers panel a while ago.

    If you’re experiencing any issues with the current feature, please let us know in a comment or in a separate request.

    Best,
    Dan

  2. Snap text box edges to edge of text

    When using the Text Tool, it would be good if the edges of the automatically created text box snapped to the edges of the text. This would ensure distance between elements is calculated from the text itself, rather than the text box it sits within.

    Hi All -

    We’re excited to announce that with XD May release, 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.

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

    Please give it a try and let us know what…

    Linear gradients are in! Download the June release of XD today to create and edit your linear gradients for object fills. To access this feature, select the fill color picker pop-up and select “Gradient” from the drop-down at the top of the dialog.

    If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon and select “Check for App Updates.”

  6. Eyedropper tool to copy styles

    Ability to use the eyedropper tool to copy existing text styles and ability to click on existing paths to copy stroke, colour etc.

    These features are available in Illustrator and would be really helpful in XD too!

    Apologies for the lack of update on this! We now have a new feature that should address this problem: paste appearance. In Design mode, copy any object and then select any number of objects to apply styles to (including text). Then you can execute the paste appearance command (Cmd+Opt+V for Mac, Ctrl+Alt+V for Windows) and apply anything from text styles to border styles.

    As always, we’re looking for feedback on what changes you’d like to see in the feature going forward, so try it out for a little while, then file your suggestions here in UserVoice!

    If you don’t see your August update immediately, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click the gear, and select “Check for App Updates.”

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  7. Flexbox functionality (Smart Layout)

    Basically the same function as flex has in CSS.


    • Justify: Space Between

    • Justify Space Arround


    • Direction: Column and Row


    This will make is easier to spred icons or text in a container.

  9. Move Fix Position when scrolling back to design mode

    i ve just noticed you removed the preserve scroll position from design. This is a horrible thing for me. Doing that forces me to prototype EVERYTHING.

    for example: i have 100 artboards that are unconnected due to time saving ( i dont need to prototype everything ) but moving that button forces me to do it becaus now i cant make a quick preview for my client where he can scroll up and down. Now i will have to connect ALL 100+ boards together.

    why? Because when you are EXPORTING for REVIEW or DEVELOPMENT
    only the connected boards are being…

  11. Artboard Scrolling

    This idea addresses how we can have longer pages beyond the current artboard dimensions without manually resizing.

    Artboards could actually be just a viewport. You could double click on a given artboard to open an expanded canvas.

    In the crude example I've uploaded below, I can still keep all of my screens aligned as I have been. When I double click on an artboard, the canvas is expanded to show I have much more content on the page. Perhaps the rest are dimmed to emphasise where we are. Think isolated mode in Illustrator.

    This would keep the best of the…

    This is indeed completed. We have a few additional enhancements to this feature that we’ll be adding in an upcoming release including a property inspector addition for scrolling giving you more control over your viewport and an artboard’s ability to scroll.

  12. Highlight related symbol when an instance is selected

    As a designer (working in a complex document) when I select an item on an artboard, if it happens to be a symbol (if Symbol Library panel is open), I would like the corresponding symbol in the Symbol Library to be highlighted. This will help me to locate it so I can name or delete it from the library. Then, if I selected every artboard on a document it would highlight all of the used symbols in the Symbol Library. This would help me to identify any unused symbols - for deletion/cleanup.

  13. Make nudge grid-dependent

    It would be really nice if you can make the nudge (Shift + Arrow) work with the same size as the grid by default or add some tool to change it. I think this way we can work even faster.

    For example: for an 8px grid, make the nudge 8px instead of the default 10px; for a 4px grid, nudge 4 px and so on.

    Additionally, another mode could be added to make the nudge twice the size of the grid. For a 4px grid, nudge 8px.

    It's the same principle as nudg.it for Sketch, but without the hassle of…

  14. Select behind/select by path only

    Would like the ability to be able to select a object/path behind another with a cmd+double click (?) as per indesign, or be able to 'select by path only' like illustrator

  15. Relative positioning within a group

    Relative positioning in a group will allow us to create custom UI components.
    Attributes such as alignment, distribute, padding and margin between two or more objects will allow flexibility to resize a group without re-arranging internal objects.

    Unlike responsive behaviour, this feature does not care about artboard size, but treat a group as a mini-artboard.

    In September, we released the Responsive Resize feature, which gives you both the flexibility to resize automatically as well as define the relationship between objects using constraints.

  19. Change Save As behavior to remove Copy of

    Remove "Copy of" text from filename when I "Save As" — Change to number increment

    Every time I want to save a new iteration of my file, I hit Command+Shift+S to "Save As".

    XD automatically adds "copy of" to the beginning of the filename and I have to delete it every. Single. Time.

    Does anybody actually names their files this way? You'd end up with "copy of copy of copy of copy of filename" instead of a simple numbered "filename 5".

    Would be cool to see XD smartly increase the number by 1 every time like it does with the artboards.…
