  1. font

    Styling fonts seem to be very limited in XD which is a shame because I love everything else about it. Not asking for anything crazy, but simply to add the same text box feature in Illustrator to XD.

    The feature I'm talking about is the ability to easily change a line of text to a text box by double clicking in AI. Having that same feature in XD will help with my wireframing SO much.

    Also, the ability to easily shrink or enlarge type. Right now I can only enlarge texts NOT in a text box. When it's in a…

    Regarding the first issue, you should upvote this: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13615449 (ability to switch between area and point text). The second issue – you should be able to change a section of your area text by highlighting the text in edit mode. Check out the documentation here (click on “Format text” in the navigation to scroll to the right area): https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/help/text-tools.html

  2. Repeat grid across 2 or more columns

    I have a 2 column grid of portrait photos, but the images that I select for 'Repeat Grid' only populate one of the columns instead of both columns. It would be really nice if the photos repeated i.e. from left to right, top to bottom.

  3. Rulers and Guides

    This looks like it could eventually be a great competitor for Slack. However, critical to the design process are rulers and persistent guides, just like all other Adobe design products. This would seem like a first iteration feature. I couldn't really switch to XD until those crucial items are in place. Other than that, it's a very good start.

  4. Layout and picture boxes, rulers and guides

    The model for layout programs is to use layout boxes that you import assets into whether text or pictures. This what makes layout programs like indesign so flexible and powerful.

    Mask with shape is absolutely the wrong approach.

    Adobe has had the worlds best layout and design program in indesign for more than a decade now. The XD team seriously need to start paying attention to how things are done in indesign if they want to create a great product. Just because XD is for the digital workspace does not mean that the principals of what make a great layout…

    It’s really difficult for us to aggregate these multiple-feature requests. Please do file these as separate issues in UserVoice so that we can catch your vote!

    BTW, the toggle between design and prototype is already in the product: Ctrl-Tab.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your feedback. This correction is actually set in your operating system with the dictionary integration. You can turn this off in your computer’s keyboard settings under text: “Use smart quotes and dashes”

  8. ^control Command C no longer work in XD!!! Please FIX!!!!

    Some bug is preventing me from using this shortcut key and it's interrupting my design flow.

  11. Replacing component with another component

    An ability to replace a selected component on an artboard with any other master component in the document; would improve workflow speed for testing ideas or managing complex design systems.
    Something like a right click option could be quick for the user.

  12. Allow a unique "hover" state for each "new" state

    States are great, BUT, I always thought the idea was that they could be an easy change mechanism for all components, thus it would be nice that for every "new state" that gets added from the menu, each could have its corresponding hover state. Otherwise, a new component has to be created for each one and thus making "new state" only really viable for components that are non-interactive (like status indicators).

    Thanks for your feedback. You can actually create hover interactions between states in Prototype Mode; the “hover” is just a shortcut to create your first hover state. I’ve attached an animated GIF that shows you how to do this between any state you want. Hope this helps!

  13. Paste SVG code into Adobe XD

    It would be awesome to simply take SVG code and paste it into Adobe XD to create the object instead of saving an SVG as a file and then copy it into Adobe XD. Figma does that pretty well and it helps with projects where I need to grab logos from the browser.

    Go into the browser, select a logo, click "inspect", select the SVG code, go to Adobe XD, then CMD-V and the object shows up on the artboard.

    感谢您提交机票! 这似乎是一个错误,而不是功能请求,因此,您绝对应该在社区支持论坛上提交此文件。 https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/bd-p/xd?page=1&sort=latest_replies&filter=all

    此消息已被机器翻译。

    Thanks for filing a ticket! This seems like a bug and not a feature request, so you should definitely file this on the Community Support Forum. https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/bd-p/xd?page=1&sort=latest_replies&filter=all

  15. Remove all bugs

    I can spend hours attempting to do the simplest things in this app using the latest version on Catalina. PowerPoint is better than Adobe's idea of a working XD design app. Thank you for charging us on a monthly basis for buggy products. It's not like you have competition. Oh wait, you do.

  17. Open anchor points and corner radius

    If the adobe can provide the functionality to remove anchor point and so the rectangle will be open right now if you remove also it will be a close object and one more thing if you create an open square with pen tool it restrict designer to give a corner redius. If you can provide my feedback to adobe XD development time that would be good for next update.

  20. "Command + 1" doesn't work anymore (100% zoom)

    Pressing the combination Command and 1 keys doesn't reset the zoom to 100%. It stopped working around June 1st 2020. Command + 0, for example, works fine as before.
