  1. Export XD artboard to Photoshop as smart object

    I would be great to have a option to export selected artboard/s to Photoshop as smart objects. Just like Vector Smart Object from Illustrator.

    Currently copying and pasting XD artboard in Ps makes it as flat image.

    This could be useful for making advanced device mockups, we could make changes inside XD and it will automatically update in Ps. Or just show popup with choice "Smart object / Flatten image".

  2. Component states in the Touch Bar

    Show the component states in the Touch Bar when that specific component is selected. It's nice to be able to hit esc to return to the default component but you still need to mouse over and click on the next state you want to edit it.

  3. Retain angle and position of gradient in color asset

    When I save a gradient fill under 'Colors' section in Asset panel, the angle & position is not getting saved. Every time when I use that gradient from asset panel it is coming from top to bottom direction irrespective of what I had set before. Please retain the gradient angle & position also as part of the asset.

  4. Repeat duplicate including distance

    I would like to drag an object holding down option to duplicate it and having CMD-D (duplicate) repeat the duplication with the previously used distance.

    ALT-Drag from A to B -> CMD-D (uses the distance between A and B)

    This would help so much. Sketch and Figma already have this behaviour. I think even Illustrator has it.

  5. close preview window keyboard command

    I'm sure you used to be able to close the preview window with CMD+W now this is not possible, can you please reinstate that? (Mac Catalina) Thanks

    Thanks for reaching out. I just confirmed with our quality engineers that this does work on Catalina. However, if you have a keyboard trigger set on the artboard you’re previewing, XD will not respond to the command, as Cmd+W could be a valid keyboard trigger. Let us know if this resolves the issue for you.

  6. Bulk delete linked components

    Why is not possible to select group of linked components and delete them from project? Why this is only possible individually? I’m enclosing image.

    In general the management of components is quite week and not user friendly. I can link all components from others projects, but then I cannot unlink them or manage them at all... Good idea, but functionality is not quite finished .

  7. Select contained

    Add "Select Contained" like Axure. I don't like Select Intersected. I spend too much time selecting things I have not choice.

  8. Snap to vector points

    I am looking for a feature to snap objects to already existing geometry. So for example I have an existing line and want to draw a rectangle, which starts exactly at one endpoint and ends (with one side) at the other endpoint of the line (like object snap in AutoCAD for example or like the behaviour in Sketchup).

    For the moment I would be fine with snaping to endpoints, more advanced it would be great to have "variable" snapping to edges/lines as well.

    This would allow for more accurate and faster designs.

  9. Scroll assets panel with arrow keys

    4) Permitir desplazarce en la lista de activos, con las flechas del teclado, porque cuando hay muchos componentes es muy lento hacerlo con el mouse.

    4) Allow scrolling in the list of assets, with the arrows of the keyboard, because when there are many components it is very slow to do it with the mouse.

    3) Options in newly opened files, where you can copy the address of the file location or discover it in the browser.

  11. Cycle through objects that are highlighted on canvas

    2) Al Resaltar en Lienzo, debería hacer auto zoom, por lo menos en la mesa de trabajo donde se encuentra el objeto ya que entre tantos objetos, solo lo marca y no se aprecia donde se encuentra. Ademas seria ideal permitir cambiar el color de marcación para resaltarlo.

    2) When Highlighting on Canvas, you should auto zoom, at least on the artboard where the object is located since among so many objects, it only marks it and it is not appreciated where it is. Also it would be ideal to allow to change the marking color to highlight it.

  12. Search canvas for potential instances (exact matches) of a master component

    Please add the ability to search the canvas for exact matches of a master component to turn into instances.

    Scenario: you’ve created an element (button, icon, whatever) and forgot to make it a component. Before long... you have 30 of them scattered around and want to make an adjustment. Oops!

    It’d be nice if you could turn one into a master component, then have the option to search the canvas for identical elements to turn into instances of that component.

  13. Lock "Live Preview" to a single artboard

    I'm using XD more and more for creating and visualizing static graphic designs on multiple devices. Would be nice to lock the Live Preview to one artboard while designing in another.

  14. Make State/Hover Names Searchable

    I am using component states for currency icons (dollar, Euro, etc). I'd love to be able to search for "Euro" even though that instance/state is tied to a master component labeled "Currency".

    Breakdown: Type "Euro" into the search field and the Currency icon appears because one of its states is called "Euro". This will let me know the state I am trying to find lives in the Currency icon. Could be very helpful for others I have shared the components with to be able to find the right icon state.

  15. Trace image (create vector object out of bitmap)

    I would like to have a feature that allow me to drop a screen capture of a web page and make some kind of "trace" like in Illsutrator, but in this case Adobe XD would create vector elements for every item that detects on the image. Like an OCR for an image.

    I have to redraw pages sometimes and this would save a lot of time.

  16. Go to artboard

    On viewing the list of layers, the user should be able to 'go to artboard' through a right-click menu
    Currently, it is not possible to find an artboard from too many artboards in the application.

  17. Esc or Space key to get rid of notification

    When you are trying to delete a componenst off of your Assets list, sometimes you will check if its still on your canvas using the "Highlight on Canvas" option.

    Then the blue notification bar sometimes appears with "0 instances of this component found", which is fine.

    However, you need to click "X" to get rid of the notification every time. Instead of being able to quickly click ESC or something. This makes it hard (or should i say tedious) to do quick scan of the next component, because the blue notification linger around and may not apply to the new…

  18. Pick Hex Value of Objects with Adjusted Alpha Values

    If I create an object that's #000 and adjust the alpha value of it to say 5% XD cannot currently tell me what the hex value of that object is, it only says: #000000, 5%. In order to find out, I need to copy the object into Photoshop to find the actual hex value. Can you add the ability to determine what the value is without having to open a new app? Thanks!

  19. Increased performance on real time coediting

    Real time collaborations with others similar to Figma. Right now the feature has a very long delay/lag time

  20. Click on coeditor's avatar to zoom to selection

    It would be great if users can click on the co-editor's icon on the top right and be brought to the screen that the co-editor is working on.
