  1. All functions of Adobe Fireworks

    Can you import all the features that were available in Adobe Fireworks. That was a great product I know a number of people still use.

    We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

    Some of the ideas mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

    Please feel free to file individual UserVoice suggestions with specifics for any other ideas that we may have missed. Thanks for your feedback!

  2. K.I.S.S

    Don't bloat XD. Sketch are the winner in the category just because it does what you need to and nothing more and it does everything perfectly.

    Be honest, look at what Sketch does and take from that. The video that surfaced when Comet was announced was perfect. All it needs is what Silver (now owned by InVision) promises for Sketch).

    Why do we need support for Indesign and Photoshop files etc.

    Keep it simple, do it beautifully and we will come.

  3. I want to be able to adjust the height of the text box

    Now the height of the text box of the text cannot be changed. I hope that we can provide us with the value of the text box and change the fixed height of the text box.

  4. Duplicate vs. copy & paste

    1. What's the difference between 'duplicate' and 'copy & paste' in the drop down?

    2. When I copy & paste, I didn't notice the paste happened exactly on top of the copy. It took me a whole to notice where it was, the realized how many I did that was hidden behind. Please make this more apparent.

  5. Make Global Symbol to Local Symbol

    Currently, all the symbols are by default link to the source document, once we unlink the symbol it is no longer symbol. It would be great if we are able to unlink the from the source document yet keep it as a common symbol with the same file.

  6. Feature request blog post

    I have been using XD for over a year now. I recently did a blog post raving about how good it is.

    In part 2 I do mention where it could be improved. I noticed that one bug bear has been fixed already and that's the pasting of prototype links. Good stuff!

    Give these pages a read:

  7. Specify units for Font Size

    When setting text, an arbitrary number is shown for the size (and all other attributes), with no unit — I am assuming this size is in points, but I can't be sure. While I can just size visually, it would be nice if the units were displayed and could be specified. That way, I can use sizes I know work without guess-and-checking in a life size preview.

  8. Extensive GPU Support

    To speed things up big-time!

    Most of the users will have a decent graphics card anyway to support a big screen resolution (which is comfortable when designing)

    I’m marking this as not a feature request, as we haven’t yet released Windows yet. That being said, we’re definitely making sure that our Windows app is going to be as performant as it can be, which means using every trick in the book (including leveraging the GPU) to make sure it’s as zippy as possible. Stay tuned!

  9. 01: Lock Ratio when scale; 02: Multi tabs for working space; 03: Short cut for Design/prototype mode

    01: When I wanna scale an image or icon with a certain number I need a lock ratio check box to link the width and height.
    02: I prefer to working with multi tabs for the documents like Photoshop/Ai....
    03: I prefer a quick change mode between Design/Prototype

  10. Not Useful

    This tool is impractical at best and at the moment completely useless in a production environment. There is no right-click menu (efficiency/productivity). If the design is approved, there is no way for the developer to pull out specific assets (and not way to pull the layout into another ADOBE program in order to package assets for dev. There is no interoperability between adobe products. If the design gets approved, anything completed in this app must be completely abandoned and redesigned from scratch in another program (sketch, illustrator, Photoshop). WE don't have time to do the work twice. No thought of…

    I’m sorry you weren’t happy with our first beta, but rest assured, we’re addressing many of these issues on a monthly basis. Our intent on releasing early was not to bring a fully-fledged product into market, but to provide people who are interested in giving feedback an opportunity to see an early version of the product.

    I do hope you’ll come back and reevaluate once we reach 1.0.

  11. Giver greater contrast to text edit background color

    It's very hard to tell when text is in edit mode on the canvas.. there isn't enough contrast like there is when placed on a white background like an artboard

  12. link font to color asset

    Link the font color to a specific color in the asset library so if you change that color it will affect the character style throughout

  13. Asset Search

    Asset search would be extreamly useful. Especially when using an icon library for example.

    Thanks for your inquiry! We shifted to having a link so that you can get the latest UI kits at any time. Often, the OS developers (like Apple, Google, and Microsoft) update the OS and its paradigms, and the UI kits within the product lag by a couple of months. By giving the OS manufacturers control over the UI kits, you can get the latest design elements faster.

  16. I can't delete a color after adding

    After add a color, I can't delete it. I have tried the right mouse button and remove, for example (just tried as a option).
    I have added a wrong color on my color palette and I want to delete it. How I can do that?!
    Thank you

  17. To view zoomed out InDesign documents as a grid?

    It would be really beneficial when I zoom out of (for example) a 40pp Indesign document to view all the pages grouped (in order) horizontally and vertically in a grid pattern as oppose to one long column.

    Currently the view on screen is one long column. It still involves a lot of scrolling up and down and would be better to work/see the pages in a grid (almost similar to ai artboards).

    Is Indesign capable of such a view? I think this could be a real asset to have.

  18. Multi select Text elements to mutate their properties

    I want to be able to hold the Cmd/Shift key and multi select text elements to change either their font size or weight etc. Right now, I'm having to set them individually as selecting second while hold the cmd/shift deselects the first.

  20. 09: Desktop Software Application

    We're working on a really heavy piece of software and Mobile prototyping is just not going to cut it.

    I understand and it's smart to merge ideas into other/similar request from other users.

    But Desktop software needs are different. e.g. I need a side panel to slide in from the right side of my artboard, not the entire artboard sliding... It would be really nice to have a 09: Desktop category to begin to educate us all of the differences between Mobile app. and Desktop Apps. Thanks
