    Thanks a ton for your feedback! Definitely reach out to the InDesign and Illustrator teams on their forums and ask them for a feedback site like this. Unfortunately, we have no control over how those teams work, but your feedback is critical in influencing the way they get feedback.

    InDesign: https://forums.adobe.com/community/indesign
    Illustrator: https://forums.adobe.com/community/illustrator

    Good luck!

  3. Share your roadmap?

    Guys we all appreciate the great work you are putting into this and we understand you can't work on everything at once, but at the same time, from the users' point of view, it can seem like a risky move to even consider switching moving to XD when there's no knowing which features will be implemented and when.

    For example if I had jumped in 6 months ago assuming underline will be supported by now, I would have been wrong.

    It would help if you could share at least some rough estimates for what you intend to work on for…

    Thanks for your feedback! We share as much as we can in our monthly blog posts in the Creative Cloud blog, in live streams, and at events like Adobe MAX, but we’re hesitant to publish a public roadmap due to the competitive landscape and the fact that we do pivot quite often to address feedback we get on UserVoice and in person. We totally understand your desire to get a hard list of items we’re working on, but we’re afraid we can’t provide such a list. We do keep UserVoice updated as much as we can, though, so our hope is that you find the information here useful!

  4. Great Job Guys! June 20: Scrollable Artboards.. (Applause) ..How about having a "praising page" for the Adobe XD Team.?

    Tons of complaints, I know.. You guys deserve a page to show you praise and approval of your hard work! Great to read during lunch time.

    Hey, guys! Thank you so much for your support of XD and the kudos. :) We read all of the messages in our forum, so I think that would be a great place to host all of the praise and encouragement you guys want to heap on our team. It’ll get passed along!

    We love to read customer success stories, so please do share there or via Twitter (#adobexd or @adobexd).

  7. Keep Simple!!

    Here are heaps of feedback & requests for powerfulness... However, I strongly believe that the most remarkable advantage of AdobeXD is its "simplicity", and I really love it. I really hope you keep it simple.

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! We’re definitely looking to maintain the simplicity of the product as we grow as an ecosystem. In all of our new features, we hope you’ll see the value of simplicity and clean design in each feature’s design.

    I’m closing this as not a feature request, as keeping things simple is a value we intend to pursue and not necessarily a specific request. :)

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  8. The feature I'd like most is a commitment that adobe is going to stick with this app long term

    Sorry bit of a dig, but many of us have been burned by adobe dropping apps that we have invested a lot of time and effort in.

    How committed are you to not lose interest in this app?

    I’m marking this as not a feature request, but I’ll say that Adobe’s investment in this initiative is high. Speaking for myself: ultimately, the bottom line still matters to Adobe as a business. Many of us on the team have worked on products that have been discontinued after we got some, but not a lot, of highly enthusiastic users. While these users were disappointed that we discontinued the products, it came down to this: the user base wasn’t big enough to support the amount of investment we were making in the product.

    So this is how you can help: tell everyone about XD. Use XD, use it often, use it regularly. Tell all your friends to do the same. Tell all your friends to tell all THEIR friends, influence their workplaces, show interest in and attend courses. The bigger the regular customer base, the more interested in investment the company…

  9. Provide German language tutorials

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials und Hilfe wäre eine Sache!

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials und Hilfe wäre eine Sache!
    Das ist fast wichtiger wie die Oberfläche von XD.

    Mit meinem Schulenglisch komme ich soweit ganz gut rum aber um eine Software mit deutscher Oberfläche" und englischer Hilfe u. Tutorials zu verstehen" die auch noch relativ NEU ist reicht es bei mir nicht aus.

    Die englische Fachterminologie für eine Software in deutscher Sprache macht mich fertig:-(

    Und lasst diese englischsprachen Newsletter an deutsche User. Bei euren Milliardengewinnen schafft ihr es sicher auch noch ein paar mehr Übersetzer zu bezahlen.

    Ihr müsst euch nach den Kunden richten…

    Danke für Dein Feedback und den guten Vorschlag hinsichtlich deutschsprachiger Newsletter zu Spezialthemen wie benannt. Letzteren habe ich an das entsprechende Marketingteam in Deutschland weitergegeben – unsere UserVoice Instanz wird ja primär vom XD Produktteam genutzt.

    XD Tutorials und die vollständige XD Hilfe ist allerdings bereits seit Jahren verfügbar!

    Du gelangst direkt aus XD heraus zu den deutschen Hilfeseiten (vorausgesetzt Du nutzt XD auf Deutsch, was ich hier annehme), schau mal im Menü “Hilfe” unter “Training & Support” nach. Das leitet Dich auf https://helpx.adobe.com/de/support/xd.html, und das ist der vollständige englische Inhalt, auf deutsch.

    Deutschsprachige Tutorials findest Du unter https://helpx.adobe.com/de/xd/tutorials.html. Nicht alle Videos sind immer synchronisert, aber sollte das nicht der Fall sein gibt es mindestens deutsche Untertitel.

    Hoffe das hilft! Lass uns wissen wenn es noch etwas hinzuzufügen gibt.

  10. Recent update

    Adobe has decided to update the software without warning to end-user like myself. Suddenly, all files aren't being able to view by clients on the app any longer. It was a nightmare while I am on vacation and I had to deal with the problem while internet connect is not working as fast as normal. Please in the future if you guys decided to update anything at least make the experience seamless not as troublesome as this time around. Who on earth has the time to sit there to sync all files again and dealing with multiple emails from clients…

    Thanks for your feedback. Andrew shared a comment with you a couple of days ago: “Apologies for the frustration that the changed caused for you here – we will continue to look for ways to improve communication when there are changes to existing workflows in the product.”

  11. Keep RAW support for windows 8

    I understand you have stopped updates for Windows 8 computers. While I absolutely hate this, the worst part is I can't open up RAW files from my new EOS R since you have tied RAW support to new updates!!!

    This has essentially rendered Lightroom/photoshop useless and I'm paying $50 a month for software with 0 support.

    I still think that you should either get Lightroom 8 working or offer an upgrade to win 10 (costs $150/computer) but at minimum, keep RAW support going so your creators can keep working!!!

    I now have to spend $150/computer to update them, do hours…

  12. Add menu for cycle through windows

    I think we should have a cycle through windows option under Window menu in the top. When I open multiple Adobe XD files, I can't cycle through the windows with any keyboard shortcut. I have to hold the mouse left key on the Adobe XD icon from the dock that wastes time for me every time.

  13. So let me get this straight admins of this site!

    I post a new request for a critical issue to be fixed specifying exactly what we need, and guess what :) It gets merged with a request that has been "UNDER REVEW" for more than 2 years! Just a polite way of saying we don't wanna bother ourselves with this :)

    Thanks for reaching out again. Please note that what we’re trying to do is aggregate feedback to see how many people are interested in a feature. In fact, adding to a feature that is “under consideration” is MUCH better than sitting as a request with only one vote. We’ve been working on many of our top 10 issues over these past two years, and the features under consideration are closer to the feature hopper than others. Hope that helps!

  14. How to scale an SVG relative to its canvas size with the command line

    Recently, i am facing a crazy problem. I'm trying to create a pipeline for rendering my vector graphics. Basically, I am trying to upscale the vector by 16 times, rasterize it, then downscale to supersample it back down to native resolution, which is based on the SVG's canvas.

    I'm trying to do this with ImageMagick but from what I have read it isn't possible because you have to explicitly tell ImageMagick the canvas size by pixels, and not by a percentage/multiplying.

    I use Adobe Illustrator 22.1 64-bit to create my SVG's, and ImageMagick 7.0.7-25 Q16 x64.

    Thanks & Regards

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Our design for Windows 10 follows UWP design guidelines, which removes the top menu bar. All of the file commands that you’re used to are underneath the burger menu in the upper left-hand corner. All of the object commands, however, are in the context menu, which you can find by right clicking on an object or group.

    Hope that helps!

  17. Make your UX designers use XD and ONLY XD for everything they do.

    Your tool is lacking in such basic and critical functionality that it is nearly unusable for a professional to use in a real work environment, with deadlines, quality of deliverables, asset hand off, etc that these basic enhancements would easily be addressed if you had the right group prioritizing the backlog.

    That means UX DESIGNERS, not product owners, should own this backlog.

  18. Email PDF of receipt of my Adobe subscription

    As a corporate user of the Adobe Creative Cloud, I expense the monthly charge to my company. When dealing with the Adobe system, the user has to log in to get a PDF receipt of the monthly charges. The system should be configured to allow the user to select one of two options: 1) email a receipt to the email address on file 2) email a notification that the receipt is available (with a link to the pdf after login).

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Unfortunately, as a product team, we don’t control this part of the subscription process. I have, however, submitted your request through the employee requests portal on your behalf so that the team in charge of that part of the product will see it.

    I’m closing this request as “not a feature request,” as it’s not an XD-specific feature request.

    Would be nice if I could edit my post in this forum instead of having to delete it and post it all over again, for instance if I forgot to attach an image or similar.

  20. Ability to vote on comments in this website

    Not sure where to post this idea, because it's more about this feedback website than about Xd itself. I wish we could vote on people's comments, not just on the idea itself. Sometimes the best ideas are buried within the comments, and I fear that they're getting lost.
