Please include:

  1. Description
  2. Why is this valuable to you?
  3. If possible, an image or movie to help us understand what you’re talking about

  1. Everything !

    Every design options Sketch has (style, gradient, type,etc)
    Every Prototype options InVision has (gestures, links, etc, etc,etc
    Every Animation possibilities Principle has
    Every Animation possibilities InVision/Motion will have
    Every prototype options InVision/Silver flow will have.

    Then you can start using the word "revolutionize"
    Because right now their is no way we can switch to that tool !!

    I don't want to be rude, I'm sure its a great deal of work, but the promise was that it would be a one-time tool and it is far far far from that...

    Thanks again for the honest feedback! If XD does not make sense to you, it’s totally ok to use the tools that make sense to your workflow. Hopefully, we will do a good job, deliver value with our monthly releases, and one day you can start using it for real work.

    If you’d like to track the progress in the different areas you highlighted above, could you please break them down in separate feature requests? It would be more useful for you to get updates on the progress of each feature request, separately.

    Thanks a lot.

  2. Prototyping + Testing

    I just gave Adobe XD a try, and I have to say- I think it's a great start toward something I might use, but needs a vast amount of work in order to be a truly valuable tool. As a full-time UX/UI Designer, let me tell you what I'd like to see added to this program:

    -The ability to, not only navigate form one page to another, but to add custom animations to that navigation (beyond just "push left" "dissolve" etc).

    -The ability to create animations based on user behavior on a single page. For example, when a user taps…

    We’re trying to keep the requests granular so that we can more easily aggregate feedback and get your vote counted correctly. I’m seeing four requests in here, some of which are already in the database. Please do upvote and add additional suggestions!

  3. Windows version to be on par with Mac version

    It would be great if the Widows version was on par with the Mac version instead of half a year behind.

    We are currently focused on bringing Windows to alignment with Mac and will be moving forward with new innovations afterward. Please do feel free to upvote for specific features you feel are missing so that we can contact you when they’re available!

    Thanks,

  4. Invision comes with Studio and XD are still sleeping.

    Guys are you sleeping, there comes a lot of stong competitors and your Update intervalis every two month without nice features and more Bugs. Now Invision will launch Studio and it looks great.
    I dont know what you do the last two years but the other are right behind.

  5. Please make this a viable and fully usable Adobe product, not a shell of what it could be.

    Symbols not being on Windows first release. UI Kits being left out of the same, as well as layers panel and launch screen. The fact that individual items in a symbol (for navigation and menus for example) can not be individually linked to separate places...and that option having the ability to toggle for global or individual editing... is absurd.

    The benefits for using Adobe products...are that they behave like and interact with other adobe products. So far, this is only happening an a fairly limited basis. :/

    The more I play with this...the more I'm considering buying another Mac and…

    Definitely appreciate the sentiment behind this, but I’m closing this suggestion as a general one. We’ve seen a lot of features roll in over the past two years. Please do upvote ideas that are specific to your needs so that we can better prioritize!

  6. Digital Ad Prototypes

    I've been looking for a tool like this to prototype digital ads. I love that I can both import from PS and AI and publish to html for sharing. To make digital ads, we'd need:

    + More animation options
    + Animated objects
    + Linked .psd and .ai files (so I can apply features in AI or PS and just use XD for prototyping

    Not essential but helpful:
    + For others to be able to comment on the html prototypes

    Thanks!!

    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:

    I will close this request to keep our feature list tidy, but please feel free to file new individual UserVoice suggestions for any other ideas that we may have missed. Thanks for your feedback!

  7. Love it! Please keep going!

    I adore this effort! Thank you so much.
    Will definitely more features to be able to convert from other software to XDCC. A lot of them mentioned in the feedback from other users, but just to name a few: better text styling, symbols, importing color palettes and assets from illustrator and photoshop, rulers, responsive design (if you do this well, you'll rule over all digital design tools)

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! We’ll definitely keep on going. :)

    I’m marking this as action-required; we’d love for you to either file these as separate issues inside UserVoice or simply upvote them so that we can aggregate individual feature feedback. This gives us a better view of what our community as a whole would love to see next!

    Thanks,

  8. Save Notifications

    Please integrate some kind of visible save notification. The beta version took several seconds to save my 50MB file, but the latest release appears to do this instantly, but I don't really think that the process has sped up that much. I find myself clicking several times on the save button just to be save that my work was actually saved.

  9. Add critical features to Mac version then focus on Windows

    I see that you've been updating the Windows version to bring it to par with the Mac version. But can you first add some critical features to the Mac version before going full-steam on the Windows?

    This way we'll at least have one platform with a strong set of basic features:

    a) Non-scrollable elements to fix a header or footer.
    b) Show/hide elements so that I can emulate a drop-down menu or a popup window without creating countless Artboards and super complex links.

    These features are on our roadmap already, so you should upvote them separately to let us know you’re interested. We’re working on ensuring that we can deliver on both platforms going forward, and there won’t be that much longer to wait until you see new features on Mac.

  10. Indicate when the project is being saved visually

    Sometime the autosave doesn't work so I started always saving, but then I don't know if I actually saved the project so I have to check if the Save in the File menu is deactivated, it would be nice to have a bar in the bottom that shows a message or a progressing bar to know that your project is being saved.

  11. Native OS X UI when possible

    I've noticed that Adobe is trying to use more custom UI elements in it's products which I actually find make them harder - not easier - to use. Products like Sketch have found a real following by using the UI elements and paradigms provided by the operating system. I think XD should use more of the OS UI so that it would feel like other apps that I use and be able to have updated UI styles as the OS is updated over time.

    The options for setting the upper footnote are very missing in the text editing tools.

    Thanks for filing this! As I mentioned in my last note, you should be able to view all shortcuts either in a context menu or while hovering over features that have shortcuts. If you’re still having problems, please do let us know!

    We’re really looking for individual features you think would make XD a better product. Are there specific features you like from UXPin that you think you’re missing? Please let us know which ones you think are the most useful!

  15. Things In Which XD Is lacking.

    I am using Adobe XD from Last two weeks and I found that some basic features are missing in this tool even these features are available in Photoshop and AI(previous design tools of Adobe). So, I would like to mention some of them.

    1. No way to export CSS attributes from Design specs, It is too painful for a developer to develop UI without it, Please add this feature ASAP.

    2. Can't save whole UI Screens as PDF.

    3. Blending Options are missing.

    4. Can't add border radius on editable paths.

    5. Basic shapes are missing(hexagons/octagons or stars only rectangle…

    Thank you so much for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you submit one suggestion per ticket, as it helps us to be able to merge things in with other similar suggestions. Thankfully, most of your suggestions are already in the database. For instance:

  17. Mouse scrolling around canvas maybe too sensitive.

    When I scroll left,right,up and down it feels very sensitive and perhaps a little jerky when moving around the canvas.

  19. Home Screen

    The Home Screen really is of little use if it's not customisable..

    * Why is "Explore the basics." present after extensive use? Should it not be dismissible?
    * The preset list does not remember the last choice. If I am constantly selecting iPone 6 Plus, why does it always fallback to iPhone X?
    * The same goes for Custom Size. If you cant save presets, at least maybe it could remember the last value?
    * Under "Your Work" why is there no Creative Cloud Files?
    * Should be able to drag a folder there for quick access to your Projects.
