  1. Protopie Export - Retain Element Types

    Not sure if this is something XD would do or Protopie.

    Currently when exporting to Protopie there are no options aside from which artboards to send. When the elements come over they are all flattened to bitmap images. Protopie seems to have almost the exact same element types as XD but they currently do not link to one another and there is no option to select bitmap or text/editable vector. This is great for text since it means users won't need to have the fonts installed to view the prototype correctly on mobile. But it is a serious issue when…

  2. Adding ID to views and elements

    I'm doing an app and i'm getting a lot of views. It would be great if we could add an ID to views/elements and write somewhere (a console maybe ?) something like "for each view that contains this ID, add this button" or "change the background color".
    I think it would makes us gain a lot of time.
    It could be a feature for those who know how to code ? Or something simpler that everyone could use without coding.

    Thanks for reading !

  3. Integration with Illustrator Symbols

    Would love to see an integration with Adobe Illustrator Symbols!
    Will give the users an easier way to work and export directly from AI symbol panel

  5. Adobe XD for Jira

    We are interested in using the Adobe XD for Jira add-in. However when installed it is present on every Jira project. Jira is widely used inside our company for many software development and reliability projects.

    We would like to use the add-in only on GUI development projects were we are also using Adobe XD, would it be possible for you to update the add-in to enable this?

  6. After Effects Integration: Groups should be imported as compositions

    When exporting to After effects the xd pages are split into layers in After Effects but the grouping seems to be lossed. This has meant that it is difficult to find the correct layers and groups. It would be ideal if groups in XD were changed into compositions in after effects with the layers for each group held within.

  7. Jira integration is not sufficient

    Now I can only link a full prototype / design spec to a jira issue.
    Our workflow is to (deep)link specific screens from that prototype to a single ticket as the scope of the issue is only a part of the prototype.

    Or is there a workaround?

    This is an important feature to make the Jira integration useful for us.
    I'm using Jira Server in my organisation.

  9. JIRA: Preview of an artboard for artboard link, not of main artboard

    Same problem for integrations in Slack and Jira integrations' previews

    If I am adding or sharing Adobe XD link of a concrete artboard in some project, e.g.:
    https://xd.adobe.com/view/PROJECTID/screen/ARTBOARDID/
    then preview usually is generated not for this concrete artboard that i am sharing, but for the main artboard of the whole project

    So in fact it generates for me this link preview:
    https://xd.adobe.com/view/PROJECTID/

    This is completely illogical, when e.g. in Jira I create a task to implement concrete subpage, but then Adobe XD generates me every time the main page preview...

  11. Plugins Tutorial

    Because there are so many XD Plugins, for better user experience, it'd be great when every plugin's developer provide a tutorial on how to use the plugin. The tutorial is to save designer time and effort to figure out how is the plugin works, but try them one by one.

  12. After Effects Export - Grouped paths as single shape layer

    When sending files to After Effects, add ability for paths that are grouped together to come in as a single shape layer, instead of multiple parented shape layers.

  13. Integration of Overflow plugin

    Please provide to the Overflow plugin the prototyping links.
    Other tools just do that.

    Without this feature we have to redesign all the navigation.
    Thanks

  14. Alternate Input API

    My work involves a lot of non-traditional input devices. From gamepads to custom industrial controllers. Being able to develop middleware on my end and communicate with, let's say, a websocket API into XD would allow for much wider usage at our studio.

    Ex. Websockets, UDP or TCP to control prototype interaction.

  15. Live publish

    It would do well to all of us if we could connect our projects to an existing domain address and have it LIVE.
    I believe that this feature would be most appreciated by everyone since it allows us to be able to create a website or app the way we want and then be able to put it LIVE right away.

  17. Import shadow properties from Adobe Illustrator

    When I copy an element from Illustrator to Experience Design, the shadow effects are not imported, making a transparent box with nothing.

  18. Asset type definition

    I'm not what most would consider a Pro user but I've always loved and supported Adobe's application integration (the 'edit with' submenu, smart object, linked item, etc.) So maybe a nice implementation with the eventual integrations with 'send to Muse', or 'convert to Illustrator artboards', etc. might be:

    Upon importing an asset or making a symbol, since these may be simply placeholders for actual assets, would be to have the ability to give them a definition of 'type'. This could be a variety of things but if you're prototyping a spot for a carousel but the content isn't yet made…

  19. Create JIRA issue from XD annotation

    We'd like the ability to create a JIRA issue directly from an annotation point in XD so that the prototype/design is linked to its implementation work in JIRA.

    My workaround right now is to call out the numeric annotations within the description of a specific JIRA issue but I think this could be improved by a link between the two.
