  1. slack integration

    For my team, this would be much better than just a dedicated in-tool comment system for getting feedback as this would make my prototypes more accessible to the whole team and company without the need for me to specifically send the link to select individuals.

    • Copy vector art from Illustrator

      I can't find this exact feature request so I thought I would request it here. Is it possible to build XD so that any Adobe Illustrator artwork can be pasted into it?

      Photoshop has this ability so I'm continuing to use Photoshop for app design, however, Sketch has some nice features over Photoshop but it's inability to accept even the most simple compound shapes from Illustrator make it virtually unusable for serious design. If preventing users from switching permanently to Sketch is on Adobe's radar, I think y'all should get Illustrator objects compatibility going. It'll be the clincher to ensure…

        Hi, all-

        I’m trying to consolidate a number of the Illustrator issues into one list to work against, as the various requests seem to be all over the forum. I’ve started with James’ specific list below, and would like to hear back as to what other specific features are not importing correctly from Illustrator 2017.

        • Pixel dimensions not aligning
        • Support for dotted lines
        • Support for rounded stroke
        • Text is broken up into individual lines

        Are there additional things you’ve hit that you’d like us to address?

        -Elaine

      • Wacom Tablet issues on Mac

        It is very easy to navigate the Xd interface with a magic mouse or touch pad however when I am working with my Wacom (which is often) I loose some of the functionality such as zooming and being able to move around the interface with a 'hand' tool option 'H' like in Illustrator and Photoshop. If one of the artboard falls off the screen/interface, I am unable to simply drag the view to accomodate the artboard. If I am using the Wacom I have to go to the magnification setting in the upper left hand of the interface which is…

          Please note that the Wacom tablet on Windows only is considered a pen experience, which is not yet supported on the canvas. You should be able to select the tools along the side and interact with XD in the property inspector. We’re working on that particular experience.

          However, I’d like to keep this open to be able to talk about what specific issues Mac users are experiencing. Please do add these in the comments!

          Thanks,

          -Elaine

        • Drag n drop SVG from a browser

          In Sketch 3 I can just drag n drop any SVG from browser (e.g. from http://www.flaticon.com ). But I can't do it in XD. Instead now I have to download file on my computer, than find this and drag file from Finder.

              • Simply make XD full Adobe CC ecosystem friendly...

                Well... after trying many times XD and giving up frustrated after every try, I’ve reached some thoughts about why its still unusable for my “particular” user experience:

                1. I’ve been doing user interface mock-ups with Illustrator for at least a decade, so my skills are focused on be productive with it and import image assets from Photoshop when needed. Then, I haven’t time to face a learn curve on a new design tool. I want to keep using Illustrator.

                2. Being an Adobe CC long time user, I’ve grown with a deep understanding of Adobe CC ecosystem. Each program cooperates…

                  Thanks for your feedback.

                  1) Our intent is for you to be able to still use Illustrator. We can now open Illustrator files, so you can design in Illustrator, bring your designs over to XD, and then add in motion using our Prototype mode.

                  2) You can use Creative Cloud Libraries to update your linked assets across documents. If auto update images is something you’re interested in, there is a feature request in this database you can upvote. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109

                  3) It sounds like you’re interested in dark mode, there’s a feature request for that as well. Over time, you’ll see both Illustrator and XD moving to a more universal design system. Hopefully that will help! https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12940362

                  Please let us know if you have specific requests beyond those two above.

                • Support for Invision Inspect Mode

                  I would like to be able to export files from XD to Invision use Invision's 'Inspect Mode' to view object attributes, css snippets etc, which would aid in front-end development immensely. Thanks.

                    • Dynamic content hosted outside of XD

                      It would be awesome if we could ensure design files and copy docs were in sync as copy changes are made. What if there was a google sheet that could serve as the copy source of truth and any changes were synchronized. Or you could make copy changes in XD as you lay things out and synch those changes with a copy file of some kind. https://www.contentsync.io/ and https://kopie.io/ are two tools that are thinking about this problem in different ways. Maybe there is room in XD for something like this?
