      Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one request in each entry, not multiple. As Joan mentioned, we recently shipped blur effects.

      Please feel free to upvote the following for your other requests:
      Microinteractions (for your push request): https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12869229-animate-individual-elements-separately-custom-ani
      Scissor tool/slice: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13712892-scissor-tool-slice-vector-path

      I’ll file a separate story to track the FTP request and add the original poster as a voter.

      Thanks,

      -Elaine

    • Import from other Adobe tools

      You already have powerful design tools. Hence, please don't try to re-invent the wheel by providing a 'Design' tab. The right direction for Adobe to go would be to just enhance the current prototyping ability by just letting people import design from other tools from your suite. Currently it breaks really badly when you copy/paste stuff between tools and is quite painful.

      • Good import for easier migrating to the platform

        What is also crucial whenever a new platform comes is a transition to that platform. What if I have 100+ files in .psd or .ai or .sketch and I really like the new XD platform. That's almost 100% chance. For now, no platform have at least average solution for that. I have files in .ai but I want my team to migrate to .psd or .sketch... and it's time consuming mechanistic manual monkey job.

        It would be great and ease the transition if XD will have:
        – Import to XD from .psd, .ai, .sketch with all the artboards
        – Import…

          There are several different requests here, and I think a bunch of them are already tracked as their own individual suggestions:

          Please upvote any of those that you need, so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.

          You can already bring content into XD from all three of these tools by copy-pasting individual elements/layers. Some of the issues listed in the original request here seem to be related to poor fidelity or other problems when importing content this way. If you’re hitting issues like that, could you please file a new UserVoice bug report with as much detail as possible? Ideally, please share screenshots or even an actual AI/PSD/Sketch file that shows the problem.

          Thanks!

          XD is very optimisation tool like Sketch but Vector Editor no one can beat Adobe illustrator in XD we need like that so soothing vector editors (path finders)

          • Shadows lost when copying from Illustrator

            When i copy an artboard in from illustrator into xd, shadows get lost and are not imported. That style should be carried over instead of having to recreate it in xd

            • (Near) Seamless Integrations

              Think about it - Xd+Dw, Mu, Ps, etc. I am not talking about all in one (Although, that would be extremely awesome!). In Comp, we have the ability to "Send to InDesign." We should be able to, by the click of a button, send a project (with all layers editable) to other programs that have the ability build websites, UI's, etc.

              • Select all in common

                Referring to Premiere Pro, it would be good to have an option to Select all clips with a certain aspect in common.

                Similar to the "Select all Matching" function, which allows you to select one clip and then find all other clips that are from the same source file. "Select all in common" would allow you to match clips based on different commonalities.

                For example, you would choose "Select all in common" and it would take you to a pop up window with different options, such as "Effects" "Label" "Length" etc.

                So I could select "Effects", and in there would…

                • Lock Aspect Ratio of Shapes Made Using the Drawing Tool - PDF X-Change Editor

                  Allow user to lock aspect ratio of a shape user has drawn so that when the scale needs to be changed, the shape proportions remain constant. I outline the shapes of land parcels using PDF X-Change Editor and the shape goes wonky when I try to reduce the size. This feature is built into Microsoft Word where you create the shape and then check a box to lock the aspect ratio. As you can tell, I am not a tech person, so I am trying to describe this in real life words.

                    As we haven’t heard from you in three months, I’m closing this as inactive. Please note that this was filed in the Adobe XD features database, not the Acrobat features database.

                  • Make options for Windows

                    This software will never be really enjoyable for Windows users until you ADD ALL THE FUNCTIONALITY TO OUR SIDE. For now it feels easier to design in Illustrator. Stop building out the Apple version and work on building the Windows version already.

                      I know it’s frustrating. We’re building on a very new version of the Windows platform (UWP), and when things are very new sometimes they take a little longer than expected.

                      We are very actively working on Windows support in XD. To help us prioritize that support though, we need you to upvote the specific individual features you are missing on Windows (rather than just filing an “everything” request like this one). For example:

                      - Zeplin integration on Windows: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/33045610-zeplin-integration-on-windows
                      - Preview window recording: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/18890884-record-video-from-preview-window-on-windows-like (though note the Windows-G shortcut lets you do screen recording in any app on Windows 10!)
                      - Live mobile device preview: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/17453770-tethered-usb-mobile-device-preview-on-windows

                    • Audio account storage.

                      I am offering a 'self-help' teaching for the voice. Client needs feedback on progress.

                          Thanks for your feedback! UserVoice works best if you file each one of your suggestions separately so that we can help merge them correctly. That being said, some of your suggestions already exist and can be upvoted.

                        • More tool such as Photoshop

                          I'd like to have more tool and options that I usually find in Photoshop such as using gradients, creating styles and text styles. Most of all I'd like to create guide lines and guide lines layout, so that I could create my project only in Adobe XD.

                          Thanks.
