  1. Wifi connectivity for XD app (not connecting only by USB cable)

    Instead of being able to connect only by a USB cable, the ability to connect via wifi. Any roadmap for this would be useful to know.

    • Animations that react to a phone's accelerometer

      In a perfect world I would like have dynamics animations on differents layers when you scroll or move the phone. It will improve a lot the possibilities of the soft.

          An update for you all – unfortunately, there are system limitations as to how we can use USB in Windows 10 / UWP. We’re still working with Microsoft to try to resolve, but this isn’t something we’ll be able to fix quickly. In the meantime, you can upload to the Creative Cloud and load the file in your mobile application that way.

        • Embed fonts for 'untethered' mobile preview from Creative Cloud

          Would be nice if fonts were embedded into the XD file. If not you aren't able to preview the app design with the correct font from iOS or android when syncing from creative cloud.

          • Apple Watch Preview App

            Apple watch Adobe XD app (that runs on Apple watch watch).
            Wouldn't require many additional features compared to its iPhone counterpart.

            - Support for 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch sized artboards within Adobe XD (desktop)
            - Support for linked objects/hotspots within the watch previewer app
            - Transition effects visible within the watch previewer app
            - Close prototype by using force touch within the watch previewer app
            - Support for fixed headers

            • XD Mobile App shouldn't require CC Login

              Currently the XD mobile app requires you to log in with a CC account.

              If the phone is attached via USB, it would be nice if you can view the selected artboards in XD w/o being forced to signing in first.

              This will help for teams that share various testing devices so that they dont need to constantly sign in/out of each device they use.

              • Save all prototypes locally on device

                Actually, the app stores just the last prototype. Please keep all prototypes on device, in a simple list, always available and organizable.

                  Thanks for your feedback. We definitely have this feature in the roadmap. Soon, you’ll be able to manage XD documents stored in CC Files from mobile (search, list, delete) & toggle to save specific projects for offline viewing.

                • Add some basic editing features for mobile app

                  Hope to see some basic editing features for mobile app. This could be really helpful for prototyping.

                  • Locate & Open Prototypes in Creative Cloud Mobile App

                    Actually, it would be nice to have access to all the prototypes through the CC mobile app.

                    Now, when I'm on smartphone you have to go to the assets.adobe.com and find them there. But assets.adobe.com is not user friendly on mobile.

                      In the future, you’ll be able to access your Web Prototypes published from Adobe XD on desktop, from your mobile app.

                      But today, if you need to access XD documents (with just designs or with prototypes) from your device. If you place your XD documents in your CC Files folder on desktop, you can now load them from Adobe XD on mobile. Make sure you have your document saved and synced in your CC Files folder on desktop, then open Adobe XD on your mobile device. Tap on the folder icon and choose “XD Document from Creative Cloud”, or if you’re viewing an XD document, long press and tap on “Open XD Document > XD Document from Creative Cloud”. What’s interesting here is that we have a full version of Adobe XD running on the mobile device to open each XD document.

                        I am in China right now and try to preview my design on my iphone, however, it doesn't support to download XD mobile app with my current apple ID.

                        • Option to scale design in live preview to match phone width

                          At my agency we don't necessarily design at the exact dimensions of the phone we preview with. This results in pillarboxing (a black border around the entire screen). For example, we will create pixel perfect grids that make our workflow much faster, but it makes the screen size something like 360px wide. When previewed on an iPhone 6/6s/7, which has 375px dimensions, there is a border around the screen.

                          Adding an option to scale the design to match your device's width would solve the problem.

                          • XD Mobile App: 'Refresh' current document

                            The XD iOS preview app should have a 'refresh' function.

                            I've had the app lose connection several times, and not update even though I am still editing the document.

                            A 'refresh' function could re-connect to the currently open document and reload the changes made since the last update.

                            • Disable swiping on mobile prototype

                              Please provide an option to disable swiping between artboards during the Live Preview on the Adobe XD iOS app. I want testers on the mobile app to only be able to navigate using the interactions I've authored. Them being able to swipe at any time prevents me from getting a valid test out of them.

                              • Performance very bad on iPad app

                                We're a team of designers and developers and I'm using XD as it's super speedy, works across platforms, and the prototyping performs really damn well.

                                One of the major frustrations is how long it takes to open documents on the XD iPad app.

                                I'm working in a 23MB XD file, and opening it on an iPad (the version released in 2017) easily takes 3-4 minutes. We have 6 iPads and a few iPhones, and it's the same on all of them.

                                I'm not sure if it's your servers, or if it's the app, but this performance is unbelievably slow. The…

                                • Open XD files on iOS through Files app and Dropbox (not just creative cloud)

                                  I would love to be able to open XD files from other sources than Creative Cloud. At work we use Dropbox as our source of truth. It would be great to browse Dropbox or Files app on the iPad (and iPhone) and retrieve the prototype for testing it on a device. As for now I need to make a duplicate of my file and move it to Adobe CC to find it, it’s quite tedious.

                                  I´m not talking about tethering, only being able to access files outside of Creative Cloud.

                                  • Allow sign-in from multiple AdobeIDs on mobile XD

                                    Since you can only activate 2 devices per Adobe ID, I have two of them: One for private use at home and one from where I work.

                                    I however only have one cellphone and I do not plan on carrying two about all the time.

                                    This leaves me with following problem: I would have to sign out and in all the time to view my different projects.

                                    Since this is more of a hassle than just connecting my phone to my PC using a cable I basically never use the whole wireless thingy when I am at work, which is…

                                    • Indicate which artboard is currently active on mobile device in XD window

                                      When users have their mobile device tethered to their machine via USB and are viewing a prototype on that device, as the user traverses through screens it would be helpful to indicate on the computer on the XD canvas which dartboard is currently being shown on the mobile device.

                                      This would be to help track screen flow as you click through a complex prototype.

                                        • Put the prototype as an app on the mobile screen

                                          Save the prototype cell phone screen as if it were really an app and share it with anyone you want. Marvel has this option.
