      • Option to publish all screens even without prototyping

        If I started prototyping and publish design specs without the prototype linking all the screens the design spec shows only the screens that are linked in the prototype. The specs link doesn't get updated even if I remove all the links.

        • Design Specs for Enterprise customers

          I'd love to see a way for for Enterprise customers whose companies have chosen not to permit sharing to be able to take advantage of the Design Specs feature. We need a way to export a local file that shows the specs that we can share on our internal, private networks. Without this, your largest customers are still left drawing design specs by hand.

          • Single link for design specs and prototype

            Great to see design specs working! Will add some ideas for it here. The first of them is:

            As a designer, I need to send to developers a link with the working prototype and another with the design specs. Would be great if I could share a single link and design specs and prototype worked as tabs on that page.

            • PDF design specs

              We need to be able to output design specs to PDF - not all of our clients can access the design specs URLs due to security constraints on their networks so being able to email static PDF design specs is essential to what we do.

              • Allow (SCSS, SASS, LESS) variable names for Color in Specs Doc

                Could you build a way to display variable names for color in the specs doc and the ability to write comments to developers?

                Also, specs doc is not accurate when displaying colors, spacing and font sizes. You can see the workaround I built to make up for this deficiency.

                • Show the layer names on design spec mode

                  When the developer clicks an element, the layer name is not shown. Today he can only see the type of that layer ("Rectangle", "Text", "Group", etc). If the layer name was shown the designers could append information on that layer like the asset name or the color variable that should be used on that element.

                  • Adobe Extract for Brackets to work with XD

                    Brackets Code Editor has good integration with PSD Files, which allows it to grab layers, colors, font details and spacing info. More on that here (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/extract-for-brackets.html)
                    I wonder whether you can work on features that allow Adobe Extract to grab data(images, font names, sizing info etc) from XD and transfer for Brackets, the same way it happens to PSD ?

                    • Assets artboard should get created automatically

                      While sharing the screens to developers on the web. Assets artboard having all the icons/images should get created automatically when all the interactions / screens are done ... and icons/images are marked as assets. This way not only developers can see all the assets at one go but also can download them instantly instead of going to multiple pages and downloading assets separately. It will make designers life easy as well.

                      • A text with multiple styles only the first one is show on design specs

                        For an example, when I have some bold text inside a paragraph, the design specs for that paragraph should state that not only that text is Arial 12px but also has some bold inside.

                        • show date of last update for each screen

                          At this time one can see "The date when the design specs was last updated"

                          When working on a living project, with constant improvements, or in general during development phase, it would be pretty handy for
                          - developers (identify what to do)
                          - testers/customers/responsible persons (what to review)
                          to easily see that there where changes on special screen since last look by showing date and time of last update for each screen.

                            • Ability to annotate parts of the designs for handing off and Pattern library for designs assets, colors,typography

                              As a UX designer, one of the most important information while handing off designs is ability to explain each component in your design. Functional annotations like ON click of this button slide this page or specify error conditions or text or color changes that occur when the user interacts with that component in your design. It would also be really helpful to have a pattern library that has colors,typography,assets,customized designs that can be used to help design and prototype faster and maintain consistency in the entire experience.

                              UXPin has a great way of annotating designs. Its a separate tab that…

                              • Package all files necessary for developer handoff

                                It would be great if you can gather the files you’ve used, including fonts and linked graphics, for easy handoff. When you package a file, you create a folder that contains the xd document, any necessary fonts, linked graphics, and a package report.
                                Like we have in Illustrator or InDesign.

                                  For people using Xamarin to develop Mobile Apps we need a Px's to Pt's conversion on the design specs. We are doing a lot of work converting those numbers when developing. Seems to me that a converter would be fairly easy.

                                    If a link update has been made by a designer to the Design Spec a slack notification automatically gets sent to a channel/user within slack with the link and the changes that have been made. e.g new artboards added etc.

                                    • word count

                                      Going from UX to UI I need to give my client a general word/character count so a copy writer can write to what the design is. Would be great to have a "show word/character count" somehow integrated. I currently copy paste everything into a word counting tool, and then document the word counts in a PDF. Super time consuming.

                                      • Export Assets library to Design Specs

                                        It would be great if the assets library in Adobe Xd be exported to the design specs. In that way developers will be able to get a general specification sheets from the designer. Designers can even create classes for each font and name the colors based on there branding standards.

                                        • Print option in the design specs

                                          It would be a great idea if there is an option to print the design specs on paper. Just like the option in Adobe Illustrator to print crop marks, in design specs we can create marks & regions of elements used it.
