  1. Export assets from design specs (we need a better way)

    There needs to be a better way or an alternative way to download assets from the design specs for developers. Right now, you would have to set each asset on each page to be able to be downloaded. This works great for a single page, but when you have a ton of pages representing either different states or different parts of the flow, it's hard to remember or even know which page you can download which asset from.

    Most assets that get used are made into symbols, so it would be great to be able to set the symbols to…

  3. Assets zip download in design specs

    Please give option to download zip file of all assets. Now developer have to download it one by one so it takes too much time.

  4. Ability to view guides in Design Specs

    This is extremely important, almost as important as bringing back the old Design Specs flow which you took away for no logical reason.

  5. Rename component in icon view

    currently, you can only rename a component in list view. This should also be available in icon view

  6. Define sections for Design Specs (organization)

    A better way to create sections for screens like Invision and Zeplin.
    Current way is making it difficult for developers to track down screens.

  7. Separate page to view all downloadable assets in Design Specs

    Edited: I'd like to see all downloadable assets in Design Specs, because sometimes I have assets that are repeated across multiple artboards.

    Original: It's possible to see all assets in all artboards in one click

  9. Select platform in Design Specs on the web, not on publish

    I see that now the design specs allows the developers to extract design assets. Totally cool! Good job!

    One problem is that right now I have to mark my design spec specifically for one platform (ios, android or web). But sometimes we designers club those in one single file as separate group of artboards for simplicity. In such situations this feature is a problem. Both android and ios developers are using the same design spec, but only one of them can extract the assets.

    I would suggest to remove the platform selection option while publishing and provide platform selection to…

  10. See file/layer structure in design specs

    As an added feature, similar to what Avacode and Sympli provide, it would be nice to display the layers panel in design spec mode. The user can select a layer and it will highlight in the document art board.

  11. Overview of styles for entire Design Spec

    It is not easy to manage all the colors and styles in a design in XD

    There is no overall design specs for all artboards in the design specs nor in XD, making it hard to review all design styles in 1 place.
    Colors and Character Styles in assets can't be use as style guide/ in app design specs, the current version is not favoring this function

    Something similar to this suggestion is needed but with more function

  12. Rectangular Marquee Measurement Tool

    A tool that allowed me to make rectanular measurements would be useful. It could behave like the selecting marquee tools in PS.

    https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/selecting-marquee-tools.html

    This would be valuable because it would quickly give more specs to parts of the mockup that are not always XD elements. For example, if there was part of a mockup that was a screenshot, the XD measurement tools are not as accurate. Also is helpful for finding sizes of invisible containers. This would allow developers to freely grab measurements quickly for anything on the page.

    Thank you!

  13. Show pasteboard text in design specs

    When I publish design specs (Share - Share for development) the text that I have outside art boards gets excluded. I have text to label different sections in the userflow, like headlines. When I share the same files for collaboration (Share - Invite to edit) the text is included. It would be nice if the text outside the art boards could be included in design specs as well, that way the developers can get the same information and understand the userflow.

  14. ink tool

    I would like to be able to ink (freehand draw using my wacom/other pen) my concepts and annotations.

    I know that there are some good work arounds like https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/20399002-workaround-for-annotations-in-design-and-preview-m but inking with arrows would be faster and more useful for me.

    I also know that some touch / pen features were implemented in https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17431225-pen-and-touch-support-in-windows-10 but this is a specific extra tool using pen.

    The tool could be used to draw directly on the artboard, or on a toggle-able annotation layer per artboard.
    The inking could extend outside the artboard as necessary but would be associated with the artboard as part…

  15. Design Spec Mode selecting inline multiple fonts, symbols or elements

    If I use a symbol font like Font Awesome and paste that into a text box with another font for my regular paragraph copy, my developers can't isolate and get the CSS, Fonts, Colors, etc. from the inline symbols or separate fonts. Would be nice to have a way to select a text container and toggle through the different fonts represented. Or click again to select a specific symbol or element in the text area and target that for getting specs on.

  16. Display component names in development prototype

    When you develop a design system in XD the structure of your components should be visible in the specs panel of your development prototype.
    If you build sensible components in XD with a clear naming scheme you can communicate a lot of context to the developer.
    In order to collaborate effectively teams should aim to share class or tag names between prototype and frontend code.

  17. Increase scroll speed in design spec one-up view

    In the https://xd.adobe.com/spec/xyz-xyz../screen/xyz-xyz... screens, I regularly read a design that spans about 2 to 5 pages or screenfuls. Scrolling this in Google Chrome with a regular basic corded logitech mouse is slow. Scrolling to the next page takes 2 or 3 full scroll motions on the physical scroll wheel.

    Scrolling through five pages consequently takes 10 to 20 scroll motions. This is unusable. Any other webpage has a reasonable scroll speed with my computer settings and hardware.

    There also is not a draggable scroll-bar handle like on every other application that I have ever used on a computer. Why?

  18. Prioritize color names over hex values in Design Spec

    Small detail, but as we define design system elements, the names of those elements are more important than the technical value.

    In this case, for colors, the name of the color asset is more important than the hex value. Please swap the display of those values to reflect the importance...or provide the ability to turn that hex value off since, in some cases, developers should only be referencing the name anyway.

  19. More Units for CSS snippets

    More options for the units in the CSS snippets, both for text and other objects. For example em, %, vw and other CCS units used for responsive web design.

  20. Copy/export all colours from assets as Hex, RGBA, HSLA

    It would be very useful to be able to grab all the colour values as text in one go.
    To copy and paste into our SCSS or CSS.

    Could be a download or copy all.

    The shared assets in the Share for Development web pages are great. When it comes to the Colors, currently we can grab the Hex, RGBA, HSLA colours one at a time. I frequently want to grab all the colours.

    Code editors help designers see the colours, we don't need to do the colours one at a time to know which is which.
