    Greetings:

    When I load those IP addresses it takes me to the Adobe XD home page in adobe.com It sounds like adobe.com is being blocked.

    According to this doc, it looks like you should have access to Creative Cloud service https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/products/creativecloud/cc/pdfs/cc-availability-matrix.pdf

    I’ll follow up on my end and see if I can find out further info.

    Thanks!

  2. 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!

  3. Creating Design System& Style Guidelines

    Hi,

    I have been using Adobe XD almost one and half year on product development, so I have seen lots of reference & Materials Guides which are only supporting Sketch & Figma, But i couldn't find for XD. I thought its still developing

    And I Congralute the Adobe XD team for Bug fixing and Release Update

    Now my idea is to create design system which need to generate design system based on color, fonts, buttons, etc which need to links with option while creating design

    Just a idea of Placement: is to place like two option Design, Prototype (replaced Invision…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Export style sheet for developers

    Dev gets confused about what styles are what. I thought the XD Share for Dev link would have the styles in the sidebar, but there are none. I even have a master document with all of my assets: fonts, colors, and elements. Now I have to go back in and manually annotate what fonts are connected to what styles.. It would be a small addition, but would be super great in striving to better communicate with my dev team. Thank you for your consideration!

  9. 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.

  10. Visible scroll bar in design spec

    There is no scroll bar visible in the page for the prototype when I look at a design spec in the web browser. I have a decent mouse but scrolling all the way to the bottom requires a lot of work for no apparent reason.

    A visual scrollbar of the type that is in every other webapp and webpage that I have ever used would make the specs a lot easier to work with.

  11. 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.

  12. em unit in design specs

    Having 'px', 'pt' and 'dp' as size unit is good but we need to use 'em' most commonly as flexible and scalable relative unit. Expecting 'EM' unit to the list.

  13. Adding/Editing class names to Design Specs

    Ability to add/edit the class name to elements for developers.

    Possible Solution
    - Adding the ability to show layer name. Therefore I can write out the class name.
    - Adding Dev notes for designers to add additional information to design specs. This help developers drive better consistence for end product if using an existing design system.

  14. Define artboard order in the Design Spec using the Z-order of the artboards

    The artboards order should be determined by the order of artboards In the XD app, complex setups and groupings do not work well with the automatic
    left to right , top to bottom approach. It works well for simple setups

    Not ones that include 30+ pages, this approach causes more problems then the time it attempts to save

  15. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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
