  1. Expand design spec inspector by default

    I'd like to be able to choose to have the property inspector already open in development view. It would save having to describe how to click on the icon to engineers every time.

  2. 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.

  3. Hide "Fixed position" layers to see design specs of other layers beneath them

    Layers that have been set to "Fix position when scrolling" often overlap over other key layers and block the inspection of the layers underneath.

    For example, if you have a mobile screen with a bottom fixed menu then this layer will need to be positioned on top of the 0-viewport. This results in any other layers in body below this bottom tab layer becoming invisible in design and design specs mode. And the developer cannot see any of their details.

    So a way to hide these layers in the design specs mode will be of great help.

  4. Design specs for single artboards

    Whenever I make a change to my document of a multitude of artboards the system "renders trough" the whole document with all artboards altough I have only made changes to a couple of them. Would be nice if we could update them selectively, that way the process of updating the design specs would be shorter. Right now the process gets longer and longer as the document grows.

  5. Layout grid: show borders in the design specs (like in the XD file it self)

    When in the design specs the layout grid should look the same as in XD it self.

    I'm working on 20 column grid with no gutter, but it turns out that the border you see in XD, you don't see that in the design specs. Result: a turquoise background for the developer with no reference ;-)

    I could work around it (10 column grid with gutters and setting a side margin), but I would need to do that across the entire project.

  6. Boxed Text with different size and colors within are not being able to be distinguished in designs specs given to developers

    While working developers where not able to get information on size of text or color in a boxed text which had a different size and color ontop then the bottom part. Is there a way where probably a developer would be able to highlight text in a targeted area to get character style and color?

  7. Click the label and copy the hex color code as a simple code snippet

    Currently you can see the hex color code and copy to your clipboard (i.e. #ffffff). To save a step in programming, it would be nice to copy a code snippet instead (i.e. background-color: #f0f0f0;).

  8. Character styles—order by size, color, weight (similar to Zeplin)

    I think it would be helpful if the Character Styles were listed in groups in order of the font that has the largest size. Since devs are usually programming things by defining the biggest to smallest (H1 > H2 > H3 > P), this would help us to see what we're up against. Next, if we added in a second font weight with a variety of colors, we would collect by the size-1st, color-2nd and weight-3rd (favoring the lighter weight to be listed first).

  10. Publish Design Spec on Save

    Design Specs have quickly become an integral part of our workflow. It would be incredibly helpful if there was an option on Save that would allow you to Publish a Design Spec at the same time, thereby making it so every time the designer saves, the developer can have updated Design Specs.

  11. Customize HEX color code rules in Design Specs

    When I copy HEX color codes to clipboard in Design Specs, I can get the color code like this:

    FF12BF

    FFFFFF

    But, sometimes I want to get the color code like this:

    ff12bf

    ffffff

    Or like this:

    ff12bf

    fff

    Or like this:

    FF12BF

    FFF

    So, I want to choose HEX color code rules in Design Specs.
    I think that engineers will support XD by responding to various coding rules.

  12. Convert Paths to Images

    I sometimes Illustrate directly in Adobe XD, please allow us to Rasterize or Select which Paths should be downloable for developers. I spent too much time manually exporting paths

  13. Delete all unresolved comments.

    I have very old comments that might have been resolved before, but i can't delete or find out where are the comments, there is no way to delete or resolve this comments, clicking on them it gets me to the wrong artboard and I can't replicate the actions to make this comments appear, either give us the option to delete this comments or improve the display of this comments inside components.

  14. Preview graphic on the sidebar when clicking on an element on the artboard

    Sometimes designers forget to name their layers and hand them off via the design spec sheet. It would be nice to be able to see a preview of the graphic on the specs sidebar when you click it on the artboard.

    For example I click an image on the artboard, and the spec sidebar it tells me that i've clicked on Group 114, but I'm not exactly sure if it's the graphic that I need because it's a grouped layer. I know I can right click to view layers, but it would just a be a whole lot more convenient…

  15. Preview feature in Design Specs

    It would be nice to be able to see a preview on the sidebar of the element that you clicked from the main artboard. That would make it just quicker for devs to download what they need, especially when clicking on layers that are buried beneath other layers. I know you can right click and select the layer you need, but sometimes layers aren't named properly, and it'll just be a great quality of life improvement to be able to preview what you are clicking on the main artboard. Most design spec platforms already have this feature.

  16. Code snippets for buttons in default and hover states

    Is there a way to view code snippets for buttons in their default and hover states when a prototype is shared with developers?

  17. Jump to artboard in design spec

    I am a developer and our designer publishes multiple art boards. I often have to job from board to board. It would be really helpful to be able to access the other boards quickly without having to back out of the current board. Maybe even an optional filter that can sort by recently opened.

  18. I want to be able to inspective the color of a downloadable SVG components

    Our UI kit and pixel perfect pages reuse single core components like icons throughout but they might appear in different colours.
    However when those components are also downloadable marked for export as (which we would like them to be) they can no longer be inspected for colour.

    Can you include colour in the inspection UI properties for downloadable assets please - we only need to be download assets once but want to inspect the colours for various states quickly in XD

  19. Toggle to view fixed padding specs

    Fixed padding is great! Similar to the ability to view the layout grid columns, the ability to view the fixed padding universally could be helpful.

  20. Control which asset types are available in design specs

    Hello Adobe i work with a TI team, we produce different types of websites. Developers in my team often ask me to send them images in specific formats, and sizes to optimize web`s performance. It would be great to have control of what extensions (.jpg, .png, .svg) are displayed in the download dropdown (picture send).

    As the designer of the team i would like to hand the developers the files just as they need. I hope you found this comment useful !
