  1. Xamarin/and or Firebase plug-in

    My devs are using Xamarin. It would be nice to share my file with them in a way that makes it quicker for them to code my prototype. This might be dumb but I thought I might as well ask.

  2. Adjust design specs background

    Most of our assets are white as we have a dark background on our app and this makes the asset view in dev mode totally useless.

    Please give use a darker colour or allow us to pick one that works for us.
    Alternatively give us a list view option with label names so we can see what we are doing.

  3. Reduce the header & footer on the shared Development files.

    The huge header and footer (ESPECIALLY THE FOOTER) on the bottom of the display area of a shared Development (export for Web) mockup is ridiculous. PLEASE reduce it significantly!

    WHY is are the header and footer so huge? We're not trying to show-off Adobe XD. The Software Engineers I work with could care less about Adobe XD! They want to see a spec'd mockup that they can use. I'm trying to show-off a mockup and most of the screen is taken up by useless, space-hogging Adobe XD stuff.

  4. Sort design tokens the way it's arranged in the assets panel

    The Design Tokens feature is a welcome and useful addition.
    However I was surprised, that the colors did appear in a completely random order in the stylesheet. I had intentionally sorted them in my assets panel.

    I mean sorting them alphabetically would have been a conclusive choice too, but scrambling them is bad.

  5. Export SVG group as individual object

    The developer mode currently is exporting my SVGs as various individual files, although I'm grouping them in .xd file before exporting.

    This is giving me headaches, as often Developers will send e-mails requesting the images corrected to program the front-end of a webpage. This highly affects the workflow and productivity, as I have to go by every single one and export as .png.

    This happens often when I need to edit icons and vectors in XD on the fly, by adding new elements and grouping them together. Would be nice if grouping these modifications would be enough to export them…

    Thanks for reaching out. I tried this out, and this works as you expect it to. You’ll need to make sure you’re marking the group and not the contents as available for batch export in the layers panel. Then, when you publish your design spec, the group will be exported as a single SVG.

    Please let us know if this addresses your issue.

  6. Inspect the color of a downloadable SVG components in design specs

    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

  7. Remember previously selected flow view setting in Design Specs

    It would be much better if setting highlighted on the screenshot with red square would be remembered every time I open the page

  8. Ability to copy only selected content from design spec text object

    When I design, I often put several paragraphs or bulleted lists in the same text box. When I share my designs with my developer, it is difficult for him to get only the text he needs from the shared development document. When you click on the "Content" section in the right developer spec panel, it automatically copies all of the text in the box (see screenshot).

    It would be helpful if there were a way to highlight and select only a portion of the text in the content box that you could then copy using a shortcut. You could grab…

  9. Provide ability to turn off CSS section in Design Specs

    In design specs, there is a CSS section with a lot of great information. However, for some users, it is relevant and potentially harmful. It'd be great to be able to turn that section off so that it isn't displayed.

    Some examples
    Some of our products are desktop products, built in C# and XAML. CSS is not relevant for our tech stack.

    The CSS shows absolute, hardcoded values for position, size, color, etc. This is the opposite of what we want to communicate to development. They should be using relative values or referenced resources from our design system for those…

  10. Underlined text doesn't show in Design Specs

    When you copy a paragraph from specs and some of the text is underlined in the design/prototype, it would be great if the underline was copied as well?

    This could be easily left off by the developer.

  11. 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.

  12. Snapshots of web pages for inspiration

    It would be nice if people could enter in a web page URL of a page that inspires them from anywhere on the net, then click a simple button that snaps a full page image for quick importing of that page into XD, then shows the dimensions or at least it makes it easy to measure the exact dimensions that the original developer used within the page. This will help people learn from other designers creations because learning their layouts and dimensions cand be a tricky task sometimes.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  15. 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;).

  16. 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).

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Scroll horizontally by holding shift

    When holding shift and rotating the mouse wheel, I'd like the canvas to move horizontally, just like Figma does.
