  1. Improved text underline

    Thanks for adding underline text to the latest release of XD. I really appreciate the fact that you're still adding features like this. I've had a bit of a play with the underline text tool and have a few refinements that would make it more powerful.

    1) Allow for custom line weight. Currently the line is just the same weight, no matter the font weight

    2) Allow for custom offset to baseline

    3) Allow for variable colour.

    See my mockup attached for further clarification.

    • 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.

      • New Guide Layout

        There needs to be a "New Guide Layout" feature, same as in Photoshop, so that the user can create a baseline grid. See screenshot attached.

        This is VERY important.

        Grids, guides, and baseline grids, need be implemented.

        Thank you!

        • Add discussion feature to Design Spec

          Developers and designers where I work would love to get a place on the new Design Specs feature where they would add comments against artboards or even an element on a page.

          Maybe even code snippets and links to external systems to look at feedback from a client or user group.

          • Design specs - Discuss - Download assets

            Me (designer) and my developers see great potential in this tool to bridge a gap. Although we see two major improvements that are essential:

            Discuss: Add comments to artboards and elements for the ability to discuss UI, flow and e.g. to assign string tokens to texts or labels.

            Download assets: having 1 place to look at the specs and to download the right assets would be a great win for my developers and of course make hand-off easier for me.

            With some major tools out there which already support this, I think these "3 D's" ;-) are very much necessary.

            • See all connection in prototype mode

              Currently in prototype mode, connections disappear unless you click on a board or do cmd-a.

              We need the ability to see all connections or hide them. Not by "selecting boards" using cmd-a. Just show all connections.

              People use XD not just to prototype but to pass a desired flow from designers/product to developers. Don't restrict the use case for XD

              • 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.

                • Fit Textbox to Text

                  I love this feature in InDesign and Illustrator. In InDesign if you double click the lower right corner of the textbox it scales to fit. Similarly in Illustrator if you click the handles on the right center or bottom center of the textbox it will scale to fit.

                  This feature would help better determine handling to padding/margins be more reflective of final development

                  • Data grid/table component with core functionality

                    A data table component with headers, columns of varying widths, alternating row colors, add/delete rows, add/delete columns - very standard stuff! See Axure, PowerPoint, Confluence, etc. etc. Should be able to paste data from an Excel worksheet. An enterprise designer like me, who deals with data-rich UIs, must have this before I can consider adopting XD as my standard tool.

                    Seems so obvious! But I haven't found this in other suggestions, most others focus on one aspect of a table instead of core table properties. I'd love to hear I'm just missing it somehow...

                    • Export to JPEG @2x (JPG)

                      The title says it. Since the original request for "Export to JPG" (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12942069-export-to-jpg) was completed, though not fully, I'm adding this request to add exporting of JPEG @2x resolution.

                      • Find Font (globally replace one font with another)

                        Include a "find font" panel like in Adobe Illustrator to globally replace one font with another. Even with the symbol/assets panel this is hard for documents that you did not architect and may require a lot of extra work (i.e. the iOS UI kits in a windows environment where San Francisco font has to be downloaded from third party sources and converted manually to .ttf)

                        • 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.

                          • Illustrator support for CC libraries

                            Seems like we're missing CC Library support for Illustrator assets. I'm sure you're on it but didn't find another comment on it. I can imagine you were under the gun to show off more library integration for MAX but vector symbols are really where it's going to be at for our team's needs. (That and JPG exporting, but that's been covered).

                              I have an xd file with a lot of artboards depicting different screens of my app. I wanna be able to create multiple prototypes from the same xd file because I wanna show different pieces of the app to different people. It would be nice to create multiple prototypes from the same file.

                              • 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.

                                • Ability to move/organise symbols in the library

                                  Sometimes I have had to redo a symbol, and when I add it to the library it's miles away from the other symbols of its kind.

                                  It would be useful to be able to rearrange symbols manually and/or in categories and/or being able to group them for easy finding when you have hundreds!

                                      You probably wonder why the title says Interactive Prototyping and then I put it under 01: Design mode. You'll see why.

                                      I think Adobe XD should add the ability to design other elements in your design apart from the missing option to even add video's to you designs I think Adobe should make it so you can customize the whole video player (or music play, or whatever).

                                      Let me explain. You have a blank space where you can put the video. Then you can add a timeline to scrub to the video and customize it to your likes, then you…

                                      • Definable Constraints

                                        Hi guys,

                                        It would be really useful to be able to define Constraints - that is to say, for example, a piece of text is centred within an object, or 30 pixel right & down from a corner. Then, if I were to resize the object to which it is constrained this relationship would be maintained thus allowing easier responsive design by building a hierarchy of relationships between objects and artboards.

                                        Thanks

                                        • export elements from design specs

                                          just give the ability to developers to export elements from Design Specs, they are still dependant on us, designers, to provide that.
