  1. Add Padding to Object for Prototyping

    This is not a request for creating custom shapes / separate objects to enable prototyping. I would like a property added to an object that allows me to add padding around an object, so that the selectable area is larger than the object it relates to.

    This could come in two different flavors (combined into one implementation):
    1) Classic padding - add it equally around object
    2) Morphable - like classic, but allows me grab the handles / path points and redefine that space manually

        • Name color favorites/swatches

          I'd like the ability to assign names to saved colors in my document's color palette library (the color picker "favorites" list).

          This makes it easier to identify the correct color to use when my palette contains multiple similar colors.

          This may also be useful for future features like making document-wide color changes (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869085-global-style-color-edits).

          • [Windows] Paste from Photoshop

            I tried to copy a rasterized image and text from PSD but I can't paste it in XD. also from illustrator, I made a logo the i copy it but I can't paste it in XD.

            • Splash screen on the start of XD, to be inline with other CC apps, and to show immediacy of launch

              I want you guys to implement and make a splash screen for XD too. Not just for aesthetics style, and not just to be inline with Adobe CC apps too, but to show immediacy to the XD app instead of a plain grey color on the splash, a clever workaround to make transition on launching the XD to showing the Start page, but on users like me, time is precious, and on that grey page, some users on old and slow machine, or let say you're a known multitasker and have so many apps running with you, you'll end up…

              • Back to calling artboard

                When creating navigation links in prototype mode, we can choose an existing artboard or 'previous artboard'.
                I'd like to see a third option 'calling artboard'. Let me explain the difference:

                In the attached diagram, on the left, a typical 'previous artboard' scenario is shown. Going from A, B or C to X and then on X clicking some back button will bring you back to A, B or C. No problem there.

                But the second scenario (right) is trickier: we go from A to X, at that point, A wil be the 'previous artboard'. We then roundtrip from X to…

                  Currently it's not possible at all to work with Experience Design using touch or pen input on Windows 10. Please improve that.

                    From our release blog post

                    > We have ambitious plans to offer full support for touch devices and pen input in XD. While we have made progress in this area, we are not ready yet to make those capabilities available in our public beta releases. Once we’ve delivered the core XD feature set for designing, prototyping and sharing user experiences, then we’ll enable touch and pen features for the Microsoft Surface family of products and other touch-enabled devices.

                  • Filename in Windows Taskbar

                    In the Windows Taskbar, show the name of the file rather than "Adobe Experience Design", same as Illustrator or Photoshop. It is currently difficult to tell which is which since they have matching names.

                    • Scale/resize symbols individually

                      I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.

                      Please let us scale the symbols

                            • Font Awesome integration

                              When I need Font Awesome icons, I have to go and create them in Illustrator, rasterise them and import them into XD.
                              My FontAwesome ttf font family appears in the font list but it doesn't work (not applied to selection).
                              Ideally I would want to select FontAwesome from the font list (or as a glyph), type it, and rasterise/vectorise it.

                                  It would be amazing to option+drag an item in the Layer's Panel. I find myself wanting to duplicate something by dragging from one folder (or symbol) to another.

                                  At the moment I can't even drag an item out of a Symbol into another folder or layer in the Layer's panel.

                                  • UI kit interaction and auto sync of shared library instances

                                    Is it possible to add interaction to a UI kit elements and when we use that UI Kit it should retain that interaction as in instance. Also when a UI kit is updated by a designer it should automatically update all the all the related xd files to be in sync of same asset libraries.

                                    Interactions could be a slider, progress bar, movement of a form element etc

                                      I think there are two separate issues in this story. The first has to do with copying interactions from a UI kit, which will be covered when we copy interactions:
                                      https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13041930

                                      The second question is probably an issue for Creative Cloud libraries: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12930321

                                      I’m thinking that I should merge this story with the first one (copying interactions). If I don’t hear objections in about a month, I’ll go ahead and do that.

                                      Thanks,

                                      I love XD - you are making a great software!

                                      As I often use the same symbols in different apps - like return arrow, drop down arrow, ...) i would love to create my own symbol collection with several standard symbols to which I have access in XD while creating new designs.

                                      But if i use a symbol from my own symbol collection, the symbols still shall be customizable so that I can change colour or size if necessary. If i make changes, it would be great to have the possibilities either to save the changed symbol only to the…

                                      • Hide selection border when changing an object's shadow

                                        Not sure if this has already been flagged, but I find the following behaviour really annoying:

                                        1. Create a button made of a rectangle + some text on top. Group these two layers.

                                        2. Double click to select only the rectangle

                                        3. Change the shadow settings in order to add a subtle little shadow below the button

                                        As you can see, there is a blue border around the button, which is displayed when you select an object belonging to a group.
                                        This blue border is preventing me to see my shadow being drawn and understand if I like it or…

                                        • Support Sketch files

                                          Would be great if I was able to open and edit Sketch files in AdobeXD. It would accelerate migration from Sketch to AdobeXD a lot.
