  1. Ability to define a team and assign individual role-based permissions on a project

    Super-admins (enterprise level) should be able to:
    -View, edit, delete, create teams
    -View, edit, delete, add team members + owners
    -Assign/ remove teams to/ from projects

    Team Admins (manager level) should be able to:
    -Add members to a team

    -Edit role-based access permissions for each member of the team related to project access (Team admin, Collaborator, Reviewer, Approver)

    Teams are associated with:

    -Asset libraries & UI kits

    This is related to the following feature requests (that I could discover)

      I'd like a contextual layers panel like the one we have on the Mac version of XD.

      • MS Windows Priority!

        Us windows (10) user are really badly stuck for a good prototyping tool. It is awful to see, once again, that windows users of XD are trailing Mac users in terms of functionality!

        Sketchapp have ignored Windows users, which IMHO is going to be the eventual cause of their demise as most design/dev teams use a mix of OSs in house.

        I looked at Adobe XD last year and again over the past day. Windows users are still being treated as second class users to Mac users.

        Please speed up or Windows development! Features of both OSs should be released…

        • Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch.

          Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch, In this way helps us to create an screen easily doing drag and drop.

          • Apply gradient to border/stroke

            When I import a SVG file with a gradient on the stroke, it becomes gray in XD. And there is no way that I can make the border/stroke with gradient color.

            I feel it will be nice to apply gradient to the border so that I don't have to expand the stroke.

            • Tool to measure percentage

              A tool so you can measure margins and elements in percentage instead of pixels. It will be easier when you give measurements to the programmers.

              • [Windows] Default type

                I would like to be able to change the default type for a project. For example, I would like to change the default type to "Roboto." When using the text tool, I shouldn't have to change the type every single time.

                Optionally, provide a formatting option like Illustrator where I can use the Eye dropper tool to copy the formatting of another element.

                • 9 slice scaling of bitmaps

                  Why does there seem to be no interest or demand for this feature anymore? For me it's a "must have" for efficient prototyping. I realize "flat" is all the rage, but I still do a lot of photo-realistic, skeuomorphic design using Photoshop's bitmap-only tools. Without 9-slice scaling, there's no way to properly scale a png graphic within XD. I have to create all the different sizes I need in Photoshop and import them all separately. Doesn't anyone else have this problem, or am I missing something?

                  I realize there's already a post about this, but I'm hoping for some feedback…

                    I can’t comment on the state of design, but what I can do for you is to merge the other story into this one, which will notify all of the other people who upvoted for it. That being said, it’s likely that people are beginning to go all-vector, which negates the need for bitmap 9-scaling if you have fixed point corners.

                  • Menues

                    There's no way to build and prototype menus in Xd. The app needs to implement features that caters to all types of interactivity we find in web design, mobile design etc. Menus are a cruical part of prototyping in general. This is why I use Axure today.

                    • Type styles

                      Type styles! Just like already implemented in Indesign. That would improve typography work immensely and of course make global type changes easier.

                      • Resize handles disappear when object is still pretty large (Windows only)

                        When an object is very small on screen -- either due to zooming out, or just because it's small -- XD hides some resize handles to prevent them from jumbling all together.

                        On Mac, handles don't disappear until they're really overlapping. At 100% zoom, you can make a square as small as 16x16 and still see all eight handles (and it'll still give you four handles all the way down to 8x8).

                        On Windows however, you can only go down to 64x64 before handles start vanishing. And it'll drop from 4 handles to 1 at any size below 32x32.

                        This…

                        • Text placeholder (not lorem ipsum) to focus on layout

                          Would be great to have not only Lorem Ipsum, but rather the "simulation" of text when you create title or text blocks.

                          The idea is to create wireframes without concerning at all in the first instance on font selection, etc. The focus is layout layout layout. After a second instance, this should be able to be converted to Lorem Ipsum to apply typography.

                          See image attached for the "simulation" reference.

                          • Apply gradient to text

                            Hi,

                            Would be really nice if you could add gradient to text as well as objects.

                            • single layer dragging

                              Why is layer dragging not an option? I want to reorder layers like in photoshop by dragging them up or down. Not by the arrange option.

                              For example, sometimes when I load in a new picture, it goes into a group. At that point, I can’t drag it out that group.

                              Basically, my feature request is: Could Xd get the same layer ordering as photoshop?

                              • Artboard page numbers

                                It would be great to include page numbers on the actual artboards similar to indesign for presentation purposes.

                                Clients often get lost due to screen share lag, so having the page number available would greatly help.

                                      • Allow interaction wires/links from objects inside a symbol

                                        I was so excited about the new symbols feature that I made all of my navbars in a design a symbol. This may be one of the most obvious uses of symbols, since every page will almost always have the same navbar. But you can't connect objects inside a symbol. Therefore, you can't connect nav items, icons, logos in a nav bar.

                                        Either allow connects for objects inside symbols, but don't propagate them in all instances, or DO propagate them in all instances. But you HAVE to be able to connect objects inside symbols in prototype mode.

                                        Otherwise, we can…

                                        • Colour wheel like Ai, PS and InDesign

                                          Would like to see a colour wheel and swatches like the rest of the programs, rather than having to click on the fill icon to select colour. I just lose time by doing that and feels less free to quickly test colours.
