  1. Duplicate Items in the Layers palette with Option/Alt+Drag

    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.

      • Pen and touch support in windows 10

        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.

        • Windows version to be on par with Mac version

          It would be great if the Widows version was on par with the Mac version instead of half a year behind.

          • Dropdown arrow selection for line thickeness and font size

            When editing text, I would like to be able to select the arrow to nudge up 1 or down 1 in line thickness or font size. As a visual designer, often I have to see what the thickness would look like on the item I'm working on. It would be much easier to press up or down arrows to visually see the design change versus typing the number each time, testing the look out, then typing the number again and looking at the design for balance.

              • Create Accessibility Specifications/Annotations

                When an accessible application is being developed, the designer needs to deliver accessibility information to the developers. For example, a designer wants to create the tab orders, keyboard specs, and ARIA Region information.

                Deigners currently use makeshift tools to create these specs and would benefit from functionality embedded in this wonderful tool.

                This may simply be an addition to the wildy popular "Generate specs / measurements / style guide for developers."

                • Export files to flinto and Principle

                  What I love from XD is the ability to design and prototype in the same tool without having to install hundreds of plugins and the lightweight that it is. Sometimes have to animate things faster with custom animations and I use these tools (Principle and Flinto) to create them. I've been obligated to recreate my designs into this tools then animate. It should be nice to have a export tool to this tools or others.

                  • Embed fonts for mobile preview

                    Would be nice if fonts were embedded into the XD file. If not you aren't able to preview the app design with the correct font from iOS or android when syncing from creative cloud.

                        We’ve begun work on bringing Boolean groups to the Windows build! Stay tuned – we’ll let you know when you can work with Boolean groups (aka Pathfinder tools) in Adobe XD for Windows 10.

                        • Ability to resolve a comment as done

                          It would be nice to have an option to have a check box to resolve comments & feedback. I think dropbox has this feature now.

                          This would be helpful so that as I'm designing I can every easily see the issues that still need address & those that might need some more attention.

                            This is a workflow we absolutely plan to support. For the first release, we just didn’t end up getting it in. It is in our top 3 priorities with regards to commenting workflows.

                            I'd really like a Start screen so that I can see my most recently used files and access tutorials and the UI kits easily.

                              • Export SVG With Inline Styles

                                If you'll use exported SVG graphics as a code embedded into your HTML (but not as an external .svg image) you encounter CSS issues.
                                The problem is in <style></style> which you generate on SVG export. Every path in SVG has its class name and they all are named like "a", "b", "c" etc… (image 1 attached)
                                1. These classes may cause conflict with existing classes, in case I already have "a", "b", "c" classes in my HTML.
                                2. These classes will interfere styles of other SVGs exported from XD and embedded on the page.

                                Solution:
                                Remove classes and generate inline…

                                • Out of bounds Transitions (Hidden Menus)

                                  You should be able to create segues / transitions that allow you to partially reveal parts of a page instead of going to a new page.

                                  For example, I have a menu icon and I want a hidden menu on the left side to slide in when I click the menu icon, I should be able to create a segue or transition onto the same page but specifying how much of the current page I need to show... (if the menu is 400px wide, it should allow me to specify that value).

                                  Thanks!

                                  • Load a URL inside a container object

                                    The idea is to be able to leverage content already on the web via a URL, for prototyping purposes.

                                    It could be as simple as the following:

                                    1. Add a new "Web container" type of object
                                    2. Double-click for a popup asking for the URL, press enter

                                    The content could load right away. Xd could take a snapshot of it so that it doesn't slow things down in Design mode, but in Proto mode it would of course show live content.

                                    There would also be more options, like enabling/disabling vertical and horizontal scrolling for the container.

                                    • My own symbols collection

                                      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…

                                      • Symbol states & animations

                                        It would be awesome to have a similar concept as proto.io's container states and animations in Adobe XD. It would allow us to define a symbol (container in proto.io) that has its own states and animations between those states and reuse them on several pages.

                                        For instance: A simple slideshow within a page, define it as a symbol, make each shown picture a state and navigate through them via arrow-links. Add animations between those states to make the images slide in from left/right.

                                          Would still like to be able to zoom into a targeted area with the magnifying glass as you can in the Mac version
