  1. 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)

    • Make Design Spec publicly accessible

      At the moment, my development team do not have an adobe subscription, and I often work with external organisations who also do not use adobe either.

      As a result, I need the ability to share a public link to the design specs so that they can access it.

      • Pressing 'V' while focus is in Hex, Width, Height, X, Y, etc should unfocus and change the pointer to 'Select'

        When changing the color, dimensions, or location of an object I often want to press 'V' to change the cursor to 'Select' and move on. 'V' is not a valid value in any of those fields, so it would be great when I press 'V' it would lose focus on the field, and change the cursor.

        Instead, I have to remember to hit 'Escape' then 'V'.

        • Fluid Symbols

          I want symbols to be more fluid. Currently I can't resize a symbol after applying it. Sometimes I want the same symbol applied at various sizes. Currently I cannot do that, I'm forced to make a new symbol for every size scenario.

          • Name Character Styles

            It would help a great deal if Character Styles can be named. Right now it is tough managing them and knowing which is which.

              • 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

                • Save symbols to be used across multiple projects

                  Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

                  • Get assets on design spec mode

                    On the design specs mode, I should be able to direct developers to where a specific asset is. Sometimes I want to attach a link to an asset (if it's common use, a logo hosted on S3 for an example), sometimes the dev needs to be able to download the asset (be it an image already scaled to 1x, 2x, etc or the code of an SVG to embed into a page) and the third case is that I need to attach some free text (for example a path on our local server or the icon code on font awesome…

                    • Merge XD & Muse

                      XD is great at prototyping UI/UX, but severely lacks at turning those designs into functional sites and applications.

                      Muse does just that, but is not nearly as fun to design with.

                      Essentially, I'd love to be able to view HTML/CSS properties in XD, but then that's eating into what Muse does. So I suggest merging the two.

                      • Nested Symbol Overrides: swap inner symbol in different copies of outer symbol

                        So I started playing with Symbols Override for the June Update, but I feel this feature is still a little limited to what we can do.

                        Like I want to create a master nav bar with active and default states. But the override doesn't allow me to have that flexibility.

                        Same thing applies to a tab bar for iOS apps.

                        Right now I feels this Symbols Override feature only works for Buttons when you want to keep the same button styling but have different text. Or maybe cards with bitmap images, but not in a repeated grid list view format.

                        • Edit symbol definition in isolation mode

                          Editing a symbol right now requires you to drag it out the symbols panel onto the canvas or edit it right where you use it (both ways require a double click to get into the symbol). This is working and it makes sense.

                          I think it would be very useful to have a dedicated symbols view (a seperate canvas) with all symbols (automatically) placed on. Ready to be edited without having to double click each. Making work on multiple symbols much easier.

                          This is not a new or special idea. Sketch does this and it's something I got very used…

                          • 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.

                            • Annotations on prototype connections

                              We need the ability to annotate the connections between boards in prototype modes. So all the connection lines should have text that you can add, position, etc by double clicking the line. This is pretty standard in other flow tools.

                              I think XD is great but you've somewhat limited the use case of it. even "prototype" mode misses the true need which is to be able to layout exactly how an application fits together and annotate why it goes from one screen to another.

                                  • 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 guess if you guys provide the option of gif/photo zoom pan/video compatible options would be good with few animation options like flips and so, i felt XD is very good for the people who want to present the client ideas in better way and presentable. this few requests gets live in software would be more good. and one more major requirement is the tab options as each documents opens up in different window. or else should be a option where in a single document only we can present all three platform compatible option like desktop/mobile/tab.

                                      will be waiting for…

                                      • Confirmation Box when Creating New Link

                                        When you have an existing shared project and you go to "Share Again", because you need to update the link, the new link is directly under the "Share Again" button, so I have accidentally clicked "New Link" when I only wanted to do an update.

                                        This mistake means I have to contact the entire Executive and Sales levels associated with the source project, to let them know about the new link they now have to distribute to all of the Clients / Prospects / Partners. This also means update PowerPoints that have the link embedded with them, etc... It's a…

                                        • Align to key object or artboard feature

                                          It would be great if we could use the align tools much more in line with Illustrator's current tool. Automatically keying objects to each other is really obtrusive and the moment.
