  1. Increase XD team by 10 times

    Adobes arrogance shows in the fact that XD takes years and years to even add the most basic features like underlining text "yay!!!!". I don't blame the XD team but Adobe. I guess there are 15 people at Adobe working on XD, that's a shame.

    The design community has been waiting for an adequate webdesign tool for more than a decade and Adobe still doesn't see the need to provide a complete, feature-rich experience for this huge community.

    Well, I'm VERY VERY happy that InVision Studio is just around the corner and even new tools like Phase are about to…

    • Document name as window title in Windows 10

      sometimes I have multiple documents opened in XD and when I want to choose them via taskbar thumbnail preview or in Task View mode (Win + Tab) the title of XD window is "Adobe XD CC" which is confusing, using document name in title instead would help much more.

        • Assets and Artboards Panels Visible Side-by-Side

          Switching between the Artboards and Assets panels is time-consuming – and it doesn't have to be that way. It would be great to have both panels visible at the same time (as an option on top of the current solution).

          Single panel – great for smaller screens
          Both panels – great for big and huge screens

          Designers are in the group of computer users who are likely to work on a modern, high-quality, big, hi-res screen. I mean here 27" - 40" and 4K and up. Please give us a way of utilising the screen estate we invested in and…

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • When will Adobe invent uppercase text?

                I know, it was revolutionary when Adobe XD announced that it invented underlined text, but what about the next big thin? Uppercase text!

                Also something that has yet to be invented: vertical alignment text!

                Make it happen, you highly innovative Dinosaur!

                • Export to InVision

                  I would like Adobe XD to be able to be exported to InVision just like it is already possible for Photoshop and Sketch.

                  Since it is not yet possible I am still mostly working with Sketch but like to switch to XD since my libraries and such are in the Adobe Cloud.

                  Thank you!

                  • Device Preview compatibility with windows and android

                    I think this is the feature affects me the most as I belong to that designer's realm who don't have a mac or an iphone. :D
                    Kindly include this feature in the next update. I am sure I talk in behalf of all the designers working with a combination of a mac with android vice-versa or probably lack of an mac ecosystem like me.

                    Thanks guys

                    • Re-enable the feature to add your own icon to Prototypes

                      In the Beta vesion of XD there used to be a feature to add an icon (client logo etc.) to the Prototypes, so if you saved it to your homescreen (iOS) the icon would act as the favicon/home screen icon. This seems to have been dissabled in the official release, can we have it back as it was very useful. Ironically my old prototypes still have the icon in them and I no longer have any way of updating/removing them

                      • Import SVG with preserved viewBox boundary

                        Many icon sets define a specific (often square) area that represents the boundaries for all icons. In the SVG format, this boundary is specified by the SVG viewBox attribute. Individual icons will have varying measurements for their vector shapes, e.g. a "minus" icon's vector-shape will have a larger width than height. When scaling icons, if you can rely on the viewBox size, you can scale all icons to consistent sizes (e.g. 24x24 or 48x48).

                        Currently when importing an SVG icon into Adobe XD, the object will have the vector-shapes measurements, so that scaling multiple icons from the same icon set…

                        • 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.

                          • Reorder assets within the Asset Panel

                            Manually drag-n-drop to sort assets in the Assets window

                            Problem:
                            Assets in the Asset window are not always sorted per expectation.
                            Example-1: If during a project I create a tint of a certain color, I may want to place that swatch next to its parent color.
                            Example-2: I need to sort my color assets in accordance with our style-guide and have the primary prior to my secondary colors.

                            Solution:
                            Be able to drag-n-drop assets in the Asset window to sort them manually.

                              I have lost countless hours of work because of the lack of an autosave feature on AdobeXD. I'm not even sure that the software properly saves my work every time when I do hit "Save". Egregious fault.

                                • Preview mode should be viewed within a phone

                                  When previewing a project it would be nice if it would put your screens on an actual phone, the phone you are designing it for. Being able to select a white or black phone would be awesome as well. This would be a similar feature to how Invision works with Sketch, the preview is on an actual phone.

                                  • Generate password automatically.

                                    Hi there,

                                    Thanks for the new feature - password on shared prototype.
                                    Everything works well, except that I need to generate secured password by myself.

                                    So, kindly add auto generate feature.

                                    Thanks.

                                    • The location of CC Library Icon and elements

                                      To enhance the use, the location of the CC Library could be above the symbols icon, on the left side and the elements of the Library shown like it is showing the symbols. Because would be more usually than a new window. When the user to be working, he needs to find the CC Library window if it has more than one in use.

                                      • Reorder colors in color palette

                                        Ability to reorder the colors in the color palette. Currently they're created in the order I make them. I'd like to be able to drag the blues together, greens together, etc.

                                        • Option to publish all screens even without prototyping

                                          If I started prototyping and publish design specs without the prototype linking all the screens the design spec shows only the screens that are linked in the prototype. The specs link doesn't get updated even if I remove all the links.
