  1. set font-style when selecting all characters in text

    Before, I could change only selected characters font-style even if I selected all characters in the text object.

    So, I can design the calendar UI very easily. (please play the video)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCImsSCCHXc

    But it does not work as it is.
    The color of text objects in repeat grid was replaced by new one.

      Thank you for letting us know about this. We’re looking into the issue, but a little more information would be a huge help. Could you send us a copy of your XD file, and the text file you used to populate it?

      For repeat grids, the general rule of thumb is that if all the text is selected when you make a character style change (font family, font style, font size, char spacing, or fill), then all copies of that item in the repeat grid will get that change. Otherwise, if only part of the text is selected, that change will not be propagated. It looks like you’re seeing something in between, where the style change propagates to some but not all copies, which doesn’t sound right.

      Thanks again for your help tracking this down,
      -Bear

      • Revision Control

        It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

        • Toggle show/hide measurements

          Description: A toggle or a hotkey to show/hide the size of the objects and/or the distance between all objects in the project.

          Why: It will make easier to know how to position the objects, to be exact the same as in the XD file, when you develop the app. well it not so hard to calculate it by yourself. XD knows how to show it when you move the objects, the only thing left is just to create a button to show and keep it on visible, but with automatically calculated distance and size of all objects. As a web…

          • One click to edit text

            This is a very simple but useful feature that I'd like to see carried over from InDesign.

            In InDesign, when the text tool is selected, it only takes one click to begin editing text in the exact place where you click in a text string. To select the object to move it, you simply use the Selection Tool (V), but if you want to edit text, the Text Tool (T) makes it seamless.

            Currently in XD, objects are selected in the same way regardless as to whether the Selection Tool or Text Tool is in use. This requires 2 clicks…

            • Inner shadow, inner glow, outer glow.

              I realise there have been several topics on this. However They're all over 1 year old and still have no status.

              I'm missing the inner shadow, inner glow and outer glow options. These are basic elements used for creating UI designs.

              I've (already) chosen to adopt Adobe Xd within my company as the standard UI prototyping and design tool. However this is a great handicap. I can't even design a "pressed/active" button now since it won't let me do a inner shadow.

              What's the deal guys?

              • Graphic tab/pen compatibility

                Currently while having PS or illustrator open while working with XD it can be a little annoying when jumping back into XD you have to down the graphic pen and switch to mouse pad. I use my graphics tab more and more and being able to use it in XD with such things like the pen tool would really help UX imo

                • Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

                  Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

                  At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

                  Thanks!

                  Best regards,
                  Guy

                    • Buy Subform and roll it into XD

                      Just what the title says. Buy out Subform (https://subformapp.com/) from its owners/developers (they're self-funded so they might welcome the offer) and roll it into Adobe XD. There are some amazing layout features, object states, and all around good ideas about product design built into this little app.

                      • Maintain creation order of artboards when exporting to pdf

                        Artboard export to pdf is currently top left to bottom right. When linking to the PDF from InDesign this may mess up the links if artboards are rearranged or added later.

                        An option to change this behavior to be closer to Illustrator would fix this issue. I.e. export in order of creation.

                        Unless there is another way to reference XD files from within InDesign?

                        • lineheight expands the boundingbox on fonts

                          It could be nice if the boundingbox that sorrounds the font on hover, expands in size when increasing the lineheight. With that we could set the lineheight as the developers use it in css.

                          See example attached.

                          • Share Again – don’t copy URL on Saved-As

                            I often ‘save as’ my app, and rebrand it for a different client. Despite renaming the saved-as file, if I SHARE AGAIN, it will remember the old URL – and sometimes I’m tired enough to accidentally over-write the file. This would be disastrous with clients! Please forget the URL of a saved-as file.

                                      To go along with the shared styles, have a shared sitemap that you can click on and be taken to the design and easily jump back and forth between the site map mode and the design mode. Also, easy way to export the sitemap.

                                      • Link color swatches from the local color picker to Asset Panel colors

                                        Display the color swatches added in the Appearance's color-picker library in the Character Style's color picker

                                        Problem:
                                        When editing a Character Style from the Assets window, the color picker does not display the swatches from the Appearance's local color library.

                                        Solution:
                                        Make the color swatches from the Appearance color-library be reflected in all color pickers across the app, including the Character Style color picker.

                                        • Swap border and fill colors

                                          Switch colors between fill and border color option

                                          Allow switching fill and border color. I mean, pressing a button and what is fill color will be border color mutually.
