    • Share prototype with customers so that they can view on their mobile devices

      First of all: I LOVE XD! Thanks for this great software!

      My issue is, that sharing the prototype on the web is nice, but our customers request to see the prototype on their mobile devices - but not with the online link, because they can't see the complete screen without scrolling and that looks not like an app more than a webpage.

      Now the only possibility is to download the xd app, login or register and connect the mobile device with the computer, where the file is open. How can our customer see and test the prototype in the same…

        • Including the repeat grid spacing in properties as a field

          Currently, there's no simple way to look up or adjust the spacing of an existing repeat grid element (other than grabbing and dragging the spacing area).

          This is sometimes bothersome because, 1) when just trying to look it up, you don't always want to change the spacing, and 2) finding the spacing adjustment area can be a bit fiddly.

          Also, when you DO want to adjust the spacing, it can be a bit tricky to get it on the exact pixel.

          Therefore, it'd be nice if the spacing property would show up as an input field in the right (properties)…

          • Support for "Fill" in transparent images (Windows)

            Downloading transparent icons and then importing them to Photoshop just to change the color of it is just annoying.Especially when you have 4 gigs of ram.

            Adobe pls.

                Hi,

                I assume you are running XD on Win10. For the moment, for export on Win10, you can change the following information:

                • the export folder
                • the name of the exported asset (from the Layers panel)

                Does this work for you?

                Cheers,
                M.

              • Child Artboards

                It would be interesting to duplicate an art board as a child of the original. The background shows the parent slide and can't be edited. Any changes to the parent would be reflected on the child slide.

                The value would be in showing simple things like a pull down or date picker on the child slid. This would also be a great way to create slides that show dialogue boxes and such too. If I do this 4 or 5 times with duplicate art boards today, I create a file that is difficult to maintain since changes to the underlying…

                • Only opening the last file I had open on Appilcation start

                  Currently when I start Adobe XD (Windows) the program opens many XD files that I've worked on previously. While its great for the program to open the most recently edited file (cause chances are that is what I'll be working on today), opening six other files isn't necessary. Plus opening many XD windows slows down the load time of the one file I do want to open.

                  • Add UI Kit as a Toolbar

                    I've been using the app Pencil ( https://github.com/evolus/pencil ) to mock up my projects, and I've come to really like their "stencils" (a left-sidebar that holds UI kits). I would like that same functionality, instead of having to open a different project (that has the UI kits) and copy/paste into my new project. I'd rather drag/drop from a sidebar that's part of my "design mode" window.

                    • Transfer prototypes from one AdobeID account to another

                      It would be helpful to be able to copy prototypes (along with any shared comments posted to those prototypes) from one Adobe ID to another. I am leaving one company and moving to another company but need to take my prototypes with me and there is currently no way of doing this. Thanks!

                      • Copy comments from one prototype to another

                        When I want to post multiple versions of the same prototype online (v1, v2, etc. with incremental changes made between versions), and I have notated the prototype screens with comments/instructions for developers about user flow and requirements and actions... it would be super helpful to be able to transfer or copy my comments (and any client comments) from one prototype to the other. Otherwise, I have to overwrite existing prototypes to keep all my comments intact... which means I can't keep older versions of these screens posted online for reference or comparison, and I have to manually add comments/annotation to…

                          • Share your roadmap?

                            Guys we all appreciate the great work you are putting into this and we understand you can't work on everything at once, but at the same time, from the users' point of view, it can seem like a risky move to even consider switching moving to XD when there's no knowing which features will be implemented and when.

                            For example if I had jumped in 6 months ago assuming underline will be supported by now, I would have been wrong.

                            It would help if you could share at least some rough estimates for what you intend to work on for…

                              You have font-sizing down tight in PSD with the (SHIFT + Command + Period/Comma), can you please add this to Xd? It would require zero screen real estate.

                              • Design Panel and String Variables

                                The biggest hog of screen space and effort tied to interactive mock-ups is the creation of multiple art boards to accommodate simple transformations of screen objects.

                                It would be great to be able to assign a variable tag to the values in the design panel and then be able to set the limits/increment values to them. This would also apply to strings.

                                Using my Clock example from another feature request:
                                I could assign the rotation variable to my hands set the limit to 10° then set another button to cycle that symbols rotation variable. Otherwise using the current art board…

                                  I know there is another idea about this, but only as I can only comment on it and can't add my own screen shots of why this is so important.

                                  If for example in the UI I want to change the value of an element I have to create a whole new art board just to change one element on the screen.

                                  As an applicable example: I'm creating an alarm clock app. I want the user to tap buttons to move the hands on the clock and see the time change in another location of the UI. I will need…

                                  • Add a bit of snapping lag when moving objects with a tablet pen

                                    I've been using XD with a wacom tablet (Intuos 5) for several weeks and I have the same problem as with other design software: the pen input is too sensitive to movement!
                                    Often times I click with the pen to select an object and I accidentally move it at the same time (a few pixels) which is really annoying and sometimes I don't even notice it if I've very zoomed out.
                                    In Paint Tool SAI, which ironic is not even a design tool, there's an intentional lag snap when dragging stuff so you don't move things accidentally. Maybe something like…

                                    • Snap to Grid

                                      just like in Illustrator, Set grid, turn it on, any move using mouse or kbd keys will always snap the move to the created grid. very impt for UX design work.

                                        Please let us know how you would like XD’s existing Grid snapping feature to be different.

                                        Or if you’re having trouble just finding the Grid feature in XD, please let us know where you’d expect to find it in the UI.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • What uses is the text field update if you can't have different leading

                                          I welcome the ability to add differing colours, fonts and sizes simultaneously within one text area in the recent update (Jun 13th 2017) but I cannot use this feature as I can't lead the text differently within? This is not a finished feature basically. So my request is that independent text blocks need independent leading please.

                                            Actually, you should be able to change the character spacing between two characters. If you highlight the character before and edit the character spacing, it should affect the spacing between it and the next character.

                                            Let me know if this doesn’t work!
