  1. Please make this a viable and fully usable Adobe product, not a shell of what it could be.

    Symbols not being on Windows first release. UI Kits being left out of the same, as well as layers panel and launch screen. The fact that individual items in a symbol (for navigation and menus for example) can not be individually linked to separate places...and that option having the ability to toggle for global or individual editing... is absurd.

    The benefits for using Adobe products...are that they behave like and interact with other adobe products. So far, this is only happening an a fairly limited basis. :/

    The more I play with this...the more I'm considering buying another Mac and…

    • [Windows] Add photos / live content directly from websites and API. Feeds, Maps, and more.

      Being able to add photos or latest posts via url would be great.

      For instance, Facebook, twitter feed, latest IG post, etc... Adding this functionality to an element would allow us to add real time feeds that would REALLY impress clients.

      Live weather feed, real google maps integration, etc. The possibilities here are limitless.

      • Be able to rename symbols inside the Symbol Library

        The inability to change symbol names from inside the Symbol Library is a huge inconvenience. It means that every time I use a symbol, I have to change its name from "Symbol 3-1" (for example) to "Edit icon" (for example).

        All you would need to do is add "Rename" to the right-click menu in the Symbols Library. If it doesn't seem to make sense to be able to rename something that doesn't appear to even have a name in the Symbols Library, well then show a tooltip when hovering over it (after a few seconds of delay). That should be…

        • Update border and fill of selected object dynamically when using eyedropper

          You've just selected an object (or group of objects) and want to try out different fill and/or border colors, but you want to use the eyedropper tool to pick up colors from your design, or a photo.

          Wouldn't it be cool if, as you're hovering the eyedropper, your selection gave you a real-time "clean" preview? By clean I mean without the selection UI around it (the green transparent outline and white handles).

          (Originally: "Clean", live update of object as eyedropper is being used to select new Fill/Border color)

          • Repeat grid gutter working with dynamic text size

            Text comes in 2 modes: line or bloc. The particularity of the line mode is that the size is dynamic.

            When creating a Repeat grid with a text line, it would be uber cool that if we change the replicas content, the gutter applies on the new text width, which is best for classic inline items (menu, breadcrumb, …).

            For now, the gutter adapts to the largest item.

            • [Windows] Save dialog on exit

              Right now the Windows app saves automatically when closing, I would like that there be a dialog that asks whether the file should be saved or not instead.

                • When you duplicate to different size artboard, automatically resize/align everything to fit the new artboard

                  if you design for one type, eg: iphone 6, you should be able esily duplicate to any other artboard size eg: ipad, androis, etc, with very few minor adjustments if need be. XD should try its best to duplicate into different artboard size to the best of it's ability

                      What type of shortcut are you looking for? Currently, you can create a new symbol instance by selecting an existing symbol and copying and pasting wherever you want. Are you looking for different functionality?

                      • Wifi connectivity for XD app (not connecting only by USB cable)

                        Instead of being able to connect only by a USB cable, the ability to connect via wifi. Any roadmap for this would be useful to know.

                        • Paste on pressing PrtScn from keyboard

                          It would be nice if one could paste image after pressing print screen on keyboard.

                          This would enable designer to quick reference any thing rather than switching between applications / windows.

                          • Renaming Prototypes

                            The possibility to rename allready uploaded prototypes.

                            For instance I noticed I managed to upload a desktop protoype but the name was containing "mobile" (from a previous upload).

                            I have to reupload the prototype to give it a new name. A lot more hasle than just renaming.

                            Other possibilities:
                            - Give the option to give a prototype name on the artboard.
                            - Use the artboard name.

                              Hi Adobe XD Team,

                              I've been using adobe xd for a couple of days. I'm a UI/UX Designer based in Philippines and this product made me a lot easier to design web projects.

                              I have few request base to my experience in using this product:
                              Saving Status - When i'm saving my current project it so hard to distinguish whether my project has been saved or not.

                              Prototype Scrolling - i have a design with a custom height for example i used web 1366x768 artboard but my current project is longer than the original height. so when i click desktop…

                                  Be able to pick a single (or multiple) artboard to export as pdf. Working with multiple artboards to show simple drop down executions and do not need them all exported together since then I have to go into Acrobat and delete pages.

                                  • Variables and options within Symbol Instances

                                    So there are two features that I've found to be invaluable when working within Sketch that I'd love to see in XD

                                    • The ability to override the value of certain components (Text, Photo backgrounds, etc) within individual instances of a Symbol.

                                    • The Ability to alter how certain elements of a symbol react when you change the size of the Symbol Instance.

                                    It allows for much more detailed mockups while retaining the benefits of symbol usage. It also allows for the creation of more condensed styling documents.

                                    • Add critical features to Mac version then focus on Windows

                                      I see that you've been updating the Windows version to bring it to par with the Mac version. But can you first add some critical features to the Mac version before going full-steam on the Windows?

                                      This way we'll at least have one platform with a strong set of basic features:

                                      a) Non-scrollable elements to fix a header or footer.
                                      b) Show/hide elements so that I can emulate a drop-down menu or a popup window without creating countless Artboards and super complex links.

                                      • The Ability to rename symbols in the symbol Panel

                                        Symbols are global right? You update one symbol, and all instances of that symbol update accross all your artboards where you used that symbol. Makes sense to be able to give a name to your symbol and have the name applied within the layers panel. Easier to see where your symbols are within the layers pane.

                                        • Color Space Management - Like Photoshop

                                          The design world is heavy with Mac Users. The new Macs use a P3 wide color gamut display. When designing in this unmanaged wide gamut color space using Adobe XD and then exporting your design, you will be shocked to see how bad your design looks because the sRGB export will look completely different from how you designed it in XD. This is not a problem in Photoshop because the user can set his/her workspace to sRGB. This feature is desperately needed on XD. I can't use XD on either of my new Macs because of this color space issue.…
