      • Preview symbols

        As a Mac user, I always use spacebar to preview files before open them, and I'd like to be able to do the same thing with symbols inside XD and preview them in a bigger window in order to have a better view of the small ones.

              • import the muse websites people have built.

                It would be great if people could import their Muse websites into XD. I do not know coding therefore I can't use Dreamweaver and there is not another comparable to Muse adobe app that will work...

                • Batch export - mark items not to export

                  I design layout with sample text. I export the background for use in actual layouts. Now I have to hide what I don't want to export.
                  By marking them I don't have to hide them and editing layout will also be a lot easier. All hidden items in a group cannot be selected and moved together with items not in the group.

                  • Style Grouped Elements - How to do it?

                    I saw that you can grouped elements, and then make one change that applies to all. I don't know what are the steps to achieve this? Could you show us how? I couldn't find a tutorial on the Adobe Help page.

                    • 7-Day Trial not long enough for purchase decision

                      Update to XD CC version today.

                      I've been using XD for a while now and have been a big fan ...up until today.

                      Like many others, I've invested a lot of time testing out this product. Also like others, I've done this on real projects in order to put XD to the test; see if it works for my workflow and so on. It was a risk I knowingly took.

                      However, with such a short trial window for the official release, I feel like Adobe now has me over a barrel. There have been a few critical features missing which…

                      • Title name for character styles

                        There must be an option to call what kind of text style I have created.
                        Currently, it just shows what the font type, size etc., but user should be able to create his own style name or predefined user interface styles.

                        Like in Adobe InDesign for paragraph styles.

                        That way I can easily identify what kind of generated style I want to use to the text component I have created.

                        • Live width and Height

                          When we draw a rectangle or any other object it's nice to have live width and height. And an option for enabling and disable it by preference or something like that. it's also great to have this live width height feature when we move the item around.

                          • Populate repeat grid with symbols

                            While populating objects within a repeat grid with images is extremely handy it would also be nice to have a similar feature for symbols.

                            Say you design an instance of a repeat grid with a icon (as symbol) and a label (text) and then repeat it. It would be nice to then have the option to drag multiple symbols (e.g. icons of the same style and size) from the symbols sidebar onto the symbol in the repeat grid in order to build a repeated pattern from these various icons.

                            • Better svg export

                              Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
                              the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

                              It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

                              A cleaner svg would…

                                Hi,

                                The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

                                Cheers,
                                M.

                              • crop and image editing feature.

                                I would love the ability to use the features that are available in photoshop such as layer via copy and layer via cut as well. This would make creating rough prototyping form existing designs very useful. This would also help with web optimisation design prototyping as well.

                                Currently I have to take everything into photoshop to edit and then bring it back into XD to continue prototyping.

                                Even just a crop tool in XD would be useful. Anything to edit images and designs dragged in.

                                • Atomic.io integration

                                  The integrations with Protopie and Kite are great, but both apps lack a free tier. Atomic is one of the best prototyping tools and the free tier will fill almost every need.

                                  In fact, Adobe should acquire Atomic and make it an integral part of XD.

                                  • Artboard Copy Incrementation (count)

                                    I just created the first artboard of a series. I select it, then drag a copy of it over to the right and drop the new copy. Let's say the name is "List" on the first artboard. The new copy is set to "List - 1". When you have an original copy, that original copy is the #1. So, the second copy should be "List - 2", not "List - 1".

                                    Also, I'd like to remove the hyphen. In fact, if we could just set how the incrementation works as a preference, that would be best.

                                    • Need external linking capability

                                      I maintain mockups in html/css that call on xd embeds for more complicated parts of the UI. Need to be able to link out to illustrate help, contact, go to a web page and transition to other features for a full experience. Need more flexibility.
