  1. Pen Tool: snap points to intersection with other path segments (or full "vector networks" like in Figma)

    I would love to see snapping with the vector tool the way they’ve implemented in Figma (figma.com). Love the ability to snap-align points on a path, especially with the temporary rulers that flash during intersection.

    • Text input field with actions based on value

      For prototyping and user testing, a text input field control would be very helpful. Bonus if you could apply actions to enter / submit based on different strings.

      • Scissor tool/slice vector path

        Making more complex vector drawings is difficult without a tool like the scissor tool from Illustrator.

        Creating arches like the attached image in Illustrator is super easy with the combination of the scissor and circle tool, but in XD it is very difficult.

        • Adjustment Layers/Modes

          Add a top level adjustment mode on each layer or group to fine tune the current fill and border colors. Mods should be presented as layers and stackable to create different combinations.

          • Run multiple prototypes simultaneously (multiple Preview windows in desktop app)

            I'm about to do a focus group - and we have a Mobile AND Web prototype we're running.

            Right now, I can only "play" one prototype at a time - Making side-by-side comparison impossible. (So if I click the play button on my Web prototype, it shows up, but when I click the play button on my Mobile prototype - it closes the web one to open the mobile one).

            I'd like to be able to have both running simultaneously - so we could compare interactions "live" as it were.

              Would it work to share the prototype(s) and then view the two different sizes in separate browser tabs/windows? (Even if the artboards are all in one XD file, you could share it and open the same sharing URL in two tabs, then navigate to different artboards in each tab).

              If not, could you tell us more about why online shared prototypes don’t work for your workflow?

            • Drag image to application icon on Dock

              In any Adobe app, or most any Mac design app, you can drag an image from your finder, or straight from a browser onto the app icon, and it will open up a canvas with that image sized exactly to the size of that image. Use that feature in fireworks and photoshop daily. However, when doing this with Xd it gives an error. You can drag an image onto the canvas itself from a web browser but dragging onto the icon does not appear to work.

              A while back it stopped working with Fireworks too, but Adobe finally fixed it…

              • Export whole artboards (or entire project) as HTML

                It would be great to Export Prototypes as pure HTML Projects. I am working a lot on Multiscreen apps, where I mostly use Serveal Webcontainers Running on several Screens, to develop those Applications.

                • Simulate lazy loading of data for mobile apps

                  As development on scrollable artboards has already begun, it would be good to have a feature of Lazy Loading data on scroll. This would be very helpful for realistic presentation of data on mobile apps.

                  • 3D transforms like Illustrator

                    to be able to shear, 3D rotate etc would be useful. This would reflect css 3D transforms.
                    Example use would be creating isometric mockups.

                    • Em values for font sizes and line spacing

                      Em values allows me to set relative values for font sizes and line spacing in a way that the line spacing is always relative and proportional to the font size. This is a great time saver.

                      Please take a look at Typecast, you can set it in px and/or em. Amazingly flexible.

                        • Different pasteboard color in prototyping tab

                          Would be good to have a different color clipboard background to differentiate between design and prototype mode.

                          • Multiple sharing links for different subsets of same file

                            I´m designing for several screens at once and would like to be able to create separate links for the different screens. Eg one for desktop, one for tablet and one for phone. So that I easily can work on all the screens at once and don't have to change files.

                            • Standalone installer

                              I'm a teacher at university who have a sort of CC team model installed on their computers. I wanted my students starts learning from beginning XD but unfortunately you can install it just via the CC app and there is no stand alone installer on line.

                              I know its not a feature request and its very specific request :)

                              • Sketchy/squiggly looking borders for early wireframes (hand-drawn, napkin sketch look)

                                Have the ability to set the global borders thicker and sketchy/squiggly looking. It sounds slightly ridiculous (although very true), but every time I showcased wireframes with squiggly lines at stake holder meetings/reviews/etc, people have a better tendency to understand that it's work in progress and focus more on the core issues at hand.

                                When the lines are straight, comments regarding spacing, type, color, copy tend more to be part of the conversation and it's a constant battle to remind people that these are still work in progress.

                                • Responsive artboards / adaptive layout constraints for resizing

                                  Similar to Edge Reflow, it would be great to have the ability to prototype responsive design ideas with a fluid, flexible canvas. Web designers need a good tool for this there really isn't anything out there to test out responsive design solutions.

                                  • Copy from XD & paste into Illustrator (or Photoshop)

                                    For any given vector pieces, to be able to copy from XD and cut to illustrator. We can do it in the other way for now, but it would be great if it could work the other way too.

                                    To rework an icon for example, or trick an object with more advanced tools like in illustrator. Why ? It's faster than to export to svg and export it back again. It would also allow to keep your objects scaled the same way.

                                      When Creative Cloud support lands, you would be able to save assets to your CC Library (e.g. vectors, bitmaps), and open them in different tools (e.g. vectors in Illustrator, bitmaps in Photoshop), then save it back to your Library, updating all instances where they’re being used. Would that help your use case?

                                    • Artboard Overlays (sidebar / menu / popup) in interactive prototypes

                                      Hi there, currently the only interaction is a page switch with some easing functions, but when you click a button, it would be nice that you van select a artboard that you can use as a "overlay" over another artboard. So that way you can create lightboxes in your protytype.

                                        It would be 'nice' to have one company offer a way to present prototypes, etc without a "Made with .." credit.

                                        As paying customers (Creative Cloud) it would be great to have my business logo and name on all outwardly facing Preview material.

                                        • Preview in browser for web fonts / render text exactly like browser will

                                          When I design for the web, it's crucial to be able to see the fonts exactly as they will display on a web browser. I use Typecasto for this and I would love to be able to see this integrated in XD.

                                            Could you post some examples of font that render differently in XD vs. your browser? (And also please tell us which browser, on what OS)
