  1. Line height: 1 - Option to remove all space around text box.

    It would be great to be able to set the line height of text to 1, so the text box is the same height as the largest letter in the text. This would enable the visual distance to be the same as the distance from the box model of the object.

    Sketch sucks at this so if you want text to be visually 10px away from another object the distance when inspecting would show 6px or something because the extra padding around the text box sue to the line-height.

    • Import Illustrator / AI

      Import Illustrator file with options to select layers and/or artboards.

      This would increase ease of use and workflow, so a user is not always switching between apps.

      • Please make an iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support

        I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.

        A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

        • Blend Modes

          It would be awesome to have blending modes in the sidebar.

          • Change color of an ai-file

            I would like to be able to bring in my ai icons and change the color of them in XD, it would be so much easier than temporarily changing the color of the icon in illustrator.

            • Linked Objects / Images

              Option to link objects (or generate smart objects) when pasted from a PSD or AI source to maintain a reference.

              This would provide a simple method for single or multiple object updates (beyond the CC Design Libraries integration)—saving time and ensuring all objects are the most current.

              Example: Revision to a microphone icon via Illustrator, which is used across 20 artboards

              • Scrub values by dragging mouse in the property inspector

                Like in Photoshop, when you click on a label the belongs to a value text field, you should be able to drag to increase or decrease that number value.

                • Export to Muse CC

                  It would be so useful to layout your designs in XD and then to export them straight to muse in the .muse format to refine or to be able to open an XD widget in Muse to prototype your iPhone layout, for example.

                  • Vertical Alignment of text in text box

                    Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.

                    • Ability to define wire color

                      Being able to select the color for the connectors not only makes it easier for me to understand the interactions better at a glance but when I share the wireframes with developers it gives more clarity to the progression of interactions.

                      • Color Blindness Compliance/WCAG Accessibility Tools

                        I would like to see an ON/OFF switch to test for color conflicts with regard to 508 compliance.

                        This is valuable to me because I design for a large company and we need to make sure that everything tests fine against 508 compliance, which includes color conflicts for color blindness and deficiencies.

                        • InDesign integration

                          Would like XD to work with InDesign in much the same manner that AI and PSD files do. This might be more of a feature request for InDesign however I imagine they both play a role in working together.

                          Ultimately, in order for a design to be implemented correctly, we need to provide a detailed UI specification for engineering. This specification is often worked on by interaction and visual designers which is part of what makes InDesign an ideal solution for us.

                          The prototyping functionality is great for communicating how a design could work, but we still need an accompanying…

                            • Record screen & clicks while using shared prototype online (user testing)

                              well it doesn't make sense why you can only record the video when someone is on your computer trying out the prototype, and just thinking you should be able to record how someone is using it when they are overseas

                              • Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour

                                Most of modern apps have some custom behaviour - for example

                                In user profile, you see big profile picture, but when you scroll down to see user posts - picture gets smaller and moves to the corner.

                                Would be cool to be able to treat scroll position as kind of keyframes timeline, where you can modify styles of some elements and tween them depending on how much some view is scrolled.

                                Some tools have kind of similar option - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRHuAq4PqQo - check first 30 secs.

                                • Repeat grid - move next row down when adding content makes items bigger

                                  I don't know it's considered as a bug or if it's beaucause it's not final yet.

                                  1. 0.5.0.4 Beta

                                  2. Having a repeat grid with content in it already. Trying to add new element within the groups of the grid (which because of the logic of no layers, adds the object in each duplicate). Finally, move the whole group (normally considered as the reference object for the grid) to adjust the spacing in height of the content.

                                  3. I was hoping when I drag the repeat grid handle down, the following content would take in account the respacing.

                                  4. It…

                                    Hi Winnie,

                                    Thank you for your feedback! We already have a feature in the backlog for adjusting the cell size based on the content and that will solve the issue you describe. Currently the size of the repeat grid cells is fixed and only their padding adjustable.

                                    Kind regards,
                                    Florin

                                  • Export size options (e.g. export only 2x version)

                                    The ability to select my sizes for export would be nice. At times I work on apps (as strange as it may sound) that do not require all resolutions of artwork (1x, 2x, 3x) An option to select my would be great. Similar to how Sketch handles it.

                                    • Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

                                      I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

                                      • Change an interaction's start point

                                        I would like to be able to change an interaction's start point after I've already set it. In my scenario going from a low-fidelity to high-fidelity design, there were certain objects I wanted to swap in for existing hot spots.

                                        • Ability to change the default preview segue when using keyboard arrows

                                          Looks like when previewing using the keyboard arrows, the segue used is Slide Left. It would be nice if it respected the segue setup in Prototype.

                                          If that is not possible, it would be nice to allow user to change the global segue to something else.
