      • Commit artboard title renaming with Esc key (don't cancel edit)

        Right now if I edit an artboard title then hit the Escape key, the title reverts back to its previous text. However, when I edit a textbox and hit the esc key, the change is kept. The result of this inconsistency is that I'm constantly discarding my changes to artboard titles because I forget to use enter instead of esc to close the edit mode. This is causing me frustration and loss of accuracy in my designs. I would like to have the ability to finalize changes to the title using esc as well as enter.

        I understand the use…

        • Disable IDs in SVG export

          I'm a frontend developer and we export SVG's to use them inline in our HTML.

          When you export an SVG (non-minified) you will see that all your paths/polygons etc. have id's attached to them. To avoid having multiple ID's it would be great if you can turn this off.

          I noticed that the minified export does this however it would be great if you can also do this for non-minified versions, since sometimes we still have to edit the SVG a bit, or add custom classes/id's when manipulating elements within the SVG.

          • Collapse / Expand all folders in the layers panel.

            The ability to collapse / expand all folders in the layers panel, similar to photoshop (Hold Alt + Click on folder to collapse or expand).

            Most elements / symbols have a hand full of layers inside each. These add up after an artboard or so worth of design and having to manually collapse each individual group of layers individually can take up a bit of time.

            Would just be a bit of a time save for those of use who spend a lot of time organising our layers.

            • Photoshop's "Scrubby Zoom"

              (Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)
              I've seen newer implementation of the Zoom tool updated for the Mac version.

              However I don't think I've seen "Scrubby Zoom" implemented.

              Currently many users don't use a track pad. Using a marque selection is a slower multi-step process to zoom. Using the mouse wheel to zoom also isn't nowhere as fast as the Photoshop's "Scrubby Zoom".

              To see what I mean in Photoshop (Windows keyboard shortcut), hold CTRL + Space Bar, and use your mouse to left click & hold, and move from left to right. You'll see your document scrubby zoom, in…

                • Export all symbols

                  hi,

                  Xd allows to us to make some basic symbols, it would be very usefull to be able to export those symbols individually out of XD.
                  It would speed up my process from designing website to putting img in html.

                  • Widgets and Interactions built on Cases

                    I'd like to have the ability create/download/share interactive widgets that work on logical cases and states. The cases would also allow a wide array of interactions styles (on click, on mouse drop, on drag, on release etc.). The states would allow widgets to respond to cases (for example a set of controls can be active or inactive depending on the state of a particular widget). Without the ability to create logical cases it seems like XD is very limited.

                    • Define different interactions for the same element

                      Need to have a active buttons, when a press the button and hold, have a action.
                      Example: I have a button when i press, i go to other page, but if I hold button, it's change a color.

                      • Font Management and Glyph Selection Support

                        For me, there are two very important features (included in Adobe illustrator) that are preventing me from using this application:
                        1. Being able to use a dedicated font folder (no need to load a font as a system resource)
                        2. Being able to to select and use Unicode glyphs (Private Use Area) so I can continue to create and use icon fonts.

                        • Similar optical paragraph alignment to InDesign

                          When your paragraph is center aligned but there is a space in the end of the line, InDesign can justify the paragraph optically, so that the empty space is neglected.

                          On the other hand PS, AI, AE and now Xd make use of that empty space and the visible text will not be centered. That's just stupid, right?

                          Make all the type settings as clever as ID, which is obviously the only app with professional understanding of type. Thanks!

                          XD is super great and I can't wait for it to develop!

                          • Export: Customize File Names and Structures

                            On export, bring up a dialog that allows you to customize size and naming scheme for each file and save that as a template/preference. Not everyone wants to follow the Android directories. So it would be nice if we could export images into one directory with names (e.g. logo_640.png, logo_480.png...or...logo.png, logo@2x.png, etc.

                            • XD Mobile App shouldn't require CC Login

                              Currently the XD mobile app requires you to log in with a CC account.

                              If the phone is attached via USB, it would be nice if you can view the selected artboards in XD w/o being forced to signing in first.

                              This will help for teams that share various testing devices so that they dont need to constantly sign in/out of each device they use.

                                • Deep link prototype URL to Show-comment, Show-navigation

                                  Hi Team
                                  Can you please
                                  Deep link prototype URL to Show-comment, Show-bottom-navigation even in fullscreen,

                                  it could be combinations of any of these
                                  www.xd.com/xyz?fullscree&navigation
                                  www.xd.com/xyz?fullscree&comments
                                  www.xd.com/xyz?comments

                                  It hard to know that there is some comments on prototype or at least a "comment icon" with some number on it to get idea there are comments.

                                  Thanks for implementing fullscreen

                                    • Intersection is misaligned

                                      When using Intersection in 0.6.20.7 Beta, the resulting object is misaligned from the two shapes position. See GIF below:

                                      Thanks.

                                        Hi there,

                                        Thank you for getting in touch. This is currently the expected behavior, though we are hoping to improve it in the future. When you create a boolean group including an image, the image then becomes a fill for the resulting path. The image will be scaled to cover the path, similar to the css background-property value “cover”.

                                        If you want the image to stay in place, I would suggest using a Mask instead, which will keep the relative size / position of the image intact.

                                        You might be interested in checking out two topics over in the feature request forum:

                                        More flexibility when using images as a fill:

                                        Multiple users should be able to work on one file without creating conflicting files. Ideally users could work on different artboards without conflict a la Powerpoint.

                                        Users should also be able to see who is currently editing the same file.

                                        • Hide selection border when changing an object's shadow

                                          Not sure if this has already been flagged, but I find the following behaviour really annoying:

                                          1. Create a button made of a rectangle + some text on top. Group these two layers.

                                          2. Double click to select only the rectangle

                                          3. Change the shadow settings in order to add a subtle little shadow below the button

                                          As you can see, there is a blue border around the button, which is displayed when you select an object belonging to a group.
                                          This blue border is preventing me to see my shadow being drawn and understand if I like it or…
