  1. Add artboard closer to where I clicked the mouse

    When I click add new artboard, the artboard should be placed where my mouse clicks, not automatically placing at random place.

    • Concatenated pages for single-file PNG

      As with PDF files, it would be useful to have a single png file to share with clients based on selected concatenated pages based on the order selected.

      • copy as pdf

        Could it be added the function of "Copy as PDF"? When I copy and paste directly an asset or artboard to clipboard. It seems convert it to png file type now. Actually it will be more efficient than menu command "export to PDF". And in the Ai or Indesign copy as PDF to clipboard is a basic feature. Hope for that, thank you!

        • Saving color palettes - shared across documents or users

          I want to have a consistent set of swatches, with the ability to import saved palettes or to share/export a palettes. It would be nice to have access to multiple palettes as well

          • Gradient Shortcut: make it faster to add a gradient fill

            Alright, here's some feedback.

            Thanks for adding linear gradients -- an essential part of UI design. The functionality of actually using them is great, but there are a few things you could do to help speed up the process of activating the tool in the first place.

            Right now, it takes a minimum of three clicks to start using the gradient tool. That might not sound like a lot, but over the course of an hour, day, month, it adds up to a significant portion of time. Here are some base-level suggestions to improve the UX of this tool:

            • Import PDFs

              Vector assets for iOS are PDFs. Not being able to import existing assets directly sucks.

              • Import set of images with each image on its own artboard

                When you import an image into XD it will manually be placed into an artboard with the same dimensions.

                • Rotate Prototype: Preview window should adjust size automatically

                  As a user, I want to be able to switch preview screen orientation (e.g., portrait to landscape) so that The preview looks like I've physically rotated the device.

                  We have a portrait browsing experience. Users can click and watch a video in landscape mode. When trying to go back to portrait view, there seems to be some kind odd struggle in the preview window. It's not the same scale between the rotations.

                  • Make the official XD software FREEMIUM

                    Right now XD is free to use, but eventually it has to make money for Adobe. From that perspective, Adobe can consider making it a freemium product. This will help address the scenario where large organisations cannot afford buying XD for all of their developers. Yet for the designers to use XD professionally there needs to be a practical way to seamlessly hand-over the XD designs to the developers.

                    The full-fledged version of XD with all features can be no doubt purchased for the designers within the organisations. However the developers can still access the XD files using the free…

                        • Show color RGB / RGBA value

                          In our development, the programmer needs to use the RGB value to label the color, but in this update,the version removed the RGB color information, we have to need for an additional conversion to get the results.

                          • More default animations and easings

                            It would be great with a few more features/interactive animations when you link the pages. More easing options. I guess what I'm saying I would like to have more animations and effects based on what we have on websites and apps to this date.

                                      Having an asset export panel similar to the new export panel in the updated Adobe Illustrator would be amazing...it's frustrating to have to choose each individual asset and export individually, naming each asset. Even if each asset that was grouped had a prefix name of the artboard it lived on plus the number asset - that would be a major step towards saving time (Example: the artboard name is ABOUT and all of the assets that are grouped that live on the ABOUT screen export as ABOUT_1.png, ABOUT_2.png, ABOUT_3.png, etc. And if an asset is copy/pasted from one artboard to…

                                        • Repeat Grid: different SVG images in each grid cell

                                          Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
                                          My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.

                                          It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).

                                          Thank you.
