    • Better PDF export options - color profiles and presets

      I would like to see the Illustrator export to PDF window, where you have presets and total control over the PDF creation.
      Right now I had a day work, exported it as PDF pages and was terrified by the colors and quality. Had to redo all the work in Illustrator again...

      So PDF export options and color profile choices.

      • Release every 2 weeks

        Hi. I'm a heavy user of Adobe and I am super fascinated by Adobe Experience Design.
        I am using it for real projects and I am looking forward to the cool requests of other users that are implemented already but not published yet. There were already some requests of customers that Adobe Experience Design can not offer yet but perhaps in the near future.
        I am suggesting a 2 weeks agile sprint for the development team.
        The team concentrates on one or a couple of features / bugs they want to implement or fix. The advantage is that the user…

        • Multiline text box adjustment in repeat grid

          In repeating grids, it would be great if there was a way to adjust the position (x,y) of objects adjacent to text boxes based on the width and height of their content.

          For example, designing a comments UI, it would be nice to have multiline text that varies from 1-5 lines that would push the elements below it to match the margins set in the original instance. So if you have a "reply" link below the multiline text it would move +y to match the intended layout.

          • Dynamic translation of text in my design

            I'm creating an app which will need to be converted into multiple languages. It would be great to see integration with some like Google Translate in order to view my design in multiple languages.

            Whilst not perfect, this would give me a good idea of any issues that may arise down the development line.

            • Flatten layers to a single rasterized layer

              Be able to flatten layers into a rasterized layer.
              Right now, I need to export a layer to flatten it, then bring it back into an artboard in order to apply a blur effect. It would be nice to not have to leave Xd and then drag in an image. It disrupts the workflow a bit.
              *nice to have

              • Stacking or grouping artboards into collections

                Stacking artboards can help to clear space for working and rearranging artboards.

                Also we can stack artboards by size or type.

                • Noun Project Integration

                  Integrating with https://thenounproject.com/ app on Mac would really speed up the process flow of applying icon sets into the app design.

                  I'm currently hopping from the noun project app, to Adobe Illustrator before copying across to XD. It would be good to miss out the middle man and just drag straight to XD.

                  Thanks!

                  • Assign artboard to a device for preview

                    It would be great if I could give a artboard a device that is connected, so I can preview iPhone artboards on my connected iPhone, same for my iPad and so on. That would work pretty well with multiple device setups.

                    • Radial Gradients

                      Add Radial Gradients support. Let's discuss.

                      (Btw: Linear Gradients are now shipping. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12925683-add-gradients-to-appearance-panel)

                      ----
                      Note: radial gradients are shaped like concentric circles. If you're looking for gradients that sweep around like the hands of a clock, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15902767-angular-gradient instead!

                      • User permissions for collaboration

                        For the library, is it possible to have user controls for the user who can be the following:

                        Admin - like a super user, can ad new, modify, and remove artwork from the library. also can manage the users who have controls to the artwork / project.

                        Manager - who is managing and preview the assets but don't have the power to modify the artwork.

                        User 1 - designer who can upload, add new, modify, and remove the artwork asset to the library

                        User 2 - designer who can re-use the artwork from the library but doesn't have the access…

                          • Allow multi-selection of an object in a symbol and an object outside of a symbol

                            I can't select those two objects (Attachment / Red dots). The reason I want to select them is because I want to align them.

                              It would be a great time saver to click on a layer and than on a "Create Symbol" button, instead of having to right-click or to switch to the "Symbol-mode"

                              • Indicate which artboard is currently active on mobile device in XD window

                                When users have their mobile device tethered to their machine via USB and are viewing a prototype on that device, as the user traverses through screens it would be helpful to indicate on the computer on the XD canvas which dartboard is currently being shown on the mobile device.

                                This would be to help track screen flow as you click through a complex prototype.

                                • Integrate randomuser.me service for automatic User assets generation

                                  Anybody working in this field knows the "randomuser.me" web service.
                                  Randomuser.me service is an essential tool for automatic User assets generation.
                                  AdobeXD should integrate it. It is has simple API, and it is free.
                                  This would make out lives much easier. Manually creating users profiles every time is something that can make a designer cry...

                                    • Move/dock Symbols and Layers panel to the right side

                                      Allow palettes to be moved to one side of the screen.

                                      The default location of palettes force you to constantly move from far left to far right of a large monitor - it's actually quite painful when you're used to having all palettes/tools on one side and your artwork on the other.

                                      • Embed Controls from External Control packages

                                        For many of my clients with web based projects we'll use several control suites such as Telerik Kendo UI, DevExpress DevExtreme, jQuery UI, Bootstrap, or Infragistic controls. It would be stellar if we could import the control packages based on the provided JS and CSS in order to make use of those controls out of the box. An example of why this would be great is many of the controls in these suites might not be possible at all with XD... a progress bar, timer, data grid... but they're needed at times to display crucial UI elements.

                                        • Unwanted artifacts on PDF Exports

                                          Export options should be more robust. I also find unwanted borders on some elements (a tile design with shadow) when exported to a PDF.

                                            I’m separating out this feature to focus on PDF export issues, as we have many export option suggestions already in the system. I highly suggest you search for specific features you’re looking for in export.

                                            Thanks,

                                            -Elaine
