  1. Auto Arrange Artboard Layout in Prototype Mode

    I'd love to have some auto arrangement in prototype mode, which might be really helpful when screens get too much and organising them turns into pain. I've seen other softwares dealing with this kind of problem very neatly.

    • Alt + scroll mouse wheel zoom is opposite of PS/AI/etc...

      1. I noticed that alt + scroll mouse to zoom has an inverted behavior from the existing paradigms that the rest of the creative suite (like Photoshop and Illustrator) set. For example: scrolling up zooms in within XD while it zooms out within PS/AI. The request is to make XD's scroll consistent with the paradigms the rest of the creative suite has set with mouse scroll zoom.

      2. Inconsistent and unexpected feature behavior, especially when moving between PS/AI and XD.

      • Export: PNG 8 and PNG8 with alpha channel

        Would like support for PNG8 and PNG8 with alpha channel. (as an example, I exported a single asset from XD and it came in at 4 K. I took that same asset and opened it in fireworks, and exported as PNG 8 with not loss of quality and it exported at 1.5 KB... this becomes even more useful with larger assets or sprite sheets where the difference could be between 400 KB vs 150 KB.

        • Better Anchor Point Manipulation

          - Anchor Points are a bit tough to manipulate. The manipulation right now is too 'free'.

          - Points only align to other points within the same vector object and not boundaries, points or edges of other shapes.

          There should be object and point snapping as well as holding shift to snap to axis etc.

          • Measurements in the PI for multi-selected objects (show width/height of overall selection)

            When selecting multiple objects, XD doesn't show width/height of combined elements! It only shows it when objects are grouped. This is valuable because I can see the quick measurements of, for example; grouped images that spread for 12 columns. That way I can eliminate possible measurements errors.

            • Reset Bounding Box (don't match rotation of shape/path)

              Please implement a ‘Reset Bounding Box’ function for drawn vector shapes. They conflict with alignment and centring.

              • Record only a portion of the Preview window

                I'd like the ability to crop a section of a prototype when recording.

                For example, if I want to record a video of clicking through a form, I don't need to show the entire layout — just the relevant section.

                This would result in a better visualization tool, as well as smaller video or gif file sizes.

                  • Alternating Colors for rows and columns in Repeat Grid

                    Being able to create alternating colors to rows or columns after using the repeat grid tool. Very useful for when creating tables that need visual separations between data.

                    • Emoji in text

                      I'd love to be able to include emojis in texts when I'm designing.

                      In fact I'd love to be able to include my own icons, pasted into texts, similar to what you can do with indesign!

                      • XD vs Xd - XD looks like emoticon?

                        I don't know how about you guys, but each time I see XD like #AdobeXD on twitter etc. I think for like 0,1s about this crazy emoticon I was using a lot when I was young boy.

                        So then I decided to be serious and I was looking at this Adobe XD and tried to take it from branding perspective and even I thought it really looks good, but then, after few hours I've forgot about that, seen it again and again I thought about this crazy face.

                        Is it only me?

                        What you think about putting more pressure to…

                                There are many applications where the interface is navigated with input devices like game controllers. It would be great if we could get some support for these.

                                • Type integration into draw objects

                                  1. Ability to type words (with basic alignment properties) into rectangles, ellipses, and lines – and having the type and draw object always be the same associated object (as opposed to a separate type box that mimics the original draw shape as seen in PS when typing onto a vector shape).

                                  2. Easy flow chart creation, text within objects (like mocking up a text field or creating a button). Reduces complexity of objects to use within a working file. Also shaves off a little bit of time for something that a user will be doing frequently in certain parts of…

                                  • Detach / float properties panel to allow for multiple display use

                                    It would be great to have the ability to 'detach' / 'tear off' the properties panel from Xd to accommodate use on multiple displays. (Like Ps panels)

                                    This would give us more room to work and use all panels etc. on a second screen or even allow for floating panels.

                                      • Change / reset an artboard's size to a stock template size

                                        When I select an existing artboard, the properties panel at the right should present the list of stock sizes (E.g., Apple Watch) for changing the size, with the current stock size selected if it's there.

                                        I don't care about the content conforming to the new size (though that would be nice).

                                        Scenario: I've created a bunch of wires and now want to show selected screens targeting a different device:

                                        Desired steps: duplicate that artboard, set it to a different stock size by selecting it at the right, resize and rearrange a bunch of stuff in the artboard.

                                        • Change anchor point appearance to classic Adobe (or provide a setting to switch to it)

                                          Million times I've heard designers from my network complaining about toy-like anchor points in Sketch. I've even read articles about this online (seriously, google it).

                                          I think that as a real-world UX and UI tool Adobe XD is supposed to provide a sense of a precise and reliable mechanism that does the job, and it's already surpassing Sketch in this aspect, but the anchor points are killing it for me.
