    • Double click to leave isolation mode

      It's completely annoying when I trying select area in isolation mode but instead selecting some objects in the background due to Xd exiting from isolation mode.

      Please make Isolation mode same to Ai isolation mode: double click on object to enter isolation mode, double click out of object to leave isolation mode.

      • Insert new art board between two existing art boards

        After creating 10 art boards, I realised that one scenario in the middle was missed out. Now have to make a new art board and insert it in between. But now have to manually move all the art boards. Would like the space between the artboards to be uniform. Sorry if this seems like an OCD :P

          • Record video of user's face while using shared prototype online (webcam)

            Just seeing where they click is not enough. We need to know what they feel like as well!!

            For user testing

            • Set spacing between objects to a specific number of pixels

              Adobe Fireworks style specific alignment in pixels.

              Set spacing vertically or horizontally, by typing a specific number value into the panel.

                  • Scale stroke and corners on resize

                    When scaling objects, the stroke should have the option of scaling proportionately. I have yet to test corners, effects, or patterns.

                    Illustrator has this concept via a selection/ option.

                    • [shortcut] Option + shift + arrow keys to duplicate objects

                      1. Similar to the rest of the creative suite, the ability to click on an object (text or object) and holding down option + moving that object with arrow keys (while also holding down shift) to duplicate the object.

                      2. Quickest and most painless path to duplicating objects over click + copy + paste imho.

                      • Export to nested folders

                        The ability to name artboards and assets with some criteria (for example, a forward slash: "ARTBOARD1/IMAGE2/iOS/BACKGROUND") which would automatically generate nested folders upon export.

                        • Change number values in active field using scroll wheel

                          It is terrible to re-type eg. font-size values using keyboard.

                          • Tight integration with Illustrator and Photoshop: create artwork in PS/AI, import into XD, add interaction in XD

                            I think most of us in the industry already use AI and/or PS as our primary design tool. It would have been awesome if XD was a tool that focused on simply adding interactivity to artwork that was imported from AI or PS. AI and PS already have all the editing capabilities... why do you want to add them again in XD. It seems like the goal was to create an answer to Sketch, rather than enabling existing Adobe users to rapidly create interactive prototypes. Adobe's core strength is in AI and PS... and you could have hit it out…

                            • Export to Adobe Animate CC to add animation

                              It would be great to have an integration with adobe ANIMATE CC therefore just to make some code snippets, and the backbone codification, but to have all the assets linked as screens in the timeline of Adobe animate cc would be great, improving the time that an app can need to be published.

                              • Automatically slide other artboards out of the way when moving / reordering

                                It would be nice to be able to precisely swap the position of two artboards by dragging and holding a modifier key. So for instance, if there are three artboards in a row, I could hold CMD while dragging artboard 1, and as I hover between artboards 2 and 3, artboard 2 moves to the left to make room to drop artboard 1.

                                    • Design focus oriented UI

                                      On many household electronics objects, the User Interface (UI) is Focus oriented: the user move a focus with buttons to select and validate an UI object. For example on TV UI like Apple tvOS, Android TV, Amazon FireTV, connected TV, etc., or on Waterproof objects like the Pebble Watch, or on very small and low-cost products like many connected objects (IOT).

                                      • 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.

                                        • Lock Artboards

                                          It's easy to accidentally click on the label (i.e. iPhone 6) and move an artboard when working with design elements close to the boundaries.
