    • Repeat Grid elements share smart guides / snap to elements outside of Repeat Grid

      1. It would be great to see smart guides appear for elements outside of a repeat grid sometimes. In the example attached, the purple boxes are in a Repeat Grid, and I may want to line up the orange box (outside of the Repeat Grid) with one of the boxes within the Repeat Grid.

      2. Because I'm utilizing Repeat Grid for some basic things like avatars, but might have a standalone element (like type) aligned with a specific part of the Repeat Grid... and having the guides + snap to guide would help a lot!

      • Share one 'cell' template across multiple Repeat Grids on different artboards

        Create a 'repeat-grid cell template' that can be used on many artboards, or even on the same artboard where I need to separate them into categories. Edit the 'cell-template-A' and all repeat grids using that template update accordingly.

        • Ability to add rationale

          Given a set of rationales, and the ability to add a custom one, be able to add a rationale to a given design pattern or interaction. This will help with a design review. In a review, we need to explain the "why" and this would help communicate that.

            We are exploring ways to add additional notes to artboards that would be available upon certain type of exports. Is this what you are thinking of? Where would you see the rationale showing up?

          • Single-click selects objects inside the currently selected group - without need to double-click / hold Cmd

            Hi!

            I know I can directly select a non-group object no matter how deeply grouped it is by Command-clicking it. But if I want to select a group that's grouped multiple levels deep, I'm forced to double-click my way down until I reach it.

            Double-clicking multiple times in a row has annoying feel of excess effort and sluggishness, probably because the minimum elapsed time the OS needs between double-clicks in order to recognize them as separate events is way too long.

            In other products I use (OmniGraffle, Axure), single-clicking an object or a group that's one level down within an…

              • Define pixel ratio

                Some LCD pixels are non-square shape. For example, displays for industrial devices. In this case, the aspect ratio of the pixel remains close to square -- usually the difference between horizontal and vertical does not exceed 10%.

                But nevertheless, the distortion of the elements due to this distinction can sometimes be seen on the display destination (target) device.

                Propose to add the sizes for non-square pixels, and the simulation display similar to pixels on a computer screen of the designer (whose pixels are square) to display on the screen the designer was the same as it is on the screen…

                  • See a preview of the target artboard when drawing wires

                    When prototyping it is sometimes difficult to use the pick-whip to select the target screen if it is far away. The alternative is to choose the screen from the drop down menu, which I think works fine other than the fact that it requires you to be able to identify the screen is from the artboard name only. It would be helpful to see a preview of the artboard along with the name.

                    Additionally, it would be great if there was some visual cue as to what elements already have hotspots assigned to them. Right now it seems like you…

                    • Built-in file browser panel

                      Dropping images from Finder is cool, but it might not be tricky (especially if you've got single screen) to have Finder window and some element you want to have image applied visible at once.

                      Would be cool to have some kind of files browser inside XD

                      • File Properties for Imported Objects

                        A 'Properties' or Meta panel, different from a 'CSS' panel.

                        This panel would have information on imported or placed files and their attributes.

                        Files would have their source (src) property, original dimensions, size, etc. Maybe even a little thumbnail.

                        There would also be a way of changing the linked file, opening source file in associated software etc.

                        • Prototype API - Access transitions, actions and targets for artboards and elements

                          I would love to be able to access information about a project prototype setup from the API. I'm building a tool for sketch currently that enables building sketch projects to functional web and mobile applications using webpack and react. The bit that is missing from sketch (possibly could come through SilverFlows) is info about relationships between views and how to transition. I see this being a very powerful API and certainly very useful for my own selfish needs.

                            Could you provide more details of the use cases you’re trying to cover?
                            How would you like it to work? Javascript/JSON? Via terminal? Or via loading of your JS file to Adobe XD?
                            Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

                          • Prototyping: magnifying glass/loupe to help linking small elements

                            If I want to create a link from a small element like a menu item to another page, it is hard to accurately select the text and be zoomed out far enough to see the page I want to link to.

                            I know you can use the drop down to select the page, but if you want to do it visually it would be good if the area around the cursor would zoom like a loupe to enable easier selection.

                                      1a. This is two requests for a single workflow: when creating a new file after already working out of an existing file, the new screen prompted is a blank project file without artboards. To follow suite with PS/AI, ideally – being reprompted at the welcome screen to pick a new artboard to work from would be very beneficial.

                                      1b. Within the welcome screen, if the user is likely creating a custom size artboard, it would also be very convenient if the user was provided the dropdown option to see recent custom sizes to choose from (the other three default options…

                                      • Display Cursor Position X, Y coordinates

                                        Object position is updated live when you move objects. Would be nice to see cursor position as well in the right sidebar. It helps to measure object distances when the smart guides don't register.

                                          When viewing on a mobile in browser, you forgot to design the 'Loading' indication text. It sits there top left 'tucked' up in the corner.
