  1. Save export location with file

    Currently the default location to export your assets is the last location used. I work in several different projects throughout the day and need to export to different locations. It would be great if the default location for exporting assets stayed with the individual XD file instead of being system wide.

    • Allow people to become watchers of a prototype

      Allow people to become watchers of a prototype so when the document is updated they could get updates to check it out.

      Bonus points if it can highlight what's new.

      This would be great because I'm working on something and my manager works remotely and feeding back as i'm working. I'f she and others were notified when it gets updated then it would save me a manual email every time I make a change.

      • Show/edit Gradient stop position as precise number

        The gradient fill, in it's current form, does not show what position (from 0 to 1, or 0 to 100) the stop is located, like in other popular adobe applications such as Illustrator and Photoshop. This means that if I want the accurate position for each stop I have to export it to SVG and open it in Illustrator. This makes it really hard to make gradients with a middle fade accurately, and since there is no way to actually save the gradient as a swatch, you're stuck eyeballing it.

        • Editing layout of Repeat Grid content should adjust total size of grid to avoid overlap / keep padding fixed

          When selecting multiple items and making a repeating grid, for example when making a list where each row has multiple items, moving one of the original items does not repeat the grid. this results in text being clipped at the edges of the grid and/or getting overlapped by the next repeat.

          • Option to make (Guest) comments only visible for owner

            I'm currently testing one of my designs in XD.

            I've shared my design with some users so they could leave their feedback by using the comment en pin tool.
            Those comments are visible for everyone what could influence the users comments by reading other users comments.

            I think i would be great if the owner can decide whom can view the comments and mark them as invisible when desired.

            • Export on drag out of layers panel

              I’d love to be able to drag individual (or more at the same time) selected artboards and groups from the Layers panel out of XD, making it export as PNGs.

              That way I can quickly share my designs with other people – drag and drop to Slack, email, messages etc., similar to how in Sketch you can drag the little previews from the right panel.

              • Move the Comment field to the top of the page

                Hello,
                Would you please consider moving the Comment field to the top of the panel (just under the icons) because when you first open comments, it appears at the bottom of the screen and it feels too far away from where you just clicked. It took me and several others several glances to see where it was.

                Thanks so much,
                Mark

                • Choose image compression level on images creating a prototype

                  When creating a prototype link - if you could set an image compression level that would save stakeholders waiting for an age when waiting to viewing the prototype. In a number of cases actually using the prototype link as a presentation tool, it is just not efficient enough to be consistently viable as a choice.

                  • Allow images linked from the web as assets in the file

                    Display in image assets option the used file. In addition, display is it a link or embedded.

                    This would also be a good location for the feature request:
                    Reload asset images automatically's manual reload button.

                        Ability to view team prototypes. Similar to how you can view team assets. So that I as a creative director, or other team members can quickly find and reference prototypes completed by other team members

                        • Find and replace to batch rename artboards

                          Renaming artboards with find and replace functionality. This is important, because when you export your boards, your artboard name is included. Things change, branding requests alter and now you could have a word in a name that is no longer relevant / obsolete. If I could do a find and replace, at least if I am consistent with my naming approach, this can lead to organization appearing based upon how I name my layers (point #1 above) and then adjust as needed.

                          Example:
                          brand_usage_section_step01

                            • Load a URL inside a container object

                              The idea is to be able to leverage content already on the web via a URL, for prototyping purposes.

                              It could be as simple as the following:

                              1. Add a new "Web container" type of object
                              2. Double-click for a popup asking for the URL, press enter

                              The content could load right away. Xd could take a snapshot of it so that it doesn't slow things down in Design mode, but in Proto mode it would of course show live content.

                              There would also be more options, like enabling/disabling vertical and horizontal scrolling for the container.

                              • Improve font alignment

                                フォントを揃える時に誤差があります
                                例えばテキスト入力ボックスをデザインする時横長の長方形に一行テキストを置いてデザインしますが、長方形とテキストを両方選んで垂直方向で中央揃えをするとテキストを選択した状態でテキスト上に余白がありそれも計算して中央揃えするのでテキストが長方形に対して微妙に下になります。
                                中央揃えしたあとにテキストだけ若干上に上げるような操作が必要となります。
                                この点改善してください。

                                For example, when designing a text input box, design one line text in a landscape rectangle, but if you select both rectangle and text and center it in the vertical direction, there is a margin on the text with the text selected Since it is calculated and centered, the text is slightly below the rectangle.
                                It is necessary to operate such as to raise the text only slightly after centering it.
                                Please improve on this point.

                                  • UI Kit for Adobe Creative Cloud products

                                    In addition to the default IOS, Windows, etc. UI-Kits, it would be great to have a UI-Kit for mocking up Adobe CC layouts for plugins, extensions, prototypes for suggestions, etc.

                                    • Duplicate Items in the Layers panel with Option/Alt+Drag

                                      It would be amazing to option+drag an item in the Layer's Panel. I find myself wanting to duplicate something by dragging from one folder (or symbol) to another.

                                      At the moment I can't even drag an item out of a Symbol into another folder or layer in the Layer's panel.

                                        • Set gutters of repeat grid to fractional values

                                          When attempting to use repeat grid to create column guides for responsive themes, I found that it is not possible to snap to fractional x or y values. This means that if a column is a fraction, you have two problems.

                                          First, when creating your repeat grid, you create the first column of (say) 67.5 px width. Then you create your second column of 30px and try to snap it up to the right side of the first column. It unfortunately will be .5 px to the right of the boundary instead.
                                          OK, fine, to remedy, I simply shave off…
