    • Set Default Style for Text Tool

      Description:
      Once I select a font in TEXT panel I want this font to be default font every time I use the Text tool. Until I change it again.

      Why is this valuable to you:
      Now you have to change font every time when you use Text tool — bad usability. Slows down the workflow.

      Additional request 1:
      Also, it would be nice to set a base font size for the project. So that every time I use Text tool I'm suggested this exact size.

      ----
      Additional request 2:
      Possibility to set up default global font sizes for <p>, <h1>,…

        Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.

      • Pen tool: snap curve control/tangent points to grid

        I use the handles snapping to grid functionality extensively when creating icons and other detail-intensive shapes. This is critical to my workflow.

        ---
        _Note from Adobe:_ curve _anchor_ points (the points the curve pass through) should snap to the grid already. This request is about the curve _control_ points (the two handles on either side of each anchor point, with the tangent line connecting them) snapping to the grid; this does not cause any _visible_ part of the path to align to the grid better, it just helps keep the control points organized and makes it easier to match curves…

        • VR - Virtual Reality Prototype Capability For Android Cardboard

          This might be a little forward thinking, however, I wanted to be the first to post something for VR. It is inevitable. __ Cheers.

          • Fixed elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

            Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

              • Create hotkeys/shortcuts to jump to specific artboard in Prototype / Preview navigation (custom keyboard interactions)

                When in Prototype Mode, I need a way to quickly move between multiple screens.

                A set of keystrokes that I assigned as short cuts to go to a screen:
                - CTRL + 1 = Home Page
                - CTRL + 2 = Sign Up
                etc

                This same model can then be used to jump between screens in the Preview mode.

                    • Tutorial / video demo of a developer using XD exports to make app/website

                      We have designed an app in XD. However the dev teams are resistant to accepting the shift from Photoshop to XD. We may have now redesign everything in Photoshop and revert to pixate for prototyping.

                      Can you provide a detailed video that we can show the dev that shows how exactly they can use export files from XD to code. Please stress on XD exports make their lives easier.

                      Instead of just defining the export feature, can you explain on what are the practical applications of the different types of exporting? As in - "Now that we've got all our…

                          I’ve tweaked the title so it covers only exporting animation to GIF format. This will help keep our feature list fine-grained so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.

                          For the other formats that were originally mentioned here:

                        • Adjust word spacing

                          I think it is necessary to have a tools for spacing control for words in character panel it will save designer time and will be smart process to design better

                          • Line height: should function as it does on the web

                            On the web, i often use line height to determin the height of the types container. Therefore the text should sit vertically centrally to its line height. This is different to how line height works in print.
                            I also use line height for vertical rhythm. see more info on this here:
                            http://typecast.com/blog/4-simple-steps-to-vertical-rhythm

                            vertical rhythm is a huge factor when I design for web

                            • Dedicated Export workspace to extract CSS styles, measurements, assets

                              It would be very useful having one more tab after Design and Prototype called "Export" for example. It would let developers easily see all the necessary information about any element like the size and color of the text, the size of a button and it's position on the screen, and so on, and then easily export any element. From there

                                  A way to potentially group or label pages (even just with a colored circle) would be incredibly helpful with staying organized and working through different user flows and scenarios.

                                    • Framework Integration

                                      I think it would be useful for Web Devs if this included some sort of mode for working with elements from frameworks such as Bootstrap, Angular Material e.t.c. as this would be a great addition and make it way quicker to mock stuff up if your using a framework

                                      • Zoom directly with mouse wheel when zoom text field is selected

                                        Enabling the mouse wheel to control the zoom level when having the percentage selected in the zoom input panel (like in all Adobe Design Standard software).

                                        This makes it easier to focus on all artboards at once providing an overview of the project as opposed to using the cursor+alt+scroll wheel, which focuses on where the cursor is currently located.

                                        • Repeating Grid - insert row/column after or before a cell

                                          Being able to add and remove rows and columns from a repeating grid. Sometimes text are real, like an app menu for example, so this feature would be very helpful.
