    • 8-point grid system compatibility features

      Many design systems of large orgs are now based on the 8-point grid system, and other UI designers use it as a personal framework for designs with good horizontal and vertical rhythm. XD has a few limitations when trying to work in this system.

      The grid -

      Please allow the square grid to be centered on an artboard, so the artboard doesn't have to be in dimensions that are divisible by 8px. This way if it's an odd sized artboard or if it's resized the margins are even on both sides rather than having the right side chop off in…

      • Shared prototype relative rendering (e.g. page jump when navigating)

        When sharing a prototype with different height pages the web rending tries to fit as much as the page as possible leading to odd rendering when navigating across pages. Screens that are the same width should render from the top left-hand corner down - so if a long page is present scrolling is used, if a short page it will render as much and stop (not scale to fill the area) this way common elements of the screen (navigation) are always in the same place. having the same size artboard should not be needed - only a common width should…

        • Invert background and stroke color with one button

          Similar to Illustrator where you can easily flip background and stroke color, it would be nice to have this in XD as well when experimenting with color options.

          • Covert text to paths when exporting svg

            • Text stays editable in the original document
            • I won't have to convert all texts to paths manually (which can be a lot of work)

            • Design Specs, hard to view specs of grouped/layered elements

              Hard to view specifications of every element in a group/layer. For developers it seems better not to group anything, so they can view every item and layer (like overlays, highlighted text, etc.). But even then one cannot see all colors of the layers in one element (when you show different states of button, you add a 30% black overlapping layer on top of a color). A solution would be to show all layers, and make them selectable.

                • need a way to know if a font is not supported in XD mobile

                  when I'm working in XD and I'm selecting fonts, I need a way to tell if that font is NOT supported on XD Mobile.

                  this would also be super helpful in Typekit

                  • Published Prototype Interactions too Subtle

                    Loving the updates but my clients are confused. As a designer, the prototype layout makes sense — As a non-designer, it's not clear what actions should be taken.

                    I think the Invision prototype screen is initially more intuitive. For instance, it first opens in fullscreen mode (allowing for that first look excitement from the client) but has a sticky container that clearly tells the viewer they can take more actions to view and add comments and see additional artboards.

                    In short, I think the prototype needs to be catered more towards clients.

                    Thank you!

                    • enable links

                      It would be useful if you enable links in the prototype. For instance, take a look at this prototype (the first slide):

                      https://xd.adobe.com/view/bca05c2e-93a8-4917-9a7d-559de7d03244/

                      Links are unclickable or untappable. It’s something so native to the Internet and contrary to what everyone expects from an online resource.

                      It would also be useful if we can embed videos that way. Take a look at this prototype (click or tap on the first slide; go to Sign In; click or tap on the User Name field; click or tap on the keyboard; click or tap on the Sign In button; go to Health Session;…

                      • Shared links lack the ability to copy text

                        Once a prototype is published and shared the text lacks the ability to be copied. This makes working with a remote team more difficult. It would be very helpful for developers to copy and paste the text to avoid the time and human errors of re-typing. Please add this function to the published prototype links.

                        • Be able to "Reorder Artboards" once published.

                          Allow the admin to reorder the artboards after publishing by reordering which boards get viewed when. The export continuously messes up the order and updated the actual document seems to have no effect - along with having to move multiple artboards just so the web view is correct is counter intuitive but a quick page reorder view web view would help.

                          • New Guide Layout

                            There needs to be a "New Guide Layout" feature, same as in Photoshop, so that the user can create a baseline grid. See screenshot attached.

                            This is VERY important.

                            Grids, guides, and baseline grids, need be implemented.

                            Thank you!

                            • Repeat Grid Drop Shadow Behaviour

                              Not so much a feature, but I'm wondering if there's a way to make repeat grids and drop shadows play together a little more friendly - right now, drop shadowing then repeat gridding causes the drop shadows to be cut out.

                                I would really like to see the masking features of Photoshop in Xd. In terms of masking Xd is really lacking. People would really appreciate if they can use the shortcuts like Alt+click on layer to direct mask and other similar features of photoshop.

                                Its really frustrating to keep switching between Photoshop and Xd while making an UI

                                • Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

                                  Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

                                  At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

                                  Thanks!

                                  Best regards,
                                  Guy

                                  • Show link to export folder, when export is complete

                                    I would like to see a link to my export folder (or open the export folder automatically) when my export is complete.

                                    It would optimize my workflow, since I use my exported assets immediately. F.ex. to use in invision etc... now I have to browse separately to the folder.

                                    Example:
                                    In Balsamiq a small link is shown "go there", in the confirmation message when my export is complete.

                                    other suggestion: maybe an additional checkbox in the export settings: "open folder when complete".

                                    It's a small feature, but every 10 seconds per export I can save, would make me happy :)

                                        • include appearance properties into assets

                                          Hi guys, first thanks for creating this tool
                                          should be great if we can change the properties for the appearance like the fonts or colors (into assets), because sometimes I reuse components and I need to change those properties selecting one by one afterthat, I change appareance from sidebar and It isnot working well

                                          thanks
