  1. I want to expose the design spec for each user

    Although I would like to design specs in development, but can not set the scope of disclosure, customers are not allowed to use.
    Can I make an adobe ID invitation system for design specifications?

    • Annotations on prototype connections

      We need the ability to annotate the connections between boards in prototype modes. So all the connection lines should have text that you can add, position, etc by double clicking the line. This is pretty standard in other flow tools.

      I think XD is great but you've somewhat limited the use case of it. even "prototype" mode misses the true need which is to be able to layout exactly how an application fits together and annotate why it goes from one screen to another.

          • Parent "folder" containing multiple XD projects

            Right now it seems like XD is made for the solo UX/UI designer who mainly does small freelance projects.

            For people on design teams in companies, the usability is very lacking.

            We are a team of 7 designers, working on multiple projects that sometimes interlink - but right now I share a prototype to the developers & PM, and they have to store that link somewhere.

            It'd be great if I could just give them one link say, "Company iPad project", and inside that link are all the things related to iPad - so the individual prototype links are all…

            • Managing CC Libraries in XD

              Please can you allow for the CC Library pane to stick to the window when using XD, at the moment it is considered a separate window.
              Also, it seems that you cannot make the selection to use a colour from the CC Library for the 'stroke' of an object (only the fill).
              Are you planning to allow all aspects of CC Libraries to work in XD - notice that you cannot access Graphics?

              • Default Shapes Limitations

                We need something well beyond the available square and circle, in terms of shapes. Can we import the vector shapes library from photoshop?

                Also, can we get the ability to add arrowheads to lines? For example, this can be very useful for markup in pointing out new edits or UI.

                Thank you.

                • Retain prototype target within symbol instances

                  There is a need to keep target links intact when creatiing symbols for prototype navigation.

                  If I make a nav bar with five menu items and turn it into a symbol so it can be persitant across mutliple boards, it would be nice if it retained the target links I put on those five nav items were saved with it. As it stands, the workaround is to create the nav symbol, click into the instance and assign links, then copy and paste that instance instead of pulling out a new symbol.

                  However, even there, when you paste it onto a…

                  • Key Mapping

                    The ability to switch mappings for tools would make the transition from other software and continued use much easier. For example, changing select (V) to select (W).

                    • link more XD files in one

                      For Example, when u Work as a UX Designer in Big Projects, u organize for each Steps own XD-Files.

                      i would like, to have left a Table, where i could jump from xd file to xd file.
                      In really big projects it is inefficient to have all steps in one xd file.

                      So it would be better for the organization and for the overview if i can link xd files in xd files.

                          • Allow users to change/customize the name of export files

                            I tend to work on screen flows from a single XD document but like to break them up into smaller/separate documents when exporting as .pdf for my developers. Right now I cannot name it something different while saving (I can only change the save location). This lack of renaming is true for all the exportable file types and should be added.

                            • Mark assets and bulk export and/or display on Design Specs

                              Reason I created this: Because some of the main threats about specs got completed and we are still not getting the bulk export.

                              From the receiver side:
                              I tried the specs new feature and also the export... and I'm still getting the feeling it should be all the same. same as Zeplin does, if we are sharing a specs doc to the developers, they should be able also to get all the assets right there, in one place.

                              From the design side:
                              Is really frustrating not being able to export everything at once.
                              Best scenario: being able to mark assets…

                                • Remove auto save

                                  Sometimes I open files just to copy assets to another file, and move things around. I don't undo that coz sometimes I move stuff without even being aware. But when I close XD it doesn't even ask if I want to save changes. It automatically saves changes I didn't intend to save. It's very frustrating. Please give option to disable automatic save. If it automatically saves a copy on crash it's understandable, but this saves the main file. All unintended changes get saved.

                                    • Desktop Preview: switch between screen sizes (desktop, mobile, ...)

                                      If you create an artboard and make responsive versions it would be a useful feature when you could connect the different screen sizes of that artboard (desktop, tablet landscape, tablet portrait, mobile) and than show buttons in the preview window to switch between this screen sizes.

                                        Would love to have a working ‘search bar’ where i can let people type in something so they can find it in my app.

                                        • View > Show Layout Grid should toggle on all artboards, not just selected ones.

                                          I use the new Layout Grid heavily, but because of the color shading applied by default I need to hide it across ALL artboards to review what I've designed. Would appreciate if the functionality worked more similarly to Photoshop Guide Layouts where toggling the keyboard shortcut did this across the board.
