  1. symbol

    There should be a way to change content in a symbol in the same way that you can change content in grid repeats. The grid repeat function is awesome, but it won't work across pages. Often you may want to make a unit that can be reused across pages, and updated stylistically at the same time. There is a function for this in Sketch using the Craft plugin with data, but there is no equivalent function here.

    • 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.

      • USB Support for Windows.

        The Usb-cable support is need in the Win version badly. There are quite a few steps to preview and test apps on phones/tablets right now.

        Today one need to open project from Creative cloud within app. No live updates even tho project is saved in CC.
        Need to reopen the file.

        • Collapse / Expand all folders in the layers panel.

          The ability to collapse / expand all folders in the layers panel, similar to photoshop (Hold Alt + Click on folder to collapse or expand).

          Most elements / symbols have a hand full of layers inside each. These add up after an artboard or so worth of design and having to manually collapse each individual group of layers individually can take up a bit of time.

          Would just be a bit of a time save for those of use who spend a lot of time organising our layers.

          • Please change your zoom-key as Spacebar+mw' instead of 'Ctrl+MW'.(Windows)

            The reason is that 'Ctrl+Mouse Wheel' for zooming is very uncomfortable due to 'Space+left Mouse press' for moving your mouse pointer. Additionally, touchpads for Windows are not able to move your mouse pointer to left or right.

            • Export All Screens + Annotations to PDF with custom layout

              We need to deliver a pdf containing screens and annotations to clients and developers, in addition to the prototype. Currently our choices are either InVision's generated PDF, or creating our own PDF in InDesign, which is time consuming but necessary since we need to add branding, copyright, date, version, etc.

              If we can create a custom PDF template, and then export the entire project (Screens and annotations) using that template as a layout, it would save a huge amount of time.

                • Move the lock/hide buttons

                  I am always annoyingly clicking on the lock and show/hide buttons when working with the layers palette! I only work on my laptop, so real estate matters. I keep the layers palette narrow (the default setting), so when looking in a 4-deep nested group in a symbol, I hardly see the text description. And since those buttons don't appear until you hover over an object, I'm always accidentally locking my objects without actually selecting them as I intended.

                  Please consider moving them or floating them off the panel, perhaps only in a narrow view. Or letting me lock/hide them by…

                          • 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.

                            • Allow the user choose the artboard to share

                              In my opinion, when the user have been sharing a link the application could allow that the user chooses the artboard, because the dialog show: Start at: ...., but sometimes the user work with several artboards, one can show a specific.
                              Another thing, the label "Share Again" could be changed to "Create new link", it was very confusing and I had to think for a moment to know that there I could repeat the action.

                              • [SVG export] Control ID's

                                I'm a frontend developer and we export SVG's to use them inline in our HTML.

                                When you export an SVG (non-minified) you will see that all your paths/polygons etc. have id's attached to them. To avoid having multiple ID's it would be great if you can turn this off.

                                I noticed that the minified export does this however it would be great if you can also do this for non-minified versions, since sometimes we still have to edit the SVG a bit, or add custom classes/id's when manipulating elements within the SVG.

                                    • duplicate artboard tweak

                                      When option dragging an existing artboard, the new artboard is placed above the existing one in the artboards panel. I think this is not logical. It should be places under the existing artboard. In most cases, duplicating an artboard is done to continue in the flow of thought, which should be left to right or top to bottom.

                                      • Decrease loading time while clicking through prototype

                                        While clicking through prototypes via de share link, it takes a lot of time for it to load pages. This is simply a no-go whilst presenting a prototype to customers.

                                        Because every screen is loaded individually, when clicking on a button it takes several seconds to only load a "rollover". This a bit awkward when sitting around the table with clients who expect a clickable website.

                                        Because online sharing is the only way to keep it clickable I have now no choice but to use Sketch instead.

                                        Thinking out loud, I would suggest doing the following:
                                        - improving the server …

                                        • Snap text box height to line spacing value

                                          Add an option to turn on line spacing snap for text boxes. This would make it easier to have consistent padding above/under text boxes no matter how many lines of text are in it.
