  1. Tag Layers for Specific Releases, Ability to Present Designs Per Release to Devs

    Problem:
    I often need to design with the future in mind, I need to be considering the product several releases ahead of dev. When it is time to share designs with the dev team we often spend a good portion of our conversation going over what the requirements are for the current release. Developers need to make sure what is required of them for the next release and it seems there is no way around this conversation except to spend time just removing things from the designs which I never do because, well, time.

    Example:
    1. My designs might include…

    • Assets artboard should get created automatically

      While sharing the screens to developers on the web. Assets artboard having all the icons/images should get created automatically when all the interactions / screens are done ... and icons/images are marked as assets. This way not only developers can see all the assets at one go but also can download them instantly instead of going to multiple pages and downloading assets separately. It will make designers life easy as well.

      • Artboard count

        It would be really nice to know the count of artboards in your file

        • Recover unsaved files

          Just like other Adobe products, offer users the chance to restore an unsaved file after the program or computer crashes. Acrobat example attached.

          • 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.

            • Display the "Update link" button as a primary action

              Version : 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.2.61

              Click the share button in the top right corner and select "Share again".

              The "Update link" and "New link" buttons look exactly the same. Several times I have come to press the wrong button. In 100% of the cases, I want to update the existing link. I would therefore argue that it makes sense to emphasize this as a primary action.

              • Control demo with custom keyboard inputs.

                While wireframing you could add an option to assign key to elements.
                Example-backspace/esc for the back button.

                • Run demos in fullscreen (not maximised)

                  It would be great if demos could run in fullscreen. You could add a button in the artboard properties to check/uncheck fullscreen mode.

                  • Design

                    It is very necessary to add:
                    - dotted line
                    - uppercase letter
                    - can change the border line to outside and inside
                    - moving image inside the frame. Something like a clipping mask

                      It would be nice to have the option to import symbols from other XD files. just like you can import paragraph styles from InDesign

                      • Indicate when the project is being saved visually

                        Sometime the autosave doesn't work so I started always saving, but then I don't know if I actually saved the project so I have to check if the Save in the File menu is deactivated, it would be nice to have a bar in the bottom that shows a message or a progressing bar to know that your project is being saved.

                          Hi,

                          When the file is not saved, in the title bar you see something like FileName – edited. When the save operation is performed, either because you his Ctrl+S or the autosave, the edited label should not appear in the title bar.
                          Is this good enough/working for you?

                          Cheers,
                          M.

                        • Changelog

                          Every time I update my file, I have to keep a separate document to record all the changes I made linking to the labels I placed in my XD document so that everyone in the team, especially the engineering team will know what's the difference between version 21 and version 50.

                          It would be great if Adobe XD can create a changelog automatically, and take screenshots of those changes.

                          • Copy artboard using handles

                            To keep my design clean and tidy I always copy my existing artboard with all appearances to the next spot up/down/left or right from it. I alwas have to take into consideration my zoom then to make sure the snap will keep my distance the same as from other artboards, while this could be done without careing about the zoom, nor using alt + drag.
                            Part of the functionality already exist as when you copy paste exactly this wil happen, you cannot though nor choose the direction (always paste on the right from prev) nor change the distance.
                            Of course…

                            • Option-dragging from a group should not add the item to the existing group

                              I often will make a box with text in it. I want to be able to opt-drag that text to make a copy in a different box. This works, but the text is part of the box+text group I've made rather than being created outside of the group (as doing a copy/paste command would do).

                                  • "Select nothing" shortcut in text edit mode

                                    Many designers are very used to the shortcut for selecting nothing (cmd+shift+a) especially when editing text instead of clicking away. Would be great if that worked in XD as well.

                                    • Library of mouse cursors

                                      Sometimes we have to show a mock-up and simulate mouse cursor states. It would be nice to have a ready-made library available.

                                      • Eyedropper tool for the assets panel

                                        When creating colors in the Asset panel, it would be nice to use the color picker tool and not have to have the Hex value handy. Not all mock-ups are color sensitive so this would make a nice quality of life addition.

                                        • Add color preview to the color picker

                                          It can be a bit hard to see the color of the item that I'm changing the color of, so it would be awesome to have a color preview, which could be larger than that text I'm typing, on the color picker page. The attached image shows the perfect location for it.
