  1. Support Android Vectordrawable

    My group works on the vector formats used by Android (VectorDrawable for static images and Animated Vector Drawable for animated vector graphics).
    I wondered if it would be interesting to Adobe for your design tools (such as XD) to produce these assets directly, to make it easier for Android developers to work with these resources in Adobe's tools.

    • Renaming Symbols into Style Guides

      I'd feel like if Symbols could be sorted hierarchically with custom titles and groups, with symbols that are draggable like layers panel. It would be like the function of Style Guide already.

      The top right icon for symbols tab, you could do "Add New Symbol" and "Add New Group"

      Symbols can also be dragged from XD to other places like Google Docs to paste as an image.

      Then if you could export the css/html from the symbol for the developers you can start to celebrate completing the suggestions with 1k+ votes :D

      • Expand the Property Inspector to show color data

        Please expand the dat that the property inspector shows to include color codes, transparency percentage and the option to select (maybe even edit) this straight from the inspector screen instead of having to open every individual color box if you're specifying colors for a design.

        Kind of goes hand in hand with earlier requested "blue print" modes to make it easier to share designs with developers.

        • Javascript

          It would be nice if it had some simple scripting capability for python or Javascript.

          • screen expansion on the top for search

            Hey! In my prototype, i wanted to add a search at the top of the screen but I don't want it to be visible all the time so just like expanding the app surface on the bottom I wish that feature would work for the top as well. that way I can hide the search bar and it will slide down when I need it.

              • Adjust position of multiple instances of object at once

                I have the same button on many artboards, and would love to reposition all of them at once by selecting them all, then typing in the X-Y coordinates in the info panel. Doing each one at a time is a pain!

                • Change button order on "Share Online" - or give us link updating management tools

                  The button placement is currently "dangerous" since it means a fast clicker (me about 20 min ago) can accidentally hit "new link" when they want to update the link.

                  Updating the link is the more common feature from "share again" thus "share again" should lead to "update link" right underneath it, rather than the current behavior of "new link" button being where your cursor is after clicking "share again"

                  A better way to manage all links is what I really want - ability to tell XD to update other links than just the most recently generated "new link" would give…

                  • Selection

                    It would be easier have selection as like as Autocad.

                    From left top to right bottom, only includes / from left to right everything touched get selected.

                    • Features That Will Really Improve The Workflow

                      So, I have been using XD since the start of this app and I really enjoy it, but as I was previously using Sketch app and when I shifted to XD. I usually get stuck in doing many things. Below is the list of features that XD should add:

                      1. Text Gradients
                      Adding text gradients is very necessary as sometime we want to give a 3D look to our text using gradients and it is very difficult to do it in XD. I think it would be good to have a same dropdown as for shapes.

                      2. Multiple Fills
                      That…

                      • Feature request blog post

                        I have been using XD for over a year now. I recently did a blog post raving about how good it is.

                        In part 2 I do mention where it could be improved. I noticed that one bug bear has been fixed already and that's the pasting of prototype links. Good stuff!

                        Give these pages a read:

                        • Apply object-blur to all objects in a group

                          Would be nice to select a group (or several) and be able to assign object-blur to all objects within, rather than having to select individual objects first. probably also applies to other common properties.

                            When scrolling is activated there should be a couple of options available to i.e. keep certain objects untouched of scrolling (for menu bars / items etc.)

                              • Use point system

                                I'd like to be able to switch the design mode to use points for coordinates and sizes.
                                Translating points works really easily in other apps so I know exactly how to layout on a matching device size in Xcode.
                                The virtual pixel on XD does not match up to points 1:1 with Xcode.

                                • Create nib for Xcode

                                  It would be incredible to get an output .xib file using auto-layout from an XD art board.
                                  I know there would be an extra step of opening, then copying the xib into Main.storyboard but the time savings would easily make up for that without having to hack into Main.storyboard (though, maybe that's not a horrible idea?)

                                    • Comment inbox in web prototype

                                      I would like to have an inbox with all the new comments listed and each one linking to the appropriate page/screen.

                                      Right now you have to go through each page to see if there is a comment or not. This is tedious if you're using XD as a client review tool.

                                        I would like share my prototype in some kind of interactive file, that can works without internet and without any other program, something like a interactive video.

                                        • Connect with existing API for data

                                          We all need sample data as designer to fill our preview ! Sample data is great. But sometime you work on redesigning existing website/app/whatever so there is already an API with all the data you need. I'd love to have a feature that allow me to make request from a specific API to have revelant data !

                                          Since video is better than words. I'd love to have that for Adobe XD :

                                          (sorry if someone already talk about it)
