  1. Increment guide

    After the user drops a Guide on the artboard they can 'click' the Guide Selector UI which will auto-place another guide using the same pixel measurements as the previous dropped guide.

    e.g. User drops a guide at 50 pixels from the Top they then click on the Guide Selector UI element, not drag, and another guide will be automatically placed at 100 pixels from the top (+50 pixels from the previous guide).

    Clicking twice on the Guide Selector UI twice in a row would auto-place 2 more guides; first at 100px and second at 150px; thereby creating a 3 guide…

  2. Repeat grid - Overflow option/skips last item/Max number of items

    Repeat grid - Overflow option/skips last item/Max number of items.

    When working on complex responsive layouts, certain repeat grids will cut off the final image on certain resolutions, avoid this with smart overflow. Simple overflow checkbox would be welcome as well, just like a max number of items.

    This would make a significant difference concerning presenation to stakeholders and maintaining an atomic solution.

  3. Hosted version of XD

    My team has computers not very powerfull and we suppose to have a common server to overcome this issue.
    Could be possible to have a common server where we all can access?

  4. Use Shift/Alt keys to speed up/slow down draggable values (scrubby bars)

    As of right now - In the property panel, text boxes with numerical values can be clicked and dragged up and down with the mouse to quickly change the value without typing.

    Just like Photoshop - If I could hold down SHIFT to increase the speed of the value changing, or ALT to slow it down (for better precision) this would benefit the feature.
    For an object's rotation value, SHIFT could snap to certain angle increments. It's extremely common to rotate something by 45° or 90°.

  5. Link together artboards by marquee selecting

    Drawing a box around multiple art boards should allow the user to quickly link and un-link the screens together.

  7. Export hidden icons to developer prototype

    I have noticed that assets that I have selected to be uploaded to my developer prototype only seems to include assets that are visible on the art board. It would be good if the developers had access to all the assets I have selected for upload in the asset panel regardless to whether they are visible on the art board or not.

    I turn visibility off for some of my icons as they change in different states and it is easier to keep them layered but the ones I'm not currently using tuned off (flash on/off/auto for example)

    Thanks :)

  8. Keep text editable when converted to a component

    XD v 19.1.22.6.

    I converted a button into component. Duplicated the component, and went to edit the text on the next button, and it was no longer editable. The text became a shape when converted to a component.

    Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but seems important.

  9. Ability to select individual file type/size on export

    I have been discussing with colleagues, the ability to save multiple types of file type when ready to export forcdev. In reality, some assets would be SVG, so PNG and some maybe JPG. Currently, if you batch export, you have to save them all as one type of file.

  10. Shortcuts don't work in other languages

    I'm using the English version of Adobe UX and a Farsi keyboard. But I can't use shortcuts when I'm using Farsi. I have to change the keyboard language in order to use shortcuts.

  11. Overlay artboard background should be visible

    Currently when I change my artboard fill to black, and decrease transparency by a percentage, to simulate the 'lightbox' effect for my design, then go into Prototype mode and select 'Overlay' as my action - the fill on my artboard gets deselected. At first i thought this was a bug, but after reviewing the bugs list, it appears this is by design.

    I would like to suggest a couple improvements:


    1. Instead of 'auto-deselecting' the fill, set it to 0% transparency instead -> This will make interacting faster for those who want to go back in and change the fill color,…

  12. Save custom transition settings

    When you have multiple transitions with specific values, say for example a swipe animation it becomes extremely daunting trying to remember all the various transition settings if you cannot label them and save them for future use. And it's a tedious process to set these individually since you can't copy a preset either. If you use an auto-animate in one artboard the program defaults to that over the slide transition.

    You should probably also see which transition you have in the project. When you highlight two artboards and see the flowchart. And Copying transitions would be great fun!

    We use…

    Thanks for your feedback! I’m going to leave this open to save custom transition settings, but I also want to mention that UserVoice works best when you only file one idea per ticket. Please feel free to file new tickets for your secondary ideas. Thanks!

  13. Voice Prototyping: Choosing the Speech Playback option automatically brings the Time Trigger

    Whenever I want to do voice prototyping and have the prototype play a speech back to me, I always forget that I also need to select the time trigger option.

    I honestly do not understand why I need to remember to select two options just have speech playback?

    Why can't I just select speech playback option and it automatically selects the time trigger option for me?

  14. Imbed Code Block

    Please allow the embedding of a code block within your design. That way you can integrate existing assets or 3erd party designs. This is particularly helpful for iframes to interactive experiences or components of animation.

  15. single artboard online link (in the right click context menu)

    Allow quickly getting the link of a particular artboard so I don't need to find the exact link in the browser since I have lots of artboards in my big projects and would like not to spend 5 minutes everytime I make a new update of the project.

    I often want to guide the client to a specific area of a project and a Copy Link button would be more than welcome. (in the right click context menu)

  16. Option to remove "resolve" button in Design Specs

    I would really like to have an option so that the resolve button is not visible or clickable.
    I use the “share for development feature” to give students extra help, but if they mistakenly click resolve, the help is gone, and then other students would not be able to get the help, so it would be nice to make the, resolve the button not visible or clickable

  17. Set keyboard focus to the symbol name when adding a symbol

    When I create a symbol, XD current adds a symbol, but it does not set keyboard focus to that symbol's name.

    This means that I have to move my mouse over to the Symbol section of the Assets panel, double-click that symbol and then type the name. This is a pain, particularly when creating a lot of symbols.

    Instead, when I press Ctrl+K and a new symbol is created, I would like the field to be opened for renaming and my keyboard focus to be set to there. The same thing should happen if I create a symbol in another…

  18. Temporarily lock XD from edits

    Be nice if I leave my desk and just to be safe there should be a lock button on top right corner with the other tools that will not let anyone by accident click my mouse and move anything by accident be in positioning of art-board or assets.

  20. Professional services: design consulting with Adobe XD

    If Adobe could provide online sessions, or in their stores, with customers who use Adobe XD. To explain, many people aren't familiar with the tool and it takes a lot of practice. This occurs to me, and one of the big tech companies are already doing this, Apple. There is something called 'Today At Apple,' which includes loads of different sessions to help customers. (Link https://www.apple.com/today/) If Adobe XD could include this within the app on Mac or the phone app, it would be useful for it's customers.
