  1. Non-rectangular tap zones

    I prototype AR apps and whatnot, and have tried to use the Pen tool to draw a tappable shape around a simulated camera area. Trouble is, XD simplifies it to a bounding rect to trap taps, which can consume a lot that doesn't conform visually. It also makes overlaps trickier.

  2. Mark / Label Key Pages (Artboards)

    When I create a project, I usually get a lot of arboards, and get loads of small varioations / overlays - so when I want for example print all, or export all to a PDF I will get LOADS of pages which I manually have to remove.. In some projects I also have the Mobile Layout too.

    So I would like to be able to Mark / Label / Flag / Group for some key artboards (like: Mobile 1, 2, 3, 4... or Desktop 1, 2, 3, 4... or maybe just mark as Key Artboard)
    So that when I then…

  3. Add export to context menu on artboards

    Would it be possible to introduce a short-cut option (right-click on Mac) to export each page directly from an artboard?

  4. Add text alignment as a property in the assets panel

    I would like to save the text alignment as a property in the assets panel, so that I don't have to readjust the alignment all the time.

    几个严重的缺陷!请赶快更新版本!

    1.资源面板中的字符样式存储功能,只能存储字体类别、颜色、大小,却无法存储左对齐、右对齐、居中对齐!真的超级麻烦,我每次都要重新调整对齐!

    2.形状描边无法使用渐变!难道XD就只能做界面吗?画个ICON都不行吗?

    3.描边无法扩展成形状!Sketch都能扩展啊啊啊啊啊啊!

    4.不能预设形状!每次都要画完形状后都要取消一次描边,恶心死了

    我将此更改为关于在资产面板中存储对齐。 其余建议已经在数据库中,需要您的upvote。

    *梯度中风:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/17796841
    *扩大笔划形状:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13808037
    *形状库:https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13392015

    此消息已被机器翻译。

    I’m changing this to be about storing alignment in the assets panel. The rest of the suggestions are already in the database and need your upvote.

  5. Transition popup's destination should show artboards in Z-order

    At present, the list of Destinations within the prototype settings popup (see attached) is shown arbitrarily, seemingly having no sort order at all. For a document with more than a few Artboards, this makes trying to find the one you want really hard.

    The expected behaviour from my perspective is that the list of Destinations just follows the existing ordering of Artboards in the Layers panel. This way, a designer can order things as they like and then see the same order shown there.

    This is using Adobe XD 13.0.12.14 (latest version at time of writing).

  6. Layout grid should work like InDesign columns

    The grid system should work and look just like the columns in InDesign, the grid is a common thing for all graphic designers and making them look different across apps makes it all feel non cohesive.

  7. Text Frame Options like Indesign

    Because InDesign is such a powerful layout tool, it's textframe options are very helpful in typography (rightclick textframe > textframe options). It allows you to adjust padding inside of the text frame by the unit as well as vertical alignement.

    I know there are other requests for these items separately but I believe XD is capable of having text frames similar to that of InDesign and these would belong together.

  8. Improve the method to set Speech Playback

    The method to set a Playback action appears quite complicated for many of my course attendees to grasp (setting the Artboard handle as a Timed animation with a Speech action) and definitely too difficult to discover. It even gets worse when they try to understand why to drag the handle from destination to source (as indicated in many Help files). Why not tell users to simply click the stub to invoke the heads-up display and get that initial confusion out of the way ?

  9. Fixed-zoom preview window

    It could be great to have a feature where i can open a small window that shows a highlighted part of the artboard in 100% zoom, and then in my actual workflow i can zoom into 6400%.

    This way i can make very small changes to something like icons, on a pixel level, without having to zoom in and out to preview the changes.

  10. Printer-friendly prototypes

    The ability to print full pages from the shared prototype screen would be great.

    I know you can display the prototype full screen then print, but that compresses the page horizontally and doesn't allow you to view the whole page, just what's currently in the window.

  11. Text based management of links

    I create projects for commercial web applications and I try and prototype many function points. This can lead to hundreds of links and cross-links. I would like to be able to

    2) Look at the prototype links in a more text based format so I can search and replace links, bulk add links through a text editor.

    OLD

    1) Set a core/common link for a symbol or element so when I copy it to other pages, it keeps the link. For example, copying the "home" element to another dashboard should keep the link back to the home page.

    I’m updating this to focus on the text management of links. In the future, please do file individual ideas in separate tickets so that we can better merge them with other ideas!

  12. When in embed mode, enable pressing left/right keys to switch to prev/next artboard

    Enable the use of the left/right arrow keys in embedded prototypes in order to give users possibility to scroll artboards. I know it works if all artboards are not wired, but it should work also if these are wired. Like in prototypes or preview. It is not clear why is it excluded from embed mode.

    Some prototypes have multiple clickable hotspots so users have to search for them and learn their way through. Giving them possibility to use common arrow keys is a way to get sure they will be able to see all artboards and find their way back…

  13. Automatically vectorize icon fonts on export

    We using in our project Font Awesome 5 pro, and i have issue with my workflow. Basically i find icon on web https://fontawesome.com and click to copy glyph or for known icons i just type "star" or "exclamation" etc. Everything works for me until i need to export data for programmers. If i mark icon for export, XD just export svg with textfield filled with glyph from font, but its useless as icon export. I need some option to mark icons to vectorize before exporting. Thanks!

  14. stack prototype link connection points

    stack the link connection points between artboards as currently when zoomed out they overlap each other making it very unclear and hard to select them

  15. Don't Delete Color Swatch for Icon Color When Marking Icon for Batch Export

    If you mark an icon for Batch Export (which creates an Asset panel in the design specs) it will remove the color being used for that icon from the Color Swatch panel.

    My workaround is to duplicate my icon in my artboard so that I have a copy that isn't marked for batch export and then the color information for the icon will appear in the Colors panel in the design specs.

  17. Clarify UI for corner radius in property inspector

    I've seen hundreds of newbies get their hands on Xd for the first time, and they always hit the separate corners button before setting the desired value, not understanding that the value entry box is already related to the button on the left. Please re-arrange them and use a more conventional and intuitive mapping of these buttons.

    Got it! Thanks for the clarification and the suggestion. I’ve edited the title to be more concise and applicable to your suggestion, and I’ll leave it open for others to upvote.

  18. A larger connection handle on touch screens, please...

    I had the luxury of using Adobe XD on a Microsoft Surface Studio, for a whole week. Designing and controlling a project with your fingers at such a large screen sure feels great, but... didn't anyone of the XD team ever notice that the connection handles are just too small to touch and drag ?

  20. Automatically renumber artboards

    Is it possible to make the names of automatic tables? By working on ten tables, I will always have to name them with the prefix numbers (1 onboarding screens / 2 landing screens / 3 ....)
    when I get to board 20, I want to add a board between 4 and 5, so I have to manually rewrite and number all the other cards that follow.
    It is too boring to spend a lot of time each time manually updating the numbers.

    Thank you for thinking of a solution.
