  1. Preserve CC Library Vectors when importing from Photoshop to XD

    I have vectors in my CC library for various logos and symbols. I originally started my projected in Photoshop. When I imported my PSD into XD, all the vectors were converted to low resolution PNGs with no dynamic links to the CC library.
    If this program is truly meant to fit the ecosystem, it needs to preserve those CC Library links across every platform, including communications between Photoshop, Illustrator and XD.

  2. Custom Artboard Order in Grid View

    Regarding the "Shared Presentation" on xd.adobe.com/view/...

    The "Grid Feature" is helpful. However, it would be nice to allow the user to create custom ordering for the artboards. Perhaps in XD's "Prototype" mode, instead of just a stacking order, offer a way for the user to drag the artboards to reorder them and use that as the display order on the View page "Grid" layout.

    Alternatively, it might be helpful to allow the user to create hierarchical lists (e.g. tree nodes) in XD. Then users could view as a Grid or Hierarchy on the XD View page.

  3. Prevent pasting SVG into text area when an object is on the clipboard

    I frequently (at least once/day) hit CMD-V when I'm reaching for CMD-B while editing text. If I have an object on my clipboard, XD inserts the raw SVG code into my text area. (OK, Maybe using my left hand for B is bad typing form, but I'm old and it's never going to change)

    This is especially annoying if the clipboard contents are large, as my system grinds to a halt for several seconds, preventing a quick CMD-Z.

    I can't think of a scenario when this behavior would be desirable. I get the value of copying SVG, but the paste…

  4. Alexa Preview plugin - screen dimension selection

    ADOBE XD v 21.2.12.3 does not preview to "Amazon Echo Show 5" properly. I keep getting black bars on either side of my layouts regardless of what size I set up my artboards. The internet says the Show 5 screen dimensions are 960x480, but XD won't do that. Any workarounds?

  5. Do not automatically highlight the key stroke in the Interaction Pane

    When I have an artboard set to transition with a keystroke, the keystroke automatically highlights and is editable when I select an artboard. I cannot then use Ctrl 3 to zoom into that art board. Instead, it changes the keystroke to Ctrl 3.

  6. Allow border or fill color to be focused so I can use saved colors from components to apply to fill OR border

    Similar to the 'Color' tool panel from AI.

    This can/should also incorporate other features like seeing the hex or color build information of the fill or outline without having to click into a secondary panel.

    Tie in key commands like 'x' for swapping the focus from outline to fill, 'd' for resetting to base black/white, etc.

  7. Add new colors and character styles to the top of the list in the assets panel

    When adding Character Styles the first character style stays on top and the other styles adds underneath that, but when adding Colors the latest added color "pushes down" the already added colors. Would like the first added Color to stay on top, I know you can change the order later but it would just speed up my workflow.

    All the best!

  8. Android Mobile character Styles Specs must be in "SP"

    Currently when we share Android Layout to the developers it was showing in DP for all in specs but as per platform guidelines prefer when it is character styles specs should be "SP" it is stands for Scale independent pixels. It is same as dp unit but it is also scaled by the user's font size preference.

    Preferable request is meaningful as it will not confuse to the developers hope it make sense.

  9. While renaming layers disable artboard interaction

    When renaming layers I often use CMD+Shift+arrow keys to highlight text. I have some custom keyboard shortcuts setup for the nudge+resize plug-in that use the same CMD+Shift+arrow keys to grow or shrink items. It would be great if while I was renaming layers I could use these shortcuts to highlight text without it affecting the item I have selected on the artboard.

  10. Lock position of an element but keep other properties editable

    XD Version 20.2.12.1
    Windows 10 Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.615)

    If there is a way to do this, I apologize for the post.

    Almost daily, I work with "grouped" elements that represent a section of a design. For example, a panel that contains sub panels, etc. Often I want to "marquee" select several items within the panel to adjust their locations, etc., but I end up selecting the panel background and moving it instead.

    It would be nice if we could lock, say, only the position of a certain element and only that element(so it doesn't move) instead of locking…

  11. Android asset export: add feature to include the dpi in asset name

    When exporting Android assets, I'd like to see an option to "include dpi in asset name".

    iOS assets add the @1x, @2x, @3x to the icon names, which I find useful. I would like to have the same option for Android, where mdpi, hdpi, xhdpi, etc. is added to each asset and see them all in one folder.

    I export a large amount of assets every week and this could really speed up our process.

  12. Ability to check the size of multiple items in Development

    When viewing in the inspector mode in the browser, would be ideal to be able to select multiple elements at the same time, in order to check the total size. This is necessary for when a developer is building the layout templates.

  13. Design Spec in Inches

    We should be able to see Design specs in inches as well. Some Enterprise development tools (BI TOOLS) only support Inches as the measurement value.
    So we are able to design, review and prototype but can't share design specs, that's still a manual process.

  14. Move top bar menu (on left) to right, above menu panel to allow for easy switching

    It would be great if you could switch between Design & Prototype menus right there at the right-side panel. It's a little thing, but it would save us from moving back/forth across the screen to change menus.

  16. Remove raster smoothing at 200% zoom

    When there are raster images pasted in to the project and I want to move some objects around with pixel precision I do Cmd+"+" or Cmd+2 to zoom in (200%) which is enough for me. But blurry images make it hard to do a pixel-to-pixel alignments. 300% zoom though looks perfect (pixelated and sharp). Could you please just disable raster smoothing at 200% zoom?

  17. Turn off spell check by default

    Of course it's set ot german and of course now I have to hunt down some setting somewhere which I dont want to do. Spellcheck should not be on by default, anyone who wants to use such a feature will actively search for it, the vast majority of users do not want it, especially not when it uses some localised setting from who knows where that is now constantly uppercasing all my stuff without me ever having this problem before.

  18. Allow components to be used in boolean operations

    I would find it useful in creating more complex and easily editable components if they could be used in boolean operations and retaining their linkage to the master component.

    Right now, when I use a component in a boolean operation, the green outline becomes red and editing the master component does not affect the components that were used in the boolean.

    This is one way I've seen google's material design components being implemented in Sketch and I found that approach very handy.

  20. Presets for exporting items

    Similar to how Sketch does it: when I mark something for export, give me a way to put the export settings at that level so it REMEMBERS and I don't have to pick which file type and compression percentage EVERY TIME.
