  1. Preview Bounds

    Like in Illustrator, to have the ability to edit things with preview bounds for things that have a border that are done with the pen tool/line tool/imported SVGs

  2. [Win] Ability to close project and still open another file without reopening app

    It would be awesome if every time I opened the wrong file, after closing it, I would still get the initial screen where I can choose another file.

    As of right now, the project closes and I have to reopen the application to choose another file.

  3. Global color swatches across the application

    Introduce a feature to Swatches, where you can access all your colours that you've saved in other projects and be able to view them in all projects, similar to Photoshop

  4. Display file's last edit date and time beside file name

    Either display the last edit/change in the window title where the file name resides or better yet, each artboard also displays the last change time and date. This is very important for large companies which has multiple designers working on a single file.

    Please see attached mockup, refer to the middle window title.

  5. Add rename, edit, and export to assets panel context menu

    The addition of a few features to the right click menu in the assets panel would definitely improve productivity.


    1. Rename - The ability to right click and rename objects in the assets panel would greatly improve the ability to organize objects instead of the current method of navigating to list view and then renaming objects.


    2. Edit - The ability to right click and edit any asset (as is currently possible only with colors) would be extremely useful for assets that are used infrequently in large projects that would have to be found manually and changed on the canvas.


    3. Export -…

  6. 50% zoom keyboard shortcut

    Similar to Zoom In Cmd+1=100%, Cmd+2= 200% it would be nice to have Zoom Out, say Cmd+Shift+2 = 50%

    Currently the only way to go 50% from keyboard is hit Cmd+- twice.

  7. Automatically average/modify uneven gaps for dashed border strokes

    If a dash and gap lengths do not evenly go around the circumference of an object, a merged dash will occur, making it uneven. To avoid the merge or the incorrect gap on the top, XD would have to average/modify the gaps or the lengths so to automatically change values for those. I hope to see this option implemented for border strokes in the future.

  8. Measure overlap between objects

    Currently we can only measure the distance between the two objects that either don't overlap or are entirely separate. It would be nice to between the top edge of two object that overlap (for example, between object B side E and object A side A, labeled as measurement 1). I would like to be able to select the edge of the object I want to measure from and see the measurement to the selected edge of another object.

  9. Widen Scroll Bar on Layers Window.

    The scroll bar for the layers window is narrow and takes precise mouse work to select it on a laptop or high resolution screen. Double the thickness so it is easy to select and drag. Great app.

  10. Add Fixed Position to right click/context menu

    The fixed position option is fantastic but could benefit from being easier to access. Adding the fixed position option to the context menu or just adding a a keyboard shortcut would greatly benefit many designers' workflows.

  11. Preview Window Behind Context Windows

    If context windows (color pickers, preview, publish, etc.) appeared in front of the preview window, but everything else remained the same (i.e. the preview window is still always in front of the canvas) I think the annoyance of having info unexpectedly hidden by the preview window would be avoided.

    This applies to both Design & Prototype mode.

  12. Touchpad slide optimization

    触摸板滑动优化

    在支持多点触控的电脑上,使用双指在触控板上进行滑动时会出现bug,导致控件乱选择和位移,希望优化对双指滑动的支持——当使用双指在触摸板上滑动时,自由滚动画布

    On computers that support multi-touch, there will be bugs when using two fingers to slide on the touchpad, causing the controls to be randomly selected and shifted, hoping to optimize the support for two-finger sliding - when using two fingers on the touchpad Free scrolling canvas when sliding

  14. Allow the option to default the selection tool to direct select

    It would be great if we had an option of whatever we want to select group or specific layer via select tool default options. I guess it's much more frequently used to pick just one element instead of picking whole group.

    So for me, for example, it would be much easier if by default it would be to just pick one emelement by click, rather then to press CMD all the time i want to change something inside of group.

  15. Support Bezier point data on export of SVG

    I have issue with SVG generated by XD for usage in Icon Font generator. I use this one: https://www.npmjs.com/package/gulp-iconfont

    There is online generator:
    http://nfroidure.github.io/svgiconfont/

    I attach one example file generate by XD: heart-xd.svg
    Result: https://cl.ly/272g0m1g202H/Image%202018-06-11%20at%208.16.09%20odp..png

    And one re-saved by Illustrator: heart-illustator.svg
    Result: https://cl.ly/28382e3k2v0C/Image%202018-06-11%20at%208.16.56%20odp..png

    Because if I open the svg in illustrator and re-save it, it'll work fine. I am suspecting the svg syntax in XD doesn't work properly.

    I got information that XD SVG does not export bezier point data so scenario you’re describing is expected with how the feature is currently designed.

    Maybe connected to this request:

  16. Unnatural scrolling on iPad

    When scrolling through artboards it happens very unnaturally. As soon as my finger moves 1cm it swipes to the next artboard.

    A more natural behavior is that the artboard swipes "with my finger".

  17. Reference points to the vertical and horizontal centers when editing a path

    When I'm distorting a shape (say a rectangle) into another shape (say a trapezoid), I'd like to know see reference guide to the vertical and horizontal centers, so I know how far to move the distortion points.

  18. Pan with ctrl+scrolling the mouse wheel

    It would be nice if you could pan the same way as with other Adobe products using ctrl+scrolling the mouse wheel. I find myself zooming in when trying to pan.

  19. A Way to Block Some Users from From Commenting

    I had some issues with an employee who was commenting a storm of uneducated comments on some of my published prototypes.

    The prototypes I post are mainly for handing off specs to developers and to discuss aspects of the UI with them. Other people outside this workflow are able and welcome to look at the prototypes. However, it is our expectation that people outside the Design-Dev relationship should refrain from making comments. If they do make a comment, they . should only make comments that pertain to their profession and not to propose design changes since they are not designers…

  20. Remove the padding around artboards on file open

    Currently when you open a XD document , it opens very much zoomed out.

    It could be nice that when you open a document, all artboards fit to the screen.

    It would only save a few seconds but using the software on a daily basis and these seconds add up eventually.
