  3. Link objects for text edits

    I want to link text objects within a single board, or across multiple boards, so that when I change text in one object all linked text objects update to the new text.

    A simple use case:
    Update button label "Submit" on all buttons and across all boards to "Save".

  4. Improve Text Rendering at zoomed out views

    Text rendering is very poor at anything other than 100% view.

    Fitting to screen produces scratchy text lines — much poorer than the way InDesign would handle such a thing.
    Please improve this.

  5. settings

    I use the Windows version so idk how far the Mac version is in this, but where is "Settings"?! I'm used to customizing software I use so it perfectly match my needs. Here I can't even change keybindings, color theme, defaults, etc..
    I think this is really important feature - every software should have settings.

  6. create subclass

    Hi Guys
    I think should be great if when I made a symbol, I can change some properties without change the root symbol, the capacity to choose between create a new symbol or a sub symbol (the sub symbol take the properties no affected in the edition) with this property we can change general properties and affect the children.

    thanks

  9. text

    - Text with list feature, and able to change the bullet style
    - Allows tabs key in the text
    - Lines spacing should just be priority, e.g beside font size, location is not intuitive enough
    - Able to set global font colour and style, Eg. H1, H2, body

    Thanks for your feedback! Just in general, UserVoice is best when you file an individual idea instead of a group of ideas. Most of the ideas you’ve submitted are already in our database. Please upvote for them!

  12. awsome for new users! But you should add some more features like some of them in sketch>

    While prototyping more virtual options would have worked great. But again this is very good platform for learners or beginers.

    Thanks for trying out XD! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you make specific feature requests. In the meantime, our common suggestions are available for you to upvote within the system. Please do take a look at existing suggestions and upvote to let us know you’re interested!

  13. 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…

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! We really appreciate the thoughtfulness you’ve put into this post. UserVoice works best if you split your ideas up (for merging and upvoting), so we’d appreciate it if you could upvote existing stories or file new ones.

    As it is, a number of your suggestions already exist in the database. For instance:

  16. XD Feedback: hard to select and group/ungroup and scroll

    Here is my feedback from using XD for a day.

    1. You can't really figure out how to do anything without reading the tutorial. The main issue is scrolling. Needs to be more intuitive. I nknow scroll bars aren't in vogue, but that would make it possible for people to scroll. Using a large screen external monitor and mouse, you don't have touch and the touchpad isn't as convenient.

    2. Selecting elements of compound objects is REALLY HARD. You can either click about 100 times until you get it, or zoom way in, click a smaller number of times, and…

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when each feature request is split up into a separate feedback session, so that others can upvote. We appreciate the confusion, and hope you found that:

    1. Mousewheel support for scrolling exists, similar to our other tools
    2. Ctrl+Click will direct select objects inside groups
    3. Group and ungroup are accessible in the context menu (right click)

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  17. embed the

    Thank you very much for releasing embedding on external websites. it's really cool and helpful to show use the same prototypes in my portfolio.

    I need to have few functions for the iframe.
    1. Ability to fullscreen
    2. Next and previous screen,
    3. View it on your device button show up a QR Code where user can view the app full screen on their device.

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult for us to split up the feedback into specific feature requests, so it would be great if you could file each one of these separately so that we can address them. That being said, it might be difficult for us to do these things within our iframe, as the commands you’re asking for need to be done in the parent HTML, not in the iframe. (Basically, you’ll need to do it on your side; it’s not something we can do on our side.)

  18. Prototype Spaghetti

    This is not really an idea.. But the strong request to -fix- the prototype view. This is just mind boggling.

  19. Symbols in Windows 10

    I was very excited when the latest update to XD added the Symbols feature. But I was very disappointed with the functionality of the same. These are a few suggestions I have that I would like to see in the Symbols panel!

    1. Organization: There should be a way to name and organize symbols. As f now the symbols are names as 'Symbol 1', 'Symbol 2' , etc,. and their copies come up as 'Symbol 1- 1', Symbol 1- 2', etc. It would be great to be able to name the symbols so that i can see their names in…

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you separate out each one of your requests instead of lumping them all together. You should also search and upvote for existing ideas that match your own.

    For instance:

    Hope that helps!

  20. Improvements

    I am a constant user of XD and I love and bet on it but I miss a better text tool like Indesign. It should also be able to edit links directly in other CC software, as Indesign does. And I've never been able to use the library to work and export the assets correctly to the developer, that should be easy, to integrate design and development more quickly, as in Sketch APPs or software like webflow. Another point is to think about how to work the microinterinterations and animations of the direct interfaces in XD. And lastly work responsive…

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file individual requests instead of all lumped together in one request.

    You should definitely search for some of the improvements in the database, as many of them already exist. For instance:

    As for your issue with exporting assets, you might want to check out this article I wrote about exporting assets in XD. https://medium.com/thinking-design/protip-exporting-assets-in-adobe-xd-c586996de703

    Hope this helps!
